2023.03.28 20:17 arkie87 Getting Really Into The Science/Mechanics of DCS

I used to play flight sims back in the 90-2000's (all the Jane's games, DiD, etc...) back when I was younger. I got very into airplanes and flight sims, but the flight sims I played weren't as realistic as they care/can be now (I had but never got into Falcon 4.0), and let's be honest, I probably wouldn't have understood anything if they were super realistic.
Now, I am older, and decided to learn DCS. Started watching tutorials on youtube. In particular, tutorials on how radar works. As a Mechanical Engineer, I find all of this freakin awesome. It is so interesting to learn how these systems work e.g. how notching hides one from a doppler radar, but not with more modern post processing avionics etc... It is also cool how these physical systems produce interesting "game" mechanics that exist in real life.
That is all.

2023.03.23 16:51 Pill_Boi What the fuck is toptier?

I just unlocked my first top tier jet. (Phantom FGR2 at 11.3) 99.9% of games are 12.0 and I had one at 9.7 for some reason? Currently I only have aim9D so the only way I get missile kills is getting lucky with someone not looking around. And then I get killed by some pulse Doppler radar missile that got fired 10km away but that I can’t do anything against no matter what I do.
What is the point of grinding if this he’ll hole is what is at the end?

2023.03.21 09:59 Captainmanic how could the study of black holes lead to better chances of detecting enemy stealth bombers?

That's an interesting question. I don't know if there is a definitive answer, but I can try to explain some possible connections between black holes and stealth bombers.
Black holes are extremely dense objects that have such strong gravity that nothing, not even light, can escape from them³. However, black holes are not completely invisible. They can be detected by their effects on the surrounding matter and radiation⁷.
One of the methods to detect black holes is gravitational lensing⁶. This is when the gravity of a black hole bends space-time and the light coming from behind it. This creates a distorted image of the background objects that can be observed by telescopes. For example, a black hole can make a galaxy appear as a ring or an arc around it.
Another method to detect black holes is accretion disks and jets⁶. This is when the black hole attracts dust and gas from nearby space and forms a disk around it. The matter in the disk is heated up by friction and emits X-rays that can be detected by X-ray telescopes. Sometimes, some of the matter escapes from the disk and shoots out as jets of particles at high speeds.
A third method to detect black holes is stars orbiting black holes⁶. This is when a star is close enough to a black hole that it orbits around it. The star's motion can be measured by its Doppler shift or its gravitational waves. The Doppler shift is when the star's light changes color depending on whether it is moving towards or away from us. The gravitational waves are ripples in space-time caused by massive objects accelerating.
Now, how could these methods help with detecting enemy stealth bombers? Stealth bombers are designed to avoid detection by radar and other electromagnetic sensors by having special shapes and materials that absorb or scatter radio waves¹². However, they still have mass and gravity, which means they could potentially affect light and space-time around them.
One possibility is that stealth bombers could create gravitational lensing effects on the background stars or other objects. If we had sensitive enough telescopes that could observe these distortions, we might be able to locate them.
Another possibility is that stealth bombers could emit X-rays or other radiation due to their engines or weapons systems. If we had sensitive enough X-ray telescopes that could detect these emissions, we might be able to locate them.
A third possibility is that stealth bombers could create Doppler shifts or gravitational waves due to their motion through space. If we had sensitive enough instruments that could measure these changes in frequency or space-time, we might be able to locate them.
Of course, these possibilities are very speculative and depend on many factors such as distance, speed, size, shape, orientation, environment etc. It might also require very advanced technology that does not exist yet or is impractical for military purposes.
So I would say that studying black holes might give us some insights into how gravity affects light and space-time but it might not directly lead to better chances of detecting enemy stealth bombers.

2023.03.20 16:23 Jack12404 7 Round Mock Draft (w/ Explanations for each pick and trade + projected depth chart with draftees)

7 Round Mock Draft (w/ Explanations for each pick and trade + projected depth chart with draftees)


Something that Ran has clearly valued in his FA moves so far are athleticism and youth. With guys like Sean Murphy-Bunting, Azeez Al-Shaair, and Arden Key, they not only play with great athleticism but have many playing years ahead of them due to their age. These two factors influenced but not fully determined my picks in this mock.

Send: 1.11
Receive: 1.17, 2.49

Send: 2.49
Receive: 2.60, 3.92

At pick 1.11 and 2.49, I didn’t love any of the BPA in regards to our needs and we needed more picks, so I traded down with both picks (both had 75+% acceptance rates and were roughly equal to the value in the Jimmy Johnson draft pick value chart) to increase our asset pool.


1.17: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State- With Paris Johnson Jr. and Skoronski going off the board before pick 11 and many suitors for a trade down, I opted to pick up another premium day 2 pick while still getting my WR1 of this class. JSN provides a very skilled route-runner and separator with great agility to pair with Burks.

2.41: Joe Tippmann, C, Wisconsin- Although the coaches and FO seem to like Aaron Brewer, Tippmann fits much better as a Ben Jones replacement. Joe Tippmann, who is 6’ 6” 313 lb, has elite athleticism for his size and looks to be a long-term starter at center for years to come.

2.60: Blake Freeland, OT, BYU- The signing of Andre Dillard gives us a lot of flexibility in how we want to address the left side of the offensive line. Freeland is still pretty raw in his technique, but he moves extremely fluidly and well for being 6’ 8” and has among the highest athletic ability of any tackle in this class. He will need development, but with his age and having Dillard be able to take over as starter, Freeland will have plenty of time and not crucial pressure to immediately start.

3.72: Noah Sewell, LB, Oregon: This is probably my most questionable pick. Sewell had inconsistent tape and has a lot of work to do in his reaction timing and pass coverage technique, but his power, strength, and agility stand out significantly. With good coaching and development, Sewell would pair nicely with Al-ShaiiRice to lock down the LB core for the future.

3.92: Jonathan Mingo, WR, Ole Miss: Mingo is a very complete package when it comes to an outside receiver. He’s 6’ 2” 220 lb, ran a 4.46 40 yard dash with a 1.54 10 yard split, and he put up 22 reps on the bench to give him a 9.93 RAS score while being only 21 y/o. He was frequently played at TE due to his blocking ability, so he would be a great addition to the projected receiving core of Burks, JSN, NWI, and Philips.

5.148: Colby Wooden, EDGE, Auburn- Harold Landry and Arden Key project to be great edge rushers for the next few years, but you can’t have enough good edges. Wooden has nice potential and could be a solid rotational rusher with inside/outside versatility as he develops as a potential Autry replacement down the line.

6.185: DeWayne McBride, RB, UAB- I view McBride as a Hilliard replacement. He still needs to improve in the pass catching game, but he was good value at this draft position and would bring a more elusive running style to a room with Henry and Haskins.

7.229: Jake Moody, K, Michigan- Moody has elite leg strength, so getting a starting kicker was an easy option here.

Projected Depth Chart:
QB: Ryan Tannehill, Malik Willis
RB: Derrick Henry, Hassan Haskins, DeWayne McBride
WR: Treylon Burks, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Jonathan Mingo, NWI, Kyle Philips, Racey McMath
TE: Chigoziem Okonkwo, Kevin Radar
LT: Blake Freeland, Dillon Radunz
LG: Andre Dillard, Xavier Newman
C: Joe Tippmann, Aaron Brewer
RG: Daniel Brunskill, Jordan Roos
RT: Nicholas Petit-Frere, Andrew Rupcich

DL: Jeffery Simmons, Teair Tart, Denico Autry, Naquan Jones
EDGE: Harold Landry, Arden Key, Rashad Weaver, Colby Wooden
LB: Azeez Al-Shaair, Monty Rice, Noah Sewell, Chance Campbell, Jack Gibbens, Luke Gifford
CB: Kristian Fulton, Sean Murphy-Bunting, Roger McCreary, Tre Avery, Caleb Farley, Elijah Molden
S: Kevin Byard, Amani Hooker, Josh Thompson
K: Jake Moody

Avec des lasers d'une certaine fréquence et l'effet Doppler, des scientifiques ont réussi à immobiliser un atome jusqu’au milliardième de degré au-dessus du zéro absolu.
L'effet Doppler a également des applications dans l'astronomie. En observant les spectres lumineux des étoiles, les scientifiques peuvent déterminer si une étoile s'approche ou s'éloigne de la Terre. Cela peut aider à déterminer la vitesse à laquelle l'étoile se déplace ainsi que sa direction.
En médecine, l'effet Doppler est utilisé dans l'échographie pour mesurer le débit sanguin. Les ultrasons sont émis et reflétés par le sang en mouvement, créant un effet Doppler qui permet de mesurer la vitesse du sang dans les artères et les veines.
L'effet Doppler est également utilisé dans les radars de détection de vitesse, tels que les radars de contrôle de la circulation routière et les radars de contrôle de la vitesse des avions.
Enfin, l'effet Doppler a également été observé dans le domaine des ondes gravitationnelles, une prédiction de la théorie de la relativité générale d'Albert Einstein. Les ondes gravitationnelles sont des ondes qui se propagent à travers l'espace-temps et sont produites lors de collisions de corps massifs tels que des étoiles à neutrons ou des trous noirs en orbite l'un autour de l'autre. L'effet Doppler peut être utilisé pour détecter ces ondes en mesurant les variations de la fréquence de la lumière émise par les sources d'ondes gravitationnelles en mouvement.

2023.03.19 20:05 RapGamePterodactyl 2022 midterm hot takes revisited: how'd you do?

