    Smart Home Technologies

    Do you have any smart home related technologies set up in your home? Do you find them to be good value for money or not worth the investment? If you don’t have any, which would you like to have?

    What kind of mouse and keyboard are you using in your set up? I just have an original Apple Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard at the moment which work fine but aren't the most comfortable to use. Since I'll be upgrading my computer soon I'd like to see what people have (and whether or not the...

    Nintendo How often do you play your Switch using the dock?

    For those of us who have a Nintendo Switch (non-lite) console: how often do you play in handheld mode and how often with the dock? I have found that I very rarely use the dock when playing mine. Probably only around five percent of the time I use the dock where as the rest I use when I am...

    Who's your favourite town resident so far? Are there any who you are trying to get on your island? For me the favourite so far is Kyle, he has a pretty cool personality and style. He's so animated and charismatic.

    How Important is Replay Value?

    When buying games how important is their replayability/replay value to you? For me it does not matter so much. I generally don't even have enough time to play all the games that I want to even once so it is very rare for me to play games more than once other than a select few that give me...

    Gaming Groups Changes

    There have recently been some discussions about how we should be handling gaming groups. I've created this thread as suggested by @Spirit in another thread regarding the Animal Crossing Forum so that there is a clear place for discussion on it as there are quite a few points that go into it and...

    Popular Things You Find Unnecessary or Don't 'Get'

    What are some popular things you don't use, or just don't understand? For me watches has always been one. I don't see the point of paying a load of money for some annoying piece of metal on my wrist which does things that my phone already does for me. I also don't really 'get' tablets unless...

    Do you wear glasses?

    I recently had my eyes tested as I have noticed that over the past few months one has seemed slightly blurry. The optometrist said that I should try out glasses for a few months and see how I feel when we next check back and so far they've seemed to help quite significantly. I've never worn...

    What's something "childish" that you still do?

    What things that some would consider childish do you still do? I have a bunch of plushies on my bed. I mainly acquired them by winning claw machine games and they're kinda comfy to have around so I just keep them lined up on the side of my bed (against the wall) since I don't really have...

    How’s Your Tech Upgrade Cycle?

    How often to you upgrade your phones, computers, tablets, etc? (Purchase a newer version, not upgrade software) I generally keep each phone for three or four years before upgrading to a new one. I find it to be an excessive waste of money to upgrade every year. I used to purchase two year...

    Can You/Do You Swim?

    Do you know how to swim? Do you enjoy it and often get the chance to do it? The hot weather lately has got me thinking it is about time for me to go swimming again soon. I very much enjoy swimming (both at the beach and in a pool) but haven't been out to do it in months. I can't swim at a...

    First/Business Class

    I’ve done quite a bit of flying over the last few years but I have never escaped the economy cabin. Of course, being able to fly economy at all in the first place is a huge privilege but you can’t help but be at least a little jealous when walking past those people at the front of the plane...

    USA Raising Federal Tobacco Purchasing Age to 21

    Source. The federal age for purchasing tobacco products in the USA will be raised to 21 years old in summer 2020. What do you think about this policy? I personally hate smoking and my immediate emotional response would be that it should just be banned for everyone but in reality that just...

    Gen 8 Sword and Shield Shiny Encounters

    Have you encountered any shiny Pokémon yet in Sword or Shield? Which ones and how did you get them? Also, what do you think about the new “square shiny” type? I have not yet encountered any myself. I don’t see having two different types of shiny Pokémon as necessary but I don’t really think...

    Sword & Shield’s Exp Share

    In Sword and Shield the option not to use Exp Share has been removed. How do you feel about this? Do you feel like this makes the game too easy or just removes unnecessary grinding time? I personally don’t mind Exp Share always being on but it would be nice to be able to turn it off for those...

    Lease or Own?

    For a while now there has been a move away from buying toward leasing a license to view digital content and the same can be said for hardware - with more recently Apple considering iPhone hardware subscriptions to consumers directly. Do you prefer this type of model or would you rather own your...

    Console Colouring Preferences

    When you purchase a console do you prefer lighter or darker consoles? Perhaps you have a certain colour you like the most or you might just always hold out for some limited edition before making the purchase? I like darker consoles personally.

    What did you once think you would never do, but you do now?

    I feel like this thread is titled poorly... What things did you flat out refuse to do, or think you would never do in the past that you do now? For me, before I turned 18 I thought I would never drink alcohol but on my 18th birthday I tried it and since then I drink it at most social...

    Have You Ever Had Something Stolen From You?

    Has someone ever stolen something from you? Perhaps they took it directly from you or broke in to your home while you were out for the day. What did they take and did you ever see it again?

    Headphones vs Earphones

    Do you prefer to listen to music (or whatever else) via earphones or headphones? Which type do you use? I've always been an earphone person, I just find headphones bulky and generally uncomfortable. Earphones are always much easier to take on the go too. I've always found the Apple earphones...

    Can You Sleep on an Airplane?

    Are you able to get some precious shut-eye during your flights or is the discomfort of the seating generally too much for you to even get a wink? Perhaps you can get only a little? For me, I've only ever flown in economy class so my experience is limited to that. I've rarely been able to get...

    Do You Eat 3 Meals Per Day?

    In most places around the world the three main meals each day are Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Do you usually eat all three or do you often skip a meal? I generally skip breakfast because I hate waking up early and want to sleep in as long as possible. Thus, I'll maybe have a banana once I get...

    Shower: Morning and/or Night?

    Do you take a shower after waking up, before bed, or maybe both? I almost always shower twice per day. I can't wake up properly without having a shower, but on the other hand I feel gross going to bed without having one too. So both it is! (if you take a bath, then that also counts)

    How often do you backup the data on your phones, computers, or other devices? I generally back up my phone and my laptop once a week at the least. I've never had to use it so far but it is nice to have the piece of mind that I have a second copy if I'll need it.

    Do You Care About Your Family History/Ancestors?
