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. It’s a fizzy sugary candy here like pic related, didn’t know it meant something different over there until I ordered rainbow sherbet on an American cruise ship and was given a sorbet/ice cream-type thing. It was good though.
It's still called sherbet not sherbert in the UK. Sherbet lemons, sherbet dip dabs, sherbet fountains, sherbet dust.
It hurts us all but we have to accept it.
Don't worry anon this confused me too at first
Sherbet in the UK is flavoured sugar, sometimes tart and fizzy. Sherbet in Iran, Turkey and neighboring regions is a tasty, often fruity, drink served cold. American Sherbet is mostly the same as sorbet, the Italian desert made from a frozen blend of fruit and sugar, but with the distinctive difference of added cream or milk.

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.
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.>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.
>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. 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. Karl Marx also thought that science was largely driven by and used as capital.>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. 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".

On a whim I tried poking it with a needle felting needle and it TOTALLY worked, tucked the snags and loose threads right back into the upholstery and you can’t tell there was ever an issue. Now my mom will never see how my foster cat has screwed up the couch and I can trim his hind legs before he does it again.

Now I feel bad for people making fun of them.
i hate this so much, this is shit horrors movies are made about. We truly are the most horrifying monsters.
Those fucking fishers need to stop pullying blobfishes out!!! Anyway I hate fishing, consuming fish etc and could live without it whatsoever
Googled this and the horror doesn't end there:
>This isn’t the type of fish fishermen are looking for, so some throw them back in as an attempt to spare their lives. Whether that works and they can survive long enough to get back to the depths after losing so much water pressure is unknown. But it seems unlikely given their misshapen appearance when they reach the surface
So people destroy their appearances then throw them back into the ocean where they most likely rot away since their protective layer is destroyed and they are also far away from the deep waters they live in. Jesus Christ

Small male cuttlefish squid will crossdress to mate with females since they can't fight with bigger males for the right to mate.
File: 1654018648951.png (665.89 KB, 800x600, cuttlefish.png)
The true face of an AGP. I was going to post an actual cuttlefish face but their eyes are very weird and make me uncomfortable
But this does make me wonder what these cuttlefish will do if a male tries to mate with it or if they just have to get out before anyone, other than the squid they're trying to get with, can realize that they are not really female.
Well first, I'm no scientist and I initially learned this on a podcast so what I'm about to say could be wrong. The eggs are not fertilized during to mating process, the mother cuttlefish will store the sperm and choose which one she wants to use (somehow she knows the difference between each males sperm). They apparently prefer the sperm from the crossdressing cuttlefish because they see it as a sign of ingenuity and intelligence. >>1208077

Oooh, thanks for the explanation, that makes a lot more sense.
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.
omg i love you nonnie
i was just reading about bees the other day. So fucking funny that they kick the males out during winter, and yes it bothered me so much that the worker bees in Bee Movie were all male, I won’t ever watch it again. Humans need to take more direction from bugs tbh.

the series is honestly pretty based, every male character plays a minor role and all the important characters are women and none of them ever sexualized, its honestly surprising that a man in the 19th century could write such a book, but his mom was one of OG suffrages, so that likely a big role in his views

the series was really fucking based, like in another one of his books(set in the same Oz universe) Queen Zixi of Ix you have this badass warrior with queen who lives fighting strong men and making them part of her army, and later scolds a girl for wanting to be a boy
I think that I might re-read some of them again, now that you're bringing all of this back. I didn't get to some of his other works surrounding the Oz universe, but have a green hardcover of them that I bought over 15 years ago now. Check out Ruth Plumly Thompson if you get a chance. She expanded heavily on the universe and gave it a very similar energy.

Yes anon, because not wanting to knowingly eat bugs is "prissy" and "sensitive". Of course if you eat stuff from nature it's impossible to 100% prevent bugs but wanting to get rid of them if you can isn't sensitive, it just means you don't want to eat bugs.
Bugs have many health benefits and eating them is good for the environment. In some cultures they are a delicacy (example: mopane worms). And those candies prove my point. They are common snacks for children.
Many are hesitant to try eating bugs. I make crackers using cricket flour and juice pulp. It was tough to convince others to try them, but once they did, they were amazed at the flavor.
(Sorry, I had to repost for anonymity.)
The bug discussion reminded me - EVERY food you eat contains parts of bugs. I work in food production, and am currently pursuing a degree in food chemistry. In bakery school I wrote a thing about pests and bugs in food production and storage, and had to read a book about it. Quite disgusting, but unavoidable.https://www.greenqueen.com.hk/your-chocolate-bar-probably-contains-cockroach-parts-yes-its-true/>Did you know that your average chocolate bar probably contains insect parts? According to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), anything less than 60 insect pieces per 100 grams of chocolate – around two typical bars of store-bought chocolate – is deemed safe for public consumption. https://edition.cnn.com/2019/10/04/health/insect-rodent-filth-in-food-wellness/index.html>Shocking "filth" legally allowed in your food – Did you know there can be 450 insect parts and nine rodent hairs in every 16 oz. box of spaghetti?
There's no way to get rid of all the creatures that might hitch a ride along the food processing chain, but the US Food and Drug Administration has set some food defects standards to keep them to a minimum.