Thought it would be fun to revisit some hot takes posted here before the 2022 midterms and see how y'all did with your predictions. No shame if you missed the mark, just thought it would be interesting to see how attitudes were here before the actual elections.
Threads used for this:
Spot on:
That most in this thread, are actually engaging in Republican hopium and Nov just isn't gonna go to their best of dreams, or what was in 2021. You can talk platitudes about this or that, how "Fetterman is just x", or X is overated. But sometimes there's a little more backing up those claims then what is actually being witnessed in the environment and electorate. Fetterman might be overrated, if he still didn't maintain an error-proof polling lead, and wasn't packing events, leaving people outside and unable to get in(happened today).
theboyonthetrain calls out the Fetterman doubters and gets validated by his big win.
Republicans are doing amazing in deep blue states. Swing states not so much
Big_Size_2519 gets the dynamics of 2022 correct. Dem underperformances in deep blue states, GOP underperformances in swing states.
Pretty good:
Cuomo scandal, a potential for a divided primary between Hochul, deBlasio, Williams, and Suozzi. A lot of us are also concerned with taxes, covid restrictions, and some of the crime laws here. Could end up as a surprise 9-14pt win.
epicnoober1233 gets NY gov pretty close way back in Jan 2022. Almost spot on except they actually underestimated how close the margin would be.
Control of the house will be determined by under 7 seats
Taprman612 gets pretty close, although not that hot of a take.
There’s a decent chance that Hawaii Governor is likely blue (like D+14)
Zeldin had around a 20% chance of winning New York
Tim Ryan has a better chance at winning Ohio than Don Bolduc has at winning New Hampshire
Although not competitive at all; Brad Little’s margin in Idaho will be 5 to 8% lower than the typical Republican as Ammon Bundy will take 5 to 8% of the vote
Mandela Barnes has a better chance of flipping the Wisconsin Senate seat than Tim Michels has at flipping the Wisconsin Governorship
Way off on Hawaii, but Zeldin did pretty well (although 20% chance was an overstatement), Ryan outperformed Bolduc, Ammon Bundy got 17%, and Barnes got much closer than Michels. Pretty good Kamchatka1905.
Mine is that Adam Laxalt will lose by 2%. He lost by 4% in his last election.
BigHorse1972 was right on result, about 1% off on margin.
Washington: I don't think Washington's senate seat will flip, Patty's approval is still over disapproval and will probably at worst be a 3% margin of difference.
Colorado: I would say the Colorado senate seat and House races are all very vulnerable, with the Senate seat could be decided within 5, even 3 points. I could also see 1-2 Dem CO seats flipping b/c of a more heavy Biden-sceptic voter population there than in Washington.
California: I think many LA area House seats in California are vulnerable and GOP can probably pick up from 2 to even 7, depending how much abortion or inflation might play. I think either the Comptroller or the other finance-related seat will be very close and could be picked up by the GOP in a 51-48 kinda race
Minnesota: At least 1 seat will probably flip, both state legislatures will probably go GOP and I think the Governors race will be decided in a lean margin, perhaps closer to 1 than 4 especially with a strong 3rd party. Could even be a flip if the third party PLUS a very weak Walz performance blows Dems up.
Maryland: I think Dems could end up fighting tooth and nail for the governors' race even if Hogan isn't on the ballot. Similar conditions to 2014 when MD elected a GOP governor and perhaps financially-oriented dem voters will either stay home or vote for the GOP candidate. I don't think it's flippable entirely for now, but definitely can end up being within 1-5%.
New York: I think Chuck Schumer will not win more than 60-62%, especially if Dems direct Senate inaction to him (which he ~55-65% deserves). It could end up being 57-38. Governor wise I think Hochul will still end up finding difficulties against Zeldin even if he's a Trump-nominee. Probably the flopping gun regulation laws and growing N/S NY divide will have her win by closer, if not less than 15%. I can definitely see her only winning ~3-4 counties above the NYC area.
Too GOP-optimistic for WA/CO/MN/MD. GOP did do better than expected in CA and NY, with Schumer actually getting 57% as predicted. Deleted user (shame shame).
My hot take is that the republicans will still win. I think the house will be very close but I think the senate will go democratic. I don’t think Tim Ryan will win at all, at best he loses by 9 points. Marco Rubio’s election won’t be cakewalk but it won’t be as narrow as polls show. I think Alaska was a fluke and that in November it’ll flip back Republican although I hope I get proven wrong on this one. Also I think Grassley will win by a smaller margin than usual, it will still be a landslide tho.
House/Senate predictions correct, but Rubio's election was indeed a cakewalk and Alaska wasn't a fluke RealJimyCarter.
I think Florida is gonna be very close, under 3% for both governor and senate.
On the flip side I feel the New York governor race is gonna be under 15. I don’t think Houchle or whatever is very strong
Horrible misses for FL, spot on for NY. Deleted user though.
Wisconsin won't be above 1.5% either way in either race.
New Mexico has a higher chance to be likely blue than to flip red.
Betsy Johnson will win more Republicans than Democrats. If you actually look at her political positions, she's pretty conservative.
Illinois and New York aren't going to have competitive governor races. Period.
North Carolina will be closer than New Hampshire.
Kentucky will vote to the left of Indiana.
But for my real core-of-the-sun take, DeSantis won't win by more than 5 points.
WI, NY, KY/IN, and FL takes were wrong. NM, IL, NC were pretty good. Mixed marks Doc_ET.
Ryan will loose by 10.5%
kingllama10 has the right result, but Ryan only lost by 7%.
1) Polarization will make Mastriano and Dixon do much better than expected. I think Shapiro and Whitmer will win by like 2-3% rather than the likely margins some are expecting. Remember PA is a state Biden won by 1.2% and MI by 3%. For these states to be likely D, Shapiro and Whitmer would either have to flip some Trump voters or GOP turnout would have to decrease significantly.
2) Kemp will push Walker over the edge and Walker will narrowly lead the first round over Warnock, but Warnock will scrape by in the runoff by a very slim margin.
3) Ohio Senate will be Likely R, but Vance will slightly underperform Trump. The polls suggested Ohio would be near even in 2020 and Trump still won by 8.
4) Pennsylvania Senate will be decided by a tilt margin and could go either way
5) McMullin will lose by at least 15. Trump won Utah by 21 points in 2020, and I can't see that many Trump voters flipping for McMullin. McMullin couldn't even beat out Hillary in 2016.
6) Oregon governor will go Democrat regardless, and Washington Senate will not be competitive
ncpolitics1994 got Georgia almost right (Warnock wins in runoff but by a decent margin and leads in first round), Ohio Senate pretty spot on, and Oregon/Washington correct. Massive whiff on both Pennsylvania races and MI-GOV, smaller miss on Utah.
1.) Both Brian Kemp and Raphael Warnock will manage to narrowly avoid runoff's (more likely Kemp but I think (and hope) both will).
2.) Adam Laxalt and Joe Lombardo will win Nevada by around 1-1.5%. Additionally a Republican will manage to win one of the lean d Nevada house races (likely district 3).
3.) Mark Kelly will win by 2-3% while Kari Lake will win by 1-.5%.
4.) Laura Kelly and Tina Kotek will manage to win their closely contested governor races in Kansas and Oregon.
5.) John Fetterman will win in Pennsylvania by between 1-3 %. Thus securing a technical Democrat majority in the senate (50-50) although effectively allowing Sinema and Manchin to continue being the Kingmakers in Washington.
6.) Ron Johnson and Tim Michels will win close races in Wisconsin. Personally I have a hard time seeing Johnson and Evers win considering how similar the polls have looked in the state. (Let me know if y'all agree)
Awkward_Concern8027 was pretty close. Misses were Lake, Michels, and Laxalt. But got a lot of winners correct and was decently close on margins.
Mark Ronchetti will win.
Gretchen Whitmer will win by a similar margin as she did in 2018.
Ohio won't be very competitive and JD Vance will come very close to matching Trump's performance.
nhdtx gets MI and OH pretty close but big miss on NM.
Thinking Wisconsin or North Carolina or Florida go blue is coping. Same with Ohio.
Republicans will win the House with at least 240 seats.
Drazan has a good shot at Oregon.
Right about WI/NC/FL/OH but WI was close enough that a Dem prediction wasn't really coping. Drazan had a shot but lost, and way off on House numbers.
Oopsie woopsie I made a fucky wucky:
Nevada will probably be within 10
Idaho will be safe R
Fetterman might not actually win by 400 points
Florida won’t be safe R
John Kerry probably won’t win a write in campaign in Arkansas
leafbou tried to make a meme post but still didn't predict Rubio and Desantis winning by safe margins.
Wisconsin Senate will vote to the right of Ohio senate
Betsy Johnson beats both Drazan and Kotek
Nope and nope Tribal-Goofy95.
Shapiro isn't a lock to beat Mastriano. Pennsylvania is a Biden +1.2 state, and Biden's approval has collapsed since then. The anti-Biden energy and national environment will likely make this race extremely close, and I think it will be within 2 points.
This is going to be a very close one, and it's Shapiro's race to lose. And arguably, he's the stronger part of the Democrat ticket in PA. Fetterman is a progressive, in a year that is bad for Democrats and worse for progressives in a swing state. His last statewide race was on Tom Wolffe's coattails in a blue wave year. Supposedly he has a lot of appeal to the white, rural working class, but thus far he's completely untested in that regard. Pwning Oz for living in New Jersey will not be enough.
Big oof ncpolitics1994 and TheAngryObserver. Turns out it was not a very close one.
Not enough people are paying attention to AK-Gov. It has the potential to be very close with Bill Walker running again.
Doc_ET predicts a close race, but Dunleavy wins before the runoff with Walker finishing in third.
Fettermans gonna lose
No context, just making this sub mad that a career politician that looks cool will lose
He’s literally just a progressive who last won in 2018, which doesn’t prove much. This sub keeps saying “he has the wholesome wwc appeal!!!” But never explain why he has it. I currently have it as tilt R, but it’ll be really close.
Shamefully deleted user and Different-Trainer-21 did not believe in the Fetterman hype.
I think Warnock is gonna lose to Walker.
Another deleted user. Shame!
DeSantis will win by like 3-4 points. People act like he’s some sort of electoral juggernaut when in reality he struggled to win back in 2018 besides the fact that Desantis isn’t really THAT popular outside of Daytona.
Nope RealJimyCarter.
Barnes will win by 1% and im going to get slaughtered for this but dems win 219 in the house
I wish progout1.
John Fetterman is very overrated. I don’t know where this Fetterman hype train came from, but he is just the average basement dweller Bernie bro. Assuming he does win, he’ll probably just lose in 2028.
Uncut_Pasta1 thinks Fetterman is overrated, but he ends up winning by 5% in an open senate seat in a swing state. We can revisit the second part of this in 2028.
Yeah, Laxalt lost by 4 in a blue wave year where Dems won the Generic Ballot by 8.6%. The fact that Nevada only shifted left by 1.6% instead of 6.5% (the amount the NPV shifted to the left) in a big blue wave tells me that he is actually a really strong candidate.
Anyway, one of my hot takes is Kari Lake wins by 3 and Oz wins narrowly, although that last one is subject to change.
ThatBeatleFanatic misses every single result here. Tony Snell type of numbers.
Mandela Barnes will win and progressives will do great
Sorry ctnfpiognm :(
Ohio will vote to the right of Florida and Arizona will vote to the right of Nevada.
Oopsie TheAngryObserver.
Mastriano outruns Oz
I can see why this person deleted their account.
I have a bad feeling that DeSantis will lose given that he might have gone too right, too soon.
DeSantis has introduce a bill to ban Professional-Dot6472 from Florida for excessive wokeness.
People think “Vermont is strong democratic state in national elections so it has to be on the state level”
That’s wrong, in a year trump lost by 36% Scott Milne only lost by 7.2%
And he’s running for the senate against Peter Welch, so he definitely has a small small chance, he’s came close to governor in 2014 losing by 2k votes, and even did good against a popular leahy in 2016
While he will still lose, I have him at 21% loss, it’s not gonna be a huge win for dems
Welch won by 40% and that dude didn't run.
Arizona Senate will be lean Republican. Kelly has lost the most in polling among suburban voters out of any of the "competitive" senate races and Arizona is naturally a conservative-tinted state. Kelly has a 95% Biden voting record and Mark Brnovich is a very good nominee and Blake Masters is a decent nominee. With it being a Democrat midterm with Joe Biden being decently deep in approval and not really bringing anything to Arizonans (more so suit to Kelly than Biden), it doesn't look good.
SunBeltPolitics whiffed on sun belt politics. Masters was a pretty bad candidate and Kelly won comfortably.
One I think Masters will be a stronger option compared to Brnovich, the wave year will naturally sway Maricopa suburbs back towards the GOP, the real question is getting the base to turnout and Masters will be stronger in that regard
downnice also likes Blake Masters.
So I was reading this Politico piece from earlier this week about how Washington Senator Patty Murray's already spending over $1M in her reelection campaign against Washington state Senator Tiffany Smiley who seems to be a great candidate, as well as the Democrats'(failed) attempt to elevate election deniers in Colorado. That to me indicates that they are seriously worried about those races and I was just thinking about what races in blue states that may be competitive are flying under the radar because of the state's electoral history.
That article definitely got my attention because following the money is the easiest way to see which states the respective party apparati are concerned about. If they're worried about Washington and it ends up being competitive, there is a much better likelihood Republicans can get to the 54-56 range. It'll be a heavier lift to win that race and I don't see it likely because of its partisan and ideological lean but there are usually 1 or 2 surprises every wave year so it's not out of the question.
AustisticHistoryLover thinks something is brewing for Tiffany Smiley.
MN Gov: Tim Walz is definitely a favorite, although I could see this race getting closer
CT Gov: from what I’ve seen Stafanowski has moderated since 2018, and gubernatorial races in this state are always close for whatever reason
OH Senate: JD Vance has essentially stopped campaigning, and Tim Ryan has good ads
CO Senate: Mark Udall was seen as a heavy favorite to win re-election back in early 2013, but he ended up losing in 2014 to Cory Gardner as the wave grew in size. I could potentially see the same thing happening to Michael Bennet, although the chance of that happening is very small
RyanAKA2Late misses in both directions here, as none of these races were super competitive.
Random states that could potentially become competitive:
Missouri Senate - Greitens + strong third party performance could cause a tight race
Oklahoma Governor - not the most popular governor in a generally competitive seat
Ohio Senate - strong campaigning by Ryan could cause this to become tighter than we expect
Minnesota Governor - depends on size of wave + third party performance
Florida Governor - weird fucking state, very pro-choice, tends to not follow wave years
I doubt these flip, but they’re just ideas.
DoAFlip22, not to be outdone, also misses every race.

