Another site… I’m on a roll lately!
ChuckNorrisIsGod.com was started as a joke when a friend threw a dinner party over the weekend with the theme “Chuck Norris is a Classy Guy”. I bought the domain name sunday, cystitis wrote the site through monday into tuesday morning when it was released. Within 2 days I had 250 unique IPs that had visited the site already!
The site is a place to pull together all of those Chuck Norris Facts such as:
If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can’t see Chuck Norris, you may be only seconds away from death.
and of course:
Chuck Norris uses a night light. Not because Chuck Norris is afraid of the dark, but the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris.
The site runs on user-submitted jokes that can then be ranked. It’s pretty exciting to watch the database grow! I used AJAX for the ratings (done in Roundhouse Kicks instead of Stars, of course), so that you can rate as many as are on one page without reloading. Unneeded page-loads would slow the flow of Chuck Norris to your brain!
It’s kind of pathetic that I spend countless hours writing web applications and really tricky algorithms all day, and I throw together one site as a joke in a few hours and it’s already growing more rapidly than any of my other site/programs in the past. Oh, well… I’m having fun with it!
(I’ve been hopped up on the Caffeine for a week now… I am seriously probably announcing another new site in the next day or two. Until then, go to ChuckNorrisIsGod.com and kick around a bit.)
