A former Sergeant in the Marine Corps took a new job as a high school teacher. Just before the school year started he injured his back. He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn't noticeable. On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. The smart aleck punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and he knew they would be testing his discipline in the classroom.

Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and stapled the tie to his chest.

Dead silence.
He had no trouble with discipline the rest of the year.

That would probably do it.
I remember getting uniform ribbons that required clips on the back of the pins. But rather than using those clips when we earned one, it was simply put in place and a good palm butt stuck it in our chest, drawing blood while we stood there and said "thankyou sir".

That was some time ago. I believe that would be torture today.
