EILI5/Dumb Questions/Q&A thread Anonymous 12012
Anons ask, anons answer.
If I put a glass screen protector over my phone camera, does it change the camera's quality or is it truly transparent so it doesn't make a difference? I can't test it out without removing the adhesive film. Thanks in advance
I wanna make this skirt, and I am kinda new to sewing in general.
I want to be able to wear it now and also when I go back to my former weight (10cm less of waist), so how should I measure the waistband?
Don't worry, you won't notice a difference even though front cameras are typically worse than the back camera. Plus the glass coating is already covering the lens. Even highly professional cameras use glass filters on top of the lens, sometimes several ones stacked (Neutral Density or Polarization filters), which yes, when scratched or dirty can mess with the image quality, but as long as you keep your phone decently clean, you won't notice at all and may actually save yourself the heartbreak of getting a scratch or a crack right above the lens.
'explain like i'm 5' aka short, easy explanations
Thanks, anon! You gave me the courage to put the screen protection and even though a teeny tiny speck of dirt (? i suppose) got stuck in it, it feels way better now. I have a bad experience with shattered screens so this feels nice and safer.
How did you feel the need to make this thread?
Just like I feel any other needs. I just feel it. I can't explain how
Unless you mean why?
Why did you feel this thread was necessary?
Because I and others have questions that sometimes Google can't answer. Like yours right there.
Why are you so bothered?
It means op is from reddit and desperately needs to go back. I agree, this thread is garbage and the weeb little girl picture makes it creepy.
Huh in my eyes this thread is quite useful for those questions that are quite daily or just too narrow for a new thread.
No need to be so butthurt about it…
Creepy? I just thought it was a cute drawing cause I like baked sweet potatos. If I knew it would trigger people I would've used other drawing, jeez.
And I am not even an avid reddit user, I once googled a question, got directed to that subreddit and liked the idea behind it. Kinda like the dumb questions thread on CGL.
Why does every thread gets infighting now?
I liked the idea, anon. I don't really use reddit, but I am aware of some of their subreddits and I think the ideas behind them are good. I'm not sure why people are getting so antsy over every little thing nowadays, too.
Stop shit stirring and ignore what you don't like. I don't see the word "moderator" in your name so why is anyone else supposed to care about you opinion on this thread? (I guess that's a pretty Q&A set up right there).
Lad, even if the op was from reddit (which she is not as she said), CC was advertised on reddit once so like, maybe chill with the gatekeeping or something? Why does it bother you so much? Need to talk about it?
The idea behind this thread isn't bad, just because the format is popular in reddit/started there does not mean a chan board cannot adapt it to its userbase. It's a fun idea after all.
[gay noises stop].…
is it true that eating meat makes body hair grow faster?
Making a thread that doesn't seem to have an apparent focus on any particular topic, coupled with the sole intent of making others fill it in is quite against imageboard/forum culture. At least get the ball rolling by asking a question yourself that exemplifies the standard you expect. Maybe something will come from it, but for now your thread is bad and you should feel bad.
No? What kind of fake ass science have you been reading?
Can't watch the video right now, but does it say anywhere how many centimetres the elastic back will add? You should probably make it for your former (and future) waist I guess…
I'm new to sewing and when I was faced with this dilemma I just used my future smaller measurements and used the finished thing as motivation to lose weight lol
I have a ton of old plants that I don't know the name of anymore and I already killed a few with too much/little water/sun. Does anyone know of a page or something where I can identify and find information like that on all of them?
Idk how well it works because i haven't played around too much with it, but there's an android (maybe ios too?) app called PictureThis from Dana Technology, where you point your camera at a plant and the app identifies it!
Also maybe post here and we can help! I love house plants. Otherwise if the app fails there's also /r/whatsthisplant.
Which is more tourist-friendly: Taiwan or Hong Kong?
Hong Kong cause EVERYBODY speaks english. And its fucking awesome. its my second most fave city in the world, next to Tokyo!
I've used the app, it worked the one time I needed it to. Hopefully it works for you as well.
Care to explain why it's one of your favorite places in more depth, anon? If it's not too bothersome, of course. Thanks!
agree, hong kong cool. glorious weaboo brit asia.
Hong Kong is my favorite place ever lol…glad to hear someone else likes it :)>>12130
Not the same anon, but I used to live there and am currently trying to move back (forever). It's amazing. Lots of stuff to do. Mountains, jungle, ocean, beaches, islands. Great public transit, nice people, lots of food. And again…lots to do.
Why doesn't our swallow reflex work on gum?
Because of the same reasons that anon >>12135
stated. The food is DELICIOUS and so cheap. The only thing that sucks a bit is that the apartments are suuuuper expensive…worth it tho.
Also Hong Kong Disney is half empty most of the days and its awesome to go there without having to deal with most mainland chinese (thank you disney shanghai for taking the burden).
Cant explain much but the vibe of it reminds me a bit of New York.
Did you live in Hong Kong with a work/WH visa or were you a citizen? I'd love to move to Hong Kong permanently but can't see it happening in my current situation.
effective way of getting across i'm a dumbass without seeming mean about it
I'm a dumbboo who still doesn't get it, I don't know that much about the anatomy inside of a mouth. Is it simply that a piece of gum is too big? I feel like chewy low grade gummis that feel like a hard gel are as hard to chew and can be as big. When I look this up online, all I get are articles on what happens when humans decide to ingest gum. But why don't we naturally just swallow it? Because we know you're not supposed to swallow gum? Because a standard sized piece is too big to trigger the reflex?
Is it possible for hair to "get" white instead of already just being white since the beginning?
I have a lot of white hairs, some at full lenght. And some are even black at the roots? How?
And is there even a possibility of reverting that?
not for long, they're building a bridge rn and soon it will be flooded with mainlanders. my fiance and i are moving there once he's done with college and hopefully will get a nice place. his family lives in kowloon near tst and we plan on moving near discovory bay.
don't forget all the japanese imported shit. hong kong. pompom purin cafe, laforet, list goes on.
