Friday fun: SOA is the only thing Chuck Norris can't kill.


  • SOA is the only thing Chuck Norris can't kill.
  • SOA invented the internet, and the internet was invented for SOA.
  • SOA is not complex. You are just dumb.
  • In the last year, SOA increased Turkey's GDP by a factor of 10.
  • One person successfully described SOA completely, and immediately died.
  • Another person successfully described SOA completely, and was immediately outsourced.
  • Larry Ellison once died in a terrible accident, but was quickly given SOA. He came back to life, built a multibillion dollar software company, and now flies fighter jets.
  • Guns don't kill people, the SOA WS-* stack kills people.
  • SOA can write and compile itself.
  • SOA is an anagram for OSA, which means female bear in spanish. It is a well-known fact in the spanish-speaking world that female bears are able to model business processes and optimize reusable IT assets better than any other hibernating animal.
  • SOA is so great 10 facts aren't enough.
  • SOA is the mistress to all CIOs.

8. Chuck Norris burst the dot com bubble.
9. All browsers support the hex definitions #chuck and #norris for the colors black and blue.
10. MySpace actually isn’t your space, it’s Chuck’s (he just lets you use it).
