I'm interested in getting more into digital/technological privacy, can anyone spoonfeed beginner resources and tips to get started? Good alternatives to Google or Microsoft stuff, bad stuff to watch out for? Kind of curious about Linux as well but don't know anyone who uses it so I would appreciate input. I just want ways to improve my experience, be aware of the really intrusive stuff, and explore non-mainstream tech, so any suggestions are fine it doesn't have to be super hardcore invisible
I'm not totally tech illiterate but I'm not versed in programming or the ins and outs of software

Some TP is shitty in many ways, sometimes literally and sometimes just quality-wise, so it clogs the plumbing of the toilet, not only because the plumbing is shit and the system of the toilet is retarded and surely old or even ancient, but also because the pressure of the water that runs in the building isn’t strong enough to flush a bunch of toilet paper and shit at the same time.
Most of the times it’s not something like you can’t just clean yourself after peeing with a bit of toilet paper and call it a day, the issue is when someone goes to the bathroom, shits a lot and then cleans themselves up with too much toilet paper that gets thrown in the toilet causing the clogging of the century.

You can find some ideas in r/freelancer but here's my suggestions, these are some jobs that pay a little but need no prior experience:
You could try transcribing aka adding subtitles to videos for deaf and other hard of hearing people. You usually read a big instruction manual, do two or three tests to see how well you can follow the instruction manual, and then get an email if you can work with them or not. Depending on where you sign up, you can also fill out which topics you're knowledable on and less likely to make mistakes on when transcribing.
You can also try translating. Same as transcribing, but now you're translating one language into another.
Article writing if you're interested in it. There are different websites you can sign up to work for where someone sends in a request for an article about a certain topic, you can write that article, and if they like it they can purchase it from you. Some websites have a ranking system where the more good reviews your article gets, the more money you'll get paid. There's also article editing. You can also get payed to fix typos and reorganize an article (or list) if writing isn't your thing. You can also work as an editor for somebody's original books.
There are different sites that will pay you to write 10 ten lists. They usually require a specific amount of words and have an author's guide on their site.
Also, if you go to different generic freelance websites, you can often find people who are searching for someone to design logos for their company or banners for their websites. If you're an artist, I'd recommend graphic designing. It helps if you have a portfolio as well. You could also try working for a company as an animator or voice actor online. Try www.castingcall.club
There's the option of working as a virtual assistant that many people persue nowadays. That entails scheduling appointments, answering calls, and managing email accounts from your own home.
You said you want to be anonymous right? I've heard about Qmee where you do surveys for money. Surveys usually pay anywhere in between 30 cents and 2 dollars, and they have a feature where if the survey asks you anything sketchy then you can report them. You can also cash out whenever, you don't have to build up a certain amount. (If you aren't American, you may only get a couple surveys per day.) An extra 20 dollars a month isn't much but it's nice. Another website I'd recommend is Fiverr, a website where you state your talents and you can take on other people's smaller projects for small amounts of money. A funny example is this YouTube skit where someone paid some people on fiverr to come up with a break-up letter. I believe you can also keep a portfolio for any projects you make during your freelance jobs on fiverr too. Redbubble is where you can put different designs onto different types of clothing, notebooks, mugs, hats, etc. It helps if you have a design that's from a fandom, references a meme, or fufills a niche. You can also go to TeeSpring if you want to put multiple designs on one item, but you'd have to promote your items yourself as TeeSpring has this issue where you can't search for new stores who aren't already popular. If none of this works you can volunteer online. Good luck with your job nonna.

What’s with thirst trapping on depop? Aren’t girls reselling to other girls? Am I just too geriatric to understand?
I'm sad to say anon that a lot of it is to cater to moids with fetishes. I'm in a few depop seller communities and so many of them come online to vent about how when they are just trying to sell a pair of shoes they get flooded by requests of photos with the shoes on and asked how many times they were worn etc.
I think sellers have obviously caught on that gross ass moids will pay more for that stuff if it is obviously "used" so to speak.

