My worst fear happened.
I got my dog (german shepherd) when he was a puppy, they said 8 weeks but he seemed much smaller. Since day 1 he was way more difficult than I anticipated, but no super red flags. Plus i was a first time puppy owner (never again!). Following all the puppy advice I could. He was very playful with my older small black lab/jack Russel mix, who mostly had grown up with bigger dogs. His behavior was always odd, like every time we went to the vet for his shots he would get increasingly more fearful, even though nothing eventful ever happened, nothing first visit, then next he would hide from the vet, then he would dive under the furniture as soon as we walked in (didn't matter if people were sitting on the furniture!), to me having to pick him up to get him to do anything at the vet. He used to be calm during car rides, now he hides in the back. He didn't get a whole lot of socialization, i don't have many friends plus the waiting for all the shots to be completed prior to any walks/parks. I introduced him to my moms both full grown GSDs, he was good with them but slightly fearful, and didn't want to share attention and just didnt know how to play with them, a few more times with them and one of them bit him. After that they've had a few more interactions and everything was fine, other than again, him playing weird, (he would try to slap them) not wanting them to get any attention. I never took my dogs to dog parks, and never had issues with walking with other dogs around, until recently. My GSD automatically wants to charge any dog he sees now. So, avoidance, late night walks only and he has a neutering appointment next month (booked 3 months out in advance). Fast foward to yesterday, my partner was doing yard work and needed to have the gate open. We locked the doggie door up.( I should also add that my dog hyper fixates on my partner). Well, my dog did not like that and somehow, on my life he has never done this before, manages to open up the doggie door blocker and charges outside. I honestly didn't think it was that big of deal as he's hyper fixated on my partner and would likely stay close to them, well my lab/Russel then runs out of the now opened doggie door and goes to the front, no idea where she is I go looking for her, my GSD follows me and of course there is an older women walking her small dog right accross the street. Both my dogs charge the dog, my GSD pinned the little thing down and they're throwing some paws (no biting though, thank god), my dog does put his mouth around the other one but doesn't bite, I get my GS and then my lab/russel(who's smaller than the ladys dog) chases the dog down the block. Probably one of the most traumatic things to happen regarding my dogs, and I feel absolutely awful. The ladys dog was fine, but i definetly feel so awful for traumatizing them both with my dogs, obviously. Gave her my phone number and told her to keep me updated. But I don't know what to do with my dogs. I can barley look at them right now. Is this forever? Is he a reative dog for life? Will he always behave this way towards other dogs? I already am researching behavior modification training, but I just have a really weird work schedule that I don't think most trainers will be able to accomedate, but I have to do something. If anyone actually reads this whole thing I'm open to criticism.

Display panel prices fell, 2022 display panel enterprises pressure forward
The price of LCD display panels for TVs is still falling in November and is on the verge of falling back to the level at which it initially rose two years ago (in June 2020). Liu Yushi, a senior analyst at CINNO Research, told China State Grid reporters that the wave of “falling tide” may last until June this year. For related panel companies, after the performance surge in the past year, they will face pressure in 2022.

Faced With Tight Demand, Panel Head Companies Will Make More Money In 2021

LCD display panel prices for TVs will remain at a high level throughout 2021 due to the high base of 13 consecutive months of increase, although the price of LCD display panels peaked in June last year and began to decline rapidly. Thanks to this, under the tight demand related to panel enterprises last year achieved substantial profit growth.
According to China State Grid, the annual revenue growth of major LCD display panel manufacturers in China (Shentianma A, TCL Technology, Peking Oriental A, Caihong Shares, Longteng Optoelectronics, AU, Inolux Optoelectronics, Hanyu Color Crystal) in 2021 is basically above double digits, and the net profit growth is also very obvious. Some small and medium-sized enterprises directly turn losses into profits. Leading enterprises such as BOE and TCL Technology more than doubled their net profit.
https://preview.redd.it/n0u9dnifp1pa1.png?width=1600&format=png&auto=webp&s=753be424ff67d3c43ab9227e7195d55b28087c9f
Take BOE as an example. According to the 2021 financial report released by BOE A, BOE achieved annual revenue of 219.31 billion yuan, with a year-on-year growth of 61.79%; Net profit attributable to shareholders of listed companies reached 25.831 billion yuan, up 412.96% year on year. “The growth is mainly due to the overall high economic performance of the panel industry throughout the year, and the acquisition of the CLP Panda Nanjing and Chengdu lines,” said Xu Tao, chief electronics analyst at Citic Securities. In his opinion, as BOE dynamically optimizes its product structure, and its flexible OLED continues to enter the supply chain of major customers, BOE‘s market share as the panel leader is expected to increase further and extend to the Internet of Things, which is optimistic about the company’s development in the medium and long term.
According to the performance report of TCL Technology, the revenue of TCL Technology reached 163.5 billion yuan last year, with a year-on-year growth of 112.8%; Net profit attributable to shareholders of listed companies reached 10.06 billion yuan, up 129.3% year on year.
TCL explained that the major reasons for the significant year-on-year growth in revenue and profit were the significant year-on-year growth of the company’s semiconductor display business shipment area, the average price of major products and product profitability, and the optimization of the business mix and customer structure further enhanced the contribution of product revenue. “There are two main reasons for the ideal performance of domestic display panel enterprises.” A color TV industry analyst believes that, on the one hand, under the effect of the epidemic, the demand for color TV and other electronic products surges, and the upstream raw materials are in shortage, which leads to the short supply of the panel industry, the price rises, and the corporate profits increase accordingly. In addition, as Samsung and LG, the two-panel giants, gradually withdrew from the LCD panel field, they put most of their energy and funds into the OLED(organic light-emitting diode) display panel industry, resulting in a serious shortage of LCD display panels, which objectively benefited China’s local LCD display panel manufacturers such as BOE and TCL China Star Optoelectronics.
Liu Yushi analyzed to reporters that relevant TV panel enterprises made outstanding achievements in 2021, and panel price rise is a very important contributing factor. In addition, three enterprises, such as BOE(BOE), CSOT(TCL China Star Optoelectronics) and HKC(Huike), accounted for 55% of the total shipments of LCD TV panels in 2021. It will be further raised to 60% in the first quarter of 2022. In other words, “simultaneous release of production capacity, expand market share, rising volume and price” is also one of the main reasons for the growth of these enterprises. However, entering the low demand in 2022, LCD TV panel prices continue to fall, and there is some uncertainty about whether the relevant panel companies can continue to grow.

Under The Pressure Of Display Panel Price Reduction, Panel Enterprises May Be Trapped In Profitability In 2022

According to Media data, in February this year, the monthly revenue of global large LCD panels has been a double decline of 6.80% month-on-month and 6.18% year-on-year, reaching $6.089 billion. Among them, TCL China Star and AU large-size LCD panel revenue maintained year-on-year growth, while BOE, Innolux, and LG large-size LCD panel monthly revenue decreased by 16.83%, 14.10%, and 5.51% respectively.

