The Biggest Miscalculation


What is the biggest miscalculation that young women make?  Undoubtedly, there are many candidates.

Here is perhaps the highest one on the ladder: confusing the sexual marketplace with the marriage marketplace.  It is easy enough to do with all of the intoxicating attention and the freebies.

So what precisely is the disconnect?  Manosphere veterans all know.  But as a service to naive young women, it will be explored here.  It all starts with the fact that young men really, really want sex now.  Marriage is on the back burner, maybe some time in the future.  They are interested in one thing only, not an array of attributes.

For other men, many of them older, marriage is about finding the right woman.  Typically the main criteria are that she is attractive and not a slut.  Stable, low maintenance with fine life skills are also a plus.  Note that almost all (except for attractiveness) are attributes discouraged by the sexual market place.

So there it is.  What will you aim for?

    How to give a cat a pill:

    Pick up cat and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat’s mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth, pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.

    Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat in left arm and repeat process.

    Retrieve cat from bedroom, and throw soggy pill away.

    Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm, holding rear paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right forefinger. Hold mouth shut for a count of ten.

    Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from top of wardrobe. Call spouse from garden.

    Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat’s throat vigorously.

    Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for gluing later.

    Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with head just visible from below armpit. Put pill in end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil, and blow down drinking straw.

    Check label to make sure pill not harmful to humans, drink 1 beer to take taste away. Apply Band-Aid to spouse’s forearm and remove blood from carpet with cold water and soap.

    Retrieve cat from neighbor’s shed. Get another pill. Open another beer. Place cat in cupboard, and close door onto neck, to leave head showing. Force mouth open with dessert spoon. Flick pill down throat with elastic band.

    Fetch screwdriver from garage and put cupboard door back on hinges. Drink beer. Fetch bottle of Scotch. Pour shot, drink. Apply cold compress to cheek and check records for date of last tetanus shot. Apply whiskey compress to cheek to disinfect. Toss back another shot. Throw T-shirt away and fetch new one from bedroom.

    Call fire department to retrieve the damn cat from tree across the road. Apologize to neighbor who crashed into fence while swerving to avoid cat. Take last pill from foil-wrap.

    Tie the little @!!@#@#$%’s front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table, find heavy-duty pruning gloves from shed. Push pill into mouth followed by large piece of steak filet. Be rough about it. Hold head vertically and pour 2 pints of water down throat to wash pill down.

    Consume remainder of Scotch. Get spouse to drive you to the emergency room, sit quietly while doctor stitches fingers and forearm and remove pill remnants from right eye. Call furniture shop on way home to order new table.

    Arrange for SPCA to collect mutant cat from hell and call local pet shop to see if they have any hamsters.

    Very interesting idea.

    The real test of a woman is after sex, say an hour after. Your hormones, your lust have calmed down. Your blindness by desire for her has been removed. And her most least effort on her part asset, her physicality has been used.

    Then in the calmness we see what she brings, what effort she makes.

    Random story:
    When Mike was at the hunting lodge he got more background story on something we’d heard a little of before. A few years back, one of the pilots (female) had been “dating” a Cuban guy for three years. She’s tried for a couple of years and then finally convinced our friend (another pilot, who owns the hunting lodge) to invite him over for a hunting trip. He usually only invites close friends and family, but this time he made and exception.
    So…the Cuban arrives and within a day gives them a sob story about his father being ill, and he has to leave immediately. He doesn’t have a car, so our friend lets him take his and the Cuban says he’ll leave it at the airport, he just needs to get there pronto.
    They never see him or the car again.
    The Cuban turned out to be one of the top drug cartel guys working in New York city/Miami…or some such.
    So, our friend is an airline pilot and was also in the military reserves then.
    The FBI thinks they have a sting operation involving the airlines, and the military reserves…and our friend is the focal point. They showed him photos of him meeting up with the Cuban, taking him to his private lodge and so forth.
    Anyway, this FBI “investigation” went on for months.
    They had tee shirts made that said, “No Cubans” after that.
    It was pretty funny.

    Seeing the way the FBI operated there…Now just imagine if Trump had that on him, and what the media would do with it.

    On 25th October 1994 29 year old US Navy Lieutenant Kara Hultgreen was killed whilst attempting to land on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln in the Pacific Ocean. The case remains highly controversial to this day and in the eyes of many an excellent example of the perils of affirmative action.

