When not in combat, the average soldier is put under immense pressure to cope with boredom. This of course results in an endless stream of hijinks, shenanigans, and all around ridiculousness.

    One of our old favorites, was to stick a sleeping guys hand in a pot of warm water, while he slept. It always brought up the response for him to pass water in his sleep, so he would wake up and find himself sleeping in a wet bed of urine.

    I'm all for troops coping with boredom. But in some of these pranks some troops could have been seriously injured. Best to get the troops out and run the obstacle course a couple of times if necessary to burn up pent up energy/frustration/boredom. Always worked in boot camp.

    #3 was not the US Military... Those guys were Russian... it does prove that pranks are universal!

    One of our favorites in Vietnam was to tape the wires from a field phone to a sleeping guys chest. Then one of us would scream "Scorpion!" over and over while he guy holding the phone would crank it for all he was worth. The victim, of course, would assume he'd just been stung and would freak out. Meanwhile, the rest of us made sure to get the hell out of his way when he figured it out.

    This is really great "Stuff". I spent 3 years in Vietnam, and some of the things we would do, are from another world. If you ever have the time, look up a book called "Drafted and Served", by Steaven Banks. I just found out that my life as a door gunner on a "LOH-23" was written, and is in black & white. I never knew the book was real; how about that one???
