Today was a good day, and I came home with two items. Here they are:
The magazine is a regular read. Probably the best survivalist magazine out there in that it's full of practical information instead of advertising.
The book is part of what I will be calling my "basic training" selections. It is not political or paramilitary, but it doesn't need to be. It has a far more important purpose in teaching basic observation and documentation, among other things perhaps.
I was reading another blog today, and came across the term "black pill." Since I have a life and spend most of my time in the real world, I actually had to look it up and there went 30 seconds that I'll never get back.
My advice to anyone contemplating following that red/blue/black pill psychobabble is to visit a bookstore, wander around the asiles randomly until the voice in your head tells you to stop, and buy the first book that catches your eye for more than a few seconds. Then go have a coffee with the book and wait for some nerdy girl to chat you up. Congratulations, you now have a date. It might take a few tries, but the best girls are the ones that frequent bookstores.
Go out into the world. Observe and learn. Take on some self-reliance and preparedness hobbies that might get you laid by a cute nerdy girl. Get yourself a life you can enjoy, instead of being a black pill ballchinian. If the shit hits the fan you'll be ready. If it doesn't in your lifetime, that's a bonus.
