Field Reports

lion-chasing-gazelle

For the past three years of The Rational Male there’s been a consistent presence in the comment threads of guys seeking advice for particular situations with regards to Game. Whether it’s fine tuning certain aspects of Game or a larger consensus of the guys participating in my comment threads it’s become obvious there’s a need for a dedicated page and comment thread to address these Field Reports.

So I’m instituting this page for exactly this. If there is some urgency to have members of The Rational Male community analyze your particular situation feel free to hit anyone up in the comments of my current post, but please refer them to your particular field report with a link to your comment here. I’m hoping this will alleviate the mass of posts for field report analysis and Game specific insights piled into the main blog post for any given week.

There will be some rules for this “forum” as such. I ask that you only keep your comments to addressing the field reports at hand and save your larger theoretical stuff for the main posts, or if relevant, keep the “bigger scope of things” posts to being as succinct as possible. There will be no moderation in this comment thread (spamming excepted), so realize it will be a very hot kitchen before you post. I will impose no restrictions on video links here, nor will I limit links to various, but pertinent articles.

Understand, this is an experiment for now. It’s likely this comment thread will exceed thousands of comments. I’ll be instituting new comment plug-ins for wordpress to deal with this in the future, but I may archive this page the the posts and refresh this page in the future as well. If this gets cumbersome I may simply institute a dedicated forum-style sub-site of The Rational Male to accommodate for Game specific questions.

So have at it, post your field reports and feel free to comment on the ones you have some particular insight for. Be forewarned that it’s likely things may get a bit salty at times and I expect a lot of back & forth with debate and disagreements, but that’s what this thread is for – to hash out Game particulars for your given situations.

If you’re really good with a bow and have deer around, a bow makes sense. If you live near a river, you might want a river access map. But be aware that rivers will tend to get fished out. A 250# buck will feed you for months.

@HABD Great article about Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine). We prescribe it for discoid lupus. I had two cases in the last week. One patient followed up last week and I prescribed it for scalp discoid lupus. Another patient I mentioned last week (before this news came out, on it’s effectiveness), for his skin of color, discoid lupus on his face (his chin). If we don’t make him better, that is an option.

“Location services” on a typical smartphone is a tracking device even if the GPS isn’t working. The South Koreans are using that data for contact tracing. The US Gov can do some of that now with “geofence” warrants, but no doubt wants more authority to access the data directly.

@Palma: as others have said, smartphones are being used in South Korea more or less in the same way (but less rigorous) than China’s QR code. They use it to “help” infected cases remember where they have been, and also to push notifications to the smartphones of everyone they thing was in contact with infected cases to notify them and tell them to stay put. It helps that South Korea has a culture of not wanting to cause inconvenience to others though.

Depends on population density where you are.

Here there’s a mandatory curfew after 8 p.m.. That’s necessary because of the population.

If you live somewhere with a population of 5-20 thousand, or course you don’t think it’s necessary until people start getting sick and spreading the infection.

There are going to be a lot of innocent people getting sick, but there’s going to be a lot of ” non believers ” putting everyone at risk. That’s the nature of things currently.

Ellen Degenerate is in her feed so it may be a “women in comfortable shoes” dyke type slang. She could be after the young girls IDK or care.

At any rate she is feeding off the publicity good or bad she still holds her entertainer position with a free pass,”you go gurl”.

The urban dictionary is always entertaining if not informative.

“Fresh Pasta is when you push a piece of cooked spaghetti through one side of a girl’s nose and have it come out the other nostrel. Then the same girl gives you head and while she swallows you hit her in the back of the neck, forcing her to cough and have your pink paste come out her nose and down the spaghetti.”

“I’d show that chick some fresh pasta.”

Apparently lots of cohabiting couples/married folks are starting to have a tough go of the ” stay inside ” thing. More than on law enforcement man in my social circle has said that ” domestic violence/fighting ” calls are beginning to noticeably increase. I find it fascinating and interesting how some people ( mostly women ime ) are almost horrified at the notion of having to spend large amounts of time with husbands or boyfriends, or even having to be around their own children and family members. It’s not simply cabin fever or going stir crazy, there’s something deeper at… Read more »

Blax Yeah women are definitely feeling the strain. And with the Day Of Reckoning approaching (April1) anxiety is increasing. I personally know of a 22 YO who is trying to sell pics to make ends meet. Going to get worse. On the flip side, Wife has been super industrious. She’d planned out two weeks of meals, stocked up on everything, busy in the kitchen and tending house to a greater degree than pre pandemic. She’s a bit on edge of course, nervous strain, but largely channeled to productive ends. She’s thinking of getting a garden growing. That said. Cats are… Read more »

Regarding Rollo’s books saving us MBPs – a friend once raved on about some post-apocalyptic movie in which the main character was tasked with delivering a book across the crumbling country and at the end the movie it shows the bible being delivered – in my version it would be a pack of Rollo’s books…

Probably Book of Eli. In that movie wet-wipes were used as a form of currency. Sorta like N95 masks / containers of hand sanitizer, maybe. lol.

