I have an Audio Technica LP60, which I WOULD NOT recommend. It's okay but is missing a lot of features that makes it a questionable choice in the long run. I plan on replacing it soon.

There are 2 turntables that I would recommend:

Audio Technica LP120 - this is the beefed up version of my turntable. All the features my turntable is missing are included here. My friend just got one of these and I am very impressed with it.

U-Turn Orbit - This is another great, affordable choice. Bonus points for being built in the USA. I would recommend the option for the built-in preamp. If you can afford it, the upgraded Orbit Plus model has some really nice components that should lead to better sound. However, if you are just starting out you probably don't need it and you can always upgrade those things on your own later.

There are a few other nice entry-level turntables on the market such as the Fluance and the TEAC but I haven't read up on them enough to make a recommendation.

Avoid stuff like Crosley at all costs. They are basically toys and can damage your records.

Highly recommend the book [The Hot Zone] ( which came out almost 20 years ago but is a fantastic read. It is part historical, part scientific, and just a well written account of the history of the virus as we know it.

I'm not sure how many know that the virus has already appeared in the US back in 1989 as a pathogen to monkeys but not humans. It also details the appearance of Marburg virus in German cities in the late sixties and is closely related to Ebola as it results in viral hemorrhagic fever.

Anyway, good read, pick it up if this is something that interests you.

The System it's a couple years old but it goes into some good detail about the inner workings about recruiting and how schools hire coaches and even some booster topics. Pretty good so far.

This is the one I got. Price appears to have gone up a touch but it was definitely a good investment for me. I cannot stress how much it has saved my butt several times.

They lasted me about...3 weeks. If I'm being particularly lazy, I'll eat cereal for lunch as well as breakfast. I probably bought more Lucky Charms in those 3 weeks than any other time in my life. It was glorious.

I think you can get them on Amazon as well.

Edit: Yup!

There's probably going to be a BiblioFriday post later on, but...

After reading the I lost my NFL team today post in the mothersub, I figured I should do some actual reading on CFB and traditions in this long offseason. I'm not a non-fiction reader at all, but I have enough interest that I can probably make it through a few of these.

Anyone of have any recommendations? I don't especially care what school the book's on (since I don't really have an FBS team to cheer for).

ETA: I did already add Running for my Life by Warrick Dunn on my wish list.

Edit 2: Running list:

I got a 1970s Craig turntable from Ebay for $44, paired that with an entry level Behringer preamp that cost $27, and hooked it up to a Raspberry Pi 2 B ($35) with a Cirrus Logic audio card ($40, but it's discontinued now :/), giving me a networked FLAC streaming record player for a total cost of $146.

The most commonly recommended USB turntable that doesn't suck is $300.

My setup isn't audiophile grade by any means, but it sounds good to me and cost way less than anything comparable.

Edit: fixed link

So after seeing /u/crowmygod post a picture of Ed with this toy, I decided to get one for Wheatley. I have a very smart dog, folks. I only put two of the bones in this morning. He figured out the rotating mechanism pretty quickly, and realized that he'd have to take out the bones to get it to move. He made two attempts to get them off, and then ever since he's just sat next to it and looked at me like, "Excuse me, will you take these off for me?" So yup, smart dog, just incredibly lazy.

*Freedom Presses

To be fair, it's the best way to make coffee. The only other method that might be just as good is the Aeropress.

I went through a watch nerd phase and have 8 of the damn things. 90% of the time I actually wear only two of them: this citizen quartz that I'm wearing right now is my casual knockabout. Its here but I have it on a NATO strap. The other I wear for more business / business casual dress.

  • What are you looking to spend?
  • Automatic (mechanical movement) or quartz crystal?
  • Dressy, sporty, diver?

    /r/watches has a pretty cool price guide thing in their wiki

If it's an ongoing thing, you can get an OBDII-to-bluetooth dongle for about $11 and a $5 phone app called Torque, then you can read and clear codes from your android phone. Plus see live engine data, which is neat. I think iOS has wifi equivalents. For me it adds a ton of peace of mind when I can read a code as soon as it pops up.

Recently read "The Boys in the Boat" to get my rowing fix. If you like non-fiction, it's great!

> "Oh, that's cute so do you pay attention to football? Like do you know our startingn QB?"

Stuff like this makes me so mad. When I wear my Cowboys jersey, don't condescendingly ask me if I know who the name on the back belongs to. And don't insinuate (or flat-out say) that I picked them because they're the Miami Heat of football. I literally grew up reading a Troy Aikman children's book. Literally.

u/dubsdcarson · 2 pointsr/CFBOffTopic

Real talk, I bought this a while back.

That's more than two and a half pounds of sour belts. SO FUCKING GOOD.

u/_dubs · 1 pointr/CFBOffTopic

I got this on sale for $100.

It's ok, but I know there are some much, much better ones out there. The cameras aren't very high quality and the rear facing camera is pretty much useless for seeing things outside of the car

u/joebob431 · 3 pointsr/CFBOffTopic

If you are interested in Ebola, and you haven't read it already, I would highly recommend The Hot Zone.

u/TanzaniaMagic · 4 pointsr/CFBOffTopic

If you like non-fiction biographies The Boys in the Boat is a solid choice.

u/DoctorWhosOnFirst · 2 pointsr/CFBOffTopic

If you're interested, I highly recommend Taste of War: World War II and the Battle for Food. I'm working my way through it now, and I'm really enjoying it!

Panlong Bluetooth OBD2 OBDII Car Diagnostic Scanner Check Engine Light for Android - Compatible with Torque Pro

And torque pro app can clear a check engine light. If the alarm comes back it can tell you exactly what's wrong too.

The book was written 15 years ago but The Backyard Brawl looks at why the rivalry between A&M and UT is so intense.

Another homer pick is The Junction Boys. It's the story of Bear Bryant's first year at A&M and how he took the team out to west texas for summer camp and nearly killed everyone
