Anyway, what's the safest way to store a large amount of data for a long period of time? Hard drives? USBs? Cloud storage? Or something else? I know for a fact external hard drives can randomly die on you so that's why I'm concerned about using one. I haven't had it happen to me yet but I heard USBs die on you eventually too.

No. 711902

Well that's doable! I can order some and maybe some brushes, haven't painted anything since high school and that was a long ass time ago, thanks

No. 711906

Tape drives. Unironically.

Actually answering your question, hard drives can be configured to work in a RAID array. You have multiple hard drives that work together to store the same data. If one drive dies, you can swap it out with a new one with no data loss. If you're willing to spend the money, look into picking up a low end NAS (Synology is great for this) with like 4 WD Red HDDs and you're pretty much set for life. And even if a drive fails, you can just swap it out.

No. 712062

Doubtful, eyebrows are still a relatively niche part of make up. People criticise them online because they’re petty. That, and the fact it’s more common to see them done online where the instahoe drag make up look is standard. I’d say most women who wear make up don’t do their brows (though it’s more popular with younger women).

Also if they are judging you, it’s because you’re not wearing make up at all rather than specifically the brows.

This is the kind of thing where professionals should be involved. Families where abuse happens over several generations can have some fucked up views or coping mechanisms. They can also massively downplay the effects of it because they're so used to living with it. See a professional before you open up about it to anyone else. Even well meaning family members can deal with these issues in a more damaging way.

I'm about to sound really stupid, but here goes: I've been growing oyster mushrooms and needed a new spray bottle for watering them, so I took a bottle of recently depleted perfumed insect repellent, washed it out as thoroughly as I could, and filled it with water. I thought I'd cleaned the pump well enough, but when I sprayed my mushrooms once (stupid not to test before, I know), I could still smell some residual fragrance. Ofc I didn't continue with that spray bottle after that. My question is, will this badly affect the mushrooms in any way? Whether that be in growth, taste, or even edibility? If it helps, the ingredients of the repellent were alcohol, Ethyl butylacetylaminopropionate, Hexyl cinnamaldehyde, citronella, d-limonene, geraniol. Please help this first time mushroom grower out.

So what do people without arachnophobia think of spiders? Like if you saw a house spider the size of your palm just crawling along your desk, how would you react? And if it then scuttled away from there into your skirting board? Right next to your bed? Possibly to then crawl over your face at night?

Like how would you feel about that? I'm usually pretty empathetic but I literally can't imagine what it's like to not be freaked out by spiders. I'm also trying to get my mind off spiders so I don't dream of them again, but it's hard.

I feel like most of asexuals on the internet are just kids that feel pressured to becoming sexually active by media or their peers when they're not ready yet. Especially since a lot of them are sperging about other people discussing their relationships or sexual life, or media portraying sex, it just comes across immature and self-absorbed, which teens usually are.

No. 712198

I would think "oh fuck, gross!" and shoo it away. I think one of the differences between arachnophobics and non is that you've already jumped to thinking it's going to crawl into your bed and over your face, and I just think it's going to run away to some corner of the house where the big fleshy human won't find and attack it.

If it was the size of my palm, I’d be pretty concerned about finding it and getting it outside because I’d be freaked out about it settling in my room. There have been other times where I found where big, non-venomous spiders settled on the awning of my porch at two separate apartments, and I left and named them both. I think spiders are really cool, I just don’t know enough about them off the top of my head and would worry a thicc one is venomous bc we have brown recluses and wolf spiders where I am.

Thanks, I feel like all portrayals of spider reactions is from either arachnophobics or spider enthusiasts, know what I mean? That sounds like a healthy reaction, it seems similar to my reactions when I see a silverfish or that one time I crushed a massive roach when closing a door behind me (like the sound of the crunch alerted me, I want to say the size of my thumb?). But I don't think they'll invade me in some way. It's just a bit gross they're there.

