The outcome depends on how much you’re willing to work. Working with BPD women pretty much exclusively I’ve seen a woman with a prognosis of life in group homes maintain a marriage and a home with zero major fuckups cause she does her therapy and constantly uses her DBT skills. One is now a dentist undergrad with a healthy relationship and a son.
Others have five kids to six dads, are on and off the streets, or are both abusers and victims of abuse with their partners. These ones for whatever reasons didn’t show up, or when they did they treated therapy as a thing you passively do a few hours a week, not actively learning skills for every day use.

You aren’t doomed unless you choose to doom yourself. It’s hard as hell but you aren’t fated to become some screeching bpdchan. You can learn how to replace the disordered aspects of your life with healthy ones. It’s retraining mostly.

This isn't a death sentence anon. You aren't a shitty person just for having a mental illness out of your control. It's your choice what to do with this diagnosis. Either you bite this in the ass right now, realize how fucked up you've been living, reevaluate yourself and how you think, reach out for help. Or you go the other route, and use it as a crutch for the rest of your life and become a crackwhore on the street.
You have control of what you can do with your life. You have control of how you can relearn your behaviors and relationships. You are treatable. But you have to start treating this shit now. Don't wait. This is the first step. And dont listen to LC all the time. LC isn't going to pamper anyone, any mentally ill person will get shit. I hope the best for you.

their skirts are nice but it will probably last you 3 to 4 years instead. it's better quality than fast fashion places but not at the level that goes over 5 years. they also carry styles that seem to go out of fashion depending on the piece.

people resell older modcloth on ebay a lot if you specifically wanted their pieces. there's topvintage, uniquevintage, anthropology, mercari, and etsy would also have similar items. id say look for 'collared dress' and depending on the seller youll find similar styles to that piece. using retro as a descriptor might help too

I feel like I’m about to be called retarded for asking this but here we go. Why do so many fabric softeners look like this?

Almost no information on the front of the bottle other than brand logo and scent, milquetoast pleasant graphics covering most of the real estate and the fact that it is a fabric softener is mentioned in tiny letters or not at all in case of pic related. If you knew nothing about doing laundry you wouldn’t know what these products are, unless you went out of your way to read the small font on the back of the bottle. You don’t see that with house cleaning products for example, quite the opposite actually.

Why are some manufacturers so cryptic about their fucking fabric softeners? Is it their way of tricking people into buying product that is bad for your skin, clothes and the environment?

No. 652476

I don’t ever use these but have wondered the same

No. 652479

Ok, but what’s stopping them from just slapping “fabric softener” in easy to read letters front and center, a’la pic related?

Ok who's going to break the bad news and explain deliberately misleading trademarked words to >>652488

No. 652493

Every time information like this is missing off the packaging it's for a reason, and reason being that you can't, potentially, sue them for disinformation. My guess would be that someone at some point must have proven / won a lawsuit / that these products are not, in fact, softening the fabrics so the name was removed to prevent it from happening in the future and the producer is relying on you remembering that this is what it used to be. There's literally nothing you can gain marketing-wise from not saying what the product is for explicitely so it must be a reason like this.

No. 652495

Please do, actually. I want my hate for fabric softeners and their stupid packaging to be perfectly informed and justified.

I used to wear makeup every day and this is kinda why I stopped. It wasn’t even a lot of makeup, but the stuff I wore improved my appearance a lot. Eye makeup makes a huge difference. The few times I was too tired to do it or running short on time, I felt so hideous compared to my “normal” self. I even got the old “are you getting sick” comments of course. The difference was so stark even though I wasn’t wearing “heavy” makeup, but a little concealer and lined eyes made me feel like a model.

No judgement to those who wear makeup, but even a small amount every day can be pretty fucking damaging when it becomes your “normal” face. It sucks to feel like you need eye pencil to look human.

Off topic but this reminds me of this fabric scent booster that I mistook for lube when I saw it on the target website. I mean it has a proper label but I wouldn’t look at this and think laundry

No. 652575

Say "I'm so sorry for your loss, I can't even imagine how hard it must be for you. If you need someone to talk to, know that I'm always here for you."
Basically the key points to comforting someone are: acknowledge their loss, don't try to relate too hard/bring up your own experiences, focus on them instead and ask them if they want to talk or would prefer some space. If she says she wants to be left alone, respect her decision but also let her know that you'll still be there if she changes her mind.

Is there a cost-effective way to wash clothes that doesn't involve actually washing them with water? I hear washing your clothes less often lets your clothes last longer, but I don't want my clothes to stick or stay stained. I hear some people let their clothes out in the sun to kill the bacteria

No. 652630

I'm sorry to say this but you have been diagnosed with newfag disorder.

No. 652635

I heard about the sunlight thing too, but I doubt it actually kills bacteria. Maybe speeds up the process of drying clothes that were already washed, thus eliminating any potential musty smells that may come from laundry staying wet too long. Short wavelength UV lamps are used to destroy bacterial cells in hospital rooms for example, but these are super strong lamps made specifically for this purpose and the whole room has to be closed off when theyre working, because they’re not safe for people. Short wavelength UV-C rays that come from the sun are mostly blocked off by our ozone layer and don’t reach the earth’s surface, because if they did we’d all have melanoma.
Sometimes you jest have to wash your clothes anon.

No. 652637

Not really sure but you can look into steaming. Kills bacteria, gets rid of smell, loosens stains if you ever do need to wash but could always hand wash a dirtier garment.