You are right. My opinion is that I think.. = My opinion is that…
Actually, it would be grammatically wrong to say "my opinion is that I think" because saying "My opinion is that…" is the same as "I think that…"
An opinion is not a fact, so I don't know why your boyfriend insisted to say the first one.
You’re already stating you don’t think it’s a fact, but that it’s your opinion.
Males state everything like a fact, he’s just trying to keep you submissive. Nothing personal but that’s just male socialization,

>>1778316>God he used to cross dress too so I’m afraid he must be some sort of tranny sympathizer
He IS. Trannies are most often murked by males who are disgusted by that shit. If a man doesn't like tranniness, he'll make that clear. If a man is defending
tranniness, he is
a sympathizer. Probably even one of those freaks who would fuck trannies too and think that's perfectly normal. And the male you're talking about crossdresses? Nonnie
, he got defensive because even he knows he's bound to troon out eventually. Personally, I wouldn't even be friends with someone who drinks the tranny kool-aid, much less date them. I don't know what you're gonna do about your relationship but if I was dating a guy and he told me that he supported trannies and even crossdressed, I would break up with him right then and there.
I managed a hotel housekeeper who did a lot of self harm and I didn't do anything special because of it I just politely ignored it. None of my business. The uniform had short sleeves but anyone could wear a long sleeve undershirt if they wanted to, she didn't probably because it was hot. I didn't care, that's her decision.
Housekeeping might not be considered "customer facing" since you don't always see the guest when you clean the room but that's the closest personal experience I had. Everyone just ignores it. One of the managers even came in looking like she got mauled by a cat she had multiple SH cuts all over her neck and chest and even a couple on her face, I was honestly surprised she chose to come in like that, the cuts were really shallow and light they would have looked a million times better in like 3 days. She was clearly in a bad way emotionally (she was acting normal for work but you could see she wasn't okay) but no one said a word.

Just say that. Most people will understand.
"Please know that I appreciate your confession and you seem like a wonderful person. However, I am already in a relationship. I know it's not easy to put yourself out romantically so I wish you the best in your search for the perfect match."
Or a less formal way to phrase it.
"Thanks but I'm already dating. Good luck though"
it's mostly a fantasy/insecure women project that is not even true. I've personally seen a lot more moids and fat girls project because they get off on the idea of other women being jealous, also why, in general, there's been a weird uprise of insecure girls assuming women are jealous of them for even looking at them for a milisecond kek
as for boob sizes go, in America, breast size is weird since a lot of fat girls desperately grasp onto it since it's literally one of the only "good" features they have even though breasts are unflatteringly shaped when it's due to fat and not actual breast tissue, men who are only capable of getting fat girls and fat girls themselves insanely project their insecurities onto other women, I've legit seen those psychos call skinny women with big tits like emrata flat/small breasted just because they can't stand they cant stand how women have proportionally big boobs without binging on mcdonalds

I can understand women nitpicking other women's bodies (I mean we're on lc after all) but the way it's portrayed in anime/manga feels so scrotish. Like men projecting their penis size envy
Kek agreed that it's just a projection of the penis envy thing, the way it's portrayed in anime is retarded and unrealistic. Unfortunately though I've seen a lot of cruelty and negging regarding breast size in friend and peer groups before, women aren't always nice and ~body positive, especially if they're already toxic
and tend to be jealous of other women to begin with.

You need to develop a strategy to remember names, nonnie

This isn't the first time she's dug something out of the trash either.This is why I hate giving stuff to donate because then she goes through the bags and insists on keeping things even though none of it will fit her or is within her taste. She even complains that the house is too small and wish she had a bigger one so she could fit all her shit in it. What really makes my blood boil is when she decides what to give away and of course it's the stuff I want to keep. And obviously it's never any of HER stuff.
My question is: is this common with boomer women? Does this classify as being a hoarder? I don't think my mom is a full blown hoarder but she does exhibit these weird behaviors and I'm so sick of it. Right now I'm trying to think of ways to get around this because calling her out on it didn't stop her the first time.
>>1780431>is this common with boomer women?
From my limited pool of two women, they both do it.>Does this classify as being a hoarder?
Yes. There are different types and different levels of hoarding.>ways to get around this
What day is trash day? Prepare a garbage bag and sneak out with it only an hour before trash pick up.
my mom is also a hoarder with clothes, would always chide my sister and me for donating them. sometimes even when they were old and ill fitting. you have to smuggle the shit out of the house and throw it out or donate it in public without her knowing to avoid causing a stir. i've already donated a lot, so sneaking out a few pieces here and there goes unnoticed. but if you have noticeably more stuff and donate a lot in a short period of time, she may notice. >What really makes my blood boil is when she decides what to give away and of course it's the stuff I want to keep. And obviously it's never any of HER stuff.
If this is a problem can you get a lock for your stuff? That's annoying.
My mom has five bottles of shampoo/conditioner in her bathroom and she fills almost-empty bottles of soap with water. I used to toss the shampoo bottles that were nearly empty and she definitely would take them from the garbage. She also has kept clothes in her closet that have never been worn, because she would refuse to return anything to the store it came from. It annoys me a lot but she did grow up in a big family that had to use foodstamps and hand-me-downs.
I read a post on reddit where a person helping their mom declutter would take a photo of the closet or boxes, and it made them more likely to throw stuff out instead of physically inspecting everything and second guessing its purpose.