Also I guess I took a very northern european view of things, the only spider the size of my palm where I live is the giant house spider, which isn't venomous (but those horny males wander houses looking for a female around autumn, so you're likely to encounter them). I guess it's another thing completely if they actually might cause you harm.

It's funny because asexuality doesnt even mean that anymore. Now aseuxal people can be horny, have fetishes, enjoy having sex, enjoy mastrubation, and they would still be valid. Hell, there are "grey asexuals" who SOMETIMES have sexual attraction and they're still ace!

These people define sexual attraction as, and I quote "looking at someone and thinking, in these words "I want to have sex with them". Which is something no one actually thinks. By that logic, celibates and people with low self esteem are automatically asexual.

But one night a spider centipede (a centipede, not a spider) was sitting on my door as I was returning from the toilet and I completely froze up. I could barely make myself move past the door and close the door to keep it out of the room, even though it's not even venomous or aggressive in any way.

Is being sexually attracted to women enough to make someone bi? I know I sound stupid as fuck but please bear with me. I used to think I was a lesbian (read: hope, because ew men icky), realized I did like men, called myself bi for a bit, then dropped the label because I really can't see myself being in a relationship with another woman.

The reason I thought I was a lesbian at all was because I was never strongly attracted to men physically; I find my bf attractive because I love him, for example. I can't name any male celebrities I think are sexy, but I can certainly point out attractive women.

I probably sound retarded but girls are just so pleasing to look at it, it seems normal to find them sexy. Then I remember that gay men exist and they probably don't see it that way lmao, that way being that women are sexy but just not dating material. Idk, it doesn't really matter in the end, it's just what I've been thinking about lately.

You could argue that if you think someone looks hot, you do find them fuckable but I can look at a statue of a man and go "statue hot" without wanting to fuck the statue or even the person it was modeled after.

I don't have sexual fantasies often tbh but when I do it is always me having sex with a woman, this is embarrassing but in particular they're of a friend I used to have (well, still kind of have I guess. We just kinda grew apart but I could hit her up if I wanted to.) I used to think I liked her romantically as I got very jealous when she got a bf but I could have misinterpreted it, I was weird and confused back then. I did have all the crush signs that made me feel like a creep, like being instantly hostile towards the bf when he was probably a decent guy, liking how she smelled and getting a little dizzy after borrowing her sweater for a day, wanting to hug her all the time, I also had a sexual dream about her once. I feel silly typing this out but idk, I think I could have just been really attached to/protective of her as a friend. When I think about her now I cannot image us dating or anything.

I'm actually a femme exclusively attracted to butch dykes and was subconsciously choosing men who looked like ivan coyote lmao.

If I'm asking myself if I've been sexually abused my answer is a plain no, would it be different I had repressed memories?

No. 712391

I also have a question about sexual abuse, i got molested a lot by my brother and a cousin, but like never got raped so it wasn’t as bad as how other anons had it.
How do I stop being bitter about it and how do I repress or forget about it? I usually Can live normally but I can’t help but feel paranoid at times or get annoyed just by looking at them having normal lives without feeling self-conscious about how they perceive themselves and such.

Have you had therapy like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or Dialetical Behavioural Therapy? They can help change the patterns of thoughts and behaviours into more positive coping mechanisms. You need an outlet for the stress such as someone to talk to or a journal to write in.

Then there’s the question of, have/will you report then, confront them, tell your parents or sue. That does give some people closure but it can also be extremely difficult

No. 712411

>but like never got raped so it wasn’t as bad as how other anons had it.
I can't answer your question because I've personally never been through it but, please don't compare your assault to other peoples assault. No ones experience with being sexually assaulted is worse or better than anyone elses experience. Sexual assault is not a competition of which victim is more traumatized. Don't downplay what you went through and don't let anyone try to tell you it's not "as bad".

No. 712417

Psychfag here. Repressed trauma is a myth. Countless studies have proven that we are more likely to viscerally remember traumatic events, or really any event that evoked very positive or negative emotions in us. People may have developed techniques for avoiding remembering a traumatic event, but that's more of a coping mechanism, not some kind of function of memory.

