How Tough Are You?

Think you are tough?

Here is a guy that chews up and spits out bullets:

A brave British soldier who was shot in the face by the Taliban spat out the bullet - then walked nearly two miles for treatment before being rushed home for an emergency operation.

Well, it didn't happen exactly the way I said. But he DID walk quite a distance, while bleeding. Most people would have needed a MedEvac to get to an aid station.

HT: I Hate The Media

I have people that can't walk into the ER with stomach pain.

Chuck's comment cracked me up, as usual. I wouldn't walk far with a migraine :-)

I am SO glad Luke's okay...and he's BACK FIGHTING!? WOW. That is the British "Stiff upper lip!" (or JAW!)

That's soooo funny. I have seen some wimps in my day too. You just want to reach right out and kick them and say snap out of it, Bozo. And then make them read about guys like this gutsy soldier.

I have never had a migraine, thankfully. But from what I have heard from those who have, they are not the least bit fun.

Jack Webb was the best man for that role, in that time period. What a classic. Thanks for sharing that link, sir.

I'm certainly NOT that tough. Gee Whiz!!!!

"Lance Corporal Reeson, we salute you, you tough son of a bitch."

I ditto the writer's sentiment and congratulate his parents on a job well done!
