2023.06.07 18:31 Secure_Repair9787 [PC][Before 2011] Open world racing game set somewhere in Florida or California
I don’t remember much about the game, cus I played it when I was maybe five, so the game was probably released before 2011. I remember that it had palm trees and was set in a warm climate, probably in the US so I think that the game is set either in California or in Florida. I also think that it had driver in it's name, but I'm not 100% sure. Now what I remember about gameplay is that you would by cars in dealership (especially clear I remember that there were Alfa romeo dealership) and would race on it or explore the map in free ride, you couldn't get out of the car so it was something similar to Forza Horizon maybe. Some other things that I remember are: If you ram venihicles from the back their bumpers would fall off (pretty useless info, but still) and that if you would ram to many cars, the police would chase after you.
Would be thankful for every help

2023.06.07 16:02 FelicitySmoak_ Song Of The Day Discussion : "Leave Me Alone"
| || |"Leave Me Alone" submitted by FelicitySmoak_ to MichaelJackson [link] [comments]
February 13, 1989 - 8th single from Bad
(outside of US) Video
Written by Michael Jackson. Produced by Quincy Jones & Michael Jackson
"Leave Me Alone" was released as the eighth single outside of North America on February 13, 1989. It was made to act as a B-Side and was included as a bonus track on the original CD and cassette issuings of Bad
, but not on the vinyl edition until subsequent reissues
This song was a response to negative rumors about Jackson that frequently appeared in the tabloids post 1985 after the success of Thriller
. Beginning in 1986, the tabloids began to publish rumors about Jackson, one of the first being a story claiming that Jackson slept in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber to slow the aging process. A picture leaked out to the media of him lying down in a hyperbaric chamber at a hospital he visited.
When Michael bought a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles, the tabloids viewed it as evidence of his increasing detachment from reality. It was also reported that he had offered to buy the bones of Joseph Merrick, the "Elephant Man", which Michael stated was "a complete lie." These stories inspired the derogatory nickname "Wacko Jacko", which he acquired the following year, and would come to despise. Another frequent response from the media was about his reported plastic surgery. Jackson's manager said of the media's criticism towards the topic:
"So many terrible things have been written. Okay, so he had his nose fixed, and the cleft — big deal. I got news for you, my nose has broke five times. It's been fixed twice. Who gives a shit? Who cares? Elvis had his nose done. Marilyn Monroe had her nose done, had her breasts done? Everybody's had it done."
This song has been viewed as having a "paranoia theme", a theme that was frequently used in his work
"Leave Me Alone" performed well on various charts. The song, similar to Bad
's previous singles, proved to be a commercial success internationally. "Leave Me Alone"'s most successful territory was Ireland, where the song peaked at #1. The song saw similar chart success on the UK (#2), Netherlands (#5) , Norwegian (#6) and Switzerland (#10) charts, peaking within the top 10. "Leave Me Alone" also peaked within the top 20 in Austria (#15) , France (#17) and Sweden (#19. The single was least successful in Australia, where it peaked at #37
It was generally well received by music critics. In a retrospective assessment, Stephen Thomas Erlewine, a writer for AllMusic
, stated he felt that "Leave Me Alone" was the best track on Bad
, commenting "why are all of his best songs paranoid anthems?" Steve Morse, a writer for The Boston Globe
, described "Leave Me Alone" as a "send-up" of Jackson's feuds with the "paparazzi-filled tabloids." Jon Pareles, of The New York Times
, commented that "Leave Me Alone" had an "unmistakable message".
https://i.redd.it/xyddhib4vh4b1.gif The Atlantic
felt that Jackson showed "obvious expressions of distrust" in the song and that the song was one of multiple songs where Jackson's "persistent loneliness in his music" was "prominent". In 2009, J. Edward Keyes, of Rolling Stone
, described "Leave Me Alone" as sounding like "vintage Michael" and the song works because of its music, "a batch of thick chords for Jackson to vamp over". Keyes noted that the song was a "kind of darker inversion" of "The Way You Make Me Feel", and that "Leave Me Alone" was "worked-up and angry, and Jackson's aggressive scraping of the high notes makes plain his frustration."
After Jackson's death in June 2009, Rolling Stone
listed "Leave Me Alone" as being one of Jackson's most monumental work, and the song's composition was generally praised.
In the music video, Jackson pokes fun at the rumors about him. It was directed by Jim Blashfield and produced by Jim Blashfield, Paul Diener, Michael Jackson, and Frank DiLeo. Blashfield did the animation.It was filmed in January 1988 in Culver City, California and was released on January 2, 1989. The video also appeared in the 1988 film Moonwalker
In essence, the video is an amusement park consisting of stylistically crude images based around Jackson's successful career since 1982's Thriller
. There is an emphasis on the tabloid view of his personal life and public image, referring to the nickname "Wacko Jacko" given to him by the press, and the various headlines associated with him in the 1980s. Lampooning rumours that he tried to purchase Joseph Merrick's bones, Jackson dances with stop motion "Elephant Man" bones in the video
There are images of shrines to actress Elizabeth Taylor, a real life close friend of Jackson. Throughout the video newspaper headlines, published by "National Intruder", with bizarre titles are shown, such as "Michael's Space-Age Diet" and "Michael Proposes to Liz". Another notable scene in the music video was a nose being chased by a surgical scalpel, which was a reference to his plastic surgeries being scrutinized by the media. At the end of the video, it is revealed that a gigantic Jackson himself is the amusement park. He breaks free, tearing the park to pieces. That scene is somewhat reminiscent of Gulliver's Travels, where Gulliver eventually breaks free from the Lilliputians' bonds.
The animating process for the short film took nine months. Blashfield, *Rolling Stone":
"Each and every bit of it is made up of still images that are all stacked on top of one another on a piece of glass"...Look in any one scene and look how many different things there are going on, so each one of those had to have its own shoot. There's a splash that shows up throughout the entire video, and that was so time consuming to cut out that we just had one and it was passed around. Whoever was doing the scene and needed the splash would get to use it for a while. There was a guy, he specialized in that splash, and I think he worked on it for weeks. He also was responsible for hair. So he looked like somebody out of Dickens. He sat on this tall stool kind of hunched over, with these odd glasses that jewelers or somebody wears. Just cutting one 32nd of an inch after another."
The "Leave Me Alone" short film was the recipient of multiple award nominations. The video won a Grammy in 1990 for 'Best Short Form Music Video'. It also won the Cannes Gold Lion Award for 'Best Special Effects'. It won Best Special Effects at the 1989 MTV Video Music Awards and received five nominations for Video of the Year, Viewers' Choice, Breakthrough Video, Best Editing and Best Art Direction. Erlewine described the music video as being "weirdly claustrophobic" and felt that, "not coincidentally, it was the best video from the album."
The song was never performed on any of Jackson's tours.
2023.06.07 15:30 grapedranksoda Comfortable Long Distance Car for $30K
I am returning to the office and now looking for a more long-term vehicle to replace my lease. I've been in an Alfa Romeo Giulia for the past 3-years. While it's not the Quad, I have enjoyed a few of the luxury comforts. I'm looking for some suggestions on what vehicles to consider. It needs to be 2019+, needs to have Apple CarPlay, needs to be ~$30K or under, comfortable for long commutes, needs to be sedan, wagon, or maybe an SUV, and have decently low miles. Some of the nice to haves would be a little sporty, have ventilated seats and adaptive cruise control, good highway MPG. Some of the vehicles I'm considering that fit into this range currently are:

2023.06.07 15:20 Bogey4hoo 'Surving The Win' - Chapter 009B.
