2020.08.20 17:50 redman1986 Never go to West Virginia

June 25th, 2009. Me and a few friends were on a road trip to South Carolina in my Dad's old Caliber. I remember the exact date because it was the day Michael Jackson died and the news broke that morning as we were heading down. It might be weird to use the death of such an important and public figure for something as banal as a temporal touchstone, but it works.
We were setting out to the Palmetto State not just for the beaches and to escape our lives for a while, no, we were fucking off for the weekend with a purpose in mind. John, an acquaintance of mine, was graduating from the Marines and he had written my friend Lou a sob story about how no one in his family was going to come see him graduate. That had given him the brilliant idea to drive down and get him ourselves. So with some logistical fumbling, we had managed to plan just for that.
It was my friend James, recently home from deployment to Kuwait and still trying to turn his extremely boring experience into a novel. In front of him in the driver's seat was Alan, the youngest of us, happy to have an extended weekend away from his parents and not in school. And next to him was Lou, the idea man behind the trip, sitting in the navigator seat not because he wanted to guide us safely to our destination, but rather because the windows in the backseats didn't work and he wanted to smoke. And then there was me, Redman1986, along for the ride because I had access to a car that could definitely make the trip there and stood a reasonable chance of making it back.
We were hours past our start time when we finally hit the highway, general incompetence and miscommunication getting in the way of us leaving on schedule. I was feeling petulant and wanted to call the whole thing off, but Lou assured me that we could speed and make up the time. That ended up being either wrong or a lie, as it was well into sundown by the time we were heading through West Virginia.
For those of you who have not taken a drive through coal country, let me explain. Highways are not vast lengths of paved flatland in West Virginia. They are rising and rolling concrete hills that wind like angry snakes and are sometimes obscured by drifting clouds of fog for no fucking reason. On our trip, the mosquitoes were so dense we had to stop twice and break out the snow scraper to clear their shattered corpses from the windshield. At one point, we were forced to pull over and write out the yahoo maps directions on a piece of paper due to regular loss of reception. But it was only when one our headlights winked off that we decided to pack it in until morning.
We pulled off at the next exit we found and started hunting for a place to stay. I don't know the name of the town we pulled into, but I remember it very clearly. Have you ever read a book, watched a show, or played a video game that showed the world long after the apocalypse? That was not the result of hours of studying or imagining what the world would look like without the touch of humanity. They just went to West Virginia and described what it was like. We drove past an abandoned gas station, a partially burned down strip mall, and an old school that looked like it could be the set for a Tool music video, all on the same stretch of street.
After about fifteen minutes of driving we gave up on finding a hotel and decided to park in the lot of a Trader Joe's to steal some shuteye. We cracked the windows barely enough for a piece of paper to slide in as a bulwark from the mosquitoes and laid ourselves out as best we could in the cramped cab. I had hoped to get some rest until sunup and we could continue or at least find a parts shop to replace the burned out bulb. Neither of these things happened.
About two hours later by my recollection I felt myself being shaken awake by James. I looked around blearily, swore incoherently, and fumbled around for my glasses while trying to subtly clean the drool off my chin. Thankfully, nobody in the car noticed, they were too busy looking at the fire.
Across the street, a small house tucked against the trees was completely wrapped in flames. Enough that the frames and shape of the house itself were just black shapes under the blinding red and orange. I put on the glasses and put a hand on the window, still in a bit of a post wake up haze. The glass was warm to the touch, the heat of the burning building reaching all the way across the street and the lot.
After a minute of staring dumbly at the dying structure, I said “What the fuck guys?”
Lou said shakily, “There's people man.”
I was about to ask him what he meant when I almost jumped in my seat. There were people, standing around the building as it burned. Maybe half a dozen of them, in the short drive up to the building and in the street. Their backs were to us, all of them staring at the place as it went up. None of them were crying or seemed upset, they were just watching it burn.
After another minute, I said “We should probably go.”
“Go where man?” Lou asked.
“Anywhere but here.” I answered back.
That seemed to be a good idea to the rest of them and Alan fished the keys out of the cupholder and found the ignition. The little car started right up, the one working headlight flicking on.
All the people in front of the house turned as one, like dogs that heard a firework, and stared at our car. I have no idea how they heard it, the fire would be deafening that close and we were a good distance off. There was a beat, a slight pause, and one of the people started fucking shrieking.
I could barely hear it, but it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, like the sound a predatory animal makes to scare things out of the underbrush. They started sprinting towards us, eating up ground at an alarming pace. I saw them coming for about ten seconds before I looked around and wondered aloud, “Why aren't we moving?”
Everyone looked at Alan in the driver's seat who continued to look at the group charging us. I was about to scream at him when Lou reached down and shifted the car into drive. We lurched forward and that seemed to wake Alan up. He grabbed the wheel and angled us to the driveway out of the lot. I tracked the people, watching them turn after us as we started to move. I was able to pick one of them out, a big guy, dark skinned, shirtless and he looked like he was wet, I don't know with what. He'd been the one who screamed at us.
Alan missed the driveway and dipped us into the culvert. The car bounced sharply and I cried out when my teeth tore into my tongue. Alan rocked the car for a moment and managed to get onto the road about twenty feet ahead of the charging mob. We slewed wildly for a second before heading down the road. I looked through the back window and saw the people still running when we hit a turn and I lost them behind some trees.
We drove in a panicked silence for about five minutes, Alan struggling to navigate with one headlight. He pulled us onto a drive that was blocked off with a chain and put it in park. He let out a breath and leaned against the wheel, shuddering as he exhaled. I think he was crying.
James rooted around in the floorboards and handed me a napkin. I looked at him in confusion for a second and he pointed at the corner of his mouth. I had blood leaking from my tongue, the bite worse than I expected. I pressed it to the side of my face and leaned against the window, the pain catching up to me.
Lou was the first to talk, a lit cigarette in his hand. “The fuck was that?”
James answered, “I don't know man. Light of the fire woke me up, don't know what those people were doing there.”
I nodded and slurred, “Anyone see how it started?”
“I saw.” Alan said. “Those people came out of it. Out of the house, they stood there in the street while the fire started. They were just there, staring at it, while it went up.”
Lou took half of his smoke in one long draw, “Well, that's fucking weird. Where the hell are we anyway? I got no signal.”
I took out my phone and started tapping at it, hoping to get signal enough to figure out where we were, when the car rocked on its axle. I rolled against James, pushing him enough his head cracked off the window. Lou swore and Alan let out a strangled scream.
It was that dude, the big one that had been chasing us. He had body checked the car right over the passenger side rear wheel hard enough he slid us. I though we'd been t-boned he hit us so hard.
The giant roared again and slapped an open palm against my window. I saw movement behind us, the rest of the weirdos rushing at us. I shouted at Alan, blood running down my chin. Alan was clutching his head, muttering to himself and rocking back and forth. A second later I heard another impact against the back, one of the other freaks ramming our bumper.
I was trying to get Alan to pull himself together when Lou punched him square across the jaw. Alan went limp, knocked senseless from the hit. Me and James grabbed him and started crudely manhandling him into the back seat. I held Alan close while the giant was smacking the glass, literally inches from my face.
Lou started clambering into the driver's seat, his forgotten cigarette burning a hole in the upholstery. I heard thuds above us, one of the screaming freaks hopping up and down on the roof. Lou found the seat and shifted to reverse. He stomped the gas and everything lurched back, the freaks scattering. The one on the roof tumbled down the hood, her head smacking the windshield hard enough to leave a craze of fractures. Lou angled to avoid the insane bitch and put us back on the road.
James sat up and looked back. “They're still coming.”
“Who gives a fuck?” Lou said angrily.
We drove for the rest of the night, not daring to stop. We didn't see the freaks again, thank god, and we managed to find the highway once the sun was back up. We didn't stop again until we were out of West Virginia.
I checked the car when we were getting gas. The frame was dented inward along one of the hard angles of the exterior. I don't know how that big guy was able to hit us that hard and keep moving. I would have shattered against the car before I damaged it that much.
We made it to John's graduation the next day. We were dead tired, but we made it. The rest of the trip was pretty normal, trip to a bar, strip club, beach, that sort of thing. We never actually talked about what happened that night in West Virginia. We all just silently agreed to not acknowledge it, to not question it.
John managed to finagle a flight home since none of his family came to see him graduate, so we were left to head home as a foursome again. We circled around to Kentucky, instead of risk that place again.

2020.06.07 21:25 Ahhellitshim So My job is hunting/trapping invasive and dangerous animals in Florida. And this is the closest i can get to a some what list of Invasive land animals in the state. It will be ranked by the most common and sighted then to rare and then only sightings.

So animals with sightings,photos and a recorded population In the state of Florida. I am including animals that are dangerous to humans and are nonnatives.
The brown anole Highly common you will see these lizards if you go any where in Florida.
Feral hogs a common animal in the rural southern united states and can be detrimental to a ecosystem.
Peacocks more common in suburban areas. But still common i might try having one of these cooked at thanksgiving.But i know one thing when ever there around they don't allow me to get any dammed sleep. They make the most annoying sounds ever.
Feral domestic cats Cats are one of the worst invasive species on the planet second to humans they kill over Billion of native birds and small animals every year. So spay and neuter your cats and hybrid breeds such as the savanna cat can become a wild invasive cat which are worse then feral domestic cats if allowed to live and breed in the wild and sometimes bigger then native bobcats.
Cane toads highly poisonous relatively common at night don't let kids,cats or dogs near.
Orange Headed Agamas an invasive lizard common to Miami.
Iguanas in south Florida there a common site and can maul you.
rhesus macaques oh boy these fucking annoying little shits. They are common in the central Florida region. can spread the deadly herpes virus.
Vervet monkeys Two troops of well over 120 animals live in Broward County near Dania. nasty little things.
Tegu lizards "Hillsborough and Miami-Dade Counties. An emerging population was recently discovered in Charlotte County after several confirmed reports were received through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Exotic Species Hotline. Researchers believe these populations occurred through escapes or intentional pet releases. Argentine black and white tegus have also been reported from other Florida counties, though these observations are most likely isolated occasions of escaped or released pets and not related to successful breeding populations. Some limited observations of red tegus (Salvator rufescens) and gold tegus (Tupinambis teguixin) have also been recorded in Florida. "
Nile monitor in Lee, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties, although observations have occurred throughout the state including multiple observations in Broward County.
sugar gliders one animal that no one expects. They are opossums and like there name sake says they love sugary foods like sap,nectar and fruits but are omnivores, which means they eat both plants and animals, and their diet typically includes berries, nuts, and even mice. They can be a sight at night time I have seen these guys in Clearwater the Tampa bay area to the most rural of areas in Florida. But they are different from the native flying squirrel in the fact that the flying squirrel is a true squirrel but still can't fly.
Burmese pythons they are common in the south florida everglades area but they don't tell you about the pythons in central and some times north florida.
cuban tree frog was first recorded in Miami in 1952 (Schwartz 1952) but had dispersed northward to central Florida by the mid-1970s (Meshaka 1996). This West Indian species is easily dispersed in plant shipments, especially in the leaf axils of cultivated palm trees (Meshaka 1996). Females may attain a body length of 12.7 cm (5 in), but males are smaller and shorter lived. This species has much larger toepads and a wartier skin than our native treefrog species. The ground color may be tan, gray, brown, or olive green, and there may or may not be a pattern present. Cuban treefrogs are established through much of southern Florida.
Mexican red-bellied squirrel Elliot Key in Biscayne Bay in 1938, Dade County but there has been sightings of this animal on the main land of Florida but might be confused with the native fox squirrel.
Morelet's Crocodile The mexican crocodile don't be confused with the native american croc these things have been reported in the state "its population in Florida has more than doubled, and its distribution has expanded significantly." and not a county or place has been named for this animals exotic range.
King Cobra oh boy recent escapees of these animals are most likely in central Florida. no breeding population has been recorded but its entirely possible that there out there. These animals are extremely deadly and can be a serious threat to people and the ecosystem.
Basilisk Lizard Mainly a feral species in the state.They have been seen in Miami and most likely came as exotic pets. And they have the nick name Jesus lizard for there strange ability to run over water.
Cuban Knight Anole More common in south Florida but can't stand the winters in north Florida and like iguanas they freeze and fall out of trees.
Monk Parakeet they are in the state of Florida most likely south Florida.
Sambar deer on saint Vincent island but there are escaped animals.
Red Deer these guys are a problem but the Florida government call them ELK? which is highly confusing to figure out if there Elk or FUCKING RED DEER. but they are red deer and are in highland county most likely in a ranch being breed to be killed but there are escapes.
Barasinga another type of wetland loving invasive deer these guys are a favorite of exotic game ranches but they are a unknown in how invasive these guys really are.
Axis Deer they are on exotic game ranches but some have escaped into the wild.
Nutria They have been reported over a wide area of the state at various times, but populations seem ephemeral in most areas. Current distribution in Florida is not known, although the animals are consistently reported from the Tampa Bay area, Hillsborough county.
Capybara so these guys are most likely in the area of Jackson vile Although not reported breeding in the wild, sightings are not uncommon, and a breeding population may exist. I have not seen any photo or video reports of these animals in Florida. They escaped from a testing facility and most likely carry deadly blood borne diseases so would not wanna eat them.
Fucking bird speed round.
Budgerigar, Scarlet Ibis, Purple Swamphen, Monk Parakeet , Muscovy duck**,** house sparrow, Spot-breasted oriole, European starling, Red-whiskered bulbul And the Hill myna.
Lets continue on.
Nile croc Several specimens have been recently captured in South Florida, though no signs have been found that the population is reproducing in the wild.
White-nosed coatis have also been found in the U.S. state of Florida, where they are an introduced species. It is unknown precisely when introduction occurred; an early specimen in the Florida Museum of Natural History, labeled an "escaped captive", dates to 1928. There are several later documented cases of coatis escaping captivity, and since the 1970s there have been a number of sightings, and several live and dead specimens of various ages have been found. These reports have occurred over a wide area of southern Florida, and there is probable evidence of breeding, indicating that the population is well established. But there are NO RECENT VIDEOs Or photos of these Florida invasive coatis.
Feral dogs/hybrid canids Feral dogs live in a wild state with no food and shelter intentionally provided by humans and show a continuous and strong avoidance and come from a line of domestic dogs while Hybrid Canines come from mixed lines like the Coydog which are rare to happen but when they do happen they are similar to timber wolves in a sense but are less afraid of humans. There are even more rare cases of wolfdogs getting loose in the state but there wolf dna causes a problem because there fur most of the time is too long and these animals die of heat stroke and the fact both canines are less afraid of humans this can be more of a problem for them in a long run due to they are more likely to go after live stock,pets or small children.
jaguarundi ,it is believed that a feral population exists in Florida and so i listed this as the rarest nonnative, established from an introduced population of escaped pets but There has never been an official sighting of a jaguarundi in Florida, and none has ever been recorded on camera or video. Two color morphs) are known (though intermediate shades are also seen)—gray (blackish to brownish-gray fur with a grizzled look due to bright and dark rings on individual hairs) and red (foxy red to chestnut) to a Blackish brown individuals superficially resemble the tayra (Eira barbara), but the latter can be told apart by the clear, yellowish patch on the throat. The red morph is seen more often in dry, open areas. Melanistic individuals have been reported, but the coat is not completely black; the head and the throat are clearly paler than the rest of the body the Jaguarundi can be mistaken for feral cats and they are quite stealthy animals so you can never now if there really there. They were allegedly introduced in the region by a writer from Chiefland who at some point imported the animals from their native habitat and released them near his hometown and in other locations across the state. W. T. Neill noted that jaguarundis occurred throughout peninsular Florida in the 1950s, but the numbers had plummeted by the late 1970s. Jaguarundis were also reported in the coastal area of Alabama in the 1980s, which may be evidence of the Florida population migrating northward. If you find them take a picture and video record them and then call your states fish and wild life program.
The next list of animals are animals from Exotic game ranches or reported as feral livestock in the state. And what animals are allowed on exotic game ranches in the state. These animals have had reported sightings over the years.
Black buck oh boy these guys are the most likely to escape and have escaped from exotic game ranches they can run up to speeds to 90kms per hour with strides up to 6m long and can leap up to 2m in height and could easily get over a fence.
Wild cattle when Spanish settlers came they brought there live stock with them such as cattle and those animals got out and became a wild breed called the Florida cracker cattle but recent past more breeds of hot weather cattle have been brought into the state such as the zebu which is well adapted to the Florida climate and so wild cattle in Florida are mostly well adapted and can be highly dangerous.
water buffalo I have hunted a small feral herd of 2 males with 3 females and i was only able to get 1 male and 1 female.But there are allot of farms in Florida that have water buffalo.
Père David Deer exotic game ranches in florida love having these guys with giant antlers and there love of wetlands they do well in the Florida climate.
Nilgai a well known invasive in Texas and they do really well. But its also known that these guys are used by exotic game ranches hence how they got into the wild of Texas so its entirely possible for these guys to get into the wild here.
Sika Deer: The sika deer also known as the spotted deer or the Japanese deer a much loved by exotic game ranches.
Waterbuck: The waterbuck is a large antelope found widely in sub-Saharan Africa and used by you guessed it exotic game ranches.
and the laws of Florida work like this for exotic game ranches. And what species are most likely for use in exotic game ranches in the near future and a bit of whats wrong with these laws.
  1. Equids (e.g., zebras, asses) and large non-cusorial bovids (e.g., wild cattle, African buffalo, bison). For one or two animals, a paddock enclosing 1,250 square feet, 6 feet high. For each additional animal, increase paddock by 25 percent of the original footage.
  2. Cervids (deer family) and cursorial bovids (antelope)
a) Large (e.g., elk, sambar, red deer, sable antelope, eland, wildebeest, and deer and antelope of similar size). For one or two animals, a paddock enclosing 1,250 square feet, 8 feet high. For each additional animal, increase paddock by 25 percent of the original footage.
b) Medium (e.g., white-tailed, fallow, axis, sika, pronghorn, deer and antelope of similar size). For one or two animals, a paddock enclosing 800 square feet, 8 feet high. For each additional animal, increase paddock by 25 percent of the original footage.
c) Small (e.g., roe, dikdik, muntjac, brocket, pudu, Chinese water deer, musk deer, deer and antelope of similar size). For one or two animals, a paddock enclosing 450 square feet, 5 feet high. For each additional animal, increase paddock, by 25 percent of the original footage.
  1. Camelids (e.g., vicuna and guanaco)
a) For one or two animals, a paddock enclosing 800 square feet, 6 feet high. For each additional animal, increase paddock by 25 percent of the original footage.
  1. Tapirs

