    This is not Monty Python, but you might wonder! It's the India-Pakistan Border NIGHTLY Closing Ceremony.
    This is worth your time to watch. We know there is no love lost between the two countries. It's surprising they
    ever open the border. Both countries have nukes, and both countries have come close to war a number of times.
    >
    The Wagah border is the only road linking India and Pakistan. Every night, the border is closed with a most unusual ceremony
    and there's a grandstand to watch. Only 156 seconds long, it is one of the strangest ceremonies ever.

    The border guards remind me of the Haka chant done by the New Zealand rugby team before games. This is a fairly mild one ("I'm only going to tear your head off gently, mate....") but the explantion is good:

    I was working in Russia in the early 90s and was taken by my hosts to see the changing of the guard at Lenin's tomb, just a week or two before the guard was discontinued. It may have been an evil empire, but their guard marching was very, very impressive - sadly I can't find any video of it.

    Changing of the Guard at Lenin's Tomb.

    During the Day the guard is changed every hour and timed to the bells at a local cathedral.
