It's that time of year again! When all us absolute geeks dress up like our favorite (or most resembled) characters from our common cultural background of dragon ball z, video games, and internet culture! In accordance with the season and the complete lack of appreciation most non-Howlers have for DBZ , internet, and vidya costumes (read:cosplay)I propose we have our own costume party ! Let's make merry and get not!wasted together and enjoy our beautiful "community"! I may be able to talk my flatmates into not hating a party at my place, or if there's anyone else who wants to host, that's cool, too!
>>8804 I remember on the Colbert Report, one of the guests was discussing different conditions in the womb as potentially causing certain physical characteristics and homosexuality. Notably IIRC left-handedness which occurs at a far higher rate in homosexual men. The main issue that they discussed was the fact that certain groups consider sexuality an "identity" and that they lobby against science which could eliminate that identity; e.g. if scientists discovered a biological cause of Gender Dysphoria, they could treat it medically, thus eliminating trans identity (and a lot of existential suffering, too, but that's unimportant to the LGBT community or their official 'representatives').

>>8700 Pick a time you're not busy. Ideally evenings since classes are daytime, yo. Pick a place as well I will then meet you at this place at the designated time We'll be friends, too. Just you wait. p p p p The p's are an accident, that's just how I get my words to submit without actually writing more Also I'm busy this weeknd, weekday hangs are the coolest of fruits
>had to lie to my RA because I didn't want to tell him that I don't have any friends on campus the loneliness is starting to really get to me. I guess we can do some sort of meetup this week if people are still willing to (I was busy pretty much all last week). I honestly have no clue why I have so much trouble making friends here, it was never really a problem for me in the past.

Dear Cassanovanon. Parkinson's Bro here. Bad jokes and a subtle snarky bio got me half a dozen matches and two dates. So again, Big McThankies from McSpankie's
>>8777 good job! and even if the dates don't go well, keep trying I scored a date last night at the last minute and she wants a second date for friday
>>8778 lol jk I'm giving up on women until I level up into silver fox mode >pic related, me circa 2045 I realised I was being strung along by my abnormally high libido was settling for less than I deserve And then that I'll deserve more as I keep exercising and building myself up. The fact that male and female value is so incongruent (resources v. youth respectively) means there's literally no incentive for trying for a relationship ATM. I'll wait till after I'm out of school, /fit/, and generally more focused.

>>8764 >old losers on campus today's open house; not parent's day, though you get the same proportion of people on-campus who don't know what's going on It's endearing though; I stayed in one of the labs on Centennial and told people about the EE / CPE program we have
shit was cash
>>8765 Ok, but every single weeknd isn't open house, yet at least one day a week is some stupid event for boomers. (when did we start calling x-ers and millennials boomers?). btw What is wrong with Rallee's water supply? I can't even make unsweet tea in a triply-cleaned jug without getting mold in it within 3 days. It should take about a full week for that to happen to sweet tea and maybe even 2x as long for unsweet. Seriously wtf?
>>8760 I feel your pain OP i just want some decent food options on centennial :(
Cosplay/Halloween Ideas I need help, /ncsu/, what should I cosplay? I need to start buying things ASAP if I want to have something decent by the 31st. So far I've got: >Ouran High School Host club (any character, I have a baby-blue blazer, but I've done this cosplay already) >Young Joseph Joestar (I'm about part 5 /fit/ w/out the perfect abs) >Gene Starwind (getting old, I doubt even weebs will understand the reference) >Aleph from SMT2 (but I'd feel disingenuous since I haven't finished the game) >Snake (would be an excuse to buy a gun and get a concealed carry license, but of course, money) The last actually --wait, no, I've done a few cool ones. I did the Demi-fiend which was pretty decent, but annoying because body paint can get on stuff/smudge, the invisible man (which was hot as balls), and Rintarou Okabe complete with lab coat and Dr. Pepper.
What are y'all howlan boys gonna do for Halloween? BTW personally, I wanna spend as little money as possible on my costume. For young JOJO, I just need the scarf (~$20) a blank tank, some blue jeans (which I need to buy anyway), and costume boots. For Gene, I'd need to do something for the gloves, belts, & boots, plus makeup for the tatoo and scars. Aleph could be easy if not for the shades. >>>/watch?v=84Ok6fAq0cY
