Glider + Block

This thread is to list the best glider+block collisions in any rule.

I'll start with one that seems impossible to beat: a 2c/66 spaceship that keeps shoving a glider into a block (it can reach it from infinity)!
`x = 6, y = 3, rule = B3-ek4cejqtwy5ekry6ain7c/S02-c3-cqy4qt5aej6en2o3bo\$2ob2o\$4b2o!`
`x = 13, y = 9, rule = B3-ek4cejqwy5kry6an7c/S02-c3-cqy4qt5aj12bo\$10b2o\$11b2o5\$2o\$2o!`

Re: Glider + Block

This one is even better
`x = 5, y = 9, rule = B3-cey5e6c/S2-n3-c4q5ay6aobo\$b2o\$bo5\$3b2o\$3b2o!`

16c/148 diagonal (4c/37)
Another ship spawns the glider farther away:
`x = 13, y = 8, rule = B3-cek4ez5ej/S2-n3-c4eq6e2bo\$obo\$b2o4\$11b2o\$11b2o!`

4c/134 diagonal (2c/67)
Slowest yet:
c/216 diagonal
`x = 6, y = 10, rule = B3-ck4ckwy5ai6c78/S2-n3-c4ceqy6en7c2bo\$obo\$b2o6\$4b2o\$4b2o!`

Different direction 3c/72
`x = 3, y = 8, rule = B3aijnqr4eikqy5ai6i78/S2-n3-c4eq5enr6ek2o\$2o4\$b2o\$2o\$2bo!`

A (6,19)c/233 which also has a glider crashing into a blinker and a spark
`x = 3, y = 7, rule = B3-cey6kn7c8/S2-n34qt5ny6ain2o\$2o3\$bo\$2o\$obo!`

Also, a p54:
`x = 3, y = 6, rule = B3-ceky4i5i/S234cq5r6anobo\$2o\$bo2\$b2o\$b2o!`
`x = 11, y = 5, rule = B2ck3-ij5n78/S01e2ei3-k5ai8b2o\$2o3b2o\$bo4bo3bo\$2bo2b2o\$o7bo!`

(15,3)c/600
`x = 9, y = 5, rule = B3-eky4ai5i6k/S2ae3-cei4aijr5i6ei7ebo\$2bo\$3o\$7b2o\$7b2o!`
`x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3-y/S234w2b3o\$bo\$o3bo\$o2bo\$obo!`