At the, "Dere-Licht," Manor, upon the Steps of the Stairs, a Smoked Pipe was placed. In the very Centre of the Meeting Hall (the Room off to the Side from the Bottom of the Stairwell), there was another one, as well. Okay well, throughout the entire building... More like, a GREAT number!
Avem had them placed all throughout that Rebuilt Old Character House, and within that Glorified Mansion, there were Smoked Pipes, In and On Cupboards, Resting Upon Windowsills (with the Drapes Pulled or Left Open), upon Countertops, Hidden Inside of Bookshelves (if not Resting Upon them), of course on the Mantle, Hidden In and Around Corners.. at Every End, Above and Slightly Adjacent to Entrances, and even some, which were included upon the Tabletops...
All of these Smoking Pipes, some with Ashen Remainders in them, some only Constructed Models of, what we imagine, would have been kept for their Interest Sake, were watched by a Careful Set-Up, of Video Surveillance.
The Surveillance, Signaled Hanging Display Monitors, all throughout the House, and also at Avem's Lab in Tokyo. Some of these Monitors, were Hanging from the Ceiling, at the Walls, Facing Down and Into the Rooms. Others, in the Bedrooms, were Level with Sitting Chairs, where one might want to Sit Down and Look At Them.
They were Set Up, Primarily, To Catch Every Angle and Motion of Light or Shadow Upon or Within the Pipes. This Recording of Smoked Rememberances, took place Every Night and Day, from the Rising to the Setting of the Sun, all Throughout the Years. What were the Ashes for?
Granny Smith, he yelled. I'm telling you! She didn't believe him one bit. And you pretend you weren't looking for me!?...
She interrogated him fearsomely. Do you know who I am???
Do you know who I am, "Roared," Perry, back at her, bleakly. He was terrified. Though, he somehow managed to pull off a tone, which mirrored her own, with mock mavery.
Down the hall, there was a beep. Close the door, Swarma commanded, looking out through the interrogation Room's Exit. There was the sound of a, "fwoosh," and a, "click," outside of it. Nobody had been at the Exit, either to push or to pull it's heavy door, closed. There was also no telling, of where that other door might be. She took a swab and daubed Perry with it quickly, before leaving. Wait right here, she cackled, smiling a leerily-wisening old grin, as she left him to total. What's doing this to you? shrieked Ren. June had actually been, in all fact, sobbing and in dread. Her body, becoming purple, as it was, "cast," with some thick layer of unknown chrysoform, which continued to cover her in variegating patches, no matter how much she scratched or peeled. It seemed to keep leaking out from her pores in beads, which coalesced over her skin, recombined, and matted. Heaving, she threw a chunk at the Vending Machine.
She was sitting in Emergency, having just made it through Triage. These are for you, said the Faithful and Believing, Catholic Lady Friend of Wells, who passed her some Pamphlets from the Lecture.
The Professor had stopped everything, to see to it that this kind Lady, would bring Juniper to ER, post-haste. June had brought Ren along as a Study Buddy, for Note-Taking, with a Bribe.
Initially, June went out to the Mountains, to collect Perry's belongings from the Rented Cabin. Upon arriving back in town, both she and Ren decided to Drive out to the College for a Lecture, and to Sight-See, while asking people around the Area if they had Seen or Heard from Perry. Could he be haunting her somewhere? Was there any hope?
Although... the Professor HAD, abruptly interrupted his Lecture to find one of his CPR-trained staff to escort Juniper to the nearby Hospital E.R., in the event that she might not make it there herself, and was, "Truly," facing a Medical Crisis.
The Vending Machine, went lame, and the lights in ER flickered for a moment. I'm getting creeped, said Ren. That's all!
June's problem stemmed back, from when she ate the Oatmeal, which Perry had left behind at the Cabin, while she was inside it, looking at a Newspaper and Doodling.
Some of Avem's Team, had been in the Trails previously, and Driven a Snowmobile through them, tracing Chemicals through the Snow. A or Spoken Split. It had been at just one of her Lab's Testing Zones.
Avem had caught onto Perry, first, when her Voice Exploded from a Crackling Ice Wyrm/ “i”’Sāqa-Šaqqa, in the Cabin's Fireplace.
Avem had been Writing her Vocals into the Chemical Strains of the Ice-Wyrm Constituency Potion, which she concocted in her Lab, and Spread Rumours about, then Codifying it with Automatic Cyber-Sentience Response-Forms, which took initiatives, based on Environmental Factors, and in turn, fed back Information. This Data, was made readable by her Reverse Tonic, which Tabulated it, by Codices, which had Variables in her own Mental Inter-Framing. Cog-Notes, if you will, to her own Cognition. All of, these, Variables, which entered her Consideration, let her Pry, both on Known, and Unknown, Territories. She frequently Drank her Cyber-Tonic from a Vial in her Lab, while going over Her Work.
Perry Wheeled, and Stumbled around the Room, trying to avoid the Icicle Firecrackers, which were Sounding Off whenever he Slid and/or Stepped upon them. He'd apparently been Mega-Dosed, and was now about to Learn what in the World of a Mega-Dosed, Felt Like when Under and In It.
The Wyrms were Sounding Off, in an Acoustics Array, and Perry, Bounded and Rebounded Turning Listless as the Chrysalids Exited him, and Becoming Reinterred into Motion Again, by their Sounds. He was now, well... Not Feeling Like a Perry. That and he was Done, Done, and, "Roared," out. He could No Longer even Find his Own Vocal to Bless How He Felt. Avem came back in, when the Turnabout was Over. She had Observed Perry by a Camera Hidden in the Room, which was Hooked up to her Monitors for Surveillance, as well. Turning on a Ventilation Fan, from outside, which led the Room's Air into a Separate Chamber, she had Two People, Dressed in Dark Robes, walk in, and move Perry back to his Chair, now Limp. They Swept Up, the Remaining Crystalline Deciduates, and Drains Opened, which Took the Little Bit of Liquidine Debris, Out of the Room. Perry, was now Toned.
Swarma, Placed her Hand on his Forehead, at First to Take his Temperature, and then, Mentally Calibrating his Vocal Remembrance within Herself, Uttered a Word to him, While he sat Slumped over the Chair, Catatonic. The Word.
And Therein, may be a Key... His Subconscious Mind, would most certainly Remember. She Had Uttered It, in His Very Own Vocal Tone. Why? It Rendered him Cognizant and Triggered His Mentality, as though His Own... Though, Truly?... Her Own.
Perry was allowed, with the other Time Wraiths as escort, to slowly move around the Manor and familiarize himself with it. He was being taught by them, how to remain very still for long periods of time. Many of the Time Wraiths, were flown out to the Lab down in Tokyo, to use the computers on their Night-Watch Network. The Lab there, housed her prized Hua Niu ("Black Diamond") Apple, Bonsai, kept under specialized lighting, plus numerous other artefacts. It was set up like somewhat of a Museum, with one dimly lit, humming room for computer observancy, which apart from Monitor glare, left much to the realm of the keen observer.
