Why is it that foods that are the most expensive and desired by the rich are generally disgusting?why do rich people like nasty food?

I agree with you anon. I found out about how it was made after trying to find some at Whole Foods (they don't sell it for ethical reasons). Never eating that shit again. :|

The one thing that annoys me as far as expensive meat is concerned though is how many people seem to think paying more for free range, pasture-raised, grass fed etc. is "ridiculous". Luckily I only live in wealthy areas so generally only hear this complaint online. But of course they still sell the cheap shit everywhere. Whenever I see someone buying cheap meat in front of me from places like Foster Farms, I immediately judge/look down on the person. I mean, just pay a few bucks extra to ensure the animal you are eating had at least some quality of life. Sheesh.

Honestly, it doesn't make a difference for their quality of life. The "better" meats usually come from animals that aren't given antibiotics and they're usually suffering pretty badly. It tastes better and it's better for you, but it doesn't matter for the animals.

>>193367
I don't understand why these people get so uppdity about this because at the end of the day these animals are still being killed which the animal doesn't like. If they're going to have this holier than thou attitude they should at least just stop eating meat.

Yeah I can see what you're trying to say. On one hand I wouldn't want to see the site turn into a kode with klossy meme because that's precisely what I'd like to avoid but on the other hand I really wish there was a serious board for programming. It would be interesting to see how a women majority site with STEM topics would go. That said, it was just a thought because with my current schedule and workload there's no way I could even start within two months.

> but that it's either going to attract normies who can't program and don't want to learn, or alt-right trolls DDoSing you because they think you're just another Karlie Kloss, or both.


Those are my fears. In any case, I will take your advice. I'll start a site with few girls from uni and see where it takes us.

> I think it's been done to death already, and by women who can't even program and are just jumping on the bandwagon for relevance and feminism points (see: Kode with Klossy. Gag.)


I really hate how they make it more difficult for women to be taken seriously, especially in this field. Though frankly I wouldn't have heard of kode with klossy if it weren't for imageboards and there are plenty of bad male programmers that are popular too.

I'm starting a CS degree in the fall. idk why but it's giving me a lot of anxiety thinking about it.

For those who're in progress/completed a degree, how much group work is there? I've had nothing but trash experiences and am 110% wary of them. Also, are the diversity memes real? I work at a tech start up rn and had a nonwhite male coworker rant at me about muh minorities in tech (i'm also not white). Having to listen to people ~confide~ in me about this stuff/the unicorn treatment is really tiresome.

Anyone use linux? What distro, and have any recommendations for beginners?
I am getting a new laptop soon that needs to stay Windows for school, but I want to try it out on my old one. I'm really interested in using more free/open source software and having more privacy. I was thinking of starting with Ubuntu or maybe Mint (also pretty interested in ricing and customization)

No. 193321

>>193302
I've got Arch on my PC and Fedora on a laptop right now. Haven't really played around much with Fedora yet though.

Ubuntu and Mint are definitely the best starting points I think. I'd say over the two Ubuntu is probably easier to use/more common and has more support.

>I don't know why a bunch of adults get together and plan such depressing films for kids. Shouldn't children be watching happy, feel-good films?

Consider that some kids don't grow up happy and feelgood because their home lives are chaotic. So films like Spirit (separation and abandonment), The Land Before Time (parental death), Babe (making purpose out of cruel circumstances), and Shrek (ugly people aren't always evil), are films whose morals relate to kids facing similar circumstances.
Films like Bambi, Dumbo, and The Lion King resonate with kids who had to learn how to grow up without parental figures. During WWII when Bambi and Dumbo were released, it wouldn't have been uncommon for children to have lost a parent.

A lot of this stuff is dark artistic expression for its own sake too.
Here's an interesting fact: In 1938, after Walt Disney had success with Snow White, he bought his mother and father a brand new home in Hollywood. Within the first month, his mother (Flora) reported problems with the furnace fumes. The problem was never properly fixed.
Shortly after living there his mother died by asphyxiation from the furnace fumes, and it made his father very ill.
Walt felt guilty the rest of his life. People speculate that the reason why there were so many Disney mother deaths in the 1940s was due in part to Walt trying to emotionally process the grief.
There are at least 22 Disney movies with absent or dead mothers.

I will agree, however, that some animated films were made with more mature audiences in mind. Like Antz.
I remember watching Antz when I was 8 or 9, but I knew it was more for adults and my mom only bought me that because she thought it was going to be like A Bug's Life.
Well, it wasn't. Lol. But I felt cool as a kid because it felt like I was watching something normally forbidden. It's probably why I'm a desensitized fuck these days.

Welp, I binge watched some of it and spoilt a bit of the ending for myself as well as watching the movie version but yeah, it's Utena. Hoooly fuck.

>>193092
I did say it was a hentai, upon rewatching it, yeah it's more porn with a backstory to string the sex scenes together. It's not the most offensive thing I've seen but I feel repulsed by it for some reason, or maybe I'm disgusted that someone had this on TV with a toddler in the fucking room. That begs the question, what channel would let this even be broadcast, especially in the UK in the 90s? Or was it a shitty VHS? I will never know.

All Dogs Go To Heaven is fucking torturous. I don't think I could watch it again but it ripped my heart out. Especially messed with me since I had a basset hound and a german shepherd. If I'd see it on tv when flipping channels I'd end up watching but it'd destroy me. Even worse now knowing the voice actress of the little girl was murdered by her father I think before the movie was even finished (the same girl who voiced Ducky in land before time, mentioned earlier in the thread)

Oliver and Company is another one that fucked me up but I ended up watching it quite a lot. I always felt bad for the evil dogs who die at the end.