No. 652656

Washing your clothes less only makes them last longer if you typically throw conflicting textures of clothes together into one load (ex. jeans and blouses), without laundry bags, and with the wash setting cranked to hyperspeed. In my experience, wearing your clothes for too long without proper washing and drying in direct sunlight are both big contributors to damage as well.

My solution to keeping even middle to low tier quality clothes looking good is to never wear them more than once before washing (twice if skirt or loose pants), never lounging in them when I get home, washing with laundry bags on gentle, and hang drying appropriately for the fabric type (knits, for example, might need extra water pressed out before being draped across a wider surface to dry vs using a hanger and letting the garment stretch out).

I dry my clothes outside in direct sunlight every spring and summer but have never noticed any damage. They don´t last shorter than my winter clothes (that are hang-dried inside). What exactly is sunlight supposed to do to clothes?

No. 652705

Not that anon but when you leave dark or bright coloured clothes in direct sunlight too much the colours can fade and become more washed out. That doesn't affect the durability though. The only other thing I can think of is how clothes can feel a bit stiff after drying outside, but I doubt the sun has much to do with that.
I feel like the only drying method that actively wears clothes out more is tumble drying, especially if it's too hot or rough.

No. 652710

Doesn't seem excessive to me, that's how the first couple months of a relationship are. As long as he seems to initiate and enjoy it as much as you it sounds fine. If you feel like you're always the one to initiate contact or keep the conversation going, you might want to tone it down a bit.
Don't fall into the trap of doing that to make him miss you more though, getting used to playing those kinds of games in a relationship never ends well.

Basically I've polled tens of people I know irl and none of them would let go and forgive / accept their SO cheating on them if they were inebriated. Why is that so?

It's the partner's responsibility to not drink so much that they cheat on their so. "I wasn't fully in control because I was drunk" is no excuse when everyone knows drinking lowers inhibitions and they're fully in control of how much they drink.

No. 652724

If they cared about their SO they wouldn't be drinking if it makes them cheat.

No. 652726

Yes it’s definitely possible if you have low-porosity hair. When cuticles on your individual hairs are smooth and closely packed the dye has a hard time penetrating into your hair shaft (as opposed to high-porosity hair that has its cuticles sticking out). On the plus side, your hair is probably thick, smooth and healthy-looking.
You could try putting dye on your hair when it’s damp, not dry or using an apple cider vinegar rinse before you dye to raise acidity and get your hair cuticles to open up. But honestly, it’s best to visit a hair stylist who knows what they’re doing.

The only type of thing I'd accept the alcohol excuse for is when they didn't notice something was shitty to do. Like being wasted and plopping down on someones lap because there's no free space on the couch. You can do stuff like that and not think anything of it in the moment while in a sober state you'd figure that it can come across as flirty.
When it's an action that's without any doubt romantic or sexual in nature, there's no excuse. You can't make out with someone without understanding that you're cheating, no matter how drunk you are.

thank you both, anons. that's very kind of you. i intend to work very hard at therapy.
i also really appreciate the reassurance that the diagnosis itself doesn't make me shitty. while trying to find more info on bpd i keep finding endless pages full of people who have been hurt by borderline people who are understandably very negative about people with the condition. it's been really hard to read, honestly.

thank you for sharing your experiences, anons. i want to live a normal life and get better too, very very much. well done on working so hard to recover.

sorry for the blog post but the weird thing is that my life isn't actually very chaotic, i'm a phd student and a lecturer. i'm celibate, i don't drink or take drugs. i don't have explosive anger and i have some long-term friendships. i expected to be dx'd with bipolar 2 rather than borderline.
i self-harm though and i have bad depressive episodes where i try to take my own life but i don't threaten anyone with it, i plan it out so nobody i love has to find me. i experience a lot of low self-esteem, paranoia and dissociation.
i'm already working hard to keep my life stable and doing an OK job but i hope that the structured clinical management will make me more resilient for the rest of my life.

from what i can tell, bipolar 2 has hypomania rather than full blown mania. i have (admittedly very rarely) spent time being very irritable/anxious, taking on lots and lots of projects, sleeping very little, and have had neutral spells in-between.
i felt like bipolar 2 described me better but i'm not a mental health professional, and they are. i'm seeing a consultant for a proper working diagnosis tomorrow so we'll see.

My last roommate did this when he ran out of toilet paper (there was still toilet paper in the house in other's bathrooms, just not his own) and it was awful. He smelled like shit so bad. One day I went to check if the mail had been delivered (it hadn't) and he was in the living room just wallowing in his stench. It was so bad I gagged and stood outside on the porch for a moment just to catch my breath before going back inside. When he moved out we had to throw away his stink chair, which sucks because before he ruined it it was the comfiest spot in the house.

The only time they didn't smell like ass was after they spent all day at the pool, which is what I assume the most ass washing they'd get.

Definitely the style on the right. Notice how it creates mass in the back. The mass in the back detracts from the mass in the front (her nose), almost making her nose seem a lot smaller. It makes her look classical and sophisticated.

Long straight hair looks flat and wet, making her face appear massive. The short cut makes her head tiny but face huge. Truly, the only style befitting of her type of face is the huge updo. Makeup and wardrobe were clearly aware of this.

