As soon as I read that bin Laden took two shots to the face, I thought of this:

This was so out of the blue that it really did make me laugh.
This thread has some serious homoerotic potential.
Seriously though, the guys on these SEAL teams are more like Bourne and less like Vin Diesel-esque meatheads.
I'm picturing Sylvester Stallone all sweaty and oiled up in a war torn, shredded vest myself
It's not enough to bash in heads, you have to bash in minds.
Come on guys... live a little. See awesome movies more than 5 years old and not on any AFI list:

Can we merge this with the "caught masturbating" thread?

An instructor put it another way: "They're all studs," he said of the 18-to-28-year-old men who report for training. But often it's the super-studs who are the first to drop out.
And that leads to the second surprise. You think SEALs look like Rambo? They don't -- think more along the lines of Daniel Craig's James Bond. The average size of a SEAL is probably 5ft.-10, 175 pounds.
The Navy commissioned Gallup to look at almost 8,000 attempts to get through the key SEAL training, known as BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL). It turned up very interesting findings about who's most likely to succeed. The sweet spot? Twenty-two to 25-year-olds, college educated, and NOT from glamour sports (football, basketball and baseball players don't do any better than non-athletes).
Who does? Water polo players are number one. Triathletes, lacrosse players, boxers, rugby players, swimmers and wrestlers, in that order, also fit the bill. Endurance sports are great predictors of success: mountain biking, climbing and rappelling, skiing and snowboarding. The study has helped the Navy re-make recruiting.
By Chris Jansing, NBC News Correspondent CORONADO, Calif. -- The world looks very different from forty feet up, hanging onto a rope wall. My advice? Don't look down. A lot of phenomenally fit people, including world-famous athletes and Olympians, have frozen at the top of the wall, which is part of the legendary obstacle course on the Navy SEAL base here in Coronado. Who knew that vertigo routinely kicks in at forty feet without a safety net? SEALs have a reputation as the fittest and most fearless of the military's special forces. Their legend grew even more after SEAL sharpshooters -- firing from a heaving ship at dusk -- killed three Somali pirates and freed Captain Richard Phillips after his
one of these two.
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Funny you should ask: http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/who-shot-bin-laden-former-seals-fill-in-the-blanks/2011/05/02/AFgybxcF_story.html?hpid=z4
He’s likely between the ages of 26 and 33, says Marcinko, founder of the elite “SEALs Team 6” — now known as
DEVGRU — that many believe led the assault on bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. He’ll be old enough to have had time to hurdle the extra training tests required to join the elite counter-terrorism unit, yet young enough to withstand the body-punishing rigors of the job. The shooter’s a man, it’s safe to say, because there are no women in the SEALs. And there’s a good chance he’s white, though the SEALs have stepped up efforts to increase the number of minorities in their ranks, Marcinko and Smith say. A “positive thinker” who “gets in trouble when he’s not challenged,” Marcinko suspects, a man who “flunked vacation and flunked relaxing.”
He was probably a high school or college athlete, Smith says, a physical specimen who combines strength, speed and agility. “They call themselves ‘tactical athletes,’ ” says Smith, who works with many prospective SEALs in his Heroes of Tomorrow training program in Severna Park. “It’s getting very scientific.”
Marcinko puts it in more conventional terms: “He’ll be ripped,” says the author of the best-selling autobiography “ Rogue Warrior .” “He’s got a lot of upper-body strength. Long arms. Thin waist. Flat tummy.”

If you can find it(or online for free somewhere) this is a great series that shows the first part of the training SEAL recruits go through. Insane stuff.
The 83 men of Class 234 selected for Basic Underwater Demolition (SEAL-BUDS) training have the toughest six months of their lives in sight. While they've been selected from over 1,500 applicants, only 32 of them will actually become U.S. Navy SEALs. Go behind a structured world of sacrifice designed to force BUDS students to the limits of their physical and emotional endurance. Learn advanced SEAL training tactics and get to know the men of Class 234 as you follow them to their extreme physical and emotional limits. Welcome to Buds Meet the 83 men of Class 234 who have been accepted into BUDS, the training program that forms the Navy SEALs, one of the most elite fighting forces in the world. Watch as they tackle Phase One, a physically grueling course designed to weed out all but the toughest and most dedicated. This is only day one of 26 weeks of unimaginable physical and emotional strain. Most will quit within the first weeks. It Pays to Be a Winner Phase One continues...the men are determined to survive the physically and mentally rigorous program and remain injury free. New students, injured in previous classes, are added to Class 234. With Hellweek looming, they learn basic lessons of survival, hoping to be one of the few to become a Navy SEAL. By the end of week one, half the class is gone. Two Weeks and a Long Day By the second week of BUDS training, many of the students have already dropped out. The remaining men still have 24 weeks of hardship. Students who are failing physically are put before the review boards where instructors will decide if they are dropped for lack of performance or rolled to the next class for medical leave. Each week they must improve, they must run faster and swim farther. Individuals do not survive, teammates do. Hellweek, the harshest part of training, is still on the horizon. Hellweek For 24 hours a day, six days in a row, students are put through a demanding set of obstacles designed to test their commitment to becoming SEALs. Cold, wet, hungry and sleep-deprived, the men struggle to prove their resolve as each test is followed by a more difficult one, pushing the psychological limits of even the toughest competitors. Hellweek is the ultimate eliminator discover which of these courageous souls graduate and become a U.S. Navy SEAL!
