god quakes in His presence: REI tilthat TIL that the 7th time that park ranger Roy. Sullivan was struck by lightning coincided with the 22nd time he fought off a bear with a stick. via ift.tt ginger-ale-official Imagine god wanting you dead this bad i the-smiling-pony https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Sullivan 1. The first documented lightning strike of Sullivan occurred in April 1942. He was hiding from a thunderstorm in a fire lookout tower. The tower was newly built and had no lightning rod at the time; it was hit seven or eight times. Inside the tower, "fire was jumping all over the place". Sullivan ran out and just a few feet away received what he considered to be his worst lightning strike. It burned a half- inch strip all along his right leg, hit his toe, and left a hole in his shoe. 2. He was hit again in July 1969. Unusually, he was hit while in his truck, driving on a mountain road-the metal body of a vehicle normally protects people in cases such as this by acting as a Faraday cage. The lightning first hit nearby trees and was deflected into the open window of the truck. The strike knocked Sullivan unconscious and burned off his eyebrows and eyelashes, and set his hair on fire. The uncontrolled truck kept moving until it stopped near a cliff edge. In July 1970, Sullivan was struck while in his front yard. The lightning hit a nearby 3. power transformer and from there jumped to his left shoulder, searing it. 4. In spring 1972, Sullivan was working inside a ranger station in Shenandoah National Park when another strike occurred. It set his hair on fire; he tried to smother the flames with his jacket. He then rushed to the restroom, but couldn't fit under the water tap and so used a wet towel instead. Although he never was a fearful man, after the fourth strike he began to believe that some force was trying to destroy him and he acquired a fear of death. For months, whenever he was caught in a storm while driving his truck, he would pull over and lie down on the front seat until the storm passed. He also began to believe that he would somehow attract lightning even if he stood in a crowd of people, and carried a can of water with him in case his hair was set on fire. On August 7, 1973, while he was out on 5. patrol in the park, Sullivan saw a storm cloud forming and drove away quickly. But the cloud, he said later, seemed to be following him. When he finally thought he had outrun it, he decided it was safe to leave his truck. Soon after, he was struck by a lightning bolt. Sullivan stated that he actually saw the bolt that hit him. The lightning moved down his left arm and left leg and knocked off his shoe. It then crossed over to his right leg just below the knee. Still conscious, Sullivan crawled to his truck and poured the can of water, which he always kept there, over his head, which was on fire. 6. The next strike, on June 5, 1976, injured his ankle. It was reported that he saw a cloud, thought that it was following him, tried to run away, but was struck anyway. His hair also caught fire. 7. On Saturday morning, June 25, 1977, Sullivan was struck while fishing in a freshwater pool. The lightning hit the top of his head, set his hair on fire, traveled down, and burnt his chest and stomach. Sullivan turned to his car when something unexpected occurred – a bear approached the pond and tried to steal trout from his fishing line. Sullivan had the strength and courage to strike the bear with a tree branch. He claimed that this was the twenty-second time he hit a bear with a stick in his lifetime.

Description CANADA Auto Loan CarProof yes i said seventeen dollars i am selling a volvo 1982, i am unsure of the model. used to be 4wd but transmission is garbage so power only goes to front right wheel. power steering fluid leaks into gas tank and exhaust fumes have started coming through air vents, so dont use the ac or heat and keep the windows down when you drive. rear suspension shot through the trunk about 7 years ago, and car has virtually no wheel alignment. Gas pedal sticks all the time so be careful. Used to be 5 speed manual but now only gears 2 and 5 work. reverse doesnt work, needs to be put into neutral and rolled. brakes only work on the right side, hand brake doesnt stay up you have to jam a screwdriver between it when pulled. body is rusted like crazy, i spray painted it last year though. springs sit through all the seats so you need to put a solid board over the seat before sitting on it. seatbelts dont work in the front passenger and rear left or middle. buckles were stolen. steering wheel sticks to the right side because of lack of powersteering, so avoid right turns. clutch pedal falls off if pressed too hard. car is a deathtrap dont drive it on roads. Energy companies are scared that people will learn how to produce Free Electricity for their homes using this unique device. Important Avoid fraud by meeting all sellers in-person to pay for items. Kijiji does not offer any transaction or payment services. Read More Safety Tips fety ning: update 15/12/2012 please be serious if you are thinking of getting this i have had about 15 people come to take the car, with trailers and whatnot with the intention of scrapping it and none of them took it for the 17$ asking price. i had offers of 125 and i got happy and people came and left without it. you have to see it in person to appreciate how bad it is. no scrapyard will buy it for more than 10 dollars because of the extensive amount of rust and the risk of it spreading. furthermore, the starter is touching the body now and if a piece of the body from the front falls off it can prematurely start and the car can blow up because of all the unburned fuel that floods the engine. the third person that came to buy it gave me the money and started towing it but he hit a bump on the road and the engine caught fire. he returned it promptly after that *updaet i had a friend take a look at the car today. it was originally a v6 but the left middle cylinder is non existent and the right middle one floods with fuel if the this it will probably not past safety but it still might be worth getting it checked out. gears 1 3 4 and reverse dont work because the previous owner was doing bad clutchless shifting and has ground them down to smooth