So basically in Florida any animals that are not covered by the dangerous animals act are allowed to be at exotic game ranches. what counts as a dangerous animal in Florida is a bit strange i quote this from the FLA. ADMIN. CODE
"is unlawful for a person to possess any Class I Wildlife unless the animal was in possession prior to August 1, 1980. Class I Wildlife includes, but is not limited to the following: chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans, baboons, leopards, jaguars, tigers, lions, bears, elephants, crocodiles, etc. Persons may possess Class II Wildlife if he or she obtains a permit from the Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. Class II Wildlife includes, but is not limited to the following: howler and guereza monkeys, macaques, cougars, bobcats, cheetahs, ocelots, servals, coyotes, wolves, hyenas, alligators, etc. All other wildlife in personal possession not defined as Class I or II Wildlife must obtain a no-cost permit. In addition, FL has promulgated regulations governing possession of Class II and III animals (caging requirements, etc.). In 2010, Florida passed state regulations prohibiting importation, sale, use and release of non-native species. The regulations include a ban on capturing, keeping, possessing, transporting or exhibiting venomous reptiles or reptiles of concern (listed python species, Green Anaconda, Nile monitor and other reptiles designated by the commission as a conditional or prohibited species.) Persons who hold pre-July 1, 2010, permits for these species may legally possess the species for the remainder of the reptile’s life. Traveling wildlife exhibitors who are licensed or registered under the United States Animal Welfare Act and licensed zoos are exempted." 
Most people would ask what is wrong with this allot is wrong with this sort of way for what counts and does not count many species including Carinvorians and can cause serious harm to an ecosystem if not regulated by these laws.
Take this for example over in Texas were Exotic animal ownership is common place cover many species and is extremely loose but cover any well known carnivorous mammals and hybrid mammals Florida law does not cover that for exotic game ranches.
And why would i be stressing this is fact is because of a recent drop in the rate that people go to these places might cause them to get a bit desperate and go for something drastic like getting a new animal onto there ranches to attract business.Or try to bend the rules a bit so they get business. so hear is a possible list of what they could have on there ranches to attract business. This also lists possible loop holes which they can use to get "better" animals.
African golden cats,civets, ratite's, hybrid animals,More exotic species of bovine such as indian gaur and gayal More larger dangerous species of swine such as Giant forest hog, Babyrousa and Bushpig the selected hybridization of Large domestic pigs with feral pigs.
The possible selective breeding of bovines to get bigger,more well adapted and more dangerous feral cattle for exotic game ranch trophy hunting which they all ready do but with selectively breeding with these breeds Ankole-Watusi,Zebu,Texas long horn,Nguni cattle, Belgian Blue, Sanga cattle,Angus cattle, Heck cattle just to name a few possible animals.
The Marsupials that are allowed are only Kangaroo's but they don't like having them because they are known to jump fences but don't let this fool you if there desperate enough they will have these animals.
sheep relatives ,Pyrenean chamois, red serow,Nilgiri tahr and lot more of these animals from this genus.
Why do i stress the fact about exotic game ranches is because they are most of the time unknowing of the animals that they are allowing to breed and live on there property and not well secured fences lead to disaster and a new invasive species.
And most people don't even know exotic game ranches exist they are a horrible business that leads to an ecosystem being over run in due time like we have seen in Texas.

So yeah that's the fuckin list and shit.
Animals that are not listed will be soon listed unless there horses,zebras or donkeys which were once native to the state and so are native to the Americas even though the European breeds of horses were only brought over I count them as a re introduced animal.
Coyotes are reintroduced animals too. but still does not mean that there not a problem for people. Coyotes and cockroaches will likely be the earth's sole survivors if we ever have a nuclear holocaust. The resilient coyote, has adapted and flourished very well in both rural and urban settings. Coyote populations can be found just about everywhere, from the remote wilderness to the heart of New York City - despite heavy lethal control over the past century, and in spite of the recent popularity of coyote hunting.
I will not count dogs as dogs were all ready there when Europeans got to the Americas but
I will count feral dogs and hybrid canines because they do fill in the wolf/coyote niche they cause more harm then good to humans and the ecosystems which they are in.
I also love to answer your questions so just ask a question in the comments I am to be sure to respond.

2020.04.09 06:00 assessment_bot [ Fatal(1) ] [ 03/06/2020 ] American Aviation AA 1, Boynton Beach/ FL

On March 6, 2020, about 1316 eastern standard time, an American Aviation AA-1, N5757L, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Boynton Beach, Florida. The pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.
Security cameras at Palm Beach Count Airport (LNA), West Palm Beach, Florida captured the accident airplane at the door of the hangar where it was being worked on at 1242. At 1246 the airplane was no longer in frame. The airplane departed runway 28 at LNA about 1256.
Preliminary radar track data provided by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and correlated to the accident airplane, indicated that after departing LNA the airplane first appeared on radar at 1313:52, when it was about 1.43 nm southeast of the airport at an altitude of 1,350 feet msl. At that time the airplane was heading east-southeast in a climbing right turn, with a ground speed of about 84 knots. The track data continued in a right turn, arcing and climbing to about 1,700 feet msl, and then turned momentarily to the west-northwest, before turning left to the southwest, and then west-southwest. The airplane then began to descend, with ground speed also decreasing until the track was lost at 1315:41, at an altitude of 550 feet msl, with a ground speed of about 43 knots, in close proximity to the accident site.
According to a witness, who observed the airplane moments prior to the accident, the airplane's wings appeared to "waggle" up and down, and the airplane suddenly appeared to go inverted, so the belly of the airplane appeared to point skyward. The nose of the airplane then pointed at the ground, and the airplane began to corkscrew rapidly while losing altitude and disappeared behind a tree line. Another witness, who resided near the accident site, and had the back windows of her home open, she then heard what she thought sounded like a boat having engine trouble then heard a loud thump.
Examination of the accident site revealed that the airplane had struck a 40-inch diameter, 18 foot high palm tree, severing it about 5 feet above ground level. The airplane came to rest against a fence in a 22 nose-down attitude, on a 33 magnetic heading, about 30 feet from the back wall of a residence. A debris path composed mostly of debris from the palm tree, light objects from the interior of the airplane, and Plexiglas from the windshield and sliding cockpit canopy, continued from the main wreckage on a magnetic heading of 44 for about 71 feet, until it met the western edge of the Lake Ida Canal which paralleled the backyards of the residences surrounding the accident site.
Examination of the wreckage revealed no evidence of any preimpact fire or explosion. The left wing was found to be partially separated from the fuselage. The left wing appeared largely intact, with the wing flaps and ailerons remaining attached. The wing was curled forward with the leading edge showing evidence of impact damage with roughly five separate wrinkles in the skin of the leading edge, The pitot tube was found separated from its mounting position.
The right wing was found partially separated from the fuselage mounting points and remained attached to the fuselage by the flap and aileron control tubes. The right wing was broken nearly in half at mid span with both the aileron and wing flap assemblies damaged and bent rearward with the arc of the bend matching the circumference of the broken off palm tree which displayed paint transfer and debris from the wing, which was were imbedded in the lower portion of the tree. Evidence of tree material was also present inside the structure of the right wing.
Flight control continuity was established from the rudder and elevator control surfaces, to the cockpit, and from the left aileron and wing flap, and right aileron and wing flap to the cockpit.
Examination of the cockpit revealed that the throttle control was out about 2 inches, bent to the left, and broken off. The mixture control was full forward, and the engine primer was in and locked. The fuel selector handle was bent to the left, towards the left tank position. The tachometer indicated 2,031.7 total hours of operation. No emergency locator transmitter was installed, nor was an automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast unit.
Examination of the fuel system revealed that the left wing fuel tank displayed significant damage and was ruptured at the inboard end near the fuselage, and the right wing fuel tank was ruptured at the inboard end and middle section. There was no evidence of residual fuel inside either of the fuel tanks, there was no odor of fuel, and no observed fuel blight (browning of vegetation).
Disassembly of the fuel selector valve revealed that it was devoid of fuel, and it was not in the detent, for either the left or right fuel tanks. Disassembly of the engine driven fuel pump also revealed that it was devoid of fuel, and disassembly of the carburetor reveled that a trace amount (about 2 drops) of fuel were present inside the carburetor float bowl.
Examination of the propeller revealed that one blade of the two-bladed propeller was bent back about 20, and the other blade was relatively straight with a slight wave in it about mid-span. Neither propeller blade displayed leading edge gouging, chordwise scratching, or S-bending.
Examination of the engine revealed that there was oil in the sump, galleries, and rocker boxes, the left magneto would produce spark at all four towers, and the right magneto though impact damaged, when disassembled and examined internally, displayed no evidence of any preimpact failure or malfunction. Thumb compression and suction was present on all four cylinders, and continuity was confirmed from the crankshaft to the accessory gears and to the valvetrain.
According to the airplane's maintenance records its most recent annual inspection was completed on January 6, 2016. At the time of the inspection, the airplane had accrued about 1,961.9 total hours of operation. According to FAA aircraft registration records, the airplane's registration had expired on September 30, 2019, and the airplane was deregistered by the FAA on January 6, 2019.
The pilot held a private pilot certificate with ratings for airplane single-engine land, and instrument airplane, and a mechanic certificate with ratings for airframe and powerplant. According to an airman certificate and rating application dated August 4, 2018, the pilot had accrued about 350 total hours of flight experience, about 249 hours of which, were in single engine airplanes.

/Hockey NHL Power Rankings Week Dec 16, 2019 - Dec 22, 2019

Thank You

Thank you to all of the volunteers doing the power rankings. Each ranker has their own system and have their own reasonings and analyis. It truly is a lot of work.

Visualization

The visualization contains historical data, so you can see how your team has done over time. Hopefully, we can run this for many years in hopes that we can see the rise and fall of teams by /hockey opinion.
It automatically updates so feel free to bookmark. You can find it here

Process

How does this work? Throughout the course of the week rankers are able to access an app that will allow them to rank teams. At the end of the period we calculate the average ranking for every team and collate all of the analysis provided by rankers.
The app then generates a post that is first proofread and then posted to /hockey!

Rankings (29/31 Rankers Reporting)

Ranking (avg) Team Delta Overall Record Record This Week Comments
1 (1.36) Washington Capitals - 26-6-5 2-1-0 We can't beat the Jackets and I don't know why. We can beat the Devils and the Bolts though, the latter of which marked the season sweep against the sleeping giants. Literally the only gripe I have with the team is with Panik, who objectively sucks. The fans seem to have turned on Jensen as well but they're wrong. Backstrom will sign his new 3-5 year deal soon, then Ovi will sign his new 2-4 year deal over the summer, then Holtby will go be pretty good for Edmonton or something. This is the way. In the meantime we've got a Christmas Eve Eve date against a Boston team that's struggling so hard recently that it's almost a trap game. Go Caps.
2 (2.97) St. Louis Blues 3 23-8-6 3-0-0 Best in the West, 5 game win streak, great game against our biggest challenger in the division. All this without our elite #1 RW and our cup-winning goalie = cool.
3 (4.81) New York Islanders - 23-8-3 1-1-1 They finally beat the Bruins, and they did it on national TV, in Boston, playing Trotz brand hockey. Aside from that, they let in an albatross of goals. Trotz doesn't let this kind of play linger so they should rebound next week. Clutterbuck had a scary injury and is out for a while, but expected to return this year. Ladd is back on the roster, but most important, HO SANGS BACK IN BPORT BABY.
4 (5.47) Colorado Avalanche -2 22-11-3 1-3-0 It is amazing how one player can become so essential to a team in a short time. Without Makar two major issues are becoming obvious. 1 our Powerplay is reliant on skill way too much and doesn't really have a system, also no one else can QB a PP that well. 2nd our giveaways and poor passing have dramatically increased. I don't know how one guy can change that much but passes have gotten bad. The other major issue is the Top line while all back doesn't seem to be clicking. Mackinnon looked more dangerous when Rantanen and Landeskog were not playing. On the positive side, Zadorov is earning his way to a long extension and when he gets assigned to a player on the other team he plays his role well. With the Christmas break upon us let's hope the team can get rejuvenated and bring more energy this week. Just another hard week in the Central we have Vegas right before the holiday then a back to back with the Wild and Stars. One more positive note Makar should be back by next weekend.
5 (6.08) Carolina Hurricanes 1 22-12-2 2-1-0 After 6 consecutive great starts from James Reimer it seems that a bit of goalie controversy has entered the chat. Honestly didn’t think that Reimer would be this good to start the season.
6 (6.86) Pittsburgh Penguins 3 21-11-4 2-1-0 7th overall in the league but still in a wildcard spot. The metrodome is nuts this year.
7 (7) Boston Bruins -3 21-7-9 0-0-3 Well, at least the Bruins are on a 4-game point-streak. Winning only 1 game in their last 7 is continuing the slump and the bears stay in hibernation. At least this week, they were competitive in each game but the Bruins haven't played a full 60-minute game in about a month. 0-5 record in shootout this season so far is a joke. With the Caps on Monday, I expect another L there and here's hoping the short Christmas break gives them some rest. At least Pasta is the Atlantic captain and Cassidy will likely be named to the All Star Game as well.
8 (9.17) Philadelphia Flyers 4 20-11-5 3-0-0
9 (9.81) Winnipeg Jets -1 21-13-2 1-2-0 This week of low points and the inability to stop exactly 1 player on every team, comes with 3 upsides: Wheeler becomes the franchise points leader, Hellebuyck ties Pavelec for franchise shutouts leader, and the rest of the central decided to shit the bed this week too (except the Blues). Look, let's just pretend the 1st two games didn't happen; Aho? Kane? Never heard of 'em. That Minnesota game though? That was a good time.
10 (10.53) Arizona Coyotes - 20-13-5 2-1-0 An up and down week for the coyotes who will maintain the pacific division lead. All eyes are on new acquisition Taylor Hall who has a goal and two assists through three games in the Sedona Red. Clayton Keller continues to roll with 12 points in his last ten games. Another injury will test the will of the team as Kuemper goes down week to week, leaving Raanta to lead the way in goal. The team may finally be finding its offense, but will need to push to keep its stingy defensive game together with key injuries to Hjalmarrson and Demers alongside the Vezina candidate goalie.
11 (10.58) Dallas Stars -4 20-14-4 1-3-0 No idea whats going on with the team. Maybe losing Monty is catching up to us? 2 Terrible loses in a week is pretty demoralizing.
12 (13.33) Vegas Golden Knights 1 20-13-6 2-0-1 Malcolm Subban is the best Subban.
13 (14.03) Toronto Maple Leafs 4 19-14-4 3-0-0 Our backup won a game!!!! Oh, it was against an AHL team. It still counts though. Big win against Buffalo, surpassing them in the standings even after the refs were blind with a bad Okposo hit on Dermott which lead to a BUF goal. High scoring game in New York, with Marner and Nylander each scoring a pair. On Saturday night, it was 0-0 for what felt like too long, until the Leafs broke it open, and things got dirty with some dangerous plays, probably with no repercussions. The Leafs are now 10-4 with new head coach Sheldon Keefe, and Morgan Rielly is finally looking healthy and back up to speed. He hasn't missed any games this season, but he was missing a lot of practice and did admit something wasn't right.
14 (14.19) Edmonton Oilers -3 20-15-4 2-2-0 This has been the week of met expectations. Beat the Stars and Habs, teams we've historically had good records against. Lost to the Blues and Penguins, teams we usually lose against. A 2-2-0 would be considered a bad week, but after the weeks leading up to this one, this has been a welcome. Mike Smith hasn't looked great, Ethan Bear is not having a good time and neither is Draisaitl. McDavid is still spectacular. The best positive for the last month or so is how good some players in our bottom 6 have been, especially our 4th line that is doing a respectable job creating offensive pressure. Two very important games coming up against the Canucks and the Flames.
15 (15.33) Florida Panthers 4 18-12-5 3-0-0 What happened when you place together; a dog detective, a one-legged DJ, and a guy that loves the number 52? A Noël miracle!!
16 (15.69) Calgary Flames -2 19-14-5 1-1-1 The Flames stopped a 3 game losing skid with a dominant win over Dallas. The powerplay is starting to click and the team continues to work hard... most of the time.
17 (17.06) Nashville Predators 5 17-12-6 3-0-1 My reaction when the Preds take 7/8 points on a 4 game road trip. Seriously though, if you told me last week the Preds would not only beat the Rangers in a close game, but then turn around and put up 8 goals against the Isles? And then beat the Bruins? I probably would have laughed. For a team that's looked as flat as it has the past month and a half, this week was a welcome breath of fresh air for Preds fans. Hopefully (there's that word again) with whatever sparked this week and the return of Arvy, the Preds can keep momentum going into the New Year. There's 3 games this week, including a back-to-back home and home with the Pens, and then it's off to the Winter Classic. Please don't Perd it up.
18 (17.14) Tampa Bay Lightning -3 17-13-4 1-1-1 This team just is not fun to watch. Vasy looks like some hot ass, dude REALLY needs a reset. Maybe change pads, or maybe the all star break will fix it. There's been some forwards who have looked like shit too. Tyjo hasn't played great. Joseph literally got sent down. Kuch got benched for the 3rd period and OT for a game. Only things I've been excited by are the massive strides we've seen Sergachev and Cirelli take. Sergachev has looked really good, definitely huge improvements from last year. Cirelli plays hard every single shift and I really love seeing him with Stamkos. I really do think that Cooper has to go.
19 (18.33) Vancouver Canucks -1 18-15-4 2-1-0 A week out from fire-Green fever, the Canucks post their first positive stretch in what seems like ages. And the memes overflow in response. Pettersson is producing again, and Virtanen continues to excel in a limited offensive role. Hughes' powerplay wizardy has cooled slightly, but will return soon. Markstrom is incredible. Since the Pacific is insanely tight, the Canucks remain right there in the playoff bubble. And despite this team performing roughly how everyone claimed to expect they would, the bipolar fanbase continues to erupt with each win and loss. It's great fun - at least half the time. Happy Holidays!
20 (19.19) Montreal Canadiens 3 17-13-6 2-1-0 The Habs paid warm holiday greetings to their fans throughout western Canada, treating our foreign legion to thrilling victories in Vancouver and Calgary. You can have your arenas back now. Edmonton wasn't quite as accommodating, but otherwise it was a great show too. Julien had Suzuki out there against McDavid-- that's something to discuss with family over turkey stuffing. The Canadiens continue to play much better on the road than at the Bell Centre, which is fine for now because the Habs are 3 games into a 7 game road trip. I hope Suzuki, Fleury, and Poehling get cash for xmas because if a rookie dinner gets called in South Beach they're dead.
21 (19.69) Buffalo Sabres -5 17-13-7 1-2-0 We played alright with Jack in the lineup and got stomped without him. It's been said before but the skill gap between Jack and the next best player on the squad is enormous. Dahlin will close that gap eventually, but its very obvious that we lack scoring punch outside the top line. Skinner and Johansson are cold right now on the second line, Mittelstadt got demoted to the Amerks, Sheary has been invisible, etc. At least Ullmark and Olofsson are playing out of their minds.
22 (21.42) Minnesota Wild -2 17-15-5 1-2-0 Wish we would have save some goals from the Arizona game for the Winnipeg game. What an embarrassment.
23 (22.19) New York Rangers -2 17-14-4 1-2-0 Not the best of weeks, but no team is perfect. We opened with a brutal game against the Preds in which the officiating was some of the worst I've seen in years. I think of that game as a throwaway and we can just move past it now (mostly because just thinking about it makes me angry). Next up our game against the Leafs. We seemed to at least be able to hang with Toronto up until the third period. While we never had the lead, we at least were able to respond to what the opposition had, until the final period came around. The final game of the week was against the Ducks, in which we finally won a game this week. Our offense did it's thing and Lemieux gave us a show. Hopefully Chytil's injury isn't serious because he's been fantastic lately. Let's see what next week holds. LGR
24 (22.33) Columbus Blue Jackets 4 16-14-6 4-0-0 Since December 7th, the Jackets have played 8 games. They have lost Bemstom (Ribs), Milanio (UBI), Anderson (Shoulder), Murray (paper skin and glass bones), Peeke (puck to mouth in one game and broken finger in the next), Savard (illness), Atkinson (LBI), and Bjorkstrand (Rips/Oblique strain). The Jackets are also 6-0-2 over the same span. Obviously we have figured out the recipe to success -- sacrificing one player per game to the hockey gods. Luckily, the positions the Jackets have the most depth in are the ones getting hit -- defense and RW. Every single one of our opening night RWs are injured now.
25 (25.08) San Jose Sharks -1 16-20-2 0-3-0 Another bad week, I'm starting to accept that our window might have actually closed this year. The Sharks look different under Boughner, but it hasn't done anything for us so far. We still look lethargic, and the team is gonna need some major changes if we want to make the playoffs. The Sharks have a talented roster, and I still have hope that the team will get better, but at this point it's pretty unlikely that it'll be in time to make the playoffs.
26 (25.53) Anaheim Ducks -1 16-18-3 1-3-0 We got multiple power play goals in a game for the first time this season. This is not a drill. Looking ahead: Lukas Dostal should be the starting netminder for the Czech team. Zegras should be a key contributor for the US team and it looks like BOGroulx should make the Canadian team. PS: Groulx’s father might be on some nhl head coach watchlists by the end of the season.
27 (25.81) Chicago Blackhawks 2 15-16-6 2-1-0 Keith returned on Wed after missing 3 weeks (groin injury). He remains the our best dman. The Hawks lost Saad (right ankle) for a couple weeks. He's been one of our best and most reliable forwards. Seabrook was held out due to nagging issues. After starting with 1G, 1A in the first 11 games, Toews has 7G, 18A in the last 26. Toews, Kane, Dach, and Kubalik led the Hawks to their first win when trailing after 2, over Colorado (Sat). Kane has 20G, 9 more than Saad (2nd most on the team); and 46P, 19 more than Toews. Kubalik has 10G as a rookie. Marc Crawford will return from a month suspension on Jan 2. My power ranking of Lehner panda tweets: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
28 (26.97) Ottawa Senators -2 15-18-4 1-1-2 The Sens finally managed to get Hogberg his first NHL win this week. Unfortunately they also pissed away 2 other great performances he had, and managed to get OTL points in the process which seriously hampers our tanking efforts. There's basically no way we'll be able to contest the Red Wings for 31st (which they firmly have on lock), and the Devils are nosediving hard in the standings as well...at this rate we'll be relying on the Sharks' pick as our primary ticket for the lottery! Hopefully the team starts losing again after the winter break.
29 (27.31) Los Angeles Kings -2 15-19-4 1-1-1 The Kings impressive road trip continued this week with the Kings grabbing 8/12 pts. The overtime win against the Bruins was one of the most memorable games this year.
30 (29.72) New Jersey Devils - 11-19-5 1-2-0 Well, honestly, nothing super crazy.. We beat the ducks, which was possible. We lost to the Caps, debatably the best team in the league right now. We lost to the Jackets cause we can't beat the metro unless its the Flyers or Rags. The Good: Gilles Senn did great in his first start. Let in 3 goals, but every one came from between the circles on more or less defensive breakdowns. Having a young, hungry rookie as a backup may be the jolt this team needs in net. Hischer and Palms have continued scoring without Hall, which is a good sign. The Bad: This column is starting to feel like beating a dead horse. We're bad, underperforming, and sometimes just genuinely not fun to watch. Advance analytics show we dont create or convert on high danger opportunities. We also shoot below league average, do we shoot more? The Ugly: Compared to the past few weeks, nothing too ugly. We need to watch our usage of Blackwood though, he's starting to look tired.
31 (31) Detroit Red Wings - 9-26-3 0-3-0 Im here to teach you guys about the pecking order. It goes the Detroit Red Wings, the dirt, the worms inside of the dirt, Popo's stool, Kami, then Popo. Any Questions?

