No Way Out


I work with this younger fella, call him Kevin.  He is 27, comes from a fine family, is religious and is kinda sorta looking for a wife.  He is smart and fit.  Makes good money.  He doesn’t sleep around.

Another friend, Joe is young and married.  His wife has lots of friends and even more contacts.  Joe has checked out all of the single women that his wife knows, and deemed them all unsuitable for Kevin.  Many are fine in appearance.  More of them make ok money.  Some of them can be quite charming.   So what made them unsuitable?  Well, they were all basically sluts. It was understood that Kevin would not desire a slut.  It just went without saying.

Many of these women are getting desperate.  Yet they have no idea that they were effectively nixed from the list of a very good catch.  They can’t undo their past and present, so there is perhaps no way out for them (maybe they will get somebody to marry them up, perhaps someone with no self-respect).

As for Kevin, one wonders if there is no way out for him either.  Let us hope that there is.

    Simply not accepting a slut, saying no in the faces of these unacceptable “candidates”, overcoming his base urges. All will reinforce his frame, his independence. And Joe backstopping him helps. Vetting on his behalf, supporting his growing frame.

    As for the sluts? Who The Fuck Cares??

    They are Sluts. Self inflicted Wound.

    No one cares!!! Get used to it!! For the rest of your lives!!

    P.s. eventually Kevin will luck into a worthy girl in a small rural community or once he hits 35 and the sex drive wanes he will get used to a bachelor lifestyle.

    One of the best things ever written by a woman and….

    Yup I said Frame because the only thing a man can control is how he reacts to the world around him
    ……………………..

    No one lucks into a damn thing in this world. Let’s say Kevin is dropped into some magical pool of good-looking non sluts……. and that won’t be any random rural spot on the map….. I ain’t even saying virgin brides. Them non sluts are still driven by hypergammy, they are still natural born manipulators and they don’t want to marrying some chump. Way I reckon it, its the hypergammy keeping most of them off the cock sampler circuit. As in they can’t find high value men to slut around with. These non slut and virgin girls will still be after the highest status man they can land and most won’t care all that much ( upon initial contact) what the dudes N-count is.

    Kevin will still be competing against high value oppents. He’s going to need frame, power, cash, status, looks etc etc to pull any kind of non slut gal who ain’t a mud turtle or water buffalo

    Not to mention he’ll be a lamb to the slaughter post virgin marriage date if he doesn’t have the frame to counter act a womans natural born manipulation skills.

    horseman,
    I think it’s hilarious that anyone would have any concern whatsoever on how desperate a slut or whore feels, whether they were paid or not. Choices once made and performed cannot be undone, if a slut chooses the promiscuous lifestyle, being alone is her reward in the end. Men own females not one damn thing. You are right, reject all sluts.

    Ton said “Them non sluts are still driven by hypergammy, they are still natural born manipulators and they don’t want to marrying some chump.”
    AWALT – All men need to memorize this. Marrying a virgin is only the baseline of not accepting a previously used female (N=0), the man breaks the “seal” for himself, but she still must be managed, guided and corrected constantly.

    I simply believe that there are so few worthy virgins available here to wife up in the US that it is no longer worth the effort of looking for them. Those virgins that are here have also sipped some of the the kool-aid that feminism provides, even making most of them unsuitable for marriage. Honestly, Kevin and men like him are fucked if they are still looking for a suitable wife here….

    The peasants are revolting

    Lamia • an hour ago

    ‘It should be a matter of national honour that we want to ensure that justice is done, and seen to be done, in our courts for her actions.’

    Fine words. Twenty or so years ago they might have had some force.

    The reason that the vast majority of the public don’t want Begum to come back is that they know that such words are a callous, self-serving lie. It is simply not true that she would be punished properly, if at all. We don’t trust the authorities or courts in this country to protect us, and the media have been creepily pleading for this cold-blooded monster, who gloated about the murder of children in Manchester, to be treated as a victim. Now they are positively sobbing on her behalf. We are right not to trust them.