Throughout Q1, according to WitsView data, the average LCD TV panel price has been close to or below the average cost, and cash cost level, among which 32-inch LCD TV panel prices are 4.03% and 5.06% below cash cost, respectively; The prices of 43 and 65 inch LCD TV panels are only 0.46% and 3.42% higher than the cash cost, respectively.
The market decline trend is continuing, the reporter queried Omdia, WitsView, Sigmaintel(group intelligence consulting), Oviriwo, CINNO Research, and other institutions regarding the latest forecast data, the analysis results show that the price of the TV LCD panels is expected to continue to decline in April. According to CINNO Research, for example, prices for 32 -, 43 – and 55-inch LCD TV panels in April are expected to fall $1- $3 per screen from March to $37, $65, and $100, respectively. Prices of 65 – and 75-inch LCD TV panels will drop by $8 per screen to $152 and $242, respectively.
“In the face of weak overall demand, major end brands requested panel factories to reduce purchase volumes in March due to high inventory pressure, which led to the continued decline in panel prices in April.” Beijing Di Xian Information Consulting Co., LTD. Vice general manager Yi Xianjing so analysis said.
“Since 2021, international logistics capacity continues to be tight, international customers have a long delivery cycle, some orders in the second half of the year were transferred to the first half of the year, pushing up the panel price in the first half of the year but also overdraft the demand in the second half of the year, resulting in the panel price began to decline from June last year,” Liu Yush told reporters, and the situation between Russia and Ukraine has suddenly escalated this year. It also further affected the recovery of demand in Europe, thus prolonging the downward trend in prices. Based on the current situation, Liu predicted that the bottom of TV panel prices will come in June 2022, but the inflection point will be delayed if further factors affect global demand and lead to additional cuts by brands.
With the price of TV panels falling to the cash cost line, in Liu’s opinion, some overseas production capacity with old equipment and poor profitability will gradually cut production. The corresponding profits of mainland panel manufacturers will inevitably be affected. However, due to the advantages in scale and cost, there is no urgent need for mainland panel manufacturers to reduce the dynamic rate. It is estimated that Q2’s dynamic level is only 3%-4% lower than Q1’s. “We don’t have much room to switch production because the prices of IT panels are dropping rapidly.”
Ovirivo analysts also pointed out that the current TV panel factory shipment pressure and inventory pressure may increase. “In the first quarter, the production line activity rate is at a high level, and the panel factory has entered the stage of loss. If the capacity is not adjusted, the panel factory will face the pressure of further decline in panel prices and increased losses.”

Display Panel Prices Are Falling, And The Price Of Terminal TVs Is Expected To Continue To Fall.

In the first quarter of this year, the retail volume of China’s color TV market was 9.03 million units, down 8.8% year on year. Retail sales totaled 28 billion yuan, down 10.1 percent year on year. Under the situation of volume drop, the industry expects this year color TV manufacturers will also set off a new round of LCD display panel prices war.

2023.03.21 08:32 Roshansalunke191 External Ventricular Drain Market worldwide Growth from 2022 to 2030

The external ventricular drain market was worth USD 2.64 billion in the year 2021. The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2%, earning revenues of around USD 4.15 billion by the end of 2030.
The development of external ventricular drains is an illustration of technological modernization and progress in the neurosurgery domain. Numerous neurosurgical methods have been improved with the integration of computer-assisted steering using an amalgamation of patient anatomy and imagery in the external ventricular drains (EVD). This expertise has been united for the placing of external ventricular drains. Injection of EVDs is a vital procedure in neural care units as such drains offer ICP (continuous intracranial pressure) audit and CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) digression. Currently, the placing of external ventricular drains is among the most commonplace procedures, especially in neurological processes executed in the (ICU) intensive care unit.

As a portion of the country's GDP (Gross Domestic Product), health expenditure accounted for almost 18%. Further developed nations such as Japan, Germany, and France are too increasing their healthcare expenditure each year. The healthcare system of France includes the private-public mix of ambulatory care and hospital with a higher capacity of service supplies, as compared to the United States. Apart from advanced countries, healthcare expenditure is also increasing in emerging countries throughout the world. Emerging countries are focusing on providing improved healthcare facilities to a large populace. For instance, public health spending in India has been progressively rising over the previous decade so as to cater to its increasing population. In the financial year 2018, the cost of public health outlay by states and UTs (union territories) collectively amounted to about USD 21.14 billion. This was valued to be about 1.28% of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product.
Report Highlights:
Among the indication segment, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) dominated the overall market in 2020. The rising number of accidents and sports-related injuries are the foremost factors attributing to its large market share. The meningitis segment is anticipated to grow at the uppermost CAGR through the forecast duration.
Hospitals accounted for the major share in the end-user segment with more than 46% share in 2020 due to high preference for hospitals to carry out complex neurosurgical procedures. Moreover, hospitals are equipped with the latest equipment required for advanced procedures.
Medtronic and Integra Life Sciences Corporation accounted for a significant share of the global external ventricular drain market.
Regional Analysis:
The report includes information for Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East, and Africa. In 2020, the North America region dominated the worldwide market with a market share of higher than 42%. The U.S. indicated the highest slice in North America principally due to early application of latest healthcare technologies. Moreover, availability of latest infrastructure also supported the high market portion of North America.

Europe was the subsequent significant market chiefly due to presence of skilled researchers. Presence of major companies in the European region is also expected to lift the demand for external ventricular drain in the anticipated time-span. The Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of around6.8% in the estimate period due to increasing per capita healthcare expenditure and high number of accident-related brain injuries. Latin America and Middle East and African region will display noticeable growth.
Key Market Players and Strategies:
The key companies functioning in the worldwide external ventricular drain market are Medtronic, Integra LifeSciences Corporation, Spiegelberg, Sophysa, Möller Medical, and Fugi Systems Corporation among others.
Leading companies are investing heavily on research for improvements in the neurology sector. In June 2019, Integra LifeSciences took over Arkis Biosciences Inc. which offers a range of neurosurgical equipment’s, such as the CerebroFlo EVD catheter with Endexo technology, a perpetual additive intended to reduce the probability for catheter obstacle due to thrombus creation.

2023.03.21 08:07 Express-Seat7394 Should I buy battlefield 2042 for 20$ right now?

Hello so I have been a battlefield player for a few years now. I played bf1 5 years ago and then later I got an xbox and started playing the game through Xbox live. I have had a PC and been playing battlefield 1, 4, and 5. They're all really fun but I was thinking about buying battlefield 2042 right now since it went on sale for 20$. But the reviews are so mixed and bad that I just don't know if I should.

2023.03.21 07:57 PayinTopDolla SW WA (Camas & Washougal) is the Best Place to fatFIRE

