practice 2


PRACTICE 2
Yesterday we discussed how training for the military or corporation is largely worthless.  Training is usually a Gatekeeper.  In the military, you must be brainwashed into the proper mindset so you will belong to that particular system ( and, they need to wipe out that BS civilian prohibition on initiating violence ).  All the “Army Training, Sir” isn’t as important as the propaganda.  The corporation sends you to college so that you become a good little PC Soldier.  They want you to be feminine in nature, which better suits modern corporation structure ( Machiavellian rather than cooperative ).
*
As a cop, you are usually put on the street with an experienced partner who tells you to forget everything you learned in the academy.  The training was a gatekeeper.  You learn the real trade from someone actually practiced ( you can usually tell the ones not OJT’ed, the ones straight from school to position such as Constables or Bailiff’s, as they are book smart and street stupid ).  The student from medical school has to go through internship to get real world experience shown to them.  The school was background training and was an economic gatekeeper. 
*
Then, the sleep deprivation and double shift schedule acts as a form of brainwashing to instill the real training based on those well practiced.  The military does the same with lack of proper sleep.  As does, to a degree, the graveyard shift rookies inevitable work on the force.  This is a bit of a shortcut, the brainwashing and trauma training of those entrusted with violence or life saving.  Luckily for us old bastards that already went through that crap, we are already practiced in the real world, at least to the degree highly civilized folks can be.  We already have the background.
*
Trauma training isn’t just about brainwashing of course.  You do get a sense of accomplishment and confidence surviving the training.  It isn’t JUST a gatekeeper.  It trains you in other ways, so it isn’t useless.  But once you have experienced it, even in a completely unrelated field, you don’t need a repeat.  If you didn’t experience it, you have the duplication of a career in a regular job that slowly but steadily gave you experience and confidence.  The “civilian” version is just slower, years or decades rather than weeks or months.  By our age, we get to shortcut new training. 
*
So, by now, you realize it is NOT training.  It is practice.  Your training can easily be a book.  Or even a YouTube video.  Training courses are  usually just a money making scheme.  Because the guy training you cannot force you to practice ( I speak of informal settings here ).  If you JUST go to Gunsite Academy or a Tactical Tommy course, you will of course encounter new information.  But if you don’t practice you have learned nothing.  They aren’t worthless, as you might avoid reinventing the wheel, but they also are not mandatory. 
*
Do you really NEED to go to a wilderness survival class?  Or could you just go into the woods and start practicing woodcraft?  I don’t care for the concept of tactical training as it emulates a military taught to endanger themselves at close range.  As I said, stalking animals would be better practice.  But if you did insist on ninja training, would Airsoft be good practice?  I know my paintball experience was great for realizing how wasteful and expensive semi-auto was.  I don’t have any experience in Airsoft, so I don’t know the pro’s and con’s.  Paintball seemed to be too limiting to be overly practical.
*
Paintballs are too slow and the trajectory blows.  Plus, the range.  It was fun as hell, of course.  So was woodcraft, when I was a kid.  I just never practiced enough.  Let’s switch gears and talk about cooking.  Yes, I know it is not everyone’s cup of tea.  I don’t cook because I’m a Foodie.  I cook because I eat healthier and cheaper.  Almost every YouTube video I watch on cooking something new, my experience differs widely.  Even following directions exactly, I can’t even come close to duplicating.  That taught skill was very poor training.
*
I practice that dish a few times, it finally gets better results.  Inevitably, you must do something a little different.  That is why you practice.  To make perfect.  If I had gone to school to be a cook, I’d be out money and only be good at what I practiced enough in class.  Why would I have gone to the class?  There aren’t a million cookbooks out there?  The class has better equipment?  Right.  Money making scheme.  Read ( or watch ) to familiarize, then just start practicing.  That barber college you go to?  The students learn everything by butchering your hair at a discount.
*
All the class time is a monopoly gatekeeping device.  Anyone can cut hair.  With enough practice.  You can teach yourself whatever you want, as cheaply as you want.  You don’t need classes, and certainly NEVER buy expensive equipment at first.  Determine if reloading is for you by getting a Lee Loader, first.  Then you can drop $500 on the slick machines, if you get serious.  When you are learning to change spark plugs, you don’t need a few thousand bucks in Snap-On tools.  A few China Mart ones will get you started.
*
Taught skills are entirely functional, but not how they are done today.  An apprenticeship was on the job training, with practice.  So much practice it was monotonous and dull.  Because you always started at the bottom.  You didn’t start learning to work leather, but perhaps by tanning it first ( if I’m not mistaken, dog crap was a favorite addition to the water soak of the hides.  Yummy ).  Or other similar grunt work.  Even the dimmest bulbs could be taught through limitless repetition.  Part of today’s problems are from expecting too much so there is only training rather than practice.
*
Another aspect is greed.  Not only do those owning businesses expect you to train yourself, on your dime, they also want to pay you ever less in wages.  But that is inherent in capitalism.  A race to the bottom.  Do you notice how some of the few apprenticeships left are in Union trades?  I used to hate Unions, buying into the crony capitalism/globalism propaganda.  With experience working for those jokers, I would welcome Unions and severe tariffs again.  But be that as it may.  As things are constructed today, it is best to avoid most training, and just do it yourself, with practice.

  1. Off topic. I thought that I would provide an update on the previously mentioned Gab.ai Dissenter comments plugin. It is now available, and I downloaded it last night, and have tried it, and so far I am liking it. One flaw that I noticed is that after restarting my PC, the Dissenter tab did not reappear
    on my Firefox tool bar, and I had to reload it, but no biggie.