I think the third one looks the best. It's very formal and not for everyday wear though. The short cut makes the lower half of her face more pronounced, and she already has a strong profile. The long hair also looks ok, but it would look better with some volume. It looks kinda flat and grungy (for lack of a better word). Like she hasn't washed her hair in a minute. If that's the look you're going for though, it might be ok.

I have a question for native english speakers (probably specifically from the USA). I've been hearing the term "nimrod" a lot lately, and I kinda like how it sounds so I want to start using it, lol. As far as I understand, it means the same as moron, stupid, idiot, incompetent, etc, right? So, instead of saying I'm "socially retarded" (since people now get offended for the word 'retard'), can I say that I'm a "social nimrod"? Or does that sound weird?
Also does the word nimrod in general sound stupid? lol I don't want to use it if it's going to make me look like an idiot, but as an ESL, I don't really "get" the uh, "vibe" certain words give.

It sounds weird in general because it has an outdated feel to it in general, but the way you’re using it sounds extra unnatural.

I only celebrate with my parents and sister and we spend about 20-30 euro-ish per person. Me and my sister are both still students so more expensive gifts are a bit out of our comfortzone. For us it's mostly about having a litte bit of fun and an enjoyable night and not about serious expensive gift-giving. There aren't any expensive presents I want or they want anyway so it's fine.

Get permabanned. Or download coldturkey and block lolcow, you'd have to get really creative to get around coldturkey if you set it up correctly.

Hepburn is the name of a method used to transcribe Japanese words with our alphabet (there's another method that I can't recall the name of), while romaji is just the term for "our" letters.

No. 653710

Romaji means romanization of Japanese writing in general, Hepburn is a name of a particular system of romanization that was created in 1886. The name “Hepburn” is not used instead of Romaji, it’s just to distinguish which system of romanization you’re using (there’s more than one).

If those tampons are that old you should throw them away. This is only anecdotal, but I've had two friends over the course of my life who used old tampons that were less than two years old and they had mold on the inside of the applicator and all over the cotton. I didn't ask details about how they knew, did they look before they used them? How could they tell if the applicator was covering the actual tampon? I don't know the specifics but I think it was cardboard applicators that became humid at some point. I'd throw them away just to be safe unless they relatively new.

A huge chunk of my commissions early on came first from friends referring their friends to me, and then after I did work for them, they went on to refer others to me as well. If you're reliable - you make satisfactory art, communicate well with the client, and !!!most importantly!!! complete it on time - they will not only tap you again for future work, but will happily recommend you to others without you having to do anything. I have several artist friends, and I can't tell you how annoying it is to see them beg for commissions once a week, then on their private twitters they laugh about how lazy they are or how much they're procrastinating.

Is there a reason why summer clothes are much more colourful than winter clothes?

No. 654209

except for the logical reason (that black conserves heat), i think it's aklos aesthetic. usually it snows in winter and the brightness of snow is already too much (at elast where i live) so i cant imagine the brightness reflecting from clothes too - like with neon colors or white etc

No. 654210

I assume it’s just people dressing to reflect their surroundings, which sounds pagan or even animalistic but for some reason we still do it. All bright colours go in Spring/Summer as everything is in bloom. Autumn/Winter clothes tend to be earthy like the seasons nature

The only practical reason I can think of is that darker clothes are supposed to attract heat better but the colour wouldn’t make a massive difference if you’re wearing thick sweaters and coats

Now you mention it, wearing bright winter clothes would look cool

Also, non-meme home workouts for the glutes, are there any? I find it hard to tell which are instafit workouts and which are wayyy above my league aka bodybuilding enthusiast level. I work out and my thighs and calves are filled out, but my butt isn't because I sit all day. It gives me hip dips and I hate it, I've even changed my diet and lost a lot of weight but they're still there, I'm certain it's the glutes.

Of course it's natural not to want to work out when it's hot af. It does suck but if that's what your local climate is like, it's just part of the game if you want to be consistent. I've taken hot yoga classes before (where they intentionally raise the temp to ~40C/105F) and enjoyed them. Sweat was literally dropping off of me like rainfall but I think because I went into the workout expecting it, it wasn't so bad. Being hot also helps relax the muscles more, which can be a good thing. Can you work out early morning or late night when you'd naturally be taking your shower anyway?

Re: hip dips, they're 100% normal and healthy anon. They mostly have to do with your bone structure and fat distribution. There's not much you can really do to fill them out short of getting a fat transfer. You can kind of build them up, but the muscle along the side of the hips (gluteus medius) is small and even super fit women with big, muscular butts will typically have them if that's how they're built. Women with naturally wider hips are actually more prone to have visible dips. As you can see in pic rel it's mostly your pelvic bone that determines how the area looks.

No. 655072


Let them outside frequently, and give treat when they poop outside. If you catch them pooping inside, immediately let them outside while you clean up, and don't treat. You want to build an association with poop and outside, and pooping outside with a reward. As they get good at it they will alert you when they want out. From there you can start to decrease treat frequency.

Toys and plenty of daily exercise to keep them stimulated. They won't get bored or restless which is usually why they start chewing shit. If they start chewing shit they aren't supposed to, distract them with a chewing toy, play, or exercise. For good measure, you can treat after a few minutes of good play. (You don't want to distract a dog from unwanted behavior with treats, because that rewards unwanted behavior)

Dogs are usually easy to train but some breeds are exceptionally stupid and will take more time to learn basic shit.

I gave a cheater a chance once (he admitted to cheating in one relatiosnhip where he described being stuck in a long dead marriage) Well sure enough he cheated on me too 2 1/2 years later, though his affair was probably at least 6 months long before I found out.

