I've never encountered an off-leash dog. Ever. Am I alone in this?

It was one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen. The greenish water with sunlight shining through it, ripples clearly visible, refracting the light in different ways. I’m almost fifteen now, and that image is still extremely clear. I still can’t swim, I’ve never put any effort into trying to learn, though. If he meets another dog on leash he is usually very barky and sounds aggressive. At home, he is the best dog ever. We have a 9 year old lab who is his best buddy. We want to be able to take him out in public with us but I’m worried about hiking and having dogs off leash come up to him and not totally know what he’s going to do. Each year, thousands of people around the world ask; why does a dog attack unprovoked? Even more terrifying, the number of people who want to know why my dog attacked me for no reason, suggests people are not only worried about unprovoked attacks from strangers dogs, they're also encountering dangerous situations with their own normally well behaved pet. I can't do it. I just can't do it. I hate the expat network so much. This happened in China, exactly the fucking same thing, "helpful" expats and wife-of-expat or local-friend-of-expat trying to find a place for me to stay, oh yeah, super cheap, super secure location, please come stay in this fucking prison full of expats. Georgia Animal Rescue and Defence, Inc. helps homeless animals find the loving homes they deserve. If you are interested in adopting one of our adoptable pets, please read our adoption policy and then complete the online adoption application or email us with any questions. If emailing us about a particular dog, please put the dog’s name in the subject line of your email. I think that’s a plus, I never like to see a dog allowed to ‘practice’ a problematic behavior, and it’s tough to wait out some dogs, given that barking can be extremely self reinforcing. 4. Operant Conditioning, Punishment: The only example of Punishment that I ever use in these cases is Trish King’s “Abandonment Training.” In ... They don’t always get along, but they do pretty well. I am an older sister to a brother myself. So was my mother. So too, I believe, was my grandmother. I mention this because in each generation, I truly believe that the mother will look to the older sister and at some point say, “You are much nicer to your little brother than I ever was.” The spleen is one of those organs of the body that most people have heard of but many are uncertain where it is and what it actually does. Although it has several important functions, dogs can manage to live a normal life without a spleen if it has to be removed. The most common reasons for removal (splenectomy) are if the spleen has ruptured (usually after a road traffic accident), or if it ... Encountered a situation in the evening walk I’m hoping to get some feedback on. Panda was relatively relaxed up to this point until I saw a dog out the front of someone’s house off leash. Remembering that the idea is to minimise or preferably avoid the time over threshold I tried walking away but unfortunately not before the dog saw us.

I always cringe a little at the handful of off-leash dog rants that tend to rise to the top of this subreddit each day. It's obviously super stressful and I definitely sympathize, but I can't relate whatsoever. I've never encountered a single off-leash dog while walking any of my dogs in the last decade or more. I've also only ever encountered polite and awesome comments from people when walking a muzzled dog, and children who approach my dog are always accompanied by parents who remind them to ask permission before petting my dog, etc. Is this honestly that rare?
I am grateful to live in a city of such stellar dog stewardship, particularly if it's not the norm, but until I started following this subreddit, I had absolutely no idea how bad other people had it. Is it a geographical thing? Did I just luck out in my otherwise super ordinary college town urban neighborhood? Maybe I just pick the right routes and times to avoid these sorts of encounters? I hope this doesn't come across as insensitive; I'm genuinely curious and trying to understand why this seems to be such a huge problem for some people and perhaps a non-issue for others.

2022.01.18 23:02 YeeterSkeeter31 Where to find dataset of coast direction normals?

I apologize if the title doesn't make much sense but I'm rather new to this field. I'm looking for a dataset that provides the degrees the California coast faces. i.e. Del Mar may be 260 degrees while Newport Beach is 225 degrees. Does anyone know what this is called and/or a resource where I can find this data?

2022.01.18 23:02 Bahia77035 For Dual Blades, will I gain more damage from a Velkana/Safi synergy armor set, or from Silver Sol armor set? It seems more complicated than the guides on YouTube suggest.

Compare VelkanaY Helm and VelkanaY Coil combined with the other 3 Safi'Jiiva armor pieces. You get Velkana divinity which I believe is a 1.4 multiplier on Dual Blades. On top of that you get Dragonvein Awakening which amplifies the element further (although I don't know the exact number). And as an added comfort factor you get the Vampire effect which is nuts on DB because of the attack rate. Then the Velkana helm has Coalescence built in and it'll activate quicker because the Safi set has level 2 Blight Resistance so that's a further buff to the elemental damage (again don't know the exact maths). And just to top it off, you get level 3 Focus (good on DB) and level 2 Critical Eye.
Now look at 4 Silver Sol with Garuga Grieves. You get True Critical Element which is 1.6 multiplier on DBs. You get Critical Boost 3 built in, but you also have Slinger Capacity and Windproof, both of which seem INCREDIBLY underwhelming. The Garuga grieves give Critical Eye 2 which is nice but the other set gives it too so that makes it even.
So can someone break this down for me please. Is it really better to run the Silver Sol set for the extra 0.2 multiplier and Critical Boost, compared to the Velk/Safi synergy that may even (if the maths is good) give a better element bonus, plus a load of comfortable perks? The jewel slots are pretty much the same no matter which I choose. I just want to maximize elemental damage output.
Also I should note this is being used with Safi's DBs all with 5 elemental damage upgrades and the elemental damage augment