I've been reading a lot of posts lately about good places in the US to fatFIRE to, including recent and popular examples like Las Vegas, Austin, and Arizona... but I would like to put out there another very viable option that is currently not so mainstream (maybe also a good thing): Southwest Washington (SW WA).
The common goal for people in their search is finding a place that has the right mix of amenities, tax sheltering, cost of living, and scenery. I've spent much of my career traveling literally all over the US and seeing a vast swath of metropolitans. My conclusion after maintaining as much neutrality as possible and factoring in the aforementioned criteria is that Southwest Washington is the best choice. This region consists of a few cities and is part of the Portland, OR metro. There is Vancouver, WA but it doesn't stand out for fatFIRE folks as it's a flat, normal, and dense suburb. To the East is Camas & Washougal, where things get interesting, and I'll explain more below.
Here is why these two cities are worth considering.
  1. Again, they are part of the PDX metro and just across the river from the Columbia. This means you're 20-30 minutes away from Downtown Portland and Portland International, which happens to be a great airport that's usually not crowded and highly ranked. From here, you're a 3-hour drive to Seattle and a 1-hour flight to the Bay Area.
  2. Included with the obvious amenities of being in the metro of an actual city (i.e., not a pseudo city erected in a desert that is Las Vegas) is great food, from trendy food carts to more gourmet places. Food is competitive here and the bar is set quite high with lots of choices. Media and sensationalists like to exaggerate the homeless problem, which certainly exists, as it does in Austin and most other big metros, but it's not rampant.
  3. Cost of Living - albeit it is getting higher like everywhere else, it is comparatively lower, especially on the West Coast. $1M for a house can get you a LOT of house.
  4. No Income Tax AND No Sales Tax... this is also why I recommend living across the river in WA versus Portland, OR. WA is one of the 9 states that does not have a state income tax. If you need to buy a big ticket item like a TV and whatnot, just drive over the river to Portland and buy it there with no sales tax. You could even do most of your shopping there if obliged since it's so close. One of the very few, true metro areas that offer this combo.
  5. Weather. Yes, the PNW rains and has overcast days and this one will be subjective. Maybe you prefer living in the scorching hot, dry desert of Las Vegas or Phoenix where it averages 100*+ instead, or you prefer the hot, humidity of Austin. I personally prefer the rain and having all 4 seasons in a year. If you consider the effects of global warming, being in this area may not be a bad thing in the years to come. It also isn't pouring ALL the time as some people think. It will drizzle and the winters are definitely wet, but Summer months from the end of May into October are beautiful and largely sunny days. Just look at California and how much rain they got this Winter, for being a "year-round" sunshine state.
  6. Scenery... the nature is world-class. Trees, hills, mountains, rivers, lakes, and greenery are all around you. Drive East and you're at the coast and beach. Drive South East and you can go to Bend, OR, which is turning into a resort town for PDX these days. Skiiers/Snowboaders, Mt. Hood's Timberline lodge is open 10 months out of the year. The list goes on and on... but what is almost a SECRET to people is the Columbia River Gorge towards the East... a huge canyon that the river cuts through and hosts over 90 waterfalls. Just look at it: https://i.imgur.com/3QybyLD.jpeg
  7. Now, more specifically on Camas & Washougal. Camas is a smaller, hilly, and upscale city with one of the best school districts in the metro. Great if you want to live in a more luxury-type suburb (gated communities, golf courses, etc. available). Washougal is right next door but uniquely features acreage properties if you're interested in having more space and privacy - while still being in easy access to all of the above.
That's my take and summary of why these 2 cities in SW WA stand out or should stand out.

