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 »

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”.

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.

They are performing acts (issuing instructions) that were previously reinforced by the people (complying) and The people are not now complying.

Hope you’re right with that prenup-need.

The energy crisis will definitely get us into full-blown recession paired with robust inflation levels.

Even the green government party here recognized that they “will probably need some financial easing for the people” – yet they won’t drop a cent more than what’s necessary for people to think “they are helping us”.

On the other hand the problem could be solved very quick by just authorizing operation of NS2.

Yet they cannot do that without utterly loosing their face.

FOR THE RECORD…

Brokenman is the anti-Palma

I thought it was funny because of the audio book voice. If I hadn’t turned it into an audio book, I probably could not have gotten through it.

I did learn about Thai bar/prostitution culture and barfining, which was interesting.

It was a good listen while packing boxes.

Prenup was meant half jokingly. I thought the repeated word surrounded by parentheses gave it away.

If anyone can ride that horse (meant figuratively), Palma can do it.

But…

Interesting comment on ZH The Instagram generation think that warfare is like a computer game and expect instant gratification. Russia has no need to rush and want to minimize losses to civilians and infrastructure. Every day they take over more towns. The media is losing its ability to lie as the facts on the ground are starting to disprove their nonsense. Even more significantly their ability to influence Ukrainian civilians is waning. The people in the towns taken over by the Russians are receiving mountains of food aid. The local police force is back maintaining order, the shops are open… Read more »

All right guys, some business advice please. The biggest holding in my crypto portfolio (around 35-40% by value) is an obscure crypto project. It was one of my first investments years ago, and my first big success, and I have a big emotional investment in the project. At one point in 2020, I was 100x up on my investment, and then again about 50-75x in early 2021 but did not take meaningful profits (for reasons that were rational at the time but irrelevant now). Even in the current depressed market conditions I am still up about 8-10x which is pretty… Read more »

So that guy basically took and left England to go on holiday to Ukraine in the middle of a war to see for himself and find out what’s going on??

From what I can tell he’s not denying that there’s a war happening or anything but he is basically saying it’s nowhere near as bad as the media are portraying/sensationalizing it and that a lot of normal life is basically still going on in Ukraine?

PS – What’s this “33” stuff he keeps talking about? Like it’s some kind of magic number?

But the Russians cannot increase their chinese exports in a year either.

You’ve forgotten, or not realised that Russia is the apparent aggressor

Putin has been planning this for years.

It’s not a matter of increasing Chinese exports in a year, those contracts are already in place. It was anticipated.

Putin chose the date, time, and location of the battle.

He knew in advance and planned for it.

As for Europeans being able to get volumes up in 5 years, just in time supply chains are days. 5 years might as well be 5000 years.