2023.03.18 20:44 SouthParkiscool I've been traveling to alternate realities for six years. Help me. (Part 2)

Part 1
Okay so… a lot has happened.
After I left the restaurant, I had a nice calm early night walk back to my house. I didn't notice anything different or off on my way back. I didn't feel that anyone was following or watching. When I got back inside my home, I looked out the living room window. I watched for any sign that someone had followed me. No cars pulled up. Not one person walked by. I assumed I was in the clear.
When I got back into my room, I went back to my usual business. Moments after I settled back into my routine, I heard a knock on the door. When I answered it, I saw a man who looked just like me.
"Hey," she asked. "How are you doing?"
"I'm good, how are you?" I asked.
"I'm great. I'm here because… I know you," she said. "I don't know if you'll believe me, but I'm you from a different universe. Of course, I can't just say that without evidence."
She pointed a small white device at the wall beside her, then she pressed a big button. A bright white ripple opened on the wall. She pressed the button again, then the ripple folded up until it vanished.
I was surprised, but also excited. This person could jump realities as well.
"Yeah, I can do that too," I said.
"Oh… yeah? That's cool," she said, sounding slightly sarcastic. I didn't mind as I used to exaggerate my voice to make up for an irrational worry I had of coming off as insincere. "I've always wanted to actually talk to myself from an alternate reality. I've been ignoring all of them just to focus on the details of their realities. Can I come in?"
He sounded quite happy to see me. I recalled the mess with the first alternate self I spoke to. This alternate self didn't seem so bad, promising enough.
I let her in. She stepped into the room and looked around. She then told me the room wasn't so different from her room in her home reality, which she told me was one where the Moon was half its size compared to what it was here. She then told me she brought a couple friends along.
"You might find them familiar," she continued.
I wasn't too sure who to expect, but I didn't think it would be anyone I was super familiar with. She gestured at the door. Two people, a guy and a girl with blond hair who looked to be in their early 20s, walked into the room. Looking back, I can, to my displeasure, say they were familiar. I don't want to get into who they were. It's hard to process. We greeted each other, then the guy looked at my device.
"You travel to different realities too?" The guy with blond hair asked with enthusiasm.
"Yeah," I said, smiling. "I've done it a lot. It's very fun and very interesting."
"Can I look at the device you use to travel?" he asked.
"It's probably not so different from the one she uses," I said, gesturing to my alternate self.
"We wanna see it," the girl said. "Come on. Maybe it's cool in its own design."
I pulled the device out of my pocket and handed it to the guy with blond hair. He grabbed it and looked it over with wide eyes. The girl leaned in towards it and looked at it as well. Once he was done looking at it, he handed it over to my alternate self, who then gave me a smirk. She looked at both her friends.
"Do it," she said.
Both her friends walked up to me and grabbed me by the shoulders. They held me up against the wall and stood by my sides while my alternate self walked over to me.
"I've been chasing after you for three years," she said. Her smile was gone. Her facial expression turned to one of determination.
"Wait…" I muttered.
"You're a thief," she said. "You took my device and fled what I had planned for you. You need to be put away for a while."
It was her. I did take her device and I for sure fled to another reality with it, but I had to.
"You wanted to frame me for no reason," I said. "I still don't completely understand why."
"You don't need to know why," she said.
"Leave me alone," I said. "You could be in any other reality right now," I said.
"I don't want another reality," she said. "I want my home reality."
"Couldn't you just go back there right now?" I asked.
She chuckled. "You have no idea, do you? My home reality was ravaged by a disease called Encephalitis Lethargica. It was a big deal in the 1920s, then it returned in 2020 and messed everything up."
"I think I-i've heard of that before," I said, attempting to stall the conversation.
"It went under the radar in your realities and, like, never returned," she said. "As I said, in my reality, it returned and now I can't risk going back."
"How big of a deal was it?"
"It was huge," she said. "People fell into sleep-like catatonic states that lasted weeks. Many times they lasted months. Sometimes they lasted up to a year. I avoided catching it and got out of there."
"How did you even get back there at all?" I asked.
"In my home reality, society knew the locations of a bunch of slips that would lead you to different realities," she said. "But they were shielded off by the government in case people tried to enter them and ended up in some dangerous chaotic place. Most of the public never knew exactly where those slips led, but they knew the locations of them. When you ditched me in your reality, I looked for ways to get into one of them. Once I found a way, I went through a whole bunch of slips until I found a reality advanced enough for multiversal travel. That was back in 2019. I got my hands on a device, then I went on my long journey to find you, using my home reality as a base until the virus came. Is that enough information for you?"
"I bet you got hit in the face with inevitability when traveling to all those realities," I said.
"I ended up in a whole bunch of different places," she said. "Yes, I realized just how inevitable certain things can be, even if some details are different."
"How did you find out which reality I was in?" I asked.
"I jumped to every reality I assumed you'd visit," she said. "Even those random TV and movie related ones. I'm you, and while I'm embarrassed to be you, at least being you left a trail for me to follow."
She stepped towards me, wide eyed and chuckling like a hungry psycho.
"The Bubonic Plague hit 500 years later, nuclear winter in the 90s, it's the year 2090 or 3005 or 1998… whatever," she said. "I traveled to over 3000 realities, Nicole. 3000. My brain hurts. I don't feel like I exist anymore, and worst of all, I can't process my feelings very well. I don't want to get to the rest. You probably know what I mean about processing feelings. I'll just skip to the point."
She pointed her device towards me and pressed the big button. With her left hand, she took a small remote out of her left pocket. It was light brown and had a similar design to the reality jumping device she was holding in her right hand. She threw the device towards the blond guy. It landed on the floor, right in front of him.
"Crush it," alternate me said. "I don't need that limited crap."
I looked at the device and watched as the blond guy stomped on it with his right foot. He stomped on it again and again and again until it splintered into a dozen pieces. I could see the chips, which snapped and were pressed against a shiny white disk as the guy stomped again and again some more. He stopped. Now there's only one reality jumping device, and my crazed alternate self of all people has to be the one to have it for some reason.
"You two," alternate me said, gesturing towards her friends. "Send her in."
Her friends let go of me.
"Where are you sending me?" I asked.
"A place where you won't die immediately," she said. "So you can be in constant fear of dying."
My alternate self's friends pushed me backwards. My view of them and everything else was obscured by the white light. A second later, the light disappeared. I was sitting on the floor in my room. My alternate self and her friends were gone. I stood up and glanced around. Nobody was in the room.
Where did she send me? What did she mean by constant fear of dying?
I peeked out the window, assuming I'd see what my alternate self was talking about. The sky was cloudy and it was kinda dark considering it was around 7 PM… but that was it.
I stepped into the living room. No one was in there. I checked every room. Nobody. I was alone.
It began to sink in that she took my reality jumping device before pushing me into a different reality. Whatever was going on here, I wouldn't be able to escape it like I was able to escape feral humans, invasive machines, wild animals, and nuclear war. My heart sank.
I was hesitant to check the news. What was I going to see? What was I going to… experience?
I went to pull my phone out of my pocket, only to remember I had set it down on my bed before I got up to answer the door for my alternate self. My phone was still in my home reality.
I walked back up to my room and meditated while waiting for a sign of what was going to happen to me. When I got to my room, I looked out the window again. Still nothing. No one was outside. I hadn't heard a single car drive by while I was looking for people around the house. I sat down on my bed, shaking.
I wanted to believe my alternate self was kidding. Did she say she was sending me to a dangerous reality just to scare me? It's not something I'd do at my worst. She was mad at me though… and she was a version of me, and I remember how insecure I was back when I began to traverse to different realities. She sent me somewhere… but where?
At some point, I decided checking the news would be better than not being prepared. Hopefully, the disaster or whatever it could be is something I could prepare for and protect myself against.
I walked into the living room and switched the TV on. The channel that came on was CNN.
"...they reported a black chemical substance being sprayed in the distance. This flood of refugees from the northeastern China anti-communication bubble…"
"...these attacks have been going on for seven days now. The world is still shocked. We're without a doubt feeling a little more shocked each day at this point…"
"...So far, the confirmed death toll currently sits at around 85,900,000, but it's evident the actual death toll may be a lot higher…"
My heart sank further hearing those things, even without knowing exactly what caused them. I listened for more information.
Aside from the fact it was apparently August 2022 in this reality, not March 2023, this is what I learned from the news reporters, mostly through their recaps of the event as it had gone on so far.
On August 8th, a giant creature appeared in a small Canadian suburb named Sharon. It destroyed dozens of buildings and laid waste to the elementary school there. Luckily, no one was in it at the time, but many were still in their houses of course. They showed the giant on TV while recapping this. It was chilling to the bone. It had a reptile-like body with a dozen long appendages close to its head. Its head was made up of 5 upside down black pyramids stacked on top of each other. I had never seen anything like it before. I was overwhelmed with dread. Their monstrous appearance and size, the amount of destruction it could do if it wanted to… were chilling.
Afterwards, two more giants appeared in Newmarket. They attacked the entirety of its Main Street from north to south, along with a southern portion of the town. Those two then went to Aurora, where they torched the central part of the town, turning it into a pile of ash, burnt rubble, and dead trees. The two appeared in Burlington a couple hours later, where they demolished the Burlington Skyway Bridge and blew up some nearby factories. Videos of each of these events were shown during the recap. The two giants were bigger than the Sharon one, but just as chilling in appearance. The two looked identical to each other, but one had a slightly larger head than the other, along with dozens of white tentacles coming off of its head.
A few hours after that, northeastern China was hit with a so-called Anti-Communication Bubble, or EMP Bubble as the general public has been calling it, which fried every electronic device in the area. Electronics brought into the area would be fried as well, mysteriously enough. Even military vehicles were fried, despite them being able to withstand a catastrophic EMP. The worst part of it is, according to satellite images, a couple groups of giants gassed half of the cities and towns within the bubble with an unknown black chemical substance. The most chilling part is the witness accounts from refugees.
English translation: "I saw people running up the hill, just running for their lives, then a black dust covered them. It was a light dust. It was part of a chemical spray or something that these beings were spraying. I saw those people choke and fall to the ground. Luckily the wind wasn't blowing in my direction."
English translation: "Four gigantic beings were spraying something everywhere. I was far away from it, but I was told it killed things. I asked, what things? People? Animals? They told me it killed everything."
Anti-Communication Bubbles were then placed on Japan, North Korea, Moscow, and Toronto respectively within the following midnight, 1 AM, and 2 AM hours.
The attacks seemed coordinated, due to how specific they were. The reporters acknowledged that too. It seemed like the creatures were after specific people more so than important places, with China being an exception. The reporter mentioned the giants could be showing force by building up their destruction over time… Attacking in small amounts, then gradually larger amounts. On August 9th, the CIA and NSA buildings were destroyed one by one in under a minute. At that point, it was clear these things knew what they were doing. But their goal still wasn't clear. They attacked North Korea and Canada, so they weren't discriminating based on government type.
It was also mentioned Chechen and Iran were wiped off the map, an additional Anti-Communication Bubble was placed on Waterloo, Ontario specifically, despite the place not having any strategic importance (unless the theory the giants are building up their terror is true,) along with an attack on Central Manhattan as well that reportedly killed about 200,000 people.
If it didn't seem like just about anywhere could be hit, on August 12th, rural areas of Florida, Texas, Georgia, and Arizona were hit with Anti-Communication Bubbles. Two giants gassed each and every town within said bubbles. Urban Michigan was hit as well. Refugees who were in basements at the time of the gassing mentioned animals and people laying all over the place, people being dead in their cars, and Detroit being a practical ghost town. On August 13th, Wisconsin became the victim of the same attack.
I found it weird that they hit rural areas rather than the cities, aside from only Detroit of all places, New York, and DC, but as I let it sink in, I began to speculate… were they targeting specific people? if they were, was I one of them? I was told I wouldn't immediately die, but that's kinda vague. Alternate me was right about the fear though… the giant creatures could attack anywhere at any time… Do I leave the house in case it's attacked? Or will I be killed if I leave the house? I was frozen, shaking, and staring at the news. It was as if I was new to this alternate reality stuff. I really didn't want to be in this place.
A deep pit of hopeless dread filled my stomach. I had to sit down. I needed to catch my breath. Once I did, I stared at the news for another few hours before remembering the thing alternate me said about slips to different realities. I thought, maybe, I could find one and it would take me out of this terrifying place. But I had to be cautious. Those realities could be just as, if not more, dangerous than this one. Alternate me did mention inevitability, and this was a reality far from most neighboring realities I've been to. Going through slips might take me to more realities with giants than not… but that's just speculation. Willing to try anything to get out of here, I left the house, going out into the uncertain near-darkness of night, and walked down the road.
I had no idea where to look. I needed to find a slip, but it was ruthless. I was too scared to not look. There had to be one somewhere. I walked down multiple backroads, then east down Holland street. I felt like a conspiracy theorist.
After an hour of being east of the town, I needed to take a break. I sat down on the dirt and watched cars roll by. Their headlights illuminated the road as I thought about whether or not a giant creature was about to pop out of nowhere and torch or gass the place I was in.
Where might I be safe? It doesn't seem like there's a safe place anywhere. I could've made my life longer or shorter by walking outside. I was frozen, not knowing what to do or where to go.
"Nicole?" a familiar voice asked.
I looked to my right. A man who looked to be in his 40s was walking up to me. It was my Dad's friend, William.
"What are you doing all the way out here?" he asked.
"I'm… panicking," I stuttered. "I don't know where to go or what I'm doing… I don't know if I'm… going to… get hurt or not."
William asked me where my parents were. Realizing I didn't know what they would've done in the first week of the attacks, I told him I had no idea, and that I didn't feel safe in town. William offered for me to stay with him down in Niagara. I took the offer and he took me to his car, which was parked only meters away.
Am I going to be able to fall asleep tonight? All that anxiousness has been keeping me up. If I fall asleep, it won't be for long. I'll probably feel anxious in my dreams too.
The drive was smoother than I expected. It was mostly through forests and farmland until we got to a town named Lincoln at about 6 AM. Based on the music and news that played on the radio the entire way there, things didn't seem so different from our reality prior to the attacks. William told me he's been glued to his phone and the news since the attacks heated up.
When we got to the next town, which looked more like a small city, there were only like five streets I saw cars on. Most of the roads were empty.
When we got to the house, I climbed out of the car and followed William inside. I crashed on the couch and stared at the news, waiting for updates on the ongoing attacks.
There weren't any attacks anywhere that day, so things were pretty smooth. I was hoping it meant the attacks were over, but William didn't think so. The longer he sat beside me, the more he opened up.
