eagleeyedtiger,

I wonder if they meant impeller? From what I can see on their FB page there’s no sign of an outboard propeller anywhere and it’s using a Chevy big block engine to power it.

It may indeed be a jet boat. EDIT: Hard to draw conclusions actually, there’s not many details on the boat and the photos and videos aren’t revealing much

eagleeyedtiger,

Ah yeah that makes sense seeing as the engine isn’t in it in those photos.

eagleeyedtiger,

How is it currently with USA peak times?

Since the first patch this week I’ve had no issues getting in, but I am in Oceania so I’m probably not playing at the peak times.

eagleeyedtiger,

Oh that’s good to hear, hopefully this weekend won’t be too bad. I did manage to get in a few times last weekend, but with matchmaking completely not working I didn’t really want to play by myself anyway.

eagleeyedtiger,

Yes thankfully, been having fun the past few nights!

Also swapping the .dll file trick worked before the patch to get me a few games on monday

eagleeyedtiger, (edited )

Take apart some old hard drives? Or just buy some of those cheap strong magnet sets from Ali/Temu etc. (no idea if they’re any good)

Edit: Just googling there seems to be a shop in Auckland that specialises in magnets: www.magnets.co.nz

Seems like they have a variety of types

eagleeyedtiger,

It’s nice to have NZ based communities on here, but I don’t see why we can’t have more generic ones either. Unless of course it’s putting to much load on the server or something?

eagleeyedtiger,

In that case I’m open to general interest communities here

eagleeyedtiger,

The more the merrier I say!

eagleeyedtiger,

Back in my day we used to print out jpegs 😁

eagleeyedtiger,

And like 10 minutes to print out. Felt like mission impossible trying not to get caught.

eagleeyedtiger,

I get that too after my first morning coffee usually

eagleeyedtiger,

As some who likes to try to get my windscreen as clean as possible, I absolutely hate the wof, rego & RUC labels. Why can’t they just be digital already!

Also hate when workshops put their huge stupid labels when you get work done on your car

eagleeyedtiger,

Oh yeah that irks me too. The AA I took one of our cars to last time used some new clear sticker under the WOF sticker with they’re AA advertising attached to the bottom of it, so you can’t remove it without the WOF sticker coming off. Infuriating. I really don’t like any kind of advertising on our cars - I always take off the license plate surrounds that dealers put on too.

eagleeyedtiger,

I already bought a car from them, I’m not going to advertise for them too! 😆

eagleeyedtiger,

Doesn’t Japan have a working culture that glorifies long working hours and dedication to work, leaving little to no time for socialising and relationships? or has that changed in the last few years?

eagleeyedtiger,

I’m not a stats person at all so I may be confused… but the article is using figures from 2023 and that graph only goes to 2022. They say the natural increase was only 19071 last year, while deaths were ever so slightly lower than 2022. Natural increase in 2022 was 20313. Were we still having a lot of COVID related deaths last year?

Edit:

This combination - fewer births and more women of child-bearing age - resulted in a record-low fertility rate of 1.56 births per woman.

The total fertility rate has been below the replacement rate of 2.1 births per woman since 2013. The replacement rate is the number of births women need to have on average for the population to replace itself in the long term, with no migration.

Apparently we’ve been below the replacement rate since 2013!?

eagleeyedtiger,

37884 deaths in 2023 vs. 38574 in 2022. So a small decrease it looks like.

eagleeyedtiger,

Ok I found this with some googling, but I think I’m not smart enough to understand it:

The total fertility rate in a specific year is defined as the total number of children that would be born to each woman if she were to live to the end of her child-bearing years and give birth to children in alignment with the prevailing age-specific fertility rates. It is calculated by totalling the age-specific fertility rates as defined over five-year intervals. Assuming no net migration and unchanged mortality, a total fertility rate of 2.1 children per woman ensures a broadly stable population. Together with mortality and migration, fertility is an element of population growth, reflecting both the causes and effects of economic and social developments. The reasons for the dramatic decline in birth rates during the past few decades include postponed family formation and child-bearing and a decrease in desired family sizes. This indicator is measured in children per woman.

eagleeyedtiger,

I think my info might be outdated, it seems like they’ve been working on changing it. According to Wikipedia their average annual working hours is less then us.

eagleeyedtiger,

It’s too late and I can’t wrap my head around it. Is there some effect from what the deaths and births are? As in it’s not necessarily old people dying and not all births are female which would then further impact the fertility rate?

I understand that the 2.1 replacement rate needed is assuming no migration. There will almost always be migration though.

I think I need to sleep and stop trying to understand this

eagleeyedtiger,

I haven’t gone past ‘Challenging’ difficulty yet, but the friendly fire makes for some funny antics. Fighting against the robots feels quite different to the bugs too, it can make it feel like a different game.

DRG is great too, although haven’t played it in quite awhile.
