They make the butthole itchy at night, because they come out for fresh air and to party outside the asshole once you're resting.

An important life lesson I have learned is: pay attention to buying stuff online! I mean look very close how an item fits a model like if a top is already really cropped on the model don’t be surprised it’s too short on you. Or shorts look cute on the model but are already on the shorter side. Also onlineshops who post only 1 -2 posts of an item instead giving it lots of attention = they don’t want to highlight how shitty the item looks. It’s also a bad sign when they only show a picture of the item but it’s not worn by a model. It probably doesn’t look good worn so they’re trying to sell it without model. Idk if anyone follows those already and I’m just slow and realized this only recently. My point is basically to have a bit of a critical eye while shopping online!

Yesterday I learned that my paternal aunt and uncle are human traffickers, or at least aiding one (their next door neighbor) in exchange for favors and financial help.

They’d help by escorting young girls to meeting points like hotels and whatnot in Mexico or the US then drive away like it was some typical errand. Sometimes they let the guy feel up on their own daughter.

His wife was sold to him by her parents in exchange for financial help as well about 20+ years ago, they’re separated but sometimes she aides him with the trafficking. Right now she’s just waiting for him to kick the bucket so she can inherit that trafficking money.

Guess that explains my aunt’s constant posts about hailing Mary, angels and Jesus on Facebook then, guilty conscience or washing her hands clean.

Sherbet anons, are we all talking about the same thing lol? My TIL circa 2014 was that it isn’t the same thing in the UK and USA.

That criticism of science is actually a thing and it poses some big, earth moving questions if you ask me.

Here is a simple wiki article (lol): https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criticism_of_science

I'm curious if you all have any thoughts, or know more and want to share.

No. 864501

Excerpts I found interesting:
>Historian Jacques Barzun termed science "a faith as fanatical as any in history" and warned against the use of scientific thought to suppress considerations of meaning as integral to human existence.[4]
>Alan Watts criticized science for operating under a materialist model of the world that he posited is simply a modified version of the Abrahamic worldview, that "the universe is constructed and maintained by a Lawmaker" (commonly identified as God or the Logos). Watts asserts that during the rise of secularism through the 18th to 20th century when scientific philosophers got rid of the notion of a lawmaker they kept the notion of law, and that the idea that the world is a material machine run by law is a presumption just as unscientific as religious doctrines that affirm it is a material machine made and run by a lawmaker.[7]

>Some scientists and philosophers suggest that scientific theories are more or less shaped by the dominant political, economic, or cultural models of the time, even though the scientific community may claim to be exempt from social influences and historical conditions.[41][42] For example, Zoologist Peter Kropotkin thought that the Darwinian theory of evolution overstressed a painful "we must struggle to survive" way of life, which he said was influenced by capitalism and the struggling lifestyles people lived within it.[9][43] Karl Marx also thought that science was largely driven by and used as capital.[44]

>Robert Anton Wilson, Stanley Aronowitz, and Paul Feyerabend all thought that the military-industrial complex, large corporations, and the grants that came from them had an immense influence over the research and even results of scientific experiments.[1][45][46][47] Aronowitz even went as far as to say "It does not matter that the scientific community ritualistically denies its alliance with economic/industrial and military power. The evidence is overwhelming that such is the case. Thus, every major power has a national science policy; the United States Military appropriates billions each year for 'basic' as well as 'applied' research".[47]

No. 864502

you might want to look into epistemology (philosophy of science) if that's interesting to you anon ! Thomas Kuhn's the structure of scientific revolutions about how larger culture influences science is an accessible and fascinating read.

well today I learned that apparently it looked like it was intentionally burned down, and a little while after it burned down the owner of the restaurant went missing mysteriously and then they found his bones a year later. I looked into it a little bit and apparently no one has any idea who did it or why. my mom had even met the guy apparently and said he was really nice.