"We don't know what these things are," he said. "We don't know where they came from… They could be planning anything. We don't know how long it will go on for. Where will they hit next? They've hit urban areas, suburban areas, rural areas… they could h-hit anywhere."
He was chill. Though his face alternated between being more or less flushed. He gave a thousand yard stare. He kept muttering to himself, asking himself what was happening. If any of it were even real. I had traveled to the most basic realities you could think of. One where the Cuban Missile Crisis turned into a third world war, the one where World War 3 was a current event in 2017, and one where Gray Goo Nanobots were eating up the world to the point no part of society could function.
While you may have seen these things play out before in movies or on TV, I was actually there. There is a certain terrifying edge to it. It was real. Real world physics applied. When I saw physics doing their thing, the weight of the situation crushed me even more. Yes, I could just leave, but I saw people in terrible conditions. Bloodied, beaten, scattered remains, incinerated dust. That stuff will haunt me forever as I WAS THERE. It was still weird to go back to a reality where everything was normal. Not just because of the chilling sights, but the fact apocalyptic things were happening in certain realities while things were just fine in others.
This reality was no different. While I witnessed bone chilling monstrosities in other realities, the ones in this reality were different. They were their own things. I decided to go surf the web to find out how different the alternate reality was.
Everything was the same. The wars that happened in this alternate reality played out the same way the ones in our own reality did. The disease outbreaks, the empires, the technological advances, the historical figures were all the same as well. It was weird. There was nothing I could find that clearly led up to the Giant Attacks, as they were dubbed. The giants came from someplace that had no clear effect on the history of the world at all. It was chilling to think one could be going about their day to day life, then some giant monstrosities just… pop up and attack.
One confusing thing was their plan. What was it? They attacked very specific areas. They first appeared in a tiny Canadian town nobody knows. Then they attack certain towns to the south, then they jump to darkening a chunk of China, THEN they jump down to attacking cities like Toronto or New York. While it seemed like they were hitting certain areas for strategic value, they were also hitting very specific areas. Was that part of the plan? Making an impression by attacking every walk of life makes sense, but is that really what they're doing? It was all theories… assumptions… It was unsettling to not know what they were going to do next.
The rest of the day was peaceful, aside from the anxious tension in the air. That night, I was thinking about where the safest places would be. It's not like they've attacked every place in the world, but what if they did? I wondered. I couldn't tell whether or not I was catastrophizing. Rural areas were off limits, suburban areas were off limits, cities were definitely off limits. Maybe mountains? Or very desolate areas? I thought. The stress kept me up for a good portion of the night.
The next morning, I awoke to the sound of the TV at a high volume. It sounded like the newscasters. They were saying something about a giant having attacked Afghanistan.
"It looked like the first one. The one that attacked Sharon and Beijing, a-and a few other places…"
"The attack lasted around an hour before the giant vanished…"
"I keep hoping they stop but they just keep going…"
As I woke up, I paid more attention to the news. When I got into the living room, I took a look at the TV. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. What was so important to the giant monstrosities?
As I got breakfast for myself, I couldn't help but peek at the TV for updates. They replayed footage from the attacks in Afghanistan, Serbia, Central Manhattan, and nearby in Toronto. The giant in Afghanistan smashed its way through the streets, killing more people than it destroyed buildings. The giant in Serbia and Central Manhattan were regular with their terrorist acts, but the giant in Toronto was filmed by helicopters miles away because of the EMP Bubble. Watching it still gave me chills, as the creature was pretty big and was about the height of the CN Tower.
I watched as it took down the business buildings behind the Rogers center, leaving plumes of smoke behind, then it stopped moving once it got to the west side of the CN Tower. It pushed the tower eastward, breaking it up into multiple pieces due to sheer force. The pieces of the tower fell to the ground, with the observation center landing on what I assumed was the Pwc building, creating a huge plume of smoke. More smoke rose from the neighboring buildings as pieces of the tower obliterated on impact with them.
I barely felt exhausted at this point. Gittery, anxious, and dread ridden were more like it. My alternate self brought me here to die. Although, I held out at least some hope that I could survive. But I couldn't shake the theory that he knew exactly where he sent me. He knew what was going to happen… or he at least had some idea. I needed to get out of here.
"Trying to think about how things were before feels weird," he said. "Everything looked so innocent."
Even though I had jumped right into the middle of this, I too felt that way. Even though it wasn't on the same scale, it was still quite bad. I conjured up something to say. I made it vague so as to not sound crazy.
"Y-yeah, it did," I said. "Even here… I don't know."
The feeling carried the rest of the day. Luckily, there were no huge developments. At one point, the newscasters openly expressed hope the attacks were done. It seemed that way by that night, then throughout the next morning. Both of which were calmer, despite the shock persisting.
At around 3 or 4 PM, he sat down on the couch, shaking. He had a terrified hopeless look in his eyes.
"There's another development," he said.
He picked up the remote.
I stepped into the living room. The first thing I did was look at the TV. As the volume went up, I stepped a bit closer to the TV.
"This is an image of a giant who appeared in Staten Island moments ago…" the reporter said.
They showed an image of the giant. It looked a lot like the others with the metallic looking bodies and dark pyramids.
"I thought they were done. We had a day of peace. It seemed like they were done, b-but… I mean, yeah, it's a miniature attack, but they're still here," the other reporter said.
It was a small attack. Specific to one place in Staten Island. It made me wonder what they were doing? Was it the giants saying they're still around? I found it weird they would only attack one specific spot. It wasn't so nerve wracking in itself, but it still reeked of a statement that they aren't done yet.
At about 5:30 PM, I got my answer. I was sitting beside William, eyes glued to the news when a report about an invisible force stopping people from driving in and out of an area of Niagara Region. My heart sank as I heard the initial report. They replayed traffic cam footage of cars driving down Queen Elizabeth Way slamming into nothing. The driver flung through his windshield. Other videos from other areas along the outskirts of the region were played, showing people driving into the invisible force, proving there's some sort of barrier around the outskirts of the region.
"Why us?" he asked. "They're going to do something to us?"
What were they going to do? Where were they going to hit? The invisible force was new based on all I had heard so far. I paced around with a knot in my stomach, not knowing what to do or where to go.
About a half an hour into thinking, loud booms echoed from somewhere in the distance outside. They were kinda rhythmic. They gave me chills. William opened the door and looked outside. While the door was open, I could hear multiple dogs barking. The booming noises got progressively louder as the moments went on. About ten minutes in, William spoke.
"Dear god…" he said. "Get your stuff. We're getting out of here."
"Where can we go since there's an invisible wall?" I asked.
"Anywhere the giants aren't," William said.
The things in the kitchen began to shake. I stepped outside. Spotting the car, I sprinted towards it. When I reached the door, I glanced at the source of the loud booms. In the distance was a giant moving across the horizon. It felt 10 times more colossal than it looked in photos and videos. I swung the passenger door open and climbed into the seat. A moment later, William ran out of the house. He put all his stuff in my lap and climbed into the driver's seat. He shook as he put the key into the ignition. He rushed the car backwards, turned it in the opposite direction, then he sped down the road.
As we navigated through the streets, I peeked out of the passenger side window. The giant was out of view, but people running out of their homes caught my attention. I stared out the front window. The booming noises pierced my ears as we sped down the road. But something else caught my attention. Something in the sky. I looked up at it to find it was a fighter jet. It flew out of view faster than I noticed it.
"We just need to get to Queen Elizabeth Way," William said. "Then we get off the highway and go to my friend's house in Caledonia."
It made sense. That town was in the middle of rural farmland. Though I felt as if it would be as likely to be attacked as ever considering the attacks began in some random tiny suburb.
My heart sank when I saw piles of rubble where the Queen Elizabeth highway was supposed to be. William steered the car left. We drove, searching for a way on. One of the streets led right up to it. We drove up it but the spot where the overpass was was a pile of rubble as well.
Loud booms were coming from the southeast and southwest. My heart was racing faster than we were able to move.
"We're screwed," William said. "There's a river to our left and right, a lake to our north and an invisible wall to our south."
The booms stopped. However, something popped up in the corner of my eye. I glanced to my right. Two giants were standing in the distance. Again… a lot more colossal than they looked in photos. Both of them were holding white-bag looking things. I wanted to look away, but I couldn't. I had to know what they were doing. It came at the cost of staring at chilling things. Things that could give me nightmares for years. After a minute or so of watching them, they both turned their bags upside down, letting a black substance pour out. It was like rain. The initial rain lasted a few seconds. When it ended, I was confused, and shivering. What was it? I needed to hear the news, so I turned the radio on.
"... a dark substance was just poured onto the city. It's unclear what it is from up here. It appears to be spreading… across the city. They look like tiny dots from up here… and it looks like there are hundreds of them. They're running down all of the roads…" the reporter said.
I made eye contact with William again. He turned the car around, then he sped down the road.
It sounded like an easy task to drive away, but we kept running into dead ends. According to William the city we were in was surrounded by a river. He hoped there would still be a bridge to cross to get away from whatever the giants poured onto the ground. The first bridge we drove up to was gone. My heart sank a bit, but I hoped that there was one bridge that was still intact. My heart sank further as I realized the giants likely destroyed every single bridge going in and out of the city. I figured it more so when we got to the next bridge, which was gone as well. The sight was horrific. A couple of cars at the bottom of the river, along with three people floating by. Drifting down the river. Their bodies being swept by the water.
It didn't help that we had the news on the radio playing.
"We're getting more details about the things running down streets all over the city. What we can see are animalistic creatures with long tentacles. The creatures are grabbing people with their tentacles, smashing through glass windows, and grabbing people through their windshields.
Live video footage taken by civilians and ground reporters who were reporting live on scene when the creatures were dumped have shown these horrific sights up close. These people were able to catch some footage of the creatures running around, but as soon as they caught one of the creatures attacking somebody with its tentacles, they ran. But seconds after they began to run, a creature could be seen swarming them. They fell to the ground. In the cases of live news reporting specifically, sometimes the reporter's camera fell to the ground and captured footage of a tentacle sucking on one of their legs. In other cases, the reporter could be seen being grabbed by all of the creature's tentacles at a time. One tentacle to the forehead, one tentacle to the heart… in every case, the reporter struggled and screamed."
The pit of dread in my stomach deepened to the point where I felt like puking. These creatures weren't dumped too far away from where we were earlier. This was insane.
William eventually drove onto a pathway surrounded by trees.
"A pathway?" I asked, confused. "Make sure you don't run people over."
"These parks are closed due to the attacks," William said. "But yes. I won't hit anybody. We just need to get away from this place. Every second counts here."
We drove for about 15 minutes in total by the time we got to the only land bridge. It didn't look very public, but the gate was open and alarms were going off. I couldn't see anybody around. William drove through the gate, then he drove along the pathway until reaching a road.
As we continued driving west, it was reported the invisible wall had been lifted. Creatures that got close to the outskirts of the region kept turning away. I was relieved for a good number of minutes until it was reported two giants had appeared in Bradford.
"Two giants have appeared in Bradford and are creating chaos…"
"A third giant has appeared in Bradford. It appears the giant is helping the other two attack the town, but it is carrying out its part of the attack in the northern part of the town…"
"A fourth giant has begun to destroy buildings in Bradford…"
"Social media is speculating why Bradford is an important target to the giants…"
Well… I'm glad I left that place… and if it didn't already seem like the giants could attack just about anywhere…
I had goosebumps.
At around 7:45 PM, we made it to William's friend's house. When we pulled into the driveway, the framed door swung open and a man ran out towards us. He looked about 40. William got out of the car. I followed and watched as William and Jason hugged each other. "I broke my phone, I couldn't call you," Jason cried. "I thought I was watching you die live on the news."
"I'm glad I made it here at all," William said. "All the bridges were out. I brought a friend along with me."
I waved at Jason as he and I locked eyes. We both said hi to each other, then we went inside.
"Shit is crazy out there," Jason said as we stepped into the living room. "I don't know if I'm supposed to leave or stay here."
"Where would we even go?" William said. He stopped himself from saying another word… three times. It was clear he didn't know what to say. I didn't know either. My adrenaline was rushing too much for me to think clearly.
There was a knock at the door. Jason stood up and went up to the door.
"Who could it be at this point?" he whispered out loud.
Hopefully it was some sort of emergency team…
"Nicole," he said. "It's for you."
I stepped up to the door. I didn't know her name, and I didn't care to ask, but I knew her. She was the girl my alternate self arrived with earlier.
"Meet me outside right now," she said, slamming her hands against the door frame.
My heart dropped. I told William she must be confusing me for someone else, then I stepped outside and shut the door behind me.
"Follow me," she said, sternly. "Real Nicole and Iann are here. We want to talk to you."
My heart began to pound as I followed her around to the side of the house. My alternate self and his two friends were standing still with stern looks on their faces.
"How's your stay been?" alternate me asked.
"I think you should bring me somewhere safe," I said. "I could actually die here. Are you actually serious about wanting me to die?"
"That's the point," alternate me said. "Did you hear the news about Bradford? Crushed to bits… I thought that would've given you a hint."
"Please," I said. "I'm sorry. Just let me go."
Alternate me chuckled. The blond woman and man exchanged looks while smiling at each other.
"You are staying here and you will get the hell over it," alternate me said.
"Can I at least message my original people and say goodbye?" I asked.
"Okay but only because you're saying goodbye," alternate me said. alternate me took out her portal device and pointed it beside me before pressing a button, opening the bright white portal. "These two are going to come with you. They'll make sure you don't run off, so don't try anything. They have guns. They won't be afraid to threaten you or pepper spray you if you don't follow."
The two blonds pulled handguns out of their pockets. My heart sank at the idea of being guarded like a prisoner. I stepped into the portal and noticed I was at the same location. I walked up to the sidewalk, hoping if I was going to be shot or pepper sprayed, somebody would see it. I glanced behind me. The two blonds stood beside the house. Their guns were only partially hanging out of their pockets. No one on the street would notice. They pulled out their phones, looking down at their screens, then back up at me for a few seconds. When somebody walked by, they looked back down at their screens.
I decided to use the time I got to type all this up. Yes, I am going to text my friends and family, tell them I loved them. But that will be after I hit submit. I don't know what the hell to do right now. If I type for too long, that man and woman will drag me back to hell. That's where I'm going after this anyway… so whatever. At least I had typed most of this stuff up in my notes before my alternate self arrived at Jason's house.
What the hell do I do?