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.

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.
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.>>1340490
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!

Oh shit girls quick, let's all cut off our boobs because then we won't get breast cancer and let's get all of our teeth removed so we won't have to clean them! Actually since there can be buildup in between the labias let's all get surgery to have them removed too.
We really live in a world where people would rather mutilate a baby than learn to put soap and water on their bodies. This is fucking insane.

I know this post is from 4 months ago but it's crazy how few women know this. Cycle tracking is part of how women managed to not constantly have babies for the generations predating condoms and pills! It's all a big scam to push hormones and garbage on us. Ever think about what happens to the estrogen and other crap that passes through your body from those pills? What other effects they have on your body by stopping it's natural processes?
I've been having sex without contraception when I'm not ovulating for over a year regularly and have not gotten pregnant. Women don't need pills, plastic rings up our privates, or fucking implants to not get pregnant. Literally just keep track of your body.

Based female snakes have clitorises.
>This study is the first complete description of the clitoris (hemiclitores) in female snakes. We describe morphological variation in size and shape (n = 9 species, 4 families) that is potentially comparable to the male intromittent organs in squamate reptiles (hemipenes).
>Histology of the hemiclitores in Australian death adders (Acanthophis antarcticus) showed erectile tissue and strands/bundles of nerves, but no spines (as is found in male hemipenes). These histological features suggest the snake hemiclitores have functional significance in mating and definitively show that the hemiclitores are not underdeveloped hemipenes or scent glands, which have been erroneously indicated in other studies.
The general population is unable to do this. Either they are too stupid to follow the simple rules or they're too stupid to count. That's why it only has a failure rate of 2% when used properly, but the failure rate is considered to be 24% when used by the general population.
But yeah, if you're smart enough and have enough self control, it's fantastic and I highly recommend it. I've used a combination of standard days rhythm method and pulling out for two boyfriend and ten years and have had zero pregnancies. Not putting artificial hormones in your body for male pleasure is the best.
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. If you have two rounds with leftover sperm in the urinary tract you can get pregnant, that’s where most “precum” babies actually come from.
If your boyfriend touches himself in the morning. No sex that night.
NTA but I've had an abnormal period for the first 8 years of my sex life and even still I've been able track when I'll have my period. It may seem abnormal, but there's still a cycle. I used to have a 55 day cycle, but as of recently it's about 33 days. There's a couple period trackers out there that can help keep track of it all, including predicting the next one based on when you report the first and last day of your period.>>1445562
Are men also too retarded to not cum inside their partner?
Any time I tell someone I'm not on birth control, they're in shock, and go "You better be ready for that baby", I've heard this warning for years. I'm smart enough not to let that happen, kek.
Nope. I donated eggs and have a couple of children. Nice seethe though.>>1445601

I've never seen any reputable source that said 9% with proper use, but like I said, this method is not for stupid people.
I no longer believe in false humility, I'm pretty great and I love myself. I have taken this thread off course though, so even though I'm saging, I'll offer these fun facts in return:
Pig orgasms can last up to fifteen minutes and the males have a corkscrew penis.
Cyclopia is when there is a faulty division of the symmetry of the face and so children are born with one eye in the middle of their face. They also have a weird little trunk thing above their eye. By the way, it's usually caused by The Sonic Hedgehog gene regulator.
During a dog's heat, while there is usually blood discharge, this is not what we know as a period. The hormonal changes in the dog's body are so strong and sudden, that it causes the capillaries in the vagina to burst, leading to the blood we see.
The thing that gets me is>don't use hormonal bc because it could potentially be harmful and disturbs the natural cycle>goes and donates eggs, a procedure that involves a huge dose of external hormones, and can lead to serious complications
It's either a larp or she's very retarded
I totally forgot about that part, anon.
You're definitely right and I actually doubt she'd be able to donate an egg if she has that big of an issue with her periods.
Even if she could, why would she take such huge amount of hormones just to give eggs to random couples but refuse to use hormonal birth control to make sure she won't need an abortion? She probably is infertile and made that part up.
>>1449568>It's either a larp or she's very retarded
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.