If you ask yourself if you've been sexually abused and can't recall any specific instances of such, you either weren't, or there may have been events that perhaps you need to educated yourself about and ask whether or not they may constitute sexual abuse.

At the end of the day, it's really better to seek professional help for these things. People who feel they have been abused, but can't remember specific instances usually have actually been abused, but it was a type of subtle, chronic abuse (ie: neglect) that was normalized because it took place so early in the person's life and continued for a long time. This is the difference between complex trauma and PTSD-type trauma.

Anons with depression, have any of you been able to overcome it? I can’t seem to do anything, I just always feel a sense of impending doom, I just want to know if it could get better someday.

No. 712425

I haven't completely overcome my depression, but I know that not having so many stressful things happening in my life has certainly improved it. I was at my most depressed from 2014-2019 because pretty much all I did was work and live pay check to pay check. I lived in an expensive city that I had little option of leaving. I was also a full-time student on top of working two jobs. I stopped doing my hobbies because I was literally so exhausted that all I could find it within me to do during my downtime was lay in bed and watch Netflix. Was also in an abusive relationship for some of those years.

Within the past year, I had the opportunity to move somewhere nicer and cheaper, dropped a number of toxic people and graduated school. Now I have more time to get back into the things I used to really enjoy. I still have pretty bad anxiety unfortunately, but depression is a pretty minor issue for me these days.

I think that some people are more prone to depression than others, but changing your environment really does wonders if you're able to.

No. 712426

I did with medication a few years ago, then it came back again so I'm medicating again. I try to remind myself that it's possible to feel better because I did at one point, but it feels different now, like I'm more jaded than I was before.

No. 712429

It’s been 10 years and no, despite attempting to in many different ways. Now I’m focusing on learning to live with it. I do have periods of feeling relatively okay - things can feel better at times. I take what I can get and have just accepted depression will most likely always be part of my life. I hope that doesn’t sound depressing, it’s a neutral feeling. It won’t always feel so bad.

No. 712430

Yes. It took dropping heartbreakingly toxic people, medication (still on), and therapy (not currently doing, but was great at the time), and I feel better generally speaking and more capable of handling when things are bad. It never goes away for some people, it’s an illness, but it becomes very manageable.

I'm from Canada and recently got hired to work for a company in the US. I'm going to be moving there on a work visa (sponsored by my company) and will be living there full-time for the foreseeable future.

I have a boyfriend who has a permanent remote work position for a Canadian company (meaning he can work pretty much anywhere, he's not tied to a specific office). I obviously want him to come with me, but with how things are, it looks like he'll only be able to stay for 6 months at a time and then have come back to Canada for 6 months after his visa expires. While his company has a presence in the US, they said they can't get him a work visa because they don't have any operations in the state I'm moving to (I found that REALLY odd, especially considering that they have an office in the state I'm moving to, which makes things even more confusing).

Have any anons here been in a similar situation before? At this point I'm planning to get my dual citizenship (once eligible) and then marry him so he can live with me permanently. But I'm not sure if I have any other options here. Would appreciate any insight into this! It's very confusing!

No. 712438

Have your surroundings changed much in 10 years? Have you seen a therapist for depression, preferably someone who focuses on you as a whole? I don't mean to be judgmental, but I find that people who treat depression as though it's a chronic illness are typically not aware of the reasons why they went on to develop depression in the first place, which makes it harder to recover from. It's definitely not just some illness like diabetes that you "have" to live with, although it is definitely not easy for everyone to overcome.

No. 712456

I’ve been receiving help since childhood after being removed from my abusive family (probably the biggest cause of the depression). Help was sporadic at first but became consistent 10 years ago. I’ve been through counselling, CBT, individual and group psychotherapy. Every time medication is discussed, the psychiatrist always struggles to find something I haven’t already tried. I’ve cut off toxic people, moved away, been successful in academics and my career, done cool things and made good friends. I have a decent life now, but can’t shake off the depression despite my efforts. There are physical differences in the brains of people who suffered severe childhood abuse/neglect, which I think helps to explain why I’m fucked up.

