#1 Usually occurs when they lock their knees. You need to keep them loose, bendable, not locked. It's tiring but precluded this type of ending.

#2 And wiggle your toes, too. Keeps the blood circulating.

#4 Looks embarrassing. ;-)

I'll bet next time everyone remembers to not lock their knees. Some of them overheated, though. Good way to end up with a concussion.

#5 ...Reminds me of when I was at USAF Basic Training in 1978, and the new school commander - a former POW - formed every last trainee up to address the growing problem of people passing out on parade. He put it quite simply: anyone doing so without a damned good medical reason would be recycled back to Day One, even if it was your graduation parade. He laid it out very clearly in words I've never forgotten: he had been a POW in North Vietnam for four years and was tortured repeatedly without ever giving them the satisfaction of passing out. If he could do it under those circumstances, we could too.

After the first couple folks found themselves at Day One, it stopped.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
