Jayco 30 ft travel trailer weight
Another lift question…
2023.06.08 00:17 NeedmoarCCs Another lift question…
Hey Tundra friends! I’ve got a 2012 2WD with a spacer level kit up front (1” spacer for 2” lift)
. I’m obviously not much of a wheeler, but I do like to take my rig out boondocking often and would appreciate a bit more clearance. Honestly, my current set up is “fine” but I’ve been getting the itch to get my project hat on.
So far my research has pointed me to the value oriented Bilstein 5100’s set on the top clip. That would get me 3” lift and allow me to run 285/75/18 tires with no real worry about rubbing. I do have a heavy ass high clearance bumper with a winch though. Will those numbers still work out? Should I also be using the Coach Builder shims? Any advice on that setup appreciated!
My real reason for this post though is the rear end. As you can see in the photo, I haul my dirtbike on a hitch carrier. Bike and carrier come in around 330lbs. It’s nice and smooth on the road, but when I’m off highway, I’ve definitely hit the stops. I also tow a travel trailer a few times a year. And the sag on that is ugly.
From what I’ve gathered, my options are pretty much shackles, airbags, and weight distribution hitch. Hitch is kind of out of the question since it only solves one part of my problem.
I’m leaning airbags with daystar cradles since it’s an easy adjust from bike carrier to trailer. I just wanted to know can I also do a 1” rear lift (to level out the front 3”) with the bags? And what are my options there?
Thanks in advance!

I am 67 years old and am at odds with my current ride, my ‘03 BMW R1150R. It’s fabulous, but I’m having a real problem dealing with the weight. This is bike #34 for me, and it’s not the heaviest I’ve ever ridden. I usages to have a ‘14 Honda Gold Wing F6B (bagger) I rode for 2 years until…cancer. I was diagnosed in summer of 2016, had surgery and 6 months of chemo. During the chemo days I flopped the F6B over at a stop light because of general weakness and some atrophy that was sneaking up on me. I wanted to cry…that bike was my best bike ever, and I just let it flop over. Two really nice men behind me in a ratty pickup truck jumped out and picked it up for me and helped calm me down. I rode the rest of the way home (South Florida) being careful to time all the lights to get home. That was the last ride on it for a long time. Eventually I had to do something. The chemo was long over, and I felt bad about it sitting outside in the heat even though I had the specific high end cover on it. After one of those nuisance hurricanes blew the cover into a neighbor’s yard, and feeling ongoing weakness in my legs, I became afraid to ride it. A dealer 30 miles away came and picked it up to service it and check for damage. This was fine, but when I went to fetch the bike, with my new Ranger Lariat and a U-haul, the dealer wouldn’t even show me my bike. This mega powersport dealer wanted my 5 year old F6B, and wouldn’t even roll it out for me to see. After some serious grumbling from me (I had patronized them many times before), I asked them to help me get it in the U-Haul. They balked and started to try to sell me a new bike. I still hadn’t laid eyes on my bike, and I had been there that day for nearly two hours. Because I knew my legs weren’t much improved, even after weeks of physical therapy, I suddenly decided that I might be willing to deal for something else, nice, flashy, and lighter. Two hours later I owned a 2017 Triumph Street Twin. That went into the trailer, and I never saw my F6B again. I wanted to cry again. I started on Hondas back in ‘71, had all those intervening bikes, and bought the Triumph without ever riding it. It went home in my trailer that was then loaded with all my goods so that I could move to the fantastic Pacific Northwest! It was 2019. Then came COVID. I was there to complete my emigration to Canada (new wife). But, many problems arose and the bike was parked in a storage unit, then a house I had to rent b/c I couldn’t bring all my stuff into Canada b/c my immigration process bogged down, and COVID came to kick everybody’s ass. After putting three hundred miles or so, the Triumph sat in a garage up a badly graveled road, so my fear of falling off of the bike was amplified even more. There it sat from September of 2019 until I finally got to enter Canada in May of 2020. But not the bike. More paperwork, and grief. The bike sat in Northern WA state for another year until I sold it thinking my riding days were up, and that I needed counseling or something about my trepidation on falling over again. TL:DR, right? However, I CANNOT NOT HAVE A MOTORCYCLE IN MY LIFE. So, having lost so much money on the F6B and the Triumph, I had to start saving all over again. That’s when I found the BMW for a great price. I got it, rode it home about thirty miles (US speedometer), pulled into the 30 degree slope up to get to our underground parking garage driveway that requires a 90 degree left turn to immediately drop down to the garage gate. Did you guess? I didn’t hit the driveway exactly, was nervous, and we went down right there, scraping the …. out of my left knee. Again, two house painters saw it and came to help me up. I wanted to cry. Got the bike down into the subterranean garage, and it sat while COVID was raging in Canada like everywhere else. I went down to the garage to clean it, pamper it, charging it up and running it. Then, as I was trying to get used to being married again, and some real anxiety, the BMW sat for a while until we were forced to move because of the rental crisis screwing us out of a place to live. June, 2022, we moved and I successfully rode the bike to our new location, on a hill, again. It has been down there ever since. It’s beautiful, old school cool, bright red and breaking my heart. So, here’s the real question: I need to sell it on and get something 100 pounds lighter. Because I’m really a Honda guy at heart, I’ve been looking for a used Hornet 600 or CB500F. I would rather have a four than a twin, though, and need something turnkey reliable, but not boring. I’ve lost 70 pounds, walk 7-8 miles every day, but my legs can stride but not push up or squat. The cancer and atrophy have left me needing to downsize my bike. In southern BC, I need to find my forever bike. #35 will probably be the last one, and my budget is shriveled to around $8,000 CAD. I’ve been trolling Kijiji, looking for a nice Honda, a Kawasaki W650, or whatever I can fit. I’m 6’4” so cruisers are out and too heavy. Sporty bike, less than 425 pounds, and one I can be happy with. Should have never let the Triumph go. I could ride it easily without any fear.

2023.06.07 23:30 khoafraelich789 5 of the Weirdest Cars You Never Knew Existed
| || | submitted by khoafraelich789 to CarInformationNews [link] [comments]
We think we know cars and for the most part, we do, but that doesn’t prevent us from being surprised by some of the weirdest cars to ever hit the roads. Many of these cars never made it to production, or if they did, it wasn’t for very long. These automotive oddities were often created to fill a specific need, which they did rather well. Unfortunately, filling this need was to the detriment of the rest of what many drivers wanted in a car. Here are five of the weirdest cars you probably have never heard of before now.
Dymaxion was more than just a car; it was a way of life. Buckminster Fuller coined the word and invented several Dymaxion items. These included a house, a map, and a sleep schedule with four naps per day. While some might feel they need those four naps, the 1933 Dymaxion was an interesting car. This was one of the weirdest cars ever made, riding on three wheels with a rearward tilt. The rear-mounted Ford V8 was a great feature, but otherwise, this car was seriously strange. MotorTrend tells us only three of these cars were ever made. One was wrecked, another scrapped, and the third became a chicken coop before it was restored.
2013 Mercedes-Benz AMG G63 6×6
What happens when you take a G-Wagen to the next level? You get one of the weirdest cars ever made. While extremely useful, the Mercedes-Benz AMG G63 6×6 was not a practical option for many drivers. This monstrous G-Wagen turned pickup truck rides on six big stonkin’ wheels and uses an incredible 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that pumps out 536 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque. The added hardware makes this off-road brute extremely heavy, but that doesn’t stop it from hitting 60 mph in only 7.8 seconds. Why is this a weird car? This monster is great on an open desert but impractical on most public roads.
1962 Peel P50
The Peel P50 serves one purpose in its life; it was the Guinness World Record holder as the smallest production car. This tiny machine weighed only 123 pounds and used three wheels. This setup and small weight make it a front-runner for the strangest car ever made. The Peel P50 didn’t come with a reverse gear, but at this light weight, some owners could lift it up and turn it around to go forward. Stranger still than this tiny and light car is that someone paid $176,000 for the P50 at a Sotheby’s auction. The Peel P50 is still in production, but modern versions come with a reverse gear and other items that come with a modern car.
1947 Norman Timbs Special
The Norman Timbs Special might be one of the weirdest cars ever made, but the sleek style makes it a car many would love to drive. This low-slung topless sports car includes a front-mounted cockpit with curves that lead to a long rear end, giving this car an elongated raindrop shape. Timbs was an Indy racking engineer and made this car with a Buick Straight 8 engine in the rear of the car. That makes this car pretty cool. Can a weird car be a cool car? The 1947 Norman Timbs Special answers in the affirmative.
1921 Leyat Helica
What do you design when you think cars are too heavy and lack aerodynamics? You build a lightweight car that can cut through the are like a hot knife through butter. Marcel Leyat created a propeller-driving car that could have taken flight had it included wings. This was one of the strangest cars ever made, but 30 models were built, and 23 of those were sold. This car featured a lightweight, streamlined plywood boy that tipped the scales at 550 pounds. The Leyat Helica recorded a speed of 106 mph in 1927, which is pretty good from an 18-horsepower Harley-Davidson motorcycle engine.
What do you think of these weird cars?

2023.06.07 22:32 Helios_Ra_Phoebus Question about Spot and his treatment by Alchemax in Across The Spider-Verse
Disclaimer: I missed about first 30 mins of the movie. I started watching from the part where Miles is already fighting Spot before going to School (the same part showed in the trailers). Therefore, I’m missing quite a bit of context, but here’s my question:
So, you’re telling me Spot was just “laughed” at and let go? Alchemax, the company that was trying to make multidimensional travel happen, just let go a multiverse traversing guy? Like okay, maybe they did not know his full capabilities, but you’re telling me a guy covered in holes from a multidimensional producing collider was thought to be a harmless freak and laughed off? Like, they didn’t try to capture, torture or even find out what the extent of his abilities could be? I mean, laughing at him, I can understand. But he never mentions any kind of experiments being done on him, and everyone just abandoning him. Like, they don’t even test his body even if the person was considered to be a joke?

2023.06.07 22:11 HelloLurkerHere One night in June of 1976 over a million and half people in Canary Islands (Spain) witnessed 'a gigantic explosion of light' in the sky. It became part of the local UFO narrative almost immediately. Declassified documents in 1994 hinted, however, at an earthly origin, a 2001 article confirmed it.
Background Canary Islands
is a Spanish archipelago of volcanic nature located in the eastern Atlantic ocean, just west of southern Morocco. The chain of islands extends for approximately 490 kilometers (300 miles).
