Adding so called "facts" about Vin Diesel is considered a short-term bannable offense (8 hours - 2 days depending on my mood and your other contributions). These things are not Uncyclopedia material; please have your fun with the external link to the Vin Diesel fact generator. -- 18:25, 17 Jan 2006 (UTC)
Why spoil the fun? --Mockstar 14:25, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
Yeah anyways...the Mr T/Vin Diesel/Chuck Norris Articles with facts were the only reason i started comming to uncyclopedia.
Ditto. Someone showed me THIS very page which is why I started coming to this site. Shame shame mods
- That is really unfortunate because the facts are not indiginous to Uncyclopedia. They were taken from other places on the web; just try doing a google search for Vin Diesel Facts and you'll see what I mean. -- 21:17, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
How about ones that specifically pertain to Uncyc? Vin Diesel ate a grue, Vin Diesel won The Game, etc. Since they wouldn't make sense on the Fact Generator, it makes sense to put them here. It's a reasonable compromise. --[[User:Nintendorulez|Nintendorulez | talk]] 20:35, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
- No, facts like that would be too inside as far as jokes go and not all that funny. -- 21:17, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
There were plenty which weren't from the generator, and besides what's the harm in collating them here? Part of what made it funny was the ridiculously long list. Are you a Chuck Norris fan? Is this what this is really about!? --Mockstar 15:36, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
- No, I am a list unfan; you will notice that I was also responsible for removing a similar list from Chuck Norris and Mr. T. -- 19:17, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
Well, the Vin Fact Generator stopped accepting new facts after they switched to their new site. While they do add Chuck facts, the moderators have ignored EVERY SINGLE NEW SUBMISSION to the Mr. T and Vin database. Not one Vin fact submitted since the new site has been accepted or rejected. They are all still pending. So frankly, this is the only place we can add them. --[[User:Nintendorulez|Nintendorulez | talk]] 20:15, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
- Why not put them on a subpage, like Vin Diesel/Facts? --[[User:Nintendorulez|Nintendorulez | talk]] 20:17, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
Yay! --Mockstar 16:09, 20 March 2006 (UTC)
The Pitch Black ones were hilarious but some of the filmography was definitely distasteful. I would remove it but I know YOU PEOPLE would find it funny.
Which ones? I must have done about 10 of those and the rest seem pretty damn funny to me... --Mockstar 16:09, 20 March 2006 (UTC)
i wish we could at least remove the page then or something, it's quite annoying to find a page with only the text "[" on it :( that's just my opinion though. Warumono256 19:38, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
Its fah-qing ridiculous... and 90% of it is "2 Fast 2 Furious" jokes... do people have any sense of originality? I know the FAQ on humor suggest repetition... but it's gotta be slightly funny the first time for that to work. Can we burninate most of these, keep about 7 or 8 good ones... and be done?

I know what you mean. My friends and I made up a bunch of them, and lately I've felt that they're being buried under a lot of unfunny and poorly written entries. The FAQ also suggests mixing some real world facts into your BS, which is why I based Tu Fast Tu Furious on some real world data. It was based on the Larry David joke about how he's glad he's not a wealthy spanish landowner, and La Posada, which is an actual hotel. I also wrote 2222222, which is my small tribute to Mitch Hedberg, who I was fortunate enough to see in person before he died. I was especially proud of both of these, and I would appreciate it if other people put as much effort into their entries as I put into mine. Admittedly, both titles are just plays off of 2 Fast 2 Furious, and both have illegal races (one street, one boat), but the whole idea, at least to me, was that I took what started as just a stale joke and built a story around it. I also wrote secSECsec (triple sec) and xXxmas (triple xmas), but, while I like the names, I couldn't think of a lot of content for them, so if someone wants to get rid of them so the other entries don't get lost in the crowd (or, better yet, improve on them), then I'll understand.

I just took out some of the numerous 2 Fast 2 Furious entries. I left 2 Kill Or Not 2 Kill, because I like the name, although I do think it could use some work. FlickMontana 11:58, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
xXxMas is pretty funny. secSECsec is kinda funny too. I wasn't hammering you. I just removed a -bunch- more of the crappy ones. There are still 30 entries in the Filmography, which is probably still too much, but at least now you can find some of the witty/funny ones through the clutter.

hey wasn't he that bald monk dude with the dots on his head on the DBZ movie???