It can be normal for the first few times, equally you might never bleed. Depends on you as an individual. I bled regularly into the tens of times I had sex, looked it up and found something about micro-tears? I had vaginismus though which made penetration more difficult, so that’s probably why. More foreplay and lube is always worth trying. If you’re also feeling tense/nervous that’s likely having an effect.

No. 713472

The hymen doesn't tear if you stretch it over time, either through unrelated exercise or deliberate penetration, and you're turned on enough
I believed the lie that a hymen is meant to be torn and you're just meant to keep going through the pain and now I'm mad as hell about it
If you don't want to tear/bleed during your first piv you should get to know your own body first, experiment with your own fingers etc. People always say that for it not to hurt you just need to relax, but it's not that simple. We should tell girls to learn how to relax when penetrating themselves alone first

I'm not convinced it makes a noticeable difference on its own but rather it is the heat generated that gradually degrades a Li-ion battery. Maybe take it off power or take a break when it gets hot?

The effect that discharging the battery has on lifespan is complicated and I reckon not worth stressing about.

Eg laptops I've used daily had their batteries degrade about the same whether they were the desk one on power full time or the one I ran on battery a lot.

The only battery I got to keep pristine beyond 2 years was one I kept at 40% charge in the fridge in clingwrap but laptops these days don't let you hotswap the battery like the old IBMs did so that's just some autism, k thanks bye.

NTA but a woman is just the female of the human species, ie. the sex that produces the egg. It doesn't stop to be true just because some decide to not have children, this is the main difference for every biological difference between the two sexes. And just because some women are infertile or some people end up with extra chromosomes, doesn't really change it. The social ('gender') builds on the biological, not vice versa.

I looove butter cookies, they're my go-to Christmas cookie for gifts. So versatile. They're amazing dipped in chocolate, or mixed with grounded almonds. I use the dough for linzers as well (much better than shortbread, imo). PROTIP for sharp edges: replace 1/2cup (~60g) of flour with cornstarch.

I sometimes make "healthy" cookies with anything in my kitchen. Basic brown sugar cookie dough with rolled oats, ground flax seed, nut butter, maple syrup, dried raisins/cranberries, chocolate chips, nuts.
350F for 10mins.

My super ultra lazy cookie is pie crust cinnamon spirals. Leftover pie dough, rolled up with cinnamon/brown sugar (butter optional) and cut. Pinch the ends into the dough so they don't unravel. 425F for 15mins.

A really nice thing about buddhism it's that there aren't very strict rules, Buddha himself encouraged people to not blindly trust in his word and approach the buddhist path as they need.
The teachings are simple in theory, they are about making no harm and avoiding suffering by minimizing our desires (that's the hard thing, in this time and age)

I hear Pittsburgh is terrible to drive in, but that’s maybe just because I live near tbere. I hate the park way though, which is a bunch of horrible over passes all stacked on top of each other like a death web spiral of concrete, it’s terrifying, and there’s also a ton of bridges.

People soften up all the time! But it has to happen gradually from an honest intention to become empathetic to others, not just wanting to appear nicer.
I think just pausing for a second to try to put yourself in other people's shoes is really helpful as well as asking people to explain what they mean etc. Try to think more about people's motivations, sometimes people are just stupid assholes but other times we can react with our own bias very quickly and completely misunderstand them
Books, movies and pocasts that show case studies of characters and people existing outside of our own experiences might help too