2019.12.07 06:21 derkimster On This Date In California Weather History (December 4)

2017: Strong sundowner and Santa Ana winds persisted across Southern California for two weeks. Northerly wind gusts between 65 and 85 mph were reported at a few locations sometime during the two weeks. On this day, the Thomas fire sparked to life just north of Santa Paula. Over the next few weeks it burned over southwest Ventura and southeast Santa Barbara Counties and became California’s largest wildfire, burning 281,893 acres. It destroyed at least 1,063 structures and damaged 280 others. One firefighter and one civilian died. 2014: On the morning of December 4th, the FAA issued a limited ground stop for McCarran International Airport due to dense fog. A total of 15 flights were cancelled that day and 116 departures were delayed. 2014: A Pacific storm brought moderate to heavy rain on 12/3 and on this day across the Southern California region. Two-day rainfall totals of one to 2" were recorded west of the mountains, while the southern slopes of the San Bernardino Mountains got up to 5" of rain (isolated amount of 14.5" at Yucaipa Ridge). Flooding resulted, with mud, debris and water closing several roadways and stranding vehicles. On this day mud with debris ten feet high piled up on Soboba Road north of San Jacinto. A swift water rescue was needed.
2013: An intrusion of Arctic air that arrived from Canada brought a string of several cold mornings in these locations.
Record low temperatures were reached in Madera and Merced on the morning of this date due to this intrusion.

2000: During the period from December 2nd-6th, a dense late night and early morning fog regime established itself in the Central and Southern San Joaquin Valley. Visibilities during the hours between midnight and 0900 PST were often below 1/4-mile in dense fogwith California Highway Patrol "pacing" traffic on major highways.
1997: Pre-frontal winds downed 10 power poles in the Bear Valley area of the Tehachapi Mountains. Gusty wind to 40 mph on the Southern San Joaquin Valley floor downed numerous trees and powerlines in and around Bakersfield.
1992: A big storm that started on this day and ended on 12/7 brought rainfall from 0.5 inch at the coast to up to 6" of precipitation in the mountains. 1.65" fell in Coronado, 1.60" in Vista, 1.42" in Fallbrook, 1.32" in Escondido, and 1.15" in San Diego. Flooding in Tijuana killed four and left hundreds homeless. Local flooding, mud slides, standing water, and road closures resulted. 6"-24" of snow fell in the mountains.

Thunderstorm winds gusted to 55 mph at Newport Beach. Gale force winds battered the coast with speeds exceeding 40 mph, causing tree damage and power outages. Flooding in downtown LA prompted some evacuations. Flooding, including water into some houses, was reported in Fallbrook. More flooding was reported all across San Diego County, including downtown San Diego, where numerous motorists were trapped in their vehicles. A mudslide closed Valley Center Road and Lake Wohlford Road. In Westminster winds gusted up to 60 mph and damaged 40 mobile homes, nine of which were ripped out of the ground, and left 24 people homeless. Boats were shaken loose from their moorings. Lightning struck a radio tower in Newport Beach, knocking the station off the air, and knocked out power to the area. Winds knocked down power lines in Newport Beach.
1983: Deepening low pressure dropped 2-4 feet of snow in the Sierra, with reports of 17.5" at Lodgepole and 10" at Grant Grove. Gusts over 60 mph caused blowing snow and near zero visibility.

2019.11.11 20:34 derkimster On This Date In California Weather History (November 9)

2012: A cold winter storm produced scattered showers and thunderstorms. One of these storms produced a tornado that measured EF-0 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale about 7 miles south-southeast of Tulare (or 4 miles northeast of Tipton) that lasted for about 4 minutes. It was reported by a dairy farmer, and some minor damage was sustained to a few small buildings at the dairy. Here are the storm survey results of the tornado. The location was between Tulare and Tipton near the Intersection of avenue 176 and road 128. Tornado lasted for about 3 minutes and did not interact with any private property or buildings. Some branches and corn husks were strewn about. Several eyewitness accounts corroborated a video provided by local media. The tornado path included several utility poles that were not damaged.
The path of the tornado was around 400 yards long, and wind speeds were estimated at around 65 mph. This was the 86th confirmed tornado in the central California Interior since 1950...and the 13th to strike Tulare county. The last Tornado in Tulare county was on January 27th 2008...when an ef0 touched down 1 mile east of Goshen junction. The most recent tornado in the central California interior occurred on march 17th 2012 when An ef0 tornado touched down 4 miles southwest of tranquility in Fresno County.
2008: A Pacific storm arrived in Central California on November 8th. Showers and thunderstorms developed over the San Joaquin Valley floor during the evening, with one thunderstorm dropping 0.37" of rain in only 10 minutes near Melvin (Fresno Co.). Minor street flooding was reported in metro Fresno from this storm, possibly exacerbated by debris-clogged storm drains. Minor street flooding was also reported in the Clovis area. This storm system also brought strong winds to the Kern County Mountains and deserts with peak wind gusts of 50-60 mph, especially in the favored passes and canyon areas. 2008: Last night into this morning, a strong thunderstorm produced 0.36" of rainfall in only 10 minutes. Minor street flooding was reported by a trained NWS spotter in the Clovis area. Clogged storm drains may have contributed to the street flooding. No damage was reported.
2003: Significant snowfall occurred in the Southern Sierra Nevada from Yosemite to the Tulare County Line then lessor amounts through the Tulare County Mountains. Snow amounts estimated:19" at Upper Burnt Corral, Blackcap Basin 14", Agnew Pass 13", GraveyardMeadow and Gin Flat 11", and 10" at Bishop Pass in the South Sierra; and 12" at Big Meadows and 6" and Tunnel Guard Station inthe Tulare County Mountains. A spotter reported 2" of rain in a locally heavy rain shower from convective activity just west of the Fresno County townof Mendota from 1830 to 1930 Hours on the evening of the 9th. Subsequent ponding and flow of water into town brought damage to one home as well as substantial sheet flow through town during the evening from 1900 to 2100 hours. Typical for the mountain areas of the Southern Sierra Nevada on this day were 2.63" at Wishon Dam to 1.43" at Kaiser Pass.
2002: 5.68" of precipitation fell in Idyllwild, the greatest daily amount on record for November. Incredibly, no rain at all fell just on the other side of the mountain in Palm Springs.
2002: After a relatively benign active weather month in October, November also started slow for Interior Central California. However, the first major trough off from the East Pacific combined with tropical moisture from Hurricane Huko a southern latitudes brought copious amounts of rain (snow levels at or above 9,000 feet Mean Sea Level) and gusty wind at higher elevations from the 7th until early on the 9th. What was unusual for this area was the change from the normal summefall dry conditions to the wet season in such dramatic fashion with little in the way of transition. During the period in the Southern Sierra Nevada 46" of new snow fell at Volcanic Knob and Upper Burnt Corral; and in the Tulare County Mountains 80" fell at Chagoopa Plateau. Numerous foothill locations received 5-10" of rain within the 3-day period in the foothills of the Southern Sierra Nevada. Johnsondale, in Tulare County received 16.38" of rain in the 3-day period. On the San Joaquin Valley floor Merced received 1.80" in 3 days, Fresno1.76"; Hanford 1.44"; and, Bakersfield 1.29." Rainfall amounts for the 8th were over 1" at several Valley locations thereby establishing new 24-hour rainfall records, e.g. Fresno's old record for the 8th was 0.23" ... new record 0.98". There were 23 pole fires caused by wind and arcing reported by Southern California Edison utility and ultimately affected 102,000 residents in the Central and Southern S.J. Valley. 2002: The first storm of the winter season moved onshore bringing heavy rain and windy conditions for Interior Central California on the7th. Numerous locations reported gusty wind with damage reported to powerlines due to arcing and felled trees. In the Kern Mountains poles were downed in the Weldon and Onyx area east of Lake Isabella and around Mt.Mesa and Southlake around 3:30AM on the 8th. In the Kern Desert, Indian Wells Canyon and Laural Mountain reported wind in excess of 50 MPH at both locations. This significant frontal passage brought gusty wind with speeds of 40 to 44 MPH across the Central San Joaquin Valley and into the neighboring foothills of the Southern Sierra Nevada. In conjunction with this multiple day precipitation event from the 7th through the 9th, gusty wind continued to buffet the Kern County Mountains and Deserts. Wind was often reported with 40+MPH gusts at several different automated reporting sites. There were spikes of 74 and 91 MPH at Indian Wells Canyon at 1613 PST and 1713 PST in the early afternoon of the 9th during the event.In the Mojave area winds again were generally around 40+MPH on the 8th into the 9th with a few gusts to 60 Knots at the Inyokern Airport during the afternoon of the 9th. 2002: Tehachapi in Kern County reported 4.67" of rain and Lodgepole in Tulare County received 11.55" of rain in the 3-day period from the 7th to the 9th along with the 16.38" at Johnsondale. Despite the very dry antecedent conditions, this amount of rainfall lead to flooding problems...especially in and around the Tulare County Mountains. Snow levels were relatively high, at 9000 feet MSL. Park Dispatch reported washouts on Parker Pass Road and the Road below Durwood Resort in Southeast Tulare County, as well as the road that leads from Johnsondale southward to Kernville in Kern County. Flooding also occurred along Highway 178 near Kelso in Kern County (Glennville received 6" of rain); rock/mudslides occurred on Highway 168 and Highway 180 in the S.Sierra Nevada foothills; and, with numerous rock/mudslides, and road erosion problems, the Tulare County foothill roadways of the General's Highway and Mineral King were closed. Sequoia National Park had to evacuate folks from a flooded trailer park near Ash Mountain on the morning of the 9th. Due to erosion problems with the McNally Fire in Southeast Tulare and Northeast Kern Counties, debris was spread across many mountain roads in the area as well as contributing to a fish kill in the Kern River. Additional flooding and mudslide problems were noted along Highway 178 in Kern County. Peak flow into Lake Isabella from the Kern River was 26,500CFS on Friday night, the 8th. The lake storage increased from 82,000 acre-feet to 109,000 acre-feet and increased in elevation 5 feet in a 2-day period from the 8th to 9th.
1982: Seven tornadoes touched down in the LA Basin(2 F0, 3 F1 and 2 F2) during a six-hour period. Three of the tornadoes began as waterspouts off Pt. Mugu, Malibu, and Long Beach. The Long Beach waterspout-turned-tornado moved ten miles inland. Two of the tornadoes were in Garden Grove and Mission Viejo. Property damage occurred, especially with the Long Beach waterspout/tornado.
1956: Santa Cruz had a high temperature of 92° F.
1956: This day is the latest recorded date in the year to reach at least 100° F in Santa Ana.
1955: Pismo Beach reached 91° F, establishing an all-time high for November.
1945: Las Vegas, NV, recorded a low temperature of 26° F, setting a daily record.
1937: 2.68" of rain fell in San Diego, the fifth wettest calendar day on record and the wettest November day on record.
1917: It was 88° F in Victorville, the highest temperature on record for November. This also occurred on 11.6.1980.
1915: 29" of snow fell at Tahoe City (west shore Lake Tahoe), with 24" of snow being reported at Portola.
1914: In Bagdad rain finally fell on this day ending an incredible dry spell at 767 days that started on 10.3.1912 (Southern Pacific RR employees kept this debated record).
1879: 2.75" of rain fell on this day and on 11.10 in San Diego, the wettest 24-hour amount on record for November.

Race Information

Swim – 1:28:24
T1 – 0:14:24
Bike – 6:00:31
T2 – 0:13:50
Run – 4:56:47
For whatever reason, Strava got hung up on a 156-heart rate. That was not my average HR for these activities and I have no idea why it’s so stuck on that. Garmin Connect shows it right so at least there’s that. Maybe Strava will get its stuff together(?) eventually…

Goals

Goal Description Completed?
A 10.5-hours Super-No
B Sub 12 No
C Less than twice my HIM time from 2015 (7:13) Yes
D Become Ironman not Florida Man Yes!

Background

In January 2019 I ran the Celebration Half marathon in central Florida in 1:30:50. I PR’d by exactly 3-seconds. I was certain I’d hit sub 90-minutes, but driving rain and temperatures in the mid-40’s (not to mention losing my only Gu somewhere along the way) set me back and I was barely able to PR at all. I was actually fairly certain I’d never be warm again. Thankfully I was wrong – I was able to warm up after a few hours and did not indeed die of Florida-hypothermia.
I did, however, do something stupid after that; I took only one day off and immediately resumed raining at 60+ miles per week. This resulted in my left shin beginning to ache in an all-too-familiar manner. I’ve had two stress-reactions in my left shin that sidelined me for 13-weeks in 2012 and 10-weeks in 2015. Not wanting to relive that I decided to shut down for 10-weeks voluntarily before it got to that point. I began cycling 500-miles a month in March. I had completed a half Ironman in 2015 with a time of 7-something hours. It was in Haines City and I wanted to die. I did not die and indeed was forced to finish instead. I always wanted to do an Ironman and I figured I could cross-train the bike and swim for 10-weeks while I rested my shin. Knowing the run is my best sport I cycled as much as I could and swam when I could stand it because I straight hate swimming. I signed up for the Florida full and got to work building my base on the bike and in the pool.