2023.03.16 20:02 AlphaSalmon Mig-29 Radar IFF Bug/ Skill Issue?

Hello! I have been running into an issue lately in sim battles where my Mig-29 radar will incorrectly ID aircraft as friendly.
I have had this happen in 3 different instances. I'm approaching a dogfight with 2 aircraft: 1 hostile, and 1 friendly. I can see on my radar both aircraft, one bricked as a friendly. I lock up the hostile one, and not trusting my radar, I lock and unlock periodically checking to make sure my radar hasn't turned him into a friendly, and launch an R27ER1 about 1-2 miles out. My missile hits the correct target I locked... ...and it is a teamkill. Looking down at my radar, the enemy I did not kill is still tagged on my radar as a friendly and I can't lock him, but once I merge, he turns to a hostile and I can finally lock him up.
Is this a bug, or what the heck am I doing wrong with my radar that my targets get flip flopped? This sucks because even if I could correctly recognize that the targets are flipped, in this instance I would not be able to intervene with a correctly launched R27ER1, as I can't lock on someone my radar thinks is a friend.
1) My IFF is working, but it reverses who is friendly and who is hostile.
2)The friendlies I TKed were all Mig23s, so I know they have IFF on board as well.
3) I am using SRC PD mode to IFF, not TWS, and not SRCIR. The Mig29 from what I can gather does not have a non pulse doppler SRC mode, and I know SRC PD mode can IFF.
4) I understand that having an STT does not return any IFF data, and I have to switch back to SRC to update IFF.

2023.03.14 16:25 AmazingCorn21 Radar Sensor to measure distance

I have looked everywhere, tried to find exactly what I was looking for, but I am reaching out here because Reddit seems to be where everybody can put their minds together to help someone out. And, this is the biggest subreddit. If anyone knows where I should ask this question, let me know.
I have an enclosed Arduino system where a radar sensor (24GHz, 60GHz, does not really matter) needs to measure the distance to the liquid outside of the case, facing down. The system needs to be enclosed to be protected from the water in the tank in case the water splashes. The case is made from plastic (to keep it simple) and for the sake of prototyping I don't want to buy a sensor of 200 euros (if I have to I can justify it).
All I can find are doppler radar sensors, which detect presence, like the presence detection or fall detection from Seeed Studio or the module from Grove. I found the A111 breakoutboard from Sparkfun, but I want to see if I can save myself 70 euros + 20 euros in shipping.
An ultrasonic sensor won't work (I think), because sound can't travel through the case. ToF, or light based measurements, also won't work (I think) because the case isn't see through. I have ordered a waterproof ultrasonic sensor, just in case.
Does anyone know any way that you can modify a doppler radar sensor to where it measures the distance and doesn't give out a signal for presence? I have the IPM-165 with the amplifier, but that gives out an analog read based on the adjustable resistor on the amplifier board.
And otherwise if I can't modify a doppler radar sensor, does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can use? I guess I can't see the bigger picture anymore because of the radar rabbit hole I jumped into a few days ago. My goal is to get the distance to the liquid in the tank , or time between when the signal was send and when it was received.