    For those who are not aware of what this plugin does, I’ll provide a brief explanation. This plugin allows you to either comment at an existing site, that perhaps already allows comments, but practices heavy handed moderation (such as moviechat.org, where the mods always censor right leaning views) or at a site that either once had a comments section, but perhaps did away with it (MSN and IMDB come to mind here). In other words, in the case of moviechat.org, you can comment in an entirely different comments section that runs on top of the site, but actually goes through Gab.ai, and there’s nothing the commie mods there can do about it. The same with fakebook and twatter, or any other pro-censorship site. Awesome stuff! Yes, you do need to sign up for a Gab account, and to download the Dissenter plugin (link below).

    And yes, you could even use it for the comments section here at this blog, if censorship ever becomes an issue.

    And no, I am not spamming, or affiliated with Gab in anyway, or being paid to spread the word. Just a dude that believes in the basic human right of free speech.

    2. re:
      moderators

      I managed to get on 'double secret' probation on a RecreationVehicle site and a boating site for using the word 'mohammed' combined with 'sweeping his cave while "tending" his goat'.

      In my defense, and for the first and last time, in each instance, I capitalized 'mohammed'.

      I know, right? What was I thinking.

    3. Can you use Muzzy? How about "followers of the Prophet"? Camel Jockies? Towelheads? Oooh, how about "middle eastern indigenous"?

    4. Well, I'm pretty sure that "sand African American" is off limits, though I once let loose with "rug pilot" and got away with it. Oh never mind, that was here :D

    5. Rug pilot, yeah, that still kills me :)

    6. “And yes, you could even use it for the comments section here at this blog, if censorship ever becomes an issue.”


      In case that came out the wrong way Jim, it wasn’t directed at you. I meant if blogger/google started practicing censorship.

    7. I took it to mean, if I had to censor to avoid Google banning me. So I guess we were on the same page. Although I think I'm usually more BadThink in my articles than the comments are.

    8. “As of a few minutes ago, 5-year old Landen is still alive.”


      I heard about this late the other evening. I might have known. Whenever one of the lefts protected class members commits a crime, the communists in the media take painstaking measures to cover up the identity of said perpetrator for as long as possible. If a white dude commits a crime, you'll have a full biography and pictorial on the dude 5 seconds later, followed by the NAACP, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, Johnny on the spot, to try and stir up as much shit as possible. And these days, the media idiots would find some way to blame whatever it was on Trump, lol :D

      I’ll bet if you mentioned something about the zebra killings in front of any millennial, not one of them will have ever even heard of this incident. You can rest assured that Dylann Roof is a household name though :D

    9. The OtherColors carrying on as pussy ass victims is actually a sound strategy. Look at the years long Muzzies Against Papist Churches campaign. But as soon as Notre Dame goes up in smoke no one dares accuse them of anything. We are licking the invaders asses and asking for seconds.

    10. “The OtherColors carrying on as pussy ass victims is actually a sound strategy”


      Yeah, I know it is Jim. In this sense, minorities are actually far smarter than most whites. Most whites will rabidly denounce things such as “white nationalism” (which is nothing but a trigger word these days) while turning a blind to, and even advocating nationalism for all other groups. Heck, even the ass pirates can have their own form of nationalism, in the form of “gay pride” (Right off, I don’t see the pride in the hobby of inserting foreign objects into one’s anus, but I guess that makes me the freak in a world where the lunatics run the asylum :D )

    11. Yes, you are a freak, but we love you more for it. :)

  2. Know what my first job was back in 72 as an architect apprentice? Painting job boards. The 24x24 plywood job signs installed on jobsites with the job number, building permits, etc. I did some other rudimentary stuff, and some actual drafting on house plans. Prior to that I did 2 years of schooling, while going to high school full time. I did that 1st job for a year for $1.65 an hour, then quit and got a job in concrete construction for $4.50 an hour and worked there for a year, then I went in the army for 4 years. After I got out I continued to work in architect apprentice roles and finally 14 years later, after that first job in 72, in 1986 I opened my own office. I believe I got a much broader education by working in a multitude of disciplines that educated me and gave me experience that a 4 year degree never would have. I passed this info on to our son when he was college aid and it was something he could believe in. He did 2 years of schooling them 5 years of working for others then got licensed and started his own biz. It wasn't until I started doing my own thing (which incidently, was the same thing I had been doing for others, except now I got to keep ALL the money) that I found out what living to the limits is all about. Looking back, working for others is very much like being in jail, which, I did a little bit of that too (3 days). Doing that 3 month stint at Walmart 10 years ago was not worth the $10k I was paid to do it, plus the money walmart paid. I was never so bored in my life. Now, I;d have to be paid $50k to work at walmart for 90 days. It is THAT boring. A 10 yo could do it, easily.

  3. Knowing what the good tools are (at least for me) has required I buy crappy ones first to make mistakes to even learn what a good tool is.

  4. Oh man, I hear you re: Paintball. Only I never put the cost of paintballs together with the cost of ammo.

    These are Dingobucks and roughly mid 90's and were bought at the field. But $0.10 per shot. Online today's Dingobucks $0.04 a shot so yeah, we paid over the odds.

    What I'm saying is that at $0.10 a shot it was expensive. Heaven forbid if you survived a couple of encounters expending rounds at $1 a go at the rate we were firing at our Paintball game. The other lesson, now thinking about it, is that Mr Pay & Spray with deep ammo supplies will paste Mr Slow and Sure. :SADPANDA:

    Fortunately semi-auto's aren't exactly common here in Dingoland after the false flag in 1996.

    1. No, no. No Sad Panda! You just need to be hiding when the first semi sprayers try for King Of The Hill. Then they run out because they can't stop spraying. They are their own worst enemy.
