Soldier Almost Commits War Crime By Performing His Stand-Up to Captive Audience

Anyone who's been to a horrible stand-up show can attest that it's something like cruel and unusual punishment. Granted his audience wasn't in a situation that would be too conducive for laughter, this guy got one of the worst reviews an amateur comic can receive. For an amazing navy story, here's a lazy naval officer who displayed an act of pure genius.

The Very Fast Story of The First Soldier To Take Way Too Many Military Grade Amphetamines

Correction and clarification here, he didn't go on a killing rampage or really terrorize the soviets, but our boy did do the rest of that shit. According to Wikipedia, Aimo Koivunen found it too difficult to undo one tablet with his gloves, so he just took them all. Bad idea. The resulting few weeks are inadvisable for any human being to put themselves through. And while none of this is advisable or good, it is really damn interesting. Tumblr has a way of making history fun.

The inferiority complex is strong with this one. Watch him panic when asked about his military ID number. When are people ever going to learn to quit their BS? Not today apparently.