2023.03.21 07:37 Jrubas The Wolf and the Warrior: Pt 1


Griger Kel-Am watched from his cell in the old town jailhouse as workers busily erected a scaffolding in the courtyard below. It was shaping up nicely, he thought with an appreciative nod; the skeletal beams reminded him of the bones of dead animals in the Karel Desert and that comparison almost disturbed him.
Which was no easy feat. Griger had seen the worst the world had to offer. He fought beasts in the Staygin Mountains, fended off feral bandits in the Jarel Plains, and weathered more attacks, fights, battles, and death than most people even knew existed. Nothing on earth could rattle him. He couldn’t afford to let himself be shaken. Life, he had learned, was like a surging storm tide. You either stand strong against it, or you get knocked down and swept away. Griger refused to be swept away. He refused to wind up like the old bones he stumbled across on the North Road and in the snowy stepps at the top of the world. A man must be hard and stoic to survive, and he must be harder and colder to thrive.
Despite his grizzled face, many scars, dead eyes, and unseemly facial hair, Griger, a sword for hire since before the Great Plague, had always thrived.
Sighing, Griger left the window and walked over to the door; three brisk paces. He threaded his arms through the bars and tried his best to look up the corridor. In the cells across from him, other men, their faces dirty and white, cowered, waiting for their judgement.
Their open fear disgusted Griger.
Cowards.
Griger wasn’t afraid to die. Dying was easy; you closed your eyes and went to sleep. Living...living was hard, every day a knock down, drag out fight for dominance against something. Outlaws, nature, your own inner darkness. He did not seek death, but he welcomed it. The prospect of a noose tightening around his neck, of his body jerking and dancing before many jeering eyes and spitting mouths, however, almost bothered him.
But as a wise old man he once knew had said, This too shall pass.
A sardonic smile touched Griger’s chapped lips and he shook his head like a man who couldn’t believe what he was seeing. Of all the things he’d done in his life to deserve a hanging, self-defense is what did him in. Ha.
Two weeks ago, he was following the river from the North, on foot and alone save for his sword and his rucksack. He stopped at a tide pool to drink, and was beset by a man with a knife. In his frock coat and rubberized boots, he was too well dressed to be a highwayman; he never spoke a word until he lay in the grass, his throat laid open and gushing rich red blood. “Scoundrel,” he gurgled.
Griger relieved him of his boots and pocketbook and carried on. Before dusk, he came across the village and rented a room at the inn. Women in cheap, homespun dresses haunted the halls, knocking at doors to sell their company, and Griger, lying in bed by the flickering light of a lamp, was considering spending the rest of the money on one when three constables broke down the door.
The man he killed, they told him later, was the son of the mayor. At that moment, Griger knew he was in trouble.
They refused to believe that the son attacked first and pointed to the things Griger had taken from his as proof of overland piracy, theft, and murder. He was tried in a packed courtroom and found guilty, standing tall and proud but alone as no lawyer in the land would take his case.
Out in the courtyard, someone shouted, and a team of horses neighed, Griger, sitting on the edge of his cot, looked up at the window. The light was getting weaker as night approached. Shadows, long and black, fell through the slats and made unwholesome shapes across the earthen floor. Down the hall, a man cried out for water, and elsewhere, someone raked a metal cup back and forth across the bars. Would they hang him tonight, Griger wondered, or would they wait for dawn?
“You,” someone spat.
Griger looked up to find the mayor standing at the bars, his bloated face filled with hatred. Another man was with him, this one taller and thinner. They were both clad in the finest garments, but the stranger was undoubtedly better suited. Griger took him for a government official.
“What do you want?” Griger asked, an edge in his voice.
The mayor opened his mouth to speak, but the stranger silenced him. “My name is Urick Farbin. I’m the governor of Ezk Province and I have a proposition for you.”
“What’s that?”
Farbin flashed a tight smile.
It looked to Griger like he wouldn’t be hanged at all.
And that made him smile.
***
Griger watched the countryside pass slowly by, all green hills, trickling brooks, and dense thickets. The occasional straw hut loomed out of the wilderness like an antsy thief, and six miles out of the village, they passed a stately manor house that could only have belonged to the mayor.
It was mid-afternoon and the overcast day wrapped itself around Griger like a wet blanket. The previous night, Governor Farbin sprang Griger from his cell and brought him to the inn, where he was kept under armed guard. Griger spent most of the evening in a straight back chair and whittling. You don’t have to worry, he said to the sentry standing at the door, I’m not going anywhere.
And he wasn’t. He was not an honor bound man by any stretch, but Farbin saved his life, and Griger reckoned that earned him a little loyalty.
The guards didn’t stand down, but Griger didn’t blame them. He wouldn’t have either.
In the morning, they set off in a horse drawn carriage, heading northwest along the Western Road. Now, hours later, Griger sat next to the Governor, who wore a dark cloak and wide-brimmed hat befitting his office. Beside him, the driver held the reins and stared ahead with the practiced indifference of a man used to tuning out things he wasn’t supposed to hear.
“Will you explain to me what I’m doing?” Griger asked.
Farbin was quiet for a moment, then he looked up at the sky, the muted light bathing his craggy features. “Your file says that you’ve done work for the Government.”
“Some,” Griger replied.
“You’ve handled things of a singular nature,” the old man continued. “Things that most other men have never dreamed possible.”
Gringer nodded. He had. His only oath was to himself, and he worked for whoever paid him the highest sum. Men like him were called mercenaries but he preferred to think of himself as a businessman.
“There’s a matter in a nearby village that has been ongoing for quite some time,” Farbin said, picking his words carefully. “I have sent my best agents and they’ve done nothing for it. When the paperwork on you came to my office, I checked your name, as I do all condemned men, and knew at once that you were the man for this job.”
Griger was almost touched. “What’s the job?”
The Governor turned to face Griger, his expression bloodless and sober, as though he had something great yet terrible to impart upon him. “Do you believe in werewolves?”
“Yes,” he said, “I do.”
“Have you ever killed one?”
Griger hesitated. “No,” he said, “not personally, but I was with a party that did.”
Five years before, Griger wintered in a village among the steep foothills guarding the forbidding expanse of Mount Grez. In the deepest, darkest days of the freeze, local livestock began to die, ripped asunder and strewn across snowy fields like trash. Wolf tracks larger than any Griger had ever seen led to and from each scene, and at night, high, ghostly howls rose above the shrieking wind, curdling the blood of even the most sturdy men.
After a watchman on patrol was attacked and gutted in the main square, the men of the village banded together and tracked the beast, eventually cornering it in a cave near a frozen river. Even if he lived to be a thousand, Griger would never forget the monster they encountered. Seven feet tall, coated in matted gray fur, its face canine yet human, its eyes blazed with the fires of hell, and as the men approached, it snapped and snarled, the sounds it made so close to words that even now, Griger wondered if it were trying to speak. They beset it with swords and torches, and when the dust settled, five men were dead and three were wounded. The wolf lay crumpled on the ground, decapitated and aflame. Even with no head, even with its heart divorced from its body, it screeched as the fire consumed it, a high, hitching wail that haunted Griger’s dreams for many moons after.
Farbin nodded. “I figured as much. A man as well-travelled as you has to have seen such things.”
He went on to explain that a suspected werewolf was loose in the countryside around the village of Koreth, a tiny fishing port on the sloped and muddy banks of the Rey River. Three weeks before, sheep and horses began to turn up dead, their bodies laid open and their intestines pulled from their stomachs. Before long, travellers along the Western Road started to die in a similar manner. Every time a new victim appeared, officials found large wolf tracks and strands of fur nearby.
Several nights ago, it broke into the home of a land baron and killed him, his wife, and his daughter. His young son survived, but was blinded in one eye.
‘It was a massive beast,’ the boy told the Governor, a personal friend of the baron. ‘It stood seven feet tall, was as wide as it was long, and had the snarling face of a man mixed with a dog.’
“You want me to kill it,” Griger said. It was not a question.
“Yes.”
The carriage jostled as its big wheels splashed through ruts and puddles. “And in return…?”
“You’ll get a full and unconditional pardon.”
Hmm. Griger considered the offer carefully, even though he was in no position to bargain. “Alright,” he said at last, “I’ll do it.”
They arrived at the village three hours later. Perched on the banks of the lazy river, it seemed a single estate rather than a town. A stone wall, roughly a dozen feet high, enclosed it, pitched roofs visible beyond. Two guards in helmets and chainmail, swords on their hips and crossbows in their hands, stood at the gate, their expressions stony and as hardscrabble as the fields sloping away from the walls.
Inside, tiny buildings lined narrow dirt streets and people in plain, homespun clothes went about their business, pushing carts, hawking vegetables, and playing dice. Old men sat in canned chairs before the town pub and a group of boys chased each other back and forth through shadowed warrens, their faces smudged and weatherbeaten beyond their years. Chickens and pigs, both plump and hale, ran free, the former flapping their impotent wings and the latter snorting happily as they wallowed and shat. Griger spotted a blacksmith in his quarters, striking an anvil with a hammer, and wondered idly if he had any interesting items for sale.
