      Hello everyone,   As promised, we're working on some changes to improve the forum and community! So far, here are the recent changes: Negative reputation has been disabled. Upvoting remains intact. This is a trial run to deal with whiteknights brigading certain topics and salty users mass-downvoting users they disagree with. Some text formatting options have been removed. Some users like to format their posts in ways that make them harder to read or downright obnoxious. (Light colors, tiny fonts, etc), so this helps make threads more readable. If you find yourself needing post formatting because you're making a new thread, please contact a mod and we will make it happen. New threads have to be approved anyway, so you're not going to have to start out with an ugly thread. Text formatting remains available to all users who have supported us via Patreon.No more threads on "Online Personalities". We will NOT lock or remove old threads, but we won't approve new threads about people who don't have any history of drama or controversies. Some threads will be moved to the snowflake sections if applicable. Read the new topic guidelines before you make a new thread.Here are our works in progress: New categories will be added. "Little Snowflakes" is too broad of a spectrum, so we're going to sort our flakes into a few sub-sections to keep things organized. We will also make more use of tags for those flakes who transcend categories. This will also allow us to appoint moderators to specific categories or snowflakes. New moderators will be onboarded soon.

    So because other groups are also problematic no one can criticize bts on its own?... sorry but I fail to see the logic.

    It's a matter of being hypocritical.  They have a targeted message and a unifcef campaign that are at complete odds with everything Saudi Arabia is at the moment.  Last time I checked these two particularities applied to them only.

    funny how bts has that unicef campaign... also funnier that the leg is speak yourself which ... oh wait you can't do that in saudi arabia.
    even nicki minaj (an overall problematic person) pulled out of her saudi concert.  
    i guess money speaks louder than morals...

    omg yess!!! Does anyone else remember Kaikan Phrase?  It was so popular over 15 years ago but I swear the author always had the same story lines where the girl was in an abusive relationship and the male lead was an absolute asshole - of course we were supposed to swoon over his treatment of the heroine but wtf....
    the anime version toned down a lot of the abuse but it was still implied (the music was good tho)
    The japanese live action was pretty good imo but it's quite old.  They also made a korean remake but I think it flopped so they didn't bother with a second season.  It's such a pity because the whole premise of the manga is so good...

    (manhwa) Hwang Mi Ri may be seen as trashy by some but I absolutely love her earlier works - around 2000 to 2008, that's when her storylines were the most diverse.
    Liar Game is also terribly underrated even though it is definitely up there with Death Note.

  5. Omega3 added a post in a topic People's experience in driving/being a learner driver   

    Where do I even start... this is probably the biggest failure in my life.  Don't get me wrong, I know how to drive, but because my country is so fucking corrupted I failed my practical test 3 times (because I didn't bribe the police that was overseeing the exam).  I'm very bitter about that.  I learnt manual, not automatic though, and now since I'm moving countries again I'm hoping that luck will be in my favour and I will finally pass it.

  6. Omega3 added a post in a topic Plastic Surgery Experience Thread   

    I had my surgery on the 1st of July - I was extremely nervous about it.  I went for consult a couple of times and the doctor recommended I get a closed rhinoplasty with local anesthetic since I did not have a deviated septum or any other complications.  He also said it's better for the recovery time and in terms of the strain it puts on the body.  I went to the doctor and told him generally what I wanted, but he took one look at my nose and he knew exactly what needed to be done.  He shaved off my dorsal hump, heightened the tip and took out some cartilage so that the nose seems smaller and a little bit upturned.  Basically, I just wanted a smaller nose because growing up my dad and cousin teased me about it so much that I developed a huge complex, which is funny because even the doctor told me I did not have a big nose.
    The day of the surgery comes - I have general anxiety by the way and was of course terrified.  I was given a Xanax as a sedative and then I was taken to the surgery room where the doctor administered the local anesthesia.  To be honest, that was the only painful moment of the whole surgery and I teared up a little.  I spent the entire time talking about medicine with the doctor and the nurse since I am in a related field.  Time passed super quickly.  I was told at the end that the surgery took about 1 hour and a quarter.  There were only a couple odd instances I would say - when he was hammering my bone and afterward when he was trying to break it so the nose would be a little narrower.  Apparently, my bones were unexpectedly sturdy so a second surgeon had to come in and they both tried for about 3 times on each side to break the bones.  To do that they had to press on my face pretty hard for them to break - truthfully I was kinda cheering them on hoping to hear the pop and it just wouldn't come.  
    The shaving of the dorsal hump took most of the time, he did everything else at the tip super quickly and stitched me up.  I was then bandaged and taken to a waiting room to be monitored for a few hours.  I was under the impression I would go home immediately, and as such kept on asking when I would go home.  Fortunately, I did not bleed a lot during the surgery and I was surprisingly spry so they sent me home after an hour. 
    Now the recovery.  I had nasal packing for two days, which was awful because I hate breathing through my mouth (right now I have a sore throat because of that).  Sleep was bad for the first couple of days, I had to sleep semi-sitting up.  I did not bruise at all.  I had some swelling the second day, but not very bad and they gave me a shot for it.  The third day I was like new in terms of swelling - no bruising.  
    On the 3rd of July, they finally removed my nasal packing and god... Everywhere I read everyone was saying how much it hurt.  Please don't believe that.  I went there scared for my life and literally 2 seconds later I was asking the doctor if that was all.  No pain whatsoever.  After the nasal packing was removed I could breathe through my nose but it was still hard (and it still is not 100% fine).
    On the 5th, I went in for the big reveal and to change my bandages.  No bruising, but nose was swollen af.  Still, the result was visible.  I absolutely loved the new shape, the profile was amazing.  The front of the nose was a bit too swollen for me to get an idea but I still liked it. I do have to say I was probably the most nervous for this day because I'm incredibly picky and I was terrified I would not like the new nose.  So far that has not been the case.
    In another two days I'm going to remove the bandages (I think permanently this time) and also remove the stitches.  I will update with how my nose looks like then. If anyone wants to see my daily evolution dm me.  As a bonus, you can see the bones/cartilage they took out under the spoiler (don't look if you don't like that kind of stuff) because I wouldn't have missed for anything having my own bones as souvenirs.

