Love broadcasting your fitness routine to everyone and their mother? Bad news, you vain bastard: The Department of Defense is cracking down on service members' use of geolocation services out of concern for operational security, which means you can no longer digitally flex for your fellow warfighters and their spouses while downrange.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