>After a scientific investigation, however, it was found that Hans' ability had little to do with his capacity for understanding human speech, and instead had everything to do with his ability to read human behavior.

The way I understand it is: the squid will tuck away certain tentacles and make it look like they're holding an egg, and that helps make it look female. The holding egg thing signals to male cuttlefish that he doesn't want to mate, so they avoid him. Then the crossdresser goes up to the female cuttlefish that he wants to mate with and just hangs around until the males get distracted (maybe to go compete with other males or something). Then the crossdresser reveals to the female that he is actually a male and they quickly mate.

Some bee myths I would like to dispell. Bees do not live in a monarch. Their society is closer to communism. Worker bees do not live for their queen, they live for the survival of the colony. Queen bees are not born, but created. An ordinary larvae can be turned into a queen bee with a special diet. Usually one male bee is created and discarded after reproduction, but aside from him, all bees are female. (Not to sperg, but isn't funny how the mainstream always pushes for male bees, male ants, male wasps, and the list goes on as the norm? It is like they cannot accept an all female society to exist without the males being in charge). Worker bees can choose to get rid of the queen bee whenever they choose to. Either she is too old, is defective, or isn't doing her job, worker bees have nearly all the power. Aside from humans and habitat loss, wasps are a huge threat to bees. Wasps steal honey, eat bee larvae, destroy property, and kill bees. The way bees deal with wasps is by huddling all over one until the heat burns the wasp to death. Wasps are another all female society, but are more aggressive than bees. They are basically pirates. The male, or the drone, has no stinger and can only reproduce with the queen. Unlike bees, wasps can remember faces. They can recognize other wasp members this way rather than using some other primal way of recognition. Whenever you kill a wasp, a chemical subtance is released that can notify other wasps in the area that she has been killed. Now remember next time you swat at a wasp. She knows your face bitch. You're next.

And in my worthless, programming n00b opinion, since their software is not free and open source, it makes it harder to spot these little inconsistencies or bugs and fix them. That's why Windows 7 had a thousand fucking updates that fixed bugs from previous patches that fixed other bugs. It's a damn mess.

There are also birds that aren't Corvids or parrots that can talk, such as starlings, vid related.

Actually got lost because someone tourists had built a cairn. What was supposed to be a 2 hour hike became a 5 hour hike one, we were in the highlands and cairns were well spaced out meaning that if it was very foggy out we couldn't see the next cairn clearly which it was when we went out hiking but it wasn't a big deal as you can always see the direction it's going however we had the shittest luck that day and it was windy and raining to boot. See Tourist cairn, go in that direction and get immediately lost as we try to search for the next cairn. We were just lucky that one of us had a GPS however we didn't realize that we were lost until too late.

i learned that circumcision can protect again getting HIV, penile cancer progression, and obviously prevents you from getting phimosis or paraphimosis which is a surgical emergency. i know its super autistic but i have a lot of male weeb acquaintances from attending anime cons and this population tends to be bizarrely obsessed with how circumcision ruined their dick. so to me its fun to provoke a reaction by chiming in with this stuff, and then taking it a step further by arguing that they should be grateful for it. idk maybe its a bit cruel but i cannot stand people comparing it to FGM because FGM gets incredibly extreme and its often done to decrease womens sexual pleasure and make her less of an “whore”, or to make it obvious if shes really a virgin when she gets paired off to a man. not the same!!!!

These have been debunked as mere correlations.
If you remove the "hygiene" aspect, i.e. minimal expectations about basic personal hygiene (obviously too high for the average anime con attendee), then the only tangible difference to FGM is that you can make immense profits from baby foreskins.

Please just be retarded. FGM is done to young girls and young women as a form of punishment and to keep them “virgins for their husbands”. Circumcising is done for health purposes because moids are brain dead and can’t clean themselves so they need to have a piece of their dicks surgically removed. Or its done because of religious purposes, most of which are patriarchal so its their fault through and through.