2023.03.13 15:15 Medvyikk When to use AIM-7E, when to use AIM-9P

Hello! i'm planning on buying the F-4EJ ADTW ( don't say it's bad, i know very well that it's bad but i want to grind japan without it taking me 20 years ) and i've been doing some research on how to use radar, how to properly use said radar, what kind of tactics to use with the lack of a Pulse Doppler, but there's 1 thing i'm still not 100% aware of
what range should i use AIM-9P, and when should i switch to 7E?
the highest range of the 7E on the wiki is 25 lock range 50 launch range but those are usually the stats in absolutely perfect conditions.
tldr : what range should i use AIM-9P and when should i switch to AIM-7E?

2023.03.12 04:43 YungYodie F-4S Pulse Doppler tips?

Got the F-4S the other day and I’ve been having an absolute blast with it. Was just wandering what’s up with the PD? I’m not new to jets by any means but I’ve never had a PD Radar. Whenever I try to use it, I successfully lock, and fire the missile, but then it just fucks off into the ground or keeps switching between random people if its a furball while I’m still fully locked on the original guy. Is there something I’m doing wrong or is that just how Pulse Doppler is?

2023.03.10 22:37 MorningLightMount IFF Radar

Is there ever a scenario where the phantom radar would show friendly as an enemy in SRC? I know Pulse Doppler doesn’t have IFF, but I have gotten several TKs recently because of this.
A couple of times I thought I might have forgotten to switch out of PD, so I started double checking before locking and sending a missile, and it still is happening. Am I missing something on how IFF works in SRC mode?
Also since the update there have been a couple of times where my sparrows won’t fire after having a radar lock. Is this a bug? I’ll have to press the fire button 5-6 times before getting it to launch sometimes and other times if fires on the first press.

