2022.01.26 18:11 Expert-Union-6083 How are you?
The question derived from previous post. I'm Russian myself, anytime someone brings up the discussion on "How are you?" being a form of a greeting and not a literal question - it puzzles me.
For one thing the concept was explained in "Brat 2" movie over 2 decades ago. Has been ridiculed by Zadornov for a while. And keep coming up in every youtube video titled "10 cons of living in the US". Wasn't there enough time to connect the dots? Secondly, even in the movie it was actually insulting to intelligence to assume that Russian can not understand that words do not always have to be taken literally. Have you ever bitten a granite (грызли гранит) or have your arms ever walked (руки доходили)? Thirdly, i'm pretty sure Russians are able to read the context. While in Russia, have you ever been asked "Как дела?" by a guy you barely know, say at a new workplace? Did you let him in on your medical record? Furthermore, besides the context, tone needs to be considered, because "how are you?" can be a genuine inquiry.
How is this still considered a cultural barrier and why is this stereotype being perpetuated?

2022.01.26 18:11 WhyDidIDoThatMan420 Lips too wonky for lip flip??
So I went for a consultation today and he told me that my lips are too lopsided for a lip flip? And that filler would probably make them look ducky bc of their size. They’re not like nonexistent I do have visible lips but they do disappear when I smile/talk. Just wondering if anyone else heard this?

2022.01.26 18:11 RachelC24 Rachel / Rebecca Confusion
My name is Rachel however when people first meet me, they usually call me Rebecca until I correct them enough times (since as long as I remember, infant school, until now, 25). I find this very weird as my parents were thinking of naming me Rachel or Rebecca. Has anyone else had something similar? Does anyone know why this could be happening? Freaks me out a little! 🤣

2022.01.26 18:11 starliiiiiights Unsure of how to react to what my [20F] boyfriend [21M] did UPDATE
You can find my original post on my profile
I did talk to him, at first he seemed taken aback and said it didn’t seem like that big of a deal, he didn’t realize I was uncomfortable and it’s different with couples (insinuating implicit consent which is mostly true). He also said we didn’t even do anything and asked if I was accusing him or something. That made me really upset so I explained to him that I wasn’t comfortable with him asking more than once and he seemed confused because we didn’t even do anything sexual and then he clarified that he asked a second time to clarify, because he wasn’t sure if my first answer was because i was nervous/tired (even tho it shouldn’t have mattered). He said that once I clarified he knew it was a no, and that he would never pressure me to do anything. He also apologized for making me uncomfortable. I told him that he shouldn’t ask more than once and even if I seem hesitant he should just lay off and he agreed. He also said he reacted badly at first because it caught him off guard, especially because I hadn’t said anything beforehand. I kind of wish he apologized immediately but he was caught off guard. I still don’t feel great but I’m clear on my expectations now, he thought it was different being a couple and I clarified my thoughts and he said he only asked twice to make sure (even tho i thought i was clear at first) then stopped when he knew for sure that I didn’t want to. I don’t feel great and wish he handled it more gently at first (i had to say a few times that i didn’t like that he was invalidating my feelings) but now we clarified and he knows my expectations for sure. his explanation was fine and he apologized so now we should be good. if he does it again it’ll be an issue

2022.01.26 18:11 numbers909 What makes Wes Anderson's style feel distinctly Wes Anderson?
The most distinct example of Wes' style is (in my own opinion) The Grand Budapest Hotel. His most recent movie, The French Dispatch, is a very close second.
I believe its because his style seems almost artificial, with shots being very "portrait" in a literal sense. Every shot is deliberate, with flat horizontal scenes and everything is placed for the sake of the camera. Its surreal, yet natural. As if the characters in the scenes are only animated when in the view of the camera.
And this is very literal to his narrative style, where his movies are meant to be told to the viewer. The Grand Budapest Hotel's premise is an older Zero telling the journalist a story. The Aquatic Life with Steve Zissou is a documentary. I believe he was aiming to film the movie as though the viewer is imagining the story as it is being told.
idk i could just be reading into it too much. love the movies :)

During the iconic “nobody wanted you on their team” moment Shawn and Jack are both eating. Jack is eating pie which is normal, but Shawn is eating a burger and fries…with a coffee? Has anyone here ever eaten a burger and washed it down with a coffee?? Who thought this was a good idea? Can anyone relate to this? Why not a fountain drink with ‘Cola’ plastered on the side?
