    Like McDonalds was when a friend lived in Russia for a year. A lot of weird meat(?) at local run places, but Micky D's tasted just like home.

    And Jif peanut butter was another thing that was much wanted, his wife sent 4 jars to him every other week. He got very popular with other US residents.

    peanut butter isn't a well understood concept outside of North America :)

    I know. I had neighbors who came from Australia to Las Vegas and the only one who would touch it, regardless of brand, was the younger of their two kids. She loved it and nagged her parents to buy different brands until she hit the right one. After a while, the older kid started eating it too, unless they "cracked" after I moved back east.

    I messed that up at the end, it should have said, and unless the parents "cracked" after I moved back east, they never did.

    Wow, peanut butter is a concept? Wish you'd have told me that in the 70s, man. Would have occupied me for hours.
    I started out with nothing and have most of it left.

    I was kind of shocked when I found out it wasn't a worldwide thing. About the only thing that would have upset me more than being allergic to PB was if I was allergic to burgers.

    Or does he sleep on a looong couch?
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    My son shared this twitter link; I thought this was excellent.
    My neighborhood in Montreal is installing trompe-l'œil sidewalks as a traffic calming measure.

    That is amazing, although I could see someone getting rear ended there :#
    Not Tom, or Trey, or Jim
    Main setup:
    Speakers are one of three, Mission Freedom 770 IV’s, Polk LSi25’s, or Polk SDA-CRS (stock XO, SL2000’s, Blade/Blade model). Electronics are as follows: for the LSi’s and SDA’s, a Technics SU-v75 acting as a phono preamp, into a Yamaha RX-v665, into a Crown XLi800 power amplifier. For the Missions, I have a Lafayette LR-1100. Turntable is a Technics SL-3200, with a Shure M97xE. Cables are generic/soon to be replaced garbage.
    An old post I found on AK, from 2013.
    I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.