The 34, often formed a Large Pentagram, with two people at each of the five elemental points, two people between each elemental point encompassing, two people between each elemental point intersecting, two people in the very centre, and two people encircling round about. Underneath them, was stone masonwork in black basalt, and a large star outline, traced with gold inlay.
A chandelier hung above them, and the room had an overview of the gated entrance, where birds were often seen in trees, and light could pour in, but at night, the glass of these windows turned sheet-black to buffet them in, high enough up that none might peep.
By no commotion of ceremony, the participants would stand and hear the NicNeven recite her Canon address. The fruits her Science had yielded, sounded in the Hall, and into their collective memory, which disbanded when they did, after she read from her book.
The book, made from gene paper, was their Canon, and this... only a meeting hall. Despite its congressional form, summons were not of sell out to World Teachings. She ranked as their Science-elected, matriarch, of mental-modernity, by the facet of old typings and tyings, to, "new," teachings.
Ruminations from the fruits of her labwork, thereat would be discussed. For if nobody would have them, they most certainly would. Then, and only then, would the lines be codographed (some of the Night-Watch, were also very good hackers). They were secretly culted-over, but by few, and their practicum bore method, not mere devotion. The team were, "Nec-Will'O’Mancer"-affiliate.

Ishi (Hosea). …
- Jehu, Jehu, He’ish I Say too. *
What did you have me on? Some sort of Cerelium Slick? El, in Perry, broke out bawling. Something so licentious that I can’t tell I’m licked. HaHa.
- Anyhow, the Natives know it by another name. Hope you've enjoyed the Lesson!
His stupor adored him with affection, and he had a hammering affectation from it. It caused him to clout his knowing, though only briefly.
Perry came through, yamming… I’m looking back on days of Candy Cloaker Gobstoppers! You mean you literally had me erased… or, where am I?
You Hide no Burger, in Finding Fries, Perald. Daytime is where I have you.
At that, there had been an unconventional or out-of-the-norm convening, where not-an-one of all the attendants had-in, to agree, "We are Necropolitan"... Though, their greed to know, would grow.
Perry led himself back in, looking for his girlfriend, strangely feeling sold out of his nut.
Ironically, it was just at that point that Juniper had made it there. She too was undergoing her thought detexturing, “rinse,” that is, the opposite of any detox, after looking like a Raisin May's, “In.”
This was to be the, “Turnabout (a new Ceremony was declared by Avem’s Host in Relative-Caster Company, and held somewhat like a House Party).”
A $9,000.00 Maitland Smith Dollhouse Bar Cabinet, was off in isolated room of the newly Renovated Manor, with a load of Porcelain Dolls and cameras to watch it.
That room was off limits.
Juniper had had it in her know long afore, in dream. Now to hack Avem… oh, where?
"Osa," circuit of my air... How can, "I," enfold you? Swarma asked, with a vestitude, which only, behooved to surmise her, with surreptitious guiltiness of paridyllic refrain.
She, “The NicNeven,” winked meaningfully, holding an extremely rare pipe up, skyward.
The Time Wraiths all sat, in their, “F”arm-Ended Theatre apart from the once-Ballroom.
Quieting down, it was in their circle that a cast occurred, but in truth they were no relative summoners and Avem’s Mafia had elected them afresh.
That is… that as they were all a, somewhat afraid and eerily sketched out, “Fresh Crop,” yet and though, she would in fact, have them richly afforded, in Good Time.
Avem’s Mafia had sent the former Nec-Will’O’Mancers over to her Manor for the Renovations.
Avem, then, was Crowned, “Accorded,” and the Newly Selected Time Wraiths, could be Trained.
Avem’s Clue In, in her new Role, while in her old Manor seemed to live in it’s espies.
I mean, they must have had her drugged for the whole house to be enchanted, somehow, but the only question is who set it up, and when?
One of her clues, came from a former Nec-Will’O’Mancer silently shadow-encoaching a novice approved in the group, by his far larger boding of path had, in-the-off. She heard the man in her head as well, ruling that Smith had to explore her ties in the Mafia, through rank, a second time, and thus a later, termed-submission as a right of accession, had been officed.
She, once again (the man went over in his mind) being indoctrinated into Mafia rank, though slowly, because her freedom-release methods, were her own merital device, and she needed a longer time to work at them.
Avem, had canned herself intentionally, to stay at a head, but nobody fully knew, how it was done.
Reptilian Mind Control.
How could that be?
Look to the Wind, and we shall ride. ~ "Phantom Riding The Whip," where one is not standing on top of a vehicle, but rather, riding over a different type of, "Whip," as a, "Phantom-Circuit." ~
"Now we admonish," they recited.
"Peace be," stated the NicNeven. She inhaled from the lit pipe.
They all, “doned,” her infuriatingness, with amicability.
Now yes, your highest love, and what’s our gift they forecried, awaiting something.
Not of in an any Dib of forgery… You will undoubtedly see. She canned.
Please don’t mess us or master us mental, Avem, one girl joked, admitting the kind dark lair WAS weird.
That's Missus, Avem relegated ghasting.
Now, I have here the document they stole it from, a man entering the room said. He read aloud,
The remains of a, "chicote"/"cigar butt"/"cigarette butt."
The Nec-Will'O'Mancers, then stated in unison, reading off of the pamphlets they'd previously been handed out, though in a less clear-and-determined tone, or well (it seemed), in a way that hummed and wandered.
"... Far l'fo, Ho glow. How we sway. How does a hard tar, Lie her thieu, In a chi, icy high..."?
When they were finished reciting, the man continued speaking.
By, "sukunai," "少ない," the man continued in Japanese… a word, which means, "few or little," with the root word, "少し ("すこし," "sukoshi").""
Avem exhaled. "The synonym for, which is, "chotto," she said. So yes... in other words? "A little." "ちょっと ("chotto")," may I add, it has a root word in the adverb, "chito..." "... "ちと ("chito")," as in, "slightly," "a little," "a bit," or, "somewhat," where, "ち ("chi," means, “small”)," and, "と ("to," is an adverbial particle). "と ("to")," is also a noun, which is short for, "と金 (tokin)," which will now indicate a promoted, "歩兵 ("fuhyō," or, "pawn”)," that, "moves," like a, "金将 ("kinshō," or, “gold general”).""
Thus, what might have been inferred, perhaps, was that a, "Chicote," in a pipe, was, more or less, alike unto a, "Chi Chót," if it did indeed implicate such.
A, "Chót," of course, meaning something at the, "Bottom," "Lowest Extremity," or, "End," of something, and from there, or at that point, perhaps even then moving forward.
Chicote, apart from being a form of Tobacco, was also, in all truth, a form of, "Whip," known for being a Scourge, in places like the Congo.
The NicNeven, had already caught wise to this, and also how, this form of Tobacco, may have had it's own "Xicohtli (a Nahuatl word, for, "Bumblebee")."
I guess, what needed to be said most (as a nod to the Indigenous People), was that they were good to hold a Peace over the Herb, and also Bow...
Some people may have needed a Peace Blessed over them, knowing the Nature of how all Words exist with ties to Power.
