  1. After Battlestations in boot camp, we had been awake for more than 36 hours. My RDC played this on repeat with the hopes of driving us crazy. We got mad when he turned it off lol

  2. Am I the only one who finds the cadence to be strangely relaxing? It may be my ADHD driven brain craving any type of noise to get my mind off of the billions of other stuff flashing through it.

  3. "Boots" – Rudyard Kipling

    We're foot, slog, slog, slog, sloggin' over Africa
    Foot, foot, foot, foot, sloggin' over Africa
    Boots, boots, boots, boots, movin' up and down again
    There's no discharge in the war!

    Seven, six, eleven, five, nine, an' twenty mile today
    Four, eleven, seventeen, thirty two the day before
    Boots, boots, boots, boots, movin' up and down again
    There's no discharge in the war!

    Don't, don't, don't, don't, look at what's in front of you
    Boots, boots, boots, boots, movin' up an' down again
    Men, men, men, men, men go mad with watchin' em
    An' there's no discharge in the war!

    Count, count, count, count, the bullets in the bandoliers
    If, your, eyes, drop, they will get atop o' you!
    Boots, boots, boots, boots, movin' up and down again
    There's no discharge in the war!

    We, can, stick, out, 'unger, thirst, an' weariness
    But, not, not, not, not the chronic sight of 'em
    Boot, boots, boots, boots, movin' up an' down again
    An' there's no discharge in the war!

    'Taint, so, bad, by, day because o' company
    But night, brings, long, strings o' forty thousand million
    Boots, boots, boots, boots, movin' up an' down again
    There's no discharge in the war!

    I, 'ave, marched, six, weeks in 'ell an' certify
    It, is, not, fire, devils, dark, or anything but
    Boots, boots, boots, boots, movin' up an' down again
    An' there's no discharge in the war!

    Try, try, try, try, to think o' something different
    Oh, my, God, keep me from goin' lunatic!
    Boots, boots, boots, boots, movin' up an' down again!
    There's no discharge in the war!

  4. I first heard this one night during MCT. We were sleeping outside at the range, middle of the night we get woken up by this playing out of the speakers of a white van driving in a circle around us. After a couple minuets the van stops, the combat instructor gets out and walks into the woods and just leaves the van playing on loop for 10 minuets and us wondering what the fuck we were listening too. it was mega creepy