Hope you have a nice job/ lots of money to afford a nice place in a nice area!
What is the name of this type of fucking pattern? I look everywhere as "checkered" or even "plaid" and can't find anything like this.
If I had to guess I'd say it's because it doesn't feel like food. Ever notice how we don't really chew and then swallow it all at once? We swallow little by little as we chew, progressively. We can't do that with gum because it doesn't break down no matter how much we chew, so the body probably doesn't identify it as edible. (had a similar experience eating octopus, it took a long time to chew and I had to manually swallow it because it wouldn't break down. I don't recommend eating that either.)
Since we're on the topic of gum: why isn't it biodegradable? I've made gum dissolve a couple times by chewing on it for too long (over 12 hours lol) so it doesn't seem like something that should stay on the ecosystem very long. Or is it biodegradable and I'm mixing it up with plastic?
Is there a place to ask someone to follow a private account for you on insta and screenshot what they post? I'm in the process of creating a fake one right now and building followers, but it's taking too long. Lol I know this sounds cyber stalkery but whatever, the chick has thousands of followers.
I have a legit looking throwaway account and don't mind doing it if you tell me. (put it in the email field maybe if you don't want it showing up on google)
Wow really? Should I contact you over discord (don't have one yet), since I'm not sure if it's ok to post the pics here? Not sure if you meant to put the person's account name in the email spot or something else (I'm dumb, sorry). Thanks in advance.
>>12184sage for samefag but here is my discord if anyone is interested in contacting me: erased#6237. Assuming this is ok to post
I sent you a friend request.
i've had cats. i've met friends cats. i've even made friends with a feral cat. i like em. so, my sister has a male cat who is about 1 year old. when the cat was little (before getting neutred) he was super agressive and hurt everyone. now he has calm down and gets along with people. even for a while with me.
but completely out of nowhere the cat has decided that he hates me. everytime he sees me he hisses or runs away. i'm not even touching him or doing anything he just gets mad when he sees me it lowkey hurts my feelings ;-; how do i make him stop hissing at me for no reason i want to be his friend. i've never had this problem with a cat before i think maybe he's just agressive or not very friendly? or maybe he senses that i'm evil i don't know but i don't like it anons! help me make friends with my sister's cat. when he was little i babysat him and fed him and now he takes any chance to hiss at me/hurt me/run away like i did something wrong and i don't know why. please forgive me mr cat i want your love
Do you have any other pets at home? Cats will get like that if they smell another strange animal on you. Whatever it is, it probably has to do with scent - does your sister's house have a specific scent he might be used to that you could emulate?
do men wipe after they pee?
some don't and some do, but they all should.
ohhhhhh, i actually live with my own female cat! maybe the scent of a different cat is making him scared. ahh, that does make sense! when he was little i could sleep with him, pet, feed him and everything. but nowadays he doesn't let me get near him. and now that you mention it, it did start around the time i got my new kitten…
maybe i could use my sisters hair gel or her perfume? she's out of town rn and i'm trying to watch after the cat. hopefully taking a shower before seeing the cat/wearing my sisters perfume or something can help? because that poor guy seems super stressed out and lonely i really want to help.
thank you anon!
Okay this sounds like weird pet mumbo jumbo, but I'd bet this works pretty well. Does your sister have a used hoodie around? Try wearing or rubbing it on some of your clothes before you go over there. Using some of her perfume might work well, too.
Glad to help!
Anyone know what these type of boxes are called and where I can buy them?
Thanks in advance!
Given that you don't see TP holders next to urinals I'm gonna say its a firm no>>12254
Thanks! Now I'll try to find an equivalent for my own language…>>12244
I guess publically, most don't, they just "shake it off", which is gross. Gladly, some use the cabinets and not only the urinals to also pee and can wipe afterwards. At home, I guess most do.
nah they don't, they can't anyway the pee usually disappears or stays under the foreskin like with it being in our labia. we can't even get all the pee when we wipe.
Thanks! I would've never known, I've never bought a hat in my life
(Or at least ones that come in these boxes)
>>12262>implying all men have foreskin
Some of them do wipe the peehole.
Wouldn't that hurt?
Anyway my stupid question is: how do I make long flights go faster? I've got one in 3 hours…
They don't wipe vigorously, mostly just dab until dry.
Did you bring things to do? Music, book, hand held vidya? Or if you will arrive morning local time, I would just find a way to knock out with sleepy anti-nausea meds (because takeoff and landing usually gives me intense motion sickness).
Nyquil or some sleeping pill.
Or if you are like me and dont like to sleep in flights, just entertain yourself with the movies onboard.
What's it like to basically have no muscle? Do you get tired by things like standing or walking too long??
I have a body type that basically builds muscle just by my existing, so I'm really curious about this.
Theres a "famous" lady that goes around holding talks about her disease…which i cant remember right now but its either "she cant make muscles" or "she cant have fat".
Can you make kimchi in plastic (acrylic) containers?
Yeah, but it's going to stain the shit out of it if it's clear or white.
Oh, okay, thanks anon! Guess that wouldn't be a problem for me, considering I'd only use it for kimchi. My main concern was about exploding or not being a good environment for fermentation and such.
I've done kimchi before but always storaged it in glass containers, but then I saw a nice air tight plastic one.
do i have to be a cosplayer/lolita to work at a maid cafe or can i just be a rando 6/10 girl who needs a job and shit? lol. theres only one maid cafe where i live so i want to believe they're lax with this type of stuff? do they usually just give you one of those maid costume things or am i supossed to spend $$$$ in lolita clothes just to work there? (cuz i can't afford that, i ain't got no money, that's why i'm looking for a job in the first place omg)
If you need a job and money why be so selective and look for one at a maid cafe? Go to a normal cafe and ask for a job there, sister.
