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.

OTP I’m a big fan of private. And when I say private I mean the typical “prep” school (which may or may not have a religious affiliation/component) not small neighborhood charter schools or “mom led” bible schools etc. [Though they have their place]. May or may not also board, but something around $25K plus tuition per year. Main reasons No teacher’s union, no union BS. No elected school board. Limited government involvement. Capitalism works, consumers (parents) can invest their time money and talent and shape the environment they want. The administration is far more responsive to parent concerns and direction.… Read more »

Glad to hear you are still with us HABD. I put you in the camp that “COVID is real” not a imaginary virus…

Glad to hear from you @habd!

Now what do you mean by mass formation psychosis?
I mean it seems to me NATO does try hard to provoke a third world war as they know their power already declines in comparison with China and the first half of this decade may well seem to them to be the last chance for it – had to think of Dr. strangelove lol.

And then suddenly civil unrest in Kasachstan, CIA probably thought their local terrorists would do a better job there…

Mass formation psychosis explained in this video. i don’t completely buy it as full blown, i think you can change the subject for a different psychosis ad infinitum.

@NNN1 re mass formation psychosis… (and vaxx background and analysis…) joe rogan and dr malone… this link should work… (note – when dr malone talks about his acquaintance, rick bright, (the head of BARDA) who conspired with janet woodcock (FDA) to block hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine from early treatment approval… this was important enough to the deep state that they burned a highly placed asset (rick), who is now working for rockefeller…can’t get more ‘deep state’ than that…lol) https://rumble.com/vrv7k1-dr.-robert-malone-on-joe-rogans-podcast.html and an overview of the mass formation psychosis process… which you can see playing out in the real world just outside your… Read more »

HABD!! Great to see you’re back and recovering nicely, albeit slowly – seeing that post made my day!

Your anonymous Internet friends who you’ve never met were worried about you!

And on the plus side now you have way more natural immunity to COVID than any vaccine could give you..

Sentient – thanks for the detailed writeup and perspective – I think you’ve put me over the top with the decision. I get the analogy about white shoe professional firms – you’re pretty much describing my former employer and its USP. The description of the potential school is spot on too – the school I’m considering is urban (so no rolling green fields etc) but otherwise ticks every single other box you mentioned as a “typical prep school”. They even have a standing invitation on their website for parents to volunteer their skills, which the current public school made quite… Read more »

OTP “what really struck me was how mature and confident and self-possessed the kid…” Yeah that’s it exactly. I can say that this runs through the class, it’s not just the top 10%. Part of it is the discipline of the schedule, putting on the uniform, the rigor of the classes (not that they don’t work with sub stellar academics), this shared experience. They also do a ton of public speaking and presentations, service projects in the community etc. Very advanced social skills across the board. Also hen my kids got to college freshman year was a breeze. They were… Read more »

Thanks Sentient. Should be starting there in the next couple of months, depending on exactly when they can have him start. Why lacrosse and tennis in particular? I seem to remember you saying long ago something about how lacrosse is the last refuge of masculinity in schools etc, something along those lines to teach him male culture etc? I know the school has a shit ton of sports but not sure if they have those particular ones. He will definitely be doing boxing with me outside school (I think the school does have some kind of martial arts program but… Read more »

Lax is the least woke team contact sport. Ask any HS girl about a lax player and you get the image of a cocky funny asshole (that she will follow around like a puppy dog). Widely accessible (unlike hockey and football), great brotherhood, still plenty of contact to build toughness. Watch that Boy’s Latin video, take a look at those kids.

Tennis will build mental strength and provide easy entre to that country club set you may start to like. Also this

I’m pretty sure she doesn’t have problems attracting all kinds of men. Similarly any tabloid rag running one of these “stories” has no shame in running an attention-whore story with a “captain save a ho” tagline to attract eyeballs.