2023.03.09 21:53 fierylady 3 round mock w/explanations and trades

I did this as if Rodgers went to the Jets (for a 2024 4th rounder and 2025 2nd rounder that can become a 1st) and Lamar to the Raiders (despite their denials). Also McGlinchey to the Bears seems pertinent. I didn't describe the in-draft trades to save space, so I hope they're obvious.
(1) Carolina Panthers (From Chicago): Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida - Yeah I’m not buying all those reports coming out of the combine that they’re lukewarm on Richardson. Feels a little too timely, pointed and matter-of-fact. Nah, I say they nab a vet like Brissett or Bridgewater, keep Darnold while they blood AR. Reich made Carson Wentz look like a legitimate MVP candidate (in Philly at least), I think he’ll jump at the chance to develop Richardson.
(2) Houston Texans: C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State - No one’s had a better two months than Stroud, from his performance against Georgia to his throwing at the combine. He’s been the biggest winner to me so far (we all knew Richardson was gonna test like a freak).
(3) Arizona Cardinals: Will Anderson, EDGE, Alabama - Easy pick.
(4) Indianapolis Colts: Will Levis, QB, Kentucky - I just can’t envistion a world where a guy like Ballard drafts a guy like Young. Not unless Irsay forces him to (which yeah, is in the realm of possibility). Everyone says Steichen is gonna be all over Richardson and I agree, he’s probably interested, but if so he’s probably interested in Levis for a lot of the same reasons. Levis isn’t the athlete Richardson is (who is?), but he’s at least as good as Daniel Jones or Josh Allen. Given he also worked with Justin Herbert and Phil Rivers, I think Steichen can work wonders with Levis.
(5) Seattle Seahawks (From Denver): Jalen Carter, iDL, Georgia - Seattle more so than a lot of other teams doesn’t have a problem drafting players with character concerns. They drafted Malik McDowell in the 2nd knowing full well he was a head case, Bruce Irvin had been arrested for burglary, carrying a concealed weapon, and destruction of property before ever turning pro, and Frank Clark had been dismissed from Michigan after a domestic violence charge. Granted they’ve backed off since the McDowell miss but the other two worked out, and Carter’s red flags aren’t the bad person kind as much as they are the immature and stupid kind. I could easily see them talking themselves into it, Carter’s a major fit on their roster.
(6) Detroit Lions (From LA Rams): Bryce Young, QB, Alabama - I think Detroit would love to trade out of this spot but the since the Raiders, who would have picked next, have added Lamar Jackson in this exercise and since the Ravens will convince everyone they're going with Huntley for at least a year, I think they’ll find it difficult. So rather than take a position of greater need they say fuck it and go BPA. I was advocating for them to do this back in 2020 when Miami and the Chargers both called Detroit’s bluff and they took Okudah rather than Tua or Herbert. They should have taken one of the QBs and either held one of those teams hostage, or just kept the QB. But the FO was in win-now mode and they chickenshitted out. The current FO has no such problems. Let the bidding begin, or keep the QB.
(7) Baltimore Ravens (From Las Vegas): Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech - Pretty much pure BPA but also adding pieces to the DL has never been something the Ravens have shied away from.
(8) Atlanta Falcons: Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia - I would like to mock them a larger edge defender to line up across from Ebiketie and/or Carter but I don’t think they’ll be able to resist the local coach’s dream with a get-off almost a tenth of a second faster than Micah Parsons or Von Miller. They’ll figure out a way to make it work.
(9) Chicago Bears (From Carolina): Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson - To me the Bears approach should be to hoard as much talent as possible, almost regardless of position. Yeah they need help along the OL but it’s much worse on the DL IMO (especially after bringing in McGlinchey), and to me Murphy is a level above the OL in the class. Skoronski’s close, but as I see him as guard only I’m going with positional value here as well.
(10) Pittsburgh Steelers (From Philadelphia): Peter Skoronski, iOL, Northwestern - So I had the Bears pass on him but the Steelers pounce. Partly because the Steelers are closer to contending and only have a few glaring holes to fill, but also because their FO has traditionally shown they don’t put much stock in positional value (Najee, Devin Bush, Pouncey, Minkah via trade). Now granted Khan might be different from Colbert, but he came up under him. Until I see otherwise, I expect he’ll show a lot of the same tendencies.
(11) Tennessee Titans: Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State - No reason to belabor this one, right? Pretty much everyone mocks them a tackle.
(12) Houston Texans (From Cleveland): Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State - I know he’s a little superfluous with Metchie but now that they’ve drafted Stroud he makes a lot more sense. The two made magic together in Columbus and while JSN has been typecast as slot only, I’m not sure that’s exactly true. He’s big enough to hang outside unlike a lot of other slot receivers, and Justin Jefferson had the same issues coming out. I don’t expect JSN to run as fast as him but you never know, that Ohio State track is blazing. Plus Metchie is a complete unknown coming off the illness, it’s shouldn’t stop Houston from adding what I think is one of the two or three highest-floor players in the class.
(13) New York Jets: Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia - He’s moving on up, I wouldn’t be completely shocked if he surpassed Johnson Jr. as OT1 (or Skoronski, if you still consider him a tackle). The Jets have to keep throwing resources at OL until they fix it.
(14) New England Patriots: Dawand Jones, OT, Ohio State - Of all of the outrageously oversized tackles to come around the past few years (Becton, Trent Brown, Orlando Brown, Ma’afala), I think Jones is the best of the bunch. It looks awkward sometimes but he really understands what works best for his body and what scenarios to avoid. This is a little early compared to most mocks but this is the Pats we’re talking about, they’ve never cared about what we think. It’s why they’re so hard to mock for. But they’ve shown an ability to work with guys like this from all their years with Trent Brown, who I don’t expect to be back.
(15) Green Bay Packers: Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia - Now that he’s tested into the tier Gutekunst typically picks from, I can’t imagine them not utterly loving him. They’ve held on to Marcedes Lewis for years now for his blocking ability, and Washington is like the cyborg version of Lewis. Plus with Tonyan a FA and Deguara more of a FB than TE, they could really stand to add bodies to the room.
(16) Washington Commanders: Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon - A little later than most have the first CB coming off the board but that’s how the board fell. Lucky Commanders.
(17) Philadelphia Eagles (from Pittsburgh): Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas - I know Eagles fans are gonna hammer me for this one, there’s no way Howie goes RB in the 1st. I don’t know about that. There’s this nugget I read in an article, I forget where, that had the scuttlebutt being he wouldn’t take one at 10 but after a trade down where he added more picks he might be amenable. He took a NT in the 1st last year, another low-value position, and now we’re getting those reports where Sirianni prefers more of a bell cow back. Plus Bijan and Hurts would be devastating together. I’m not saying it’ll happen for sure, but I think Howie will give serious consideration to it, especially after a trade down.
(18) Detroit Lions: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State - I know Lions fans probably prefer Witherspoon but I just don’t think he’s gonna meet Brad’s athletic and size thresholds. Or if he does he’s gonna come much closer to missing them than Porter Jr., who checked in with a 9.62 RAS. Plus he played and thrived against much better competition. And that length! Aaron Glenn’s gonna love that length.
(19) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois - It looks like the Bucs are gonna lose a few players from their defensive backfield and Licht has always been a proponent of the “you can never have too many DBs” ideal.
(20) Seattle Seahawks: Lukas Van Ness, EDGE, Iowa - Seattle’s front 7 was dire last year. They had some young guys who could still develop (Boye Mafe, etc…), but I think they’re best bet is to keep throwing bodies at it. So after adding Carter at 5, I have them adding Van Ness. He can fit into that Michael Bennett big edge role they’ve always liked (and yes I know the scheme is different now, but the affinity for big edges likely hasn’t changed).
(21) Los Angeles Chargers: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU - Sometimes the boring pick is the right pick.
(22) Baltimore Ravens: Deonte Banks, CB, Maryland - I know most Ravens fan want a WR, but I just think this is a really bad WR class and they’re not gonna go as high as we think (kind of like the QBs last year), and I wanted this mock to reflect that. I think anyone they add at WR with their next pick in the 3rd (foreshadowing) has a good chance to be as good as anyone added here. So instead I have them pivot to grab local boy and freaky tester Banks, who I kind of have as the last of a tier.
(23) Arizona Cardinals (From Minnesota): Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee - The run on tackles spooks the Cardinals who decide to move up to secure one. They need help everywhere but keeping Kyler upright has to be a priority.
(24) Jacksonville Jaguars: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame - Personally I have both Musgrave and Kincaid ranked ahead of him but as I expect them to bring Engram back, what the Jags really need is a TE who can block as well as catch passes. Since Washington’s already off the board, Mayer is easily the best Y TE remaining.
(25) New York Giants: Joe Tippmann, iOL, Wisconsin - Like I said above in the Banks blurb, I think the receivers are gash and they’re gonna fall like the QBs last year, and I wanted to put that to the test in this mock. And Tippmann’s pre-draft process reminds me a lot of Frank Ragnow’s, where he was a 2-3rd rounder the whole time in the media then a few days before the draft you start to hear actually teams love him and he ends up going a lot higher. To me Tippmann is the slam-dunk top center prospect and he’d look great in NY.
(26) Dallas Cowboys: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah - Mostly I’m ripping this off from Dane Brugler who mocked him here the other day and is really plugged-in with the Cowboys. There’s plenty of rumblings though that Jerruh wants to add offensive weapons, and it looks like Dalton Schultz is heading out the door.
(27) Buffalo Bills: Steve Avila, iOL, TCU - I’m sure a lot of you would prefer Torrence here and that’s fine too, I have them ranked really closesly. I just think Avila’s better on the move and more versatile, which gives him the nod in this spot.
(28) Cincinnati Bengals: Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State - Cam Taylor-Britt looks like a keeper but Eli Apple is meh average and a FA, Tre Flowers is a FA, and Chidobe Awuzie will be attempting to come back from a November ACL tear. This is a thin group. Forbes thickens it, despite his frame.
(29) New Orleans Saints (From San Francisco via Miami and Denver): Mazi Smith, iDL, Michigan - Once he fully tests he’s gonna eradicate some RAS DT records, the Saints have always loved their traits, and they’ve never been afraid to take a guy before consensus. Shy Tuttle and Onyemata are both FAs and it’s unlikely both are back.
(30) Detroit Lions (From Philadelphia): Adetomiwa Adebawore, iDL/EDGE, Northwestern - Lions’ GM Brad Holmes had never been afraid to go and get the guys he wants, and I really expect that to include Adebawore. I think he’s more likely to be the next Aaron Donald than Kancey (though let’s be honest, we’ll never see another AD), and Holmes was on the staff that drafted Donald. And he believes in interior pressure, he admitted as much when he drafted Levi Onwuzurike. That one hasn’t worked out due to injury, so it’s time to go back to the well.
(31) Kansas City Chiefs: Matthew Bergeron, OT/iOL, Syracuse - One of my favorite players in the draft, I was regularly grabbing him in the mid-2nd for my Lions on the simulators but I think everyone’s starting to come around now. And seeing as the Chiefs have no tackles, it’s a move that makes a lot of sense.
(32) Pittsburgh Steelers (From Chicago): Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina - Cam answered a lot of the athletic concerns at the combine and he plays with an attitude I expect the Steelers will love.
(33) Houston Texans: Drew Sanders, LB/EDGE, Arkansas - The Texans need help everywhere, and after bolstering the offensive side of the ball in the 1st round, it’s time to flip over to the defense.
(34) Minnesota Vikings (From Arizona): Bryan Bresee, iDL, Clemson - I can’t in good conscience not go defense with the Vikings pick, and I really think Bresee will be a great fit on Brian Flores’s attacking scheme. With the possibility Dalvin Tomlinson moves on they could really use an interior attacker, and Bresee fits.
(35) Green Bay Packers (From Indianapolis): Keion White, EDGE/iDL, Georgia Tech - Once the big RAS superstar starts to fall down the board a little, the Packers pounce. He’s a great fit in Green Bay as he has the ability to play on the line in a 3-4 and also to flex outside (he’s more athletic than Enagabare). With Rashan Gary out for a good chunk of the year, Hollins likely gone, and Dean Lowry and Jarran Reed likely gone as well, a guy with the versatility to play everywhere will have a lot of appeal.
(36) Los Angeles Rams: Luke Musgrave, TE, Oregon State - Snead has never been shy drafting TEs (Everett in the 2nd, Higbee in the 4th, Hopkins in the 4th) and due to the depth of the class Musgrave is a better prospect than what is normally available. Higbee’s realistically only got one year left on his contract (and they could move on this offseason without much penalty if they wanted to), so it’s time to start grooming his replacement.
(37) Seattle Seahawks (From Denver): O’Cyrus Torrence, iOL, Florida - Torrence’s mini-fall has nothing to do with his ability and more to do with his niche skills. Any team that wants their guards to move is gonna have him lower on their boards which will probably hurt his stock overall. But in a phone booth there might not be a better guard in the class.
(38) Las Vegas Raiders: Cody Mauch, iOL, North Dakota State - He’s got centeguard versatility which I think will really appeal, he and Parham can fight it out to see who snaps the ball and the other can play guard.
(39) Chicago Bears (From Carolina): Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College - So finally another receiver, Flowers is actually my #2 guy behind Smith-Njigba but I don’t think he’ll go before Johnston. He may still be an amateur but he’s really a pro who’s ready to contribute right away, and I don’t think it’s a mystery that Fields needs more weapons.
(40) New Orleans Saints: Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama - I know he gets comped to Kamara all the time but I think that’s a lazy comp. Kamara ran in the high 4.5s, Gibbs just blazed a 4.36. He’s not as big as Kamara and doesn’t have his contact balance either. They’re both great pass-catchers but that’s really the extent of the similarities to me. But with Kamara facing a suspension that could potentially last as long as the whole season, and with the rest of the RB room being just a little bit gash, Gibbs is a fit whether he’s Kamara 2.0 or not.
(41) Tennessee Titans: John Michael Schmitz, iOL, Minnesota - Yeah, the Titans really need to hammer their OL. I don’t know if Schmitz plays center or guard for them, but he’s an upgrade.
(42) Cleveland Browns: Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee - I know the Browns really need defense more than offense, but the mini-fall of Hyatt sees them pivot. Plus there’s all the rumors about how they really want to open up the offense, and we know the FO wants a legitimate field-stretcher. They tried to go that route with Schwartz but it turns out he wasn’t legitimate at all. So they take a second crack at it.
(43) New York Jets: Brian Branch, S/NB, Alabama - It might seem shocking to see him fall this far but I’ve been mocking him in the 2nd for a couple of months now. Non-elite athletes with average measurables at low value positions always fall. He’s a glove-perfect fit for the Jets though and I expect we’ll be looking at years of borderline all-pro production.
(44) Atlanta Falcons: Tyrique Stevenson, CB, Miami - After AJ Terrell, who didn’t have his best season, the Falcons are a little thin at CB. Isaiah Oliver’s a free agent and Casey Heyward’s old and missed a good chunk of last year with an injury. He technically has one more year left on his contract but the Falcons could move on if they wanted.
(45) Indianapolis Colts (From Green Bay): Julius Brents, CB, Kansas State - Ballard loves his elite testers and Brents fits that. And he’s never been afraid to take them a little early either. Facyson is almost certainly on the way out and Gilmore might not have too many years left. Adding another CB makes a ton of sense.
(46) Philadelphia Eagles (From New England): Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma - You know Howie’s not coming out of this draft without attacking the lines a little. I love the way he stacks positions with talent, it allows him to be very flexible with the roster.
(47) Washington Commanders: McClendon Curtis, iOL/OT, Tennessee-Chattanooga - Curtis is one of those guy’s who will go way higher than we expect, much like his former teammate Cole Strange. He’s answered all of the pre-draft questions we had for him. The step up in competition at the Senior Bow, check. He got better every day. The size, check. 35-inch arms at 6’6, 324. That’s tackle size. And while the athleticism wasn’t off the charts, it was plenty good enough (8.37 RAS). I don’t know that it’s enough to keep him outside, but on the inside I expect him to be a badass.
(48) Philadelphia Eagles (From Detroit): Felix Anudike-Uzomah, EDGE, Kansas State - No surprise the Eagles are adding bodies to the DL, right?
(49) New England Patriots (From Pittsburgh via Philadelphia): Jayden Reed, WR, Michigan State - The Pats needing receiver shouldn’t surprise anyone, but this receiver? Well did anyone think they were taking Tyquan Thornton in the 2nd last year? The Pats have a way of subverting our expectations. Also, Reed is awesome. This is about where I have him ranked personally.
(50) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee - I’m hearing a lot of noise right now that NFL teams like Hooker more than draft media does. There’s even a couple of anonymous scouts who have him graded above Levis and/or Richardson. I don’t know if it’ll be the Bucs, but some team is gonna believe they’re getting a top ten talent in the 2nd round at the most important postion in sports.
(51) Miami Dolphins: Sam LaPorta, TE, Iowa - Much better fit for McDaniels offense than goner Gesicki was, I think he’s pretty underrated in this year’s class.
(52) Seattle Seahawks: Zach Charbonnet, RB, UCLA - The thunder to Walker’s lightning. The Seahawks often draft RBs high, even when it appears like they’ve already got it covered. And with so many picks they can afford to spend a couple on what many would call a luxury.
(53) Chicago Bears (From Baltimore): Tuli Tuipulotu, EDGE, USC - I know I had them go Murphy in the 1st but like I said when I talked about that, they have so many holes I think they should just keep adding the best talent (the Lions did this last year when they added Hutch in the 1st and Josh Paschal in the 2nd). And Tuipulotu brings more inside versatility than Murphy does IMO. It’s never a bad strategy to hammer both lines.
(54) Los Angeles Chargers: Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia - At a certain point a team is gonna look at what he brings athletically (9.67 RAS) and decide they can bring the best out of him. And while corner isn’t a dire need for the Chargers, Staley always wants as many DBs as possible and in a division with the Chiefs, that’s just good strategy. And if Ringo isn’t able to overcome some of his change of direction issues, I think he could make a superstar safety.
(55) Detroit Lions (From Minnesota): Devon Achane, RB/WR, Texas A&M - You see that “/WR” in his byline? That’s the key to this pick for me. Otherwise there’s no way I think the Lions would go RB this early. But you know what other college RB was 5’8, 190 pounds and ran essentially a 4.3 flat? Tyreek Hill. And he wasn’t noted for his receiving ability either. When I heard Achane and Gibbs stuck around after the televised portion of the combine to do WR drills, my mind started to alight with ideas of Tyreek 2.0. The Lions like to be creative with Ben Johnson and Achane and Jameson Williams could potentially be a major headache for DCs.
(56) Jacksonville Jaguars: Calijah Kancey, iDL, Pittsburgh - This is another guy I think draft media is waaaaay higher on than NFL teams. You remember a couple of years back when Milton Williams set all kinds of DT testing records (9.94 RAS at DT)? Well he didn’t go until the mid-3rd. Now Kancey’s tape is a lot better but Williams was also 6’3 with 31.5 inch arms. Kancey’s 30.6 inch arms are all-time outlier territory, and that’s gonna be below a lot of team thresholds, no matter how much their GM likes his tape. In fact Baalke is typically a height-weight-speed guy himself so maybe Kancey’s off his board altogether. If not though this would be good value at a position of need.
(57) New York Giants: Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee - Along with Reed one of the more underrated WRs in the draft. Before he was hurt he was regularly dominating the best defenses the SEC had to offer. As his first year back from injury I basically throw last year out. In previous mocks I’ve had the Giants trade for Tee Higgins but now that it seems he’s not going anywhere, well why not take the Cincy GM’s advice and find their own?
(58) Dallas Cowboys: Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson - I’m pretty sure the Cowboys are about to lose Van Der Esch and while there’s some moderately promising depth with Jabril Cox, Damone Clark and maybe Devin Harper, it’s a terribly inexperienced unit and certainly not one that can be relied on.
(59) Buffalo Bills: Antonio Johnson, S, Texas A&M - Pretty simple, they’ve lost a lot at safety so they end Johnson’s mini-slide here.
(60) Cincinnati Bengals: Jordan Addison, WR, USC - Some of you will call this an overreaction to his mediocre testing but I’ve been low on him throughout the process. I’ve never mocked him in the first, and while this is maybe a half-round slide for him, I think it makes sense given - at least to an extent - he’s not who we thought he was. But the Bengals need to start preparing for life without Tyler Boyd if they intend to keep Higgins, Chase and Burrow, so adding Addison now and easing him in is smart.
(61) Carolina Panthers (from San Francisco): D.J. Turner, CB, Michigan - Part of this is value, I don’t think there’s any way Turner falls out of the 2nd round (and could go as high as the 1st), but also because I believe the Panthers have a pretty dire need for more DBs. Horn’s great but under Evero they’ll have six DBs on the field far more often than before, and Donte Jackson might not be back for awhile (and Henderson and Taylor might kinda suck). Turner’s a good fit cause you can play him both inside and out, blitz him (which Evero absolutely will do), and just generally allow him to create havoc.
(62) Philadelphia Eagles: Eli Ricks, CB, Alabama - It’s kind of gone under the radar just how good Ricks has been when he’s played. The problem, of course, is why didn’t he play more? A legit question teams are gonna have to get to the bottom of during the pre-draft process. But he could be a total steal if it turns out Saban was just being an overbearing ogre.
(63) Kansas City Chiefs: Blake Freeland, OT, BYU - Too high? Based on the tape maybe so. He has some real struggles with power. But long, athletic tackles never, ever last, and the Chiefs have no tackles as of this moment. Well they drafted one in the 1st but you know what I mean. As of the moment you’re reading this, they don’t have a single tackle .