    Hultgreen was a recently qualified pilot flying the Grumman F-14A Tomcat with VFA-213, the “Black Lions”. USS Abraham Lincoln and its carrier air wing were training off the coast of California working up for a deployment to the Persian Gulf. Hultgreen’s aircraft was performing a landing on the carrier when she found herself to the right of the centreline of the landing area of the flight deck. She applied rudder to yaw the aircraft left and attempt to correct her approach. The F-14A was powered by two General Electric TF30 turbofan engines which were very sensitive to disturbed airflow into the engine. In yawing the aircraft to the left the nose of the Tomcat disrupted the flow of air into the port engine, which caused a compressor stall which resulted in a loss of power from the engine. The Tomcat has rather wide spaced engines and the resulting asymmetric thrust resulted in the aircraft’s nose yawing further to the left. Hultgreen applied full power, including reheat (afterburner) on the starboard engine which greatly exacerbated the effect of the asymmetric thrust given the aircraft’s low speed and high angle of attack as it was approaching to land. At such low speeds and with one engine out and the other in full reheat the aircraft didn’t have the rudder authority to correct the yaw from the huge amounts of asymmetric thrust. The aircraft continued yawing and rolling to the left when the Radar Intercept Officer (RIO, or back seater) initiated a command ejection which would eject both himself and the pilot from the aircraft. His seat ejected first and Hultgreen’s seat 0.4 seconds later. Unfortunately the aircraft had rolled over ninety degrees to the left when Hultgreen’s seat activated and she was fired into the sea and died instantly in the impact. The RIO, Lieutenant Matthew Klemish survived the ejection and was safely recovered from the water. They also recovered the broken remnants of Hultgreen’s flying helmet from the water. Nineteen days later the US Navy recovered her body from the sea bed, still strapped in to the ejection seat.

    The site’s author, Dan Harris, compares the mood in China today with the situation in Russia in the 1990s, when outside businesses would get repeatedly ripped off by their Russian partners, and would go away mystified that these partners would take the short term payouts of burning a foreign partner, at the expense of the much larger upside they could realize from an ongoing arrangement. For these Russian entrepreneur/bandits, Harris says, “They do not believe they will be able to operate freely five years or even one year from now. So though you see them as having irrationally sacrificed massive long term gains for much smaller short term rewards, they see themselves as having quite rationally grabbed what they could while it was still there.”

    Western firms hiring Chinese manufacturers find themselves taking delivery of junk that is totally unlike the samples they received before placing their main orders; discovering that their trademarks have been registered in China by their manufacturers (which means they can’t change suppliers, since the crooked manufacturer now owns the exclusive right to produce their products); finding that their manufacturers have disappeared (or that they never existed in the first place

    The early 90s were a really bad year for aviation. Navy and USAF were in competition to graduate the first female fighter pilots, and it showed. I know lots of people who went through pilot training then (Mike was one of them). It was a time when they cut 19 out of 20 male pilot slots (recession, and all that), but if you were a female flute player (not a euphemism, but maybe a euphemism) with no history of flying and said, “hey I wanna be a fighter pilot!” they let you in. They were kicking out men left and right be needed special permission to kick out a female…leadership wanted them to pass. Very badly. So they could put on their OPR they’d graduated a female fighter pilot.
    Anyway, it took about ten to fifteen years for the standards to get to the point a woman in the cockpit wasn’t an expected menace. They used to call them UAVs (unmanned air vehicles). Keep this in mind with the older crowd. Younger ones (mid thirties and lower) do have some okay female pilots. None of them are particularly spectacular, but they’re no longer dangerous.

    USAF academy kicked out their lesbian commandant of cadets recently. She was a disaster. One of the things she did was to go on a government paid TDY to see the opening of Captain Marvel. She made a cadet pay for some fo her uncompensated travel expenses.

    Her replacement is even worse. But she has three masters degrees! In a saner time one might ask how a person who has never taken time out of active duty could possibly have the time to get three masters degrees…while doing their full time job effectively.
    But a really strong, really independent woman can do it no doubt.
    They should just close the AF academy.

    Probably she thought Captain Marvel was the best movie ever.

    That flick was kinda popular at the opening, but is not weathering the test of time very well.

    On another note. Does anybody ever like a militant lesbian?

    Heh, I don’t know what her degrees are in. Probably something that sounds important but isn’t.
    Kind of funny on those bio profiles, I didn’t realize it’s up to the person to write their own bio-profile. I found this out at Mike’s last assumption of command. I’m looking at the other guy’s bio (they put a little pamphlet on each seat so people know what they’re getting) and then Mike’s. Mike’s bio was missing a LOT. I asked him about it and he said he didn’t want to brag. I told him if he doesn’t put enough on there everyone is going to wonder how he got that job. Anyway, I convinced him to put a couple more bullets on it, but he never completed it really.

    I should add, his retirement was a real shocker for a lot of people…”I didn’t know you did all that!”
    That’s the way he wanted it.

    I want to be president (of whatever) so I can be somebody.
    I want to be president (of whatever) so I can do something.

    Two different attitudes. No doubt based on skill sets.

    That difference in attitude explains a lot.
