/ot/ is a random discussion board. All personal bathroom talk should go to /g/, all media discussion should go to /m/.
Examples of a /g/ thread versus a /ot/ thread.
>plastic surgery advice/experience thread
This is a /g/ thread.
>plastic surgery deniers
This is an /ot/ thread because of the nature of the discourse.

Ntayrt but I was slightly younger than the main cast in the first season when it came out originally and I thought it represented my expirience of being that age in the UK.
Underage drug and alcohol use, sex and partying was very common and pretty much what a lot of highschoolers did on a regular basis around that time, dunno if it's different now.

Yea, I am guessing it was more relatable to europeans in general as it was a uk show. Not to every eurofag, but moreso than to americans, I've watched some youtube videos where they talked about why skins us version failed and it was mostly due to the culture difference. Wrong vibes.

I 100% do not believe in the Alpha Male Beta/Male Shit, see the whole thing is sociological male hierarchical theory and again while I do not believe in it, people get it wrong 99% of the time

see Beta males are second to the Alpha males, beta males are the number 2's, Goose from Top Gun counts as a beta male, Gamma males is a catch all term that applies to normies basically, people who don't stand out in any way, Omega males are basically Incels of the society, they are outcasts for one reason or another and excluded from society

now this theory is bullshit imo but people get it wrong so many times that it hurts, they literally teach this in almost every sociology class

No. 722264

LOL what, I thought it's an internet meme popularized by PUAs, it really is being taught in sociology classes? Crazy.

No. 722265

Anon you're way overthinking it. The point of pomodoro is getting studying done, you're still getting that studying done if you take just a few minutes during the studysession to go to the bathroom and go back to studying after.

I did it a couple times and I got a lot of views, likes and archives. But I think most people scrolling just thought I might have been someone they were already following so I think I only got 1-2 followers out of it. I did it a couple other times with the same results.

I think like others have posted if you dont want to blow money on advertisements make content on other platforms where they boost your posts naturally like reels and tiktok or youtube videos of your process etc.

I've seen quite a few big artists (100k-500k followers) promote their posts, so it seems to be working for them. Been thinking about trying it out of curiosity too, as long as you just invest a few dollars into it.

On a sidenote I tried tik tok for art too and got a lot of views and likes and even followers on there. But people on tiktok like and follow verrry quickly and in the end a following doesn't mean that much because most people browse on their fyp anyway. It's only when your face or whatever you do becomes so recognizeable that you are essentially your own brand that it actually matters. That plus only a small fraction of the followers will come over onto your main platform (instagram or twitter or whatever else) and they tend to be super young whereas my regular ig followers are more around my age so mid-late 20s. I don't like tik tok or doing video content anyway and have been seeing steady growth in my instagram without it so will probably just give on on that platform.

No. 722035

I saw that video, and I'm not even a LT hater, but it made a bit salty just cuz she made some small easilly fixable mistakes that could had been easily noticed and fixed that really peeved me. Like the scissors she made she drew them in a way that looks like it wouldn't actually be able to close all the way, and the positioning of the handle of the sword doesn't look symetrical to the rest of the sword. The chocolate bar didn't look like an actual chocolate bar but I guess I could begrudgingly forgive it with "it's supposed to be cartoony"
Overal to me this video in particular felt like she was really rushing it.
I actually usually don't mind her character art, but if you you mean the thumbnail then ye, the overly detailed sword absolutely does not look good being held by a flat coloured neon girl (aaaand I just noticed her hands lmaaaao)

I sometimes resent the fact that I apparently have a wholesome aura. People have described me as warm, “angelic” and confident just based on my face and general manner, which are nice things but apparently it comes with the qualifier that I have never experienced hardship in my life. I was in a string of abusive relationships that lasted over a decade, lost all my savings multiple times and struggled to afford basic housing to the point I developed extreme anxiety and was sleeping about 3-4 hours a night, throwing up and dealing with chronic pain due to undiagnosed health issues which I had no insurance to address, laying in bed doing nothing for 10+ hrs on the rare occasions I had time off on weekends because I would just fantasize about the sweet release of death. And yet I always have people who know jack all about me say things like, “Teehee I would ask anon for advice but she’s always had it together, I doubt she’s had to struggle for much of anything!” I just fucking boil inside but as usual I hold it together and just say something like, “Well, we all have our problems.” I feel like one day I’m just going to lose it and shove these know-it-alls’ tongues down their throats. I’m not going to lower my standards or force others to be around someone who looks subhuman just because you feel I should be slagging around in ugly sweats with cheap tattoos and visible self harm scars to “prove” I’ve been through shit. But by all means continue crying to everyone about your eye bags and how you’re sooo inconvenienced by having to pick up several extra hours of work during a busy time of the year, shithead.

My favourite meme-subreddit, the only thing reddit is good for tbh, is infested with stupidity… Take a look at this: https://www.reddit.com/r/196/comments/l49yo3/roole/
It's about a bill that wants to prevent biological men from competing with biological women, which is very reasonable since obviously men generally outcompete women in sports. That's the whole reason we have have women's sports and men's sports…. Also the bill says nothing about how that is determined, that it would lead to 'genital inspections' is something created by the very biased source.. But pretty much everyone in the comments just sees what they want to see. Literally calling the guy a pedophile, and crying because they think this is because everyone just hates transwomen… Ughhhh

It's frustrating af for people to just assume they know your life but you're better off without the pity of others, what does it actually get you? Also you're complaining about what's effectively pretty privilege, some people's faces will always say loser but you could start a life somewhere new and your history just gets to be a interesting back story. You're more appealing to companies and other successful people if you look like one of them

Twitter is sjw hellhole, Facebook is controlled by anti-vax moms, Instagram algorithm sucks balls and Tumblr commited sudoku. Youtube and Tik-tok are useless for those that don't have desire to create videos. Deviantart became ghost-town, other art sites seems to not have community aspect. Fanfiction.Net is only a shell of what it used to be, LiveJournal is only a legend now, not sure about Ao3. Reddit and Discord is hard hit or miss with communities and don't have profile aspect to it.

Also seems like most of the bigger sites are super aggressively pushing ads (looking at u Zuckerboy). Honestly, social media is getting seriously tiring and unenjoyable.

Do you think that there's left any non-dead social media/internet community that's worth using? Any hobby centered sites and forums are good too!