He gave excuses for why his marriage ended with cheating ("I tried to leave her several times already, the bedroom was long dead") But when he cheated on me there was no dead bedroom, no fights, I was younger than him, above him looks wise and I wasn't driving him to it with any bitchy fights etc. I think it just comes down to morals and having an ability to switch them off when it suits you.

I stopped watching anime when I befriended a lot of anime fans both in real life and online. I was about 17 when I fully stopped. The friends I had range from older millennial men who liked fantasy and girls who loved catering to men on social media. I got tired of them and I started making new friends in college who are pretty basic and having nothing really going on in their life, but I love them so much and they are more stable with their identity, so I dropped my old friends with anime as well. New friends taught me how you don't need mental illness to justify any actions so that was pretty good. I matured a lot when I made the switch and I don't really care about my old group, because the only thing that held us together was anime.

Now I wouldn't set my foot there if you made me, many people fell for the meme and moved to the US only to be bogged down by debt, healthcare costs for just popping out a baby, healthcare of dubious quality where you're never sure if the doctor is pushing something to you for profit or not, school shootings, terrible food quality, no daycare, sexism everywhere, medieval medical practices and opioids being prescribed for everything, a broken political system that makes you choose between crazy SJWs who push porn and trannies onto people and racist uncles who kill Mexicans… fuck outta here with that, I'm good.

Does flossing even do anything or is it just a waste of time? I never flossed in my life,and none of my dentists have ever said I've needed to floss (though I am a britfag) but I bought a flosser recently, however, when using it, I don't see it picking up any plaque whatsoever

No. 655788

>never flossed
we see the pattern

No. 655789

If your teeth aren’t tightly packed in you’re probably fine not flossing

No. 655790

I mean, yeah it does. It picks out all of the garbage between your teeth so your teeth don't rot there (and trust me, they can). Maybe you are just really good at brushing and your teeth are spaced far apart so nothing really gets stuck? I just can't believe you wouldn't see any food on your floss, that's really weird.

No. 655792

I guess like other anons said it could depend on the spacing of your teeth. If they're close together I think you should be doing it. I never flossed for the first 18 years of my life until a really good dentist showed me how the enamel between my teeth was thinning faster than normal. It's not something you would personally notice until it's too late. I was able to stop the progression by starting to floss at least a few times a week.
Also, when you don't floss for a long time, the plaque can be so stuck on and hard that you can't remove it with a flosser. Might be why you aren't seeing anything. Just a thought.

No. 655793

You must be a good brusher, I'd say don't floss unless there's a lot of plaque or you might erode your gums enough to start letting things in.
I don't know why people are saying gaps = less need to floss, my teeth are practically watertight and I barely need to floss save for a gappy tooth on my right that gets chunks stuck in it.
Actually, sniff your piece of floss after you use it, if it smells like death even if you can't see anything then you needed to do it.

No. 655797

Only floss the teeth you wanna keep, that's what my dad always tells me. But I think there is a genetic component so you might be lucky enough to be resistant to gum disease- do you get any bleeding when you floss? Are your gums pink or red? I never have any issues with my actual teeth but I'm very prone to gingivitis so I have to floss well, it's the only advice my dentists ever give me.

I just wouldn't risk not flossing either way though. You never know if your teeth/gums will get worse over time and dental issues are the last thing you want.

No. 655800

There’s less need to floss with gappy teeth or very tightly compacted teeth as food doesn’t really get stuck in either. The worst teeth are the type with a mix. My teeth are very close together with gaps near the gum and flossing is a nightmare but I should do it

No. 655804

Get a water flosser. I can't shill them enough, they're so fucking quick and easy to use and recent studies show they're more effective than string floss. With normal floss I struggled with my crowded teeth and the back of my mouth, now I just blast it with water.

Old friends would go on and on about "muh depression" for not wanting to do better in life or hanging out. Obviously I would be affected by this since everyone around me thought they should continue being a NEET, since the anime community promotes that shit I guess. I thought I had mental illness issues but then when I ditched them for new friends they basically uplifted me and helped me convert to a "just do shit" mindset. Overall they halved my anxiety, and I got a better support group. Idk what else to say but if you have specific questions I'll be glad to answer them.

Having friends engrossed in anime circles is pretty difficult, they (obviously) don't have enough reality checks and its good to be friends with "normies" in my experience, they're pretty predictable and stable.

No. 655844


Wtf, flossing is insanely important if you have tight teeth. Even more important than for people with normal spaced teeth. Food particles can get stuck in there even if you don't realize it and it will rot your teeth in those areas. If you don't floss you can develop pockets in your gums where food gets trapped that you can't remove yourself. Floss your teeth you crazy bitches, it takes minutes.

Haven't had a period since August, but am not sexually active at all and have not had any form of sexual contact since early - mid June with my partner who is sterilized (after that, I had 2 periods for July and August, and also took pregnancy tests just in case. All negative). I'm on birth control to control period symptoms when they come, but have never really had issues with it before.. until maybe August. My last August period lasted for about 15 days, really really heavy and consistent with horrible emotional side effects which has never happened to me before. Since then I have not seen my period at all when it's supposed to come. I'm not underweight/overweight (though definitely closer to underweight) but my diet is really poor and lacking in calories+nutrients.
Should I see a doctor about this, or should I just ignore it since honestly I kind of enjoy not having a period? Definitely not pregnant, but worried something may be wrong with me although I have no symptoms besides no sign of a period.

