Re(2): Listener No. 4386, Hailstorm: A Setter's Blog by Elap

I also enjoyed this a lot. I always look forward to the "numericals", but usually dislike them. Go figure.
Here, I revived my old Apple II BASIC skills (and I use that word loosely) to look for "hailstones" produced from any starting number.
I was surprised to see how many consecutive starting numbers produced the same number of hailstones, despite - obviously - heading off in the opposite direction at the start.
And I wonder; why is this still only a "conjecture"?
