Talk about many things that never really made sense to you from the mundane to schizo (ex. things you were taught in childhood, pineapple on pizza, beans on toast, paying taxes, parking lots full of cars but the grocery store is nearly empty, things your family did in the home that doesn’t make sense to outsiders that you now question, etc.).

why tf do moids keep calling things longhouse. like ok they all live in one big house and they’re matriarchal sometimes. so the idea is we own nothing and are ruled by women. so why is everything longhousian because some of these things are not matriarchal or even hivemind so what gives? i would think its the gradual watering down of words that happens but moids cant even give it a year before they start dumbing it down to “anything i don’t like or think is stupid”

I worked in a bank and it does work like that (atleast where I live). I did transfer and cash deposit and I literally had to add/detuct the sum to the account manually and if I wanted I could've gone to anyone's account and transfer 10,000 to mine just by typing numbers in a box. Someone would notice or the system would flag me and I'd be in huge trouble, but it's technically that easy. One time I messed up and someone wanted to retrieve 200 from their account, I gave them the cash but messed up the operation and added 200 to their account instead of deducting, so for a moment they had +400; we have some kind of cash register and the balance was off so I noticed it at the end of my shift and corrected it, it's not like you can miss those mistakes but it can happen just like that and if the person had spent everything we couldn't get the money back. There are simple scams where someone will pass as a client and ask for a money transfer from an account to theirs, on the phone or via email, if you don't check every detail you could very well transfer thousands or more from a client's account to a scammer and to you it would just take a few clicks and numbers to change.

Anon kekkkkk if this is real this is the funniest post I've seen in a while. They understand Japanese for the same reason you understand English: they were raised with it and intuitively learned what each word meant, how sentences are built etc. as kids by mimicking their parents. When you always hear your parents say "konichiwa" when they see each other, you intuitively pick up what it means and how and when it's used.

No. 2075049

>>2075044
anon I don't know what you are spiraling about, the japanese people don't think they say hi to each other, they think and speak in japanese. Languages generally have similar concepts because humans share many experiences. We can translate these things but translations aren't perfect and some things aren't translatable. Language also influences how we think and makes some cultures better at some things and worse at others. Mandarin for example doesn't really have tenses or there are some languages that have no concept of blue. These people suck at recognizing obviously blue things but they have 20 words for green and are incredibly good at differentiating shades of green even though there is no anatomical basis for it, just language and experience.

Idk I grew up in a super old school Latin mass catholic house and tried my ass off to join in and believe, but couldn't get past the inner voice in me saying "lmao this shits wack". Especially after the priest got caught with CP of course. I also had a Muslim friend at school and she told me she felt the same but just played along for the sake of safety.

I love God because Jesus saved my life. He is good and loves us as his children. The reason there are terrible things is because humans have free will and are horrible to each other. He is not an intervening God. Also if you read the Bible with an open mind, you will find truth and instructions to live a good life. Forgiving others and yourself, grants you ultimate peace. Denying the material riches of this world leads you to true fulfillment. Being grateful for everything you have and experience will make life so much more rewarding. Being able to sacrifice yourself, denying your urges and trusting in the Lord will automatically lead you to a path of a good life.

A lot of new age cult scams also directly steal from the Bible. One example being how they say you can visualize and manifest things. This is literally called prayer.

Mark 11:22-25

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 
“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.

This is so funny because I live in a muslim country with sharia law and everything but cafes and juice shops sell soda with mint and lemon slices and call it a "mojito". They sell non-alcoholic wine and beer as well in supermarkets, and they even started locally made "champagne". They want to drink and get drunk so bad but they can't so they do these weird alternatives. There's also this one drink that's popular during ramdan and is made from grapes if I'm not mistaken, but it's a bit fermented or something and if you leave it in the fridge for 3 days it actually becomes alcoholic, and some people boast about doing that and trying it to get drunk. Then they turn around and be like "we're soooo much better than the west because we don't get drunk and do bad stuff!!!!", yet, they're so obsessed with the idea of getting intoxicated because their lives suck ass so bad they want some relief or escape kek. They brought that on themselves though, so I have 0 sympathy for those retarded losers.

They explain away everything by two things:

2. if you don't understand something it's because god doesn't want you to understand and you're not supposed to question it because it's god and you're a lowly human

and those two arguments are used to shut up basically every question or doubt.