    It is largely those now saying, “Oh, but she should have been brought back to face the full force of the law” who have brought about this situation. Once she was back, they would be saying, “Where’s your evidence that she did anything wrong?” and even if she was jailed she would be out in a couple of years. That would be the ‘full force of the law’, so weakened has it been by years of cowardice by the authorities and ‘human rights’ agitation by supposed ‘liberals’.

    She should, of course, either be killed in Syria or on her way back, or be prosecuted for treason and rot to death in prison. We all know there is not the faintest chance of either. Every single person in the country knows that.

    The UK has managed to kill a fair number of jihadis, though sadly not nearly enough, and there is not a cat’s chance in hell of her serving life in prison.

    So unless we get a guarantee that Begum will either be killed or spend her life in prison, don’t lecture us on this matter about how ‘uneasy’ you metropolitan hand-wringers feel. The victims of ISIS have never elicited a fraction of outrage, sympathy or even interest on their behalf from ‘liberals’ compared to their gushing over scum like Begum. And most of us feel sick that for years government and courts have been putting decent British citizens at risk from Islamist monsters, and at a growing cost in innocent blood

    Jussie Smollett’s phony hate-crime story could have been taken apart in 24 hours, except for one thing: Nobody wanted to be the first to call bullsh**.

    Not the police, and I don’t blame them. Smollett is a vocal critic of President Donald Trump who checks two protected-category boxes: He is gay and he is black. No police officer comes out ahead in any encounter in which he has to explain that he isn’t a racist or a gay-basher.

    The plague of phony hate crimes on college campuses, often coinciding with controversial political events, isn’t the product of coincidence. It is a strategy. Fictitious, politically charged stories of rape — Lena Dunham’s encounter with “Barry” the College Republican, the lies published by Rolling Stone, etc.—are not the products of coincidence. These things happen in clusters for a reason. That is not to say they are being centrally directed as part of some kind of well-tempered conspiracy, but rather that they are the natural result of a certain kind of politics attached to a certain worldview.

    Merciless sympathy is used not only to silence doubters but to silence dissent. That is the purpose of conflating victims with political agendas. And if there aren’t any particularly useful victims around, you can always make something up.

    I reached out to Jeff Giesea, an entrepreneur and information warfare expert based in Washington, D.C. He describes DARVO as “a tactic of abusers when confronted where they deny, attack, and then shift blame. The term came from studies of emotional abuse and sexual trauma, but DARVO behavior shows up in many contexts.” He also views it as “a form of psychological warfare.”

    DARVO is a behavioral response that perpetrators use when met with their own wrongdoing. It is an acronym for Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender. As Mr. Giesea puts it, “DARVO is a gaslighting tactic to shift blame.”

    “I’m frankly seeing significant DARVO behavior from the media towards Trump supporters. When the media genuinely screw up, they often shift blame instead of taking responsibility,” says Jeff Giesea.

    Trump-supporters now find themselves in an abusive relationship with the “free press” and their own elected officials. Constant attacks on Trump and his base have become so normalized that any contradiction to that narrative seems only to fuel more attacks. That’s because the social engineers need you to get upset. Once an idea has been propagated, and even if it’s wrong or not even an argument, there’s already been so much disruption in emotion and personal thought that it becomes easier and easier for the offender to successfully use DARVO.

    ANSAS CITY, MO—After a lengthy dispute with his wife this morning, local man Lee Branscom expressed his great sorrow and regret over whatever he did in her dream last night that had her so ticked off at him, sources confirmed Tuesday.

    He attempted reasoning with her, using the “lame excuse” that he had no control over what dream Lee does, but after that failed, he resigned himself to apologizing for every action of the imaginary version of himself.

    “Honey, I know in your dream I hijacked a school bus, blew up the Empire State Building, and cheated on you with every other eligible woman in America, and for that, I am deeply sorry,” he said, putting his arm around her. “What else did I do again? Well, whatever it was, I apologize.”

    “I love you so much, and I’m so sorry that I hurt you in that way,” he said.

    “I’m just not really sure you mean it,” she replied. “You don’t seem like you really regret telling me you’re leaving me to join the UFC and then laughing as your head turned into a hot air balloon and you vomited out hundreds of 1-Up mushrooms and then disappeared down a green pipe.” She insisted that Branscom list off each of the things his dream self did and apologize for them individually.

