one day i woke up in blinding pain and couldn't move my left shoulder. When I went to the doctor the fuckshit told me i had "Parsonage Turner Syndrome" and would likely never be able to move my arm again.

Got a second opinion and the guys like "probably a slipped disc, lets get an mri" and it was a pretty bad slipped disc and they were like "we should do surgery, we'll have to go in through the front of your throat"

Got a third opinion and the dude was like "just chill for a while and see if it gets better."

It eventually got better.

When I asked the doctor what might have caused it he said "how many pillows do you sleep on?" and i said "two?" and he said "maybe just one from here on out."

though it's neat af that they do fake surgeries on people to do double-blind studies of surgical procedures

do abx testing where one person gets the regular surgery, one gets no surgery and one gets a random organ removed.

part of the thing about having kids is that you have to be a better person, if only for their sake. If that's the only reason you have, well that sucks pretty bad, but its still enough of a reason.

Life can suck regardless of wealth, some of the most miserable people i knew were immensely wealthy. Suffering is basically invariant across a wide cross-section of humans.

so a while back I was doing a thing for the USMC and I had to become a SME on Marine marksmanship so I spent some time on-base doing my thing.

Most of the enlisted men were too busy cleaning latrines or whatever enlisted men do all drat day so I ended up having dinner with one of the captains in charge of some ... idk, whatever, it was a long time ago.

AAAAnnnnyway he was pretty interesting and apparently one of those weird overachievers like the Miss America winners who are also Biochemistry PhD candidates at Stanford or whatever and was like 25 or something and already a Captain somehow and very earnest about everything.

At some point he mentioned he got an interesting section of recruits from very wealthy families who thought the Marines would be a great step into management and the World Of Business because of some Harvard Business School thing from decades ago.

I kind of made a joke about how it must be hard to get them to do all that basic training poo poo and he got thoughtful for a minute and said "if there's one thing this job has taught me it's that the hardest thing you've ever done is the hardest thing you've ever done, whether that's mowing a lawn or burying your mother" and that's really stuck with me for a long time.

poo poo someone call the ioc i think we've just stumbled on a way to get viewership up on the witner olympics



"Klas Lestander from Sweden became the world's first Olympic champion in Biathlon at the 1960 Olympics. Biathletes at that time used high-power centerfire rifles, normally in caliber 7.62 mm.
Soldiers in the U.S. Army 5th Infantry Regiment during a fullbore biathlon competition in Alaska December 2014.

From 1958 to 1965, only highpower centerfire cartridges (such as the .30-06 and 7.62 NATO) were used in international biathlon competitions."

now THIS is what i'm talkin about

Uptime Sinclair posted:

a second angle, he can also seem to be suggesting that a person’s hardest experience is only as difficult as they’ve had opportunity to experience, and that most can push past whatever their boundary of suffering is and finish basic training. the preparation from past suffering seems equal regardless of scope (ie he has not seen a difference in success rate between sheltered and hardened trainees). otherwise, his job experience wouldn’t have much direct relevance, or why he said it at all

exactly. no one fails out of boot camp because they're weak or privileged or hosed up or whatever, they fail because they refuse to change and get better (for whatever hosed up concept of 'better' the usmc had)
