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?

Anonymous 12017

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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?

Anonymous 12175


Anonymous 12180

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?

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?

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.

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.

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.

Anonymous 12445

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.

Can someone explain to a relative newfag how stamina rose → lolcow

Anonymous 12465

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.

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.

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.

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.

Anonymous 12533

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.

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.

>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".

Anonymous 12672

>Is the "incel" phenomenon only restricted to males?
I'm sure there is no female equivalent to the incel community if that's what you mean. Not that women can't end up virgins, but they typically don't lash out that ugly because they couldn't get laid.
>does the word "incel" have any actual purpose, since prostitution is largely common?
Hm? I'm sure they'd rather lose their virginity through a hook up or a relationship if they aren't going for that. I mean, that's good to me. As hateful as they are at least they aren't contributing to the sex industry, seeing as how brutal and disgusting it treats women.
On second thought, they still find other ways to act awful.

Anonymous 12673

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.

What does it mean if a person has the means to move out from their parents house but just… doesn't.

Anonymous 12811

-They're lazy
-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.

Anonymous 12821

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".

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.

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.

Anonymous 12923

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.

Two questions:

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??

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.

>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.

Anonymous 13089

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

Anonymous 13091

Even with mediocre marks? My gpa is just at 70% lol

Anonymous 13094

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…

Anonymous 13114

No, they may have parasites. Why would you want to have any type of fish raw anyway?