Training

I more or less followed this plan. I basically shot for 10-hours/week during my base-building phase and once I hit the actual training plan I ended up backing off a little bit which was nice for some recovery. I began running again in late May/early June.
I followed the plan as best I could. Some weeks were better than others, and the sport that suffered most was, unsurprisingly, the swim. I had problems doing a long swim on Sunday after doing a long ride on Saturday and a long run on Sunday…so I either did my long swim on Friday or not at all. Some weeks I’d swim Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday or Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday. Other weeks it’d just be Tuesday/Thursday. My swimming form is not great and I am truly OK with that. I was able to pull off 1:55min/100-yards most weeks in the pool and I figured I’d shoot for 2:00min/100-yards on race day.
On the bike I made some big gains. I’ve never been a super-fast cyclist, but I could hold 18-mph for a long time (usually). I did an International tri where I managed to pull off 20.8-mph on the ride and finished 4th in my age group. I did miss a few long training rides, including an 85-miler for a funeral, and a 70-miler for general life stuff. But other than that I hit multiple rides of 70+ miles and peaked at 114-miles before my 3-week taper. I did multiple bricks, and did do a 1.4-mile run immediately following the 114-mile ride. Many yelps were made. Not particularly manly noises, but after about 0.25-miles I felt pretty settled in to an 8:30-pace.
Running was lack-luster if I’m being totally honest. I felt OK in terms of general run fitness, but didn’t feel especially strong here. I ran a 7:15-pace 10km for the international tri mentioned above which was good enough for second in my age group in that sport. I had a few 16-mile runs, and a 20-miler the day after doing 114-miles on the bike. I did the 20-miler at a sub-9 pace where I followed the Pete Fitz plan for general long runs; by 5-miles in be marathon pace minus 20%, by 5-miles remaining be marathon pace minus 10%. I had a shockingly good run there and, for the first time since January, felt pretty good running.

Pre-race

So Florida does some weird stuff. I live near Tampa two days prior to the race it was 90° F with no signs of being any cooler. The water temperature Gulf near Panama City Beach was a whopping 79° F and the race looked like it wouldn’t be wetsuit-legal. North Panama City Beach, however, there was a cold front brewing. Thursday night the temperature plummeted into the high 30’s. Hooray for wetsuits! I had a few trials in mine and I swam much faster than without. Literally cut 3-minutes off my 1500-yard time in a pool that was 84° with air temperatures to match. I was expecting good things in the water. I was also moderately concerned that I’d be too cold on the bike. Friday water temperature was 69° F. That’s Florida-freezing for you northerners.
Friday prior to checking in my bike and gear bags I made the decision to include my cycling shorts/jersey in the bike bag and my running shorts/singlet in my run bag. I wanted to have the option to change out of my wet tri-suit if need be. In addition, the bike shorts provide more padding and I didn’t know how well I’d handle 112-miles in a wet tri-suit.
I put a spare CO2 cannister and tube in my bike special needs bag (you don’t get those back) because I could bring one tube on my bike in the little gear box underneath the seat. I figured if I had a second flat before mile 58 I’d be able to get back on track with a second tube. Thankfully I didn’t have any flats, although I did see at least half a dozen people who did flat. I did not use my special needs run bag, although in hindsight I should’ve thrown my head lamp in it and picked it up for the second loop of the run.
The morning of the race I woke up around 4:55 and gathered all of my gear that I’d prepared the night before, inhaled two pop-tarts (my usual pre-race meal), and headed down to transition. I readied my bike with my Gu’s and stuck my wateGatorade bottles in place. I had purchased a large bag of Swedish fish as extra race fuel. And then I promptly forgot them without a second thought. Oops. I got body-marked and slid myself into my wetsuit. I had my Garmin 945 charged and ready to go. Prior to race-day I’d read on Triathlon about how to set up your watch for a race and took that advice – I locked my keys for the swim, so I didn’t muck anything up. I’d never used my watch in triathlon mode, so I was a little concerned. I’d tested it, but never with a race.
On my way to the beach there was a backup of biblical proportions on the boardwalk when people realized they had to get their morning clothes bag to a different area than where they were headed. This resulted in a bunch of people trying to “swim” upstream against even more people desperately trying to get to the beach. Thankfully I had my wife with me so I handed her my stuff and soldiered on. Gonna pause and shamelessly plug my wife here – if not for her I would have been late to/stressed as hell for everything at this race. My wife was the key ingredient in getting me trained and to the start line.
I was still on the boardwalk when the pros started (along with almost everyone else who’d taken the stupid way). There was some seriously poor crowd management going on but thankfully it was limited to that one spot. Once on the beach I had a few minutes to seed myself for the rolling start. I figured I’d be around 1:11-1:20 on the swim since I could wear my wetsuit and I was in salt water, so I put myself near the back of that section. (Spoiler – I was wrong). Just before entering the water I noticed a few people who’d taped/bandaided their neck to prevent chafing from the wetsuit. I thought to myself “gee I’m glad my wetsuit doesn’t chafe!

Race

Swim
Narrator - His wetsuit totally chafes when he must look up to sight.
That was a fun little surprise. Found it out about a quarter of the way through the swim. At the start I felt a little overwhelmed. I was pushing too hard and I knew it. I’d also stuck my watch beneath my wetsuit as instructed by the lovely users here and I couldn’t see how fast/far I was going/had gone. I was OK with that, but felt like I was pushing waaaaay too hard and dialed it back a little. Around 10-minutes into the swim my watch beeped and buzzed. I don’t remember that ever happening before and suddenly I fear that I’ve messed up my first ever Ironman by screwing up the swim recording on my watch. Remember, if it’s not on Strava it didn’t happen. Roughly 10-minutes later the same thing. Great, I think, now I’m “on the bike” and out of T1. After completing one-lap I staggered onto the beach and peeled back my wetsuit to get a glimpse – turns out my watch “laps” OWS at 10-minutes. So, activity intact! I plunged back in for lap 2, winded and pretty battered.
Just after the start of the second lap I saw a flash of white beneath me. I’d seen a few baitfish hanging out near the buoys and figured it was one of those. A few strokes later I saw a football-sized jellyfish swimming directly towards my face from beneath me. I briefly became Michael Phelps. I don’t know how fast I was moving but picture Scooby and Shaggy running on water. New fear deeply ingrained in my head I wished to be out of the water more than anything. I also noticed that I was sucking in quite a bit of saltwater. Around the second turn left I straight-up grabbed a fish. I was maneuvering myself around a buoy and thought I’d grabbed a foot as I wasn’t the only person there. Nope. It was a small fish who wasn’t terribly pleased about me grabbing him. We both freaked out and swam away. Him much quicker than I. Not too-long after I inadvertently palmed another jellyfish. I made some unmanly noises that may or may not have been heard by those around me and again briefly walked upon the surface of the water. I was incredibly lucky to not have been stung in hindsight and did hear about at least one person who got stung. There was a fairly strong current closer to shore that was pushing west-to-east. Once you could see the bottom you could really start to feel it. I ended up doing a tiny bit of breast-stroke to alleviate the chafing, to recovery breathe, and just because I was tired after nearly 4000-yards. I drank a ton of saltwater, which explains why I was usually a little nauseous after my longer pool swims, and was, unsurprisingly, a little nauseous getting out of the water. I made my way towards the mat, unlocked my watch buttons, and blipped myself into T1. Time = 1:28:24.
T1
They had a huge freshwater shower thingy set up that was just wonderful. I got peeled out of my wetsuit as quickly as I and the lucky volunteers could manage. I jogged into the changing area and grabbed my swim-to-bike bag. Inside there were a number of people changing into bike shorts/jerseys, so I decided to do the same. I really wanted to do the entire tri in a tri-suit, but I was so very cold and I’m so very much from Florida. I stripped quickly and threw on socks, shoes, and arm-sleeves. I slammed a Gu with some water and ran out to get my bike. Mercifully the wateGu quelled the nausea almost instantly.
Once I had my bike I clipped my watch onto the cradle and jogged to the mounting point. My legs actually felt pretty good. In previous triathlons I’d had some calf-cramping in T1, but didn’t notice any today aside from once during the swim when I thought the bottom was closer than it was (thanks crystal-clear water) and sank in about 10-feet of water trying to touch bottom. At any rate, I hit the mounting line, clipped in and sped off. Time = 14:24.
Bike
It was indeed a little chilly and I was immediately happy for my outfit change along with the arm sleeves. The temperature was about 50° which is pretty chilly for Florida Man. I sped off and tried to hold steady at 17-18-mph into the wind, 20-22+ with the wind at my back. I did OK with this until about mile 12 where I saw the first big overpass. I decided to burn a match and attack the climb. I then decided to attack the downhill. This has always worked well for me as I tend to spin around 90 rpm and burn out the lactic acid from the climb on the downhill. I have to say that this method really served me well during the IM bike split. I attacked with almost reckless abandon on basically every hill and my legs felt pretty great for it…
Right up until mile 59 where we turned north into what I’m going to assume was an actual cyclone. I had this portion of the ride mentally marked out as trouble. It’s an out and back that heads almost due north and then due south with tons of rolling hills. I played leap-frog with a bunch of other people throughout most of the ride, but here, we all suffered. The wind was never-ending. I’d barely break 20-mph on the downhills. I’m pretty sure I saw the three fates from Hercules cutting my string with a big pair of scissors. It was unpleasant. It was, mercifully, only about 9-miles, and when we turned south things got better in a hurry.
I had been stopping at nearly every aid station to refill Gatorade/Gu/watepee, and I started to realize that I was going to be close to hitting my goal of a sub-6-hour ride. Having the wind at my back I was notching 20-22-mph easily with a nice and low heartrate (130-140). I continued my up/downhill attacks and notched people off left and right. I noticed, however, that I’d get passed during stops at aid stations, and decided around mile 75 that I was going to hit the next aid station hard and not stop again. Mile 81 rolled around with the next aid station and I made it my last. I loaded up with Gatorade, filled my water bottle, and emptied my (full) bladder one last time. I pushed it from there to the end on what I had.
Thankfully, that turned out to be enough. Once back closer to the beach the wind decided to do its own thing. East? Into the wind. West? Into the wind. North? Into the wind. South? You guessed it; into the wind. Sometimes though, east was with the wind. I was able to keep notching about 20-mph give or take for the last few miles and ended up coming into T2 just a few seconds over 6-hours. I pulled up to the dismount line a little fast and ended up pulling off a sweet dismount that probably looked like I totally intended to do it. (I didn’t). This part was neat – they had bike rackers for us so that we didn’t have to do it ourselves. I told mine to keep the bike. Time = 6:00:31
T2
Once again into the changing room! I grabbed my run gear bag and knew for damn sure that I wasn’t coming anywhere near 10.5-hours. That wasn’t physically possible. 11-hours was out the window. But I’d hoped that I could still run a 4-hour marathon and maybe sneak in under 12-hours. I changed quickly and griped and moaned a little with the other unfortunate souls who’d also decided to torture themselves on November 2, 2019. I applied Squirrels Nut Butter to some not G-rated places, threw on my running shorts, compression socks (remember the shin injury), and my shoes. I also donned one of my favorite singlets; a green NYC Marathon singlet I purchased last year after running the NYC marathon. Remember this.
I secured the remaining Gu’s in my bib belt, clipped it on and headed outside. I got quickly slathered in sunscreen by a brave race volunteer who (smartly) had rubber gloves on. A quick potty stop and I ran out of T2 full of energy I didn’t know I had! Time = 13:50
The run
Ladies and gentlemen I consider myself a little bit of a veteran marathon runner. I have run them in 95° temperatures, and I have run them down in the 30’s. I have run them with most weather conditions aside from snow. I’d like to do that some day, but it certainly won’t happen in Florida. Going into the Florida Ironman I have completed nine marathons and two 50 km races (not included in the 9). I felt pretty good heading into the start of this marathon. It was low 70’s, although climbing, and the crowd was pretty energizing around transition. I saw my wife and got a little boost and hopped out onto the course. My legs hadn’t cramped which was a new surprise; typically after a long ride I have a quarter-mile or so of unhappy calf muscles and I was pleased to see that I’d evaded that fate this time.
A far different fate awaited me. As I pushed into mile one, I noticed what I can only describe as a full-body fatigue. I wasn’t sore in one spot. I wasn’t tired in one spot. I was sore and tired in all spots. I still couldn’t look down at my feet after being on the bike for 6-hours. The plantar fascia on my left foot was sore. The chafing on my neck from my wetsuit was starting to feel sunburnt despite sunscreen. I was not hungry at all, but knew I needed nutrition. I smartly grabbed a Gatorade and water at the first aid station and walked for a few seconds so that I could down those. If I never see orange Gatorade again after this race, it will be too soon.
As the first few miles ticked by, I felt myself slowing. The 8:30-pace that I’d started at was suddenly only a hair under 9:00 around mile 5. By mile 8 I felt the wheels start to come off. Instead of trying to crash and burn I decided to steer into the skid. I made the executive decision to go into emergency sustain mode. I walked 0.1-miles and ran 0.9-miles of every mile. I tried to line this up with an aid station, and honestly, I did pretty well with it. This allowed me to take in as much food as possible without throwing it back up. I switched from Gu to pretzels and cookies. I’d wash those down with water at each aid station and continue the death march as best as my stomach allowed me.
Remember the singlet? Green NYC Marathon? Yes. I was called “New York.” All race. By everyone. I’m from Tampa y’all. I say “y’all.” Cold is anything below 60°. My singlet was absolutely false advertising. As I ran past the lady in a devil-maid outfit handing out free spanks with a hand-wand-thing, I briefly garbled out “I’m from Tampa…” and realized that I was fighting a losing battle. Not wanting to waste air, I eventually settled on “yay Brooklyn” any time someone yelled “New York!” at me. That seemed to go over well, so I tried to stick with it, but I think I said Queens a few times. Oh well. Tired brain.
The run was two loops of an out and back that ended in St. Andrews State Park after running through some residential areas on the way. I thoroughly enjoyed the support of aid stations every mile, but there were certainly some dead spots at some low points for me. The first 3 or so miles when I was on the struggle bus (call it mile 9-11) I meandered through the neighborhoods wishing for a swift death. This request was not granted. I settled into a rhythm eventually that had me hitting 12-minute miles while recovering slightly. If I sped up much beyond this I felt all of the Gu and Gatorade start to make a comeback as well so I slowed back down. I was able to spot my wife cheering for me at the halfway point…just in time for me to take a walk break…
The second loop was, obviously, much slower than the first, but I had hit equilibrium. I wasn’t going to throw up unless I sped up. This was as OK as I was going to get. Around this time, I sorta got the “never again” mantra. I realized that my initial goals were absolutely pants-on-head-crazy. I had it in my mind that I was going to do a 3:30 marathon and that just wasn’t attainable for me after the swim & bike. So I settled into the “never again” mindset and aimed for the finish. Spoiler alert again – there probably will be an “again” as I’m already eyeing the 2020 half IM in Haines City. I trudged on as day slipped into dusk and dusk slipped into freaking dark. I had brought my headlamp to the start but decided not to use it…I ran with someone briefly who had stuck their headlamp in their special needs run bag. So that they could retrieve it at the halfway point. This was brilliant. Figuratively and literally. I wish I’d done this. Instead I had to rely on the sparse street lights and try not to die. If I fell I don’t know that I’d be getting back up. I heard someone fall about 100-yards behind me around mile 21…and I felt really bad for them, but I could hear that people had already stopped to help and I wasn’t sure I could turn around without fading out like Spiderman during the Snap.
Around 9-miles left in the run I began to eye my total time. By some error of math I realized that I had a slim chance of finishing in just under 14-hours if I averaged 12-minute miles to the end. I have no idea how I arrived at this conclusion, as if you’ve read above, I finished in just under 13-hours. I am an engineer so math is (allegedly) my thing. I don’t know. I wish I could figure it out, but somehow I thought the best I could do was around mid 13:50’s for total time. I shot for that as best as I could.
Around mile 25 I finally saw the light at the end of the tunnel. I could hear Mike Reilly announcing as people crossed the finish line. Gods I was close then. I decided to run the last 1.0-miles. This meant a walk break at mile 25 and then a good sprint/try not to barf to the finish. Then I heard it. Not the finish. No. I heard someone play charge on a trumpet. It was not a particularly inspiring tune, but it was a trumpet. I have played trumpet for 23-years. I am 32. I played trumpet on a collegiate level while going to school for engineering. For 6 semesters I was in my university’s jazz band. I am a closet band-nerd, without the closet. And I heard a trumpet. I have always wanted to borrow someone’s trumpet and play near the end of a marathon. I’ve brought mine to cheer people on before when I wasn’t racing. But here, at the IRONMAN, was my chance to play a trumpet during a race. I kept my eyes peeled. I knew if I ran past him, I wouldn’t be able to turn around. There on the sidelines around mile 25.5 I saw him. He had a silver trumpet with what was either a 3C or 7C mouthpiece. I know because I’ve played enough trumpets in my day and have used both of those a lot. I prefer something a lot shallower, but beggars can’t be choosers. I quickly asked him, between wheezes, if I could use his trumpet. He happily handed it over. I attempted to belt out the end of the tune from Family guy but managed to flub the last few notes; it’s hard to hit a double-G on a big mouthpiece when you’re used to a golf-tee. I then audibled to a brief lick from the James Bond theme with a wiiiiiiiiiiild shake on the last note and absolutely nailed it. People cheered. It was glorious. I handed back the trumpet and outright sprinted towards the finish.
The adrenaline from the trumpet turned me into Eliud Kipchoge. Well. OK. It enabled me to run at a 7:30 min/mile pace for the first time all day. I was passing people left and right. Which was a nice change from doing my very best to not barf a rainbow of cookies, pretzels, and more Gu than one man should take. It finally dawned on me how close I was to the finish and I began to wish I’d tried to speed up a little earlier…although I wouldn’t have had the speed boost without the trumpet so it might’ve come back to haunt me. I started running down the chute and ran through the big red thingy that was not the finish line. That was sorta false advertising. I passed a group of 4 people just before the actual finish line and promptly stopped running as soon as I was able…mainly I didn’t want to fall down.