Canary Islands is both geologically and climatologically almost identical to Hawaii, and as such, international tourism has been the main pillar of its economy since the 1960s. The Event
At around 10:15 PM of June 22nd, 1976, emergency services in all the main seven islands received a flood of calls, with people reporting having seen a strange and frightening phenomenon taking place in the night sky. Most of these callers described what they were seeing as 'a gigantic explosion of light'
or 'a massive ball of fire'
, and all of them said the phenomenon seemed to be taking place somewhere far in the west. These accounts were quickly confirmed true by local authorities, since the 'explosion of light' in question shone for several minutes before dissipating.
Many witnesses also added having seen one or two much smaller red lights moving strangely before the 'explosion' took place -rising from the horizon or from behind the mountains at very high speed, although others added that the lights flew following 'a zig-zag trajectory'.
No sound was heard or reported regarding the phenomenon, and no consequences seemed to follow except for a frightened population.
A foreign tourist vacationing in the island of Gran Canaria took the only known legit picture available of the phenomenon
, from the balcony of his hotel room in Maspalomas. Here
you can see a bigger version of the picture with enhanced contrast. Here's a drawing extracted from an official report made by the Spanish Air Force.
The drawing depicts a description of the event made with the information gathered from witnesses reports in the western coast of Gran Canaria. The mountains in the drawing are a depiction of the silhouette of Tenerife, the island immediately west of Gran Canaria. In order to understand the extreme magnitude of the 'explosion of light', please take into account that Tenerife is 70 kilometers (44 miles) away and its tallest peak -Mount Teide, which is in fact Spain's tallest mountain- is 3,718 meters tall (12,198 feet). Here's a real picture of the landscape
depicted in the drawing, for a better perspective.
Hong Kong's bulk carrier vessel Osaka Bay
was sailing from Capetown (South Africa) to Southampton (United Kingdom). The event took place when she was some 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of the island of La Gomera
, and her crew did also witness the phenomenon. Here's a drawing made out of their witness reports.
The crew of the Spanish Navy's corvette Atrevida (F-61)
observed the phenomenon as she was sailing just south of the island of Fuerteventura
. Her captain's account of the event; "At 22:27 local time of June 22nd it was seen, for the first time, a bright light of an intense bluish yellow color, taking off and rising in altitude towards our position... Once it reached certain height (15º-18º) it stood still, turning its light projection and showing its light source. It remained like that for approximately two minutes, before bursting into a large circle of bright bluish yellow light that remained in that position for forty minutes even after the original preceding phenomenon had faded away. Two minutes later the light source split, its lower half being smaller and standing in the middle of the circle of light, turning into a bluish cloud as the split half that had originated this bluish mass faded away. The upper half gained altitude while describing a fast but irregular spiraling trajectory, vanishing afterwards. None of these movements had any effect whatsoever on the initial circle of light, whose features remained the same, partially illuminating land and sea, which leads to believe that it wasn't an object far in the distance, but rather close".
Here's the translation of local newspaper excerpts detailing the event; "It was spotted between 10:15 and 10:30 PM and, according to one of our journalists who has his residence at Valle de Aridane (La Palma island), at that time he observed something that looked like a rocket emerging from the sea and flying towards El Time peak shining with an intense red light. The same phenomenon was spotted in Tazacorte (in La Palma island too). The ferry Villa de Agaete, sailing from Las Palmas, could observe a great shining at exactly 10:20 PM, shortly before docking in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The shining, which lasted about five minutes, appeared like a rocket that had come out of the sea". - El Día (June 23rd, 1976) "Last night, at around half past ten, a strange object was spotted from several points of our region, especially in the areas of Gáldar and Telde (Gran Canaria), where most phone calls we received in that regard were from. Our callers explained to us that it was a round object that grew massively in size as it rose, clearly defined before it began to fade. The aforementioned phenomenon began as a couple of red objects that moved in zig-zag, forming into some sort of spiral whose lower half ended in three clearly differentiated but overlaying stripes with some degree of separation between them. They were of a very bright red color and faded gradually. On top of these stripes there was what looked like two powerful blue focal lights, which began to diminish in intensity too before turning into a thin haze afterwards". - La Provincia (June 23rd, 1976)
Thanks to these accounts and description of the events, calculations could be made in order to ascertain the phenomenon's origins. At the moment of its beginning (which many witnesses described as a rocket taking off) the sun was already 13.7º under the horizon and its azimuth angle was 307º (northwest). Setting a hypothetical POV in the geographical center of the archipelago (28.50º N, 15.75º W, just north of Gran Canaria, it was calculated that during it's first phase (the 'rocket lights') the phenomenon was located some 762 kilometers (473 miles) straight west, at an approximate altitude of 46 kilometers (28 miles). By the end of its final phase (the 'explosion of light') it had traveled to a point located at around 1,062 kilometers (662 miles) west and had risen to a final altitude of 90 kilometers (56 miles).
These calculations became a very important piece of data, we'll get back to them later.
The UFO/Aliens narrative (AKA the press cherry-picks the statement of one particularly imaginative witness in order to sell a story of very questionable credibility)
Being the 1970s, almost immediately certain sectors of the press began talking about UFO -and subsequently about aliens, even though there was no further evidence to suggest such thing. The local authorities (the Army especially) focused their efforts into reassuring the population that there was nothing to fear, while at the same time gathering all the information they could gather in order to investigate the phenomenon.
In June of 1994, exactly eighteen years after that night, the Spanish Army declassified the 107-pages long investigation report of what by then it had been baptized as the "OVNI de Canarias 22/06/1976" ("Canary Islands' 06/22/1976 UFO"). Back then very few people in Spain had internet access, and as such the release of these documents went unnoticed for most people. However, many journalists rushed to get a copy of the report, and many of these worked for UFO/paranormal magazines of dubious scientific accuracy. And, aware of the kind of reaction they wanted to generate from the public they target, they focused in just one part of the report; Dr. Padrón's story.
Francisco Julio Padrón León (who passed away in 2013) was a general practitioner that lived and had his office in the rural municipality of Gáldar, which is located precisely in the northwestern part of the island of Gran Canaria (and precisely, where a lot of people reported witnessing the phenomenon. Unlike most witnessed, however, Padrón told Spanish authorities a much more extravagant version of the events.
That night he had been called in person to check on a local patient at her home, and the doctor had called a taxi in order to reach the patient's residence; Padrón lived in the town of Guía
, and the patient lived at a small parish some 10 kilometers away (6 miles) named Las Rosas
. Padrón, his companion and the taxi driver claimed having observed the phenomenon when the car was covering the last two kilometers of the route (at that point, a very narrow and barely paved rural road). Or more specifically, Padrón and the taxi driver claimed having bumped into it; because, according to the statement, at that moment the car's headlights illuminated a sphere that was floating right in front of them. The Padrón and the taxi driver described it as measuring some 30 meters (98 feet), slightly bright and slightly translucent. They (the doctor, especially) described seeing two humanoid entities inside the sphere, surrounded by what looked to be inner aluminum structural parts of the sphere. These figures were, per their statements, between 2.5 and 3 meters tall (8'2" to 9'10"), one taller than the other, and they were dressed in red skin-tight suits. Padrón claimed that these beings stood facing each other, apparently interacting among them but didn't seem to notice his or the taxi driver's presence. It then began to grow in size until (his words) "becoming as big as a 20-story building"
and began ascending. At this point of his statement he said he went to check on her patient, after which he told all people present at the patients' home, inviting everyone to go outside and check by themselves what he claimed he had seen. By the time everyone joined Dr. Padrón to watch, the sphere was already very big, standing high in the sky and then it flew away at extreme speed ("faster than any aircraft I've seen in my life"
, Padrón said in the report) leaving a trail of blue smoke behind before vanishing in the distance, towards Tenerife island.
In his individual report, the taxi driver made just a very skimp corroboration of Padrón's statement, omitting most details of his version of the phenomenon. It was just a few sentences long. The taxi driver was a man in his sixties (and wore glasses) of very little formal education -in fact, his preliminary handwritten statement had to be redacted to correct numerous grammar and spelling mistakes.
As for the companion (a relative of the patient, who was traveling in the backseat), this man only describes seeing "intense bright light everywhere"
and noticing "both the doctor and the taxi driver's agitation"
. He claimed the amount of light, plus the fact that by sitting in the backseat the taxi driver and the doctor's bodies blocked his view, hadn't allowed him to see what Padrón claimed having witnessed.
The declassified document contained many more witness reports gathered from the same area, but none of them matched Dr. Padrón's story about a sphere with two humanoids figures in it; every other description -most of them provided by locals- mentions the same enormous disc of light in the west night sky. A car mechanic and his wife described it as "a car's headlight thrice as large as the full moon"
. A school teacher mentioned having seen it from his house's window through a pair of binoculars when it began to fade, noticing its "fog-like appearance, and the night stars could be seen through"
, and mentioning what looked like a couple of bluish beams inside. A farmer explained in his statement that it looked like "a fire spot"
, he too mentioned seeing "two blue lines"
in it. Not even the sick woman Padrón had come to provide medical attention to nor her relatives confirmed the Dr.'s description of the phenomenon, matching instead everyone else's.
That didn't stop the journalists working for UFO/paranormal-themed magazines or even some journalists working for reputable newspapers from disregarding all these credible witnesses and instead focusing on the most outlandish one; Dr. Padrón. In summer of 1994, several of these Spanish magazines like Enigmas, Año Cero
or Más Allá
rushed to publish a drawing depicting Padrón's description of the 'humanoid figures dressed in red' in their articles, not only making absolutely no mention of any of the other witnesses but also claimed that the propulsion system of the alleged 'alien spacecraft' had scorched a nearby onion field -the area is full of that type of crops- and that posterior chemical analysis of the scorched terrain had yielded wildly unusual results. We'll come back to this point later. Sketch depicting Padrón's (unique, literally) description of the event. Yes, someone from the Army - more specifically from the Air Force- was tasked with sitting down next to this guy and spending a good deal of time drawing whatever ludicrous thing Padrón felt like coming up with.
Something worth mentioning; these publications made heavy emphasis on Padrón's education -he was a GP, after all. As in, as extraordinary as his claims were, these were being made by a man of a high level of education, intelligent and therefore (in the eyes of many) automatically worth of credibility. In fact, the patient's relative traveling in the taxi's backseat -a farmhand that had never received formal schooling and was illiterate- said in his witness report that one of the reasons why he did not question Padrón's statement was precisely the abysmal difference in education between him and the doctor, and kind of assumed that if an educated man like Padrón said that such thing had indeed happened, then it must have been true.