“The people here are stubborn and refuse to flee,” Farbin said.
Griger faced forward. “These types usually are.”
“You are not to worry about their safety,” Farbin warned. “They can see to themselves. Your only concern is to be the wolf.”
“Understood.”
The driver parked near the town inn and tied the horse to a hitching post while Griger and Farbin got out. Griger rolled his neck and flexed his shoulders. After so many years of walking wherever he went, he was unaccustomed to sitting for long periods and inevitably ended any long, stationary trek sore.
Past the batwing doors, a shadowy lobby lit by candlelight greeted them. Farbin led Griger directly up the stairs and to a tidy room with a single, neatly made bed and a desk beneath the window. “These are your quarters,” Farbin said.
“Spacious,” Griger said unsarcastically. He sat on the edge of the bed. “What leads do you have on this wolf?”
“None beyond what I’ve told you,” Farbn said. “My men have scoured the countryside but they haven’t found a thing.”
Griger hummed. “No tracks? Droppings? Nothing at all?”
“Not beyond what I’ve told you.”
That was odd. Werewolves rarely strayed far from their den. Unless they were of the rare half-breed that turned upon the cycle of the moon, man at day and beast by night. But those were as common as an honest man in the High Council - not very damned common at all.
“What are you thinking?” Farbin asked.
Griger said what was on his mind.
“But those aren’t real,” the Governor said, a hint of confusion in his voice.
“I tell you they are.”
Farbin’s brow furrowed with incredulity. “A man cannot simply change his form, nor can a wolf, for that matter. It goes against all logic.”
All Griger could do was spread his hands. That a man - even a large one - could transform into a werewolf (and that a werewolf could shrink back to the size of a mere man) did defy logic. Griger could not account for it, but he knew it to be so, and he said as much. Farbin, shaken by the confidence in Griger’s tone, nervously scratched the back of his neck and looked constipated. “Put aside what you think you know and ask yourself. What if it is a wolf-man?”
“But what if it isn’t?” Farbin countered.
Griger ticked his head to the side in acquiescence. “Maybe it’s not. Maybe your men have failed to uncover a den large enough to house a seven foot tall monster. Maybe they’ve been looking up each other’s backsides instead of where they should be.”
A dark shadow flickered across Farbin’s face. “My men are highly trained and highly skilled.”
“That’s why you came to me.”
Farbin fumed. “I came to you because you have experience in such things.”
“Right,” Griger said. “I do. And I’m telling you - in my expert opinion - that if there is no den, the wolf is a changeling. I cannot explain the science behind how and why it is a changeling. I don’t know how it can happen...but it does. You have to consider the possibility that you are looking for a phantom, that your wolf may be out there right this second ploughing a field or herding sheep and not asleep in a cave waiting to be found and made.”
Farbin turned away and put his hands on his hips. No shoulder had ever been colder, and for a second, Griger thought the old man was going to send him back to the gallows. “Alright,” Farbin finally said, “suppose it is a half-breed. What then?”
“I want to see where the latest attack happened.”
A half an hour later, Griger and Farbin stood before a large stone house with a slate roof and wide windows. A dirt drive looped around an ornate fountain and tall trees rustled in the new breeze. Several Provincial Guardsmen accompanied them, all with swords and crossbows and one, the commander, with a rare flintlock on his hip. Farbin led Gringer to the west side of the structure. “The wolf came in through the servants’ entrance,” he explained. A set of paw prints led to the door and Gringer knelt to study them. Roughly half a foot apart, they were slightly larger than any other he had seen.
Inside, the house was dark and cold, shadows clustered in corners like demons waiting for the fall of night to advance their ghoulish aims. Dried blood stained the wooden floors and spackled the bare walls. “Has anyone seen this creature and lived but the boy?”
Farbin shook his head. “No.” His face was white and strained, the somber, funeral atmosphere affecting him.
“You’ve told me everything?”
“Yes.”
Griger nodded to himself. If the wolf were a changeling, someone, somewhere likely would have seen it coming or going. That was a strike against his theory. On the other hand, there were likely dozens of isolated farms and homesteads scattered through the surrounding countryside. The wolf could be anyone from anywhere.
“I want to talk to the locals,” Griger said as he and Farbin walked back to the carriage.
“Right.”
“I’ll also need a team of men at my disposal,” Griger said. “And a sword.”
They were sitting across from each other in the carriage’s enclosed cab. Without, the sky was beginning to cool to purple and evening gloom stealthy crept from the forest. “We’ll get you one.”
“It must be made with silver,” Griger said.
Farbin frowned. “Silver is a poor alloy for sword-making.”
“But it’s the only alloy for werewolf killing,” Griger said. “It shouldn’t be made entirely of silver, but there must be some in it, the more, the better.
Farbin nodded that he understood.
By the time they made it back to the village, full dark had fallen. The streets stood deserted, the animals locked up for the night and most of the people hunkered in their homes. A few guards walked the lanes and dooyards, bows and swords at the ready, and a stray cat with no tail slunk furtively between piles of refuse, its ears laid flat against its skull and its fur matted and crisscrossed with scars from battles past.
The only activity was at the pub attached to the inn, where lights burned in the segmented windows and the chatter of many voices drifted into the street, occasionally flaring in laughter or song. Apparently, those hearty souls refused to let a wolf stand between them and their end-of-day festivities.
Griger’s respect for them increased.
Before entering, Farbin and Griger called on the blacksmith, a burly man with a bald head and a mustache that reminded Griger of walruses he had killed and eaten at the top of the world. Griger explained his need and impressed upon the man a sense of urgency. “I need it as soon as you can possibly have it ready.”
The blacksmith nodded gamely. “I’ll have it by dawn.”
Farbin took out his purse and paid, then they made their way to the inn.
Inside, a roaring fire crackled in the stone hearth and lamps on the walls sent shadows flickering across the floor. A dozen men sat at the bar with stines of beer and a half dozen more occupied the many tables in the middle of the room. A barkeep kept the drinks flowing while a pretty waitress with her blonde hair done up in an elaborate braid like a golden tiara brought trays of beer and pretzels to the tables.
Griger and Farbin sat at an empty table near the fireplace and Farbin removed his gloves. “Men will make merry even while the world burns around them,” he mused.
“Why not,” Griger said, “they can’t do it in the grave.”
The women came over and they ordered a pitcher of beer and a sandwich each. While they waited, Griger went to every man one-by-one and asked them about the wolf. They responded, to a man, with an eye roll or a dismissive laugh. None were worried in the slightest. One man lifted his brow in a pitying sort of way and looked Griger up and down as though he were mad. “Werewolves? Why, those were banished from the Realm centuries ago, it’s all much ado about nothing.”
“It’s a big wolf,” the barkeep said, “and dangerous too, that much is fact. But it’s a lot of hysteria. People today are too goddamn soft. In my time, we had wolves and bears too. If they acted out of line, we hunted them down and cut their heads off.”
The last man Griger came to was a wispy, white-haired oldster with rheumy eyes and three days’ worth of stubble covering his angular chin. Baggy brown clothes, old and wrinkled and caked in the dirt of the field, hung slack from his scrawny frame, and his long, spindly fingers threaded through the handle of his mug like fleshless bone. If Griger had ever seen a man who bore the official title “Town Drunk” he wouldn’t look the part any more than the old man.
Before Griger could ask him a single question, he spoke in a rusty voice that conjured images of graveyard gates in the dark Province of Helem. “I seen it,” he said, “and it weren’t no regular wolf neither.”
The barkeep sniffed. “You see lots of things, Sel. Like them little pink elephants.”
A wave of mean-spirited laughter ran through the bar, and Sel’s jaw clenched. Griger sensed that Sel was often made sport of at the bar.
Ignoring the other, Griger asked, “You’ve seen it?”
Sel nodded and held up three fingers. “Thrice, in fact,” he said with a belch.
“Tell me.”
The old timer looked up at him with a twist of suspicion. “Down by the road leadin’ up,” he said.
“All three times?”
“All three times,” Sel confirmed.
Once a mason, Sel had moved to the village ten years before to try his hand at farming, he explained. His homestead, comprising five acres, a tumbledown barn, and a decomposing shack masquerading as a house, sat below the walls, in a hollow between the hill and the river. Many nights, he sat on the front porch and “communed with the King” (King Rum, Griger assumed). From that perch, he witnessed “The damned beast” loping toward town. “The first time, I seen’t it over in the road,” he said, pronouncing road as rud. “I have good eyesight and I knew right off it weren’t normal, so I jumped outta my chair and ducked down real low so ways he couldn’t see me.”
Sel couldn’t provide a description of the wolf beyond “near eight damn feet tall and built like a mountain” but Griger didn’t need one. The old man’s story supported his supposition that the wolf was coming from somewhere else and not a den in the hills. Why would it come down the middle of the road each time? The only thing to the south was the river and open fields dotted by stands of forest, all of which Farbin’s men had already searched.
