    Here at Break, we love to look at the lighter side of military life. The only thing better than a military fail would be a military prank. We also love military homecomings. There is something redemptive about them. When you spend so much time laughing at soldiers, it’s nice to almost--but not quite--shed a tear with them. The last category of military videos we love are combat videos, those videos that show us thrilling, extraordinary moments from the battlefield. We can enjoy those videos as entertainment because there are soldiers out there living that reality, soldiers like Brendan Marrocco.Brendan Marrocco lost all four limbs due to a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2009. Whatever you feel or felt about that war, we can all agree that having your limbs ripped from your torso is one of the largest sacrifices you can make for your country, and it’s certainly not one the military advertises in its commercials. Brendan Marrocco did just that, though, and he survived. He was the first person ever to survive such an enormous injury.

    Bears. Sharks. Two of natures scariest animals. Both frightening in their own ways. But which one makes you more of a man once you destroy its soul with your own two manly hands? Is it a bear, the killing machine of the forest? Or is it a shark, the oceans devil monster? This is an intense debate, one that has raged on for centuries. And today, we want to decide the answer once and for all. Itll be bloody, in a word-kind of way. Not in a real way. Were not actually going to fight or anything. Fighting is tough and we hate bleeding or getting bruises. As underwear models, we dont want to look bad, you know?

    We live in a world where our smartphones do our math for us. Carly McKinney knows this. By posting sexy pictures of herself on Twitter and Facebook, she was not only encouraging her students to pay attention better in class, she was moving them into the future by having them use their smartphones more. McKinney is a 10th-grade math teacher, or was, before the Aurora, Colorado Board of Education suspended her. Apparently, they dont like that she has a life outside of school. A life where she likes to smoke and be hot. What these public officials dont understand is that math is important. LEARNING is important. And what better way to learn about math than to have a hot teacher teaching it? Our math teacher was an old, gross lady. Do you know what 2 2 is? I dont know. But McKinney has already taught me that boobs butt = boner.