(64) Chicago Bears: Keeanu Benton, iDL, Wisconsin - So yeah, I have Chicago hammering their DL. I know a lot of mocks have them going OL and certainly I was open to that too, but 1) the board didn’t fall the right way and I didn’t want to force it, and 2) I don’t think their OL is as bad as everyone thinks. Teven Jenkins is a bona fide stud guard, Braxton Jones looks like a total steal at LT, and Whitehair is still productive. I have them signing McGlinchey to play RT then at the other guard spot you can roll with Leatherwood or find another mid-round guard.
(65) Houston Texans: Karl Brooks, iDL, Bowling Green - The Texans need to get more pressure from everywhere on their line, and that happens to be Brooks’s strength.
(66) Arizona Cardinals: Luke Wypler, C, Ohio State - Project “Protect Kyler Murray” continues.
(67) Denver Broncos (From Indianapolis): Jaelyn Duncan, OT, Maryland - Polarizing prospect but this feels like the right spot for a guy like him: great athlete but questionable tape. The Broncos certainly need the help upfront.
(68) Denver Broncos: Chandler Zavala, iOL, North Carolina State - One of my favorite prospects in the draft and another dire need, and the 3rd is generally where you start to see guys from further down the consensus mock board start to go.
(69) Los Angeles Rams: Will McDonald, EDGE, Iowa State - I think the league is gonna like him a little less than we do. He’s got a different build for an edge and he’s older, and his production wasn’t always up to snuff. But the Rams have succeeded with a similarly skinny edge in Leonard Floyd, so they won’t hesitate to turn in the card for McDonald.
(70) Las Vegas Raiders: B.J. Ojulari, EDGE, LSU - I expect there to be pretty great value at edge in this class with 2nd rounders getting pushed into the 3rd and so forth. Here, the Raiders benefit. He'll fit with Crosby and Chandler Jones to form a fierce rotation.
(71) New Orleans Saints: Zach Harrison, EDGE, Ohio State - Let the edge run continue! This is the exact sort of edge the Saints like. Big, strong and fast. They may lose Davenport this offseason and Jordan’s getting up there, adding to the room makes sense.
(72) Tennessee Titans: Derick Hall, EDGE, Auburn - Four edges in a row! It looks like the Titans are jettisoning Dupree and Landry’s coming off injury, they really need more help. Hall’s strength-based game should work well opposite Landry and Vrabel and Co are gonna love his leadership and personality.
(73) Houston Texans (From Cleveland): Darius Rush, CB, South Carolina - Hard to imagine him this high a month ago but he’s had one of the best pre-draft processes of anyone. Maybe the best.
(74) New York Jets: Trey Palmer, WR, Nebraska - For a couple of reasons. 1) I think he’s been mocked too low all offseason. Guys with his size and athletic ability don’t last in the draft. They just don’t. And 2) His fit on the outside clearing out for Wilson and Moore to do work in the middle. An outside receiver who’s also a deep threat (unlike the soon to be released Corey Davis) will work wonders in New York, especially with Aaron slinging them the ball.
(75) Atlanta Falcons: Tyler Scott, WR, Cincinnati - Reuniting with his former QB Ridder. The Falcons are loaded with big, freaky pass-catchers. What they need now is a little electric guy to take advantage of all the space.
(76) New England Patriots (From Carolina): Jordan Battle, S, Alabama - The one thing we can say with some level of certainty about the Pats draft strategy is that Bill loves his Bama players. And with McCourty & Phillips getting older it wouldn’t surprise me at all if they brought in another body.
(77) Miami Dolphins (From New England): Sean Tucker, RB, Syracuse - Seems like a perfect fit to me for the one-cut-and-go ZBS scheme the Dolphins run. For Tucker to get the most out of his career, this is the sort of spot he needs to go. Mitigates his questionable vision and underscores his speed.
(78) Green Bay Packers: Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina - Finally a Randall Cobb replacement that will hopefully stick. They’ve got the outside guys from last year’s draft.
(79) Indianapolis Colts (From Washington): Gervon Dexter, iDL, Florida - Another height weight speed guy for Ballard (9.69 RAS), he can learn from DeForest Buckner for a little bit before eventually replacing him if all goes well.
(80) Pittsburgh Steelers: Jack Campbell, LB, Iowa - I won’t do a mock this offseason where I don’t send Campbell to the Steelers. Jack Ham, Jack Lambert, Jack Campbell. He already looks like a Steeler in Iowa’s black and gold, and he’s a glove-perfect fit as a ILB in a 3-4. I’m sure a lot of you think he will go higher than this after that combine, but remember another instinctive MLB with questionable coverage skills tested even better than Campbell (Leo Chenal, 9.99 RAS to Campbell’s 9.98) and still didn’t go until the very end of the 3rd. I think Campbell’s a little more instinctive so a half-round higher seems right.
(81) Detroit Lions: Riley Moss, CB, Iowa - In his tenure so far Brad Holmes hasn’t hesitated to double-up with premium picks on positions of need. Two DTs in 2021 in the 2nd and 3rd, two edges in 2022 in the 1st and 2nd. So despite grabbing Joey Porter Jr in the first I fully expect Brad to grab another CB. And Moss fits the RAS and scoring thresholds he’s liked so far.
(82) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Braeden Daniels, iOL, Utah - Like Zavala another guy I think will go much higher come draft day. Daniels is a fantastic athlete and has a nasty demeanor.
(83) Jacksonville Jaguars (From Seattle): Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, CB, TCU - I’ve been schooled by Jags fans that the CB need is not outside, but in the slot. THT didn’t play in the slot a lot at TCU but he’ll have to in the pros and he’s got the athleticism and the attitude for it.
(84) Miami Dolphins: Garrett Williams, CB, Syracuse - The secondary really fell apart last year, it makes a lot of sense to add to it in a deep class. I had a 1st round grade on Williams coming into the season and think he could be a steal here, though he measured much smaller than I thought he would (5’10, 31 inch arms). But it's fine even if he has to play from the slot. He models his game after Jaire Alexander, and if he can become a fraction of the player Jaire is, he can play anywhere.
(85) Los Angeles Chargers: Siaki Ika, NT, Baylor - The Chargers need to stop the run, Ika stops the run. He doesn’t do much else but at this point in the draft that’s OK.
(86) Baltimore Ravens: Marvin Mims, WR, Oklahoma - The Ravens seem to really like drafting pass-catchers from Oklahoma. Mark Andrews, Marquise Brown, all the way back to Mark Clayton. Some of those worked out better than others but I think Mims has really been slept on throughout the process, though that might change after his good combine.
(87) Minnesota Vikings: Parker Washington, WR, Penn State - The Vikings don’t need a lot of help on offense but they could stand to take some of the pressure away from Jefferson, especially since Theilen’s on his last legs. Washington will do most of his work out of the slot but that’s fine.
(88) Seattle Seahawks (From Jacksonville): Daiyan Henley, LB, Washington State - More front seven help for the Seahawks.
(89) New York Giants: Kyu Blu Kelly, CB, Stanford - It’s a pretty thin CB room in NY that could thinner if Moreau leaves. I like almost everything about Kelly’s game except for his long speed, otherwise he’d go much higher.
(90) Dallas Cowboys: Jakorian Bennett, CB, Maryland - Dallas loves their elite testers and could use more help at CB despite Bland’s emergence.
(91) Minnesota Vikings (From Buffalo): Zach Evans, RB, Mississippi - I actually have Evans as the #2 RB on my personal board, so yeah, don’t see him going to Minnesota. Of course what keeps him from going higher are off-the-field questions that will have to get answered. With Mattison a free agent and Cook potentially on the trading block, the Vikings could have a bigtime need here.
(92) Cincinnati Bengals: Kendre Miller, RB, TCU - The Bengals do have a bigtime need at RB since Mixon’s as good as gone and Perine’s a FA. More so than maybe any other team in the draft, I expect Cincy to draft a RB at some point.
(93) Carolina Panthers (From San Francisco): Tank Bigsby, RB, Auburn - A mini-run on RBs. This is about the range I expect them to start coming off in a deep class. I don’t know if Foreman’s coming back but Hubbard’s just fine, they could definitely stand to add to the room.
(94) San Francisco 49ers (From Philly): Byron Young, EDGE, Tennessee - A total bargain at this point in the draft due to his age and relative inexperience, he’ll protect against Ebukam leaving or Jackson not panning out.
(95) Kansas City Chiefs: Isaiah Foskey, EDGE, Notre Dame - With Clark looking like he’s on the way out EDGE is a definite need for the Chiefs, and the pickings are start to get a little slim.
(96) Buffalo Bills (From Arizona): Rashee Rice, WR, SMU - I’m just not sure Gabe Davis is ever gonna be anthing more than a MVS style deep-ball specialist. I’m not sure Rice will either but they need more guys that will make opponents pay for focusing all their efforts on Diggs.
(97) Washington Commanders: Tucker Kraft, TE, South Dakota State - Great value at this point, might have been my #1 overall TE in last year’s class.
(98) Cleveland Browns: Moro Ojomo, iDL, Texas - The Browns have to get more pressue from the line, Ojomo brings that from inside, and if he can hold up against the run he might prove a steal here.
(99) Philadelphia Eagles (From San Francisco): Zacch Pickens, iDL, South Carolina - More rotation for the DL, it’s right up Howie’s alley.
(100) New York Giants: Byron Young, iDL, Alabama - Lawrence and Williams are great but any time they need a break the defense suffers greatly.
(101) San Francisco 49ers: Sydney Brown, S, Illinois - The 49ers have holes opening all over their secondary so they take Brown to help fill them.
(102) San Francisco 49ers: Jartavius “Quan” Martin, S/NB, Illinois - Then add his teammate to continue to fill them.