Werewolves are nocturnal creatures who sequester themselves somewhere dark and dry during the day. Farbin’s men should have found it by now. That they hadn’t suggested that it was a changeling.
Thanking Sel for his help, Griger went back to the table and sat across from Farbin. “The baron’s house lies in the direction of the river,” he said, more to himself than to the Governor. “What of the other attacks?”
“Mainly in that area,” Farbin said, “why?”
“The changeling - and that’s what it is - comes from across the river. How many homesteads are there beyond the banks?”
“At least two dozen,” Farbin said.
Griger crossed his arms and thought for a moment. “I want your men, tomorrow, out there going door to door with garlic. Make everyone they come across smell it and anyone who sneezes is put under watch.”
The Governor looked stricken. “But...why?”
“Changelings are allergic to garlic,” Griger said.
Farbin pursed his lips in contemplation. “Alright,” he said, “I’ll have them start at first light.”
After dining, they adjourned to their rooms, Farbin on one side of the hall and Griger on the other. A team of six Guardsmen took up position in the empty saloon and kept watch, ready to roll out at a moment’s notice. Griger threw the window open and perched on the ledge, the night breeze washing over him and rustling his graying hair. He rolled a cigarette, lit it with the bedside candle, and looked up at the glowing face of the waxing moon. Tomorrow night it would be full and the changeling would be compelled to turn and hunt as the tide was compelled to crest. It could come tonight still, but unless it was killed, it would return tomorrow for certain, mad with bloodlust.
Well past midnight, Griger blew out the candle and retired. The mattress was far too soft and it took him nearly a half hour of tossing, turning, and muttering curses to himself to find a position he liked. Once he did, he fell into a light sleep from which he was aroused near dawn by a knock at the door. One of the guards informed him that the blacksmith was finished with his sword, and after dressing, he and Farbin went to collect it. Comprising a simple blade with a guard and a grip, it was far from the most opulent weapon Griger had ever wielded, but it was well-suited to his needs and fit comfortably in his hand.
Back at the inn, Farbin gathered every available man under his command, including the constable and his three deputies, and ordered them to sweep the countryside as Griger had suggested the night before. They showed no reaction despite their lord’s strange request, and departed in a single file line.
The saloon opened for breakfast at six and Griger and Farbin each had a plate of eggs, bacon, and beans. People began to drift in as they ate, Sel the Drunkard at the head of the pack. The maiden, who quartered somewhere upstairs, came down in a simple white dress beneath a waist apron, and Griger’s eyes tracked her as she carried out her functions. The dress - loose and high cut - revealed nothing of her bosom, but pulled tight across her bottom when she leaned over to set food and coffee in front of her guests. Their gazes met, and her eyes flicked quickly away like two timid minnows in a fish bowl.
She was beautiful.
She reminded him of someone.
His mind went back to the jagged mountains atop the world, to a little cabin where weary travellers waited out the snowstorms that raged sometimes for weeks in the winter. There, in one of the most isolated outposts of the Realm, lived a woman Griger had known. She was tall and gaunt whereas the barmaid was average and healthy, her hair was black to the maiden’s blonde, but their eyes were the same breathtaking hazel. Now, staring at his plate, his chest stirred in a way that it hadn’t in years.
He didn’t like it.
“...else,” Farbin was saying.
“Yeah,” Griger said, as though he knew what Farbin had said. Now, the woman he loved one winter was on his mind and his mood was verging on foul. He recalled the way her hair brushed the creamy slope of her throat when she turned her head, the sound of her laughter, how her heels dug into his behind, urging him deeper unto her.
He was young, then, and a fool. People, he learned later, come and people go. Loving someone...indeed even hating them...was pointless, for in a breath of summer wind, they’re gone.
After finishing with breakfast, Farbin requested a metal tub be filled with water so that he could bathe. While he did that, Griger threaded his sword through his belt and walked down to the river, keeping his eyes open for wolf tracks. He spotted a few in the dirt edging the road, all pointing in the direction from which he had just come, and squatted down to examine one more closely.
Just before reaching the water, Sel’s farm appeared on the right, the main house seeming to sag in the middle as though under the burden of years and the field out back overgrown and gone to seed. The place looked as though it had died, come back to life, then died again. The screen door, which naturally hung askew, banged open, and Sel himself backed out butt first, a ceramic pot in his hands. He turned, saw Griger, and hesitated, then ducked his head and scurried down the stairs, disappearing around the side of the house Griger lingered a moment, then followed, tangles of grass pulling at his boots. In the back, a clear patch boasted several pots like the one Sel had come out with, each blossoming with an assortment of multicolored flowers. Sel knelt before one and heaped rich soil in with his hands. A gust of wind flipped his lank, white hair back and forth, and a satisfied smile played at the corners of his thin mouth.
“You garden?” Griger asked.
Sel shot him a dirty look. “I do,” he said, a defensive edge in his voice. He stopped, favored the flowers with a sober look, and added, “These plants are the only friends I’ve got.” He chuckled self-consciously.
“Plants seem like they’d make poor friends,” Griger said. “When the first frost comes, they leave you.”
Sel ticked his head to one side in acquiescence. “Tis better to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all.”
An image of the girl at the top of the world flashed across Griger’s mind, and for a moment he could feel, feel, her presence. “I don’t believe that,” Griger said. “Loss is hard for a man who’s known love.”
“Still better than never knowing it at all,” Sel said and got stiffly to his feet. He dusted his hands on his pants.
“You’ve never lost someone,” Griger said.
“You’ve never loved someone,” Sel countered.
Griger stiffened. Mouthy old bastard, yes I have.
“What do you want?” Sel asked.
“I wanted to ask you about the werewolf.”
Sel’s face crinkled. “I told you everything I know.” He started walking back to the front of the house, and Griger fell in beside him.
“Is there anywhere around here you think a werewolf might live?” Griger asked. “Caves? Dens? Anything.”
“There’s some caves about,” Sel said, “other than that, I can’t say.”
They were on the porch now, Sel holding the door open.
“Can you tell me your story one more time?” Griger asked. “Maybe it might jog something you forgot.”
Sel sighed. “I don’t have nothin’, okay?”
He started to go inside, but Griger stopped him. “Please?”
The old man looked at him, then sighed. “Fine. Come in.”
They sat in Sel’s tiny and cluttered parlor. The furniture was as old and threadbare as the man who owned it, and the simple walls were crowded with old photos, many of them featuring a smiling woman with dark hair. She looked nothing like the girl at the top of the world, but Griger was reminded of her anyway. “Your wife?” he asked.
Sel, seated in an armchair across from him, busied himself pouring Griger a cup of tea. “Yes,” he said shortly.
From his tone - and the woman’s absence - Griger inferred that she was dead. “I’m sorry.”
Sel’s hand shook as he pushed the cup across the table. “So am I,” he said.
“Children?” Griger asked.
“Three,” Sel said. “Two boys and a girl.” Tears crept into the old man’s faded eyes and he fixed his gaze on a point over Griger’s shoulder. Open displays of emotion made Griger uncomfortable, and he shifted in his seat, sorry that he had brought the topic up. “We were married thirty years,” Sel said. His lips trembled and Griger thought he was going to break down crying. Instead, he smiled. “Those were good years.”
Griger nodded to himself. “I bet.”
He must not have sounded convincing, because Sel creased his brow. “Are you married?”
“No.”
“Ever loved someone?”
“No.”
Sel looked at him with a frank directness that bordered on mind-reading, and though it wasn’t possible, Griger could almost imagine the old man was seeing into his mind...and his heart. “You’re a liar.”
Griger considered his reply for a long time. “When I was a boy,” he said. “I thought I was in love.”
“What happened?”
Perhaps the old man had cast some kind of pall over him...or maybe he was in a rare mood...but Griger heard himself answer honestly. “I left her.”
A heavy silence lay between them.
“You left her?”
Griger nodded. “I moved on. She had her ways and I had mine. I didn’t see us working.”
“You regret it.”
“Yes,” Griger responded instantly. “I wish I tried.”
Sel nodded understandingly. “All boys make mistakes. Some are just luckier than others, I reckon.” He laughed, his posture relaxing, and Griger realized he was starting to like the old bastard.
“True,” he said. “Now your story…”
Sighing, Sel lifted a hand. “I don’t have much ways else to say.” He ran through his story just as he had before, with no additions or subtractions.
Griger nodded that he was satisfied, and got to his feet. “That’ll be all.”
Sel walked him to the door and stuck out his hand. “That damned thing’s a monster,” he said as they shook, “you watch yourself.”
“I can handle a werewolf,” Griger assured him.
Later on, after returning to the inn, Griger and Farbin rode out to meet the men on the other side of the river, catching up to them at a fork in the road. “No one’s sneezed or broken out, sire,” Farbin’s second-in-command, a tall, rodent-faced man, reported.
“Expand the dragnet,” Griger said.
Rat-face looked at Farbin for confirmation, and the Governor nodded.
They would find the wolf...or the wolf would find them.
Griger wanted the former, but would settle for the latter.
If he had to.