A local newspaper interviewed Dr. Padrón shortly after the documents were declassified. And by then, eighteen years after that night, Padrón added some more details to his already bizarre account, providing these journalists with something that wouldn't have been out of place in an episode of The X-Files (which back in 1994 had begun to be broadcasted in Spain, with significant success). Back in 1976 Padrón had already added in his statement that he did not feel fear but 'a strange sense of wellbeing and excitement' in his encounter with the alleged spacecraft; now he was also saying that these beings -which never communicated with him in any way, per his account- had not only the ability to erase anyone's memories off their brains, but they also can "make you see whatever they want you to do for months or years, replacing an 'energy' [his word] in your brain"
. If these statements weren't absurd enough, Dr. Padrón warned the journalists about not taking him seriously, because in the last three years he "had observed that anyone who had been skeptical of my statements and hurt my credibility in public has passed away within six or seven months, all of them to cancer, eight people in total so far".
Although the documents that included the description of his ludicrous story hadn't been declassified until 1994, ever since 1976 many journalists had managed to get in touch with Padrón and hear his story -the doctor himself wasn't exactly quiet about it either -and some of these are allegedly the cancer victims Padrón would've been referring to. There's no way to check the veracity of that, since the only source of that statement was Padrón himself.
Between 1976 and 1994 the doctor's story circulated in a somewhat obscure manner, being referred to in some UFO articles here and there -and adding their own artistic depictions of his outlandish story
. Padrón was already telling any 'paranormal' journalist willing to listen about the scorched onion field. Turned out, back in June of 1976 a farmer in the municipality of Guía did indeed notice an area in one of his onion crops that seemed to have been burned, but that man had specified that that hadn't happened until the morning of June 24th, a good day and half after Padrón's alleged 'alien encounter'. What is more, although the cause of these burns couldn't be ascertained, they were indistinguishable from fire damage. To this day it's thought that these burnt onion plants were nothing but the result of vandalism or a prank. Some UFO skepticism authors have raised the possibility of the doctor himself being responsible. Picture of one of the many onion fields in Guía and Gáldar. To this day, Dr. Padrón's 'scorched onion field' remains a running joke among the older residents in these municipalities.
At the time Padrón even managed, out of sheer insistence, to get that soil tested. Surprisingly to no one, all chemical, physical and radiological analyses performed yielded no unusual results. The sampling and testing was conducted by Hungarian-Spanish physician Alejandro Carlos de Gyorko-Gyorkos, who at the time was curious about paranormal phenomena and had interviewed Padrón many times in 1976. According to a journalist for Naukas (A Spanish online science and technology magazine that specializes in skepticism and debunking of pseudoscience), in 1992 Gyorko-Gyorkos described Padrón as a man that "interprets everything he comes up with as real"
. By 1994 Padrón was also claiming that the Spanish Air Force had threatened him with legal action to silence him, and that Gyorko-Gyorkos was a man whose "ethics he'd rather not talk about"
. Padrón had never mentioned these alleged legal threats at any point before June of that year, precisely once the documents were declassified, a coincidence that hadn't gone unnoticed. Some skepticism authors have elucubrated about the possible inspiration for Padrón's 'tall men in dressed in red spacesuits'. Not exactly very original.
Explanation (1994 and 2001)
The 1976 document concludes that the origen of the 22/06/976 UFO -although in reality the Spanish Air force used then the acronym FANI (Fenómeno Aéreo No Identificado', 'Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon') when referring to it- was unknown. In 1994 these paranormal journalists presented such conclusion as an automatic evidence of aliens, or at least UFOs in the sense popular culture depicts then. In reality, as anyone can notice upon checking the report, 'unknown' means precisely that; unknown. At no point in the report the authors bring up rebuttals for any possible logical or rational explanation, but rather they conclude that back in 1976 there was just not enough evidence to provide an accurate explanation of its origin.
The same report contains the transcription of precisely Dr. Gyorko-Gyorkos's opinion about Dr. Padrón's reasoning (safe to assume, by then had already made up his mind about the man) in a military court. In the transcription, and in what looks like a generous maneuver to dismiss Padrón's claims without going as far to humiliate him, Gyorko-Gyorkos explains a military judge that that night Dr. Padrón, possibly overworked and sleep-deprived, misremembered what had seen and his fatigued psyche had create a mixed recollection with what he had seen and what had crossed his mind. As for the taxi driver, this man was probably highly impressionable -apparently the Dr. had behaved in a very excited manner during the phenomenon- and thus in a way Padrón had 'passed' his delusional belief onto him. The military court ruled that "Padrón's credibility could not, for the time being, be corroborated"
Of course, at this point of this writeup a question still lingers; what was whatever thing close to a million and half people saw in the night sky back on June 22nd, 1976? First, let's go over the world's state of affairs at the time, because this is one of these 'mysteries' in which history had been hinting at the answer almost from the beginning;
In 1976 the world was still amidst of a low-key conflict between two superpowers with lots of political tensions; the United States (plus NATO) versus the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (plus other members of the Warsaw Pact). AKA, Cold War. As part of the Western Bloc, at the time Spain had been a long-time ally of NATO. However, the country wouldn't become a NATO member itself until 1982 -which was so controversial within Spain that a referendum would be held in 1986 questioning Spanish people's desire to remain in the military alliance.
As such, while Spain was a Western ally, back in 1976 it was not really 'in the game' yet, especially when taking into account that, unlike in other countries, NATO membership wasn't that welcome. Please notice the year the Spanish army declassified the documents; 1994. The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 (and with it , the fall of the Iron Curtain) helped lower the stakes this international poker game, and as such the world would learn about all sorts of crazy things that had been going on at both sides of the conflict in absolute secrecy.
Earlier in this writeup there is a data-based description of the phenomenon's behavior, but most importantly, it's ballistic trajectory. Adding to that, countless witnesses had described seeing either one or a couple of lights 'taking off like a rocket'. Let's remember; it had been ascertained that it originated at about 700 kilometers west and had moved further west in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean while reaching an altitude of 90 kilometers -which is about the lower thermosphere. This had already raised the first suspicions among the members of the Spanish intelligence services, suspicions that gained weight in 1994 -and that likely led to the declassification of the report- when much clearer and straightforward communication between the United States' government and Spain's allowed for a more open investigation of the sort of testing the Americans were engaging in. In 2001 an article of research journalism, coauthored by science journalists Ricardo Campo and Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos finally identified what was behind the 1976 aerial phenomenon.
Campo and Ballester had already noticed its ballistic trajectory calculated in 1976. In 1999, suspecting already who (country) was the 'culprit', they accessed Jonathan McDowell's database of ballistic missile launches.
Previous to that Campo and Ballester had failed to find any useful information in NASA's archives, as none of the launches in their registry matched the evidence, and prior to that -right after the 1994 declassification, in fact- they had traveled to Moscow looking for the possible explanation there. Russian military authorities had adamantly denied their involvement in the phenomena, which directed the investigators towards other leads (while at the same time not disregarding the possibility of Russia being behind it after all.
Finally, Campo and Ballester bumped into these two rows
of the database. First column indicates the launch identification number. Second and third, the date (in the Julian and Gregorian calendars. Fourth is GMT time (which, adjusting for a compilation error, coincides with Canary Islands' GMT+1 local time when the phenomenon took place). The fifth column tells the type of missile, the sixth on identifies the launch platform and finally the seventh one indicates who was responsible for the launch. Simply put, the information in these rows means; on June 22nd, 1976, two Poseidon C3 thermonuclear missiles were launched from US Navy's submarine USS Von Steuben
), at 20:16 and 20:17 GTM.
The database does not include location (that information remains classified) but during their research Campo and Ballester learned from McDowell
himself that the US Navy's eastern test range covers from Cape Canaveral (Florida, US) all the way Ascension Island
. The location of the 1976's phenomenon falls well within such range.
From here, Campos and Ballester offered an explanation of its optics. The Poseidon C3 missile
carries several 40-kiloton nuclear warheads (normally ten) -for comparison, Little Boy was a single 15-kiloton bomb. Once the two 400-kiloton missiles detonated in the thermosphere, the quick expansion of extremely hot atmospheric gases reflected the sunlight back to Earth, even though by then in Canary Islands the sun was already well below the horizon and the sky was pitch black; at 90 kilometers of altitude, these expanding gases were still in direct path of the sunlight. This reflection is what made the phenomenon appear so bright and big in spite of the 700+ kilometers of distance between witnesses and its source. Campo and Ballester's article
provided also an explanation for other similar events -albeit not that espectacular as the one pertaining this writeup- that had taken place in the islands between 1973 and 1979. All except one were found to be the result of other American thermonuclear tests, with the exception of this one
seen south of the archipelago in 1979 -and finally acknowledged by Russia in 2017, although they did not explain what exactly it was. Conclusion TL;DR: It was a couple of thermonuclear missiles launched in secrecy by the US Navy in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The 'aliens' witness was, to put it mildy, an individual with an extreme tendency to make ludicrous statements and a marked need to be the centre of attention.
Campo and Ballester's work is available online for free, and anyone who speak Spanish can check the story of their investigation for themselves.
This is not to say that the whole 'aliens' narrative died down. To this day, the story of the 1976 phenomenon continues to be shared sometimes in media as 'proof' of UFO/aliens, even though it's literally neither -coincidentally, failing to mention the vast amount of evidence pointing at a thermonuclear test. In June of 2016 several newspapers published articles remembering the phenomenon in its 40th anniversary, and pretty much all of them reminded the reader right from the headline that the 'mystery' had long been solved.

2023.06.07 20:53 GRBYGRBY More than 90% of California Cannabis Farms are Infected with a Severe Revenue-Destroying Pathogen, Hop-latent viroid (HLVd) - COVSPECT
| || |https://preview.redd.it/mlofmmm67n4b1.jpg?width=795&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=456fc9324e6452d41d146f3660009e38bf32523d submitted by GRBYGRBY to CannabisGrowers [link] [comments]
More than 90% of California cannabis farms are infected with a ‘severe’ pathogen called Hop-Latent Viroid (HLVd). An infectious pathogen inside California’s pot farms called Hop-latent viroid, or HLVd is attacking cannabis plants and growing invisibly for months only to spoil a crop just as a farmer is ready to harvest. Scientists believe that it’s in nearly every cannabis farm in California and could be causing billions of dollars in damages to the U.S.’s largest State and it’s largest cannabis economy. [1
Hop-latent viroid, or HLVd, shrivels pot plants and reduces how much weight they produce by as much as 30%. It also destroys the amount of THC, marijuana's most common active compound, that a plant produces, greatly reducing the value of affected plants. [1
HLVd was first documented in cannabis in a pair of scientific studies
published in 2019, including a study that confirmed the viroid’s presence
in samples from a Santa Barbara pot farm. It’s now infected at least 90% of California’s cannabis grows, according to a 2021 estimate
. It’s spreading globally, and a recent scientific paper
declared the pathogen was the “biggest concern for cannabis” growers worldwide. [4
Hop-latent viroid (HLVd is a serious disease that can devastate cannabis crops. The viroid causes a number of symptoms, including stunted growth, leaf curling, and discoloration. In severe cases, HLVd can kill entire plants.
