After a veteran from war comes home they often find themselves staring blankly into the horizon. The reason for this is that they spend so much time staring off into the distance looking for a target that they only have one consistent passive state of mind. And that is to stare.

These people can often be awakened from this dumbfounded state of mind by making a loud popping noise which will transfer them into a shell shock reflexive behavior causing them to dart around underneath furniture.
John: What's wrong with Jamal?

Jason: He's doing the 1,000 yard stare.. watch this...

*Jason pops a balloon*

*Jamal bashes his face on a table trying to dive under it*