2023.03.21 06:21 jerrygrzegorzek Which approach to distribution to choose?

If the aim is to secure a niche market with a high-quality image product (e.g. branded natural cosmetics), then using Selective Distribution to sell through a few carefully selected and exclusive food retailers will be successful, or Exclusive Distribution to make the product available only in one place.
If, however, the marketing aim is to achieve maximum sales and distribution coverage (e.g. chocolate bars and soft drinks) in a mass market, then the business should use Intensive Distribution utilizing all available outlets.
As with all components of 4Ps of Marketing Mix, distribution strategy must be integrated with the marketing objectives of the business and clearly linked with the other components of the Marketing Mix for an effective and convincing overall marketing strategy to be developed.

2023.03.21 06:11 Head_Energy9380 Should I be concerned if my new puppy won’t leave his bed?

Hey all, I just got an 8 week old Dachshund puppy today and I’m sure this is normal behavior for a young pup who is first day away from his mom and siblings but he has been sleeping nonstop and won’t leave his bed since we brought him home. He had to endure a long drive (about 3 hours) from the breeder’s home to ours and he did wonderful. I’m a little worried about him, he’s been home for about 7 hours and has shown no interest in leaving his bed. I have taken him off it for potty and food/water. He has eaten all his food and drank water, went potty, but he hasn’t been too crazy about exploring or playing. He just goes right back to his bed which I assume is his safe space. He doesn’t mind pets and cuddles, he seems to love them. He doesn’t really whine except when he needs something. I’m just hoping that this is just a first day blues thing for him and he will eventually warm up to us and the house.
He isn’t my first puppy (and definitely won’t be my last lol). I’ve raised various types of dogs and currently have a Maltese mix. But I’ve never had a pup this quiet and still even on the first day. Has anyone else experienced this with their pup? Should I be concerned? And is there anything I can do to help get him to want to explore and play? Thanks.

2023.03.21 06:11 weezy2468 How hard are avocado trees to grow?

Howdy! New to growing and so far have Olive and Lime trees and it’s going well. I want to get an avocado tree in the mix!
I went to local “big box” nursery and sales guy there was trying to upsell me on “avocado tree insurance” - because he said that 1 in 5 avocado trees “just die”. And this guy wanted to sell me a $1000 tree for a 36”box!!
So… my questions:
How hard are Hass to grow in the ground? What size tree should I purchase that improves my chance of success? Any other tips?
I’m in SoCal 10a, and can get it in a spot in my yard with good drainage.
Thanks!

2023.03.21 05:33 Princessktp New to this sub, just wanted to vent

My bf (27m) and I(26f) adopted a shih tzu-chihuahua-Yorkie mix puppy at about 8 weeks old last year in April. She is about to be a year old next month and she is extremely reactive to any new or outside stimuli. Socializing her was tough as I didn’t really know how to go about it without traumatizing her. Going on walks feels daunting and I’m constantly working with her and her reactivity. I have a dog trainer and right now we’re focusing on leash training outside, getting her used to being outside where people and noises are a constant. I’m pretty sure her reactivity stems from fear and not aggression since she’s a tiny dog. I recently had a friend and her gf come over with their “angel” of a dog and of course, I’m jealous of anyone who has a naturally chill dog bc my dog is the opposite. Of course, my dog freaked out at them and then really freaked out whenever the dog did anything while in the house. My friend then reminded me that I spent a lot of money on a dog that stresses me out while she only spent $200 on her perfect companion. I went along with it in the moment, but the comment really bothered me bc I didn’t know she would be reactive or even what a reactive dog was, she is my very first dog. My friend probably didn’t intend on upsetting me with the comment but it just added to me feeling stupid about getting her. Ultimately, I feel stupid for buying her from a breeder and spending way too much at the time but also bc she is such an amazing dog outside of her reactivity. I worry about our future bc I know it won’t ever truly go away and I struggle with my own mental health issues. Adding this on top of it makes me want to give her away and find that chill dog I’ve always wanted but obviously, I love her and I want to keep her. Just hate it when people don’t understand the struggle of having a reactive dog and wanted to get this off my chest.

2023.03.21 03:34 Essauad1991 Proposing with New Rattos!

Idk if this is the right place, but I have had multiple batches of little ones, and sadly we lost our old men in a 2 month period a couple months ago. I told my partner that we needed a little time for our hearts to heal. Lately she has been looking at breeders and pups like mad! Also I am looking for a way to propose. We have been together for 5 years. I was thinking why not mix the two in some way. New pocket puppies and proposing! Any ideas? Much help appreciated! Thanks for all the post I love seeing all the cute rattos!

2023.03.21 03:23 yearroundcyclist SBC 4130 XPLR AXS All Road

SBC 4130 XPLR AXS All Road
I want to provide a review of the State Bicycle Company (SBC) 4130 XPLR AXS All-Road bike. I am doing this because there are several competing views of this bicycle. It seems people either love the bike or they hate it. I purchased the 4130 All-Road back in December and have now put close to 400 mixed-use miles on it. I should add that I have been riding for years and have relatively high-end bikes (i.e. all carbon Specialized Tarmac Road Bike, RSD Mayor Fat Bike), and I wanted to purchase a bike I could ride anywhere and not worry about ruining a very expensive purchase. Here are the highs, lows, and what the hell were they thinking about this bike.
Highs - Price. I purchased the 4130 XPLR AXS (SRAM eTap electronic shifting) when it was on sale for $1,399. The normal price is $1,999 and this is still a great price considering the drive train. - Steel frame is compliant and relatively quick for a steel all-road bike. - The SBC Monster Carbon fork is light and marries nicely to the steel frame to provide a rigid, yet compliant and comfortable front end. - SRAM AXS eTap (Rival) drive train shifts like butter. The best shifting I have ever experienced, and I have been riding for years. - Wheelsets are extremely capable for the price (I purchased both the 700c and 650b sets). - All welds are clean and tight. - State’s customer service is extremely responsive (I would say amazing).
Lows - Paint is a little thin and the first frame I received had a minor scratch, but SBC resolved this by sending a different unit within two days. Honestly, this was not a big deal, but it is a new bike so it should be nearly perfect. - Tires – The 650b wheelset came with Vittoria Barzo tires. These may be the worst tires I have ever ridden and would not recommend them to anyone. The 700c wheetset came with Vittoria Terreno Zero tires. These tires are okay on pavement and hard packed gravel, but I would not recommend for loose gravel. - Saddle is okay, but not something I would consider for long-distant riding. It is heavy and loses firmness very quickly. - Peddles are heavy and provide very little grip. - 42t Chainring would be better if it was 38t or 40t. Lacks a little on the low end of gears.
What the hell were they thinking - Extremely outdated seat post with single screw mount which easily strips, even when properly torqued. - Brakes – The 4130 XPLR AXS comes with SRAM hydraulic brakes which are awesome. However, the base level 4130 all-road comes with SBC branded Sensah mechanical brakes. One of my friends purchased the base level 4130 and I had an opportunity to take it for a test ride. Those brakes are horrible. I would say they are absolutely dangerous. If you get the base level bike, I highly recommend changing the brakes immediately. They may be okay for casual riding, but not for serious riders.
I would highly recommend the bike to anyone looking for an all-road/gravel bike, but do not want to spend a ton of money. With a few minor tweaks, the bike is more than capable and a hell of a lot of fun to ride. Here is my final configuration of the bike:
SBC 4130 All Road Frame (Stock) SBC Monster Carbon Fork (Upgrade) SBC Drop Bars and Stem (Stock) SBC 700c wheelset (Stock) SBC 650b wheelset (Add-on) SRAM Rival AXS eTap 1x12 (42t x 10-44t) drivetrain (Stock) SRAM hydraulic disc brakes (Stock) Whiskey carbon seat post (Upgrade) Prologo Dimension saddle (Upgrade) Schwalbe 700c G-One Allround tires - tubeless (Upgrade) Vittoria 650b Mezcal XC-Race tires – tubeless (Upgrade) Kona Wah Wah composite pedals (Upgrade)
Bike weight with two bottle cages, pedals, wheels, and tires 23.75 lbs with 700c wheels and tires 24.25 lbs with 650b wheels and tires