Would anyone be interested in a holiday/birthday gifting thread?
I would be, nonnie
Kek, my boomer mom would go through the clothes I set aside to give away and argue me down on why I should keep whatever thing I was getting rid of. When that didn't work she'd go through the stuff to see what she could keep for herself she's shorter than I am so she probably thinks the stuff I'm giving away from my ana days will somehow fit her
I think it's common for them because their parents grew up in times of need and implanted that scarcity mindset shit in their brains. Then industrialization really took off when they were our age, so they could hoarde all they wanted. With the scarcity mindset in a "plentiful" environment, a lot of boomers, especially women who tend to like to collect and nest will have a lot of trouble letting go. Even if it's dumb crap that does nothing but take up space in your closet and would be better off in new hands.
I love soups, especially in colder weather this is my go to recipehttps://www.gimmesomeoven.com/cabbage-sausage-potato-soup/

These all significantly contribute to essential nutrients, you might be able to get away with cutting some out if you have good reason but you'd have to really be careful with getting enough nutrition. and make sure you don't have certain conditions or risks

I think that as long the clothes are the right size and don’t get transparent when you squat, no one will care. It’s alway better to go for safe stuff like plain leggings, maybe add some loose shorts on top of them, a nice plain sports bra and a long and loose tank top.
Stuff like pic related.
I know this isn't the question, but I have a feeling the solution for hair turning white will come within our lifetimes, nonas. Anyway, I've had a few since my teenage years and have only gotten a few more in my late twenties. I have a ton of hair and no one ever notices, I wouldn't worry about it.
If you're really upset, you can use some kind of dye anyway. It's not the end of the world
are you smart and/or a problem-solver? Those are also ways to show care for another person. Some people give gifts to show affection. Not everyone is highly emotionally or physically affectionate but usually those people find other ways to express positive emotions.
I also think having passion for something (like an interest or subject) can be attractive and entertaining.

they still use it a lot in organizations for young people or goverment advertisements, same with replacing o with "x" but the x feels like when they used @ in everything kek

Hello, fellow fatty who joined a few months ago. Wear joggers. Maybe the size should be 1 size up so that they sit on your waist and don't fall down and show your underwear when you're bending to pick up weights or doing floor exercises, just make sure the joggers have a string which you can tighten to keep them snug. I also wear a certain style of shirt which curves down in the front and back bottom of the shirt. I'm not sure of the name of the style but its cut like this pic, but obviously with full length sleeves and no cleavage. Got them both from my local walmart so I cant send any links or anything to help
I know its nervewrecking but the vast majority of people at the gym don't give a damn about what you're doing and if they do, they're subhumans who should kill themselves. The fact that you're there and trying to make a change in your life is already amazing in itself. Never let other retards stop you from improving your health.
I grow natural black hair but it was turning faded and orangey so I wanted to cancel out that unwanted tone, I don't get the saturated raw color advertised because my hair is not lightened>>1782186>>1782205
will keep trying thanks for the tips

Anons, I have a conundrum. My boyfriend believes that Rouge The Bat from Sonic is black or Afro-latina, and that Lola Bunny from Looney Tunes (specifically Space Jam) is white. I couldn't disagree more. Lola Bunny is very obviously mixed race to me, while Rouge The Bat is white. However, we both agree that Roxanne from A Goofy Movie is mixed. What are your thoughts?

I didn't see any when i visited the site because i only went there like 3 times. You act like i'm supposed to know what happens on there every second of the day…
all altchans have a cp problem, even the female ones get spammed up frequently. 4chan had it bad too before moderation got tighter (there's also plausible tinfoils that feds use it)
There do exist some sharty moids who use it casually and are simply interested in sperging with images of bald bearded men (I know a few personally, they stopped using the boards after noticing illegal content)
but there's definitely shady stuff. For one, there's some groups who basically revolve around cowtipping in extreme ways just to harm people, and they spend time there. And of course most people on obscure imageboards are going to be deranged in various ways. For some reason there's a monkey torture video issue there. I've heard tinfoils that the site owners are involved with it but don't know the details.
I would not claim that it's literally a site for people who like cp and gore but there's absolutely a problem and its esoteric nature will mean more degens than 4chan
I think asians in general tend to have beautiful jawlines. Yes I've seen a lot of Korean before and afters of like large jawline deformities shaved down to pulp but I've also seen really nice jaws.

