Hi,

Royal Navy pioneers 'pink and fluffy' techniques that will now be rolled out in Army and RAF.

See https://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/news/u ... fy-2922546

Quote

"The Royal Navy has been experimenting with techniques some criticise as being 'pink and fluffy’, to improve mental toughness.

One Officer Cadet, whose group was "getting stressed" when it got lost whilst on exercise, revealed they used "collective breathing exercises" to calm down, after the "group identified that we were becoming argumentative and brash with each other".

The experiment with next generation team mindfulness training went so well it is reportedly now being rolled out in both the British Army and the RAF."

---

Bloody hell, what`s this country coming to.

Regards, Mick.D

It's an old practice Mick...

Think back... When we got lost we had to work harder and longer to get back on track... We were all expected to keep breathing... Failure to do so usually ended in death...

You know... I can understand the men that stood in the trenches in WWI looking down on the men that fought WWII - not that they did other than in "EEEE, back in my day" bullshit to make themselves feel good but, for fuck's sake, what are these cunts that need "breathing exercises" going to have to complain about their offspring??? "EEEE, when I were a lad we had a three bedroom house, centrally heated with a fucking servant to cook for us, it were rough as fuck"!!!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again... I weep for my fucking country and, other than the wish to see family, have no other reason to return the the piece of shit that I clearly remember in my youth - a fine, upstanding country with people who cared about it...

If either of you had the fainest grasp of this subject ... honestly I would be amazed . And dont think that RN specialists are " Pink and Fuluffy " because they are not . Ever tried waterbording a RN Sbs . ? . Doesnt work . I wont go into the tech reasons ..well ..clinicaly .. its understood that there are biological and mental issues when you are drowning . Thats a far cry from pink and fluffy . When one knows the process .. No air ..lots of water ..Its managable . That is if you recognise the procidure .... Basicaly your mind is the last thing that dies .
Not a lot of people know that . :) ..