Hey all, time to reign in the collection with a massive sale! Lets get right to it:
Payment: Paypal FF, Yolo's have priority!
Timestamperooni

Spyderco Para 3 -- Knifejoy Excl in 20CV (Video)
-Modded with Flytanium Lotus Para 3 scales
-Condition: Modded/Disassembled. Slight snail in showside scale (see video)
-Knife has not cut anything, nor been carried.
Bought a fresh knife from Knifejoy, disassembled it (destructive process), then plopped flytanium scales on it.
Beautiful satin hardware and 27.5v Blue Anno
SV $225 SOLD for $225

Spyderco PM2 -- Aramis Grand Line + Hand Forged Damascus Blade (Video)
Heavily Modded - Picked up on the swap and modded some more!
- Aramis Carbon Fiber PM2 Grand Line scales (absolutely stunning)
- Michael Reents Hand Forged Damascus (~58 Rockwell)
- Custom Clip, maybe MXG Gear?
Comes with Original Spyderco CPM S45VN Blade, and Camo G10 Scales, + original/extra Washers
Both blades are in excellent condition. Damascus Blade has been sharpened on my Wicked Edge at 18.5DPS
Aramis Scales have no flaws (G10 Scales un-used as well). The blade was sharpened on my Wicked Edge system with a 18.5DPS edge. There is some blade play, and its slightly off center. The S45VN Blade is very well centered. I hand filed a sharpening choil into the Damascus Blade for ease of sharpening
If you've never tried or heard of Aramis' line of scales... now is your chance!!
SV $375

Grimsmo Rask #1144 - Plum Scales with Gold Hardware (Video)
Date Completed - June 16 2022
-All Original Hardware Included (Nano Oil, Sticker, ID Card, Foam, Torx Bit, Knife, Case)
-Not first owner, has small tumble dents in scales. Maybe considered damage, but it came that way.
-Blade - RWL 34 Stonewashed
-Scales - Plum Crosshatched
-Disassembled: Yes
Plum color is vibrant, then with finger oils, the shade is a darker purple/plum. Very beautiful in sunlight. Perfect action, detent is crispy, absolutely fall shut as to be expected with Grimsmo
SV: $950

Holt Morpheus #93 - Blue (32v)/Bronze (15v) Dual Anno - Bronze Clip and Hardware (Video)
-Comes with Black Taco Pouch (with Red Holt Logo), the Detent Tool, and Selinko ID Card
-Birthdate 12/20/2021
-Refined - Feather Pattern
-There are some scratches on the pocket clip, and also some from the blade (but they look to be from the stonewashing
The build quality, design, feel, and all things aesthetic on this knife are 10/10. I don't like the blade geometry though, and this one happens to be a bit dull around the belly. I haven't sharpened it, thought I did lightly strop it a bit.
SV $700 SOLD for $700

Benchmade Bugout (Modded) - S90V, Flytanium Crossfade Scales w/ Lightning Ano (Video)
-This custom Bugout is a mashup of 3 knives. It sports the Red aluminum Thumbstuds/Spacers, and Black Steel Liners from the Aluminum 535-4Bk.
-Flytanium Crossfade scales which have been polished, then flame anodized to take on the classic "Lightning Ano". Both scales are unique in colotone.
No Original hardware, and the box is a Mini Osborne 945BK-1. Sorry! It does come with the Benchmade microfiber pouch though
SV $250

Benchmade Bugout 535BK-2205 - Jade G10 scales, CPM-M4 Blade (Black Coating), Limited Edition
-This bugout is sporting all the original hardware from a 535BK-2205, except that it has custom Flytanium Crossfade scales (original scales included though).
-The Crossfade scales have been annodized a green gold
-The Blade is a Limited Edition, and annoyingly, it came to me with faint trails on the blade. If that's the type of thing that bothers you...welcome to my world.
All black hardware, striking green/gold titanium scales. Fall Shut, Great Centering, mild (benchmade axis lock) blade play.
SV $225

Benchmade Bugout Heavily Modded 535. S30V Satin Blade
-Tons of Titanium in this puppy. Blue anodized (27.5V) Flytanium Crossfade scales
-MXG Gear Clip (my favorite for Benchmades)
-Satin Titanium Thumbstuds, and Backspacer
-Silver hardware for Pivot, screws, and Axis Bar
This knife came to me used, and sharpened unevenly, So I reprofiled it on the wicked edge -- Its now 18.5 Degrees Per side, and stupid sharp. I didn't lap it though, because once things get too shiny for me, I stop using them. I didn't want someone to inherit that "safe queen" ideal for these bugouts. (Ask me for pics of my user bugout like this one!!)
Lets call this a working edge--Ground to 3000 Grit, cuts phonebook paper pretty dang gud.
Centering is dead on, no blade play, fall shut. Faint snail trail on the blue scale, sadly :(
SV $225
Lastly,
Shirogorov F95 with Carbon Fiber Inlays. Old school, S90V Blade
-This is an older Shiro model, with barrel spacers, not a solid Ti backspacer.
-S90V Blade sharpened to a Mirror edge by the person who owned this before me
-MRBS, beautiful glide shut action typical of Shirogorovs. (A little faster action than my Quantum Gen 1)
-I have not disassembled it, though I believe it has been by previous owners. Not sure.
This F95 is a super gem, but I found my ideal Shiro in the F3NS, so I'm willing to let this one go. It's an old school Shiro which I love, and the action on it is just wonderful. But I can't keep it and continue to explore the knife world, so off it goes.
SV $900

And thats it! For now...
I am greatly interested in acquiring a TRM Shadow, and I'll look at fair trades for a Rosie. But if you want $1300 for yours, I can't buy it. I'll wait for it to come down. TV on the rosie would be around 950 or less, and I wont hike up my TV's past my SV.
Thanks for looking, and I appreciate you stopping by!
If you feel my prices are wrong, feel free to shoot me an offer! Also, I have MANY pictures of these knives during the time they've spent in my collection, so if you want more information, or just to see more, please send me a msg, I'll happily scour my photos and send some more along.

Edit: Photo Dump!