Late answer but basically, Leon Festinger (inventor of the theory of cognitive dissonance) observed that when a prophecy fails (for example, the end of the world is announced on a specific day but nothing happens), if the follower is isolated (alone at home, for example), he or she is more likely to abandon the belief. On the other hand, for those who are in a group, among followers, at the moment of the event (the failure), after a phase of confusion in the face of the obvious, there's a phenomenon of taking back control of the faith through an accepted explanation (like "we're going to recalculate the date, because we must have made a mistake somewhere"), and above all through very active proselytizing which serves to reinforce the belief.
This teaches us that belief is based more on others believing the same thing, rather than on proven elements. It's more a phenomenon of social psychology than a search for truth. If many people believe in something, then it will produce more believers, because ultimately the (non-conscious) aim is to reassure oneself within the community. This ties in with other observations in psychology. The fear of rejection by the group, and the desire to belong to the group, is a strong human tendency. Of course, the extent to which this is the case depends on the individual's personality and ability to become aware (through scientific training) of these thought-distortion phenomena.

Why do cats act very affectionate, but switch up so hard in a second like this?
samefag, a lot of people write off cat's "random" aggression as just them being assholes for no reason, and while it's true they can be assholes, there is usually a cat social reason behind the assholery. Cat social dynamics are really subtle to the human eye and if you set out to observe carefully, it's interesting and hilarious to observe the intricacies of it

The study probably means that abuse victims
were more often LGBT people, not that they committed more abuse.

Excellent counterargument to your rampant male worship. Its not a mystery that you're all shitting on homosexual people while conveniently ignoring the elephant in the room.

After reading >>1780759
, I thought about it for a few days, and I realized there really seem to be absolutely no reasons for anyone to date me (individual preferences in looks aside, obv). I don't mean this in a self-pitying wahwah look at poor me wahhh way but as an objective fact that I don't even mind all that much, if I'm being honest. I know very well I have positive qualities, but those are some you'd rather look for in an employee and less (or not at all, depending on which trait of mine we're talking about) in a romantic partner. So I wanna ask anons, sorry for the MRA-lite way of talking, what do you guys bring to the table?
No really, what got under your skin? Too much talking about men/gay men when males are not even a significant portion of csa victims
? The conversation was kinda dumb but that’s nothing new.
Oh I never thought about the differences between lesbian and gay victims
of SA because it really doesn't make sense when they were all abused by men. So either it has a different impact on the sexes or there is no link at all. Anyways how would you even study that?
I don't think there's any way to study this truly, one should also account for that many older gay men prey on younger gay boys who are exploring their sexuality (in private due to potential persecution). A lot of gay men say their first experience was with an older man.
It would be horrendous to study because you'd have to account for straight males being less likely to come forward due to feelings of emasculation which could have a knock on effect to how they view their orientation. So if that was true there could be men saying they're gay or bi when they aren't, just traumatised. How women v men grow up in a patriarchy is different so does the view of yourself as 'the woman' 'the beta' 'the victim
' mean it could have an extra affect on how men view their sexuality? I don't know.

>>1785028>men who consider themselves gay have been showed to be exposed to more estrogen in the womb vs straight men
huh i didnt know this.>It may be that gay boys are targeted more often by predators (you can often just tell a child will grow up to be a homo) due to being more effeminate
this seems to track in relation to effeminacy. since in some studies lesbian/straight women had no difference in csa regardless of masculinity while effeminate men (regardless if gay/straight) were more likely to be victims
of csa, almost at the rate of women.
thanks to the nonnas who helped clear my head and brought up some good points. looks like homosexuality is real and does have a biological cause, its just that boys that are female-like are more likely to be victims
of child abusers
Also forgot to add that the regions in the brain that differ from gay men vs straight men are also found to differ in homosexual male animals other than humans, which points to a biological factor. I think the fact that animals other than humans can be gay should count as evidence in itself.
The part I suggested about gay boys being targeted more often maybe due to being more effeminate is just my own theory though. I agree with your views, though I think this >>1785145

