I think that my emotional strength should be sufficient to keep me from being one of the 1 in 47 on average who choose to leave. I certainly hope so. Others have also encouraged that we are closely watched for our own good. April is too hectic for me, but Aug. would work. I also expect that once I register, I will again be welcomed at local I-group(s).

The sleep and food part of the weekend are irrelevant. Any man who attends will be so juiced that he won't really notice getting more or less sleep or more or less food. Sustenance is provided and men attending are monitored closely. FWIW

I was motivated to read everything I could from the thorough website. The source that originally had me concerned about sleep said "We require that participants have at least four hours of sleep each night, which again, is less than what men are used to, but something that most of us have done voluntarily at some point in our lives without ill effect." from http://mankindproject.org/mkp-response-houston-press-article-continued

I have, ironically, with my current schedule having to get up at 5:30am and teach as late as 8:15pm, that I have found myself getting by on occasion with the same amount. So this is not the concern that it was for me some months ago.

Food and sleep will be adequate. ;)

Cassidy, it was just some vague stuff I remember seeing online about six years ago.

Sorry Will. Just trying to address some concerns... and I was speaking from my experience. Others could be different.

We're sworn to secrecy about the schedule of the weekend (spoilers), and I judge that discussing how much sleep you get is close to violating that, so I'm uncomfortable with much more on this here.  I ask all those in the know to remember their commitment, and use their best judgment.

I have worked on many weekend even done MOS.

It is a very good experience.  Scheduling is the hardest part.

Tyler: Could you provide links to those stories?

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More

Admiring aspects of times of oppression

I was having a conversation with a woman today and I made a positive comparison to the style and composition of women in the Antebellum South. An African-American lady overheard me speaking and became extremely angry that I made a positive reference to a time when her ancestors were enslaved. I asked her if she thought the bubonic plague was the only thing going on before the European Renaissance, then I asked her if taxes would be the only reason an American would have stayed loyal to Britain…See More
