A nearly $500,000 Gallup study commissioned by the Navy found out that a recruit is much more likely to survive the ass-kicking training to become a Navy SEAL if he is a mountain biker (along with some other alternative sports like rock climbing and water polo). If he plays chess too his chances of passing triple! The SEAL training historically has a 67% drop out rate!
