    Definitely

    That's the way they train all soldiers. They break them down, and teach them to defy the pain. No wonder some soldiers who come back go insane. Geez...

    He probably didn't really feel the pain until after the doctors took care of him. He only knew he was messed up and had to seek help. That's how it was for me when a car battery blew up in my face in 1991 and tore through one of my eyes, broke my nose and put a half-inch deep hole in the fleshy area under my eyebrow. I felt almost no pain at all until after the doctors started treating me, then the pain started. After the doctors, there was tremendous amounts of pain....for many days after. I bet about the same thing happened to that guy.

    That... sounds horrific... Ouch....
    I hope he wasn't in pain for too many days, being in agony isn't very pleasant.

    I remember seeing this on the news. Like Rayder said he probably didn't feel anything, it's a state of shock. The body gets the adrenaline pumping which for some strange reason stops the pain receptors from working properly. Though my example isn't nearly as good as Rayder, but a glass smashed on my head and made a massive gash on my forehead, I didn't feel anything until after they put the stitches in.

    One of the chains broke and then all the hooks I was suspended with tore out of my back and I fell 10 feet to the ground.
