If you're wondering why I compiled this list of people suffering under immense G-forces, it's because I had nothing better to do and I get paid to find ridiculous things (be jealous).

You probably have a working familiarity with those gigantic centrifuges deployed by military air divisions around the world in order to subject pilots to enhanced gravitational acceleration, e.g. "high-G training:"

These tests are done to ensure that pilots don't pass out and/or die when subject to the extreme G-forces of flight, including space flight.

What you may not be aware of is just how absolutely gnarly these kinds of tests make the human face look. I mean it's really quite shocking.

Here's an enlightening minute-long video out of Brooks City-Base in Texas:

I mean, the guy goes from healthy 18-year-old athlete to 68-year-old meth addict in like two seconds:

God bless our fighting forces for putting up with this bone-crushing insanity!