HLVd has likely been spreading in cannabis farms for more than a decade, but at first, growers didn’t know what was harming their harvest. It was commonly called “dudding,” and it would only show up at the end of the crop’s life cycle, distorting the plant’s shape and reducing the amount of active compounds produced, like THC, by as much as 50%
. This effect can destroy the retail value of a crop. [7
HLVd’s late-acting symptoms make it a pernicious pest for modern cannabis farming. Farmers commonly grow cannabis by cutting small pieces off of one plant, frequently called the “mother,” which is then used to propagate hundreds of new baby plants.
These mother plants are artificially prevented from growing flowers, which allows them to keep producing offspring, but it also delays the symptoms of HLVd. That means a single mother plant infected with HLVd could silently spread the pathogen for months without showing any symptoms of the disease.
HLVd was first identified in hop plants, a close relative of cannabis, in the 1980s. It’s now commonly found in hop farms and can reduce the amount
of aromatic compounds produced by hops, which are primarily used to flavor beer. [8
In 2019, HLVd was first identified in cannabis when scientists confirmed
the viroid’s presence in samples from a Santa Barbara pot farm. But by 2021, the viral pathogen had spread to at least 90% of the state’s pot farms, according to a 2021 survey
that sampled 200,000 California cannabis plants.
And now the viroid has spread to pot farms across the world, from Massachusetts
to Europe. [9
Traditional methods of treating HLVd, such as fungicides and insecticides, are often toxic and ineffective. In addition, these treatments are harmful to the environment and can leave residues on the plants that can be toxic to consumers. The deleterious health problems caused by toxicants are increasing due to their penetration and accumulation through the food chain, and their persistence in the ecosystem. Such contaminants can cause acute and chronic diseases in the human body, such as lung cancer, renal dysfunction, osteoporosis, and cardiac failure. [2
UV-C and 222nm Far UV-C are emerging technologies that show promise for treating HLVd. UV-C light is a type of ultraviolet radiation that has a wavelength of 200-280 nanometers. 222nm Far UV-C light is a type of UV-C light that has a wavelength of 222 nanometers. If you wish to destroy pathogens like HLVd, using 222nm far UV-C, 222nm light photons travel 1000 feet in one microsecond. Photons from the lamp reach an opposing wall in 1/20 of a microsecond. At 500 feet per minute air flow, it can achieve 4-log reduction in bacteria at a treatment time less than 1/8 second. That means that Far-UV line-of-sight disinfection can prevent viruses from surviving any airborne trip inside a light zone of a Far-UV lamp. [3
UV-C and 222nm Far UV-C light are both non-toxic and environmentally friendly. They are also effective against a wide range of other pathogens, including bacteria, fungi, and mold. UV-C Treatment for HLVd Management
While specific studies on UV-C treatment for HLVd in cannabis are scarce, the broad efficacy of UV-C in combating plant pathogens and viroids suggests its potential application for managing HLVd infections. UV-C light has been utilized in horticulture and agriculture to control various plant diseases by damaging the genetic material of pathogens. Benefits of UV-C Treatment
Considerations for UV-C Treatment
- Inactivation of HLVd: UV-C treatment has the potential to disrupt the genetic material of HLVd, inhibiting its replication and reducing the viroid load in cannabis plants. This can help prevent the detrimental effects on yield and THC production caused by HLVd infection.
- Non-chemical Approach: UV-C treatment offers a non-chemical alternative to manage HLVd, reducing the reliance on traditional fungicides and pesticides. This can be advantageous for cannabis growers aiming to minimize chemical inputs and adopt sustainable cultivation practices.
- Dosage and Exposure: Determining the appropriate UV-C dosage and exposure duration is crucial to ensure effective HLVd inactivation while minimizing potential harm to the cannabis plants. Generally dosing infected plants for around 20 seconds per plant 3-5 times per week for approximately 15-30 seconds should be sufficient. Consultation with experts in plant pathology and agricultural research is recommended to establish specific guidelines tailored to HLVd on cannabis.
- Implementation and Safety: UV-C treatment should be implemented with care to avoid any adverse effects on plant health. Proper protective measures, such as wearing appropriate eyewear, hazmat suits, and ensuring operator safety, must be followed when working with UV-C lamps or LED systems. With 222nm far UV-C exposure should be limited to about 8 hours per day, as 222nm far UV-C is a shorter wavelength that does not penetrate past the Stratum corneum, the ‘dead layer’ of the skin. 
UV-C and 222nm Far UV-C are emerging technologies that show promise for treating HLVd. Although specific studies directly addressing UV-C treatment for HLVd on cannabis are currently limited, the potential of UV-C light to inactivate plant pathogens and viroids suggests its applicability in managing HLVd infections. UV-C treatment offers a non-chemical approach to mitigate the detrimental effects of HLVd on cannabis plants, safeguarding crop yield and preserving THC production. While further research is necessary to establish specific guidelines for UV-C treatment of HLVd on cannabis, its potential benefits warrant exploration. By harnessing the power of UV-C treatment, cannabis growers can enhance their ability to combat HLVd, protect crop productivity, and preserve the value of their plants. These technologies are safe, effective, and environmentally friendly. If you are a cannabis grower, (especially a California-based grower) who is struggling to control HLVd, UV-C and 222nm Far UV-C light may be a viable option for you.

2023.06.07 17:33 Moist_Green9176 Getting 25k from my totaled truck. Need opinions on what to do with it.
I recently hit a deer with my vehicle and insurance is giving me money. Because right now it's difficult for me to go back and forth from work. And that is an hour away from me. I am 24 male and single with 140k in my bank account from an inheritance on top of what insurance is giving me with my totaled truck Really debating on buying a 30-foot travel trailer RV and a truck that can haul it. Have options to store it on family property. Just looking for reassurance on if this is a bad idea or not. Real estate is too crazy to buy right now without me living paycheck to paycheck. Any advice would help. Would ask my parents but unfortunately, they are not around anymore.

2023.06.07 15:39 tat77 Does anybody have experience filtering lake and stream water for drinking?
We boondock a lot and are wanting to buy a water filter to clean stream and lake water so we can stay out longer and not have to travel to fill up jugs. Blutech
has a 3 stage filter with an optional "Off-Grid" filter
also has a 3 stage system, both with a .2 micron filter but the blutch weighs 15 lbs and uses 5" filters and Clearsource is about 30 lbs and uses 10" filters. I like the weight of Blutech but 5" replacement filters are harder to find in case the company goes belly up. Plus the price is pretty high for both. Curious if others out there have any other solutions or experience with filtering lake or stream water or experience with these products? Is a regular sediment and .2 micron filter enough? Do I really need a reverse osmosis filter?
EDIT: meant to say .2 microns, not 2 microns.

2023.06.07 14:20 lime_head737 My first trip after losing mom
I’m filled with many emotions today as I write this out.
I’m in my 20s, lost my mom to a heart attack last summer. I still remember the phone calls from neighbors and first responders. The walls in my apartment seemed to shoot out in all directions, making me feeling like my 700 sq ft apartment covered an entire football field. I had only been moved away for a year, started my career and life with my future wife.
It had been discussed all through my life that part of my inheritance was to travel. She’d worked in some national parks in her 20s and was always a nature buff.
After a lot of replanning because of weather, I had found two hikes in Pinnacles National Park that were so beautiful. For the first time in a long time, I felt my mom. We were coming up on a pretty good elevation gain, I was dead tired and was anticipating a great view just 50 ft around a turn on the ridge. I stop. I see a mom and her two daughters. She points, mouthing “condors”. These big birds are beautiful to witness flying among the cliffs here. Almost 50 years ago, only 20 some existed in this area. I turned 180°, waving my fiancé to get her attention. Two were cruising along the ridge of a plateau about 200 ft above us. Just then, a condor comes out of nowhere, maybe only 30 ft above me. It was awesome to watch an animal be so close.
I’m not a big believer or non believer in signs after someone’s gone. I haven’t felt any signs since she’s been gone, but today it felt different. I also do get a chuckle out of this if it is a sign because the last song I listened to with my mom was Free bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
If that was my mom, I know for sure she is as happy as she always wanted to be. Good seeing you today mom. Hope to see you on the next trail.

2023.06.07 12:41 Meaning-Plenty O’ Pir Panchal
After remaining invincible and impregnable for centuries, the mighty Pir Panchal is witnessing enormous developmental activity for a new expressway, a challenging railway line and most of the dam-fed hydropower projects involving an investment of tens of thousands of crores. At places, this is triggering the fragile range to cave in at the cost of homes and livelihoods of age-old villages, a situation that experts believe could have been avoided with better pre-feasibility studies and sophisticated project implementation, reports Masood Hussain
Anticipated for years, finally, the increased incidence of land subsidence and sinking in the Pir Panchal Mountains is Jammu and Kashmir’s new normal. The young fragile and unstable mountain range separating Kashmir from the rest of the world is in news frequently as the slopes housing small habitations for centuries are caving in.
On February 19, 2023, around 16 structures of Duksar Dalwa (Duksar Dal), a hamlet almost 45 km uphill from Ramban, suffered serious damage as the land caved in. It crippled road connectivity between Gool and Ramban where almost 500 meters developed cracks, tripped the electric supply and snapped the water supply. Three homes developed cracks forcing authorities to shift the impacted population to safer areas.
Officials said while they are working overtime to resume power and water supplies, they are also improving the Dharam-Salballa road to make it an alternative supply route to the “literally disconnected” area. In the sinking village, the official encouraged the residents to move swiftly to safer spots. For residents, however, the gradual 3-day sinking was a painful watch of their life earnings slowly cracking up and becoming black holes over hills.
It started with a crater that widened to almost 500 meters during two nights, making almost everything around unsafe, unstable and life-threatening. A mosque, Darsgah, the village seminary and the village graveyard were destroyed. Residents quickly exhumed a recently buried body and laid it to rest at a “safe” place.
Officials who visited the spot said the village’s agriculture fields were rendered useless, pushing residents into poverty. They lost homes and their livelihoods too.
