Just noticed there are symmetric diehards in the 16h messless bin now. It doesn't look like anything above 14h has gotten mentioned anywhere (?), so here's a celebratory LifeViewer with a fairly pointless 28G synthesis of one of them (
messless hashsoup/C4_1/l_UgAakbjWsQC41075418 ):

They have, actually. The

Ah, thanks for the pointer.
 Bother, the original form of the gliderconstructible C4_1 lasts only 1629 ticks, and the C4_4 one dies off at 1615. Guess we're stuck with the recordbreaking one with an accidental annoyingly swastikish shape in the middle, maybe until a 17h soup comes along.

Found an unnamed 30bit still life, apparently I'm the first to discover it in a soup. I don't think it's going to be useful for a synthesis but I'm not completely sure.

Not only that, but it's an actual component, not just a synthesis. The last eight gliders can add that ridiculous decoration to just about anything that looks like a tub at one corner. There's a huge amount of clearance:

Here are links to the
zz_LINEAR page and the
G1 soup. (I went and looked because the soup seemed to be the wrong one at first, but that appears to have been fixed now.)
6912 is an impressively high period for a switchengine pair from random soup. The initial interaction between the switch engines is a more normal p1152, but interactions farther back multiply that by six.