Do garlic cloves ever go off? I've had some in my cupboard for months now and they still look fine, not brown or smelly or anything
When they do go bad, they go soft and rot, so you should be fine.
third world country, amiga. this isn't the first place i've been looking for AT ALL. being a college student with no experience basically means you're useless unless you drop out. cuz college drop outs are considered way more valuable becuse that way you work more and get paid less. so all those entry level jobs you're suggesting want
dropouts here and not college students/people with degrees. making it hard for me because anything above that wants experience that i don't have because i'm a college student that's going to get her degree soon. so i just want money and experience but i'm having a hard time.
so yeah i just imagined that since theres only one maid cafe in town they would just take whatever half cute girl in her 20s and wouldn't ask for much from me other than being decent looking. that's why i was sort of interested.i know a lot of the lurkers here into lolita/cosplay stuff so i thought i'd ask if i needed to have all that expensive lolita and cosplay stuff…so there you go anon… thanks i guess… tl;dr not every country has tons of job opportunities. this is one that interested me but i don't know a lot about lolita cafes. again, theres only ONE in my entire town. i was just asking a simple question dog why r u being so mean to me lemme ask my dumb questions
I was being rude to you because I didn't know if you needed to get a grip or not. I'm from what people would call a third world too and I've seen people being way too selective to get a job when they definitely need one.
well, it probably doesn't hurt
to be a cosplayer/lolita considering the type of customer that business model attracts, but it depends on whether it's a functioning business or whether it's the weeby owner's harem fantasy. a real maid cafe would most likely supply you with a uniform (or allow you to buy one at a discounted rate) while the latter usually expects you to come up with your own.
i'd really only apply there if it's been around for a few years and has an established reputation because, at least in the states, those maid cafes never seem to stick around for long and usually look like really shitty environments to work in. but if you're wanting to make decent tips from the neckbeards, you'll need to cultivate a following of regulars instead of just relying on being half-cute and female. think of it like a gig at hooters; you're not just a waitress, you're a ~model~ and ~entertainer~. it won't necessarily be any easier than being a server at a normal restaurant.
also try applying at some retail stores. that's where i got my first part-time job when i was in college.
lolita clothing=/=maid uniform, btw.
Why do men on the internet believe that a moderately attractive girl in a bar can readily get 20 or 30 guys who will do anything for her, in order to sniff her butt?
And who also believe that women can get power drunk with their attractiveness and obtain stuff that no man can obtain with the same level of effort?
because they have never been out
it really depends on the area and how she looks like too.
there are certain body language, dress, even physical features that men perceive to be more approachable, not necessarily more attractive.
Can someone explain to a relative newfag how stamina rose → lolcow
Some trolls from wherever started posting about how lolcow queen PixyTeri was molesting and taking lewds of some child she was babysitting. Another poster (PTNR), who was trolling PT for milk/info had recalled her babysitting at some point, so a lot of anons started freaking out. Many posts about contacting authorities later, SR Admin jumped ship and baleeted the site.
At the time, there was some lolcow crossover with Unichan (an imageboard obsessed with Boxxy and others). A long time friend and whiteknight of June (shoe0nhead) took the opportunity to create lolcow.farm as a honeypot to lure Unichan posters to LC, in order to figure out which of June's friends were shittalking her on anon by comparing their post IPs with their skype/facebook IPs.
The men you describe are the same ones that couldn't make it with the town bike in high school. Clueless and incapable of self-criticism, their ideas of dating are not based in reality whatsoever. It's just memes that get telephone gamed between bitter virgins who don't have much real life experience to dispell them.
I mean, this is the demographic appealed to by the sex industry. Maybe they just don't have any sexual experience beyond paying to cum, and think that the entire world does the same thing in a different way.
How do I meet my favorite celebrity?

Is sexting a problem in modern society?
Why would it be? People've been trading dirty letters since the dawn of time. James Joyce's sex letters to one of his love interests is dauting, btw. Fart fetish.
what if they're a musician
how do i get able to see them at the afterparty
yes, it is just making people more demented and selfish plus lots of people have problems with the law when they send n00ds to someone who ends up wanting revenge in the end. it spreads like wildfire.
okay explain moi what is the shitposting board (if any) and if none why is there no shitposting board or if i'm allowed to shitpost on /b/>>12493
do i really need to see a doctor before choosing a birth control pill? i had my hormones checked a year and a half ago and everything was normal. i don't need prescription to get them here.
I guess you can, but I wouldn't recommend it.
If you are getting it solely for birth control
, i'd recommend a copper IUD. Much safer and believe it or not, less damaging for your body. But then you'd need a doctor's appoiment.
Not if there are clinics that offer it, go ahead. The only warning would be to pay attention to your body and don't be afraid to change the type you use if it really isn't working out.>>12509
That is a reasonable suggestion, but for starting out it may seem daunting, also insertion requires a doctor. Anon should read up on the pros/cons of all BC methods to choose what works best for them.
bouncers and roadies are pigs. Show them your tits, they'll take you to where you need to go. I never tried it, but I had a former friend who got to meet Dave Draiman (spellcheck) that way.
and there used to be like, a groupie version of old school dontdatehimgirl. I don't remember the URL, but it was where I learned that Trent Reznor likes getting toyed in the ass. I suppose it's worth a little digging, but I can't find it. Maybe you can figure out what your crush likes, and just how nasty his road crew is.
What do ~normal~ men think of female virginity, deep down?
On one hand I have difficulty putting my faith in the rhetoric that every single guy secretly see the complete lack of prior sexual experience as the ideal, as it's paraded mostly by incels, but on the other hand I also can't help but see the possibility that guys who claim that they largely don't care about a woman's sexual experience, or even see virginity as a slightly negative thing are concealing their true thoughts to avoid social ostracism, or to obtain women's approval.
Most normie men don't think less of you if you're not a virgin anymore, but virginity is kind of a nice bonus from what I have seen. The only way most men may think less of you regarding sex is if you're the typical slut, etc. Most also won't think you're a weird freak if you're older and virgin as long as you give a good reason for being one, like not finding someone you actually
wanted to be with. It makes them feel a bit more special. The only normie men I know who didn't care about me being a virgin not even a tiny bit were the men who just wanted to fugg and would rather me be an experienced bitch.