No. 1340487

Not the anon you replied to, but speaking as a Northern European, the hygiene argument is wild to me. I've seen my share of uncircumcised dicks, and lack of cleanliness has never been a problem. I’m sure it depends on the moid, but I prefer guys who know how to shower I guess. My ex bf had a circumcision as an adult because of phimosis and I would rather not be with a circumcised guy again. I’m sure the results depends on the surgeon and what procedure you go for, but there’s no way it won’t reduce sensitivity to a degree and sex feels so much drier without the foreskin. I agree circumcision is not as severe as FGM and the reasons for doing it are different (like you said, FGM is done to control women’s sexuality), but I don’t think it’s ethical to circumcise children/babies unless for medical reasons, and it will also make PIV sex more painful for the woman later on.

ayrt of course theres exceptions with different areas having different standards of cleanliness. I envy you anon, here in the US or more so the south, it could seen as weird or gay to clean yourself by any means. I’ve met women who even hold the same standards of not going near their genitalia because it isn’t very christian/catholic of them. I’ve had exes where most of their friend groups were filled with moids that scoffed at the idea of even wiping your ass with baby wipes because they were too scared to go near their asshole. American moids are dirty and thats why most of them are cut no matter what.

No. 1340568

The arguments for FGM and MGM boil down to "it's been done to me so it must be done to my next-of-kind", masquerading as "tradition" or "religion".
If you break the cycle in one generation it will stop perpetuating onto the following generations, both for girls and boys.

If genial mutilation would be done for health or hygiene purposes we would also pull out our teeth because dentures are easier to clean and can be kept as white as the smile of an American politician.

Just imagine what would be done if genital skins of little girls could be marketed as well, it could combine sex tourism, pedophilia and general exploitation of the third world into a single business!

A lot of young couples also don’t realize that you shouldn’t have multiple rounds of sex in the same 12 hour period. Sperm can live up to 48 hours after a man cums in his urinary tract.

It's my biggest secret that I've been having sex for the past 12 years with only occasional condom use and no hormonal birth control. I know most women would judge me for this but I have a set of circumstances that works for me. My period is very regular so I know my cycle well, my boyfriend has a low libido so he doesn't masturbate which means sperm won't be present in his precum and he is done after one round (much to my dismay sometimes kek), and he always pulls out after I orgasm because we both don't want kids.

I think it's a larp, they use the exact same typing style and insults, same exact paranoia about how everything "sells their information", and then just calls women "too stupid" for everything kek. They seethed about SIDS in the baby thread when women were praising the owlet because it "sold their information", then a preemie mother said she liked it because it helps ease anxiety about SIDS and keeps track of heart rate + oxygen in case of emergencies and doesn't give a fuck about "selling information" then she proceeded to call women who have had babies with SIDS too stupid to follow safe sleeping and when someone else pointed out that SIDS have happened out of people's control she acted dumb as if she doesn't understand how monitoring heart rate and oxygen and knowing how to react during an emergency can help save a babies life.

I'm in America and I've never had a problem using my PO box for anything I want, including receiving packages for my business that don't have my name on it.

No. 1538194

In America, California specifically. My parents names are registered on the po box and my brother is able to receive his mail/packages with no problems at all. He uses his real name. I used an alias for privacy reasons and thought it wouldn't matter as long as it goes to the right address but turns out they will automatically reject and return it since the alias doesn't match or have my family's last name on it. Guess they don't want to deal with lost mail/packages and we've been using a po box for years now. Wished the post office could've at least contact the po box user to let them know about unknown mail/packages and whether to hold on or return it but they don't have that option. Calling them is useless too because of an automated voice keeping you from contacting a real person for customer service.

