Op, you are 1 year older than me and I feel old. My joints hurt, it's so much easier to gain weight, losing my hair, feel like I'm starting to forget things. It's terrible. After much contemplation I'd say getting old started when I turned 24, which is when my hairline began its retreat.
Little taste of luxury? First thing that comes to mind is Ortiz Bonito del Norte Spanish tuna. It's around $7 a tin online and usually $9ish locally, so around 5-600% the cost of a normal can of tuna. Water cracker-->homemade mayo-->Ortiz tuna-->few capers-->little twist of fresh pepper.

 Thanks for the info! I'd put my knowledge level at just enough to be dangerous.
Specs list this at 80ohms but looking at the innerfidelity measurements I see that the impedance spikes up to 300-325(!!) in the bass.  This could explain the differing opinions regarding bass response. A phone or small portable amp won't give you the bass as intended.
A friend of mine knows I'm in to audio and every time he comes over he tells me how great my stereo setup sounds. One day he asked me for advice about getting some ht stuff for his new apartment. We had emails back and forth back and forth. I'd send him some options, he would ask a couple questions, and then send me links to products I hadn't suggested, all of which "look good." He sent me links to all kinds of random amazon crap with no reviews, products with horrible...