Do you have any anecdotes to back up your claims? I mean, I'm kind of over mere theories at this point.
I answered based on things my exes/guys I got involved with told me. I lost my virginity in my 20s. I don't have any interesting stories to share though.
Hey all. How does one survive without an AC in the summer? I'm looking for sublets right now and the only place that appealed to me has none. I've always had AC so I don't know how to deal with no AC. I live in the Humid Continental (Köppen) climate zone fyi.
Box fans are god-tier. Experiment with a couple ways of setting them up, though. I've notice that sometimes you want the fan sending outside air in, and sometimes you want it sending inside air out.
When you open windows, the windows that face each other are the most important. Air will go in one window and out the other, and that cross breeze works the best for getting hot air out of there.
We would also lay down blankets on all of our upholstered furniture so the sweat wouldn't soak into the fabric. That stuff stinks up really quick if you let it.
Try to avoid using the oven and stove. It's just extra heat, microwaves and outdoor grills don't have that problem.
Girls who aren't virgins and are very outgoing might look intimidating and bossy, therefore becoming girlfriends who want to boss the guy around and take him to parties and be overly social and stuff.
>>12465>admin-sama was whiteknight of june in disguise
somehow i don't buy this. why would he have been so invested in the drama of the other lolcows if all he was looking for were ip addresses to harvest? plus the shoe0nhead thread didn't exist until way after the creation of lolcow, the main threads were usually about well-known weeb cows like VA/her mom, Kiki/Dakota, Pixyteri, etc.
if i was trying to figure out who was shittalking my pal on Unichan by comparing IPs, one of the first threads I would have made would have been a thread about said pal in order to bait people into posting. where'd you get this theory from?
Why does every active website or forum have a lot of shifty, shitty people?
And if it's active and good, why does it die out while the shit remains?
Check the most recent June thread.
>why would he have been so invested in the drama of the other lolcows if all he was looking for were ip addresses to harvest?
I never found him to feel "invested" about any lolcow. The whole air about the creation of lolcow as "I see your old site is gone. I have experience. here's a site". He has always seemed a bit detached and nonchalant about all the cows, which is what made him a decent admin in the first place. Though, it was through his nonchalance that the site got fucked up in the first place (questionable decisions like what was /snow/flakey and not and etc.).
>one of the first threads I would have made would have been a thread about said pal in order to bait people into posting
you sound lame and obvious. Shoe back then was nothing more than an attention whore from some backwater Boxxy chan. her threads were literally "her boobs are fake. no they aren't where's your proof. she looks like boxxy".
I don't care if you believe it.
how do i use 's?
's shows possession for a single thing, yes?
and s' for multiple.
so, the girls' shoes would be, multiple girls have shoes.
and, the girl's shoes would be, only one girl, yes?
but when would i use es?
i feel super dumb for asking this, i've been living in the states all my life.
he definitely took an interest in kiki, to the point of hiring an artist to create content for the big 'reveal' thread that she had been the source of the rampant sperging and taylor-r.-hate.
>shoe back then was nothing more than an attention whore from some backwater boxxy chan
which makes it all the more difficult to believe your tinfoil-hat theory that he made the entire site specifically to earn her favor or whatever and why i was asking if there was evidence of this.
What does ねちゃいましたね mean
es is for plural non-possessive for certain nouns.
not 100% sure, but sounds like "just slept"
ねる is the verb, afaik "shita" indicates past tense. The final ね is a speech/tone indicator that doesn't have semantic meaning.
that means depends on context though.
That makes total sense due to the context! Thank you.
It means "I accidentally fell asleep"
Is the "incel" phenomenon only restricted to males? By they way, does the word "incel" have any actual purpose, since prostitution is largely common?
i disagree. there are definitely female incels, but they don't form communities because they generally hate everyone and view the world as sluts and assholes. think like tomoko from watamote, those girls do definitely exist, but no one knows about them. they also pose as males within incel communities.
Okay, I'm gonna fess up and admit I joined an incel community briefly, but they were all too retarded to make conversation.
What does it mean if a person has the means to move out from their parents house but just… doesn't.
-Enjoy living with their family
-Are too comfortable with the situation to change
-They would feel sad alone
-Live in a country where that is socially acceptable
One or more of these.
You know what I hate? People who act condescending and passive aggressive during a debate (calling you an idiot, being a dickhead) for no good reason and you call them out for it, then there's always a second person jumping in going like "LELL NO U UR JUST GETTING SO OFFENDED" like they're trying to gaslight you. Why does this always happen?
A lot of people are absolutely unable to have a civil conversation/debate these days. If they manage to rail you up, to them that means they've won because pissing you off somehow means your arguments are invalid. Just stay faaar away from people like that.
It's because usually people don't have enough facts to back up their arguments and are too lazy to research what they "believe in", so they resort to name calling and being petty in hopes that it will tire out the other party and thus they will "win" the argument.
It's childish and retarded, but some people believe that just because the other person stopped talking or got mad because they got tired of their shit, they were right and "won".
All good reasons. Would like to add 2 more:
Saving money to buy their own place
Need to take care of elderly/disabled family members
How do I into politics if I know less than the average normalfag about that subject?
Start reading about it and following the news
Which one is better: Android or iPhone?
And is Mac better than Windows?
You should do yourself a favor and not learn about it altogether. It's bullshit, fearmongering and conspiracy. Sounds like you're not really interested in it and want to "learn" for other reasons to begin with so why bother trying to get into something like that.
I need an ELI5 irl. I have a car that I've owned for about 3 years now and I'm too scared to open it up, but I think I need to put more oil or water or something inside it. I'm scared I'll put the dishwasher fluid in the wrong hole and bork my car up though.
