Mormon thrift store find:

Pioneer LaserDisc player (CLD-D503) with S-video and AV cables - works flawlessly
Jurassic Park
The Sandlot
The Lion King
Poltergeist
and Apollo 13 - all discs look to be nearly flawless, rarely played condition.

I've always wanted a LaserDisc player because they are so obviously rad. I've never seen one in a thrift store before, let alone one with 5 good movies included.

Paid: $10.00

It's pretty cool. I used it to listen to all the songs in The Lion King. I miss having actuals dials on electronics.

I saw some kid on campus wearing those shoes the other day and was wondering what kind of shoes they were. They look pretty interesting. Are they comfortable?

I'm finding them quite comfortable. I recommend passing on them if you're mildly claustrophobic, though. They're also notorious for some initial foot muscle and calf pain. I've been running in sandals, huaraches, and similar near bare styles for the last few years. As thin as the Vibrams are, this is substantially more protection than I'm used to.

Vibrams are also great gym shoes, especially in the squat rack.
