    [–] Fuck you, I'm smart. Electricspiral 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Fuck them, you're smart. Do you have the free time to put in extra hours of studying? It would be priceless to see his face when you end up with better grades than him in both physics and math.

    [–] My sisters are forcing me to get a $2,500 payday loan Electricspiral 2 points ago in personalfinance

    Okay, so my first thought is that you should try to find out whether their claims are true; did they want you to give them the money directly? If so, that's a big red flag. If it is true, see if there are any last-minute renegotiations your mom can make in the payment agreement. She might be able to get more time to pay it off.

    My second thought is that you shouldn't feel the least bit bad; you are not responsible for anyone's financial status but your own. When people are trying to make you feel bad for being financially responsible, they aren't really someone who deserves access to your finances in any way.

    Did your mom ask you at all? Can you ask her for more information on the matter? I would highly recommend seeing if the bank can work with her on extending her payment period just a bit longer.

    In my opinion it looks more like he didn't have quiiiiiiiite enough traction and slipped, but I can't say for sure

    [–] Anyone know somewhere that i can get jeans like this? Preferably available in tall and ships to the UK. Xoxo gossip girl Electricspiral 3 points ago in fashionadvice

    If it is, u/BillyJoelNotMyLover would need to look for a slightly-loose straight/slim leg in an acid/bleach wash, and roll the cuffs by about the length of a thumb. The rolled cuffs can be done by hand, so it's really just looking for the fit and color, and a skinny leg wouldn't provide the relaxed fit. If there are pants with the right fit but they aren't the right color, there are jean bleaches and dyes available.

    [–] Highschooler intrested in fashion Electricspiral 1 points ago in fashionadvice

    Well, you could start an Instagram dedicated to fashion. You don't even need a lot of followers - just post about trends you like, clothing you want, clothing you have, what stars are wearing, etc... whatever you want to make it about. Just focus on learning fashion and design terms.

    Look into becoming a personal stylist. I'm not sure what steps to take there. There might be classes available, or you might not need classes.

    See if there are any fashion & design colleges that you could attend. I know you said you don't want to design, but having that background will definitely help you. You don't even need to major in design; just one or two classes to help you develop a stronger sense of how clothes come together. There might even be a program to train personal stylists with job placement included in that.

    In the meantime, try to get a job at a clothing shop if you can. This will help you keep your finger on the pulse of what's new; either the store will rotate their stock to reflect the newest styles, or if it's a smaller shop, you can look through the magazines that wholesalers send out to their buyers. I work at a boutique, and not only has it made me more fashion-literate, but I've been able to predict some trends just by looking through the catalogues my boss gets.

    If you're not already doing this, see if any of your friends will let you be their personal stylist for a day or something. Even if you don't want to be a stylist, this is still good practice for getting a feel of how clothing fabric and structures will look on different body types.

    Good luck with your journey, and I hope this helped!

    [–] What type of top should I pair with these loose fitting pants. (They are dark olive green) Electricspiral 1 points ago in fashionadvice

    Well, a form-fitting tee would look good. White, gray, cream, whatever color you think looks good with the pants. Olive green is a good color for pairing with others.

    You could also pair it with a crop top and some funky jewelry. With the style these pants are, you could go with almost any neckline; a boat neck would make them feel a little Parisian and romantic, or a loose crop top with a cut out neckline would be cute over a tank top.

    My general rule of thumb is that if you're going to wear a looser item of clothing, pair it with a more figure-hugging item. There are exceptions, but that all depends on personal taste.

    Also, these pants would look so cute with patterns. What kinds of shirts did you have in mind for the pants?

    No, you were pedantic because you like to be right and want to show how much smarter you are by insisting on correcting something that didn'r need correction. Then, to top it off, you proceeded to double down on your stupid pedantic antics. I highly doubt you were genuinely coming from a place of wanting to educate others.

    And you clearly are just digging in your heels instead of actually reading my reply. Or do you just regularly stick your head up your ass and dig further when challenged on what you are so convinced you know?

    If you don't understand why you're wrong about insisting that there's only one way to use the word theory, then you're beyond help. The way that theory was used in the first comment you replied to was a perfectly acceptable way to use it; but instead of recognizing that and dropping the matter altogether, you went on to keep defending a point that only you see significance in. My God, what an insufferable ass you must be to talk to in person.

    It's also defined as "an idea used to account for a situation or justify a course of action" as in, "my theory is that you're an intolerable ass that needs to be right about everything, which is why you're haranguing people about not using 'theory' in the strictest scientific sense." Funny how words can have more than one strict meaning, isn't it?

    I'd imagine a catfisher with the right connections/skills could photoshop the randomly generated face onto images of real people to make it seem like the fake person is actually real and active
