Incredible soldier achievements
Those interested in insane human achievement may be interested in Cracked.com's list of
"5 Real Life Soldiers Who Make Rambo Look Like a Pussy," the first being the incredible story of Simo Hayha, a Finnish sniper who killed hundreds of Soviet troops with an archaic rifle in sub-zero weather.
As usual, Cracked reiterates the stories in such an entertaining manner that I'll forgive them for distorting a few facts. It's a feature full of cliff-climbing, bunker-busting and people awarded impossible medals for doing impossible things.