Post-race

A race volunteer immediately greeted and congratulated me on my finish. He asked me how I felt. To which I replied, using my best John Mulaney voice, “I’m going to die!” Apparently, my sarcasm didn’t roll off well enough because then I got an escort the whole way through who almost took me to the medical tent. My wife, a nurse, was none-too-pleased with this, and was right on the other side of the fence as I was trying to exit. Eventually the well-meaning volunteer realized that I was indeed going to survive and let me go. I grabbed my medal, took a photo before I left the finish.
At this point I asked my wife if her app said my unofficial finish time and to please tell me it starts with a “13.” She looked at me funny and replied “oh yeah easily; you’re 12:53.” I was elated and utterly perplexed at my inability to do math during a 12+hour race. Who knew! I hobbled gingerly around with my wife for a little before collecting my bike & gear bags. Apparently the racker had decided I wasn’t being serious when I told them to keep it. For the best I suppose. Once I had my stuff we walked the ~0.8-miles back to our hotel and I showered. We went to Pineapple Willy’s for a drink and some food. I was barely able to keep the fries and chicken tenders down so I sipped my drink very gingerly and decided to call it a night before 11 PM. My watch absolutely refused to upload (apparently loads of people are having issues with the Garmin 945 right now), and when it finally did it was Sunday morning. Also, it forgot how to read my HR data so it says I had a 156-HR for everything. Garmin Connect shows it right, but not Strava. Close enough.
We loaded the truck up Sunday morning and checked out of our hotel for the 6-hour drive home. We stopped for lunch around 1:00 (EST) and my legs were sore but OK. Around 2.5-hours from home we stopped one last time after a large traffic jam because a semi-truck broke down in the middle lane of I-75 and no one thought it prudent to move to the shoulder. As I exited the truck my right knee decided to tell me it was done. I almost ended up on my face. It’s OK now, but I was pretty sore for the rest of the ride and most of the night after.
I’m very seriously considering the Florida Half Ironman in Haines City on April 19, 2020, as my next goal race. I want to Boston Qualify in terms of marathon, but I was planning on doing a 50-mile trail run in April and the HIM seems far less terrible. I haven’t decided yet, but that’s where I’m leaning right now. I’ve also switched away from “never again” to “not this year or next,” but I’m eyeing another Ironman with the goal of having a sub-4 marathon and a sub-6 bike. I’d like to see around 1:15 on the swim as well. I think I can make these improvements given time and will go into the next one with far more realistic goals.
I haven’t worked out since the race, but am planning a 20-mile ride for Wednesday morning and probably a 3-mile run Thursday morning. Nothing fast, but something to get me restarted. The marathon was a truly humbling experience that I haven’t endured in such a manner since my very first marathon and I’d like to get another shot at a sort of redemption. I’m sure that happens to a lot of first-timers…lesson learned.

2019.09.09 09:04 Buck_Joffrey Consensus Network EP35: Cryptocurrency and Asymmetric Risk with Teeka Tiwari

Catch the full episode: https://www.consensusnetwork.io/podcastepisodes/2019/9/8/ep35-cryptocurrency-and-asymmetric-risk-with-teeka-tiwari
Buck: Welcome back to the show everyone. Today my guest on Wealth Formula Podcast is no stranger to the show. He's a guy who grew up in foster care and came over the US at the age of 16 with just 150 bucks in his pocket and the clothes on his back. And then by the age of 18 becomes the youngest employee at Lehman Brothers. By 20 he becomes the youngest vice president in Lehman history. Later in his career he goes on to launch successful hedge fund and lived the Wall Street dream. I mean he's known on Wall Street as the guy who's made a fortune on what is known as asymmetric risk which is what we’re going to talk about in quite a bit and for the rest of us, for many of us that is, he is best known for being the editor of the Palm Beach confidential newsletter which focuses on digital currencies and I am a subscriber to this by the way. Teeka, welcome back to Wealth Formula Podcast, Teeka Tiwari.
Teeka: Thanks Buck. It’s a pleasure to be here and thank you for having me.
Buck: Yeah so you know you were on not too long ago and some people are listening to the stuff about cannabis and they're probably thinking to themselves, why is this guy talking about cannabis and digital currencies like what is his specialty? In fact the way I'm thinking about this there's one main thing that they have in common, they're both in this area that you call and we call asymmetric risk which is really your thing. Discuss what that means and if you would how have you applied it to your own growth and ultimately to your own wealth.
Teeka: So before I get into asymmetric risk I want to talk about how I discovered asymmetric risk and how I changed the way that I yeah. So when I was in my 20s I developed a lot of wealth by taking massive risk in the stock options and commodities market. And I would bet huge positions. And then that all came to an end in the late 90s when I was on the wrong side of a series of trades that were triggered by the Asian financial crisis which ultimately compelled me to file for bankruptcy. And so I had lost about ten years of wealth creation which was considerable at the time. And what I learned was that I had to change my approach that I couldn't get it all every single time otherwise I would never get off this boom-and-bust merry-go-round. So what I realized was is that I would I would build the portfolio of somewhat safer more income oriented investments and then I would focus on these ideas that are called asymmetric risk trade. So what's an asymmetric risk trade? An asymmetric risk trade is where you can take a relatively trivial sum of money and if the idea doesn't work out it doesn't impact your net your net worth or your day-to-day lifestyle in any way shape or form. But the asymmetric part of it is is that if it does work out it can absolutely move the needle on your net worth. So an example of that would be something like neo which I recommended at around 12 cents that ended up going up to about a hundred and sixty one dollars so that's something that you could have put a thousand dollars in and turn it into over a million dollars. That's a classic asymmetric trade. So what I what I tell my readers is you can't build your whole portfolio around high-risk asymmetric trades. But if you take let's say five to ten percent of your liquid net worth and allocate it to these types of situations in a and one of the things I talk about is using uniform position sizing, what you put yourself in the position to do is absolutely grow your network sometimes three four five six X without putting your current lifestyle at risk and it is a sweet spot of wealth creation that I've created and popularized now for several years that has not only transformed my financial life but the financial life of many of my readers.
Buck: So as you know Teeka my group the Wealth Formula Group in general I mean there's a lot of people who are well-to-do they're you know accredited investors they have you know typically probably more money to invest than others they're you know and I say this because there is a little bit of a difference there when it comes to somebody who's barely getting by living check to check, that there is an opportunity in your portfolio to say okay what percentage of this portfolio could I put in that I mean listen if I lose it no big deal I mean I won't be happy about it but it won't hurt me that much on the other hand this could explode. Now when you look at it from the perspective of somebody who's got a fair amount of money and link who's investing you know several hundred thousand dollars a year or maybe a million dollars or something like that like what do you think is a reasonable amount of a portfolio? Like I know for example that even universities are getting into this and they're looking at hey maybe you know 1/2 of 1% or something like that I mean I know you're not in the business of giving financial advice but I'm just curious kind of what your approach would be in terms of allocation.
Teeka: So again generally speaking I would say 5 to 10% of your liquid net worth. So let's say you've got a business that kicks out a million a year that you have to allocate for your investment 50 to $100,000. Definitely nobody likes to lose 50 or a hundred thousand dollars but it's not going to have a material impact on your lifestyle but if you invest 50 to $100,000 and these asymmetric bets pay off you're talking about five six seven eight ten twelve million dollars in returns on what is a relatively tiny investment relative to your net worth and that is the beauty of this approach.
Buck: Yeah and and I'm glad you said that because that's exactly kind of where I'm at sort of lingering between five and ten percent you know and for me you know I I kind of put this in there about you know I kind of put this in that area with startups right I'm not gonna I'm not gonna have a separate category just for digital currencies but anything that is super high risk and high reward and I'm sitting about five or ten percent.
Teeka: That all goes into the same bucket so that's right that for everybody it's not just oh this is crypto currencies five to ten percent and startups is five to ten percent. No all go into the same bucket is asymmetric risk.
Buck: Yeah now okay so we kind of got ahead of ourselves and you know you haven't been on the show talking about crypto currency in a fair amount of time we have a lot more new listeners now so for those who know very little about cryptocurrency but they're smart they're sophisticated say they're a group of you know I know worth investors you're talking to you they've not heard about this how do you explain this in the most efficient way possible and what the significance of it is?
Teeka: Okay so that's a really big question.
Buck: Yeah no I don't but I bet you've answered it a few times.
Teeka: I'm gonna take a shot at it. So listen as a wealthy investor myself why would I want to bother with cryptocurrency? I'm already rich why do I want to mess around with this? So I'm gonna answer it from that perspective. One it's always nice to make more money. But two the bigger reason is, is what I want people to understand especially wealthy investors is that it's very rare to invest at the beginning of a brand-new asset class very very rare right it's brand-new asset classes though just don't come about. Digital currency is a brand-new asset class that has legs. So why does it have legs? It has legs because we have never had an asset class that is completely non correlated with the business cycle. It's never existed before. Every asset class in the world is somehow tied to the business cycle gold, industrial, metals, currencies, stocks, bonds, they're all tied to the business cycle in one way shape or form things like Bitcoin are not so why why does that make it valuable it makes it valuable because if you are pension fund you're allocating capital across traditional and non-traditional assets you still have this problem of deep correlation right the business cycle falls apart and you're taking hits across the board. So there have been studies that have shown just with a small allocation of Bitcoin anywhere from one to five percent across the portfolio even though Bitcoin is wildly volatile because it is not correlated and not tied to the business cycle it actually reduces your overall volatility and your overall risk in your portfolio and that is incredibly valuable. So just from a high level portfolio construction standpoint you will see the world's hedge funds, pension funds, massive allocators of capital start to move tiny slivers of their money into things like Bitcoin and we're talking tiny slivers of an 80 trillion dollar pie right it's in real terms its enormous money in relative terms relative to what they have under management it's a small amount but when you're coming off a base where the whole markets only worth 300 billion it doesn't take much to move the market. So that's from the high level that's why you must have some cryptocurrency. And then the next level beyond that is that mankind has never had an asset there's never been an asset we're a stronger man couldn't take it from a weaker man. So whether it was the caveman knocking one guy over the head for his shells or the government coming in in Venezuela and confiscating money or the Argentinian government saying oh we're having a holiday and taking all your assets from the bank something Brazil has done on multiple occasions. You know the everyday person has not had this ability to hold an asset that has been beyond the confiscationability of a government so something like Bitcoin and digital currency if you are smart and how you buy it if you don't talk about it you buy quietly and you store it appropriately it is absolutely impossible short of somebody putting a literally putting a gun next to your head for them to take that asset from you and that is remarkable because even if you've got a million dollars in gold and you somehow manage to hide it how are you gonna travel the world with a million dollars in gold how are you gonna spend a million dollars in gold you just gonna go to the store and break a piece off with a piece of pliers you just can't do that the beauty of digital currency is you can walk around with a thumb drive that big with a billion dollars in it and nobody knows and let's say hey oh I don't want to keep a billion in Bitcoin I want to do it in a stable coin fine put it in a stable coin. But this idea this portability of money and this complete ownership of an asset that nobody else has any ability to take from you that is valuable that is incredibly valuable.
Buck: So let me ask you a what may seem like a very basic simple question but I think it's worth asking. So why is it so volatile why is Bitcoin Ethereum for example why these are the major the two biggest by market cap why are they so volatile and you know to the extent that they are uncorrelated do you see that as a function of the size of the market cap or is it something else inherent about digital currencies that makes it this volatile?
Teeka: I think it's both. One they're relatively small so if for instance if you look at Microsoft in its early days it was a crazy volatile stock up 40% down 40% down 30% going through bear markets that lasted two years wrecking billions of dollars in value you look at the early days of Microsoft from the 80s into the mid 90s the stock was all over the place and then as the stock got bigger and more mature of course volatility tamp down so you will see that. So what I say with volatility is that welcomed that volatility without it the opportunity to make enormous amounts of money off a small amount of money won't exist. At some point Bitcoin and the theorem will move to this more blue chip status where maybe you make eight percent a year or six percent a year or something or something like that thank goodness we're not there yet. The other side of it is is that there you know the markets that are built around trading these are completely unregulated. They're wild. And there's all types of crazy manipulation that goes on in the market you have some Bitcoin whale let's sell a thousand coins and scare the market down and then let's go buy back 2000 coins it's the Wild West and somebody a skeptic might say well why do I want to buy now why don't I buy when the market calms down because when you buy when the market calms down and it's moved to this very highly regulated very low volatility asset it could have ten x between now and then. So yes there is volatility but I believe if you position size rationally you will be well rewarded for that moment for that volatility and that uncertainty.
Buck: So admittedly I was skeptical of cryptocurrency early on and you know I finally did get in and my timing was actually really good it was a fall early fall 2017 right before a massive bull run. And that of course was followed by what has been called crypto winter. So the question is, is winter over because it sure seems like it's an awful long thawing period I mean no we seem like to have gotten there but there's a stall is it over or do you still see some you know rocky shores ahead before there's a you know big move potentially to all-time highs?
Teeka: Well no crypto winter was over in April. I put out a report talking about that and I pinpointed when that happened it happened when Bitcoin broke its downtrend line. So if you go back and if you look at each of the so-called crypto winters or horrible bear markets that have been in the space Bitcoin will always lead the market first always and then the altcoins play catch up right so it feels worse than it is right now because the alt coins got crushed and many of them have stayed crushed they haven't come back that’s probably the most popular question I get take okay bitcoins up and it's you know been up as much as 400 percent this year but why aren't the old coins moving and my answer is because it's not yet time. If you look back at the data generally there is at least a six-month time lag between the time Bitcoin breaks its downtrend line and the time that the alt coins move higher. So that that next stage we'll be entering to in about October and you'll see a percolation in the alt coins and they'll start playing catch-up.
Buck: Does that also correlate Teeka with Bitcoin like an all-time high for Bitcoin though? I mean I mean obviously Bitcoin has recovered substantially we're like you know three four hundred percent up from you know where we were when Bitcoin was at you know three thousand. The question I have is and I have not looked at this history closely even though there's this recovery, do you have to start approaching all-time highs for those alts to really make their move is that what you've seen historically?
Teeka: No you look back when they all started playing catch up in 2016 Bitcoin was starting to move higher and then going into 2017 and then the alts really didn't start kicking in until around May and that's when they started moving and eventually the alts outpaced the type of action that was going on with bitcoins. So if we look back at how the altcoins move generally what happens is you have a new series of buyers that come into the market and they're all centered around Bitcoin. And that's happening right now. Kelly Lafleur just announced from backed that they're gonna have physically backed futures have been approved September 23rd I believe is the date that they're actually gonna start trading. So this brings in a whole new group of traders a whole new group of investors and then so they start getting their feet with Bitcoin and all of a sudden they're there they might not even know anything about alt coins Buck that that's the thing right for a lot of people out there to them when they think digital currency the only thing they really think of is Bitcoin.
Buck: So as the alt coins are just anything that's not Bitcoin for anybody what we keep talking about so anything Ethereum, any other and any other token that's not Bitcoin generally it's called an altcoin.
Teeka: Right so as they come in they start getting exposed to these other coins and then they start playing with them and they start investing and then they start trading with them and all of a sudden people look at look at Bitcoin and they look at something else it's a little bit smaller and they say okay let's let's play around here and then you start seeing this broadening of the rally.
Buck: So you think that this time around though specifically I know you you you're part of your thesis is that this time around may be different because you know bigger money institutional money, but one of the things that we've really looked at or you've looked at and talked about is you know one of the limitations to big money coming into this stuff is custodianship but the altcoins a lot of the old coins most of them are not gonna have that kind of infrastructure so does that I mean just playing devil's advocate does that then say well they may just stick to whatever they can buy on Coinbase and Bakkt.
Teeka: Well they have well these coins most of the all coins are ERC 20 coins so in terms of having the infrastructure as long as you can support ERC 20 you can support hundreds of coins that currently trade and so if you look at what Bakkt is doing they're gonna be supporting Bitcoin first and then they're going to be supporting Ethereum. So if they support a theory they will naturally support every other ERC20 that's out there and remember companies like Bakkt they're in the business of incentivizing trading because they get paid for everything that that goes through their network. So it would be odd to imagine that they're only going to limit their entire business models with just the trading of Bitcoin it doesn't make any sense. If you look at what they've done in the securities market they haven't just limited themselves to the trading of the S&P 500 they trade everything so I do think that liquidity will trickle down into the whole market and of course the ERC 20 coins I think will be the first to get the most amount of liquidity because it will be the easiest to support from from a back end technology standpoint. The other thing I want to mention is that another driver of the alt coins would be what I believe will be a proliferation of securitization products. So ETF's different types of futures I see a world I've gotta believe within the next 12 months we will see an ETF that will give us the ability to own 20 30 40 maybe 50 coins in one ETF that trades or one type of security that trades maybe it's a coin put out by back and says okay you buy this coin and you've got the top hundred altcoins exposure to the top hundred alt coins.
Buck: Right and then you know I know a lot of people bring do you talk about the ETF for Bitcoin and this has been sort of bounce back but yeah you know we're delayed with the SEC several times do you really think of that as a big deal compared to some of the other movements that you you mentioned Bakkt and I think there's LedgerX things like that where that are allowing for institutional buyers to dissipate is an etf really make much of a difference in your view?
Teeka: I think an ETF is important but I think the SEC is becoming less important in that process and I'll tell you why. Several very large brokerage firms from the Fidelity to eTrade to TD Ameritrade have announced that they want to offer Bitcoin trading to their users. So I'm talking about a system where you can log in click on a button on your Fidelity account and you can start trading Bitcoin the way you with the sp500. Once that comes out let's assume it comes out this year which they've talked about but they want to do it this year but we'll see everything seems to run a little slower than people think. But if that that comes out this year and something like 15 to 20 million people can now trade Bitcoin directly from their brokerage accounts to me it makes an ETF a foregone conclusion because the SEC has no reason now to stand in the way of it. And that's what I'm think that they're waiting for Buck the SEC is not known for blazing a trail the SEC is not known for moving ahead of the market. So if they can look and say well Fidelity is offering it TD Ameritrade is offering it Schwab is offering it we are asses covered if we approve an ETF I think it's really a CYA problem with the SEC they don't want to be the first to make this move and let's say there's a problem with it and everybody blames the SEC.
Buck: You know there is this product data that I know of maybe you could talk about this because then you know in the context of an ETF and being able to buy Bitcoin easily you know.
Teeka: I look at the there's a grayscale Bitcoin trust gbtc which is publicly traded I mean what's the difference what am I missing there I mean that's a closed-end fund that has limited liquidity and sometimes trade at a hundred percent premium.
Buck: Yeah okay so lots of things happening in the spaces you mentioned and one of the things that I think that that you said that is very seems very clearly true whether or not what you know whether or not you believe there's gonna be another bull market is there's a ton of of Technology improvements and infrastructure and all these things that are going on and price mean a lot more by the way then back in 2017 when prices were off the charts so within that context what are you know say they the one or two things that are you most excited about in the space that gives you the greatest confidence that this is you know this is the the new you know the new dot-com era I guess after the rebels fell as you mentioned before offline and you know the rise of the Amazons and the apples in the crypto world.
Teeka: I'll tell you why it's because I'm finally seeing major corporations real corporations doing partnerships with crypto companies not memorandums of understanding MOU’s are meaningless but real partnerships where they're actually using the technology this is stuff i talked about a year ago. Eighteen and a half months ago I said like real companies are going to start coming into this space they're gonna start partnering with some of these companies and start using the technology and it's happening. I'm seeing real businesses like Barclays put up their own money to back certain platforms I was like for instance with trade finance. BMW putting up their own money for back in logistics. So this is a huge shift in in in the type of person that is getting involved in the marketplace. I'm seeing massive credit card processors get involved with tiny startups because they want to piggy back what's going on and the markets that they're opening up with with their with their applications. So this to me Buck is is such a difference maker right like if we came into 2019 and none of these deals were happening I would say I would be on here and I would say buck you know what the cake just isn't baked yet man we just probably gotta wait another year. But when I start seeing very large very smart corporate players making strategic moves to align themselves to certain projects, you can't ignore that. This is something you can't ignore. And so this is what has me incredibly excited for this next phase that I see taking place in crypto.
Buck: You know one of the one things that you mentioned earlier and you've mentioned in the past which I agree with generally speaking is that you know some level of regulation is a good thing so that it becomes less of a manipulated market. So it becomes something that you know larger big money investors and institutional investors take an interest in because they don't want to be in something that's you know that's that's not legit. There is a negative a little bit to that and that some opportunities out there are you know start or you're starting to get restricted in terms of American investors. You know one of the examples I can think of to me is one of what I'm probably one of the biggest things is Binance which is you know the number one trading platform in the world is now effectively you know saying US investors we'll see you later we're gonna build something you know sometime and we're gonna call it you know Binance US and we're gonna have a lot fewer tokens there what concerns me is an investor in some of the various digital currencies at that point is well how does that affect my liquidity as a US investor and I'm wondering how it is affecting your your portfolio?
Teeka: Okay so there's a couple of things around that and I can't advise people to do this I can only report on what some people are doing to get around this geofencing. They're using Virtual Private Networks. With the use of a virtual private network can get access to any exchange in the world so long as they're using a VPN that mimics a country that this exchange is allowed to operate in. So as far as I know Binance is not doing anything to prevent anybody from using a VPN so just want to get that out there.
Buck: Jut to interrupt there I mean that that in itself is a little tricky though right I mean isn't it because then you've got to deal with you know US taxes and all that if you're dealing…
Teeka: Well you always have to deal with US taxes no matter what whether you're using a VPN or not.
Buck: So it wouldn't be illegal technically to use Virtual Private Network to use Binance?
Teeka: For me as an individual would I be breaking any laws, I don't think so but I'm not an attorney. Binance might be breaking some laws or but I don't think that I would be but again this is something everybody has to make their own decision with. But the other side of this is that by Nance is putting together their own decks which is a decentralized exchange which will allow for peer-to-peer trading and I think you'll see more of these types of decentralized exchanges which I'm a big fan of I hate the idea of centralized exchanges anyway. So there are some speed problems with decentralized exchanges but they're getting ironed out and I think within in the future a lot of trading is going to move to peer-to-peer but you're right it's certainly a concern for now I would say the biggest solution that I have read about and again I can't formally tell people to do this is to use a virtual private network.
Buck: The other question though I think as just as a follow-up on that Teeka is that okay so say you use a VPN but not everybody's gonna do that you know probably most people aren't gonna do that didn't then there's an issues just in terms of liquidity right or don't you think that's a problem anymore?
Teeka: I do think it's a problem but I also rely on the greed factor of the participants in this market that they will figure out a solution because there's too much money to be made for liquidity that wants to come into the market somebody will find a way to bring that liquidity into that okay so anyway so like you you know I believe that Bitcoin bull run is inevitable what do you think of anything what are you looking for that might trigger and I know you you're saying already that we're kind of in a bull market already but what triggers that sort of next level all-time high thing is there anything or do you think this is something that's gonna be more of a gradual rise or organic than it was in 2017?
Teeka: Well there are several things which I'm gonna be talking about specifically I don't really want to spill the beans on that here but I have an event coming up which I talk in more detail about a very specific event that I think will act as a massive catalyst. Outside of that I think this whole idea of I call it this kind of new narrative right among institutions where before two years ago three years ago they looked at Bitcoin and they said oh my gosh Bitcoin that's for Gun Runners and pornographers where we we have no interest in Bitcoin. And now they're starting to see Bitcoin as a way to eliminate this correlation risk in their portfolio. So I think that narrative will gain more ground in fact I've been invited to a conference in San Moritz with 500 top-tier investors and I will be putting forward that research that I've drawn together to that audience and really helping propagate that narrative because it is transformational if you manage a large pool of capital what you can do with your overall volatility and how you can adjust it lower through just a tiny amount of Bitcoin is absolutely remarkable. So I think that's more of a slow burn Buck, but as that gains speed I mean can you just imagine just the amount of buying if pension funds say okay going forward half of 1% of all our assets are going to be in digital currency.
Buck: I mean in part of part of understanding that for people is to understand one of the the great things about Bitcoin in particular is that this is an asset with that is fixed to a certain number of Bitcoin that'll ever be created so you know we've never really had a that kind of monetary thing before I mean to a certain extent gold is that way of course but even you know gold there's always more gold every year a little bit more gold. This is a truly deflationary asset that really where you know you put more money in the pot you know each one of those bitcoins gonna be worth a lot more and that I can't think of anything else that's out there like that.
Teeka: I agree.
Buck: I know you've got you know the the Palm Beach Confidential Newsletter Teeka I just have to compliment you because I you know I have been a reader for a couple years it is one of the most comprehensive and thoughtful investment newsletters I've ever subscribed to. I mean it is totally the real deal and I appreciate that and one of the things that people can't join any time and it opens and closes and I know that it is going to be opening up and you're going to do a webinar coming up on that but can you talk a little bit about the newsletter and the event that's coming up?
Teeka: Yeah sure so in the newsletter what I do is I will typically find one idea each month and give you a complete breakdown on the idea. And what I try to do I understand not everybody is a cryptocurrency enthusiastic of their currency investor and so what I try to do is write in a way that is easy to digest, easy to understand, not simplistic but very easy for the layperson to get their head around and to really understand the concept that we're talking about. And I have not opened up Palm Beach confidential for any new members for this whole year, this is the first time that I've done that and the reason is, is I only open up Palm Beach confidential to new members when there's an event that I think can have a massive impact on the broad market. So on September 18th at 8 p.m. I'm going to talk about one of these events and the last time this event took place you could literally take 500 dollars and turn it into five million dollars. There's only a few times in the history of crypto where you have those types of windows of opportunity and so one of those windows of opportunity is about to open and so at this event I'm gonna explain what it is why it works and why it will absolutely happen this particular event will absolutely happen there's nothing that can stop the event from taking place. And so I'm gonna share my five top coins, one of which I'll give away for free during the webinar that I think have that ability to go from five hundred dollars literally into five million. So it's an exciting time and I'm really kind of chomping at the bit to kind of get in front of everybody and talk about this research that I've discovered.
Buck: One last thing I want to point out is I get you know when we talk like this sometimes people get really skeptical they're like yeah that sounds a little salesy Buck that's not really kind of the usual thing that you're talking about and I get it right. The reality is this is a situation this isn't you know there are real people out there there are kids out there who've become multimillionaires by doing exactly this. And so it's real, that's why I'm interested.
Teeka: In my own investing I've seen a thousand dollar investment go to as much as 1.6 million dollars, ok so it's real. The other thing I want to convey to everybody I don't have to write newsletters anymore I don't have to come on podcast I can sit on a beach all I want ok. So why do I do this I do this because moving the needle on somebody's net worth maybe not this audience maybe my broader audience it's incredibly gratifying right helping people change their lives without putting their current lifestyle at risk that's I mean if that's my one legacy in this life could you ask for anything more Buck? Really it's incredibly gratifying to be able to do that and we have this opportunity now and but this opportunity won't last forever at some point this will be a multi trillion dollar asset class and the ability to make gains like that just won't exist.
Buck: Teeka, as always it's been a pleasure talking to you and thanks again for being on Wealth Formula Podcast.
Teeka: Thank you Buck.
Buck: We'll be right back.