Credit cards are basically like small little loans you take out. You have a card, it has a credit limit (ie the maximum amount of money you can spend), you pay for purchases with it, and then you pay off your card. Credits cards are a necessary evil. They are a good and easy way to build credit, and a terrible and easy way to fuck yourself over.

If you are thinking of getting one, I stress that you remain fearful of it if you aren’t good with money. Spend it like a debit card. None of the money you spend on it to pay for things is technically your own money. I watched cartoons of characters getting fucked over by credit cards (I remember the Proud Family one where I think it comes alive? lol) and still have that fear. I know friends who actually have lots of debt because they maxed out their cards like fucking idiots, hell, my own dad owes $12k on one of his cards. They have high interest rates which will fuck you over in the end. There’s a tactic in the US of how credit card companies will raise the credit limits of poorer borrowers because they know those people will just spend more and owe more in interest (I forget where I found this article but can dig it up if you’d like).

In high school I was taught to use my credit card sparingly. Buy a pack of gum with it once a month to keep it active, then just pay that off. Easy peasy way to build credit. Now I’m more financially responsible and charge many things to my cards because I’m used to it and know how to not be a fuck up with it. If you’re wondering “wow credit cards sound useless, why even use them instead of a debit card?” the answer is

1) They provide an excellent layer of protection. Oh I just shoved my card into a card reader that swipes my info? Fuck off scammer. I have text alerts set up for my credit cards so every time I make a purchase over $0.01, I get an alert. If someone used my card, I’d know it and can call my card’s company and have them cancel the purchase and mail me a new one. If someone spend $10k with my stolen card info, if it’s with my debit card, I’m FUCKED until my bank gives me back that money. With my credit card? The charge was just loan money, my bank will verify and then just knock that shit off my bill.
2) Rewards. Don’t bother with credit cards that don’t offer rewards if you qualify for better ones. Some are cashback, some are travel points, some are whatever else. You get a small, tiny percentage of whatever you spent on purchases given back to you in cashback. Shit adds up over the years. You might be tempted to spend for the sake of rewards though (I was for a little) and that’s just about balancing yourself out (I personally use my card on all my autopay shit then pay with cash for the rest so I still earn rewards, but am not tempted to go whole hog on earning them).
3) It’s a loan, sometimes you might need a loan to afford something like groceries real quick before payday kicks in. Very convenient in the moment, but very dangerous if you aren’t on top of your shit.

I always check my card balance and make sure it is well under what is in my bank account. Sure my credit limit might be ABC amount of money, but if my checkings says XYZ amount, then XYZ is my hard spending limit. I personally like to see my card balance as close to zero as possible too, otherwise it stresses me out, so I use it as sparingly as possible. I pay my card off in full every month (have auto pay set up too, anyone who tells you to carry a balance is fucking dumb) and my life is smooth sailing and credit score is nice and high. I learned about APRs but always forget what they are but the interest rates on my card don’t matter to be because I’m never charged them since I pay in full anyway. Just don’t be a fucking dumbass and you’ll be fine.

You use a credit card so in case of it being scammed you can easily file a claim. And it builds your credit score, credit score influences if you can rent somewhere or take out a loan. You want to pay your rent and food with it and that's it. Use cash for smaller everyday purchases. Those reward points only exist so you use your card for everything, and they can build a profile of you. If you buy things associated with being poor then they mark you as poor and you get shittier service, and it could influence your insurance later on because banks and insurance like to buy each others data. Though in general its good to use non traceable payments because its only time before we have ai gathering data and putting you into a caste system.

I like the idea from becoming a lot more prettier by using makeup a la princess diaries, but I have so much trouble looking at myself objectively, I seriously can't tell what features I have and I don't think I can trust other people's observations since all they say if 'you look fine' and I always think wearing makeup makes me look worse, like, if I look like I'm wearing makeup I think I look worse and idk why, but no-makeup makeup doesn't make me look particularly better so I might as well not wear any at all.

No. 656662

Yes. You could always search a youtube video like "pc build under [your budget]" and most of the time, they show how they build it.
My first time was terrifying because the components were pricey and I was afraid I'd break something but it went fine. After my 3rd build, it became a very familiar process.
Pc building simulator is a cool game that will make you feel more acquainted with the components and the building process. You can torrent the game to try it out.
It's always better to build it yourself or alternatively, research the components and the build and give it to some pc shop to have them build it for you. You will always get a better bang for your buck.

Some bi women end up having a bf who's fine with the woman side dating other women as he finds it hot or less threatening than a real guy. There's even those bi girls who just want a threesome but didnt outright admit that. A lot of the times bigirls end up marrying or running off with a man anyway so it can feel like a waste of time for those of us looking to possibly marry. At this point I think I'd only date lesbian women as well. I want stability in my future.

First of all, law enforcement can pressure commercial DNA oompanies to share your DNA (they already tried to get free access to it in my country). Even if you don't care about yourself (which I don't get like you can't trust governments with any of your shit), you're also basically sharing the dna of your relatives, did they want that? Did you know they only need a small percentage of people's dna to map everyone?
Second, do you trust them to keep your data safe? I remember millions of accounts of MyHeritage were leaked a couple of years ago. Not sure what they'd do with it, but they don't hack for it if they can't exploit your data. Third, they can sell your dna for research and such (and when the research results in something you can bet they'll put medicine on the market at skyhigh prices) so they can profit off of you , again why would you them to profit off of you at no benefit for you?