This time, however, she was not merely dreaming with the pipe. She aimed to begin work on something more pivotal. Holding her peace, over them, as though the Time Wraiths had not, in fact, been led by her to keep a different mindset, themselves, she kept them aware, of the part of her mind they were let in by.
A part, they would not be able to share. When inhaling, she did so with a strickening wind, through sympathetic diacords and resonance fields, and from a region locked onto by the Time Wraiths collective awareness. The NicNeven (we presume, remaining silent somewhere at the top of an, "imaginary," but quite irregal, circuit of Heaven, and with her pipe), had her whole lot hidden safely away, and blessed unseen.
She, "wind-let," her chosen remote area, with the pipe, from a distance, as though it were a whip and a scourge, creating yet another (this time stronger), bane.
Her smoke summons, were such that, she hoped to collect and open them, one day, as a portal, to dawn on the World.
As for the pipe vision. This one was well formed. She might have make a centrepiece of it, on table somewhere.
Many of them, rested on glass plates, with glass cases overtop. After their Surveillance Circuit had run, "Ash-Line Data," or, "Pipe Particle Intel," was fed through a Computer on the Ash-Configuracy, Analysis-Observancy Program, of the, 'Night-Watch Circuit', of the, "Time Wraiths"-Network, and for a Number of Reasons...
One, being that the Data, would often be used to reproduce these, "In-Pipe Visions," as, "Viable Product-for-Sale ("Furnishings from the, "Furnace,"" so-to-speak)," and so they needed a Good Record of Analysis kept for Reproduction. "Pipe Reproductions," would be made using more Durable Materials, and Non-Smokable Materials. The Data, would also allow the group to Configure Predictions of Ash-Shift, with a Matrix, once Measurements and Variables were Plugged into an appropriate Coded Program Logarithm, which helped them see, potential Shift Patterns, which may yet arise. The Furnishings, were to be kept as Permanent Pipes... Artefacts, for the Mansion, and Museum, of Swarma.

How this happens, is that it has verses, in tandem occurrence, operating in relevant reflection, on Scripture, and is designed to heal. That is… before having thought of attack or rendering anyone ineffectual.
Wisdom from Jesus, in Scripture, teaches us, that, without Doctrinal relevance, and Revelation, we live on a Dying Planet and cause it.

'On What Could Have Been'.
An expensive matryoshka was brought in for Ralph to look at...
He received the package at his Estate, and had a hard time with his spectacles, adjusting them trying to read the fine print.
The brown paper parcel, with white sticker, opened to a smaller purple gift box, within it. The gift box was about the size of an order of chow mein, and from within the lilac tissue paper inside, was a golden doll. Andrei, Fu, and Evelyn, had driven back and were now seated around Mr. Dizzmith.
Well, here it is, he stated. No word of who it's from, not to mention that I'm not working anymore.
Is it another antique asked Andrei?
Yes, and well, I think it is, replied the Senior, but the thing is, I don't know how to open it. It's a Matryoshka or Russian Nesting Doll, and this one is rather expensive, but the Middle Circumference of the Doll has a Twistable-Dial Lock, and I've never known that to be the case before.
Would you wager all the others inside it are like that, too? asked Evelyn. I know what Matryoshkas are, but you're right. This one DOES seem a little bedeviled.
Perhaps said Ralph.
Do you think there is anything inside, asked Fu.
It looks a little weighty. Is it a bomb? Asked Evelyn.
Nobody would bomb a man like Mr. Dizzmith, said Andrei, but just to be on the safe side, I'll look it up. Andrei pulled out his Smart Phone.
Most bombs don't have Passcodes, said Fu. Look, the Passcode is right here on the box.
It says the code can be adjusted and is made to be matrilineal.
This is most definitely a finely-crafted specimen then, but how does it work? asked Ralph.
Well, it looks like every Doll has two turnable dials at the vertical middle, which run horizontal and around the circumference. These are adjusted from within, when open, and numerically set with dates for a passcode, before the top and bottom on each doll are latched, that is. Each doll is secured, around and over the former one, which has been latched or fastened, and each, in so doing, has its dials consecutively scrambled from the outside, before putting the next doll on it. The dolls are hollow, and increase in scale, to fit, while the locks operate by Birth Years of mothers, or rather, daughters. If one Mother or Grandmother, leaves a Sum, in her Will, to the, 'Matryoshka Fund', it will Increase in Interest, and if they send an Heirloom in With the Money, once the Company is Informed of the Birth of the Final Child, they will send the Doll to the Final Child, Heirloom within It. The Family History, and Records are Sent too, as the Locks are Set with Birth Years, of Mothers, in Chronological Order or First to Last, and this Prevents the Wrong Families from Accessing the Contents.
If No Contents, are Sent by the Ancestral Will-Bearer, Gifts-in-Shop, may also be Included, upon Initial Order Selection.
The Company/Fund, occasionally Touches Base with the Families, but this is Less Common.
Who is it for? asked Evelyn.
I have no idea, but there's some Weird Vial in it!
What could it be of, though?
Well, Matryoshka's are generally not compartments, made use of, for containing things, but this appears to be a Vial of Oil.
"Oyle," is a rare name for the Saviour, "Jesus Christ," remarked Andrei.
"Oyle ("Middle English," Language)": # 2.4. https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/oyle Maybe an Heiress, then? said Ralph. WHO could she have been?!

2023.06.07 13:07 superkilometerfilter What Is The Worst Car Brand?
| || | submitted by superkilometerfilter to u/superkilometerfilter [link] [comments]
Selecting a reliable vehicle can be a tricky journey, but knowing what the worst car brand is can help a lot. There’s only so much you can learn from reading the lists of best models. Sometimes it’s better to filter out those manufacturers that simply aren’t worth your money and energy.
Knowing the reputation of a brand is essential if you want to avoid the title of the “worst drivers by car brand”. None of us want to get featured in those and, trust me, you might still end up there even if you’re the best driver the earth has ever seen.
Today we’ll see which brands fail to deliver the performance we expected and what you should know to select a reliable model.
WHAT IS THE WORST CAR BRAND PRODUCED IN JAPAN?
4 worst releases from Japanese manufacturers It’s really hard to name the worst car brand ever when it comes to the Japanese market
. Their vehicles usually rank high on consumer reports, making it difficult to bash Japanese manufacturers. However, we can still talk about certain brands that have released poorly performing cars.
2019 Infiniti QX30
Infiniti vehicles are abundant on the lists of worst vehicles. For some reason, their newer releases fail to meet our expectations. Their QX30 leaves a lot to be desired – it’s not as good as its cheaper competitors. Plus, it doesn’t offer anything new – you’d probably get the same deal if you went for an older model.
2019 Nissan Sentra
2019 Nissan Sentra is quite overpriced, to say the least. It doesn’t have anything exciting to force us to forget about its poor performance. Driving it is a dreadful experience since the interior is quite cheap both in terms of looks and feel.
2019 Infiniti Q70
2019 Infiniti Q70 isn’t any better. Even though it’s priced and marketed as a luxury vehicle, it fails to deliver the performance and comfort we expect from a higher range. You can get far better models for less money.
2019 Mitsubishi Mirage
2019 Mitsubishi Mirage scores quite poorly on reliability scores. It’s quite affordable and fuel-efficient, yet it won’t last you long enough to appreciate those features. It doesn’t have any improvements from previous models either.
