10 reasons why Bruce Lee can never be replaced

Everyone probably knows who Bruce Lee is. The man with the fastest fists, a man usually seen using nunchaku (nunchuks to us Americans) in his martial arts movies that dominated the 1970s. Here are 10 things about him that you probably either knew or didn't know.
1. Bruce Lee could replace a dime on a person's palm with a penny before they could close it
2. He could perform the "Dragon Flag" move for more than 30 minutes

3. When directors made movies with him in it, they had to speed up the cameras to 32 frames a second instead of the usual 24 because he was that fast and to also make them seem more realistic
4. It was discovered that his speed to react and punch from three feet away was five hundredths of a second!
5. He once kicked a man so hard that he broke the arm of the person behind him as he fell
6. He could perform push ups using only his thumb and index finger on one hand!
7. Despite only weighing between 130-135 pounds, he could easily do 50 one arm chin-ups and also could do push-ups with up to 125 pounds on his back
8. In 1970, he severely damaged his sacral nerve. This left doctors telling him he could never do Kung Fu again. They were proved wrong!
9. In 1962, he was in a fight that lasted 11 seconds and in that time he managed 15 punches and a kick that defeated his opponent
10. In Afghanistan, there is a boy named Bruce Hazara (originally known as Abas Alizada) who bears a very striking resemblance to Bruce Lee and wants to follow in Lee's footsteps
