Sound off!!!! What was your scariest moment when someone thought shit like this was funny? Mine was first time loading magnesium flares in an aircraft system. 30 of those bad boys were just about to make contact with the firing mechanism when my instructor of all people did this to me. Damn near had a heart attack right then and there. #badjoke #surprise #dontdoit

    Now I work in the munitions industry. We were doing some testing in a blast chamber. someone dropped a lid from a 55 gal drum while i was prepping the charge. Total accident but my heart literally stopped for a beat or two.

    Yeah on a normal demo range we scared a young pvt that was setting a charge, built about a 10lbs castle out of c4 fucking around with the last det of the day, pvt had his finger in the ring of the igniter yelled boom in his ears he pulled it, we had just enough time on the fuse to run like hell get enough distance to where it didn't knock us out, ringing hasn't stopped since lol

    A soldier let go of me as I was setting up an antenna atop 90 ft compound, because I was legitimately losing my balance and he thought I was "joking"

    We're in South America, thick jungle. Smartass throws a rubber snake in my lap. I almost crapped myself, and tossed my uneaten lunch onto the muddy ground.

    @nmphotoguy what a dick. I know he’s just joking but something tells me food wasn’t exactly readily available. Than one in every crowd!!!

    Standing on the top of a ladder at the range when a smartass quietly pulled the pin on a stingball grenade fuse. #whoflungpoo
