Tear gas sucks. It's not horribly bad, it's just like, a really annoying thing you have to deal with. It's on about the same annoyance level of a bee sting if you ask us. Yeah, it kinda sucks and kinda hurts, but in the grand scheme of things, it's not really that big of a deal (unless you're a bitch). It's part of the training and you make do and make it through.Whining about it, or freaking out about it only encourages the sadistic side of those in charge to prolong the minor inconvenience that is the gas chamber. The more you bitch, the less likely you are to "satisfy the requirements" of the training evolution. However, no matter how many times we tell people that, some people just can't help but panic and freak out. Hopefully we never get gassed for real. Here are a few of the different reactions to the tear gas chamber training.The Total SpazEveryone loves this guy. Why? Because that lost one will inevitably spaz out and try to run or f*** up his gas mask procedure or something. They're going to be the source of hours of laughter and entertainment. It's not fun to be that guy. Your life is a miserable state of consistently keeping up your credentials as a clusterfluck (see what we did there, it's technically not the F-word). Thank you.The "Badass"Nobody is impressed that you take off your gas mask, open your eyes and take a deep breath. Your constant need to impress everyone will probably lead you to do the same thing, only in an actual chemical environment. You're going to inhale a lot of Sarin gas and then die because of your ego. Congratulations dumbass![caption id="attachment_18494" align="alignnone" width="750"]

Tear Gas Chamber

Basic Combat Training Soldiers assigned to E company 3rd battalion 10th infantry Regiment wait to enter the gas chamber on July 8, 2013 on Fort Leonard Wood MO. The Soldiers are exposed to CS gas to build confidence in their M50 series gas mask. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Ronald Shaw Jr.)(RELEASED)[/caption]The Speed DemonYou remove your mask, then don and clear it at a speed that some would say doesn't meet the requirements for the training. This guy is so fast, people wonder if he actually removed his mask. Fear can make you do amazing things, in a chemical environment, this guy will be the only one alive. In training though, he's a canoe made for and by douches.The Normal GuyIt's training and he takes it seriously, but he knows it's just a check in the box and he just wants to get in and get out and go back to sleeping in his barracks room. Move along nothing to see here.The Dick NCOThe guy running the show is on a power trip. Instead of doing the training as intended, he's out to swing his wangdang doodle around and show off how cool he thinks he is. Will try to have a conversation with you and make the time in the chamber go by as slowly as possible. Dude we get it, you were super cool in HS and that's as good as life is ever going to be for you.
