We got an inside look at what it's like on the first day for new cadets at the United States Military Academy at West Point.

I used to think these videos were cool, but after 4 years in and a tour in the Middle East I start to notice just how silly the whole cadet/basic training mindset is. The only reason I wouldn’t be able to make it in west point today is id have migraines from rolling my eyes too far back at all the dumb shit being said and done around me.

I love watching individual people systematically brainwashed into being a mindless drone that willingly die in group formation. :)

Sorry. I am a veteran. Had to say that.

God bless the unemployment rate and the high cost of education. It keeps the meat fresh and eager to meet the mincer.