I don't think there's an advice thread, so I'll just ask this here:
Would it be okay if I buy my mother a Christmas present but not my father? I love my mother to death, she means the absolute most to me and I want to give her something to show appreciation. I was considering getting her an Apple Watch, because she likes going on runs and tracking her steps. She has an iPhone already, and an off brand generic smart watch, so I think that a real Apple Watch would be good for her because then she can use Apple Fitness for fitness tracking and track stuff like distance and heart rate unlike her bootleg smart watch which has its own app and only tracks steps. We go on walks together every weekend and she often (playfully) expresses jealousy at the fact that I have an Apple Watch, so I think that buying her one would be a cool and heartwarming gift.
My father, on the other hand, I don't really care about him so much. He just…. exists. I don't talk to him often despite the fact that we all live in the same house. He openly does not care about me but will still whine 24/7 about how he's the "pRoViDer" and the "hEaD oF tEh hOusEHolD!1!1!" (even though I'm an adult with a job). I don't really want to buy him anything, maybe socks, or a 50% off our country's pizza place coupon, if I have to. Idk.
Anyway, is it bad to give my mother a fancy, expensive gift, but get my father nothing? If it is bad, would it be any better if I got him a bulk pack of socks or something like that? Should I wait for my mother's birthday to give her a Apple Watch, so I don't openly "play favorites"?

Depends on how bad your situation is and whether you have any other options.
Good: Comes with lots of perks, easy way to make money if your grades aren't good enough for college, you get a permanent job buff and will be hired over others with the same qualifications but no military experience.
Bad: They will abuse your body enough that you will prematurely get arthritis and your cartilage will be permanently damaged. You will definitely be sexually harassed and high chance of sexual assault.

Straight women debating whether anything exists that challenges their world view. People arguing that homosexuals abuse each other more when we all know males do this against women. Their not even trying to look like they're not defending "the good normal men". One even mentioned how lesbians exist because they are traumatized by men when we know that's just fucking wrong.
To both of you acting confused and purposefully ignorant, why don't you ask what these women consider themselves attracted to and yourselves rub some of your brain cells together and contextualize. I hate tards debating whether homosexuality is real, but this went a step and beyond justifying their moid worship by elimination. Could one argue if straight people are "real" or is it just caused by abuse and trauma, since most het women are abused in their relationships with moids who are the most statistically highest demographic of rapists.

A friendly acquaintance of mine invited me to a girls’ night holiday party, where we all dress in Christmas onesies and exchange a “nice, $20-30 gift”.
The thing is, I don’t know any of them super well but I’ve been to a few parties at the host girl’s house. Everyone is in their late 20s-late 30s, and some of them are into the punk/emo/skater scene but also kinda clean cut (the host is engaged to a cop - who is also a skater in a punk band), and most of them drink but don’t smoke weed.
I haven’t hung out in a group of women in a long time IRL and I feel completely autistic about it. What the fuck do I bring as a gift exchange gift?

Currently comforting a friend rn because her retarded bf has been caught looking at other multiple times, so my question is: is oogling other women considered cheating? It is to a certain degree right Or at least disrespectful?
They keep it for themselves and if they don't, they paint themselves as the victim
. So when the abuse starts, they can gaslight their partner by claiming victimhood.
Calm down puta.
During summer yes it makes sense but sweating on and off during the day in the other seasons? Girl you need to get your hormones level checked
not cheating but is disrespectful and grounds for a breakup.
the only way i could think it was cheating is if he's a serious foot fetishist and he's looking at their feet. but those guys are rare.

You don't have to be outgoing to impress in a job interview! Try emphasising with every answer how you see yourself staying / working upward in the company.

Good luck nonnie

There are a lot more people who identify as sexual deviants today than there were in the past, especially among younger generation, so nurture definitely plays a factor. So there is no reason to believe that homosexuality can't be a trauma response that's caused by being groomed/molested by a pedophile. I think that sexual deviancy is as much a societal disease as substance abuse, prostitution, criminality or poverty.>>1786677

I've learned to ignore it. I understand anons dislike for gay men (more than most people) but whenever they go from listing valid
reasons to straight up denying their humanity and being obscenely creepy and out of touch I can't support it. I hate that gay men get away with being extremely developmentally arrested and misogynistic solely because they are gay. A lot of them are sociopaths that think they get a free card to do whatever they want to women because it isnt #sexual. I have witnessed horrifying behavior from gay men that anons could not imagine, but that said there are also great gay men who don't have that awful fake affectation, and denying their existence and claiming they had to have been molested is crazy and just as homophobic toward lesbians as it is gay men. They wont listen. They also won't accept that young boys are molested almost if not just as much as young girls, straight men are just more likely to never admit it because they don't want to be called gay and have a lot of societal pressure to bury it. Most of the men in my life I have later found out have been molested, often by older cousins, brothers, friends, etc. They molest eachother and pretend it's no big deal. It's pretty fucked up.

Can anyone tell me if this gap(black between gray and metal) is normal wear and tear from the seal/silicone of the washing machine?
I noticed it today and I haven't done laundry in awhile and I'm afraid the water is gonna go in the gap because its not a full seel! I can't remember if this is normal with use and I don't want water on the floor everywhere. When you pull back the seel it shows metal but there's no tube or anything so I'm wondering if its just a safety procedure to remove big crap/socks but it got unsealed a little bit around the drum.

