I got the diagnosis when I was 25. I had no idea and my friends and family had no idea. If anything it has made me more calm. But I only have a mild degree of the syndrome.

Something on the NES. I don't know which since I got a used NES with a dozen games so I'm not sure which I put in first.

I'm close with my mom and my uncle's side of the family because I grew up with them. My uncle and my mom shared a house that was big enough for two familys so we had the upper floor and they had the first floor. But besides that I'm not close to them. I've never met most of the people on dads side in fact I've not seen my dad in 10 years and my aunt's family live far away (by Swedish standards. It is not as big of a country as the US but here 300km is considered far away) so I see them once every few years.

I eat youghurt and cereal and I of course finish any youghurt left. Here in Sweden it is common to eat cereal with youghurt or with something we call "fil" which is basically a very sour non sweet version of youghurt. I've not eaten milk and cereal since I was a kid but I used to finish the milk.

Many JRPGs when you get to the town with snow. For example FF7 (that snowboard town). Star Oocean 2 (don't remember the name of the town). I love the look of those snow towns in JRPG's. Almost every JRPG have one.

The standards for video games gets higher each year. You don't notice it much year by year but go back a few years and you can clearly notice a difference and I don't just mean graphically. Gameplay and controls are being improved a little bit every year. It is not that you remember wrong it's just that you have played more modern games. Sure there are games that hold up but a lot of it is nostalgia. Very few older games are great even if you play them for the first time. Especially 3D games as it took a while for developrs to make good controls. The PS1 era is mostly shit when it comes to controls. Even great games like MGS doesn't have very good controls and that is one of the best ones. Even PS2 era was not great but a lot better. It wasn't until PS3/360 era that games got really good controls. Look at Tomb Raider as an example. The PS1 games feel like trying to control a tank. It wasn't until Tomb Raider Legend that I felt like I was in actual control over Lara.

Most surround recievers have this setting. Large speakers meen floor standing speakers. Floor standing speakers have base as well as mid range and trebble while a bookshelf speaker have just mid range and trebble.

Personally I use these

@dafdiego777: I'm in the same boat. 3570K OC and a GTX 1070. I upgraded my GPU and I I can play anything. I don't feel like my CPU is holding me back much. Sure a 7700K will help but the cost of new memory, motherboard and CPU for a 5-10% increase is not worth it. Meanwhile I spend 400 euro on a 1070 and got more than double the performance of my old AMD 280X.

I was around 20 the first time I heard that some people considered Sunday to be the first day of the week. I've never seen a calandar here in Sweden that starts on Sunday. Like many things though it depends on where you live. Just like how some countries use pounds instead of kilos or stones if you are British. There is no right answer. the system you are used to will always seem more right to you. Somehow to some people the imperial system makes sense even though there is nothing smaller than an inch which leads to crazy things like 1/12 of an inch insetad of just using mm or if you need something smaller than a mm you can use micro meter or nano meter etc you never have to have 3/4 of a cm and everything is based on 10 instead of 12 inches being a feet and 4 feet being a yard or whatever it is.

Keep in mind that if you work in the service industry you often have to be nice to the costumers. Often it doesn't mean anything. But I get the feeling the way you describe the situation that she really likes you. Ask her out sometime when there aren't a lot of people waiting behind you so you can take more time.
