A Chinese military exercise is basically playing Hot Potato with a LIVE grenade!


Check out this crazy video taken from a training exercise for the People's Liberation Army of China. Apparently the soldiers are supposed to take a live grenade with both their hands and pass it around. The last one throws it inside the hole in the middle as they jump away to not be harmed!

I'm sure all military training is dangerous, but it's amazing to see something so dangerous in action. What other types of intense military training have you heard of?

UPDATE: There's seems to be debate over whether or not this is fake. The Atlantic, a prestigious magazine, has done some investigating on their own and so far they've concluded that it's real. Check out their coverage on this here