The Duksar erasing came less than a fortnight after Doda lost a cluster of houses to a similar instance on February 3, 2023. Located on the foothills on the road to Kishtwar near Thathri, nearly 35 km from Doda, the volunteers, residents and government officials had to quickly shift 117 members of 19 families as the patch of slope housing the Nai Basti cluster gave in within three days. A total of 21 structures cracked and became unsafe.
Horrific Tunnel Collapse
The last horrific tragedy took place on May 19, 2022, when the workers were digging into an adit (minor access to the T3 tunnel) near Khooni Nalla at Ramsu’s Makerkot area. It collapsed over them killing ten workers including two local residents and eight Nepalese labourers. The tragedy struck during the day amid incessant rain but still, only two persons could be rescued alive.
The workers were on the challenging stretch of the national highway between Digdole and Khooni Nallah, which is otherwise notorious for frequent landslides and shooting stones due to fragile geology. It was part of the twin-tube tunnel that would connect Digdole to Panthyal and was implemented by Ceigall India Limited in a JV with Patel Engineering Limited. (The contractor has been imposed a heavy fine.)
The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) that has taken over the Jammu Srinagar national highway from Border Roads Organisation (BRO), a few years back, is constructing at least five tunnels to bypass the highway’s 3-km “killer’’ stretch from Panthyal to Makerkote. Tunnel T3 is part of this intervention.
Unlike the rest of the highway, the 36-km Banihal Ramban stretch has been the most challenging one and that is why it is still under implementation. On this stretch are six “killer spots” located on a 14-km road stretch and NHAI intends to spend Rs 2000 crore to manage this. Implementation of this would offer some safety from frequent halts owing to shooting stones at Marog, Panthial, Digdol and Battery Chashma.
Implementation of these projects is triggering crises for the localities living around them. As many as 13 houses in Sujmatana village near Ramsu were literally devastated. The round-the-clock blasting for the tunnel projects and cutting work made these houses inhospitable after they developed cracks. Most of them have left their unsafe homes and migrated elsewhere. Though officials are looking into the crisis since 2017, it is yet to be settled.
On August 4, 2022, 36 families had a providential escape when their Bassan village in Reasi became the casualty of sinking and erosion at the same time. Without any notice, landslides carried down boulders and muck that crashed the houses and put the agriculture fields out of sight. It was so abrupt, villages said, that they had no time to take their belongings along.
Officials admitted that almost 60 kanals of land sank as another 400 kanals patch was rendered useless. Almost all the fruit trees, mostly walnut and apricot, were engulfed in mud. Almost 200 meters of a PMGSY road was also downthrown by around 25 meters from its actual alignment.
The earlier worst case was reported from Dalwas when on March 28, 2020, the residents fled when their homes and fields were literally buried by landslides. Almost 40 households were impacted.
The village has been there for ages and never experienced any such threat. Then one day it literally disappeared. Residents alleged that being away from Srinagar and Jammu, deep into the mountains they hardly were reported. At one point in time when they wanted to protest, authorities invoked Covid19 concerns to prevent it.
Over the years, the government response has remained unchanged. Once the reports land that spots are sinking, they as the first quick reaction, send cops, paramilitary, SDRF and revenue officials to oversee and, in most cases, extend help in quick evacuations. In stage two, the respective Deputy Commissioner writes to geologists and the Department of Geology and Mining and, off late, to the Geological Survey of India, who rush their experts to these spots. In the subsequent few days, they study the local rock formations and submit reports, part of which goes to newspapers and by and large the files get closed.
At the same time, files start rolling about relief and rehabilitation. It takes its own time. In many cases, people who lose their homes and livelihoods are yet to be properly rehabilitated.
Invariably, the policymakers and the administrators avoid two vital ingredients of the story – the assessments that the local populations make about the crisis they land in and the wider angle that remains unchanged across the Pir Panchal range.
Affected populations are unwilling to accept that these crises are natural. They see them as man-made disasters. Raqeeb Wani, a former Sarpanch of Daskar Dalwa told The Telegraph that his village’s erasing is directly linked to the construction of two railway tunnels downhill, that would link a 3km rail track between Sangaldan and Chaddi. He attributed it to the “continuous blasting” that loosens the soil and adds to the instability of the mountain.
“A few years ago, we had a similar disaster in Sangaldan a few years ago when an entire market caved in,” Wani was quoted as saying. “That also was owing to the railway project.”
In the case of Dalwas, for instance, a former lawmaker from Ramban Ashok Kumar Dogra said the “unscientific planning” of the widening of the national highway is responsible. “The highway authorities started excavation of the road from beneath the village without raising any wall on the side of the village. As no concrete measures were taken by the NHAI to protect the village and debris was also disposed of at the same place, the tragedy was bound to happen and the houses collapsed and the village sank,” Dogra told Outlook. “I will not call it a natural disaster. It was the unplanned construction that destabilised the soil of the whole area, leading to its sinking.”
Right to A Road
Pir Panchal mountain range has remained literally invincible and technically impregnable for centuries. It took decades of thought process and a lot of resources to lay a foot track between Jammu and Srinagar, to have an alternative to Mughal Road. Known to history as the Banihal Cart Road, it was difficult and always retained by Dogra despots as a private route. It remained inaccessible to people till 1922. Till the Jawahar Tunnel was inaugurated, the road would pass over the Banihal pass, the abandoned remnants of which still exist.
This made Kashmir rely on the Jhelum Valley Road (JVR) as the main highway.
Almost 225 residents from 48 households who somehow survived the tragedy moved to another village and are still struggling to pick the threads of their lives. Though life has returned to the village, they are still fighting for an electric supply line and the rebuilding of the school building.
An Upcoming Railway
The road is just not the only thing that is happening deep inside the Pir Panchal mountain range. While the road is being upgraded, there is a railway project in an advanced stage of implementation.
Unlike the road that is being laid over the foothills not far away from the old alignment that also followed a foot track of the eighteenth and nineteenth century, the railway track is passing through a virgin area, part of which has not seen even a bus. For making rail reach Baramulla from Udhampur, the 272-km project is going to cost a whopping Rs 37012 crore of which more than ninety per cent has already been spent.
Work on JVR started in 1880 and was formally thrown open in September 1890, when Maharaja Partap Singh was driven through from Baramulla to Kohala. The construction of this gigantic road project was implemented by a major British Indian contractor M/S Spedding, Mitchell & Co and was overseen by different British engineers at different stretches. While General de Bourbel oversaw everything as the Chief Engineer Kashmir, it was Alexander Atkinsonmanagedmost of the road up to Chakoti (on the other side of LoC now) and a few parts on the Kashmir side; Farrant was in charge of construction between Chakotiand Baramulla; as EG Hebbert supervised its completion in November 1889. Resources apart, it cost too many lives. Between Chakoti and Baramulla, 54 Pathans were killed in four years. Besides, 20 lives were lost to snake bites.
Post-partition, the Banihal Road became arterial and pressure built with a surge in population and demand in Kashmir. For seven decades, this road bore the brunt of all the pressures of travel, demand and consumerism and gave in. The rise of the Kashmir apple added another pressure factor so did the security requirements.
Finally, a stage reached that the health of the national highway was directly linked to the economic well-being of Kashmir. This paved the way for the decision by the Government of India that distances need to be reduced and the highway must be improved so that commuters do not end up spending a day on a 300-km highway.
More than a decade after the first spadework, it is emerging as one of the best roads. There are three major tunnels that have skipped dangerous patches while reducing distance and uphill driving: a set of four small tunnels near Nandni with a combined length of 1.4 km; 9.2 km Chenani-Nashri tunnel has bypassed a gruelling uphill drive and 8.5 km Banihal-Qazigund tunnel is going to tame dangerous Banihal Pass forever.
Distance has dropped from 300 to 270 km and the travel time from 12 to around 5 hours. But the Banihal-Ramban stretch remains a challenge. Earlier, it was merely a technological crisis, now it is a serious ecological issue.
These villagers were fortunate in comparison to the Sadal hamlet of Udhampur which was buried under a massive mudslide at noon on September 6, 2014. Following incessant rains for many days, it triggered massive floods in Kashmir and the rest of the erstwhile state. As many as 41 residents from 65 households were killed by the wee hour mountain collapse that brought an almost 30-foot-thick blanket of rafted rock fragments mud, sludge and rubble.
The rail is already chugging between Udhampur and Katra (25 km) since July 2014, Baramulla to Qazigund (118 km) since October 2009; and Qazigund to Baramulla (18 km) since June 2013. This leaves the most challenging stretch of 111 km between Banihal and Katra to be implemented.
However, the cost of the track does not define the project. It is the work that details the challenge. Nearly 119 km of the entire track will pass through 38 tunnels, the longest of which is 12.77 km long.
What is interesting is that in the 111-km Banihal – Katra track, 97.42 km are tunnels and most of the rest are bridges. Railway officials have to do 163.82 km of tunnelling in total – 66.4 km are escape tunnels – to make the track possible. For making these tunnel spots accessible to men and machines, there is a network of 205 km of roads, which remain busy round the clock.
This track will have 37 bridges – totalling 7 km in length, including the iconic Chenab Bridge, which is tipped to be the highest railway bridge on earth. While this bridge is ready, the current focus is on the first cable-stayed railway bridge on Anji Khad.
With thousands of people working deep inside the mountains with basic cutting and blasting machinery a lot of activity is generated.
There were dozens of instances in which the portions of various tunnels collapsed resulting in either changing the alignment or repairing the damage and restoring the tunnel. In July 2006, an almost 3 km long tunnel on the Udhampur-Katra track gradually started sinking after massive soil swelling on the two ends making it unusable and thus delaying the project. Northern Railways later hired an Austrian consultant, Geo Consult International (GCI), to salvage the project after many years of delay. The causes of the damage were visible to even the then Chief Minister, Ghulam Nabi Azad, who said he saw “a river flowing under the tunnel”.
A number of tunnels between Katra and Sangaldan witnessed “abnormal” water discharge making construction a challenging task. In Sangladan, the managers were shocked when they saw a 500-meter track between two tunnels actually missing one fine morning. Reported in 2006, it destroyed a vast stretch of land on a slope housing as many as 100 structures besides over 400 meters of the road connecting Mahore and Gulabgarh.
In 2016 summer of 2016, authorities shifted 124 families – almost the entire village of Dharam, after the vast patch of land that housed the hamlet caved in within three months. Though the officials attributed it to natural reasons, the residents linked the unprecedented situation to the ongoing work on the railway line passing close to the village.
Oceans In Gorges
Piercing the Pir Panchal mountains for smooth, faster and better communication is just not the only thing happening in the region. Owing to the mighty Chenab, the region is Jammu and Kashmir’s powerhouse. More than 90 per cent of the hydropower potential is restricted to the region owing to the availability of water and enough space to construct dams within the mountain gorges. This has led to a situation where the region holds a massive amount of water in its dams.
