Re: 1807: "Listening"

(though really, I am sure it is more about data analysis/collection than hardware capabilities)?

Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

So as it turns out, Victoria's Secret employees are significantly better at bra fitting than I am. Some combination of that + body shape changes since I last went bra shopping means that I'm now wearing a 34D instead of a 36A, and as it turns out that's significantly more comfortable. >_> I blame br...

Can anyone think of any other games with a good story that can be played multiplayer? Something like Borderlands or Synergy for HL2. Ideally not expensive, and it doesn't have to be an FPS. If you're willing to really go elsewhere genre-wise, Divinity: Original Sin can be played as 2-person coop an...

Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQA Thread - Queer Support!

It can be hard to notice changes in yourself, since you see yourself in a mirror relatively frequently and thus incremental changes are harder to see.

For someone who sees you infrequently, gradual changes can be easier to notice.
