Well. It seems this "acclimatize the troops to Iraq" heat wave is sweeping the globe and I think it's a very proper time to mention the silver bullet is very much real and that sick, sadistic medic in your unit has been dying to test it out.

For those of you who aren't up to speed, it's a shiny thumb-sized thermometer that is brought out specifically for heat casualties and is, well, inserted rectally. Why they do this is beyond me. I would assume the standard under-the-tongue thermometers would work just fine, but I'm not a medic. Although, I guess that one doesn't terrify the troops into drinking plenty of water for the ruck march.

So go ahead, high speed. Try drinking all night and wake up to a Monster energy drink for this run. See what happens. I guarantee you that you won't make this same mistake twice.

To the rest of you smart enough to know how to properly identify pee charts and drink water accordingly, here's some memes.