Also there will always be people getting bitter about women's preferences regardless of what you do. Lots of Asian women who date white men get unfairly accused of crap too so just don't even worry about anyone who thinks it's their business

you can't be serious kek, there is indeed a difference between refusing to interact with people at work because of their race, and deciding who you want to date
. what's next, discrimination on the basis of sex is also bad when it comes to dating? stop thinking that "you're racist!!" is a winning argument in every scenario, most of the time it isn't. what matters is not being discriminated against in the public sphere, that's it. you can't police people thoughts and sexual attraction. good luck finding a country where everyone dates with zero consideration for culture and race, we'll see if it's really the norm as you say

Interesting that you got 2 absolutely opposite answers. Usually, when styling, it goes 2 ways: you either try to make your features as "balanced" and moderate as possible, or you embrace your look and even exaggerate it with similar lines.>>1789125
Nonna, perhaps you have layered hair? I heard from women with long faces that they dislike it when it's just falling straight.>>1789128
True, many people with longer faces feel so. Judge for yourselves, but to me long-faced woman still looks nice with a bob, since her hair aligns with the jaw too. I personally think that they both look better with longer hair though kek

am i doing something wrong if my eyes are super red after showering?
Piercings on other parts of the body can be more, less or equally as inconvenient as ear piercings - people get them because they look good and that's all there is to it really, considering they're not the enforced beauty standard in most of the world. The process of healing can be shorter or longer depending on the piercing but after that initial healing is over you're set for life unless it's a surface piercing that could randomly reject. It's not really much of a hassle and you can always take them out if you don't like them.
For example, heels to me are way more impractical than dealing with my facial piercings so I don't wear them, everyone has different limits to what they're comfortable doing.
As for tattoos, they heal way faster than piercings and are a fun process to go through. From choosing the artist, going with their design or with your own idea, booking an appointment to getting tattooed - it's a whole process that almost feels like it's own little project and that's what makes it fun in my opinion. I also love getting tattooed with my friends and sister so it's also a shared interest.

I think when you say "infinity" you're asking how we know certain numbers are irrational? i.e., can't be expressed as a/b the way something like 0.5 -> ½ can, so the decimal goes on forever without repetition
Idk how complicated of an answer you want but here's a simple example showing how the square root of 2 must go on forever because it would cause a logical inconsistency if it didn't. Basically, any number that ends or repeats can be written as some number divided by some other number. Even without knowing what those numbers are and just assuming that some
pair of numbers equals sqrt(2), we get contradictions, so no such pair exists and thus the number doesn't terminate.https://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/euclid-square-root-2-irrational.html
There are multiple proofs for pi being irrational too, won't be easy to fit in this post so just look them up.

File: 1701045689330.png (120.96 KB, 719x979, pi proof.png)
Just to clarify, although everyone says pi is infinite, it's actually the decimal expansion of pi is infinitely long. This is pretty common, consider how 1/3 becomes 0.33333 and that it repeats infinitely. Pi is more unique in that it doesn't degrade into a repeating decimal pattern (like 5/28 which becomes 0.17857142857142 and then repeats 857142 endlessly). Now computers have calculated it to an extremely high number (100,000,000,000,000 digits is the current record), but to prove that it actually goes on to infinity, we use this mathematical proof.
An interesting about a number being infinite versus having infinite decimal expansion means that we know that some infinities are larger than others. Consider all numbers between 1 and 2. The number has infinite decimal expansion, (1.1, 1.11, 1.111, etc.), but although it's infinite, it's still smaller than the infinity between 1 and 3.