The region’s tryst with power generation started late last century with the implementation of the 900-MW Salal power project in Reasi in 1978. The project’s 1.45 million cubic meter dam has created the Salal lake which has the capacity to retain more than 28 million cubic meters of water.
Then came the 390-MW Dul-Hasti Power Project near Kishtwar. It was followed by the 900-MW Baglihar power with 1.8 cubic meters of the dam and an additional reservoir capacity of 39.5 cubic meters – a facility that has created a huge water body in the mountain gorges between Chanderkote belt and Thathri to the extent that certain localities and infrastructures had to be relocated. Quite a few people still live in the highway town of Pul Doda.
The region has many other power projects at different stages of implementation. These include 850-MW Rattle, 100-MW Pakal Dul, 624-MW Kiru, 540-MW Kwar, 800-MW Bursar, and 930-MW Kirthai-II. This is an investment of tens of thousands of crore in mountain gorges on a single river within a river length of fewer than 100 km.
Baglihar is the only project that Jammu and Kashmir’s fully-owned JKSPDC owns. Chenab Valley Power Projects Ltd, a joint venture between JKSPDC and NHPC, India’s hydropower giant, is implementing four power projects – Pakal Dul, Kiru, Kwar and Karthia-II. Salal and Dul Hasti owned fully by NHPC and Ratle is being executed under a fresh JV with JKSPDC in which the latter holds 49 per cent stakes.
Stakes apart, hydropower stations are gigantic projects. These need huge spaces for water storage – even in the case of run-of-the-river schemes, and a lot of tunnelling. All projects have main tunnels, both head race and tail race, and then there are a lot of additional adits and small tunnels for servicing. Even though most of the tunnels and the dams are concrete structures, having such critical infrastructure usually triggers soil erosion and soil swellings too often. The 110-km Batote Kishtwar road has been ailing for all these years. Never in a year could it operate for all 365 days.
Cause versus Consequence?
Science has fundamentally opposed the idea of correlating causes with consequences especially when there is no plausible explanation. In the case of the Pir Panchal region, however, there are striking correlations. For most of recent history, land sliding has been happening around the national highway only. However, in the last decade, land subsidence is a routine and it is happening at all places where developmental activities are going on.
Bhaderwah town and its surroundings are witnessing “region-exclusive” tremors almost every year. In August 2022, there were 21 tremors, reaching up to 3.9 on the Richter scale. Such summer tremors have been there in 2013, 2016, 2017, and 2018. In fact, 2013 was harrowing as the earthquakes touched 5.8 on the Richter scale.
Land patches are caving in at spots closer to some kind of major developmental activity. This is as true with railway projects as it is in road widening projects. Certain spots caved in because works were implemented without a detailed study.
In Sangaldan, for instance, when the railway track collapsed, it was pointed out by geologist Prof GM Bhat that it had been built “on a fossil slide”, which failed to withstand the weight and crumbled down. “We knew it for decades but we were never consulted,” Bhat said. “In this part of the Himalayas, rock types change after every half a kilometre.”
A respected geologist, Bhat insists that developmental activities can take place in any space that is as fragile as Pir Panchal but it needs adequate pre-implementation study and proper implementation mechanism.
“In the four-laning of the highway, the crisis would have been manageable had there been least vertical cuts,” Bhat said. “Impounding so much of water (in power projects dams) within a small patch has the potential of inducing earthquakes.” He insists that the managers of the water projects must ensure better maintenance of the tunnels or these could become a serious crisis in future.
Bhat, however, sees society also going unruly. “In Banihal near the Mahu Mangat side, a hillock is a completely populated town now,” he said. “Has anybody tried to verify where the waste goes? Are we expecting a major crisis in the coming days when the hill will cave in because of seepage?”
The region is a risky belt given its fragile geology. The upcoming railway line is built over three major active geological fault lines: the Main Boundary Thrust (between Udhampur and Katra), the Muree Thrust (between Baglihar and Sangaldan) and the Panjal Thrust (between Digdol and Mahu Mangat). “I never say railway tracks cannot cross fault lines but I believe that had local expertise been involved, extensive fieldwork would have reduced the costs and perfected the alignment”. Entire Jammu and Kashmir is classified as seismic zone-V, the highest earthquake-prone area. CAG has already done a thick report on the resources that were wasted because of the geological surprises that erupted after various rail projects were implemented. Parts of the alignment were changed and completed works were abandoned.
A fault line actually passes through the centre of the Baghlihar dam and most other reservoirs are very close to the fault lines underneath. “A dam burst will be worse than the earthquake itself,” Bhat, who retired recently after heading the University of Jammu’s Geology Department for a long time, said. Interestingly, the area is reporting an increased incidence of cloudbursts, seen as an indicator of climate change. “One major cloudburst near a dam can trigger unprecedented devastation.”
One such cloudburst on July 28, 2021, almost decimated Honzer, a hamlet concealed within inaccessible mountains of remote Dacchan, killing 26 residents. The bodies of almost 18 of the victims were never found.
Many geologists who studied Dalwa fall attributed the land subsidence to water seepage, and extensive cutting of steep slopes. They have suggested a robust urban land use plan, a prerequisite for any activity, especially in hilly areas. https://kashmirlife.net/o-pir-panchal-vol-14-issue-49-311779/

2023.06.07 08:36 11cat Calm breeds to help with mental health challenges?
1) Will this be your first dog? If not, what experience do you have owning/training dogs?
- First dog as an independent adult. I have experience in my early teens refining a senior lab's super basic obedience skills (sit, lay down, etc), and in my late teens/early 20s training a golden retriever from 8 weeks onward in obedience.
2) Do you have a preference for rescuing a dog vs. going through a reputable breeder
- I'm a little torn on this. I would prefer to go to a breeder to know what I'm getting with temperament, health, know the parents, know what the first 8 weeks looked like, etc, and to get the dog at a young age so that I can be their primary training influence and acclimate them to my cat early. But I wouldn't be opposed to finding a unicorn rescue dog either.
3) Describe your ideal dog.
- A mostly calm dog that is loving and loyal. A dog that would be happy to go for long nature walks, play in the yard and house, and cuddle on the couch. I'd like them to be bonded closely with me. Protective but not aggressive. Low prey drive and/or socialized with my cat from a young age. A dog that is trainable, eager to learn and please, and enjoys having a job to do. I'm hoping to owner-train some psychiatric service tasks (will never be able to afford pro SD training) so it's important to me that the dog be in tune with me and my emotions and have the ability to occasionally be a grounding, bombproof presence. I'm also a big sucker for a fluffy dog.
4) What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why?
- Medium to large dogs. I feel drawn to a large, sturdy dog. I'm looking for a breed that will not become/stay anxious if I am anxious. Some breeds I am interested in: Rough collie, German shepherd, golden retriever, Labrador retriever, Shetland sheepdog, cocker spaniel, beagle. I fantasize about having a St. Bernard, Old English sheepdog, or Bernese Mountain dog, but I don't think those are realistic options for me.
5) What sorts of things would you like to train your dog to do?
- Obedience, being able to walk calmly on a leash, travel well in a car, be calm when faced with other dogs or when faced with strange or new things. Owner-training psychiatric service tasks like interruption of anxiety behaviors, alerting to anxiety, deep pressure therapy. I would also love to try agility someday, but that's not a priority right now.
6) Do you want to compete with your dog in a sport (e.g. agility, obedience, rally) or use your dog for a form of work (e.g. hunting, herding, livestock guarding)? If so, how much experience do you have with this work/sport?
- Maybe agility someday. I have no experience with it.
7) How long do you want to devote to training, playing with, or otherwise interacting with your dog each day?
- As much as it needs. I have a lot of time flexibility in my life right now, so I think I could dedicate as little or as much time as my dog would need. Training: it would depend on the dog, enough time to learn/reinforce training, but not so much that the dog gets overwhelmed and distracted. I'm open to whatever works best for the individual dog. Playing: however long it takes until the dog is all played out and happy. :) Interacting: I'm looking for a companion dog, so I would be interacting with it in some capacity most of the day, every day.
8) How long can you exercise your dog each day, on average? What sorts of exercise are you planning to give your dog regularly and does that include using a dog park?
- It depends. I'm at a point in life where my schedule is flexible, so I can be flexible to my dog's needs. If a 30 minute walk a day and some time playing in the yard or house suffices, we'll do that. If the dog requires an hour long energy-burning walk and some more intensive play, I can manage that too. I don't see myself bringing my dog to a dog park. Chances are unless the dog is in my house or fenced yard, I would prefer them on a long leash at the very least.
9) How much regular brushing are you willing to do? Are you open to trimming hair, cleaning ears, or doing other grooming at home? If not, would you be willing to pay a professional to do it regularly?
- I'm willing to brush as often as the dog needs. Same goes for trimming hair, claws, cleaning ears. I'd be willing to pay a professional to do any grooming/maintenance I may find myself unable to do, but my preference is to figure out what my dog's needs are and then take care of my dog myself.
10) What size dog are you looking for?
- Medium or large. I'm not interested in small or toy breeds, and I don't feel equipped to handle a dog over 100 lbs.
11) How much shedding, barking, and slobber can you handle?
- Shedding: I have a black and white medium hair cat, I lost that battle long ago lol. I'm fine with hair and shedding. Barking: My preference would be less barking, or a dog that can be trained to be quiet/stop barking on command. Slobber: Would prefer minimal-to-none, but it's not a deal breaker.
12) How important is being able to let your dog off-leash in an unfenced area?
Dog Personality and Behavior
- Not important to me. I'd prefer my dog to either be in a secure area, or under my control on a leash.
13) Do you want a snuggly dog or one that prefers some personal space?
- Absolutely a snuggly dog.
14) Would you prefer a dog that wants to do its own thing or one that’s more eager-to-please?
15) How would you prefer your dog to respond to someone knocking on the door or entering your yard? How would you prefer your dog to greet strangers or visitors?
- I'd like them to be aware of our surroundings and bark/alert to knocking or someone entering the yard. Greeting strangers: ultimately I want a dog that is not afraid of or aggressive towards strangers, but any reaction from aloof to happy go lucky meeting strangers is fine with me.
16) Are you willing to manage a dog that is aggressive to other dogs?
- No, this is something I would have a difficult time with. Some barking would be fine, but anything like reactivity or wanting to attack is not behavior I would be able to manage.
17) Are there any other behaviors you can’t deal with or want to avoid?
- Any behavior that would stress or endanger my cat like chasing or aggression. Also, I'm not equipped to deal with a reactive, very anxious, or aggressive dog.