    Branscom and his wife have made up, but he’s reportedly “really worried” about what the fictional version of himself will do tonight.

This is how we know that we don’t live in a big city where the unpleasant wankers do. Politeness that requires no effort but lubricates everyone’s day with a dab of the grease of first world country goodwill.

    At one point my wife made it plain that she thought I was raising a finger to those drivers, rather than a flat hand, fingers outspread. I realised right then that her image of me was so far twisted that the marriage was probably over. And I was right.

    In her tiny mind she thought that the man that she married went around giving the finger to everyone that did him a courtesy. She didn’t bother to look at what I was gesturing, because she already knew ‘the truth’.

    So…Netflix has remade Das Boot. How did that go? About how you’d expect
    ( https://www.spectator.co.uk/2019/02/like-getting-banksy-to-repaint-the-sistine-chapel-sky-atlantics-das-boot-reviewed/ )
    My boldies

    Remember the main word used to capture the intensity of that original series? Claustrophobic. So now — such genius! —they’ve decided to open up this confined, smelly and resolutely male world to make it more airy and inclusive. Now we haven’t just got German submariners (and the odd French tart on shore leave). We’ve also got gallant French resistance women, a plucky, attractive female lead, a leering Gestapo man, a Catholic priest, lots of scenes in and around La Rochelle, plus — de rigueur these days — some lesbian sex in episode four.

    I’m old enough to remember the era when lesbian sex existed in only two places: perfervid teenage fantasies and the mags that fuelled them. Now it has become so ubiquitous and is so barded with implicit, hectoring worthiness (‘See: no homophobia here!’) it ought to be patented as the world’s most effective anaphrodisiac. When I was a kid, it was Daleks that sent me hiding behind the sofa. Now it’s hot lesbo action.

    But never mind that, far worse is the lameness and inauthenticity of pretty much every scene not on the U-boat. With the original you were there, with the crew, seeing the war entirely from their point of view. When, in that memorable Gibraltar episode, they were strafed by a terrifying allied fighter aircraft, you found yourself rooting entirely for the Germans. Now, though, that perspective has broadened — fatally — so that when the U-boat gets depth-charged, you’re not just below the waves with the nervous crew, but also with two American crewmen leaning over the rails of their destroyer, exchanging platitudes about the fate of the submariners they’ve just wiped out. So instead of life in the raw, in close-up, we get a vapid, hackneyed panorama.

    women blaming men for their dreams?

    y’all continue to open my mind to the vast depravity of women. i’ve often fine-tooth-combed myself during my first marriage to figure out what i did wrong to cause him to do the things he did, and most of my stupidity was in the early years of our marriage when i was young – learned real quick how stupid i was and cleaned that up on most of it – but, sheesh! y’all make my stuff piddly! blaming a man for what he did in her dreams and making him apologize for that? that’s … crazy. (have to remember Which is more of a window into (his) her soul then anything reality based)

    the closest thing i can relate to is if i watch a horror or intense suspense movie/show, i’ll have nightmares about it and dream i’m the one being chased and start screaming in my dream. so i don’t watch stuff like that. still have nightmares like that, and my family will wake me up.

    but to blame someone for what they did in your dream and expect them to apologize?

    Yet the female dominance on college campuses has two opposite sides of the equation: the disparity not only highlights what actions women are now taking, it also exposes the things men no longer do.

    For one, greater numbers of young men appear to be losing their taste for employment generally. According to a 2017 NBER working paper, men between the ages of 21 and 30 exhibited a dramatic drop in work hours compared to their older counterparts; the study’s data showed these young men “shifted their leisure to video gaming and other recreational computer activities” in lieu of working.

    Even within college campuses, men are beginning to cluster into more traditionally “male” majors and have begun eschewing classes in, for example, “soft sciences” like the humanities.

    In 2015, 61 percent of all advanced degrees in the humanities (arts, language, history, etc.) were earned by women. While men have moved toward higher-earning majors (primarily in math and technology), women have taken over majors previously dominated by their male colleagues. For instance, in 2017, an eye-popping 68 percent of journalism bachelor’s degrees went to women.

