Enlisting in the United States Marines Corps is not an afternoon of miniature golf and dinner at Cracker Barrel. Enlisting in the USMC is heavy. When one walks into the recruiting office, you already know that this is going to be drastically life changing, and you are about to enter a completely new world. In this new world, you will require skills and information to assimilate and be useful; things like strangling terrorists with their own detonation cord, or sky diving onto a Somali pirate ship with a knife between your teeth might come to mind.

The 5 Best Plane Crashes In Cinema

There are few things in life as scary as the prospect of being in a plane crash. Not even so much the crash itself, as the idea of sitting there, knowing it is about to happen.

The sounds of the people around you, whispering prayers to themselves in the off chance that the giant hand of some God will reach through the clouds and pluck them out of the plane right before it hits.
