The Last Archimedean

I must admit I'm shocked this worked. But sometimes if you expect the best of people, they'll show it just to live up to the expectations you've set.

When I was in the military, I was told that the way the Russians made elite troops [Spetznaz] was by having a special selector pick out the troops that he thought were promising and tell them they were now Spetznaz and they had a reputation to live up to. They would then move heaven and earth to prove they were worthy of being Spetznaz. Don't know if it's true, but it sounds plausible.

Amazingly enough this apparently worked...
