Be all that you can be, by joining the army. Here they show one of the 6 week intensive training program on how to defuse a live shell.

And both guys holding the shell have their eyes closed too!

They should be wearing eye protection!

Maybe they should be wearing earplugs too?

What if it goes off?

They could have severe hearing and eye damage!

PUT THOSE MEN ON A CHARGE! Army regulations state that personnel holding the shell should be wearing gloves so that if the chisel slips off they won't hurt their hands.

Working to the strains of Coro di zingari (Italian Gypsy chorus) the soldiers work furiously to reduce the size of the shell so that it will fit in the war surplus German '88'

Honest to Jesus H. Christ, my moms Pontiac Montana minivan had an oil drain plug on the oil pan that was absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to remove for what should have been a simple drain and refill top up oil change, as I've done it dozens of times on my own vehicles. I swear that the last mechanic who worked on moms van previously had had to have used an impact wrench at probably 190 psi when he tightened up the oil drain plug. Its done now by another mechanic who mentioned that he had to use an air powered chisel to remove said oil drain plug. God damn the auto mechanics who over torque wheel nuts and everything else they touch. Rant!