circles. the window on the back door is starting to give in and may break through the rust soon but the plus side of this is that you'll have one more window open for ventilation. both steering rods are messed up. the rear axle has a bend in it so the wheels turn kind of lopsidedly (probably what caused the shocks to go through the trunk) the catalytic converter was stolen today while i was at work and now the car sounds like a monstertruck when you start it. overrevved. because of driving: we took it for a test spin today before i left to work and found 5 persistent problems 1) often times, the car will stall. to fix this, turn off the car, turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and start the car while doing that, rev to 3000 in neutral and pop it into 2nd right after. it should take off 2)sometimes, instead of stalling, the car willl take off like a rocket. in this case, stop the car, turn the steering wheel all the way to the RIGHT, turn the car on, put it into 5th gear with the clutch still in, rev to 2000 and blast the heater then take off, it will be a bit rough but its only for a few seconds. once you start going MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF THE HEAT, and shift back into 2nd 3)too much throttle response(ie 5% press-5k rpms) in this case, turn the car off while holding the clutch and gas pedal and turn it on the same way. wait about a minute while flooring it and then blast heat or ac for about half a minute. when you can smell something burning, turn off the heat/ac and you should be good to go. 4)too little throttle response. usually happens after getting too much throttle response a few times in a row. in this case, start the car normally, make sure heat and ac are off and keep car in neutral while doing periodic revs to 4k for about a minute. when youre ready to go, shift into 5th, go up to 20kmph and then go down to 2nd gear. 5) unresponsive brakes. this will only happen in emergencys so its fair to use this method. shift in one of the non functional gears (1,3,4, R) and floor it while pulsing on the brakes. pull up the handbrake and keep holding it or it will fall back down , steer to go off the road. after you do this, the car will not start for a few minutes and the engine will be sizzling hot don't worry if you smell burning, this is normal.it is the powersteering fluid and brake line fluid and oil mixing in with the gas tank exposed to high revs "discovered on dec 15 6) engine catches fire if the body is suddenly moved in some way. if the engine catches fire, shut the hood start the car and rev the engine. make sure heat and ac are off because the buildup ot co2 and co will put the fire out naturally. once again dont worry it you smell burning its expected 7)wheel axles shift around on sharp turns. by this i mean that the body of the car is in reality shifting left and right depending on the turns. if its stuck to the left and car is flipped over, push the wheel axles in until they look semi aligned to the eye and flip it back over. if the car hasnt turned over yet then make a sharp turn in the same direction that the car is leaning on, then opposite less sharp turns until it feels centre 8) all lights become very bright and start flashing fast. the lights may flash fast (like 15 times per second) and become bright when the radio volume is too low. the front passenger speaker is the only one left, all the other ones were stolen. to fix this problem, turn the car off, turn it on, switch into A.M and go to channel 580. blast the sound for a minute and wait until the lights start dimming down and the flashing slows down. there is some electrical problem because of the stolen speakers, the last thief crossed the lighting wires and speaker wires in the process.

A statement from the Templin Institute regarding our participation at PDXCON 2019. #SaveAlberta: TEMPLIN INSTITUTE October 10th, 2019. Calgary, Alberta On October 3rd, the Templin Institute announced it would be attending Paradox Interactive's annual convention; ParadoxCon, or PDXCO . We feel very privileged and honored to have been invited. However, we cannot in good conscience pass up the opportunity to use this event as a means to draw awareness to an important cause deeply meaningful to almost all the staff of the Institute, and its dozens of fans worldwide. Last year, a patch was released for "Stellaris", a video game developed and published by Paradox Development Studio and Paradox Interactive respectively. It included an update to how Earth was represented within the game and in particular new "planetary features". One such planetary feature, the "Alberta Impact Crater" was described in the following manner. "When 711949 Satis approached Earth and triggered the Great Panic of 72, everyone thought this was it The Big One had finally arrived. Fortunately, it wasn't big enough to cause an extinction event. Unfortunately, it wiped out much of Alberta." As a resident of Calgary, Alberta, I was heartbroken to find out that my home province was doomed to be destroyed by an asteroid, rendering both my transit pass and parking permit almost entirely useless. Alberta is a hopeful and optimistic province which has much to offer both Earth and the wider galaxy. Just this past week my local Dairy Queen caught fire, a stark metaphor for Alberta's burning passion and potential. We are also an efficient province, having reduced our number of seasons from the traditional but superfluous four, down to a more economical two; "I wish I had air conditioning" and "shit, it's cold." Clearly, Alberta deserves to survive. The Templin Institute will be using our time at PDXCon 2019 to urge the Stellaris Development Team, and everyone at Paradox Interactive, to #SaveAlberta. We ask that the "Alberta Impact Crater" planetary feature be removed, or as a matter of compromise, changed to the "Edmonton Impact Crater". Edmonton, after all, is just the worst. If you share our vision for a future with Alberta in it, we ask you to use the hashtag #SaveAlberta to voice your support. Thank You Marc "2 Fast 2 Furious" Gerst Creative Director & Commissioner of the Save Alberta Campaign Templin East Templin Institute TEMPLINJNSTITUTE A statement from the Templin Institute regarding our participation at PDXCON 2019. #SaveAlberta