There's undoubtly more reasons I can't think/know of. I truly find it mindboggling how readily and easily people share their private data with just about anyone.

No. 656730

I’m bi. My first relationship was with a lesbian, we were together for two years. She was constantly insecure, had dreams of me cheating on her, thought that I secretly longed for dick even though that wasn’t even remotely true (I had never had sex with a man and couldn’t even use a dildo at that point because it hurt). The relationship ended when she cheated on me with another girl. This “uwuuuu we want stability that bi women can’t give us” argument is complete bullshit imo.

It’s not good equivalence. Food is immediate necessity for survival, love and sex aren’t. If there would truly be an efficient way to fulfill those needs then of course I don’t care who can get some. Doesn’t mean it’s a god given right. There are still people going hungry even though we have the technology to feed everyone on earth. We have the technology to give everyone a house, doesn’t mean everyone is entitled to one.
Furthermore, what makes you think people will be content with lab-grown love? Love and sex can not be mass produced in the same way that food is. Love and sex have been bought and sold for a very long time and yet people don’t consider bought affection “real” like we consider supermarket pork and wild caught pig to be real food. I don’t think AI waifus will cure humans of our chronic loneliness that is the core drive for interpersonal relationships.
I know it feels fuzzy and warm to believe that people are born with innate claim to contentment, be it in the form of a full stomach or a loving partner. But we aren’t. Everything we have is because we built a society that can afford to spare more people those things and love will always be in short supply and can not be equally distributed.

I would never say people are entitled to sex. Sex is an act that predominately makes children. No one is entitled to procreate. It's a biological urge sure, and it's how we keep the species going as a whole, but it's daft that every human is entitled to sex. Sex involves another party and there needs to be consent, you can't be entitled to another person.

I do agree humans are entitled to love though. That's nurturing, and all kids need nurtured.

I have the same thoughts and for me it also started when I was a kid.

Now that my parents are really getting older, the thought of their death still scares me, but my worries shifted a bit and became more "realistic". I now hope that they will not be in too much pain and can have a peaceful life. My mom has chronic rheumatism and my dad had a heart attack this year, and they both show first signs of becoming old people. I just want them to be as happy and healthy as possible.

I also think I might be depressed but I don't have it in me to actually get a diagnosis and treatment, it isn't hindering my life (yet). This is a weird timeline and it's exacerbated a lot of issues I have. I feel like the awful mood after a good day is to like, compensate the lack of sadness on that day.

Ugh, my ex found my vibrator that I'd bought specifically because we were having dead bedroom problems (his fault) and he flipped shit. Hopefully your husband isn't that insecure, and even if he is, like. Who cares? You deserve to have your sexual needs fulfilled both with and without him. He doesn't need to know if you don't want him to, I guess, but it also really shouldn't be a big deal because…it isn't. You can just tell him "Hey, I bought a vibrator for fun. I want to try it for myself sometime." End of, or however much or little you want to say.

I find it a bit hard to believe he never jacks off, I think everyone does at least sometimes, even in relationships, if not more often in them. Even if he doesn't, again, it doesn't mean that you're not allowed to. He and/or his insecurities don't dictate your self-sexual activity.

No. 657392

I see crazy shit or old memories when I meditate and get my brain into theta state.
Maybe that's it, go search theta brain waves.
Btw you shouldn't drink too much water, like 2 liters like everyone recommends. That's an insane amount of water.
Normal - yes, a lot - no (not healthy).
I mean, if you just get through death of someone close then it's understable.
Still, you should work on that if that makes you feel bad and you think about it a lot. Find anxiety relief methods that work for you, or get into mediattion/mindfulness. If you won't work on it, it can turn into deeper anxiety or even a phobia in the future (or maybe other mental problem).
Also thinking about bad possibilities or hard past events is really bad/traumatic for your brain overall, it makes your stress level higher as if you actually get through bad events all the time (subconscious doesn't see diffrence between reality and your thoughts/dreams).

Got mine removed last year. My bottom wisdom teeth were impacted and started poking out just a little bit when I was in highschool and never gave me any issues until like 10 years later. I thought that I could just go with never getting them taken out, and I think for some people they just never cause any issue or may never fully erupt, but if they do start to erupt, that shit hurts.

It's really up to you whether or not you want to get them taken out, but I recommend it. There's no downside to getting them out, save for the few days post surgery where it just kinda sucks. I never planned to get mine out but was forced to because the pain was unbearable. Even the slightest touch was awful.

This is a very good idea anon, don't over-complicate it. Now that you have money you should make it work for you so that you'll still be able to provide for yourself/any family when you're older. You can hire a stock broker/financial advisor if you don't want to have to think about it at all, but if you just want year over year return and aren't looking to get crazy rich quickly, you simply need to invest in boring, reliable assets like JPM, JNJ, PG and some ETFs like VOO.

I used to think my arms were so hairy because they’re not perfectly smooth, it took me forever to accept they’re pretty much normal or maybe just slightly hairier than average. I fucking hate the beauty standards around female body hair.

Unless it’s really prominent, leave that shit alone. Don’t shave your arms, that sounds awful. The hair will grow back with a blunt edge and look darker. Waxing/sugaring would probably be best if you really want to remove it, but I’m sure it’s really not that bad. You probably think it’s much worse than it is because of advertising and shitty beauty standards.