18) How often and how long will the dog be left alone?
- Less than 3 hours at a time, around 2-4 times a week. I WFH, I'm looking forward to finding a dog I can have around me most of the time and bring with me when I go to visit family nearby.
19) What are the dog-related preferences of other people in the house and what will be their involvement in caring for the dog?
- I'm the only person in the house.
20) Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? What breed or type of animal are they?
- I have a 10 year old cat that is pretty mellow and affectionate. She basically thought my old golden retriever was her dog, they got along great.
21) Will the dog be interacting with children regularly?
22) Do you rent or plan to rent in the future? If applicable, what breed or weight restrictions are on your current lease?
23) What city or country do you live in and are you aware of any laws banning certain breeds?
- USA, no laws in my town banning breeds that I am aware of, but I am also not interested in the breeds of dogs that are commonly banned.
24) What is the average temperature of a typical summer and winter day where you live?
Additional Information and Questions
- Summer, 85-95°F. Winter, 25°F.
25) Please provide any additional information you feel may be relevant.
- Not interested in small, toy, or brachycephalic breeds, for the most part, although I'm open to hearing if you have one in mind that sounds like a good match. I am aware of the fab 4 when it comes to service dogs and have experience with a lab and a golden. Neither were trained for any SD tasks though.
26) Feel free to ask any questions below
*I am in treatment long term for anxiety and PTSD. I have wanted a dog consistently over the past 2 years, but I worry that introducing a dog into my life could be either a really good thing, or a really bad thing (fear of being unable to step up/push through my Stuff and care for the dog the way they deserve) so I am trying to think through every single angle of this before I commit and bring a dog into my home. I love animals and I know it would bring a light into my life right now to have a dog's unconditional, non-judgemental love and companionship again, and to get into a daily routine for the dog's sake, as I've been unable to do so for myself. I take better care of my cat than myself, and the same would go for a dog, absolutely. I feel the level of care a dog requires could benefit my recovery process, especially if I am able to train the dog to help me with my symptoms and be a reason to get out of bed/out of the house. So if anyone has experience-- positive or negative-- with getting and/or training their dog to help with your mental health issues, I would love to hear how it went for you. I'm also open to any general feedback, or gentle corrections if I am misinformed or misguided about anything I've written here. Thanks for reading!

2023.06.07 08:08 Bonzai_Bananas Looking for a good towing vehicle for a travel trailer
Hey everyone! i posted before and I appreciate everyone's comments.
Wife and I are looking to get a travel trailer and we'll need a new vehicle to make this work. Also we live in colorado, so we are high elevation with hills/mountains.
We are looking at travel trailers that have a dry weight of about 3500#s. Yes I know a lot more math and other considerations apply.
What vehicle do you recommend?
Considerations: limit is like $65k, must seat 4 people and 2 dogs, and be comfortable.

Acura NSXs can travel at a top speed of 190 mph and a top speed of 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. While the Acura NSX is no longer available in the United States, it will always be remembered in Japan. Acura NSX epitomized what a supercar could be, and its legacy will last for a long time after it is no longer available.
The Acura Nsx: An Exotic Sports Car Worth The Price
The Acura NSX is an exotic sports car with two people inside.

2023.06.07 03:32 Courier-10 PVE Centric Hunter Exotic Armor Feedback
Hello all, I'm a Hunter main who's very big on Buildcrafting. I'd like to give feedback over every Hunter exotic with a PvE lens, positive and negative.
I will offer no solutions or potential fixes to problems I perceive, as this is not my job and such discussion is useless to Bungie anyway.
I should state my primary goal in buildcrafting is to create a consistent gameplay loop I find enjoyable. I want my builds to work in most pve content casually, with the only exceptions being grandmasters, master dungeons and master raids, and legendary / master lost sectors. I still make builds for this pinnacle content, but they have entirely different goals.
Note that I will inevitably say something any given reader will heavily disagree with. Please refrain from negative comments insulting my taste, I would like this to be a positive discussion with valid feedback, feedback viable enough for bungie to contemplate if they so choose to do so.
I will not discuss the following exotics as they have offer absolutely zero applications in PvE: - Knucklehead Radar - Stompees
I will also not consider Aeon Swift, as this is not a Hunter exotic.
Alright, let's get started. There will be no order to this.
The tele-dodge itself does not seem to amount to anything significant in PVE, so the damage boost is the focus. While the damage boost is nice, I find that buff disabling dodge ability generation restricts building around the exotic heavily - significantly reduced effectiveness of means of rapidly recharging dodge, and decreased effectiveness of other parts of the kit, like Shuriken uptime. I do not like using this exotic in PVE because it feels very restrictive if not clunky.
I find this exotic's two effects to be at odds with each other. If I want to build into its potent damage resistance and enemy weakening, I find that the Duskfield itself makes such a job almost pointless in most content, as frozen enemies do not attack you. If I want to build into the increased Duskfield and Duskfield crystal radius, I find the exotic's cooldown penalty to be restrictive, I cannot justify using this exotic over none when I simply want to throw duskfields at enemies. I used to love this exotic, but I feel like it has an identity crisis, and I do not like using it as of now.
I appreciate this exotic's damage boosting property, it is potent, especially in raids and dungeons. However, outside of damaging boss combatants, this exotic does nothing in PvE. As non boss-dps is most content, I consider this exotic poor as it lacks oomph or any synergy with anything else I can buildcraft around.
Good fashion aside, this is a super-only exotic designed to increase damage output against boss combatants. Its secondary partial refund mechanic feels far too insignificant if not unreliable to build around, so this exotic does nothing in most pve content. I find its damage also lacking, I cannot justify using this exotic.
I adore this exotic. It is simple, yet it enables so many different things. I find even more mileage out of it with the new class item mod allowing my dodge to pick up orbs.
Even with its recent buffs, I still heavily dislike this exotic. With a 7 second cooldown, the Melee reload mechanic feels inefficient, as Impetus on Stasis and Ascent on Strand do the same thing but more often. The new increased speed on melee hit mechanic feels extremely clunky, I find constantly weaving in and out of Stompees' tier speed to be extremely disorienting, as the buff only lasts 4 seconds. Because of that aspect, I would never use this exotic, even over nothing.
I appreciate this exotic's monstrous reload speed multiplier, it enables buildcrafting around one-shot reload weapons. I also appreciate its support capabilites, which is something very rare for Hunters. Even with these in mind, I do not like using this exotic as it feels very bland, it does not enable a new gameplay loop - it just makes base gunplay better.
I cannot offer any new feedback over this item. Countless others have done a better job. This exotic needs serious help.
While certainly potent and competitive against Star Eater Scales for scaling Arc Staff, I dislike this exotic for several reasons. First being that it keeps you in your super for much longer and you can't really opt out of it, this is a negative to me because I can't utilize buildcrafting aspects while in a roaming super. Second being that it is a super only exotic that offers no way to back into your super faster, leading me to feel that this exotic overall has very little oomph to it.
Despite me having multiple godrolls of this thing stuck in my vault, I almost forgot about putting this here. This Super only Exotic does not offer a Super refund or increased Super damage, it instead increases Spectral Blades' uptime. It is extremely difficult to justify using a Super only exotic in the age of Star Eater Scales, but this takes the cake as the one I am least willing to use any given scenario. Frankly, I don't know how to give feedback for this.
Excellent fashion aside, I do not think this exotic's recent buffs did enough to make me consider unironically using this exotic for function. The blind radius feels far too small to actually leverage, and doesn't do damage. The weapon damage buff period feels too short. If the build goal is to use the super to cancel the super to maximize uptime on its Arc damage buff, I think I would rather just use Bakris on stasis, which would have more uptime.
On paper, this exotic appears godlike. A second grenade charge and a potent grenade refund function is very high value. Unfortunately, Skip Grenades feel awful to use. To be more specific, at base they feel like the single least lethal grenade in the game bar a healing nade. Using Arc 3.0's Jolting nades fragment decreases this exotic's performance, as the jolt kills targets before your Skip Grenade seekers can damage them to recharge your grenade. Even with the current seasonal artifact, I cannot justify using this exotic over just picking any other grenade on arc without an exotic.
This exotic is difficult to use in multi-player content, as teammates can and will defeat your targets before your ArcBolt can complete its chain to loop itself. This issue is made worse further when including the Jolting nades fragment, causing Jolt to kill targets before the Arcbolt can connect to them. I also personally just do not like the heavy rng associated with this exotic by design, preferring reliable and consistent gameplay loops over rare moments of extreme power - yet this exotic offers neither.
A powerful, reliable exotic I used to use all of the time. Its damage buff is potent, and its healing is very nice to have. Though this exotic feels like it has poor synergy with Arc 3.0 aspects, lethal current procs from the first melee hit and often clears everything in front of you, meaning there's nothing to use Cross Counter on. It's been a while since I tried, but I don't believe this Exotic even procs off Tempest Strike hits. These components of anti synergy make the Exotic feel clunky in the modern sandbox, making me not want to use it.
Similar to my thoughts on Speedloader Slacks, I appreciate the potent boosts this exotic provides, though I do not believe it offers buildcrafting potential - it just makes base gunplay better.
- Facade (I will not dare even attempt to spell the first part)
The Anti Flinch component is mostly irrelevant in PvE, so value is instead drawn from the reliable if not indefinite Woven Mail uptime. While it is a potent effect, it feels difficult to justify using my exotic slot over the Woven Mail on Orb pickup fragment, even though this fragment has limited uptime. I believe this Exotic doesn't offer enough oomph in PvE and is difficult to build craft around dedicatedly.
I find this exotic very awkward to build craft around, as it demands high uptime on powered melee abilities and yet does nothing to grant melee energy. Bar just using the standard fare Arc Hunter loop to tackle endgame content, I believe that this exotic demands too much buildcrafting investment to justify its purely defensive boosts. I thus do not use this exotic, outside of the Arc Hunter loop.
This exotic offers a 50% increased damage for the lowest damage melee ability in the game. This buff amounts to it still doing less damage than just punching enemies normally. The increased melee recharge speed function seems to only have PvP application, and Stylish Executioner offers more than enough wall hacks for any PvE needs. I cannot justify equipping this exotic, neither can I justify building around offensive Smoke Bombs in general.
Oh, do I miss this exotic's prime within the 30th anniversary sandbox. This exotic offers indefinite invisibility, which doesn't feel at all needed in most content, as Void Hunter aspects give plenty of on demand and after-combat invisibility uptime. The reload and recovery boosts offered by this exotic feel difficult to leverage practically. I miss old Bottom Tree Nightstalker's grenade recharge and heart of the pack functions, which complimented this exotic perfectly. Without these things, I cannot justify using this exotic.