Rollo, I think I can sum up your teachings in a simpler package: Hypergamy means that women want to breed with the best men they can. Strong, beautiful, admirable men whom it is a thrill to be with. This is not inherently bad, this is what drives evolution in every species. Thus, for men, life is a challenge to come out on top of that competition. Those that do not – the majority – will have to settle for what they can get (or perish). For women, this means the same – they can not all get with the top… Read more »

@IAS @HABD: if the “recovered” and “death” numbers are correct (maybe they aren’t) then the fatality rate can’t be much more than 10%. Also if the numbers from the Vo’ Euganeo town are true, where the entire 3k population was tested twice, then the fatality rate is lower. it is likely that the cfr IS down around 1-3%… bc of all the ‘not testing’ not being counted… and if your population doesn’t have prior ‘conditions’… with an intact med system… but here’s the question… if the med system gets flooded out by people needing kung flu care, do you count… Read more »

“it is likely that the cfr IS down around 1-3%… bc of all the ‘not testing’ not being counted… and if your population doesn’t have prior ‘conditions’… with an intact med system…” In the U.S., the confirmed case mortality rate IS around 1.25%…if we counted all the cases which haven’t been tested, it would be around 0.2%. Almost all are part of the at risk population. “if the med system gets flooded out by people needing kung flu care, do you count the heart attack/accident/etc victim that dies (that could have been easily saved with an intact (normal) med system)… Read more »

PalmaSailor So 5am I took it for a blast and moved it to a space that’s now available outside my flat. To keep the battery charged up, I assume. How often do you need to top it up? In your climate a lead-acid batter should hold a charge for weeks or even months, unless there’s some trickle of a drain on it. Modern cars do have things that stay “on” but shouldn’t drain a battery down that fast. Good on you for texting that to your son. Maybe time for us all to read Daniel Defoe’s “Journal of a plague… Read more »

@HABD:
the mutation is indeed a concern.

Anyway, these guys are using a lag to estimate case fatality rate:
https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26/6/20-0320_article

The Oxford optimists (aha) from CEBM have an update, they are also estimating the infected fatality rate (i.e. taking into account the asymptomatic not identified cases)
https://www.cebm.net/global-covid-19-case-fatality-rates/

Anyway, I have some (but not much) hope that the govs are competent enough to get massive testing going.

I was looking at the stats and I don’t quite get why the Germany numbers are so good, compared e.g. to Spain (we all know Italy is pretty much an unmitigated disaster).

Slight technical hitch is that if I did that the car won’t lock. And if the battery goes flat the car won’t unlock. And you need to unlock the car to replace the battery. But you can’t unlock it so it’s a main dealer tow. And they call THAT progress.

This must be a German car. Only German cleverness gets that silly.

Palma, disconect the neg it throws less spark, use a shim to keep the hood from latching then a chain or cable to padlock from underneath. Thats how I kept my battery down south at the border where they steal em every night. Your alarm may not work

@Blaximus I have been counseling younger men for years to take the lead/leadership role and quash dissent and complaints and dissuade questioning and interrogation from any woman. That must become internalized standard mode of operation. I think any man is capable of this if he understands the negative outcome over the long haul of the testing from chicks. @Sentient On the flip side, Wife has been super industrious.

Nice.

Related – sprinkle that breadcrumb of affirmation. “You are doing x great” then tuck in some direction “tomorrow let’s have/do y ” and then just a little follow up on accountability… Then toss another breadcrumb.

Italy’s numbers are suspect. One Italian doc says that patient deaths are counted in the COVID19 bag even if the death is due to an unrelated heart attack. To get counted, a patient merely has to test positive for Coronavirus.

“Germany pedantic-ness is probably showing the actual cause of death as the primary disorder.”

Somehow I doubt that Germans would list the secondary cause of death as the primary cause of death. But you’re probably right.

I got the Italian method of counting COVID19

theasdgamer

of counting deaths wrong. According to Prof Walter Ricciardi, scientific adviser to Italy’s minister of health, the country’s mortality rate is far higher due to demographics – the nation has the second oldest population worldwide – and the manner in which hospitals record deaths. The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus. On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from… Read more »

ASD, I doubt you can wish this away but keep trying ,it’s what you do best.

“Wishing Well
Blackfoot
Take off your hat; kick off your shoes.
I know you ain’t goin’ anywhere.
Run ’round the town, singin’ your blues.
I know you ain’t goin’ anywhere.
You’ve always been a good friend of mine,
But you’re always sayin’ farewell.
And the only time that you’re satisfied
Is with your feet in the wishing well.”