Also, diplomatic relations seem to me like just a bunch of random parties with a tiny bit of discussion about important matters. It depends on the type of ambassador you have though, some ambassadors are business driven and will try to reach some accord with the people they’re dealing with; other ambassadors will be there just for the parties and random donations they can do just for clout.

my first advice would be to stop smoking in the morning. The earlier you start smoking every day, the earlier you get into smoker mode aka craving the next cigarette all the time. I don’t know about you, but it worked for me very well, reducing it even further to not smoking everyday, and if I do it’s only a few at most and I used to smoke a lot as well.

My name on birth certificate is foreign which I intend on keeping as middle name. I’ve been called a “white” nickname my whole life which I didn’t choose, idk my parents thought it’d help me assimilate as an immigrant child. So most people don’t even know/remember my real name.

I’m not so meditation guru nor an expert in the matters of mind and whatever is all of that big brain stuff.
But I guess the idea is that you’re not stuck thinking about the what if’s so you can be more of an action kind of person.
Like, you’re not supposed to constantly think about what you did 6 months ago in the bakery when you told the cashier “y-you too” while buying some bread, and thus ruining your whole day because of self-inflicted embarrassment.
You also shouldn’t be constantly thinking stuff like “what if I suddenly trip on my feet and fall over someone’s cat and then I get arrested forever?!” because that will only drain you mentally.
The idea of meditating is that you can stop these thoughts so you can focus on what’s important like paying bills, work stuff and the sorts.

details I remember about them: the guy had curly longish hair which is uncommon nowadays. the pair were vague about their relationship but they were suuuper close, and this apparently caused ppl to leave comments saying the girl was uglier than him (no she was not, they were supermodel-tier).

Intimacy is basically being extremely close. Like when someone says "they know intimate details about me". I assume in this sentence they mean this person is close with them emotionally and sexually.

A while ago I was looking into VPNs myself and I saw acorss a comparison sheet (https://thatoneprivacysite.net/) that compares a lot of VPN providers on various different factors. I found out there's much more to it than just picking a paid VPN provider. For example, if the VPN provider is located in a so-called 5, 9 or 14 eyes country, there's concerns there because those countries share digital data with each other. Like, there's a LOT of factors that can potentionally affect how much your privacy really is protected with a certain VPN provider. I found it really daunting to choose one myself.

You shouldn't eat big meals before bed because your stomach has to deal with that while you're asleep and could result in discomfort, I rarely feel that even though i have a sensitive stomach but it can happen if I have had a spicy or a fatty meal. I don't think it's totally abnormal, just try to see what is an appropriate amount of time before bed for you to eat. A little snack around bedtime on the other hand will keep your bloodsugar from dipping and waking you up.

I think it's the fact that technically anyone can be a streamer. Most people don't consider it as prestigious as being on TV or having a "real" career as a political analyst. Obviously, YouTube has gotten huge and popular channels can make a lot of money. Same with Twitch.

Most people don't consider it a "real job" yet because it's all still relatively new, but most of the political talking heads on cable news are woefully uninformed anyway, and having your own channel means you don't have to rely on connections or suck Roger Ailes' dick to get on TV.

Well it's as much of a job as being any other type of entertainer, but it's sort of an unstable life path.

Sure it is. 4chan is made up of a lot of boards, just like this farm, and the regulars of different boards do not necessarily overlap. There are boards for animal images, cosplay, literature, and other special interests, which are way less spergy than the dumping(/b/) or containment(/r9k/) board. It's just that when the media talks about "the 4chanz" it usually means /b/ and /r9k/ or /pol/, which are full of porn, racebaiting and incel-rants.

Absolutely. They’re in most boards in general but the cosplay/Lolita board /cgl/ is known to have the most I think. Unfortunately that means the board gets baited by scrotes/incels a lot. Some retards found the board and never left.
I think women tend to stay away from 4chan because there’s a lot of unhinged creeps and a lot of them like to spam upsetting shit. It can be draining. Makes me appreciate LC more now that I think about it.

I'd say it depends on location and how serious you are about one another. My boyfriend and I became "official" quickly and we both have family members nearby, so we ended up meeting each other's relatives within the first 2 months. Obviously if one of our families lived overseas or something that might not have been financially feasible, nor do I feel it would've really been necessary. I'm definitely of the mind that you are in a relationship with your partner alone, and their family may or may not play much of a role beyond occasional gatherings, although it would seem a bit odd to never meet their relatives—unless I knew their family was terrible/abusive/they'd cut them off for some reason?

It was basically a drug den, there's puke and pee all throughout our hallway, the fridge is horribly repainted and it's because there's a bunch of graffiti on it, our mailbox is the only one that is basically cracked open because crazy crack head broke into it. Our door till recently was broken and they never said why (neighbour told us that it was because the police had to break it down) and now I'm freaking out. I hope it's not roaches. I'm so pissed that our landlord said nothing about it beforehand.

Jesus, I'm going to burn everything, I did further investigating and I am like 99% it's a bedbug. My skin feels itchy right now, and I no longer want to sleep. I'm going to post it regardless. Twas found in the bathroom.

When I'm meditating I can focus my inner voice on my breathing. But my minds eye keeps wandering, replaying old memories. How do I stop that? Do I just try to imagine a black screen or a calming outdoors scene or something? Also, how do I quiet a song stuck in my head when I'm meditating?

