    First there were the Vin Diesel Facts, which came about from the SomethingAwful forums after ‘The Pacifier’ came out. Then there was the Chuck Norris Facts, based on the Vin Diesel ones, and finally, the computer science/computer security community created the Bruce Schneier Facts. The facts are all in the style of “[Name] can do [badass action].”


  27. Manoj Venkat

    1) Vin diesel
    2) Chuck Norris
    3) Bruce Scheiner.

    All these persons are parodied as the western “Rajnikanths”?
