Facts About Jack Bauer
Just for fun, for you 24 fans out there, here is a website that offers random facts about Jack Bauer.
Lets get one thing straight, the only reason you are conscious right now is because Jack Bauer does not feel like carrying you.
Jack Bauer doesn't miss. If he didn't hit you it's because he was shooting at another terrorist twelve miles away.
Jack Bauer arm once wrestled Superman. The stipulations were the loser had to wear his underwear on the outside of his pants.

If everyone on "24" followed Jack Bauer's instructions, it would be called "12".
And, my favorite...
Jack Bauer's influence is so strong that with one call to the NCAA, the deceased, former director of CTU George Mason was able to make it to the Final Four.
Some of these are pretty funny. Of course, some of the other "facts" submitted to the site are rather nasty and hateful. There's a slam at Rosa Parks, a number of anti-Arab comments, and some stuff with sexist subtexts as well. I was doing some searching last night for 24 fan sites, hoping to find a discussion forum about the show or something of the sort, because I thought it might be fun to engage in speculation with others about What Happens Next. But most of the sites I turned up either were hateful right-wing sites, or were linked to them in some way. It's a little disturbing that a show I quite like seems to have so many devotees who are... well, not my sort of people.
But the Random Facts About Jack Bauer are funny, anyway. The non-racist/sexist ones, at least.