Idk guys maybe it's because I'm from Germany and we had some fucked up stories people would tell us as kids I mean look at Grimm's fairytail; the original ones tho not thay disney shit or pic related is a book I used to read. They basically told you if kids don't stop sucking their thumps some creap will cut it off or Max and Moritz another good example.
Anyways most movies were not scary at all for me or my friends (at least the ones you mentioned so far).
Now that I look back some are fucking creepy but as a child I was scared for a second sure, but not my whole life.

I'm a man, and i began balding when i was 18, and now, being 20, i have a massive receding hairline and a huge bald spot on the back of my head. Since this has begun happening i have found it harder and harder to find women who are interested in me, so i'd like your opinions on this.

How can a man go bald gracefully? Is a bald head a big disadvantage at my age?

I know many on here don't appreciate male posters but i'd really appreciate getting some opinions on this that don't come from friends who worry too much about insulting me

pic related is quite similar to my current situation(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

Sage because dead thread, but nah I don't particularly care what fatties blame their fatness on, their fatness is their problem not mine. What I meant is that fat people are not attractive because they are unhealthy, and don't have good genetic material as a potential mother/father to your children. Same goes for baldys, their's is inarguably entirely genetic, whereas fatties are unhealthy and less likely to be fertile or produce healthy/ideal children. Duh.

Anyway RIP thread hope you find a solution to your problem, OP.

This is probably a really stupid question but how do I be more like those girls on Instagram and social media who are just uniform beautiful? Perfect eyebrows and somehow perfect fashion sense, you could even count the whole basic bitch thing but I'm hoping someone knows what I mean. How do I be more like the majority of the girls I see on the street with perfect clothes and hair and bodies?

I'm 22 and feel pretty much like Tomoko Kuroki in comparision. I'm very short and curvy, but my height and baby face make me feel like I stand no chance and I have no clue where to go for makeup or fashion resources that these girls all learn from and perfect.

I really want to finally feel more like a pretty young woman, anyone got any resources or tips?

4chan is teenagers all trying to fit into a certain culture, it's not full grown people expressing their honest heartfelt beliefs.

I remember /fit/ did a survey once, and a good 40% were under 16 (and of course like 60% were above 6'3), barely any were above 21.

You're not exclusively attracted to male models (who don't look as good in real life either), and neither are men. Sure, there's stupidly good looking people out there that people talk about as far as their looks go more often, but there's lots of people who aren't that exceptionally good looking who are still attractive.

Stop looking to 4chan for your idea of what men are really like, because not only are they not like that in real life, but they're not even men. I fucking 100% guarantee to you that if you find a healthier forum to spend your time on, or just generally try to cut your time on 4chan way, way down to like an hour a day, you'll feel much better within a month. It happens to guys there sometimes as well, the attitude on certain boards that you're only good looking if you're a 6'2+ model with an insanely good body all the time is incredibly unhealthy, and it's the same thing you're struggling with now, just with less "CHAD eats PIZZA every night while YOU spend hours COUNTING CALORIES and still don't look as good as HIM" shit.

And please, go see a therapist, you've clearly got huge self esteem issues that like I said, are bordering on dysmorphic.

Anyone else have extreme male envy? Not in a "men are priveliged i want it too reee" but as in i hate being born with this hole between my legs. I hate being viewed as less competent and i hate that the majority of people (usually subconcious) hate women in some way, myself included. I wish i could love women and be proud of my gender but it's hard when all i hear of is the revolutionary males in science, philosophy etc. And when most men regarded as historically brilliant think they "have no capability to think complex thoughts" and are "lesser men" it really makes the gears grind.

Not to mention being physically weaker. I get so mad everytime i'm reminded i have to work 4x as hard to even get nearly as strong as a normal guy. A guy could fucking murder me without any tools if he wanted to (they probably want to), and i hate it. I'm relatively buff (for a woman xdxdxd) and always carry some kind of weapon (not guns, illegal), but i'm still paranoid. I wish i was born with an extra Y-chromosome.

meh, with the internet logging and sharing the entire knowledge of humanity's billions, we're soon going to make intelligence obsolete. We have 8 billion people all working to increase humanity's knowledge. There are literally millions of people with genius level IQs who compete to make breakthroughs which contribute to society. But once nature has been tamed, what do you do then? We're practically there already. Average people feel like they can't make contributions that really improve people's lives through technological innovation. We have a culture of meaningless consumerism, everyone's intellect just goes towards figuring out how to market the next big fad that will add small amounts of meaningless pleasure to the person's life, just one more quick fix before they crave another.

Machines will continue to compensate for the failings of stupid people and allow them to live happy lives, intelligent people will be left looking for meaningful problems to solve with their intellect and finding nothing as AI become more adept at solving these problems than they are. The average person continuing to increase in intelligence would be an increasing existential threat because we know there are certain technologies that can literally wipe out all life on the planet, and the odds that someone with the ability to manufacture these technologies and the motive and ability to use them will arise in the general population grows larger the smarter the general population becomes.

I don't agree with the robot in the slightest here, don't get me wrong, but the issues with Japans birthrate are more widespread than just economic.

There's a huge amount of mental illness and suicide amongst young people, and the whole "herbivore men" thing is somewhat of an issue over there, though the shit that's causing that is so, so much more extreme than what happens in the west that any comparison is just stupid.

The idea that if they don't get exceptional grades and get into top level tertiary education that they're failures is a pretty big issue, and their education system encourages that, putting a stupid amount of stress on kids.