No. 714012

this is probably a contested topic but can you delude yourself into liking men (temporarily)? I basically forced myself to look at moid porn that disgusted me so I could feel normal. It's not normal but I had a weird thing "girls watch porn too!!" I wish I never was so stupid as a teen. Anyway, I stopped because 90% disgusted me and half the time I gave up feeling icky. (I did manage enough times with careful selection, so maybe I'm overthinking it.) Fast forward to now, scrolling /g/ and the femdom gifs. I know many anons expressed disgust but even the guys o-facing… they're in pleasure and "hot", that should be attractive right… I jumped out of my skin. Men really are gross to me.
Related, how come I get this urge to impress every man even though I don't want them? It's almost like ocd intrusive thoughts, a scrote is present, he could be old and ugly but I become hyper aware and nervous. As a kid I had this need to have a crush, so I would pick guys I even knew were ugly, just to have someone to fixate on. Wtf is this? The one I tried to have sex with, he could tell I was uncomfortable. We couldn't go all the way. I even felt nothing while kissing after the first couple times, I did get excited but those were clandestine. Social anxiety? fear of intimacy? lesbian? or low sex drive? I feel broken

I agree tbh… It's not stupid advice. That is basically my method but every now and then I think myself a storm and try to figure out why I'm like this. It makes more sense to just live life and the answer will present itself. Maybe I will find a moid I actually like.
I guess I'm thinking so hard because I'm afraid I'll repeat it again… It's like I was 100% aware I wasn't attracted, but still thought I had a crush. Maybe I did somehow. Since I wasn't attracted to those guys then I don't know which I am, I don't know how to tell.

the easiest way to make friends is to find people that share a hobby or interest. You can do this online too, just find a relevant community or platform and be active, ask other people about the hobby/interest etc. Works the same in person, obviously.

When and why did lolcow.farm become so gender crit-y? It's so weird because apparently it wasnt always like this, so what happened. (I started lurking in 2018) Apparently at first the fakeboi thread was just for 'transtrenders'(and an mtf thread didnt exist) but now, the MtF thread is the most popular snow thread by far.

In new here so I don’t know, but I love having this space to share with other chicks. Having guys here be fine as long as they also share the same catty bitchy nature, but I would want them to be in the minority. I say that because on 4chan I’m always in the minority and get called out for being female, I’m actually getting harassed on there right now because I mentioned that a troon was harassing me, then saying “you shouldn’t have ever mentioned you were a girl on the internet and you deserve to suffer and die” like the troon couldn’t tell I was a girl by my fucking name. Believe it or not everyone needs a space to mingle with everyone and everyone also needs a space to mingle with people who share the same specific experiences and interests as them. This is my specific place.
It’s also super refreshing to hear a lot of topics being discussed that I would never see on 4chan. This may be the shittiest cattiest version of womanhood but it exists.

It's as subjective as can be. Hell, I consider choking to be pretty normie. Basically any kink that is described in the mainstream (BDSM, daddy kink, etc.) To be "normal" while anything from deviantart (feet, piss,giants, transformation, poop, etc) to be "degenerate"

Basically, if people call it kink, its "normal", and if people call it fetish, it is "abnormal"

Depends on your environment, I think normies are likelier to be "transphobic" once they see how gross troons are. I've already managed to peaktrans my brother, I think a friend is on the verge of peaking, and a coworker would be a good candidate as well, so I would not be too worried (and my country hasn't been infected by the tranny craze yet). If you're in a very liberal environment you risk excommunication, that's for sure.

No. 714550

Not that it really matters, but that's not what "post nut clarity" is at all. Post nut clarity is just when you're so horny all you can think about is being horny, but then once you orgasm you think a lot more clearly, doesn't really have anything to do with your partner. I also don't think it's a male thing cause I've experienced it and I've heard of other women experiencing it as well

No. 714567

Whether or not it's worth is really just depends on your personal taste but, if you want to try some albums I would recommend
>Red Velvet "The Perfect Red Velvet" & "Perfect Velvet
>Sunmi "Warning"

and some good artists are Mamamoo, G-IDLE, Apink, Brown Eyed Girls, f(x), 4minute and CLC. If you like Blackpink you'll probably like CLC, f(x) and G-IDLE the most. Also K/DA if that counts as a kpop group. I know that's a whole laundry list, but tbh the only way to discover kpop groups is to just look around. You could also watch award shows like MMA and MAMA, and there are also channels that 24/7 livestream k-pop performances

