Another Russian Army Hazing video
Well, what can I say about the hazing in the army in my country. I guess some "initiation" traditions are present in any army, navy, certain sports or even sometimes schools. Some of such practices possibly carry some symbolic value and signify passing into adulthood or becoming a part of a certain group. Some of these rituals, however, seem just out-right senseless and doubtfully carry anything but the senseless violence and a source of some sadistic form of entertainment for the utterly bored men who happen to be in a senior position to the ones being "intiated." I'd be curious to hear what other people think about this.