>reading a book that is full of bs and horrible thinks about women

No idea. I've showed my mom misogynistic paragraphs from the bible that literally tell her she needs to be submissive to men, that she needs to shut up and be quiet as a woman, that men can have several wives but not vice versa, that female slaves are sold for less etc. but she insists that women are equal to men in the bible.

repression and doing things ONLY because they fear "God" is why. Muslims are very strange and do a lot of technicality stuff and loopholes. Like every evening during Ramadan they eat a shitton of food, esp sweet stuff. The whole point of fasting completely undermined, too. In Saudi Arabia sex before marriage isnt allowed so they have love hotels where you can get married for a night and divorce afterwards. I'm pretty sure this arrogance of trying to trick Allah and then also doing everything because you fear and don't want to get punished is just so completely wrong and leads to some unique, repressed mental illnesses. Like its obvious that love is the power that beats evil, not fear. And the reason you should avoid sinful things is for your own good. Like catholics fast too during Lent and instead of being a weird set of specific rules (and how to circumvent them) its about it being a personal thing. Where you are encouraged to give up something worldly for example, or otherwise sacrifice and deny yourself. And that you skip a meal and then don't eat two meals later to make up for it for example. Also Ramadan is a funny proof that Islam is a man made fake religion bc they didn't know that there's places on earth where the sun doesn't set kek

Nobody was hiding that fact, it’s people taking these scriptures and entities and twisting them for their own benefit and to control masses of people.

the basic idea of an airplane is that it is designed to generate power (lift) in directions that allow it to over come gravity pulling in the opposite dorection.
the airplane has a bunch of moveable parts and surfaces (on the wings, tails etc) that can be adjusted so that they're always at the right angle to meet/counteract the various forces that apply to the plane (gravity wind, turbulence etc). that way the olane is always at the correct angle to stay up in the air. you can see an example in picrel, the moving parts are in color.
the plane can technically fly without an engine (gliding) but it won't be able to do controlled flight without some of the adjustable parts (like the stabilizers) bc the pilot won't be able to make inputs to compensate whatever forces apply to the plane.

usually when people get to deathfat levels it's not simply due to liking food too much but down to some underlying trauma, grief, low self esteem or something else going on in their lives. they use eating as a coping mechanism to deal with it because there's a dopamine rush from indulging in food. sugary fatty food is also addictive so it becomes a vicious cycle

Yeah it's hard to describe. Every time I tried to explain this feeling to other people they thought I was just egocentric. That's not it, I have no problem looking at things from other people's POV and I do realize everyone has their own life and there's nothing special about mine. I probably just can't find the right words. The thing is my own existence and perception of the world (in a general sense, not my specific way of seeing things) is baffling to me, and it's even weirder to think that every person is confined in their body and mind just the same and it's basically all they know. And of course you can try to see things from another person's perspective and empathize but it's still your thoughts and feelings and your perception of this person. It's not hard to imagine someone having a life completely different from your own or a completely different worldview (although it's also not something you can fully immerse in because it's filtered by yours to a certain degree), but it's wild (to me) that everyone has this "god" in them–not in the sense of inflated ego but in the sense of being the center of everything, exploring and in a way "creating" the world around them so to speak because they only know what they see and can comprehend, and they choose what to seek, and where to go, and what to do, and they experience and interpret it all in their own unique ways. And there are lots and lots of these "centers" or "gods" but where does it even come from? The consciousness itself is incomprehensible and it's even weirder to think that everyone has it. I wish I could elaborate why it feels so weird to me but I can't quite verbalize it yet.

Kek anon, some people I'm sure do think other people are props but I feel like it's more about a sudden "conscious thought" (which is a stupid word combination) than the first thought about it ever.

Imo (as a casual artfag) it's theory that was created to facilitate color picking for aesthetically pleasing and cohesive realistic paintings, and we should not be treating it as absolute guidance for illustrations and design. Plus, the digital ones are shitty and use overly strict rules in a color space that has properties that are fundamentally different from those of traditional painting.

Also I am a functional shopper so I hate the "non-functional" aspects of a lot of fast fashion (no pockets, fabric not resistant enough against thigh chafing, cheap elastic waistbands that turn on themselves, fucking holes on the sides underneath where the breast is for "air ventilation" or some shit, bad quality pocket lining in coats/jackets which ultimately causes you to have shit fall into the lining of your jacket, etc )

two types basically.
woven means you just take horizontal and vertical threads and crissscross them. it gives you a flat (2d) piece of fabric and then you cut that piece and sew it to create a garment.
the other type is knit where instead of Crisscrossing the threads you loop them together. knitted fabric has more give and allows you to make 3d pieces