No. 714576

To tack onto this I'd also recommend loona for new generation girlgroups, their stans are cancerous but they actually have a variety of songs musically from the girls solo releases predebut

also really like Dreamcatcher, WJSN, NCT, TXT (the younger group under BTS's label), stray kids, contemporary TWICE. For solos BoA, Taeyeon, Lim Kim's old stuff. As anon mentioned SM's entertainment artists, fx, red velvet, girls generation, as examples, release pretty solid albums. If you like r&b I'd recommend artists like bibi, jiselle, lee hi, dean. Mostly listen to female artists but I concur that >>714567 has some good recs and wanted to add more

If you like blackpink, check out 2ne1, different generation but same label, similar producers and sound

No. 714591

Samefag to add Chungha to my recommendations. Her songs are very same-y, but her choreography is so amazing. I know I already recommended Red Velvet is it obvious I'm a stan? but you should also listen to their Japanese songs (#CookieJar, Sappy, Aitai Tai) if you end up liking their songs, you should also listen to the IRENE X SEULGI album the choreo on naughty is fucking insane. The "velvet" side of RV is so solid.

Solo artists Yubin (Former member of Wonder Girls, which is also the group Sunmi was apart of) and Luna (Former member of f(x)) also have some bops in the few songs they've released. Heize is also a fantastic k-r&B artist.

Heavily seconding this anons

No. 714597

tbh kpop is super accessible and easy to get into, it's not exactly full of 'hidden gems' and the most popular songs are generally the better ones. And it has historically been dominated by 3 companies so if you go through the youtube channels for SM Entertainment, YG Ent and JYP Ent or look up their individual artists, that will cover a massive % of the most well known music and from there you can just watch recommended stuff. Though keep in mind the view counts are super skewed towards newer groups even if they aren't as influential or iconic as older groups, imo kpop started getting really good around 2008 onwards, the hits around that time were huuuge.

And yes, it's totally worth it if you like catchy upbeat pop. No other music industry has such a high concentration of fun earworm bops, even if it can get really same-y sounding.

One of my oldest friends is an enby and he'd probably spiral into depression knowing I'm not as blindly supportive as he thinks I am.

She is a Disney kid and was the protagonist of the reboot of High School Musical.
There's this whole "drama" behind the song because it's directed to Joshua Bassett, who was his co-star in the series. Apparently they were going to date but she was young and he told he was going to wait for her, but ended up dating Sabrina Carpenter, an older, more accomplished singer/actress. Zoomers are obsessed with this story and have been talking about it for days, it gave the song a lot of fame and now it's like the most streamed song in the US ever, I believe
It's so boring to me, but I guess it's nice that she wrote it herself. As for being noticed by Taylor, Olivia is a huge fan and is always taking about her, so she might be like some mentor for her

What is this? Is there some hidden agenda behind it? This adult in diapers always acted pissy and jealous towards me, and now all of the sudden this person is trying to 'support/love' bomb me?

There most likely some agenda behind it going on because this person is known for making up things or doing some hidden shit.

I am not sure what to do because it's awkward. They already forced this PC onto me but I know I am not going to use it because I will also have to return it anyway. But now this person is trying to ask to 'spend time' with me but it's not even them being a bitch to me for a whole year, but also me just not being interested in playing videogames at all anymore. I am lost, and I at least want to somehow say _no_ about timespending, but I know they will push it and it will be awkward, but jesus christ, I do not want to spend time with this person because of all of the shit they've been doing against me when I've always been nothing but polite.

Some might see it as a sign of irresponsiblity or sloppiness, a lot of the time people with no frame have a filthy room, too. As long as your room looks put together and clean otherwise, I don't see a problem with it. Some people have a frame with slats instead of a box spring, some people like using underbed space for storage. It's just personal taste. I think a lot of it is people on the internet like to state their opinions as objective truths.