I'm 20… can anyone older offer some advice for careers and education?
Not to turn this into a huge rant but I feel super directionless yet pressured to have it all figured out. I'm in uni but don't know what kind of career I want so I'm just sort of aimlessly taking courses with little progress on a degree. People keep acting like I'm just not trying and like if I just thought about it, I'd realize that x y z was my passion and life's true calling all along, but I seriously don't know and tbh I feel too young for it all, like a kid who just wants to live her life freely.
I'm currently needing to pick between just gritting my teeth through some random bachelor's degree that I don't care for, or putting uni on hold and being a minimum wage worker until I hopefully come up with a clearer direction.
if you are paying for school and dont know what you want to do i would drop out. i have a bachelor's in economics (which i chose because it seemed general enough to do whatever, because i had no idea what i wanted) but have worked the past 3 years as a supervisor at a hotel making perfectly good money. at this point i dont want to do anything with my degree, i dont want to work in a cubicle all day doing work that no one even understands. if you really truly dont know what u want to do you would be better off working a regular degular job having a real life and your own money and contributing to your community by taking on needed work. im 100% jaded on higher education. the world doesnt need more marine biologists or analysts or whatever bullshit, we need smart people to take on real life responsibilities instead of delaying their life in academia.
if you arent paying for school, do whatever. but if you are paying its likely you wont even work in your chosen field after graduation and will not have needed that degree. one of the bellmen at my hotel majored in environmental science…. lotta good it did him.
sorry it didn't work out for you but i'm just basing my advice on what's statistically the case. neither of us can predict the future and know exactly what's best for nonna, and we could trade good and bad anecdotes and personal experiences all day, so it makes more sense to act on what's probably
the case given the information she provided. people with degrees on average earn more and are less likely to be unemployed, this much is clear. yes, underemployment is common and many people's work has nothing to do with their major. still makes more sense to stick with it overall. we can have a separate conversation about majors, but i would expect nonna would be better suited talking to a counselor about that.
I'll never get what the big deal is with using lc in public. You're already using an imageboard, which is bad enough. A censored panty shot isn't going to catch anyones attention. Put your brightness down, scroll by it fast and people won't see shit. Either own it or don't, stop requesting the board culture to be adapted to your whims.
t. someone that uses lc in public
I have talked to many counselors and advisors but find them consistently unhelpful. Some of them seem set on selling a particular major to me, like one lady who majored in communications so she pushed it based on her good experience alone (even though it seems like a horrible fit for me). Others take the opposite extreme of a vague hands-off "just keep screwing around and one day you'll figure it out" mentality where they basically don't contribute besides patting me on the back.
I think the advisors at my school are sort of notoriously incompetent, a lot of people complain about unhelpfulness>>1790550>>1790579
pretty much summarizes the two main perspectives I hear, some people are saying I shouldn't bother if I have no plan and others are saying that I should at least pick up some bachelor's degree while I'm here because any degree will be useful later on.
For context my parents are extremely pro higher ed and strongly disapprove of not going, which is why I was sent off to uni without a clear goal. They are THE people who eat up those college ranking lists and idolize degrees. On one hand it's true that I would not be able to support myself if I just started working (only really qualify for min wage retail/restaurant stuff) but on the other hand we're blowing $$$ on something I'm not confident on.
what are you majoring in now, and what are you considering? you must have narrowed it down at least somewhat, and i assume you were given riasec - you should have a sense of what you do not
want to do at least. have you tried writing out all your options and listing pros and cons, as well as potential careers in each? if you have narrowed it down, have you tried taking a class in any of them, or talking to people with those majors, or going to clubs organized around those majors, or talking to professors who teach intro classes in those majors? have you gone to any career fairs, or are there any opportunities to shadow someone in their work? if money weren't an issue, what would you study?
if you have the opportunity and time, hop from one major to another for a semester or something and see how it feels. you can do that in some places where they take on students both in autumn and winter. you'll only know if something REALLY is or isn't your thing when you're face to face with having to do work related to it. that's how i understood i hate digital marketing and tourism, though i am currently stuck in digital design because i don't know where to move forwards and i am not allowed to go backwards. you know the feeling when something you're doing is so wrong to you that you can't help but to think "i don't see myself here in the future, this isn't my place" as soon as you try to imagine yourself in 5 years? that's the feeling you might need to get before you get to where you want to be. it's ok to jump from one thing to another, if you're willing to do it, it's to help you jump around enough until you find stability.
by the by, if you can asap find someone to connect with in the major you're interested in, they might be your saving anchor. it's always tenfold easier to get through academic bullshit with someone else.

am I a bad person or going to seem like one if I use an AI generated icon just for fun? it's just a silly image of an animal and looks really cute, I have no presence at all on this account and just use it to talk to friends
I dislike AI art as a whole when used as a replacement for actual art, claimed to be 'real art' or for profit, but sometimes the pics it can generate are silly and fun so I'm torn if this is acceptable or not
Id say no, the opinion you have already on AI is the mainstream one, if you’re just using it for fun and not making profit or knowingly trying to recreate a living artist’s work I think you’re fine. If someone asks you can just tell them that, but beware some people are extremely anti ai and so if you have insane friends who would skin you alive for it then don’t do it. Or just tell them you found it off Pinterest or Twitter and you didn’t know it was AI. Don’t stress yourself out over it nonna you’re a good person.>>1790752