PO Boxes aren’t assigned for life. They’re rented temporarily. (Sure there are situations where a person never moves or never stops paying for the PO Box and they keep it their whole life but that’s their choice.) When you are a clerk at a post office you only want to put the mail for the current people it in the box. There is always a bunch of junk mail or even good mail for previous names that rented that box that come through and it’s part of your job as a clerk to weed them out so your customer doesn’t have a box full of shit that isn’t theirs (usually you try to forward it or return to sender because as far as you know as a mail clerk that name doesn’t get mail at this box). That sort of thing. If a clerk knows that a customer wants to receive mail for a name they will put it in the box, but the PO Box owner (in this case your parents) has to say that they want it. Very easy fix. You don’t need a different box for every name. The clerk probably has a shitty little handwritten label with something like ”smith family only!” written on it on their end to help them remember what name is ok to put in that box. Your parent just need to say “add the name Stacey Sperg to our box please” or whatever the fuck your alias is lol and you’ll get your mail

I was looking at a resting nurse shark at an aquarium and asked if this species used ram ventilation like other sharks, and was told that all sharks possess ram ventilation, however, they are able to rest due to them possessing spiracles along the body that can directly take in oxygen while they rest or feed. Very interesting. Pic related; the spiracles are just visible as tiny light spots along the shark's body.

There are octopus cities called Octopolis and Octolantis. Sorry for the incoming long post, I find this interesting.

>Octopolis and Octlantis are two separate non-human underwater settlements built by the gloomy octopuses in Jervis Bay, east Australia. The first settlement, named Octopolis by biologists, was found in 2009. The individual structures in Octopolis consist of burrows around a piece of scrap metal. In 2016, a second settlement was found, named Octlantis, observed over eight days to have ten to fifteen octopuses.[2] Instead of burrows, Octlantis has dens and is built with seashells.

>Marine biologists once thought they inhabited the subtropical waters off eastern Australia and northern New Zealand in solitude, meeting only to mate, once a year. But now there’s proof these cephalopods sometimes hang out in small cities. 15 gloomy octopuses congregating, communicating, dwelling together, and even evicting each other from dens at a site the scientists named “Octlantis.

>The discovery was a surprise, Scheel told Quartz. “These behaviors are the product of natural selection, and may be remarkably similar to vertebrate complex social behavior. This suggests that when the right conditions occur, evolution may produce very similar outcomes in diverse groups of organisms.”

At least one other gloomy octopus site was found recently, though; it was discovered in 2009, not far away in Jervis Bay, and named Octopolis. At that time it was considered a total anomaly. Researchers believed that the cephalopods gathered there because an unidentifiable human object happened to have formed a central point that the cephalopods surrounded with dens. The unknown artifact was a single object about 30 cm long, heavily encrusted, possibly made of metal. The site has been observed for seven years now, and at any given time, there are somewhere between two and 16 octopuses there. In Octlantis, however, there is no similarly mystifying human object to explain the gloomy octopus congregation.

>The likely explanation, said Stephanie Chancellor, is that in both Octopolis and Octlantis there were several seafloor rock outcroppings dotting otherwise flat and featureless areas. “In addition to the rock outcroppings, octopuses who had been inhabiting the area had built up piles of shells left over from creatures they ate, most notably clams and scallops. These shell piles, or middens, were further sculpted to create dens, making these octopuses true environmental engineers,” she said.

>Like any urban environment, Otocopolis and Octlantis can be tough places to live. Citizens must be scrappy. The company and food are abundant but all the activity in the cities also attracts predators, including sharks. There's also a lot of aggression apparently, although the researchers can’t yet explain why. Gloomy octopus males seem to spend a great deal of time chasing each other out of dens. Scheel is hesitant to speculate about what exactly this behavior means. “We are still studying this,” he said.

TIL that if you are intermittently peeing straight blood with no pain or burning, it should be assumed to be bladder cancer until proven otherwise. Don't let the doctors put you off assuming it's a UTI, if you peed a bowl full of blood and there was no pain, especially if it had happened more than once, insist with your whole chest that you want a cystoscopy. Because it's so rare in anyone that isn't a middle aged man, they will blow you off for years and you might die.

So I was really confused when hearing some of my colleague's discussion.

