    1. Bond spends significant time womanising, drinking, and spending MI5's(taxpayer's) money, living the high life. So he's somewhat distracted for most of the time.

    2. Bond relies too much on gagdgets ie. explosive devices, guns, high tech stuff. He only uses unarmed combat when there's no weapon lying around.
    You obviously haven't seen the new Bond. Last several movies the number of gadgets have been next to nil and Bond has been much less sophisticated and regal and more gritty and rough around the edges.

    Bond would win.

    When did god become immune to roundhouses?

    As for the Bourne vs Bond, there shouldn't be any question. Bourne would kick the crap out of Bond, but Bond would win any time

    Why? it's bond for sure.
    Bond would have defeated bourne by the time he figures out who his enemy is(Bourne has amnesia like disease, remember?)

    So, could an omnipotent God create someone that could kick his ass? The answer is obviously yes.

    So, if God has already done it, then that someone is truly Chuck Norris.
    If God hasn't done it yet, then Chuck Norris is from the future.

    If one must create that which can defeat them then one is only defeating themself.

    This thing is called paradox or something.I can't remember the term.
    Here is something similar along those lines:
    What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?

    The unstoppable force is converted to heat, so it isnt stopped, and the unmoveable object becomes infinitly hot, so it isnt moved.

    Now imagine what it would be like if nothing existed, not even space or time.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Sean Connery vs Van Damme(in the bad acting category).

    EDIT: just kidding with the karate kid.

    Van Damme vs Jet Li/Jacky Chan

    >Van Damme vs Ralph Machio(karate kid)
    Van Damme

    >Segal vs Jack Baur(from 24)
    Segal

    >Chuck Norris vs Bruce Lee
    Norris

    >Sean Connery vs Van Damme(in the bad acting category).
    Considering that Connery actually acts well I'd have to go with Van Damme

    >Van Damme vs Jet Li/Jacky Chan
    Van Damme if there are no lose objects or bars for Chan to jump around on.

    I've never heard of a bond shell.

    Besides,
    chmod 007
    is pretty useless IMO.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