Wealth Formula Episode 175: Cryptocurrency and Asymmetric Risk with Teeka Tiwari

Catch the full episode: https://www.wealthformula.com/podcast/175-cryptocurrency-and-asymmetric-risk-with-teeka-tiwari/
Buck: Welcome back to the show everyone. Today my guest on Wealth Formula Podcast is no stranger to the show. He’s a guy who grew up in foster care and came over the US at the age of 16 with just 150 bucks in his pocket and the clothes on his back. And then by the age of 18 becomes the youngest employee at Lehman Brothers. By 20 he becomes the youngest vice president in Lehman history. Later in his career he goes on to launch successful hedge fund and lived the Wall Street dream. I mean he’s known on Wall Street as the guy who’s made a fortune on what is known as asymmetric risk which is what we’re going to talk about in quite a bit and for the rest of us, for many of us that is, he is best known for being the editor of the Palm Beach confidential newsletter which focuses on digital currencies and I am a subscriber to this by the way. Teeka, welcome back to Wealth Formula Podcast, Teeka Tiwari.
Teeka: Thanks Buck. It’s a pleasure to be here and thank you for having me.
Buck: Yeah so you know you were on not too long ago and some people are listening to the stuff about cannabis and they’re probably thinking to themselves, why is this guy talking about cannabis and digital currencies like what is his specialty? In fact the way I’m thinking about this there’s one main thing that they have in common, they’re both in this area that you call and we call asymmetric risk which is really your thing. Discuss what that means and if you would how have you applied it to your own growth and ultimately to your own wealth.
Teeka: So before I get into asymmetric risk I want to talk about how I discovered asymmetric risk and how I changed the way that I yeah. So when I was in my 20s I developed a lot of wealth by taking massive risk in the stock options and commodities market. And I would bet huge positions. And then that all came to an end in the late 90s when I was on the wrong side of a series of trades that were triggered by the Asian financial crisis which ultimately compelled me to file for bankruptcy. And so I had lost about ten years of wealth creation which was considerable at the time. And what I learned was that I had to change my approach that I couldn’t get it all every single time otherwise I would never get off this boom-and-bust merry-go-round. So what I realized was is that I would I would build the portfolio of somewhat safer more income oriented investments and then I would focus on these ideas that are called asymmetric risk trade. So what’s an asymmetric risk trade? An asymmetric risk trade is where you can take a relatively trivial sum of money and if the idea doesn’t work out it doesn’t impact your net your net worth or your day-to-day lifestyle in any way shape or form. But the asymmetric part of it is is that if it does work out it can absolutely move the needle on your net worth. So an example of that would be something like neo which I recommended at around 12 cents that ended up going up to about a hundred and sixty one dollars so that’s something that you could have put a thousand dollars in and turn it into over a million dollars. That’s a classic asymmetric trade. So what I what I tell my readers is you can’t build your whole portfolio around high-risk asymmetric trades. But if you take let’s say five to ten percent of your liquid net worth and allocate it to these types of situations in a and one of the things I talk about is using uniform position sizing, what you put yourself in the position to do is absolutely grow your network sometimes three four five six X without putting your current lifestyle at risk and it is a sweet spot of wealth creation that I’ve created and popularized now for several years that has not only transformed my financial life but the financial life of many of my readers.
Buck: So as you know Teeka my group the Wealth Formula Group in general I mean there’s a lot of people who are well-to-do they’re you know accredited investors they have you know typically probably more money to invest than others they’re you know and I say this because there is a little bit of a difference there when it comes to somebody who’s barely getting by living check to check, that there is an opportunity in your portfolio to say okay what percentage of this portfolio could I put in that I mean listen if I lose it no big deal I mean I won’t be happy about it but it won’t hurt me that much on the other hand this could explode. Now when you look at it from the perspective of somebody who’s got a fair amount of money and link who’s investing you know several hundred thousand dollars a year or maybe a million dollars or something like that like what do you think is a reasonable amount of a portfolio? Like I know for example that even universities are getting into this and they’re looking at hey maybe you know 1/2 of 1% or something like that I mean I know you’re not in the business of giving financial advice but I’m just curious kind of what your approach would be in terms of allocation.
Teeka: So again generally speaking I would say 5 to 10% of your liquid net worth. So let’s say you’ve got a business that kicks out a million a year that you have to allocate for your investment 50 to $100,000. Definitely nobody likes to lose 50 or a hundred thousand dollars but it’s not going to have a material impact on your lifestyle but if you invest 50 to $100,000 and these asymmetric bets pay off you’re talking about five six seven eight ten twelve million dollars in returns on what is a relatively tiny investment relative to your net worth and that is the beauty of this approach.
Buck: Yeah and and I’m glad you said that because that’s exactly kind of where I’m at sort of lingering between five and ten percent you know and for me you know I I kind of put this in there about you know I kind of put this in that area with startups right I’m not gonna I’m not gonna have a separate category just for digital currencies but anything that is super high risk and high reward and I’m sitting about five or ten percent.
Teeka: That all goes into the same bucket so that’s right that for everybody it’s not just oh this is crypto currencies five to ten percent and startups is five to ten percent. No all go into the same bucket is asymmetric risk.
Buck: Yeah now okay so we kind of got ahead of ourselves and you know you haven’t been on the show talking about crypto currency in a fair amount of time we have a lot more new listeners now so for those who know very little about cryptocurrency but they’re smart they’re sophisticated say they’re a group of you know I know worth investors you’re talking to you they’ve not heard about this how do you explain this in the most efficient way possible and what the significance of it is?
Teeka: Okay so that’s a really big question.
Buck: Yeah no I don’t but I bet you’ve answered it a few times.
Teeka: I’m gonna take a shot at it. So listen as a wealthy investor myself why would I want to bother with cryptocurrency? I’m already rich why do I want to mess around with this? So I’m gonna answer it from that perspective. One it’s always nice to make more money. But two the bigger reason is, is what I want people to understand especially wealthy investors is that it’s very rare to invest at the beginning of a brand-new asset class very very rare right it’s brand-new asset classes though just don’t come about. Digital currency is a brand-new asset class that has legs. So why does it have legs? It has legs because we have never had an asset class that is completely non correlated with the business cycle. It’s never existed before. Every asset class in the world is somehow tied to the business cycle gold, industrial, metals, currencies, stocks, bonds, they’re all tied to the business cycle in one way shape or form things like Bitcoin are not so why why does that make it valuable it makes it valuable because if you are pension fund you’re allocating capital across traditional and non-traditional assets you still have this problem of deep correlation right the business cycle falls apart and you’re taking hits across the board. So there have been studies that have shown just with a small allocation of Bitcoin anywhere from one to five percent across the portfolio even though Bitcoin is wildly volatile because it is not correlated and not tied to the business cycle it actually reduces your overall volatility and your overall risk in your portfolio and that is incredibly valuable. So just from a high level portfolio construction standpoint you will see the world’s hedge funds, pension funds, massive allocators of capital start to move tiny slivers of their money into things like Bitcoin and we’re talking tiny slivers of an 80 trillion dollar pie right it’s in real terms its enormous money in relative terms relative to what they have under management it’s a small amount but when you’re coming off a base where the whole markets only worth 300 billion it doesn’t take much to move the market. So that’s from the high level that’s why you must have some cryptocurrency. And then the next level beyond that is that mankind has never had an asset there’s never been an asset we’re a stronger man couldn’t take it from a weaker man. So whether it was the caveman knocking one guy over the head for his shells or the government coming in in Venezuela and confiscating money or the Argentinian government saying oh we’re having a holiday and taking all your assets from the bank something Brazil has done on multiple occasions. You know the everyday person has not had this ability to hold an asset that has been beyond the confiscationability of a government so something like Bitcoin and digital currency if you are smart and how you buy it if you don’t talk about it you buy quietly and you store it appropriately it is absolutely impossible short of somebody putting a literally putting a gun next to your head for them to take that asset from you and that is remarkable because even if you’ve got a million dollars in gold and you somehow manage to hide it how are you gonna travel the world with a million dollars in gold how are you gonna spend a million dollars in gold you just gonna go to the store and break a piece off with a piece of pliers you just can’t do that the beauty of digital currency is you can walk around with a thumb drive that big with a billion dollars in it and nobody knows and let’s say hey oh I don’t want to keep a billion in Bitcoin I want to do it in a stable coin fine put it in a stable coin. But this idea this portability of money and this complete ownership of an asset that nobody else has any ability to take from you that is valuable that is incredibly valuable.
Buck: So let me ask you a what may seem like a very basic simple question but I think it’s worth asking. So why is it so volatile why is Bitcoin Ethereum for example why these are the major the two biggest by market cap why are they so volatile and you know to the extent that they are uncorrelated do you see that as a function of the size of the market cap or is it something else inherent about digital currencies that makes it this volatile?
Teeka: I think it’s both. One they’re relatively small so if for instance if you look at Microsoft in its early days it was a crazy volatile stock up 40% down 40% down 30% going through bear markets that lasted two years wrecking billions of dollars in value you look at the early days of Microsoft from the 80s into the mid 90s the stock was all over the place and then as the stock got bigger and more mature of course volatility tamp down so you will see that. So what I say with volatility is that welcomed that volatility without it the opportunity to make enormous amounts of money off a small amount of money won’t exist. At some point Bitcoin and the theorem will move to this more blue chip status where maybe you make eight percent a year or six percent a year or something or something like that thank goodness we’re not there yet. The other side of it is is that there you know the markets that are built around trading these are completely unregulated. They’re wild. And there’s all types of crazy manipulation that goes on in the market you have some Bitcoin whale let’s sell a thousand coins and scare the market down and then let’s go buy back 2000 coins it’s the Wild West and somebody a skeptic might say well why do I want to buy now why don’t I buy when the market calms down because when you buy when the market calms down and it’s moved to this very highly regulated very low volatility asset it could have ten x between now and then. So yes there is volatility but I believe if you position size rationally you will be well rewarded for that moment for that volatility and that uncertainty.
Buck: So admittedly I was skeptical of cryptocurrency early on and you know I finally did get in and my timing was actually really good it was a fall early fall 2017 right before a massive bull run. And that of course was followed by what has been called crypto winter. So the question is, is winter over because it sure seems like it’s an awful long thawing period I mean no we seem like to have gotten there but there’s a stall is it over or do you still see some you know rocky shores ahead before there’s a you know big move potentially to all-time highs?
Teeka: Well no crypto winter was over in April. I put out a report talking about that and I pinpointed when that happened it happened when Bitcoin broke its downtrend line. So if you go back and if you look at each of the so-called crypto winters or horrible bear markets that have been in the space Bitcoin will always lead the market first always and then the altcoins play catch up right so it feels worse than it is right now because the alt coins got crushed and many of them have stayed crushed they haven’t come back that’s probably the most popular question I get take okay bitcoins up and it’s you know been up as much as 400 percent this year but why aren’t the old coins moving and my answer is because it’s not yet time. If you look back at the data generally there is at least a six-month time lag between the time Bitcoin breaks its downtrend line and the time that the alt coins move higher. So that that next stage we’ll be entering to in about October and you’ll see a percolation in the alt coins and they’ll start playing catch-up.
Buck: Does that also correlate Teeka with Bitcoin like an all-time high for Bitcoin though? I mean I mean obviously Bitcoin has recovered substantially we’re like you know three four hundred percent up from you know where we were when Bitcoin was at you know three thousand. The question I have is and I have not looked at this history closely even though there’s this recovery, do you have to start approaching all-time highs for those alts to really make their move is that what you’ve seen historically?
Teeka: No you look back when they all started playing catch up in 2016 Bitcoin was starting to move higher and then going into 2017 and then the alts really didn’t start kicking in until around May and that’s when they started moving and eventually the alts outpaced the type of action that was going on with bitcoins. So if we look back at how the altcoins move generally what happens is you have a new series of buyers that come into the market and they’re all centered around Bitcoin. And that’s happening right now. Kelly Lafleur just announced from backed that they’re gonna have physically backed futures have been approved September 23rd I believe is the date that they’re actually gonna start trading. So this brings in a whole new group of traders a whole new group of investors and then so they start getting their feet with Bitcoin and all of a sudden they’re there they might not even know anything about alt coins Buck that that’s the thing right for a lot of people out there to them when they think digital currency the only thing they really think of is Bitcoin.
Buck: So as the alt coins are just anything that’s not Bitcoin for anybody what we keep talking about so anything Ethereum, any other and any other token that’s not Bitcoin generally it’s called an altcoin.
Teeka: Right so as they come in they start getting exposed to these other coins and then they start playing with them and they start investing and then they start trading with them and all of a sudden people look at look at Bitcoin and they look at something else it’s a little bit smaller and they say okay let’s let’s play around here and then you start seeing this broadening of the rally.
Buck: So you think that this time around though specifically I know you you you’re part of your thesis is that this time around may be different because you know bigger money institutional money, but one of the things that we’ve really looked at or you’ve looked at and talked about is you know one of the limitations to big money coming into this stuff is custodianship but the altcoins a lot of the old coins most of them are not gonna have that kind of infrastructure so does that I mean just playing devil’s advocate does that then say well they may just stick to whatever they can buy on Coinbase and Bakkt.
Teeka: Well they have well these coins most of the all coins are ERC 20 coins so in terms of having the infrastructure as long as you can support ERC 20 you can support hundreds of coins that currently trade and so if you look at what Bakkt is doing they’re gonna be supporting Bitcoin first and then they’re going to be supporting Ethereum. So if they support a theory they will naturally support every other ERC20 that’s out there and remember companies like Bakkt they’re in the business of incentivizing trading because they get paid for everything that that goes through their network. So it would be odd to imagine that they’re only going to limit their entire business models with just the trading of Bitcoin it doesn’t make any sense. If you look at what they’ve done in the securities market they haven’t just limited themselves to the trading of the S&P 500 they trade everything so I do think that liquidity will trickle down into the whole market and of course the ERC 20 coins I think will be the first to get the most amount of liquidity because it will be the easiest to support from from a back end technology standpoint. The other thing I want to mention is that another driver of the alt coins would be what I believe will be a proliferation of securitization products. So ETF’s different types of futures I see a world I’ve gotta believe within the next 12 months we will see an ETF that will give us the ability to own 20 30 40 maybe 50 coins in one ETF that trades or one type of security that trades maybe it’s a coin put out by back and says okay you buy this coin and you’ve got the top hundred altcoins exposure to the top hundred alt coins.
Buck: Right and then you know I know a lot of people bring do you talk about the ETF for Bitcoin and this has been sort of bounce back but yeah you know we’re delayed with the SEC several times do you really think of that as a big deal compared to some of the other movements that you you mentioned Bakkt and I think there’s LedgerX things like that where that are allowing for institutional buyers to dissipate is an etf really make much of a difference in your view?
