In my backpack in a Tupperware container. Then it got confiscated on my way into Block Party. (I hardly ever got to concerts like that, and for some reason I thought they were just searching for booze.)

Oops. Sorry for the double comment.

Very surprised by these comments. I was expecting a one sentence response from Dan. Something along the lines of "You're overreacting" or "Get over it."

As Dan said, the line between erotica and porno is so blury it's hard to really see he did anything that wrong.

"The benefits of 4k and 8k are marginal at best. You have to sit unrealistically close to see the full detail and you need 4k source material, which is virtually non-existent."

All I see here is another nonsensical excuse for childish name calling. Is anyone who takes a stand against political Islam a racist is your book, Charles?
Mar 10 Greenwood commented on Watch Hillary Clinton Lecture Us All on the Importance of Email Privacy—Hahaha.
Please, go get drunk or stoned or just do something that doesn't involve putting this imbicillic drivel online.

This Autism Think Tank group sounds sketchy to me. These groups advocating so-called biomedical treatments for autism are using junk science to prey on gullible and desperate parents.. See the excellent book Autism's False Prophets by Paul Offit.

@41: I have no interest in listening to high end turntables. I'm well-educated in this subject, and I understand that lossless digital formats are superior in every way that is measurable, i.e. every parameter to measure sound engineers have devised.

I'm sorry if you think I'm nay-saying. I actually do think there are plenty of things that make a difference. For example, room acoustics and room treatments. So-called audiophiles obsess over miniscule differences in THD that couldn't possibly be audible, and then ignore gigantic holes in their frequency response or room resonance that could be addressed relatively cheaply using room treatments and a $100 calibration microphone.

@37: Think about the engineering and manufacturing costs that goes into a car. Not that I would ever pay 30k for a car, but it's rather easy for most people to imagine how a car could be worth 30k. Think about what a turntable is. A 100+ year old technology that's been essentially the same since the '70s at least. There is just no reason related to sound quality why that turntable should cost more than a few hundred.

Why then do individuals indoctrinated into the audiophile mindset fork out sometimes thousands of dollars for a product that is that is in no way superior from a sound quality perspective? The answer is that there is a defect in our brains labeled confirmation bias. We are especially susceptible to this through our hearing. See the following video for more info:
