Tim Lewis : The hash browns thing is fake. This was a clever edit. You can see the first shot is the guy asking a question with the camera man in the front. Then the next shot is the dude answering, with cameraman behind/side. #1: You'd see the camera man in front of the guys on the second shot if this was real. #2: The guy most likely asked the dude a few questions, one of them being "What did you have for breakfast this morning?" so the dude probably answered correctly saying "Hash browns." But the editor saw a clever place to edit two questions together and made what you see there. Nothing is real anymore.

I'm a cat? Stop lying. : The guy in the thumbnail looks like CGI

generalzod4life : As long as the instructors use the candidates preferred pronouns because that's the most important thing!

Tyler Jackson : And then they get shot by a dude that's never worked out in his life

MemeMasterJackal _ : I'm in the Army right now. You have to keep in mind these guys are already soldiers too. Some have been in for years and all have already gone through basic and airborne school just to get there.

GBG Balistic Warri0r : The commentary of this video is hilarious. When I went thru SFAS in 2010 we had a guy come back from a land navigation exercise with practically no pants on. He claimed that thorn bushes shredded his pants when he was trying to cross a river. Another guy lost his rubber ducky (fake m4 rifle). He knew that he was pretty much screwed so he didn't look for any more points but instead spent 4 hours making a bow and arrows out of sticks and rocks. He then spent 2 hours practicing with it because he thought that it better work if he is going to claim it as his weapon. When he got back the cadre laughed at him and told him that if he could hit a tree with his arrow from like 20 ft away they wouldn't drop him. Sure enough he was able to hit the tree and they let him continue to train. Lot of great stories from SFAS and even more from the year and a half long training pipeline after.

Gendo3s2k : We're supposed to believe that women can do this...

kungfuman82 : Huh. So these are the guys that Arnold Schwarzenegger eats for breakfast. Hope he checks for puke pockets first.

J : Bill Burr, admitting he's light years away from being able to do this: feminists, a 120lb woman can do this in high heels and you're a racist homophobic sexist to claim otherwise.

Santino - : I'm a former Marine. Drill instructors used to say if you can't handle the stress in a safe environment, how will you react when the bullets are flying? There's method to the madness.

Apemopo : i bet hash browns was that guy's safeword and that's just what his mind defaulted to lol

Mike Litoris : I've heard of this one guy that stuff like this is there for one reason and one reason only: they try to break every single one of these guys and they'll only take the ones that just won't quit. Because when the shit hits the fan and you need to depend on the guy next to you to have your back, you want someone who can endure something like that and still keep on moving. I bet this is some of the worst stuff they're legally allowed to do to young men in training simply because they're trying to get as close as possible to the worst combat conditions. If you can't handle rolling over the ground of lifting a log even when it hurts, what are you going to do when you get shot? Just quit? Kudos to anyone who is willing to endure this type of torture.

J Hoff : Bill Burr, this is fantastic, I love your commentary! I attended SFAS in May 1992- roster #144. There are too many stories to relate here but it was indeed an insane time. People would ask me for advice before going and literally the only advice guaranteed to allow you to finish is Don't Quit, Don't Get Hurt. I will tell one story though. At the very end. We cleaned out the huts at Camp MacKall and packed our ratty, broken down, and well used gear and were loaded onto trucks to return to the COSCOM area back on Ft Bragg. No one knew anything or what would happen next. Once there, it seemed like a long time of milling around while the cadre were organizing whatever it was that was coming next. We understood that at anytime we could get hit with another event or task or test so no one was relaxed. Finally, we were called into a formation and they began calling out roster numbers. "If your number was called, fall out of the formation and get in line over "there"". And the numbers started getting called in random order so you couldn't relax even if the numbers called were higher than yours. No one knew if getting called was good or bad and as the amount of numbers called continued to grow it started to sink in that perhaps you wanted your number called. When it was all over, we had about 2/3rds in formation and 1/3 separated. We were called to attention and faced left and marched away from the formation area and around the corner. We stopped in front of another building on another street. The cadre left and we were left alone looking at one another like wtf!? Finally someone came out and started giving us some new directions, when someone in the formation yelled out- "Come on! Did we make it or not?" Then the cracked a wry smile, looked up from his clipboard at us and said- "yeah, you made it." Oh, What a feeling that was!

Mumba Mumba : I could do this. Especially the puking, the hash browns and the giving up part.

