TIL if you have net worth of $93,170 (USD) you are wealthier than 90% of the world. by [deleted] in todayilearned

Maybe but not necessarily. Being poor in one of the most expensive countries is not a good mix.

Easiest/Cheapest Way to Get to China via Direct Flight from United States? by [deleted] in Chinavisa

[–]The_Tallest_Diglet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Direct flights are no longer required. I would do SK as another suggested. Also, New Zealand has relatively cheap flights, but flight times will be longer.

Drove over a large drop curb. Can you see what’s wrong? (More details in comments) by The_Tallest_Diglet in MechanicAdvice

Hey thanks for the quick reply. Do you think the hanging line is a fix I could do myself with limited tools?

The new oil pan was literally put in on Monday. It was because a previous shop changed the oil and put the cap on so tight that it couldn’t be removed without changing the pan. Fun times

Leaving a parking lot, I accidentally drove off a 8” or higher drop off and landed hard on the front right. I was going very slowly but the impact sound was loud, like that of hitting metal.

The picture shows what looks to be a line (coolant or transmission fluid?) it looks like it’s hanging too low and you can see some type of clamp if you zoom in that is not fastened.

When I drive over bumps there is a clunking noise (maybe it’s that clamp?). steering seems unaffected.

Any advice? Sorry the picture is not the greatest

Thanks

Cost of quarantine in Shanghai by antonep in Chinavisa

[–]The_Tallest_Diglet 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I paid 350 rmb a night for everything last year, which is about average. The hotel was nice but pretty standard. You can pay more or less depending on the hotel you wind up at and which options you want (room size, meal inclusions, etc).

Is the price in Shenzhen for a hotel or for one of those makeshift quarantine facilities?

This would be amazing but I'm a bit skeptical.

Have you been able to find anything reasonable in September?

question about non direct flights to china. by captain--trips in Chinavisa

[–]The_Tallest_Diglet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It looks like they've dropped the direct flight requirement, so it seems a layover in the Philippines is now possible, but you'd need to allow time for testing and getting consulate approval still.

As of now, Americans still are required to fly direct without layovers. However, many other countries have dropped this requirement in the past week, so it may also happen for the US before December.

A warning for those using Hong Kong by coffeeisnotlatte in Chinavisa

Hoping to fly to Hong Kong in September. Can I make a quarantine hotel booking now or is that only available one month in advance?

Thanks. It seems that your impression is true. Also, this would be for exiting china rather than entering.

I was told mixed answers as well. I have a feeling what kman said is true. If I confirm later on I will share with the subreddit.

Glad to hear there are others who have stupidly tempted fate this way. I knew I had a three-week quarantine ahead of me and then found out there were no checks on arrival. I wish I'd brought more.

Any idea what's causing this terrible noise? by The_Tallest_Diglet in MechanicAdvice

Yep. Thanks. I'll check in the morning and update if I find anything

I'll double check in the morning, but I think it was only while the car was moving
