    Leaving

    It was good meeting you folks for the short time I was here, but life-changes have now compelled me to seek out the deeper country of ghosting.

    We are definitely the cast of liberated as we have left the plantation. Gaining Red Pill wisdom may make one feel damned at first, but that effect wears off. We do speak candidly and without fear, here, to put it mildly. Extra points for the "milk sop culture" reference along with the "useless murky women".
    I hope your profile name is an pseudonym. One should assume that vicious feminists lurk on these forums looking for prey.
    How did you realize that "chainsaw use and garage projects" weren't for you? Is this something like being mechanically disinclined?

    If your ok with it, what was "growing up as a shut in?" You seem worldly enough to me, though I'm not much of a judge.

    One a my pals home schooled their kids. Without the things they would of learned from classmates they never had, they are kind of helpless. Book smart, but street dumb. Don't think he did his kids any favors, but it's too late now.

    These guys who can do it all in the shop or garage, they all had ten thumbs when they started. Your not alone there.

    Good afternoon Steven! Sorry, this isn't a carnival ride or church raffle. The ticket to life is thru determination and self preservation.

    What was the defining moment that peaked your interest in going your own way?

    Re: A New Shadow Approaches the Theatre of the Real

    Welcome to the forum. I self published my first novel a couple of years ago. It was a fun project, but I'd never make a living at it. The band Heart once said in a song that "you've got to do what you can to keep your love alive, and try not to confuse it with what you do to survive." It's actually pretty good advice. I was in my 50's before I figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up. I hope you'll find your niche in life, and I hope we can help you find your way. You sound like you're heading into an adventure, and I hope I get to share a small part of that adventure here.

    [QUOTE=StevenCooper;123191]I'm guessing it's more of a matter of self-confidence; I'm able to do a couple of things such as change a tire or a car battery-- but it's only a tiny fraction of what the men of my family could do. These were guys who thought nothing of pulling down an oak tree or two (with ropes), lifting up truck beds with pure arm strength, and firing up the acetylene torch while barely missing a beat to oogle Kelly Bundy's tits. If anything it was a hypermasculine environment where I was the weak one. For my capabilities I max out at about a 100 pound lift, and for real intense work (like say dragging a trash can full of scrap metal and lifting cement bags as part of some casual yard clean up) I start getting dizzy and shadows at the edge of my vision after about 20 or 30 minutes. I don't know if that happens to other folks, but it seems like heart attack country to me so I sit down and puss out at that point.

    I agree that you were in a hypermasculine environment. You shouldn't feel apologetic about needing a break after 20 minutes of hard work or only being able to lift 100lbs. I get the impression that you are in your early to mid 20's. Men develop physically at different rates. I was slow, physically weak and in general physically underdeveloped until my latge 20's. I didn't even need to shave until college. I am quite familiar with being bullied because I was too weak to do anything about it. The men you were working with have likely worked hard for decades and also know how to use their strength. You can't expect to be on their level as a teenager. The pay off for being slower to develop is being slower to age, in my experience.

Not at all, I'm actually someone who took hard scientific material very close to microbiology and getting into the structure of life itself at a genetic level. What's not so cool is graduating with this kind of achievement into the Great Recession, and finding myself blacklisted from the majority of employment on social grounds.

    Just imagine for a second that you have one of those backyard inflatable swimming pools, filled all up with red-pills and I'm back there in a lab coat, chowing down. That's the kind of shock I experienced and the hard conversation that I now live by. Like hey, I understand how to splice a phosphorescent gene into E. Coli but I'm looking at a future of seasonal work only and living a freeter-type existence out of a storage unit. You go up to any given pharmaceutical manufacturing company and this is how it goes: You put in applications, phone calls, query letters and are mazed out and ignored until you ultimately visit the front desk and are physically removed by security. You wanna know why this is? Well, it turns out the company directly imports Muslims from overseas at 50% of the cost. Americans need not apply.

    So, elsewhere, there you are with your obsessive compulsive head melt-down where you're constantly processing information because eight years worth of high-tech training can arbitrarily be smited out of existence. You do this so some gynocentric human resources scab can invent reasons why you're not qualified for their shit-tier position-- such as public library reshelver-- when you've accessed scholarly databases and made trips to the Library of Congress along with Goddard. Space. Center. Keep in mind, this isn't phone-a-friend work we're talking about here, but moving a book from a metal cart into... wait for it now, an alpha-numeric system. I even asked them a question about a book that looked like a category misfile and they were unable to answer it.

    Well, the heck with them, I guess I'll have to make the jump from cosmetics factory to electrical apprentice to selling e-books and roll that into real estate, yeah! Needless to say I'm always interested in learning about alternative revenue streams or skillsets that I can default to.
    I understand very well what you have experienced. Even stem is not safe because there are so many social nuances and social networks you must navigate to land a good job that treats a scientist fairly and with dignity.

    Most of my starting intro jobs offered to me involved working in remote forested or swamp environments or being an errand boy shuffling paper work and mail from one office location to another.

    Being told I am under qualified for many of the job openings I applied to when my skills, talent and experience meet or exceed the criteria of those job openings. But often some of those that did the interviews with me would slip up. The interviewers that slipped up would say that I am overqualified which is more honest and I quickly realize they are just bringing me in to fill a quota for the interview process. However, that is not a good consolation prize when you are looking for work that offers some dignity for what you are trained to do and have a passion for. In the end it is still a learning process and a very humbling one to learn how the deck can be stacked.

    This is why I continue to work side gigs in my industry while looking at different passive income strategies. At the same time I still build experience, a social network and certifications. But I also completely bypass being forced to work in an office that doesn't value my experience, certs, and degree. Sometimes you have to think outside the box to avoid the traps that exist in the blue pill world.