Why do people judge others by looks subconsciously but don't want to admit it even though there have been studies proving it? Is it because they'll seem shallow and bigoted if they admit it? Or they think they're more enlightened than the masse?
And why won't my cat scratch her scratching post instead of the furniture? It's driving me crazy.>>12838
It's all a matter of the uses you plan for your phone/computer and what you're already used to. I hate iPhones because of how you have to access the settings and the places where the "keys" are placed on the screen, the layout, but that's because I only got to use my sister's iPhone 4 some years ago and I'm more used to Android. I like how you have more buttons on Android phones and the fact that you can add a memory card, among other things.
don't cars come with instruction manuals (idk I don't drive). I'm sure you can look up the make and model of your car and find an instructional video online somewhere.
Haven't you been doing the regular maintenance for it? Unless you barely drive anywhere you must've had an oil change by now right? If you haven't, you really should take it in to an auto shop. They'll look over all that stuff for you. But if you can't afford it you should definitely look up the model/year of the car and watch some youtube videos on maintenance.
everyone judges people, but other people like to pretend they don't to virtue signal cause judging is apparently a negative thing. i think that (it being negative) should stop.
also make the scratch post more inviting with catnip, and make your furniture un-inviting by putting tinfoil on the places the cat scratches to freak it out, then it'll stop.
1. My boyfriend of ~4 months frequently tells me he likes me a lot. Some context: I'm very insecure (he's very handsome and intelligent, like disgustingly so), we broke up for a very short time then got back together (trying to overcompensate for that perood??) and he said that from his psychoanalysis as a kid that he is most likely on the spectrum (so he doesn't know when to stop?). Why would he say that a lot? A similar thing happened to me with a scumbag and he ended up fucking another girl when we were supposed to hang out. I know my boyfriend isn't like him but I can't help but wonder.
2. Has anyone been accepted into a masters program with a completely different undergrad program and mediocre marks? I don't like what I have studied to do, but I don't want to do another bachelor's degree… so I thought a masters would be a good option… but oh! My marks… my marks! Is there any hope??
>>12838>>12908>I hate iPhones because of how you have to access the settings and the places where the "keys" are placed on the screen, the layout
This. Figuring out how to use an iPhone is awful and confusing. My mom used to own an iPhone 5 and she would come to me a lot for her old people/technology problems. Recently she got an android and she agrees that they are far more intuitive and easier to handle.
>>13082>a completely different undergrad program
How different? I've seen it happen many times, at least where I live it's not as much your grad grades that matter but your masters project. I think it's hard if they're not connected at all
, but if you manage to find a link it's not impossible (for example, I've seen people with english degrees getting into bio masters because language acquisition is a neurological process, so they're linked)
I'm currently studying undergrad mathematics and I would like to study urban planning for my masters.
I don't know much about urban planning, but doesn't it involve some degree of math? (I know architecture does)
You should be able to find something… I think
Even with mediocre marks? My gpa is just at 70% lol
If you really want to do this grad program, look into extra things you could do to make your application more appealing. Internship or volunteering in urban planning related positions, or take relevant classes if you're still in school. Doing relevant work will probably be more important, but it depends on the program. Find out more by contacting the institutions that you're interested in to see what their requirements are. Probably not a whole new degree, but just classes that are relevant prerequisites or related to core studies of the program.
Can I eat any type of fish raw? As in, is it safe?
For example sardines, herrings, catfish…
No, they may have parasites. Why would you want to have any type of fish raw anyway?
technically yes. lake/river fish have a higher likelihood of bacteria though. ocean fish have less, and farmed fish have basically none. fresh frozen or fresh is the safest. also there's not much you can do to prevent bacteria if the fish has it. vinegaring doesn't really do anything for it, neither does parboiling.
also, just to add make sure it's a fish fish. things like shellfish etc need to be handled very carefully, but things that are 'fish' only need to be fresh or fresh frozen (as in day caught) from a fish market or from a trustworthy store that sells 'sushi fish'. polite sage.
Is anyone else having trouble connecting to the farm? The fuck is going on?
The site has been down for almost 20 hours now. It's their shitty host. Not the first time it happens, btw. Not even the tempcow is available anymore.
Damn, new host when?
And did mods ever give a proper explanation for taking away temp?
nope. they won't explain anything. they just keep saying it's "their discretion" so fuck us i guess.
Have you ever eaten sushi, anon? lol It's not a new concept. I honestly prefer raw fish, I mean, I like it prepared in anyway, but for me, the flavor and texture really comes out when it's raw. I feel like a lot of fish that I bake or fry and such ended up being "samey". The taste is delicious, ofc, but it isn't as distinct as when it is raw.>>13133>>13134
Thank you so much for this complete answer, anon! One of the current season fishes that I really like is actually a river one (Tilapia), but I am almost sure it's farmed. (especially because their native river is always compromised by droughts, which really sucks)
I also really like flounder, so I am glad to hear sea fish are safer in general.
Another dumb question, is it because of the salt?
I've eaten raw fish for a long time, but I am just now learning about new fishes than the ones I always consumed raw (salmon, tuna, st. peter's fish, trout, etc) and looking for fresher and cheaper seasonal fish. As I said, I do prefer them raw (in general), and it's also easier to prep it.
yep it is because of the salt basically. a lot of bacteria is transported to bodies of water via rain, but many cannot survive in the harsh salt waters. also the chances of fish having bacteria in the ocean is lowered because of the sheer number of creatures.
it's not exactly new for lolcow to randomly go down without any reason, this is why lolcow is being a massive joke of a site
don't get me wrong they have amazing threads and whatnot but the people who run the site need to get a grip
getting banned for retarded reasons, hellweek, peoples posts getting randomly deleted without reason, and I MIGHT have been able to deal with that but to put the cherry on the cake, of course they go down randomly, without reason, and don't even bother putting temp cow up
mods are lazy, ban for anything and everything but trolls and incels can stay because all it is "taboo opinions", but you can't even agree with someone who is derailing without getting banned, I just with crystal cafe had a snow section and wasn't as slow
if all types of fish were appropriate to be eaten raw, don't you think the Japanese would usually do that? You don't have to get salty for no reason.