Teeka: I think an ETF is important but I think the SEC is becoming less important in that process and I’ll tell you why. Several very large brokerage firms from the Fidelity to eTrade to TD Ameritrade have announced that they want to offer Bitcoin trading to their users. So I’m talking about a system where you can log in click on a button on your Fidelity account and you can start trading Bitcoin the way you with the sp500. Once that comes out let’s assume it comes out this year which they’ve talked about but they want to do it this year but we’ll see everything seems to run a little slower than people think. But if that that comes out this year and something like 15 to 20 million people can now trade Bitcoin directly from their brokerage accounts to me it makes an ETF a foregone conclusion because the SEC has no reason now to stand in the way of it. And that’s what I’m think that they’re waiting for Buck the SEC is not known for blazing a trail the SEC is not known for moving ahead of the market. So if they can look and say well Fidelity is offering it TD Ameritrade is offering it Schwab is offering it we are asses covered if we approve an ETF I think it’s really a CYA problem with the SEC they don’t want to be the first to make this move and let’s say there’s a problem with it and everybody blames the SEC.
Buck: You know there is this product data that I know of maybe you could talk about this because then you know in the context of an ETF and being able to buy Bitcoin easily you know.
Teeka: I look at the there’s a grayscale Bitcoin trust gbtc which is publicly traded I mean what’s the difference what am I missing there I mean that’s a closed-end fund that has limited liquidity and sometimes trade at a hundred percent premium.
Buck: Yeah okay so lots of things happening in the spaces you mentioned and one of the things that I think that that you said that is very seems very clearly true whether or not what you know whether or not you believe there’s gonna be another bull market is there’s a ton of of Technology improvements and infrastructure and all these things that are going on and price mean a lot more by the way then back in 2017 when prices were off the charts so within that context what are you know say they the one or two things that are you most excited about in the space that gives you the greatest confidence that this is you know this is the the new you know the new dot-com era I guess after the rebels fell as you mentioned before offline and you know the rise of the Amazons and the apples in the crypto world.
Teeka: I’ll tell you why it’s because I’m finally seeing major corporations real corporations doing partnerships with crypto companies not memorandums of understanding MOU’s are meaningless but real partnerships where they’re actually using the technology this is stuff i talked about a year ago. Eighteen and a half months ago I said like real companies are going to start coming into this space they’re gonna start partnering with some of these companies and start using the technology and it’s happening. I’m seeing real businesses like Barclays put up their own money to back certain platforms I was like for instance with trade finance. BMW putting up their own money for back in logistics. So this is a huge shift in in in the type of person that is getting involved in the marketplace. I’m seeing massive credit card processors get involved with tiny startups because they want to piggy back what’s going on and the markets that they’re opening up with with their with their applications. So this to me Buck is is such a difference maker right like if we came into 2019 and none of these deals were happening I would say I would be on here and I would say buck you know what the cake just isn’t baked yet man we just probably gotta wait another year. But when I start seeing very large very smart corporate players making strategic moves to align themselves to certain projects, you can’t ignore that. This is something you can’t ignore. And so this is what has me incredibly excited for this next phase that I see taking place in crypto.
Buck: You know one of the one things that you mentioned earlier and you’ve mentioned in the past which I agree with generally speaking is that you know some level of regulation is a good thing so that it becomes less of a manipulated market. So it becomes something that you know larger big money investors and institutional investors take an interest in because they don’t want to be in something that’s you know that’s that’s not legit. There is a negative a little bit to that and that some opportunities out there are you know start or you’re starting to get restricted in terms of American investors. You know one of the examples I can think of to me is one of what I’m probably one of the biggest things is Binance which is you know the number one trading platform in the world is now effectively you know saying US investors we’ll see you later we’re gonna build something you know sometime and we’re gonna call it you know Binance US and we’re gonna have a lot fewer tokens there what concerns me is an investor in some of the various digital currencies at that point is well how does that affect my liquidity as a US investor and I’m wondering how it is affecting your your portfolio?
Teeka: Okay so there’s a couple of things around that and I can’t advise people to do this I can only report on what some people are doing to get around this geofencing. They’re using Virtual Private Networks. With the use of a virtual private network can get access to any exchange in the world so long as they’re using a VPN that mimics a country that this exchange is allowed to operate in. So as far as I know Binance is not doing anything to prevent anybody from using a VPN so just want to get that out there.
Buck: Jut to interrupt there I mean that that in itself is a little tricky though right I mean isn’t it because then you’ve got to deal with you know US taxes and all that if you’re dealing…
Teeka: Well you always have to deal with US taxes no matter what whether you’re using a VPN or not.
Buck: So it wouldn’t be illegal technically to use Virtual Private Network to use Binance?
Teeka: For me as an individual would I be breaking any laws, I don’t think so but I’m not an attorney. Binance might be breaking some laws or but I don’t think that I would be but again this is something everybody has to make their own decision with. But the other side of this is that by Nance is putting together their own decks which is a decentralized exchange which will allow for peer-to-peer trading and I think you’ll see more of these types of decentralized exchanges which I’m a big fan of I hate the idea of centralized exchanges anyway. So there are some speed problems with decentralized exchanges but they’re getting ironed out and I think within in the future a lot of trading is going to move to peer-to-peer but you’re right it’s certainly a concern for now I would say the biggest solution that I have read about and again I can’t formally tell people to do this is to use a virtual private network.
Buck: The other question though I think as just as a follow-up on that Teeka is that okay so say you use a VPN but not everybody’s gonna do that you know probably most people aren’t gonna do that didn’t then there’s an issues just in terms of liquidity right or don’t you think that’s a problem anymore?
Teeka: I do think it’s a problem but I also rely on the greed factor of the participants in this market that they will figure out a solution because there’s too much money to be made for liquidity that wants to come into the market somebody will find a way to bring that liquidity into that okay so anyway so like you you know I believe that Bitcoin bull run is inevitable what do you think of anything what are you looking for that might trigger and I know you you’re saying already that we’re kind of in a bull market already but what triggers that sort of next level all-time high thing is there anything or do you think this is something that’s gonna be more of a gradual rise or organic than it was in 2017?
Teeka: Well there are several things which I’m gonna be talking about specifically I don’t really want to spill the beans on that here but I have an event coming up which I talk in more detail about a very specific event that I think will act as a massive catalyst. Outside of that I think this whole idea of I call it this kind of new narrative right among institutions where before two years ago three years ago they looked at Bitcoin and they said oh my gosh Bitcoin that’s for Gun Runners and pornographers where we we have no interest in Bitcoin. And now they’re starting to see Bitcoin as a way to eliminate this correlation risk in their portfolio. So I think that narrative will gain more ground in fact I’ve been invited to a conference in San Moritz with 500 top-tier investors and I will be putting forward that research that I’ve drawn together to that audience and really helping propagate that narrative because it is transformational if you manage a large pool of capital what you can do with your overall volatility and how you can adjust it lower through just a tiny amount of Bitcoin is absolutely remarkable. So I think that’s more of a slow burn Buck, but as that gains speed I mean can you just imagine just the amount of buying if pension funds say okay going forward half of 1% of all our assets are going to be in digital currency.
Buck: I mean in part of part of understanding that for people is to understand one of the the great things about Bitcoin in particular is that this is an asset with that is fixed to a certain number of Bitcoin that’ll ever be created so you know we’ve never really had a that kind of monetary thing before I mean to a certain extent gold is that way of course but even you know gold there’s always more gold every year a little bit more gold. This is a truly deflationary asset that really where you know you put more money in the pot you know each one of those bitcoins gonna be worth a lot more and that I can’t think of anything else that’s out there like that.
Teeka: I agree.
Buck: I know you’ve got you know the the Palm Beach Confidential Newsletter Teeka I just have to compliment you because I you know I have been a reader for a couple years it is one of the most comprehensive and thoughtful investment newsletters I’ve ever subscribed to. I mean it is totally the real deal and I appreciate that and one of the things that people can’t join any time and it opens and closes and I know that it is going to be opening up and you’re going to do a webinar coming up on that but can you talk a little bit about the newsletter and the event that’s coming up?
Teeka: Yeah sure so in the newsletter what I do is I will typically find one idea each month and give you a complete breakdown on the idea. And what I try to do I understand not everybody is a cryptocurrency enthusiastic of their currency investor and so what I try to do is write in a way that is easy to digest, easy to understand, not simplistic but very easy for the layperson to get their head around and to really understand the concept that we’re talking about. And I have not opened up Palm Beach confidential for any new members for this whole year, this is the first time that I’ve done that and the reason is, is I only open up Palm Beach confidential to new members when there’s an event that I think can have a massive impact on the broad market. So on September 18th at 8 p.m. I’m going to talk about one of these events and the last time this event took place you could literally take 500 dollars and turn it into five million dollars. There’s only a few times in the history of crypto where you have those types of windows of opportunity and so one of those windows of opportunity is about to open and so at this event I’m gonna explain what it is why it works and why it will absolutely happen this particular event will absolutely happen there’s nothing that can stop the event from taking place. And so I’m gonna share my five top coins, one of which I’ll give away for free during the webinar that I think have that ability to go from five hundred dollars literally into five million. So it’s an exciting time and I’m really kind of chomping at the bit to kind of get in front of everybody and talk about this research that I’ve discovered.
Buck: One last thing I want to point out is I get you know when we talk like this sometimes people get really skeptical they’re like yeah that sounds a little salesy Buck that’s not really kind of the usual thing that you’re talking about and I get it right. The reality is this is a situation this isn’t you know there are real people out there there are kids out there who’ve become multimillionaires by doing exactly this. And so it’s real, that’s why I’m interested.
Teeka: In my own investing I’ve seen a thousand dollar investment go to as much as 1.6 million dollars, ok so it’s real. The other thing I want to convey to everybody I don’t have to write newsletters anymore I don’t have to come on podcast I can sit on a beach all I want ok. So why do I do this I do this because moving the needle on somebody’s net worth maybe not this audience maybe maybe my broader audience it’s incredibly gratifying right helping people change their lives without putting their current lifestyle at risk that’s I mean if that’s my one legacy in this life could you ask for anything more Buck? Really it’s incredibly gratifying to be able to do that and we have this opportunity now and but this opportunity won’t last forever at some point this will be a multi trillion dollar asset class and the ability to make gains like that just won’t exist.
Buck: Teeka, as always it’s been a pleasure talking to you and thanks again for being on Wealth Formula Podcast.
Teeka: Thank you Buck.
Buck: We’ll be right back.

2019.08.26 22:34 derkimster On This Date In California Weather History (August 26)

2017: A persistent large upper ridge centered over the Great Basin provided the Central Valley, Southern Sierra, and High Desert areas with an extended period of much warmer than normal temperatures between August 26 and September 3. High temperatures ranged mainly from 106 to 112 degrees at many locations each day between August 26 and September 3 across the San Joaquin Valley, the southern Sierra foothills and the Kern County Deserts while morning lows ranged from the mid 70's to the lower 80's.
2015: A monsoonal thunderstorm-generated flash flood led to a swift-water rescue operation at Highway 62 and Godwin Road in Wonder Valley east of Twentynine Palms.
2014: A large southerly swell from Hurricane Marie produced surf of 15 to 18 feet from Newport Beach to Huntington Beach from this day to 8/28. The Wedge at Newport Beach had sets of 25 to 30 feet. Coastal flooding occurred at Seal Beach on this day, and reached into some homes. South Laguna Beach reported major beach erosion.
2010: The combination of an approaching upper level disturbance that moved across Southern California and a moist and unstable air mass over the Mojave Desert and Southern Great Basin resulted in scattered showers and thunderstorms developing in the late morning on this date. In Barstow, dime-sized hail fell and lightning struck a house causing $2,000 in damage with reports elsewhere in town of water running across streets and depositing debris. Reports of 3-4 feet of mud washed onto Highway 395 13 miles south of Olancha at Dunmovin in Inyo County which closed the highway for the remainder of the day. A thunderstorm outflow boundary generated wind gusts to 60 mph in Amboy in San Bernardino County.
2010: Powerful thunderstorms hit Wrightwood and Warner Springs with heavy rain and flash floods. 1" diameter hail struck Sunshine Summit near Warner Springs.
A Severe thunderstorm developed near Hemet and moved southwest along the “Elsinore Convergence Zone” to Lake Elsinore. The storm produced marble size hail, heavy rain, and downburst winds that downed trees up to 2 feet in diameter.
2009: Intense drought helped the Station Fire start and expand rapidly in the Angeles National Forest north of Los Angeles. The fire proved difficult to contain, burning intensely through the middle of The massive Station Fire produced this impressive pyrocumulus cloud in 2009.September. It consumed 160,557 acres, 89 residences, killed 2 firefighters and cost more than $90 million dollars to fight on its way to becoming the 10th largest wildfire in modern California history and largest wildfire in L.A. County history.
2007: Remnants of Hurricane Dean produced thunderstorms and heavy rain all over the San Diego Metro area in the morning, then in the afternoon in the Anza Borrego Desert. In Escondido nearly 2" fell in less than 90 minutes in the morning. That afternoon, flash flooding occurred near Borrego Springs and Ocotillo Wells, rendering several roads impassable. Several park visitors were trapped near the Borrego Badlands.
2003: A flash flood from a stationary thunderstorm just south of Twentynine Palms swept a car off the road killing two people inside the car and a Good Samaritan who tried to rescue them.
2003: The Mariposa Lightning Series of fires were battled by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection starting on the 26th and contained by the afternoon of the 27th. There were three notable locations in this series: a fire of 77 acres was located in Catheys Valley; another of 640 acres at the Mariposa-Madera County line 13 miles SSW of Catheys Valley; and yet another of 100 acres at Road 200 and Fine Gold Creek Bridge. The cost to fight this series of fires was not reported but no fatalities occurred as the result.
2003: Another surge of monsoonal moisture from the remnants of Hurricane Ignacio brought thunderstorm activity to the deserts and higher terrain of Interior Central California. With east to southeast wind flow aloft, thunderstorms developed and moved over the Central and Southern San Joaquin Valley early on the morning of the 26th. Many lightning strikes again occurred. Infrequently occurring, the Central San Joaquin Valley began taking lightning strikes by 0200 PST and continuing heavily from Mariposa County south through Madera County and west to Merced County through 0430 PST. Additional lightning activity began in earnest on the west side of Fresno County at 0430 PST with a pocket of lightning activity in the Bakersfield Metropolitan area near dawn. Over 300 lightning strikes occurred in the 6-county area of Interior Central California from 0400 to 0500 PST alone. Merced County fire crews responded to over 14 lightning-caused fires on the Valley floor and resulted in loss of power to over 3,500 customers in the Merced/Atwater area.
2003: Measurable rain (0.04”) fell in Fresno. Only 18 Augusts have seen measurable rain fall in Fresno since the start of records in 1887.
2003: Thunderstorms developed in the mountains each day starting on 8.25 and ending on 8.27. Flooding closed Hwy. 38 in Big Bear City, roads near Guatay, routes S2 and S22 near Ranchita, Hwy. 78 east of Julian (from rock slides and mud slides) and streets in Borrego Springs and Campo.