What is the worst brand of car to buy new? – I’d say Infiniti. Their newer models are a waste of money. Japanese manufacturers have a lot to offer and that’s exactly why we judge these vehicles so strictly. The bar is too high to turn a blind eye on such poor releases.
WHAT IS THE WORST CAR BRAND PRODUCED IN GERMAN?
Commonly known for durability, certain German manufacturers have low reliability scores, including Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz, and Porsche. Even though these brands have some outstanding vehicles
, many of their models are failing in terms of safety.
I can’t say that Volkswagen is the worst car brand on earth, yet their vehicles fall short of performance. Some of their models are costly as they reveal quite a few problems. There are some advices on how to increase car mileage and reduce fuel costs. Overall, consumers aren’t that happy with VW.
Surprisingly, Audi doesn’t have high reliability scores. Some of their models are absolutely breathtaking, while others leave a lot to be desired. There are some tips and tricks that you can take into account to increase car mileage. However, such in consistency is the very reason why this brand is often listed among the worst manufacturers.
Another German brand that doesn’t meet the consumers’ expectations is BMW. Their cars are often judged because they aren’t reliable. I’m not saying that all of their models are horrible – I’m just saying that some of their vehicles don’t deliver the quality we want from a German manufacturer.
The users of Mercedes Benz have reported quite a few problems as well. You’ll certainly have a luxury experience with their cars, yet they won’t be as durable as vehicles from Lexus or Subaru.
Porsche is probably the worst car brand for safety. If you buy their car, you’ll likely have to face a lot of problems. The repairs will be pricey, which is why you need to think carefully before you go for their vehicle. German cars also have high depreciation rates which is another reason why they aren’t the best investment.
While we’re talking about German cars, it’s worth noting that the worst Italian car brand is Alfa Romeo. Their vehicles tend to result in high repair costs. However, you can review some tips and tricks that help you to take good care of your car and make your car last longer.
WHAT CAR BRAND DRIVES THE WORST MOTORISTS?
The manufacturers that attract the worst drivers are plenty but the ones that stand out are the Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Range Rover, and VW. We don’t judge anyone personally, yet these cars tend to attract the most annoying drivers.
If you want to experience an uncontrollable rage, you should drive next to an Audi. They host pretentious drivers who get out of their way to show off their vehicles. They might not cause that many accidents but they surely will force you to scold them with your glance.
For some reason, BMW drivers tend to believe they rule the world. They forget all the signs and drive as if the roads were in their possession. Their driving habits will surely drive you nuts.
Mercedes Benz cars are luxurious yet we can’t say the same about their drivers. Just because you own a Mercedes doesn’t mean you should drive like a moron. For some reason, the owners of this brand are among the most obnoxious drivers.
To be fair, not all of the Range Rover drivers are annoying. If you bought an off-road to drive in the city, congratulations, you’re probably one of the worst drivers. Cars have labels for a reason and an off-road doesn’t belong on busy city streets.
Volkswagen drivers are annoying not because they don’t know how to drive, but because they still believe they own a BMW. If you look out the window and wonder “who drives like that”, I’m guessing you’re next to a VW. They always want to be in the first row and do their best to squeeze themselves even on the busiest streets.
HOW TO CHOOSE A RELIABLE CAR?
If you want to steer away from the worst reliable car brand and instead purchase a durable vehicle, you should do your research carefully. The only way to buy a reliable car is to spend hours reading reviews and reports.
You can use the following steps as a guide.
Check out reliability scores
The first thing you should do is to examine reliability scores. J.D Power and Consumer Reports release information about vehicles every year. They rate cars depending on their category and always explore dependability, safety, and performance in their research.
Read consumers’ reviews
But it’s also important to read other people’s reviews. That way, you’ll understand what problems they had and why. Their experience will help you purchase a car that will stay by your side for a long time.
Don’t get fooled by marketing
Worst drivers by car brand purchase vehicles because of amazing marketing campaigns. That’s one of the reasons why they are so annoying on the roads. If you don’t want to be among them, you should always double-check the information you see in those ads.
Once again, reading reviews and consumer reports is the key.
Don’t fall for dealers’ suggestions
Certain salespeople earn their commissions based on the cars they sell. For example, they will get more if they sell BMW instead of Toyota. They might tell you that a certain vehicle has the most innovative speaker system. They might hype up the car just to crank up the value. I’m not saying that all salespeople are lying – I’m just saying that you shouldn’t trust their suggestions blindfolded.
Even though the brands we discussed don’t have the highest reliability scores, it doesn’t mean we should refuse to buy every vehicle they release. All of them have great models that will prove their worth over time.
As you can see, it’s not difficult to label a manufacturer as the worst car brand. What’s difficult is to find a car that is worth your money. You should remember that you can find great cars among Japanese, British, Italian, or German manufacturers – you simply have to have a model-based approach.
Don’t buy the vehicles from top brands – purchase a car that scores high on reliability ratings. Examine resale value, look for answers online, and don’t judge cars by their brands.

2023.06.06 23:23 JigginsYT A Complete Guide to a Realistic Career Mode on F1 23
Hi everyone, I've been playing the F1 games since F1 2018. I love Career Mode and what it can offer the player. Although many enjoy a casual experience, myself and many others get great pleasure from immersing ourselves fully in the realism aspect of Career Mode. So, if you want a high level of realism from your career, continue reading.
MyTeam or Driver Career Mode?
This is up to you, many enjoy the customisation and imagination of MyTeam but let's be real - the chances of a team owner racing for the team in today's world are minuscule. One way to mitigate this is to well, pretend you're the driver and roleplay separately as a team owner. So for example you could form Andretti Autosport and race as Daniel Ricciardo. After five years, "retire" and be replaced by Andrea Kimi Antonelli, who also happens to spend the next five years at Andretti. You are stuck with your MyTeam team so coming up with realistic scenarios for it can help. Having said that, Lewis I believe is in his tenth year for Mercedes so it's not unheard of to spend that long at one team. If you are doing this driver and separate roleplay as team owner crack, make sure to change the following;
- Facility Management (Automated or do it yourself realistically)
- R&D Management (Automated or do it yourself realistically)
If this isn't for you, pick a driver career mode.
Who Am I?
Whatever version you pick, you need to create a driver. You have some options here;
- You, yourself. Though you may want to do F2 beforehand to give yourself some extra background. Consider though, when you peak, how good will you be? As quick as Stroll, Russell or even Verstappen? This will affect your difficulty settings which we'll get to.
- A made-up driver. There's nothing better than some good ol' fiction, think of a name, racing history and nationality, or even ask chatGPT for help.
- A real-life driver who isn't in the game. I highlight that because you do not want to be 4 seasons in to see 2 Jack Doohans or Liam Lawsons on the grid (You and them). So pick someone who would realistically be in Formula 1 this year. For my career I chose Mick Schumacher, with the notion of; what if he didn't lose his seat to Hulkenberg?
And well, play accordingly. A rookie won't be as quick in their 1st season as they will be in their 6th. Whereas let's say you roleplay as Daniel Ricciardo, you'll be up to speed from race one. Consider that for feedback too, a rookie should earn fewer resource points than a veteran.
Who do I replace?