John Doh : If you ever meet a Green Beret you are looking at a guy that can do things that, physically and mentally, 99.9% of the country just cannot do. I mean just the physical aspect of their training is beyond belief. But then you have to add in the fact that they can't be idiots either. They all have to learn another language, learn their new job (medic, engineer, weapon master, commo) and be tactically and technically proficient in all aspects of military tactics and strategies to go out and get dropped off in the middle of hell and teach a bunch of inexperienced natives how to become an effective guerilla force.

Dildo Shwaggins : Am I the only one that thought the thumbnail looked more like graphics from a PS4 or Xbox one than real life?

Chris Weidner : Ranger school, swamp phase. A guy was standing next to a tree feeding imaginary coins into it as if it was a vending machine.

Grizzly : Imagine the feeling if you completed this! You would feel invincible!

Tanker XL : My cousin was a green beret.. he mostly smokes pot now. lol

Ryan Schur : Pretty disgusted by all the degenerates in the comments talking shit about service members. You don't agree with the wars the US gets involved in? Fine, but don't take it out on the men and women who were just doing what they had to. I thought we were done with this shit after Vietnam.

Eric Powell : Bill Burr should narrate every documentary

Flappy McDank : SO many blithering idiots in the comments section lmao

Rubén Pérez Reguera : I don't see any feminists fighting for equality on this.

Ellipsis of Triple Tap : The comment section, once again, is full of people that have never served a day in their life... never tested themselves. I graduated from Fort Benning - Infantry School as it use to be, and I was 'high speed' - these guys, even the dropouts, are on another level. I served in Afghanistan as a gunner and I'm no pussy; but I'm also not delusional: I'm hard as woodpecker lips, these guys are like granite-lips. It's something you can never explain to people that never VOLUNTEERED to suffer - and succeed.

Thomas Lucas : If you make it through 2 weeks of hell then you get selected to go into training. This is only a job application. You can do everything right and not be selected. The ruck sack is 85 pounds. When you do the land navigation you are creeping through forests and peoples farms. you risk being shot but part of the process is stealth. There are snakes and dogs and poisonous bugs. Besides all of the stuff they show what isnt showed is all your daily duties like marching and eating and ceremonies and cleaning and inspections still occur on top of this so as soon as you get out of the mud you only have a short time to clean up eat and have a new clean uniform ready to be inspected in. It's all those little mind games that fuck with you. Not the mud or pain or log. Your body begins to realease dope and make you high as fuck once you pass a certain point. It's when you think you have finished an unimaginably difficult physical task and have absolutly nothing left that you get another task like pulling a hummer at a full run for 10miles. The whole process is designed to break your mind because its almost impossible to break your body. I know that sounds crazy but its all in your head.

Lord Falcon : I'm a Sergeant in the regular army.  These guys are ridiculous.  One of my buddies broke his leg at selection, got a second chance, made it through, and then got peered out at the end. Even if you complete all that shit, if they don't adequately like you, you still don't get in.

John Crafton : You never know what you're capable of doing until you're pushed to do it. These guys already finished boot camp and some form of advanced infantry training. It's not like they went from the streets to this. One thing I found from being in the military is that I had no idea what my limits were. Seriously. You think you're at your limit, you're pushed further, and then you find yourself well past your preconceived notions.

R Singh : just to show you how much mental strength is alot more important than physical.

Electronic91 : Eating a mushroom risotto while watching this wasn't the brightest of ideas...

Dave Kane : It's not on Netflix. Looks like I'll have to pirate it. Thanks Bill.

Peedinkus : The physical stuff you can push through, but the land nav and stuff where you have to use your mind are what will get you kicked out if you are not on point. Btw, this is just the selection course. The rest of the Q Course is very looooooong (especially for 18D - SFMedic)

WanderAbroad : My dad said he saw piles of guys wash out because of "The Star". To this day my dads navigation is insane. My dad made it but I couldn't do it in 1,000 years. By the way there is so little known about the Green Berets but on top of that even fewer know the Green Beret's have their own divers. You had to BE a Green Beret to even apply to be one of their divers and even though my dad was a Green Beret he said he had no chance of passing the diver tests. It took the difficulty of the Green Berets and made it even harder. I could go into what their divers could do but honestly you'd think it was so ridiculously impossible that you'd believe I was lying through my teeth. There is the old song "One hundred will try today, only 3 will make the Green Beret".