    I finally went and did it!!  If anyone wants a detailed account of my rhinoplasty experience (with a local anesthetic) please let me know, would be more than happy to share.  I am now 7 days post op and it's great!  Definitely recommend local anesthesia instead of general, even though it may seem daunting at first!

    this has been on my mind for so long but.... some people hype up idols' looks so much it's insane.  Besides some truly unique and strikingly beautiful idols (which to be honest aren't that many, maybe one per group if even) most idols nowadays look kinda average.  And by average I mean that if they weren't wearing their stage costumes/make-up no one would do a double take on them.

  9. Omega3 added a post in a topic Sissel AB   

    i agree, also her skin looks very bad.  I am very curious as to why she was there in the first place.  The girl from Iran could at least string some sentences in korean albeit very simple but when sissel was asked she quickly switched to english... I mean really? The question was so generic I'm sure she could have at least memorised a phrase in korean besides her intro...
    from what i've seen she seems to have lost some weight, it's just that her bone structure is big so no matter how skinny she is (i don't think she's fat or chubby by any means) she will look bigger.  She's also pretty tall, so compared to most koreans she will look bigger.

    this screams stupid... which means they most likely sent it to themselves.
    They are twins... identical twins.  How can just one of them look like someone while the other doesn't... the logic is baffling.

  11. Omega3 added a post in a topic What's in your bag?   

    The bag I always end up carrying everywhere is a Goyard pm tote - I really need all the space, and I'm quite ocd when it comes to the things I need in my bag.
    -hand fan
    -bottle of water
    -wallet 
    -pouch with make-up (lipgloss, 2 or 3 lip balms and a mirror)
    -pouch with medicine (from anxiety meds to cold meds to band-aids and allergy meds)
    -portable charger
    -the bag's pochette that's always there and is always full with anxiety meds
    -sunglasses
    -hand sanitizer
    -face mask
    -deodorant
    -perfume
    -napkins
    -notebook
    -pens/pencils
    -gum
    Depending on the weather forecast I'll add an umbrella or a jacket. 
    If by chance I need to take a smaller bag with me, I'll always have a smaller pouch of meds, lip balms, portable charger, mini water bottle, gum, and napkins.

    finally decided to get my nose done too.  Have been to the consult already and looking to schedule the surgery in a couple of weeks.  It's going to be a closed rhinoplasty with a local anesthetic.  I'm very happy but anxious because well... I have anxiety and local anesthetic won't help with that.

  13. Omega3 added a post in a topic Kpop scandals   

    Agreed.  I bet a lot of idols/artists with hectic schedules are at least casually doing coke.  At the end of the day, it's all about 1. who gets caught, 2. who pays for scandals to disappear and 3. in whose interest some of these scandals are when they do see the light of the day.
    While I agree that drugs are illegal in Korea and that it is treated as a very serious offense, you would be surprised just how many people still do them (depends on your friend circle).  
    Wanting to do acid is definitely not a crime, and he definitely sounded very eager and without much information.  While I don't condemn him for that (or drugs in general), acid can have severe side effects for people who already suffer from mental health (I've personally seen people have a psychotic breakdown because of LSD and you wouldn't believe what happened to them).

    is it just me or does she look extremely different in these teaser pics? I wouldn't have recognized her if her name wasn't plastered on it.  Even between the first and second pic, it's like it's two different people.

  15. Omega3 added a post in a topic Michelle Moé   

    armys proving once again they have a mob mentality...
    One thing that's always stuck with me is that people throw insults when they are powerless (and frustrated) to do anything else.  It's clear there is a sense of jealousy there.  Not the biggest fan of Michele but admittedly, she is very talented.  Just because she doesn't like the fandom or she's not over the top with her reactions does not mean she can't be enjoying the show.  
    They are entitled to criticize her content as it is public, but throwing jabs at her appearance is really not it.
