A Green Beret Demonstrates How To Remove Your Own Stitches
Sometimes being a man means getting punched or kicked in the face. If you find this keeps happening, you can either reevaluate your life choices, or learn how to cut your recovery time short like a boss.
If you opt for the latter, check out this video by Man Hacks in which Mixed Martial Arts fighter Josh Tyler has his stitches removed by a former Green Beret after getting kicked in the face.
Run by combat veterans Logan Stark, a former Marine Corps scout sniper, and Jeff Kirkham, who served 28 years in the Army Green Berets, Man Hacks is devoted to “reviving the art of man skills.”
Every week, Man Hacks releases a different video demonstrating how to do something manly, like escape from handcuffs or duct tape if you keep finding yourself getting tied down for some reason. Check out their Facebook page here.
So, if a doctor’s office is too much of a hassle, here you go.
Iran's top diplomat threatened an "all-out war" Thursday with the U.S. or Saudi Arabia if either country launches a retaliatory strike over a drone and missile attack on oil reserves that sent energy prices soaring.

JALALABAD, Afghanistan (Reuters) - A U.S. drone strike intended to hit an Islamic State (IS) hideout in Afghanistan killed at least 30 civilians resting after a day's labor in the fields, officials said on Thursday.
The attack on Wednesday night also injured 40 people after accidentally targeting farmers and laborers who had just finished collecting pine nuts at mountainous Wazir Tangi in eastern Nangarhar province, three Afghan officials told Reuters.
"The workers had lit a bonfire and were sitting together when a drone targeted them," tribal elder Malik Rahat Gul told Reuters by telephone from Wazir Tangi.
Built to win World War III, the F-35 is mostly being used to bomb caves and other stationary targets
The F-35 is built to win wars against China and Russia, but since the United States is not fighting either country at the moment, it's mostly being used to bomb caves and weapons caches — a mission that older and cheaper aircraft can do just as well.
The Marine Corps' F-35B variant flew its first combat mission in September 2018 by dropping two bombs on a weapons cache in Afghanistan. The Air Force's F-35A's combat debut came in April, when two aircraft attacked an ISIS cave and tunnel complex in northeast Iraq.
More recently, F-35s joined F-15s in dropping 80,000 pounds of ordnance on Iraq's Qanus Island, which was "infested" with ISIS fighters, Army Col. Myles Caggins, spokesman for U.S. and coalition forces fighting ISIS, tweeted Sept. 10.
