I think Rory is the real deal, but I agree with you that training is always better than not training
The fact is that 99.999% of people just don't ever get into those situations to get the "real world" experience and it isn't feasible to ask them to! I've said that plenty of times. The first time you get into a "real world" situation where you need the knowledge, you don't have experience on your side... just training. This is true for subsequent "real world" situations as well. I'm not sure exactly "when" experience becomes "enough" or the over-riding factor, but IMNSHO, it isn't really early on. Personally (as you and Van-Sensei know) I had a number of "real world" successes before I had a very "real world" failure. I don't wish failure on the street on anyone, but I learned more from failure than from success. It took a lot longer to learn, but it has helped me... and it has helped me to be successful more and better since. I also not just believe, but know that earlier successes set me up for failure (for various reasons too numerous to discuss).
Two favors in your copious spare time... Please join the discussion that I started on Van-Sensei's forum about advantages & disadvantages... and if you get a chance could you send me those probiotic recommendations we discussed awhile back?
Also don't ask too many questions about this stuff or I have to mention my favorite treatment ever, the poop transplant for recurrent clostridium difficile colitis. Oops, too late.