GauntLife : Ya, that's 2 weeks of hell. But there's an exit if need be. Hell is illustrated better in a documentary called "Under the Sun". A candid glimpse into the lives of communist ruled North Koreans during a Government funded propaganda campaign in which the director of the film captured unfiltered, natural day-to-day insanity in-between shoots when the camera was said to be off. It may be a hard watch for those who don't like subtitles and slow paced docudrama, but if you are interested in seeing the stunning contrast of how other people in our world are living compared to ourselves, it's worth a watch. It may also make you question why America and it's allies have opted to abandon it's once rampant opposition to communism and focus it's efforts on invading Middle Eastern countries, which pose no real threat to anyone, and disrupting their everyday lives in a more profound way than any terrorist cell ever did. Or, it might just make you say 'better them than me".

unoitisim : RIP Ermy

Sebrina Dodson : I LOVE how these are editedtogether with what he's actually talking about

Snow : After training for BUD/S. I will never say anything is impossible. I used to have trouble going up a flight a stairs. Now if I don't run 40 miles a week, at least (with an occasional marathon run every few weeks)... I don't feel comfortable. I mean hell, while running I don't feel comfortable, it kicks my ass every time, but I keep on suffering through. Once your body TRULY suffers, once you're truly pushing past your limits. That's the moment you realize your potential is infinite. You are your own worst enemy, conquer yourself and you'll conquer the world. If you have EVER wanted to join any Special Operations units. Or even if you just want to run in a marathon, whatever your goals and ambitions are. Stop wasting time and do it NOW. STOP making excuses for EVERYTHING. If nobody believes you. I will.

manny bravo : I've worked with green berets and they all say the same thing it's all mental. I did a 2 week special training with 3rd group and I talked to them about it. They said they had guys who were old but made it because they know how to deal with stress. The younger guys being stronger faster didn't make it most times because their level in stress management wasn't good enough. They want to see when you're exhausted have nothing left which guy will complete the mission. Even enduring extreme amounts of pain and discomfort

Robert cekay : and people say millennials are soft, go tell that to these guys

D McKenzie : God I have 4 years worth of stories from shit like this Since I first enlisted. Started off with a Ranger contract, got into the 2nd Batt in April 2014, then I went to selection for 18X SF 3 times. Sadly Never made it to the Green Berets, but I loved every second that I was in.

Jacob Dickey : Heading to selection in April. It's going to suck, but I can't wait to test my mettle and step up to the challenge. All of these people are volunteers and put themselves through this to hopefully join one of the most(if not the most) respected communities in the military and serve their country to the fullest extent. Some people, as in the comment section, will never understand why anyone would put themselves through this level of training, but it's for a good reason and I respect anyone who at least tries and so do the cadre.

Tony, The Stark : And then soldiers go crazy. What a surprise!

KHNUM : This is hard, but in my country, Portugal, it's normal for recrutes to die. Like they die from sun exposure, lack of water, and sometimes people to die from beatings.

R0gue0ne : I hope the public gets it what it means to be ELITE. You are in a herd. One of a thousand herds. Every now and then a wolf is made. This is selection. But the good news is...this wolf is ON YOUR TEAM. Pat him on the back. He'll die for your rights and freedoms. He won't even think twice. Every face in this video wants to serve. Say thank you.

Eno On : I'll watch the show when there's bill's commentary available in the audio options on every single episode.

Graham Van Dyke : Someone's gotta get Bill to watch Navy Seal BUDS training. It is pure insanity. Guys literally drown in the water and the instructors revive them like it's no big deal.

hisoj : now let's even imagine having women attempt any of this, and have a good long laugh.

Nathan Hackey : Ranger School. They loved using log PT to weed out the weak. Our group of 8 dropped ours and broke the foot of the soldier up front. He still didn't want to quit...the medic made him leave.

Black dragon story : I know this looks bad and tough and honestly I dont have any experience with it however I do think it's all just perspective. If you are running away from the enemy fire trough a uneven forest at night and tumble down you might vomit especially if it was unexpected encounter. The enemy will send people after you and leaving your vomit on the ground could be the thing that leads them to you. Similarly if you are in an enemy territory who will for the most part use roads it would be bad for you to just walk over the road without thinking and you are basically being trained for a situation where the enemy has people nearly everywhere. The obstacle course is basically training your body in every possible way for situations where you have to make the right action fast in order to run,hide,take a cover etc. If you climbed a rope 10 times in your life when you are in a hurry it will be quite difficult to do it the fastest you can do it when practicing. Basically once you change the way you look at this training your brain will accept the training as logical way of dealing with shown situations and the amount of practicing simply reduces the amount of thinking you need to perform the actions.

Sloth55Chunk : I eat Green Berets for breakfast

Floyd Dominique : where's the feminism that say female can do all the male can do?