Think of your driver and their characteristics. are they part of an academy such as Red Bull (Start at AlphaTauri)? Are they of a certain nationality? Are they experienced or not? Once you've decided on a team, replace the driver you see fit. I replaced Hulkenberg as Schumacher to entertain the idea that that transfer never happened. Just make it realistic (don't go replacing Verstappen, for example)
- Driver Moves: ON
- Department Event Frequency: Reduced/OFF (up to you, they're not too important)
- Facility Management: Automated
- R&D Management: Automated
- Everything else: Reduced
- Fault Frequency: Standard
- Fault Types: High
Racing The AI
The AI are, well, not perfect. But, you have to deal with them. Here are some tips to race them "more realistically";
- Don't divebomb the huge gap on the inside in T1. Yes I know the space is there but it's just not realistic to gain 8/9 places in one corner.
- If the AI has the inside, do not go around the outside unless your car is alongside or ahead going into the braking zone. It's too easy to hang it around the outside against the AI. Try get switchbacks on them instead.
- When it comes to strategy, follow Mark, to a degree. If there's an important decision, save the game, make the decision and if you drastically gained on the AI then load the previous save and go the opposite way. This tends to happen around safety cars and changes in weather.
- Let your teammate by if they're quicker (roleplaying team orders).
- Crashing too much? Just use flashbacks. It's much more realistic to use them and have a clean race than be the quickest driver but finish 13th because you had to change your wing twice. Having said that, don't flashback every mistake, we're supposed to be human after all.
Oh boy, all I can say is good luck! I've struggled with this for years. My advice, run a simultaneous career mode where you can "test" difficulty before using it. Difficulty changes track to track, season to season and wet to dry. It's a nuisance, but whatever you do, pick difficulties that represent the story you're trying to tell. For example, Schumacher would be in his 3rd season in my Career Mode so right off the bat I want him to be matching Magnussen in qualy and perhaps beating him in the race. However, I'm error-prone so I will make more mistakes than the average driver.
This part isn't necessary but I find that it's both realistic and extremely fun. First, you'll need to track your standings outside of the game. Here is my spreadsheet I use which you can utilise yourself: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zU4Lo7873cBrd3_gCCCSgQF1Odb6AzK_zzCD5nHJ8FM/edit?usp=sharing
Once you've that done consider, what will F1 look like in 2026, 2030 or 2032? For example in my save I have Audi replacing Alfa Romeo in 2026. How do I do this? Simply swap Alfa for Audi in the spreadsheet. If you have PC mods you may be able to do this in-game along with changing the livery etc but sadly I'm on console. Yes in-game it will still be Alfa Romeo but it's exciting to think they will be Audi from 2026 onwards in my standings.
You can do this for drivers too. If a crap F2 driver joins a team, just pretend it's someone else with better potential, here are some drivers I have picked out;
- Zane Maloney
- Victor Martins
- Oliver Bearman
- Gabriel Bortoleto
- Pepe Martí
- Dino Beganovic
- Gabriele Mini
- Andrea Kimi Antonelli
- Ugo Ugochukwu
- Alex Dunne
Or even create "regen" drivers who don't exist in real life, here are mine;
- Alessandro Rossi
- Anton Petrov
- Erik Andersson
- Ismael González
- Juan Alvarez
- Kai Nakamura
- Lucas Hernandez
- Maxime Dupont
- Nico Santoro
- Sebastian Müller
By the time you reach 2032 (the 10th season) very few original F1 drivers should be present. To put it into perspective, Alonso will be 51 in 2032!
So there you have it, I hope you enjoyed reading that and found bits to make your Career Mode more realistic and immersive. If you have any tips of your own feel free to let us know I'd be very interested to read them.
Thanks for reading.

2023.06.06 23:09 AbhiN1289 Origin of Ganesha
Below, I am going to prove that Ganesha is originating from the non-Vedic, i.e. Dravidian beliefs:
Ganesha or Vinayaka is the famous Elephant-headed deity. His role is to remove obstacles and bestow knowledge. According to legend, Parvati made a boy out of clay to guard the entrance to her house while she bathed. Shiva arrived to meet Parvati but the boy tried to stop him. Shiva out of anger used his trident to cut the boy’s head off. To pacify a grieving Parvati, Shiva obtains an elephant head and attached it to the headless copse of the boy and bestowed upon him life. Later, Shiva made Ganesha the leader of the Ganas, thus giving him the title of Ganapati.
Now it is the Ganas of Shiva, of which Ganesha leads, that offers a huge clue to his origins. The Ganas are in fact a host of spirits, and much like them, Ganesha originated as a spirit rather than a typical deity. But we shall get into that later.
The name Ganapati is found in the Rig Veda, but no connections to the elephant headed deity is known. Rather the word means what it literally means: a leader of a troop. For example in Rig Veda 2.23.1:
“gaṇānāṃ tvā gaṇapatiṃ havāmahe kaviṃ kavīnām upamaśravastamam jyeṣṭharājam brahmaṇām brahmaṇas pata ā naḥ śṛṇvann ūtibhiḥ sīda sādanam”
“We invoke the Brahmaṇaspati, chief leader of the (heavenly) bands; a sage of sage; abounding beyond measure in (every kind of) food;best lord of prayer; hearing our invocations, come with your protections, and sit down in the chamber of sacrifice”
Similarly in Rig Veda 10. 112.9:
“ni ṣu sīda gaṇapate gaṇeṣu tvām āhur vipratamaṃ kavīnām na ṛte tvat kriyate kiṃ canāre mahām arkam maghavañ citram arca”
“Lord of the companies (of the Maruts), sit down among the companies (of the worshippers), they call you the most sage of sages; without you nothing is done in the distance; have in honour, Maghavan, our great and various adoration. of wealth, (the wishes of) your friends; make war (for us), you warrior endowed with real strength, give us a share in the undivided riches”
So it seems that we can’t try our luck with the word Ganapti at this early on. However, there is an older term for Ganesha that offers us a great amount of evidence: Vinayaka. Even today, in south India, Ganesha’s older name Vinayaka is more popular, at least in Andhra Pradesh.
If one looks at the older Indian literature, they will notice that Vinayaka appears in the plural, referring to a class of spirits on par with Bhutas and Pretas. The earliest text to mention them is the Manava Grihya Sutra.
“Atha ataH vinAyakAn vyAkhyAsyAmaH shAlakuNTas ca kuSmaNDarAjaputras ca uSmitas ca devayajanas ca iti etair adhigatAnAm imAni bhavanti loSTam mRdgAti”(MGS 2.14.1-4)
“Now hence we will account the Vinayakas. Shalakunta, Kushmandarajaputra, Usmita, and devayajana thus. By these, they will become of the learned. Softly he recites”
The 11th chapter of the Yajnavalkya Smriti, a person under the influence of a Vinayak will have negative symptoms, namely depression and absent mindedness. The examples get specific: a prince will have no kingdom, a girl wont find a husband, women won’t have children, a student will not learn well, a merchant may not obtain profit.
The very first verse of the 11th chapter in fact states:
“Vinayaka has been appointed for the purpose of bringing about obstacles in the performance of sacred rites, and he has been put at the head of all the hosts of Devas (Gana) by Rudra and Brahma as well as (by Visnu)”(Verse 271)
Here we see 4 Vinayaka becoming one. Later on in an enumeration of Vinayakas names, we see Kushmanda and Rajaputra. Admittedly the single name kushmandarajaputra split into two, but nonetheless there is preservation of an older tradition.