…they do. obviously fish that they can't get fresh in their country isn't eaten raw, idiot. they also eat chicken raw lol. you're the weirdo who doesn't know about sushi.
>>13168>you're the weirdo who doesn't know about sushi.
only a handful of places eat chicken raw and that's seen as risky by some people. Your raging Asian boner is showing so calm down.
I wasn't salty at all lol Sorry if it came across as that. I just thought it was weird because sushi is everywhere and you were baffled that someone would eat raw fish. Kinda like if you asked me why would I want to eat raw vegetables.
as long as you can be sure the source of the meat is very particular about keeping the animals clean, you can eat every meat raw without problems.
not eating certain meats raw is a matter of culture, and if the culture doesn't eat the meat raw they don't put in the extra money and resources to ensure pathogens and stuff doesn't get to the animals.
Do you use "an" before a pronounced vowel (one which is not written down) or a written one?
Ex: an MC(an emcee) vs a MC(a emcee)
Pronounced vowel. Hence why it is "an hour" but not "an hospital".
An MC would be the correct usage.
I'm curious though, if you pronounce "herb" with an "h" sound, is it "an herb" or "a herb"? I don't pronounce the "h", so for me it is "an herb".
Yes, I know.
I'm American, so it is "an herb". Do UK English speakers say "a herb" because of the pronounced "h"? Was my question.
that anon just wants to bitch it seems.
Brit lass here, "a herb" is correct. Never really understood why you dropped the H across the pond
Fun fact, "herb" is a loanword from French so the original pronunciation was "erb". You Brits actually added the 'h' sounds to stuff lol
Are recruitment agencies worth it if you're just looking for summer work in an office etc?
I guess I should ask this in /nsfw/ but I consider it a dumb question so I'm gonna ask it here
just bought my first dildo, its made of jelly. i plan on "breaking" my own hymen to facilitate things when I start my proper sex life. is this a good choice of material or it doesn't really matter?
you must be female and over 18 to post
jelly material is toxic so you really should have researched more before purchasing, and if you think the hymen exists/is something that needs to be broken then you should research more about the female body
But anon, the hymen do exist and it can be "broken". The thing is; this shouldn't matter nor be determinent of a woman's value, and that's the problem with it.
I think it's a good idea that she tries to break the membrane by herself since a lot of men just simply don't care. It's better than cleaning bloody sheets later.
The material doesn't matter (I can't say if jelly is toxic or not for I don't know), the important thing is that you're very wet (or have tons of lube) and, mostly important, very relaxed. It should be quick once you are ready, it's a very thin membrane after all. Some women don't even have it at all and some have just a small "thread". There should not be blood if you do things slowly, at least not enough to stain anything.
However this will not "facilitate" things when you are with a partner. It's all very situational. If you are stressed out with a partner, it will hurt with or without your hymen, because it's truly such a puny part of the female body.
for the sex toy material thing: http://dangerouslilly.com/2010/10/yes-jelly-sex-toys-can-be-dangerous/
as for hymens ive never had anything to 'break' and no i dont ride horses so i find all the hype around it bullshit, if they exist then they are not supposed to be torn, foreplay is important for the first time so its wet and stretchy down there, of course you will bleed if he shoves it in dry and starts pounding like a jackhammer
and you need to stop being a cunt for no reason, learn what the use of " " means and keep in mind this thread is for dumb questions.>>13234
Thank you for your post and for the link, I still can return the dildo since it's still in the packaging and I have the receipt.
Are you a literal tranny or something? How is someone that knowledgeable about dildos that retarded about the female body?
Why are you calling the other anon names? She's not entirely wrong. All hymens have holes (y'know, for periods and stuff). During sex the hymen doesn't actually break, the existing hole stretches. It can be a slow, not so painful stretch; or it can be stupid fast and painful if your partner is an ass. That said, it does depend on your own anatomy - sometimes it's easier, some women have the hymen more "rigid", some might even require a surgery.
Holy shit why everybody got so upset about ONE simple question? The anons above me need to RELAX.
To answer your question: it doesn't really matter.
Are YOU a literal tranny or something? my vagina is offended by your stupidity, my opnions on hymens come from careful research, if becoming an OB-GYN didnt take so fucking long i might have tried becoming one>>13236
im sorry, just when i hear about 'hymen breaking' it makes me think of teen girls who wouldnt know any better
>>13265>my opnions on hymens come from careful research
you should stop researching about hymens for a little and research the use of "". There is a reason why I used "" in my original post, which I suggest you should read again. The only thing offensive here is your own stupitidy.
I did it myself because I was terrified of it happening for the first time during sex. Buy a bottle of lube and use your fingers, that's what I did. It'll probably hurt the first few times but it'll hurt a lot less than some inconsiderate, inexperienced guy shoving something bigger up there dry. Just take your time and be gentle, there's no reason why it should hurt too much or for you to bleed.>>13232>if you think the hymen exists
You should do more research about the female body before coming here and trying to larp as a woman and tell women what to do with their lives. Sick fuck.
Is it bad if I use normal face moisturizer also on my eyes?
I don't know if it's bad or not but I going to guess that it is, since the skin around the eyes is really sensitive and thin. I think there are products for your eyes, pic related is something I use but not on a regular basis.
eat shit cunt
fuck whys it so hard for people to believe im a woman? guess im the only woman born without a hymen since everyone feels so strongly about its existence fucking hell
What does it feel like to buzz your hair?
emotionally or physically? lol, it felt freeing for me because i didnt feel stressed about making it look perfect everyday anymore but of course people will make assumptions since 'why would a woman not want her hair?'
physically its fun to run your hand through it. at some point maybe 2cm it can hurt when you bend the hair a different way
if you leave it to grow out at all the same length it can look like you have a mullet since the hair on top sticks up but the hair on the back just grows straight down which sucks lmao
I guess more of running the buzzer through your hair. It looks kind of comfy, but at the same time it's a sharpish blade right?
i dont remember it much, i think when its going through long hair it felt bad like tugging sensation, when its shorter it feels better you mostly feel the guard thingy (for setting the length) running through your hair
nothing is more comfy than running actual fingers through your hair though so you arent missing much
Thank you for the recommendation, the packaging is so cute!