How do you become a "chill" person? I'm serious, even though it's stupid to ask.

Looks like a nymph german roach. Look at the legs, the light color on the middle of it's abdomen and the little things sticking out on it's butt. A bedbug doesn't look like that at all.

t. have lived with roaches and bedbugs at one point. don't ask.

>Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

>Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls
>(watch the anime here if you want, but make sure to search up how to first because its confusing)
>Danganronpa V3
there are also novels and other stuff that you can check out, I recommend Danganronpa IF (light novel, AFTER you finish dr1) and Killer Killer (manga).
Also the games are visual novels with no actual choices so unless you want to spend the money, just watch it on youtube or twitch

Can somebody explain genes to me

My mom has chestnut/light golden brown hair. My dad has light ash brown hair. Both of them have hazel eyes.

All of their kids have brown eyes. 3 of us have dark ashy brown hair except my brother who is a ginger(but still has brown eyes).

I thought when people had kids their eyes/hair weren't supposed to be darker than theirs. Also why do me and my 2 siblings have ashy brown hair when my brother is a redhead. Wouldn't it make more sense for us to have reddish brown hair?

I feel like I don't understand genes at all. And yes my dad is my real dad, know because I inherited his ugly nose and other facial features.

ok this is really stupid. I want to learn to play guitar. I went to a music shop and every guitar seemed too big and too heavy for me (and I'm not a tiny person, I'm almost 5'5 and average weight). Am I retarded or is this something I just have to get used to and my body will adapt to this weird feeling of holding a piece of wood in my hands?

Are there organizations or something that will temporarily foster your cat until you can take care of them again? I may have to temporarily move into a place that doesn't allow cats until I can find a more permanent place and I really don't want to give my girl forever.

No. 660181

I'm not sure about anything specifically geared toward your situation, but I would definitely contact no kill shelters and cat fostering groups in your area to see if they might have the capacity to do something like this! It would be a pretty ideal scenario for them I'd think, taking in a cat they know will eventually be adopted back into a home that wants and cares for them.

Are you sitting down to play? Weight shouldn't really be an issue as the vast majority of people don't stand while playing, you sit down like pic rel. If you do need to stand then you'd use a guitar strap which frees up your hands, because it's a lot more difficult to strum/reach the frets if you're focused on holding up the instrument at the same time.

I'm not sure what they're called in English but there's definitely these places where you can bring your pet and they'll take care of it. People usually bring their pets there when they go on vacation though, so I imagine it would get quite expensive after a few weeks.

Can't you ask a family member or a friend to take care of your cat for a while? I'm a catowner myself and I'd 100% take in an extra cat for a while to help out a friend.

No. 660188

You're thinking of a pet boarding facility anon (a lot of vets offer the service as well). It would definitely get expensive for anything over a week or so. Good thought about asking friends or family if they could help, though.

are you trying acoustic or electric? acoustics tend to be alot lighter and easier for complete beginners to learn on, also your fingers are going to have to build up strength and calices, no matter what you play. no matter what you start out on, your body is learning and adapting to something new, if you feel totally lost by weight/ finger strength try buying a ukelele, smaller, cheaper, easy to learn chords for beginners and alot of the technical skills can transfer over to guitar/ bass. if you have no interest there super easy to sell. Good luck anon!

When you wear tights, do you wear them over your underwear, or do you wear the underwear over the tights?

I feel like the "right" way to wear them is over the underwear so that any pussy juice doesn't go directly on my tights. But like, the underwear over the tights feels so fucking secure and I don't fear that my tights will set loose or fall down over the day. Thoughts?

Tights over underwear. It has absolutely never occurred to me to wear tights without or under underwear.

I think the difference is ED sufferers doing them obsessively or taking photos of their body checks.

Buy Cimexa (for bedbugs) and boric acid (for roaches). Look up and see if your landlord will cover bedbug treatment if it is bedbugs (they should I think), but post treatment, just dust shit down with the two powders. Cimexa works by drying the bugs out so they die by dehydration (works on not only bedbugs but also roaches and others), boric acid is good for roaches because it’s like rat poison and when they eat the bodies of the roaches who died from ingesting it (after cleaning themselves), those will die too. My memory is shoddy but I was recommended these by other anons and after researching on my own. I recommend getting bulb dusters so you don’t over apply any powder (they’ll obviously avoid it), and a good mask because inhaling these powders will fuck up your lungs. Read directions carefully. Good luck anon.

t. anon who currently lives in a roach and bedbug infested apartment but can’t fucking do anything about it besides slightly alleviate being eaten alive every night. don’t ask.

So, if these Asian stories that are in a western environment got a live action release, would they
>Have Asian actors playing the western characters speaking the original language of the author?
>Have western actors playing the western characters while speaking the language they’re supposed to be speaking? assuming it’s basically English/French/Italian/Spanish/German

I don't get a period because I've had a nexplanon implant in my arm for three years. At the end of the day, I have a laundry hamper and own multiple pairs of underwear that I wash so regardless of "juice" (lord fucking help me for having said this) it's not like my clothes fester forever.

There were some live action movies of FMA and SNK with japanese actors speaking japanese, and the settings are clearly inspired by western Europe, so there's your answer. Most of these movies are low budget (compared to american blockbusters) so they really cannot afford to hire foreign actors to make it seem more authentic. I guess if some european or american company wanted to turn these mangas into movies, they would choose local actors as well.