The 11th Chapter oes on explaining how to worship the deity should one be under his influence.From this, we see the formation on the familiar motifs surrounding Ganesha. In the Ritual, there is the throwing earth into 4 pots of water, and the chanting of the various names of Vinayaka. However, verse 287 has something interesting:
“ Then having taken all the following things and bowing his head on the ground let him invoke Ambika, the mother of Vinayaka : — Husk and unhusked rice as well as cooked rice mixed with sesa- mum paste, fish, raw and cooked fish, so also raw and cooked flesh. ”( YS Verse 287)
First thing to note is that Vinayaka is the son of Ambika. Ambika is the precursor to Parvati and Durga. This is interesting as at this time period we are seeing the commonly known belief that Ganesha is the son of Parvati. Keep in mind that Ambika herself is a deity of Dravidian origin (PDr amma > Skt. amba> Skt. ambika). The other interesting thing to notice is meet offerings, including that of fish and raw meat. We will get to this later.
Vinayakas spirit connection is also understood from his mention along side the Grahas (not the planets) and Kartikeya.
“Having thus worshipped Vinayaka and the Grahas according to rule^ he obtains the fruit of all actions as well as gets the highest fortune. ” (Verse 293).
“ He who always offers Puja of the Aditya and makes tilaka of Swami Kartikeya and MahE Ganapati, obtains all success. ” (Verse 294).
The Grahas are a disease-causing class of spirits, of which one of them is Skanda. Later on we shall see that the god Kartikeya (Skanda) originated as Grahas and other forms of spirit worship. The association of Vinayaka with the Grahas and Skanda suggests two things.
The first is that Vinayaka is a spirit or supernatural entity. His prominence made him foremost of the spirits, i.e. Ganas.
The Bhagavatam 8.12.2 establishes the spirit like nature of the Ganas, of which Vinayaka leads.
“vṛṣam āruhya giriśaḥ sarva-bhūta-gaṇair vṛtaḥ saha devyā yayau draṣṭuṁ yatrāste madhusūdanaḥ”
“Having mounted the bull, the lord of the mountain (Shiva) surrounded by all the bands of spirits (sarvabhutaganair) went along with Devi to see where Mashusudana is”
The second is that we see the origin, at least in part, of the modern Hindu belief that Skanda and Ganesha are brothers.
The other motif interestingly seen is that Vinayka is offered Modakas (verse 289). Modakas are balls of rice, and modern Hindus will mention how Ganesha is fond of them.The mention of a white cloth being used in the ritual may be the origin for modern iconographic deptions of Ganesha with a white garment.
Non Vedic Origins
Besides the ritual being very earthly, the other interesting thing to note in the 293th Verse of the Yajnavalkya Smriti is the offering of Raw Meat and cooked fish. Vedic rituals do use meat, but those are offered in the fire. Here, no such thing is recorded.
In addition, the use of fish is a staunch prohibition in the Manusmriti
“He who eats the flesh of an animal, is called the ‘eater of its flesh’; he who eats fish is the ‘eater of all kinds of flesh’; hence one shall avoid fish” (5.15)
Admittedly, in the next verse Manu makes an exception to two kinds of fish: Rohita and Pathina.
“The ‘Pāṭhīna’ and the ‘Rohita’ are fit to be eaten when used as offerings to gods or Pitṛs; the ‘Rājīva’, the ‘Siṃhatuṇḍa’ and the ‘Saśalka,’ (one may eaṭ) on all occasions”(5.16).
However the fish are specific and are an occasion for festivities. These seem to not be used for appeasing spirits. Besides there is no specification of the fish to be offered to Vinayaka in the commentary of Vejnanevara. Besides, the mention of raw flesh is a huge indicator to the non Vedic origin of the Vinayaka worship. Verse 288 also mentions offering wine, to which the commentator explains to be of the Gaudi type, made from molasses. This wine, as it is made from molasses, is forbidden for brahmins.
Gaudi is not the same as Soma or Sura, the latter is made from grains and is not necessarily sinful for a Brahmana to drink (Manusmriti 11.90, commentary by Medhatithi and notes by Ganganath Jha).
Returning to the offering of raw meat and fish, scholar Kenneth G. Zysk in his “religious Healing in the Veda” records a nuanced set of rituals pertaining to healing and exorcism associated with the Rig and Atharva Vedas. Despite the nuanced list of rituals, not a single one of them involves meat offerings. Admittedly though, there is an instance where animal hide to make a pouch to store herbs. Beyond that, it seems that Vedic rituals pertaining to dealing with problematic spirits were vegetarian in nature. Thus, the presence of meat in the appeasement of Vinayaka suggests that the Vinayakas as a class of spirit are of non Vedic origin.
Dravidian and Tribal Parallels
Spirit worship is a feature in Dravidian folk customs and in tribal religion. In Kerala there is the festival of Theyyam where the spirit of a goddess enters a man, making him dance frantically. Tulu Nadu has Bhuta Kola, where gods and other spirits enter priestley men who also dance frantically. The Gonds, Santhals, Mundas, and other Central Indian tribes also believe that spirits dwell everywhere and influence the lives of living beings. They can be good or bad.
In Andhra Pradesh, scholar Wilber T. Elmore notes that when a person is sick and no remedies work, a Bhuta Vaidyudu (demon doctor) is called to do an exorcism ritual. In that ritual there are uses of muggus, blood offerings, and pot offerings with rice.
“The demon doctor makes three kinds of the sacred muggu, and after a bewildering number o f small ceremonies he makes an image of dough . He then forms nine small lamps o f dough and pours three kinds of oil into them. The lamps are lighted and placed on an offering o f food in front o f the image . A sheep is sacrificed, its blood caught in a broken pot and mixed with rice . This bloody rice is then sprinkled in the four corners of the room” (Emlore pg 53).
Later it is mentioned that:
“He then places the image of dough, one lamp, and the head of the sheep, in a pot, and the procession starts for the burying ground. Two men carry this pot and two others follow with the pot containing the bloody rice. After reaching the burying ground, they dig a hole and bury both pots with their contents, performing the usual burying ceremonies . After all is over another bloody nail is driven into the earth above the buried pots” (Elmore pg 54).
The ritual mentioned to have occurred in rural villages in Andhra Pradesh is more gruesome than the ones for the Vinayakas mentioned in the Yajnavalkya Smriti. Admittedly, this may be because the Brahamnical influence may have toned the ritual down. In any case we see an earthly folk ritual involving pots, rice, and raw meat
. This is good evidence to suggest that the Vinayakas were a belief originating amongst the non Vedic cultures of India.
Origin of the Elephant Head
The solidification of Vinayaka having an elephant head occurred around the Gupta period; however what factors led to Ganesha having an elephant head in the first place.The interesting thing about the iconography of spirits in Ancient India was that depicting them with animal heads was not unusual. The Bharata Natyasashtra for example advises the costumes of spirits to have various animal heads.
“Bhūtas are known to be of various colours. They are dwarfs with odd faces and may have faces of boars, rams, buffaloes and deer as well” (Natyasashtra 23.98).
