Re: Project ABP

He sucks given his years of training experience and the amount of resources and knowledge available to him here, done in such painstakingly babysitting fashion by Monte, no less. His RPE 10s look like 8s for a reason, I don't think it's programming. It's lack of heart.

Re: Project ABP

Evo and krunic remain the best part of this thread, which is even more sad because both of their lived experiences (or my impression thereof at least) would be invaluable at helping our hero progress.

Re: our hero, whether believing "being alpha" is an actual thing or believing it can be learned through watching poorly produced YouTube videos is dumber is probably a toss-up, and that it was an entirely foreseeable outcome doesn't make it less sad. AMS is just another mile marker along the highway of lost young men my generation and the next have generated; whether it's Jordan Peterson, Chapo, this ****, or any of a thousand other imitators, that preaching to a group of losers so desperate for simple acknowledgement that they actually exist that they'll subscribe to your Patreon is now a viable career path is a fairly negative sign for the progression of our society.

Gives me an idea for the "move to southeast asia to live out your porn fantasies" youtube channel and patreon account...Can you record some guest videos in ebonics about them GOT DAMN FEMAAAILLLS?

**** JP. The whole problem is that a generation of men have been stripped of their main purpose, that being marriage, family, kids, and sacrificing for these things in order to drive society forward. JP just wants men to head into the ****ing minefield regardless of the changes in society, technology, and the legal system that make it so negative EV emotionally, psychologically, and financially. I deem his advice damaging to most young men. I don't care if it works out "sometimes", those are still exceptions rather than rules. And when he's dealing with audiences of millions, you can ****ing bet living by his edicts will be similarly disastrous for the majority, regardless of any selection bias favoring generally smarter men becoming his religious ****ing acolytes. Even without all these changes, I can't stand the people glorifying "the old days". I bet tons of men were super unhappy and dissatisfied even with a firm sense of purpose dictated to them. I guess for the unintelligent and un-curious males like N1H, this was a necessity. But for those of us who are more open to new experiences and ways of life, having the option to forge our own path and discover our own purpose is the best thing I could have asked for. It seems ****ing ridiculous when f4ggot tradcons like jp discourage this and insist that the way of sacrifice, marriage, family, and kids is your ****ing moral duty. Maybe these things are necessary for civilizational progress, but that's already out the window because the other gender abandoned their "moral duty". Why should I need to stick to mine? If we're going into an individualistic free-for-all, you had best not allow one side to engage in it and forbid and shame the other one. Even if women were not so legally empowered to take a flaming diarrhea **** on a marriage because a 9/10 6'2 guy with a perfect chin and jaw line accidentally swiped right on their tinder profile, is the traditional arrangement really what would make you happy? Knowing all of the limitless other options you have in 2020 in terms of your life path?

I very literally put JP in a camp of more deceptive and damaging than AMS/CCW. Even if he's clearly a lot smarter and well spoken, I doubt living by his rules will lead to as much happiness as the dumbass alfafa male gurus.


I'm grateful to Coltaine (videos all demonetized and does not have a patreon because he has a real job) on youtube and my actual father for educating me early about the perils of the path JP advocates. After my first horrific breakup my dad's advice was "come with me to the Philippines bro", now I acknowledge this as the wisest thing I could have done and regret not doing so and learning the righteous path. But hey, China would teach me the same lessons. Don't need an internet dad like AMS/JP cause I've got a good one. I wish more fellas of this generation did too.

Perhaps we can find solace in the fact that this is only a phase and this too shall pass.

Looking back at my own life situation, personality traits, morals and values at different stages of my life, in many ways I'm still the same guy but in others I'm a completely different and reinvented person. I assume this is similar for all of us. Some maybe more than others.

Krunic moreso than me. I was already finished with msc and made more money than either of my parents at their peak earning years when I was 25 and just passed them up again this year while living in the third world. But, as you point out, ****** archvillain is too self absorbed and has too poor of reading skills to look to and reflect on the experiences of others and how their stories might apply to his current situation.

Re: Project ABP

Evo's post is beyond ridiculous. I usually spare him because he would probably go off the rails. His ranting post about N1 is more about him than N1.

But he has gone full delusional and now thinks being an English/Econ high school teacher in China and getting jacked on the breakfast of champions, are accomplishments.

Little pussies with no heart are exactly the first to get on sauce for vanity purposes. And 92 IQ individuals are exactly the type of minorities who cry uncle at a system that literally pays them to get their PHD, and instead go teach English in China.

It is true that I gave N1 a lot of respect because of his 6bb/100 winrate, something Evo no way could ever do with his weaksauce studying. But I am on the site now and it's very soft, so I lowered his power rating a little bit. Still though, hired without interview. Being honest, training hard, and having a 6 bb/100 is much better than what batshiet crazy Evo has to offer.

I don't teach English, dipshit.

go back to posting about how you'd be an accomplished ivy league math professor (or maybe it was MIT/Harvard specifically...) and winning master's olympia if you went to grad school/got on the sauce, two things you are way too much of a pussy to do. Those posts are way more entertaining.

Yeah of course! everyone with 6bb/100 at 1/2 is still living with their mom and ends up making a larger income when they move to starbucks instead of poker. Duh.

The rules of the locoverse are very different from reality.

yeah that win rate at 1/2 mixed with living with parents approaching or passing 30 and totally broke didn't gel, was the least believable plot device the writers came up with

Re: Project ABP

Re: EvoGHOW rant, great stuff as always. I will say that I think one's attitudes towards marriage are likely some combination of nature and nurture, as personality type and how marriage is modeled for you, generally by your own parents, seems like a decent level zero heuristic for predicting how one is likely to feel about it. I do think that marriage becoming less socially required and the ability (at least until a few months ago) to travel globally and make your own way is going to continue to depress marriage rates, and it's anyone's guess as to what, if any, long term societal stability issues that might engender. I will say that people not predisposed to wanting to be married feeling less forced to actually get married is most certainly a good thing, both for them personally and for the kids that aren't born to be raised by a person or persons that hate their life.

I mean, maybe; the world is full of dumb, hateful people that hate to learn remaining as such for their entire life, so I guess it depends on how cynical you happen to be. That it's similar for "all of us" likely doesn't mean much, as our population is more than a bit self-selected for, uh, let's be charitable and say "introspection."

Seems like we circled back to your idea of me as a YouTube self help personality awfully quickly, but my experience coaching N1, such as it was, convinced me there's no hope (at least not for the type of help and method of communication I'd be able to best provide).