2000: A strong dust devil spun through a demolition site in Yucca Valley, causing a roof collapse that injured 1 person.
1999: Gusty wind associated with a southwest-to-northeast outflow winds passed through Central California during the late afternoon hours of the 26th. Radar echoes were generally less than 40 dBz and minimal reports of any thunderstorm activity. These outflow winds from the "frontal" band caused damage from the Southern through the Central San Joaquin Valley with the hardest hit area around Kingsburg and Reedley in Southern Fresno County. Numerous trees and powerlines were downed, especially in the Kingsburg area.
About 5,000 power customers went without power until 2:00 AM in the morning. The peak wind speeds observed appeared to be around 33 MPH but it is felt there were higher gusts along the band. The peak wind at the Fresno Air Terminal occurred at 1727PDT with the damage in Kingsburg around 1640 PDT.

1993: Rain and thunderstorms developed from the remnants of Hurricane Hilary on 8.25 and ended on this day. 3"- 4" of rain fell in 2 hours from heavy thunderstorms in the San Bernardino Mountains, Morongo Valley, and Desert Hot Springs. Flash flooding occurred in Yucaipa and Morongo Valley.
1970: China Lake NAS ended a 47 day stretch with highs of 100° F or better, the longest such streak on record.
1970: Strong thunderstorms developed in the Inland Empire and over Mojave Desert. Flash flooding brought traffic to a halt and damaged several major highways. Lightning also started several small brush fires.
1968: Paso Robles reached an overnight low of 37° F, establishing a new record low for the month.
1951: A hurricane came ashore on the Baja peninsula southwest of Yuma, AZ, on 8.24. Over the next four days it dropped prodigious amounts of rain over parts of central Arizona causing widespread flooding damage. Damage in 1951 dollars exceeds $750,000. 1935: The remains of a tropical cyclone affected the region over a five-day period, with the remnant low making landfall near Point Conception on this day. Rainfall was widespread but not particularly heavy. Riverside reported the largest total with 2.04" over five days.
1924: Reno, NV recorded a high of 99° F.
1915: The remnants of a tropical cyclone moved northward across northern Baja California into the valleys, mountains and deserts of southern California. Julian reported 1.73" of rain while Riverside measured 1.01".
This occurred during the strong El Niño of 1914-15.

1893: San Jose had a low temperature of 39° F.

2019.08.20 03:29 corn_carter An excerpt from Jurassic Park

Third, the work is uncontrolled. No one supervises it. No federal laws regulate it. There is no coherent government policy, in America or anywhere else in the world. And because the products of biotechnology range from drugs to farm crops to artificial snow, an intelligent policy is difficult. But most disturbing is the fact that no watchdogs are found among scientists themselves. It is remarkable that nearly every scientist in genetics research is also engaged in the commerce of biotechnology. There are no detached observers. Everybody has a stake. The commercialization of molecular biology is the most stunning ethical event in the history of science, and it has happened with astonishing speed. For four hundred years since Galileo, science has always proceeded as a free and open inquiry into the workings of nature. Scientists have always ignored national boundaries, holding themselves above the transitory concerns of politics and even wars. Scientists have always rebelled against secrecy in research, and have even frowned on the idea of patenting their discoveries, seeing themselves as working to the benefit of all mankind. And for many generations, the discoveries of scientists did indeed have a peculiarly selfless quality. When, in 1953, two young researchers in England, James Watson and Francis Crick, deciphered the structure of DNA, their work was bailed as a triumph of the human spirit, of the centuries-old quest to understand the universe in a scientific way. It was confidently expected that their discovery would be selflessly extended to the greater benefit of mankind. Yet that did not happen. Thirty years later, nearly all of Watson and Crick's scientific colleagues were engaged in another sort of enterprise entirely. Research in molecular genetics had become a vast, multibillion dollar commercial undertaking, and its origins can be traced not to 1953 but to April 1976. That was the date of a now famous meeting, in which Robert Swanson, a venture capitalist, approached Herbert Boyer, a biochemist at the University of California. The two men agreed to found a commercial company to exploit Boyer's gene-splicing techniques. Their new company, Genentech, quickly became the largest and most successful of the genetic engineering start-ups. Suddenly it seemed as if everyone wanted to become rich. New companies were announced almost weekly, and scientists flocked to exploit genetic research. By 1986, at least 362 scientists, including 64 in the National Academy, sat on the advisory boards of biotech firms. The number of those who held equity positions or consultancies was several times greater. It is necessary to emphasize how significant this shift in attitude actually was. In the past, pure scientists took a snobbish view of business. They saw the pursuit of money as intellectually uninteresting, suited only to shopkeepers. And to do research for industry, even at the prestigious Bell or IBM labs, was only for those who couldn't get a university appointment. Thus the attitude of pure scientists was fundamentally critical toward the work of applied scientists, and to industry in general. Their long-standing antagonism kept university scientists free of contaminating industry ties, and whenever debate arose about technological matters, disinterested scientists were available to discuss the issues at the highest levels. But that is no longer true. There are very few molecular biologists and very few research institutions without commercial affiliations. The old days are gone. Genetic research continues, at a more furious pace than ever. But it is done in secret, and in haste, and for profit. In this commercial climate, it is probably inevitable that a company as ambitious as International Genetic Technologies, Inc., of Palo Alto, would arise. It is equally unsurprising that the genetic crisis it created should go unreported. After all, InGen's research was conducted in secret; the actual incident occurred in the most remote region of Central America; and fewer than twenty people were there to witness it. Of those, only a handful survived. Even at the end, when International Genetic Technologies filed for Chapter 11 protection in San Francisco Superior Court on October 5, 1989, the proceedings drew little press attention. It appeared so ordinary: InGen was the third small American bioengineering company to fail that year, and the seventh since 1986. Few court documents were made public, since the creditors were Japanese investment consortia, such as Hamaguri and Densaka, companies which traditionally shun publicity. To avoid unnecessary disclosure, Daniel Ross, of Cowan, Swain and Ross, counsel for InGen, also represented the Japanese investors. And the rather unusual petition of the vice consul of Costa Rica was heard behind closed doors. Thus it is not surprising that, within a month, the problems of InGen were quietly and amicably settled. Parties to that settlement, including the distinguished scientific board of advisers, signed a nondisclosure agreement, and none will speak about what happened-but many of the principal figures in the "InGen incident" are not signatories, and were willing to discuss the remarkable events leading up to those final two days in August 1989 on a remote island off the west coast of Costa Rica. JURASSIC PARK Prologue: The Bite of the Raptor The tropical rain fell in drenching sheets, hammering the corrugated roof of the clinic building, roaring down the metal gutters, splashing on the ground in a torrent. Roberta Carter sighed, and stared out the window. From the clinic, she could hardly see the beach or the ocean beyond, cloaked in low fog. This wasn't what she had expected when she had come to the fishing village of Bah¡a Anasco, on the west coast of Costa Rica, to spend two months as a visiting physician. Bobbie Carter had expected sun and relaxation, after two grueling years of residency in emergency medicine at Michael Reese in Chicago. She had been in Bah¡a Anasco now for three weeks. And it had rained every day. Everything else was fine. She liked the isolation of Bah¡a Anasco, and the friendliness of its people. Costa Rica had one of the twenty best medical systems in the world, and even in this remote coastal village, the clinic was well maintained, amply supplied. Her paramedic, Manuel Arag6n, was intelligent and well trained. Bobbie was able to practice a level of medicine equal to what she had practiced in Chicago. But the rain! The constant, unending rain!
Across the examining room, Manuel cocked his head. "Listen," he said. "Believe me, I hear it," Bobbie said. "No. Listen." And then she caught it, another sound blended with the rain, a deeper rumble that built and emerged until it was clear: the rhythmic thumping of a helicopter. She thought, They can't be flying in weather like this. But the sound built steadily, and then the helicopter burst low through the ocean fog and roared overhead, circled, and came back. She saw the helicopter swing back over the water, near the fishing boats, then case sideways to the rickety wooden dock, and back toward the beach. It was looking for a place to land. It was a big-bellied Sikorsky with a blue stripe on the side, with the words "InGen Construction." That was the name of the construction company building a new resort on one of the offshore islands. The resort was said to be spectacular, and very complicated; many of the local people were employed in the construction, which had been going on for more than two years. Bobbie could imagine it-one of those huge American resorts with swimming pools and tennis courts, where guests could play and drink their daiquiris without having any contact with the real life of the country. Bobbie wondered what was so urgent on that island that the helicopter would fly in this weather. Through the windshield she saw the pilot exhale in relief as the helicopter settled onto the wet sand of the beach. Uniformed men jumped out, and flung open the big side door. She heard frantic shouts in Spanish, and Manuel nudged her. They were calling for a doctor. Two black crewmen carried a limp body toward her, while a white man barked orders. The white man had a yellow slicker. Red hair appeared around the edges of his Mets baseball cap. "Is there a doctor here?" he called to her, as she ran up. "I'm Dr. Carter," she said. The rain fell in heavy drops, pounding her head and shoulders. The red-halted man frowned at her. She was wearing cut-off jeans and a tank top. She had a stethoscope over her shoulder, the bell already rusted from the salt air. "Ed Regis. We've got a very sick man here, doctor." "Then you better take him to San Jos‚," she said. San Jos‚ was the capital, just twenty minutes away by air. "We would, but we can't get over the mountains in this weather. You have to treat him here." Bobbie trotted alongside the injured man as they carried him to the clinic. He was a kid, no older than eighteen. Lifting away the blood-soaked shirt, she saw a big slashing rip along his shoulder, and another on the leg. "What happened to him?" "Construction accident," Ed shouted. "He fell. One of the backhoes ran over him." The kid was pale, shivering, unconscious. Manuel stood by the bright green door of the clinic, waving his arm. The men brought the body through and set it on the table in the center of the room. Manuel started an intravenous line, and Bobbie swung the light over the kid and bent to examine the wounds. Immediately she could see that it did not look good. The kid would almost certainly die. A big tearing laceration ran from his shoulder down his torso. At the edge of the wound, the flesh was shredded. At the center, the shoulder was dislocated, pale bones exposed. A second slash cut through the heavy muscles of the thigh, deep enough to reveal the pulse of the femoral artery below. Her first impression was that his leg had been ripped open. "Tell me again about this injury," she said. "I didn't see it," Ed said. "They say the backhoe dragged him." "Because it almost looks as if he was mauled," Bobbie Carter said, probing the wound. Like most emergency room physicians, she could remember in detail patients she had seen even years before. She had seen two maulings. One was a two-year-old child who had been attacked by a Rottweiler dog. The other was a drunken circus attendant who had had an encounter with a Bengal tiger. Both injuries were similar. There was a characteristic look to an animal attack.
"Mauled?" Ed said. "No, no. It was a backhoe, believe me." Ed licked his lips as he spoke. He was edgy, acting as if he had done something wrong. Bobbie wondered why. If they were using inexperienced local workmen on the resort construction, they must have accidents all the time. Manuel said, "Do you want lavage?" "Yes," she said. "After you block him." She bent lower, probed the wound with her fingertips. If an earth mover had rolled over him, dirt would be forced deep into the wound. But there wasn't any dirt, just a slippery, slimy foam. And the wound had a strange odor, a kind of rotten stench, a smell of death and decay. She had never smelled anything like it before. "How long ago did this happen?" "An hour." Again she noticed how tense Ed Regis was. He was one of those eager, nervous types. And he didn't look like a construction foreman. More like an executive. He was obviously out of his depth. Bobbie Carter turned back to the injuries. Somehow she didn't think she was seeing mechanical trauma. It just didn't look right. No soil contamination of the wound site, and no crush- injury component. Mechanical trauma of any sort-an auto injury, a factory accident-almost always had some component of crushing. But here there was none. Instead, the man's skin was shredded -ripped-across his shoulder, and again across his thigh. It really did look like a maul. On the other hand, most of the body was unmarked, which was unusual for an animal attack. She looked again at the head, the arms, the hands - The hands. She felt a chill when she looked at the kid's bands. There were short slashing cuts on both palms, and bruises on the wrists and forearms. She had worked in Chicago long enough to know what that meant. "All right," she said. "Wait outside." "Why?" Ed said, alarmed. He didn't like that. "Do you want me to help him, or not?" she said, and pushed him out the door and closed it on his face. She didn't know what was going on, but she didn't like it. Manuel hesitated. "I continue to wash?" "Yes," she said. She reached for her little Olympus point-and-shoot. She took several snapshots of the injury, shifting her light for a better view. It really did look like bites, she thought. Then the kid groaned, and she put her camera aside and bent toward him. His lips moved, his tongue thick. "Raptor," he said. "Lo sa raptor . . . " At those words, Manuel froze, stepped back in horror. "What does it mean?" Bobbie said. Manuel shook his head. "I do not know, doctor. 'Lo sa raptor'-no es espa¤ol " "No?" It sounded to her like Spanish. "Then please continue to wash him." "No, doctor." He wrinkled his nose. "Bad smell." And he crossed himself. Bobbie looked again at the slippery foam streaked across the wound. She touched it, rubbing it between her fingers. It seemed almost like saliva. . . . The injured boy's lips moved. "Raptor," he whispered. In a tone of horror, Manuel said, "It bit him." "What bit him?" "Raptor." "What's a raptor?" "It means hupia." Bobbie frowned. The Costa Ricans were not especially superstitious, but she had heard the hupia mentioned in the village before. They were said to be night ghosts, faceless vampires who kidnapped small children. According to the belief, the hupia had once lived in the mountains of Costa Rica, but now inhabited the islands offshore. Manuel was backing away, murmuring and crossing himself. "It is not normal, this smell," he said. "It is the hupia." Bobbie was about to order him back to work when the injured youth opened his eyes and sat straight up on the table. Manuel shrieked in terror. The injured boy moaned and twisted his head,
looking left and right with wide staring eyes, and then he explosively vomited blood. He went immediately into convulsions, his body vibrating, and Bobbie grabbed for him but he shuddered off the table onto the concrete floor. He vomited again. There was blood everywhere. Ed opened the door, saying, "What the hell's happening?" and when he saw the blood he turned away, his hand to his mouth. Bobbie was grabbing for a stick to put in the boy's clenched jaws, but even as she did it she knew it was hopeless, and with a final spastic jerk he relaxed and lay still. She bent to perform mouth-to-mouth, but Manuel grabbed her shoulder fiercely, pulling her back. "No," he said. "The hupia will cross over." "Manuel, for God's sake-" "No." He stared at her fiercely. "No. You do not understand these things." Bobbie looked at the body on the ground and realized that it didn't matter; there was no possibility of resuscitating him. Manuel called for the men, who came back into the room and took the body away. Ed appeared, wiping his mouth with the back of his hand, muttering, "I'm sure you did all you could," and then she watched as the men took the body away, back to the helicopter, and it lifted thunderously up into the sky. "It is better," Manuel said. Bobbie was thinking about the boy's hands. They had been covered with cuts and bruises, in the characteristic pattern of defense wounds. She was quite sure he had not died in a construction accident; he had been attacked, and he had held up his bands against his attacker. "Where is this island they've come from?" she asked. "In the ocean. Perhaps a hundred, hundred and twenty miles offshore," "Pretty far for a resort," she said. Manuel watched the helicopter. "I hope they never come back." Well, she thought, at least she had pictures. But when she turned back to the table, she saw that her camera was gone. The rain finally stopped later that night. Alone in the bedroom behind the clinic, Bobbie thumbed through her tattered paperback Spanish dictionary. The boy had said "raptor," and, despite Manuel's protests, she suspected it was a Spanish word. Sure enough, she found it in her dictionary. It meant "ravisher" or "abductor." That gave her pause. The sense of the word was suspiciously close to the meaning of hupia. Of course she did not believe in the superstition. And no ghost had cut those hands. What had the boy been trying to tell her? From the next room, she heard groans. One of the village women was in the first stage of labor, and Elena Morales, the local midwife, was attending her. Bobbie went into the clinic room and gestured to Elena to step outside for a moment. "Elena . . ." "S¡, doctor?" "Do you know what is a raptor?" Elena was gray-haired and sixty, a strong woman with a practical, no-nonsense air. In the night, beneath the stars, she frowned and said, "Raptor?" "Yes, You know this word?" " S¡." Elena nodded. "It means . . . a person who comes in the night and takes away a child." "A kidnapper?" "Yes." "A hupia?" Her whole manner changed. "Do not say this word, doctor." "Why not?" "Do not speak of hupia now," Elena said firmly, nodding her head toward the groans of the laboring woman. "It is not wise to say this word now. "But does a raptor bite and cut his victims?" "Bite and cut?" Elena said, puzzled. "No, doctor. Nothing like this. A raptor is a man who takes a new baby." She seemed irritated by the conversation, impatient to end it. Elena started back toward the clinic. "I will call to you when she is ready, doctor. I think one hour more, perhaps two."
Bobbie looked at the stars, and listened to the peaceful lapping of the surf at the shore. In the darkness she saw the shadows of the fishing boats anchored offshore. The whole scene was quiet, so normal, she felt foolish to be talking of vampires and kidnapped babies. Bobbie went back to her room, remembering again that Manuel had insisted it was not a Spanish word. Out of curiosity, she looked in the little English dictionary, and to her surprise she found the word there, too: raptor \ n [deriv. of L. raptor plunderer, fr. Raptus]: bird of prey.
