Powers and Abilities

Speed: Chuck Norris also has some speed based myths. One such myth, likely the most popular speed based Chuck Norris myth, is that he can run around the world and punch himself in the back of the head. That is speed so great it literally defies physics in not just physics defying speed, but also defies physics in many other ways as well, although still purely based on speed.