This is Hunter's only neutral game ability recharge based exotic. While its effects are potent, they only activate while sprinting, and you cannot actively damage targets while sprinting. I find that this makes building around this exotic frustrating. While it is always a good idea to wear this exotic, I tend to avoid it because trying to leverage it frustrates me, I really wish we had another neutral game exotic with ability recharge applications.
I find this exotic to lack oomph, as it only serves to refund your Blade Barrage, but does not boost its lethality, making buildcrafting around this exotic to not amount to much, though it can be done.
This exotic has two distinct effects that do not overlap. With Quiver, this exotic increases your Super's damage output but offers nothing to get your super back faster. With Deadfall(?), this exotic grants the super a potent ability refund and super refund function, but only when using your super against multiple targets at once. This conflicts with how most void Hunters use the super, to debuff singular bosses. I find both functions of this exotic to lack oomph and can't justify using it.
I appreciate this exotic's simplicity, though I wish it had more oomph to it in PvE. This is one of very few sources of Healing available to Hunter, but I don't think it provides enough of it to build craft around.
I greatly appreciate this exotic single handedly enabling an entire archetype of build, though I find it very clunky. To elaborate, when I use this exotic I find myself worrying over accidentally proccing the lucky pants effect when I am not ready for it, and this heavily restricts my gameplay, not allowing me to use my primary weapon like a primary. This heavily restricts build crafting, blasphemously forcing me to run another primary, or to use a special or heavy capable of running reliable general ad clear. I often find myself wishing I could choose to opt out of proccing the exotic's damage boosting effect in any given moment. This clunkiness fully cancels out the QoL provided by the massively increased Handcannon stats in my eyes. I do not use this exotic often because of these things.
This exotic has 5 different functions based off of subclass. Common to all of them is that I find this exotic clunky to use offensively, as the bomb does not travel horizontally at all, and its radius feels lacking. Void Bombies doesn't count as a real Suppression effect in PvE and I wish they did. Arc Bombies doesn't count as a real Blind effect in PvE and I wish they did. Solar Bombies is nice on paper for scorch stacking ignition based buildcrafting, but this build greatly suffers from my first point. Stasis Bombies... doesn't do anything. I would like it to! Strand Bombies feels redundant, Strand Hunter already has a ton of access to Sever, and I find myself wishing Bombies exploded the hologram from the new aspect, which would allow it to bypass my general use issue with this exotic.
While interesting, I find this exotic lacks oomph. The blind has no arc synergy, and I wish it had a longer duration. It also feels bizzarely inconsistent as to what enemies the blind even works on? I do not use this exotic for these reasons.
I actually used this in PvE before the recent buffs, valuing the small draw time boost it has. I find its new mechanic frustrating to buildcraft around, as it works with absolutely zero special effects like dragonfly and exotic perks. Much of the community seems to have this sentiment, too. If I use this exotic, it will be for the draw time boost and not the damage boosting function.
This exotic incentivizes a unique low-life type of build to get the most out of it. Unfortunately this type of thing is very poorly supported, requiring awkward pauses to deal damage to yourself. This type of build also has the fault of not working in most teamplay, as Solar Warlocks will heal you without your consent. I wish its damage buff had a different or alternative condition to activate.
An excellent exotic, offering a unique gameplay loop that yields a satisfying and potent payout. I have no complaints, though I don't use this exotic often because I find it overkill for most content.
The sole savior of Nightstalker 3.0 in my eyes. This exotic is extremely well rounded, unique, and offers a ton of build crafting options. I don't use it much these days though, as I am trying more ability focused builds of which this exotic does not assist me in.
My feedback mirrors the common community sentiment over this exotic: it's trying to do two conflicting things, and neither job is done well enough to justify using a glaive on Hunter. To add on to that, I find it hard to justify glaives on hunter in general since many of our subclass kits revolve around using thrown melee abilities, and glaives offer no synergy with almost all parts of these kits. I think this is my primary complaint, I wish there were more synergy between glaives and subclasses at base. I do not see myself ever using this exotic without major sandbox changes.
Much like my Graviton Forfiet feedback, this exotic's prime is in the past. Though still useful in difficult endgame multiplayer content, this exotic has lacked oomph in most content ever since Void 3.0
I adore the recent rework to this exotic, its fantastic in general play. My only direct complaint is that it's kinda hard to tell when the buff is ready to proc, and when gamblers dodge can meet its nearby enemy proc condition. Any other complaints I could come up with are more so directed at weaknesses associated with Hunter Subclasses.
General Solar Hunter Grenade and Melee Exotic Feedback:
Solar 3.0's Gunslinger revamp has a number of elements I find problems with, and these problems directly affect it's non-super exotics.
- Solar Hunter's looping ability is extremely reliant on ability kills. If a thrown melee fails to kill, a dodge is required to retry. If this fails for any reason, the loop is over. This feels sudden halt in momentum feels really bad to me, it makes me generally avoid Solar Hunter.
- Explosive Throwing Knives are often shot out of the air by enemies, severely hurting you and turning off your loop.
- Weighted Throwing Knife seems to have been bugged for a very long time now, it very often fails to refund itself with the radiant loop when it ignites an enemy, heavily restricting if not making building crafting impossible for it.
- The Radiant knife loop will often fail if it procs too quickly. Needing to actively think about pacing myself makes it hard to enjoy the radiant knife loop.
- The current Restoration bug makes Solar Hunter survivability far poorer than it would be without, forcing me to play Solar Hunter far more conservative than I'd like, which causes my loops to fail more often, and failed loops to result in my death more often.
- Caliban's Hand
Though powerful in general play, this Exotic often feels like its overkill. Ignition explosions will detonate mid-air knives, forcing me to pace my thrown knives further, and causing the loop to fail even more often. This volatility is why I haven't really used the exotic since the tailend of Haunted.
This felt balanced in the sandboxes before Solar 3.0, but its damage output feels like its been powercrept since. The Weighted Throwing Knife bug, and the lack of 3.0 synergy makes this exotic tough to justify using. The recent buff for +30 strength while the buff is active seems to be primarily pvp focused change.
- Young Ahamkara's Spine (YAS)
This exotic enables its own loop, one remarkably similar to the radiant knife loop. While I appreciate that component of it, I have two issues with this exotic. One: The loop is prone to fail, Ignitions and other related Solar Explosions can detonate the Tripmine mid-flight, and actually sticking enemies with Tripmines in pve is surprisingly difficult to do reliably. In either case the loop fails, and when the backup throwing knives fail for whatever reason, the loop ends and the build is disabled for quite a while. Two: I feel like Tripmines don't deal much damage in PvE, most of a YAS build's comes from ignitions. I know many people are avid fans of this exotic, but I am not.
This is my go to Solar Exotic, though I wish its hidden regenerate two knives at once ability were more consistent, in most cases the Radiant Loop only provides one knife charge and no part of this function is explained on the exotic. I enjoy pairing this exotic with the newly buffed Skyburner's oath and fan knives, letting me easily Ignite enemies without suffering from much of the other Gunslinger weaknesses.

| || |
I was struggling and finished 2nd, 12 sec behind the leader. I noticed my tuned quarter mile time was 12.09 sec. I experimented a bit and ended up with a quarter mile time of 11.71 sec. submitted by Direct_Charity7101 to granturismo [link] [comments]
My lap times dropped by a second. I finished ahead by 43 sec, doing mostly 2:03's. Only one 1.5 sec penalty the whole race. I could have pushed harder but just wanted to win.
For assist settings I used TCS 3 and ABS. steering sensitivity 10. I'm an average skill driver using a controller, so if I can do it you can too!
2023.06.07 03:28 AgencyImportant9729 The start of VA claim
Little back ground about my position in the military. I was Armament systems (loading missiles on the F15's. Some missiles were a 3 person lift and 2 person carry (40-60 ft from the utility trailer to the aircraft) and then a 3 person overhead lift to mount it on the launchers. I was in the front so I could only lift with one arm bc my other hand was guiding an umbilical into a slot. If you didn't do it fast enough the missile would get hung up and everyone is stuck holding this over their head. It happened from time to time). Being around loud aircraft and -60 AGE equipment. To perform the lift from the trailer it required all back. You couldn't get under it and use legs). Just a little back ground on what I did. Much more to it.
I started my VA claim process May 19th so literally just started. I got out of the service July 2020. I hurt my right shoulder in 2015 (military documented on my medical records) and has gotten worse since then). I got hurt (left shoulder and lower back) in 2017 on a deployment but did not record it on my records bc it was mission critical and I just pushed through it like we were molded to. My goal was to put in 20 which I was told at the beginning of my career that if you get hurt too much then when you get to 18 years they would most likely give you the boot. So that automatically put me in the "push through it mentality". That I did. So after 6 years I got out bc of how hurt I got so early and how much worse my back continued to get. Fast fwd to 2020 when I finally had enough of the pain I got an MRI that showed "Focal disc protrusion from L5-S1" and now I'm being seen by a spine specialist that is planning to give me injections at age 30. My claims as follows: Tinnitus, Hearing loss, right shoulder, bilateral shoulder, lower back, migraine, anxiety and depression. The only thing that was marked on my military medical records is tinnitus and right shoulder. I was told it will be an extremely uphill battle for the rest. I have 3 buddy statements for my left shoulder and back from the 2017 deployment. The anxiety and depression started hitting heavy shortly after for the simple reason of how hurt and crippled I started to feel. I could not work out the same without flaring up my conditions or work on my project car which was my passion (my escape from reality) and still is. I can't do any of those things still. I can't even stand at the sink and wash dishes longer than 15 mins without getting pain in my lower back. I can only sit for about 45 mins at my computer desk until I have to stand and walk around bc my lower back starts giving me issues. My anxiety and depression was also not documented in my military records but it is on my primary doc records. But not longer than 6 months. I just started meds for that. Again I was raised and conditioned not only by the military but by my dad to push through it don't take medicine. I Def can't lift weights over my head bc of my shoulders. And to top it all off for my anxiety and depression is that fact that I kept my mouth closed and "pushed on" that I'm possibly going to be screwed out of any compensation. The migraines started about 8 months ago. I have been keeping a log of it and I'm currently prescribed meds for my migraines, back and shoulder pain and anxiety /depression. Does anyone have similar scenarios or any advice? I feel like I'm fighting a lost cause. My VA claim rep isn't helping by saying "Yea it's going to be pretty hard but we will try". I said well it's not like I was in the finance office and trying to claim this stuff. Sorry for the long write up.wanted to be as detailed as possible.thanks in advance.