Another anon with currently buzzed hair. It was scary at first because the shortest I've had my hair as a teen and beyond was a bob, but I've always wanted to go bald or very close to it. I just went to a hair salon and asked them to buzz it; it felt really good!
I feel like women get too caught up with the archaic and arbitrary definitons of femininity, especially my mother, who thinks I look like a lesbian lol..
I learned how to define my own femininity, as cheesy as that sounds, and it made me more confident in my looks because I had
to – I had no hair to hide behind, and that was a very cool learning experience.
I would recommend it for all women who have been thinking about it! It's just hair after all.
How do I know for sure my interest in girls was just a phase?
Do you still fantasise about them? Does looking at a lewd girl get you off? If so not a phase.
Nowadays, it seems like the most used tactic to denigrate a youtube channel is to talk crap about its titles. "Oh so clickbait, very out of context, such caps lock, wowzers11".
I'm not gonna ask why do people find that persuading, most of those who use this "piece of insight" are just parroting someone else just as some other anon rightfully observed in another thread, and the others are following. It's almost as if they have a 6th sense designated to detect when has their once "flavorite" channel decreased in popularity, moment when they turn their backs to it and start shittalking.
But why has this trend started? Who are they parroting? Don't be too hard on me pls, I'm not rly in touch with the "bigbois" of youtube, pewdiepie, the pauls or drama channels and their history. What made people accept (as a fact) that clickbait=shit content?
Ok, here we go.
Is there any youtube video, book, movie, documentary, series or anything similar that can teach me about people from the real world?

How do you mean? As in how they act and things?
Y-yea, how they act, why they act how they act, when they are not acting how they are supposed to act.
Why is vanity sizing so ridiculous now?
I bought a pair of high waisted jeans that fit very comfortably, a little loose and it's waist size is 23 inches. I lol'd and measured myself and I have a 26 inch waist. before the humblebrag accusations, I'm 5' so this is not an impressive measurement It's one thing to change a size L to an M, but lying about the actual measurement?
Sizes have gotten ridiculous. They keep getting bigger and bigger no matter where you go if you just need to grab a fast fashion item and aren't above average weight or tall, forget about it unless you buy from high end shops to get a 300 dollar solid black tank top that will fit you properly. The struggle is real.
Where did this humblebrag meme come from by the way? I keep seeing it now even if there's literally no bragging going on.
Hey ladies guy here
I was wondering if a girl I know has been crushing on me. She tends to ignore me and talk to my friends. She is pretty outspoken, except when it's around me. She also seems kinda scared of me.
This shit has been bugging me for a while. Soon she'll be moving to Chicago so whatever but still…(YOU CAN'T SIT WITH US)
Can somebody give me a quick rundown on this Reiko guy?
Anons are probably traumatized by lolcow users. Both the humblebraggers and the "everything is a humble brag reee" anons have been insufferable lately.
Here's the quick rundown on this Reiko#3333 guy>Christian XXX bows to Reiko#3333 >In contact with /a/liens>Possess psychic-like manipulation>Controls Robot9001 with iron but fair thighs>Own castles & banks on Skywars >Direct descendants of Franklin D. Rooosevelt >Will bankroll the first transsexual colonies on Mars (Reikosburg will be be the first city) >Own 99% of HRT research facilities on Earth >First babies born from an artificial will in all likelihood be Reiko#3333 babies (male)>Reiko#3333 said to have 215+ harem members, such charisma on Earth has only existed deep in Bulgarian discords & Australia>Ancient Roman graffiti tell of an Angel who will descend upon Earth and will bring an era of pink pills & Estrogen progress never seen before.>They own Soylent R&D labs around the world >You likely have soy inside you right now >Reiko#3333 are in regular communication with Bailey Jay & Tira, forwarding the word of HRT to RGTOW. >(Who do you think set up the meeting between the /ARC/ MAIN & RGTOW command (First meeting between the two organisations in over 8 months) and arranged the /ARC/ MAIN leader's first trip to Rhode Island in history literally a few days later to the Reiko#3333 apartment in Delmarva?) >They learned fluent Swedish in under a week >Discord servers entrust their Reddit gold reserves with Reiko#3333. There's no reddit gold in r/nintendo, only r/Traptopia >Reiko#3333 is about 7 decades old, from the space-time reference point of the base human currently accepted by our society >In reality, he is a timeless being existing in all points of time and space from the big bang to the end of the universe. We don't know his ultimate plans yet. We hope he's a benevolent being(YOU CAN'T SIT WITH US)
Sizes have always been ridiculous, it's just easier and easier to notice I guess. How things are going to fit can depend on the brand, the cute of the clothes and other arbitrary criteria. I feel like the worst is definitely when sizes are indicated with XS to XL, those letters are way to vague to be able to know what fits.
And the humble bragging accusations on lolcow come from the fact that supposedly, a bunch of anons on threads I've hid (so hence the "supposedly") are legit humblebragging with posts like "I hate my body so much because I'm conventionally good-looking, petite with huge tits and ass and I get compliments all the time". And because of that, whenever someone will describe their body in a thread or post where it's relevant to ask for advice or something, they'll be accused of humblebragging and shitting on fat women or something. There's a weird logic behind it, and anons are confused as to who is showing off and who isn't since it's an anon imageboard. And people are too stupid to ignore the anons who actually humblebrag so it's has gotten worse and entire threads are getting derailed.
Are you all American? It's really hard to find plus size or XL in my country unless you really look for it.