In Khmer Art, Yaksas are depicted with heads of various animals including the elephant. And on the Mathuran Frieze #2335, 5 yakshas accompanying Kubera are shown with elephant heads.
So the idea of Vinayaka having any animal head need not be questioned. However, what needs to be figured out is why the elephant is chosen out of all animals. Perhaps Vinayakas, back when there were more than one, may have had heads of other animals but this is speculation.
The most obvious answer to this question is that elephants in India were, and still are, a sign of high status and immense power. A kings wealth is measured by how many elephants he had. Elephants were used for war, construction, and ceremonial purposes. Such an animal that people looked to with awe should no doubt be the prime choice of selection when depicting Vinayaka. In simple terms, the majesty of elephants made the spirit having an elephant head popular.
Other sources of influence come from other figures in Hindu-Buddhist lore. One Vinayaka mentioned in the Manavagrihya sutra was Kusmandarajaputra. The name gets broken into two: Kushmanda and Rajaputra. The Kushmandas (or Kumbhandas) are a class of spirits in Buddhist lore. They are headed by Virudaka, who wears and elephant helmet. Virduaka guards the southern direction; interestingly, later Puranas mention Ganesha as the guardian of the South.
Another name invoked when one is possessed by a Vinayaka is “Virupaksa”. Virupaksha is also the name of the western Diggaja, a group of 8 elephants said to hold up the earth in each of the 8 directions. In Buddhist lore, Virupaksha is not an elephant but said to be lord of the Nagas. While Naga is taken usually to mean snakes, it could also refer to elephants. The relation of the names of the Vinayakas to existing elephantine figures could have partly motivated the success of the elephantine Vinayaka.
Other elephant cults may have popularized the elephant headed Ganesha as well. For example, Pilusara. Pilusara was an elephant deity worshiped in the mountains of Gandhara. Hieun Tsiang writes in the 34th chapter of his Buddhist Records of the Western World
“To the south-west of the town is Mount Pi-lo-sa-lo (Pīlusāra); the mountain spirit takes the form of an elephant, hence the name. In old days, when Tathāgata was alive, the spirit, called Pīlusāra (siang-kien, i.e., elephant-fixed), asked the Lord of the World and 1200 Arhats (to partake of his hospitality). On the mountain crag is a great solid rock; here it was Tathāgata received the offerings of the spirit. Afterwards Aśoka-rāja erected on this same rock a stūpa about 100 feet in height. It is now called the stūpa of the Elephant-strength (Pīlusāra). They say that in this also is about a pint measure of the relics of Tathāgata”
Later, the Indo Greeks adopted Pilusara as their own deity, identifying him with Zeus. In addition, Greek records indicate there is a a record of the tribe Hastikas which may have been an elephant worshiping tribe. The existing elephant cults may have helped propel the formation of Ganesha the way we know him today, as well as popularizing him.

2023.06.06 16:41 Cakalacky Why does the USA carry Asian branded vehicles and not European branded vehicles?
In the US, we carry brands such as Mazda, Kia, Hyundai, Honda and there premium parent counterparts.
We also carry European brands such as Land Rover, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, BMW, Mercedes etc. We do not however carry DS, Peugeot, Skoda, Opel, Seat, Renault, Dacia, Citroen, Aixam, Ligier, etc.
It seems like of all the European vehicles imported to the USA we get more luxury lines/brands, while we don’t often see the more affordable European options.
Assuming it primarily has to do with import pricing from the EU?

A road map to auto industry ownership and partnerships
The auto industry has a very confusing family tree. The past decade has seen partnerships, sales, separations, bankruptcies, and entire divisions killed off, making it difficult to keep up with who owns which car brands.
As automakers have slimmed down to become more profitable and efficient, we’ve seen storied names, such as Mercury, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac, fade into the history books. We’ve also seen others, such as Chrysler, Jaguar, and Volvo, find new corporate parents, outside their original country. And new companies have risen, such as Rivian and Tesla.
To help clear up some of the confusion, we present a road map to who owns which car brands sold in the U.S.
Several brands that have been retired are included in the list, such as Scion, because models are still available on the used-car market. We have omitted small-volume brands, such as Aston Martin and Ferrari, that are without major automaker parent companies.
Most brand names link to brand pages, where you will find links to current and past road tests.
Of course, the list is subject to change. To find out how the major brands compare in reliability, owner satisfaction, and road-test performance, see our brand report cards.

2023.06.06 08:01 EnvironmentalDig9125 Turbo or supercharger
So i have a 2001 Alfa Romeo 156, with 4 cylinder TS 2.0 litre engine.
Im thinking of adding some power but not too much, and making it still fairly economical since its a daily driver. Also noting it is a budget project car so tge budget isnt the highest. Possibly someday use as a track car.
So should i turbocharge it or supercharge it?
And if possible what kits would be good?

2023.06.06 08:00 DerpyEpic_Craft Lootcations (Bunker Alfa)
Once you grasp the basics and reached a decent level (Level 30~50?) , you can look towards grinding Bunker Alfa and PD (Police Department which I will cover later).
This area has 5 Floors, Ground floor and Levels 1~4. All enemies here have increased damage as compared to normal, exploit the Wall Trick or bring some healing/armour.
Standard ecommended gear:
•3~4 Stacks of Carrot stew/Cooked meat/Jerky, •2 Decent melee (Crowbar or higher), •1 Heavy melee, •3 Bows/ +1 Decently ranged gun, •+2 Decent melee/+4~5 Glocks (Depending on if you can perform the "Wall Trick")
a. Ground Floor
Sadly, I can't give much info on this. The update may have changed how to open it from before but the things that remain the same is the lockers on this level never being wiped across resets.
You can use this to stockpile weapons, healing, water, food and armour for future dives into the bunker. (Some use this as a secret storage during AI raids to protect themselves.)
b. Floor 1
This floor consists of a handful of fast biters and a Floater Bloater guarding the shower. Here you can trade Coupons and The Finger for loot such as Motorcycle parts and guns.
c. Floor 2
A good intro to the Bunker. The easiest of the floors.
Craft 3 bows or get your hands on a decently ranged gun to destroy the Tier 1 turret.
Wall trick giants as usual.
The end has a Gunsmith bench for you to use. If your base lacks one, you can use the one here if you are desperate.
d. Floor 3
Once you feel familiar with the Bunker, I personally recommend grinding this floor mainly.
Clear the main path and sneak past zombies whenever you can to open the end gate.
Once done, clear the bathroom at the top left of the map and prepare 3 Grenades. Prepare your nerves for "The Alfa Marathon"
Start at the Secuirity Terminal near the top right of the map and aggravate all zombies on the way. Run towards and past the toilets, through the Acid room, gas chamber, Storage (the area guarded by alarm tripwires), Electric fence and back to the toilet. [Watch the YouTube tutorial which this originates from.]
At the bathroom, hide behind the bent toilet wall and wait. Once all zombies have gathered, slowly move to the edge of the wall without dying and throw the 3 grenades one by one.
e. Floor 4
Don't attempt without using the wall trick. This floor is mainly for obtaining turret parts and is highly recommend you ignore unless you need them.
Most loot is blocked by "True Friend Dog" doors so its not worth doing it till then.