Until she told me it was an elevator system that doesn't stop and has cabins that move along the building floor in a clockwork motion thanks to some cogs and stuff. So basically you have to jump into one of the cabins to go up or down while the cabin is moving on the floor you're at.
But you can't stay in the cabin at the very top or bottom floor because this is where they get moved into the opposite direction thanks to the cogs, so you could get crushed by the machinery and stuff if you did it.

In any case, wild fucking stuff.

TIL the reason why so much Korean food always has either mozzarella or American cheese is because Koreans dislike the pungent flavors of most cheese, so they prefer more mild flavors. The sweetness of American cheese also probably helps because their food is so spicy. I've actually heard that it's hard to find completely savory foods in Korean, even breads are usually sweet.

I mean maybe it's depending on where the elevator is built in Germany if before the fall of the wall or not, and on which side of the wall.
I'm in Eastern Germany, there used to be a buncha infrastructure shit here like the highway exits being at a 90 degrees angle (so much so that even with the infrastructure correction it still sucks to drive out of the highway here), so it would not surprise me if you stayed in an elevator from here, that the machinery behind the lift would be dangerous.

Not even sure if this is the correct thread but whatever, I just had an ephiphany about troons!

I just realised, that despite claiming to be "so feminine" and "totes women", there are a whole bunch of womanly hobbies that MTF troons never seem to engage in. For example, they never:

-participate in "snark" (dedicated influencer/celeb gossip) subreddits
-watch either reality tv (real housewives, kuwtk, etc), soap operas & telenovelas (days of our lives, coronation street, etc) or teen-girl shows (riverdale, gossip girl, zoey 101, etc)
-self harm by cutting themselves
-use pinterest to make aesthetic moodboards
-play online games like neopets, stardoll, dolldivine/dress up games
-look at thinspo out of aspiration, jealousy, comparison or any reason other than coom
-develop an eating disorder in general, and participate in the ed/recovery communities
-become a munchie and participate in the online "illness community"
-fangirl over boybands/male youtubers (how many mtfs were fans of 1D/JB as teenagers, or are fans of Dream/Corpse Husband/Sykkuno, etc today?)
-participate in fandoms in general (especially "shipping")
-become f*joshis
-participate in astrology, manifestation, or "affirmations"
-create aesthetic study/positivity/work blogs and IG pages
-read young adult (or romance/slice of life) fiction
-draw vent art, have a vent blog, or a diary
-the whole "I <3 fall, pumpkin spice latte" aesthetic thing

to name a few examples.

Not every woman does, or has done, the things listed above, but all of those are done almost entirely, overwhelmingly, by women. I can count on one hand the amount of men I've seen doing any of these, and ironically most of the "men" I see doing those things (at least online) are FTM. I genuinely have never seen a troon, especially an AGP troon, participating in any of these. Holy shit my mind is blown, trans"women" really aren't women, they aren't even girly. I feel enlightened.

>become a munchie and participate in the online "illness community"

>participate in fandoms in general (especially "shipping")

Lots of things about medieval European society, but especially how it seems like they would've been quite inquisitive and hospitable towards strangers. They're often portrayed as super irrational, closed-minded, and paranoid towards anything unfamiliar so it was interesting to hear how they were actually often very interested in socializing with new people and learning about the world.
This video also says that medieval people predate a lot of hateful racial beliefs so they wouldn't be hostile to foreign-looking people just for their ethnicity, they cared more about people's professions and beliefs. And the whole idea of "white people" and "not white people" as categories is more modern and wasn't always a concept people had a strong identification with.
Overall really interesting to me because I always heard about medieval times as "they were unhinged and stupid, the end" and this is the first time I really felt like I had a sense of how it worked as a complex human society, however different it might've been. Like yeah there was messed up stuff but they were still people who would have had similarities to me, not some totally different type of rabid creature.

There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding the people of that time but yeah, racism as we know it didn't yet exist.