    The number one thing women do to torpedo their good relationships is basically act like a total bitch to their husbands. Sex deprivation, nagging, bitching, complaining, refusing to cooperate/compromise, insisting on your own way all the time.

    And the causes are:

    Wait for it:

    –she married a man she’s not sexually attracted to.

    –she’s accustomed to treating men like this because all her men put up with it until they don’t put up with it. And now she’s married, so he has to “put up with it”.

    –he puts up with it.

    –he’s accustomed to being treated like this because all women just “do this”.

    Many of these women are getting desperate. Yet they have no idea that they were effectively nixed from the list of a very good catch. They can’t undo their past and present, so there is perhaps no way out for them (maybe they will get somebody to marry them up, perhaps someone with no self-respect).

    Of course they’ll find someone to marry them up. All a desperate woman has to do is deploy a few well placed, well timed BJs and a man with extreme thirst and low self respect will be right there with a ring and a date ready to wife it up. Of course she’ll be able to find someone to marry her.

    I still believe this: Most women can very, very easily get SOME man SOMEWHERE to wife them up. Anytime she wants to get married, she can get that done. Anytime.

    Women aren’t marrying because they don’t want to marry, not yet. Not while there’s still “fun” and “excitement” to be had.

    As for Kevin, one wonders if there is no way out for him either.

    No, there isn’t. He’s so blue pill you could put him up against the sky and he’d disappear. Well, maybe there is a way out. Maybe he’ll get lucky and marry the first or second woman who cares about him. Maybe she’ll love him and she’s just as pie in the sky blue pill as he is. Maybe she’ll be able to keep herself in check. (I’m very serious here. Some guys just get really lucky.)

    Otherwise, no. Kevin really shouldn’t marry in his condition. At all. He’s completely unprepared for it.

    I think that my tale of WTF is down to the people that my wife mixed with.

    Before the marriage she was a student/trainee and I met and knew her friends. They were fine.

    She qualified (late twenties) around the time of marriage, her colleagues (female or gay) (whom I never met) (my guess) just decided that she was too young, too pretty, too happy…so they fucked her over. She lacked the character to tell her colleagues to piss off when they were just poisonous. Bit of a guess because I never met any of them.

    Her parents showed no interest in helping me get her back to reality (perhaps mummy loved the DRAMA), so the marriage was done…unless I wanted to simp. I told her before we married that that wasn’t going to happen, she should have listened because I meant it.

    Deti –

    as you well know, unfortunately mothers and older women do not prepare girls for marriage … instead they teach them:
    – you can do anything!
    – don’t get married too young.
    – get your degree and career before marriage.
    – get on birth control pills.
    – you’re sexy!

    so … from self-centered mothers, they learn and are taught to be self-centered. my friend’s parents mentor young people who are wanting to get married and young marrieds. she tells the women, “Until you’re ready to walk into a room with no windows and no doors, you are not ready for marriage.”

    iow, once you say ‘yes” to one man, you are saying ‘no’ to every other man every.single.time. for as long as you both shall live. no more competing for the attention of single men or any other man. no more dressing for any other man out there, only for your own husband. no more even thinking about it.

    and i think that’s another area where older women are remiss in training younger women … they do not teach them that there will be other men who come along to whom they are naturally attracted, and when that happens, they need to intentionally stop it immediately. they need to be made aware that there will come times when they have to intentionally say ‘no’ to other men, and they need the skills to do so. rather, they allow them to think all the gooey feelings on wedding day will last forever.

    they are certainly not taught about sex from older women – probably b/c those women are no longer having sex with their own husbands.

    But that’s just it—Smollett, if the latest reporting is true, was an eager puppy, jumping with joyous inattention into American social politics as he has encountered it coming of age in the 21st century. He would have known that in this moment, very important people would find him more interesting for having been hurt on the basis of his identity than for his fine performance on an interesting hit television show. He would have known this so well that it didn’t even occur to him that his story would have to be more credible than the dopey one he threw together about being jumped in near-Arctic temperatures by the only two white bullies in America with a mysterious fondness for a black soap hip-hopera. (Yet again, I’m assuming the latest reporting is accurate.)

