Its something I always wanted to be able to do. Now that I have found this, practice makes men, (and women and children and senior citizens ( even animals actually) ) perfect. 😀

By the way, that website is really weird, the kind of things you find there. Its the wikipedia model where you can go ahead write just about anything. Here is an example. Look at the method no. 5 and no. 6. Of course, they have a warning there too.

How training procedures have changed at West Point, the United States Military Academy :

The war in Iraq has hovered over the class of 2007, perhaps more than any class before. The 1,000-plus cadets who will graduate on Saturday were the first to enter West Point after the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. Most arrived on campus in June of that year.

Today, role-playing sessions regularly descend into chaos. “I never did this when I was here in ’85,” he said. “We did road marches. We prepared the defense for defense operations. We were confident the enemy wouldn’t hit us for 24 hours. That was our scenario.”

Today’s West Point cadets are taught how to react to surprise uprisings, often while accompanied by someone acting as an embedded television reporter. “We have a road march, and a crowd of people come in the middle of the road,” Colonel Jones said. “There’s a vehicle on the side. There’s a camera, there’s a kid with a bat, there’s a pregnant woman.”