It's one thing to rebrand the sizes XL -> L size, since 'extra large' and 'large' are just arbitrary descriptors, I was mostly shocked that they had jeans with ~26 inch waist size listed as 23, as if inches aren't a real unit of measurement anymore with a standard length. If that's a generally normal practice to shave off a few numbers from the measurement, than my b. I normally just try on several things in different sizes and go with whichever fits best, since there's too much variation.
Nope, French here. I mostly find things that are at least size 38 up to 46 or 48 easily (so basically size M to XL I'd say), but I can barely find anything my size in stores. I know I should buy clothes online because of this shit but I'd be too lazy to return the clothes if they don't fit me because I'm a lazy idiot. I go shopping often enough and yet I still don't have any decent formal clothes for in case I have a job interview, it's that bad, and it's getting worse from my point of view.
Why don't more white guys actively pursue white latinas and non muslim white levant women when they give the excuse of white girls being sluts when they go for east/southeast asian women? it doesnt make sense to me.
Is it possible for me to be stronger than a lot of skinny guys (think 5'7"-5'11" and 100-130 lbs with little muscle)? I've done a lot of searching online and some answers seem fetish-y (guys fantasizing about all women being amazons, which is fine but not solving anything) and others may be fueled by male ego ("even the strongest woman is weaker than ALL men").
Variables to consider: I have a wide frame and ~130 lbs of lean mass starting out and am planning to take lifting more seriously.
Asking because I dream of having a delicate bf.
It's just an excuse for them to keep being fetishists. They don't go for white Latinas or white Muslims because they look white, obviously.
No white guy I ask this question to ever gives a genuine response. Black men who actively pursue mixed race and latina women are far more honest. Really the white guys sneakiness and dishonesty about it makes me annoyed.
My boyfriend is 5'10 and he is between 120 -130 lbs, he can only bench press like 55 lb because he got his shoulder injured like 2 years ago and I can easily Lift more than him, he lost interest in going to the gym (I think it is because he doesn't feel comfortable around guys who bench press 120+ and his shoulder hurts) now days he does a lot of cardio and is more career oriented, I feel like I have to be stronger to protect him and he seems like he doesn't care if his woman con lift more than him so I will be strong for him
I'm pretty sure you won't find a gentle bf among the angry weak manlets who get insecure about their strength but among average people I suppose.
Unless you want to cocoon a weak maggot bf in which case yea, ofc you can do this if you force yourself enough
That sounds pretty conclusive, thanks! I also think it's really cute that you want to be strong for him that sounds ideal.>>13942
Thank you for your concern, but I'm somewhat optimistic that I can find a nice and
thin guy. In combination with knowing that the aforementioned strongwoman fetishists are out there, I've known at least a few normie men at my job that are happy and secure in being weaker and smaller than other men. But ofc I've never had a 1v1 fight/lifting competition with them either so I was wondering if I, as a woman, could reach a point where I could easily outdo such men.
Anon fighting and lifting is totally different I asked my boyfriend these questions
Q : "can a woman lift more than a man?"
A : " yes, women can endure more pain than men in general so they can train harder and apply more strength than men before they break down"
Q : "can a woman win a 1 v 1 fight against a man of the same weight?"
A : " fighting is more than just brute Force, it depends on skill and women can easily develop fighting skills"
Q : " so are men stronger than men ?"
A : " like in general ? I guess a woman can easily become stronger, faster, and more skilled than your average guy and with more effort they can surpass men in general if they have enough discipline they can lift so much more (specially with their lower body) "
Q : " why are some guys so insecure around stronger women?"
A : " just like some women don't like men who are too muscular guys don't like girls who are too muscular, and even more when gender roles are so defined, but we are in the 21th and some girls take protein powder or even inject roids so … I think we should just accept the fact that anyone can be stronger than you"
sounds like he knows exactly what to say to make you happy
I'd say give him the benefit of the doubt.
Regardless, she's trained him well, you should give her some props for that.
is this place just like a female r9k?
because it seems like both have similar distaste for the opposite gender and dont socialize much
he tricks confused guys into joining his trap discord then say they need to send a picture of themselves in skirts to get into the group and once they do they get blackmailed into taking hrt
>>13950>Females have a higher pain tolerance than men and can train harder/longer
I'm majoring in kinesiology and that is without a doubt untrue, it's quite the opposite.>>13951>Sounds like he knows what to say to keep you happy
Yes. It also sounds like he has compromised his sense of truth to appease you.
>>14006>don't socialize much
I've never gotten that idea around here, a lot of people have boyfriends and seem to be more on the verge of living a comfortable, at least semi-successful life than the people from /r9k/. I could just be biased, though.
It's hard not to when they raid CC simply for the fact we're "roasties" or whatever. I don't think the "hate" the users have here rivals the hate men seem to have for women on other boards. I'm not able to vent about men in any other place, so I assume that a lot of the "hate" is just because most people are discouraged from expressing it elsewhere.
I rarely use fb so I'm not sure how certain things work. I just private messaged someone who responded to a post in a group I made, then I deleted the original post thinking it would help keep the group tidy but I forgot that fb used to do that thing where it would hide messages from people who are not your friends on fb and make them hard to see unless you explicitly change the settings or check your 'other' inbox.
Does fb still do this? Is there a chance my message might be overlooked or will it definitely send them a notification?
It will send a notification. FB is shit.

Have any of you ever met anyone you found on tinder? What's it like?
I dont know about that but Biotin pills will.>>14328
Not Tinder but met a guy off of craigslist(many years ago). He was hot in the pic but in person meh. Also he was suuuuuuper short (and I'm kinda tall-ish).
And before I get called superficial, fuck yes I am. It's natural instinct.
I met a guy from a nearby college for a date. Sucked cause he was really boring and we had no chemistry. I deleted the app a little while after that.
Had one awkward date and uninstalled.
I have had a few dates that didn't go anywhere, but out of that dates i made some friends and it's a fun experience