    Only in an America in which matters of race are not as utterly irredeemable as we are often told could things get to the point that someone would pretend to be tortured in this way, acting oppression rather than suffering it, seeking to play a prophet out of a sense that playing a singer on television is not as glamorous as getting beaten up by white guys. That anyone could feel this way and act on it in the public sphere is, in a twisted way, a kind of privilege, and a sign that we have come further on race than we are often comfortable admitting.

    A private hotel requires a membership fee, vetting, professional standing. But it’s much more private and discreet than, say, the Princeton Club in NYC, where members socialize, entertain clients, etc. And which are now coed.

    You do not acknowledge anyone in a private hotel like that one, other than a stern good morning. A female guest says nothing unless requesting room service or a car. It’s a subterranean world. There’s no sign on the front. Membership is unpublished.

    For the record re: Das Boot.

    The typical American set is made of plywood and plaster. The Original Das Boot sets were made of historically correct materials, ie. steel, brass, even Bakelite cases for some of the electronic equipment. “Wild walls” (removable wall sections) were incorporated but when Wolfgang Petersen came on as director he ordered them bolted closed and never used them. The only “movie lights” used inside the sub were some fiber optic filaments threaded through the overhead plumbing … translation: virtually no Hollywood type lighting instruments were used.

    The film was shot in 16mm rather than the usual (for the USA) 35mm so they could more easily fit inside. They used primitive gyroscope mounts to hand hold the cameras. Gyros can be dangerous if you move in a way that fights the orientation of their spin. At one time, the story goes, they had damaged nearly every camera operator in Bavaria. You want claustrophobic? That’s how you get claustrophobic. Those guys were Bad Asses.

    I spent a wonderful afternoon many years after the production being shown around by the man who built the sub set. One guy and his assistant did most of the work, building several set sections that could be loaded on a gimbal so they could move like a real submarine during during shooting. A total of about 200′ of submarine. As I said, out of steel. A bolt for bolt copy (except for the engines) of the inner hull of a museum ship located in Kiel. The Germans don’t always show it but they can be balls to the wall filmmakers when they get the bit between their teeth.

    Wonderful post, Alan.

    I didn’t understand this: “Gyros can be dangerous if you move in a way that fights the orientation of their spin.”

    My understanding of a gyro (flight gyro) is it screwed in place and maintains a constaint attitude irrespective of a ship’s rotation, elevation, etc. So I don’t understand how a gyro on a gimbal becomes dangerous. Sincere question.

    BV: Yeah, I was a bit unclear. The gyro goes on the camera which is often connected to the cameraman with a shoulder/hip harness. When the shot is planned (my memory of Cold War era technology is fading) the gyro is spun in a direction that will best allow the camera man to move to get the shot. The gyro steadies out the rougher movements of the camera as it’s being manipulated to follow the actors. But when the gimbal moves the massive steel set to simulate the movements of the sub, and the actors go slightly off their “blocking” (missing their marks), sometimes the camera man has to adjust in a way that fights the gyro. A couple of inches or degrees of angle (especially in a crowded and narrow sub set) can make or break a shot so the camera op tries to push it … then sometimes the gyro pushes HIM (or torques him), slamming him into a bulkhead covered in valves or jerking the camera out of his grasp.

    My recollection is that this was a compact technology, much more compact than Steady Cam, though not nearly as effective, even under the best conditions. My understanding may be slightly inaccurate because it predates my not very impressive career in film by a few years and there’s a German to English issue too. Gyros were never very popular in the US and were vanishing even in Europe (they worked better on the smaller 16mm cameras) about 5 years before I started paying close attention.

    Another Das Boot achievement: the sea foam on the waves in their miniature tank. I don’t think anyone has ever done it better. Every little detail you get right like that takes attention off the things that don’t look right … like the fact that no one has ever been able to make water bead small enough to be in scale with miniatures, even if you add tons of alcohol or other chemicals.

    Fun fact: The full sized, floating, exterior Uboat set for Das Boot was also used for the Uboat in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
