I was watching an interesting video on the the internet that curtailed onto something that I'm sure interest's many of us. It said "Bruce Wayne didn't become Batman after his parents died, that is just what made him decide to become Batman." It then goes on to talk about how Bruce trained for years under the very greatest in multiple fields, from martial arts to forensics.

It then makes a list of all the people that could provide you with these Batman like skills in real life.

By the time a person became trained to the level of Batman, they would be too old to be Batman at his prime.

Perhaps not. I have a feeling immortality if not extreme longevity will become available in my life time. Human life span has doubled since not that long ago thanks to advances in medicine and technology. We can already fix heats andreplace limbs and eliminate certain diseases and now we're on the brink of an end all be all cure for cancer; any kind of cancer. A shot and a shock and your completely cancer free. It won't be long before we can fix anything in us and neutralize our aging genes and enhance our cognitive functions. Even an extremely old person who took care of their body and stayed in shape and ate healthy with the proper supplements and vitamins can be Batman as he was in his prime. Old age will soon become obsolete. Smile

The batman thing wasn't really my main point but... It terms of learning new skills there is this thing floating about called the 10000 hour rule, which stipulates that it take that long to master a skill. 

However in actual fact gaining competency in any skill take only around 20 hours! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MgBikgcWnY watch this, it's very intresting.

The point I'm making is that mastery isn't... practical. It's something born of passion for a subject. To just be able to harness a skill takes considerably less time indeed!

Indeed. My passion for martial art, well mainly just Krav Maga has given my the self defense proficiency as Batman. I may not be as fancy or have as big an arsenul of moves, (in truth I only know  a handful of moves; moves that I have done over, and over, and over, and over, and now are second nature.)

It's not how much you know, it's how much you can do with wha you know. One doesn't need to know that much to be scarily effective; as Bruce Lee once said "I fear not the man who has done a thousand kicks, I fear the man who has done one kick a thousand times."

The statement about 10,000 hours usually relates to a study that shows that it takes 10,000 hours of studying and practicing a discipline to be recognized as an "expert". You can master a skill in far less time than that. That's one problem with scientists trying to quantify what can't be quantified.

The principle is what is constant, and the most necessary thing to learn; knowledge constantly changes, and can be picked up as you go along.

I believe it is Stephen's group. The Tarot Group, and seeing as he's somewhat of a magician, Iassume the name is derivitive of Tarot cards sometimes used by mystics for the puposes of prognostication, or fortune telling.

Anyman is pretty much right. It's a group of smaller businesses... Everything from Private Investigation to security systems. 

But it's done for money, we aren't the cops no

regardless of what you can or cannot do. . .find yourself a mentor. . .in every aspect of your life. . .it will prove useful. . .you have no idea what skills others bring to the table until you ask them. . .it's not money. . .it's putting yourself out there saying. . .i need your advice. . .help me learn more than i already know. . .it translates to skills. . .