What do you think is the stupidest question one can ask?
I knew what i wanted to become from a young age on and i was one of the only ones in my friend group. Once i got my degree i constantly was going back and forth between jobs because what i aimed for is an oversaturated shit market now and i was basically useless. I ended up going back to college and getting a degree in marketing so i can work for a variety of companies now.
I would say maybe figure out where you would want to work. Because i didn't have any particular skills i chose marketing because it is such a broad field that it would be easy for me to work whatever company i'd like. Ask yourself what wouldn't you mind doing for a big portion of your life. Check job openings at websites and write down the things that interest you. You can also ask questions like would you rather work outside, at a desk, or something mixed? Do you care about the corporate world or would you rather work for a small company? Would you like to help people or do more droney work where you can zone out? You can already eliminate a lot of jobs asking questions like this to see what kind of job you would like to do. Having a passion for something shouldn't mean necessarily that you should work in that field. I have a friend who always wanted to be a child psychologist but ended up working for a venue and now books bands. They volunteer at a youth center in their free-time. Doing internships or something like that can help too. There are certain organizations that can set that up for you. Sometimes you can also contact people in the field and ask if they can show you what their job entails for a day to see if it fits you. I wish you the best of luck with all this, nonna! Shit like this aint easy.

Is it normal to feel bad about the fact that I have not achieved a lot in life and I'm 27?
I sometimes feel ashamed cause I have only been employed twice and I'm still not finished with my studies.
I'm aware society pressures us into pushing it to the limit and feeling like a loser if you can't, I don't subscribe to that kind of thinking at all. I think everyone deserves respect even if they've never worked one job or less. I don't care about that at all, and still i beat my self up over it
Ty for that.

I sound cruel, I shouldn't have called her retarded, but she's like a toddler in an adult body. Where do I start? She speaks and acts like a young child, she eats inedible bright-colored objects like crayons and glitter, watches mindless youtube videos on autoplay for hours like an ipad baby, listens to music on 2x speed so she "doesn't get bored"… I could go on and on. And that's just out of what I know, every other day I learn something new.
Her mind has been totally scrambled being homeschooled by her fucking nutcase parents. Who supposedly followed a dog training manuel as their parenting guide. I feel so sorry for her and I'm enraged at them for what they made her into.
Sorry for the rant it's just everything about her absolutely dumbfounds me. Sometimes I wonder if I'm being taken for a ride, but I don't think so.

How often do you think about things from the past? I recall so much. I think it's because over the years I always reminisced.
Of course, small details I know for a fact I frequently miss. Sometimes I read scraps of papers and other things I wrote from that time and I'm blown away that I'm the same person who could have written that.
We're truly not the same people.
I know it's weird, but I view my child, teenage, and younger adult selves as entirely separate entities than who I am today which is why I don't understand people who don't really change. How could you not??

I have a lot of scattered memories from vague ages, under the age of 6 or 7. There’s some mundane ones but a lot of them are fucked up or scary or I don’t even know if they’re real. I don’t trust my early memory, I have memories of things I wasn’t even alive for mix with memories that are real. Childhood memories would make a good spooky movie concept. Around 9 is the earliest age I can remember the most from, I can remember the feelings I felt and the things I did and my thoughts. Before that I don’t remember much of my feelings or thoughts in great detail, just that I was sad and had the occasional moments of things you wouldn’t think a child would think.
I get disgusted with certain types of meat too, especially the smell of it. I find cooking ground meat in a sauce works fine but the smell of just meat on its own being cooked is repulsing to me (even when i like the food once it's done). My own theory is that the smell of burning meat evokes some ancient caveman memory of rotting flesh, instead of it registering as the smell of food. >>1793592>Part of me believes that I remember the day I was born, but I can't really tell if it's a false memory or not kek. Most likely it's false.
It is 100% false, your brain literally isn't capable of forming those kinds of memories yet as a newborn. It takes until you're about 3 (at the earliest 2+) for you to form those kinds of memories that you "remember" (unlike learning to walk and talk and such)
Do you hate all kinds of meat? Maybe you can find some cuts that taste better to you, or maybe find a way of coocking it that doesn't disgust you as much. Do you like fish? You can also go for some specific dairy products.
Otherwise beans, eggs and some types of flours are your best bet.
It's simply different depending on the person. I'm a diagnosed sperg so to be fair I don't have the average brain, but I've always been able to remember things from age 4-5 in great detail, while my friends would be shocked I remembered it because "that was so long ago"… when we were only 12.
Meanwhile I had a sperg moid friend (he turned out to be a creep lol) who claimed he was abused as a kid by his brother and that was the reason he had literally no memories until maybe age 13 or so, and still not much from his teens.
