House Keeping: There was a question in the show that came up as we talked about The Usual Suspects the same phrase in question also shows up in the Schwarzenegger movie End of Days - Who said "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." The Answer is the French poet Baudelaire 1821 - 1867, except of course he didn't say it in English he said it in French. 

 

Also the Meme wasn't Schwarzenegger and Norris it was Norris and Stallone
