Spook Light

2022.01.26 23:52 ColdBlackWater Spook Light

Or "spooklight" as it's given locally. Lived within a couple miles of it.
Mysterious Universe has a good account (The Missouri Spook Light) which perhaps could have mentioned the explanation of many -- the effect of a low-lying miasma, gases rising from the ground, distorting perspectives, the light itself a distant reflection of cars' headlamps on the nearby interstate.
Should have -- but that's not it. I'd put that chance at next-to-last in probability, right before "spirits of two Native American lovers whose romance met unhappy ends."
But anyway, I saw it years before I lived right by it -- at which latter time I never tried to see the Hornet Spook Light (its local name; Hornet itself is almost a ghost town) again -- not because of fear, but because, well, you've seen it once, it was amazing, and why test fate and risk not seeing it. You're already batting a spooky 1.000.
It was around Christmas, and cold in the Four States (the Spook Light dwells within a mile or two of three of them); the ground wore a white contour of frozen snow like facepowder on a corpse. Bleak midwinter.
And there were we three: my companions looked, repectively, like Bette Midler and a local shopkeeper later suspected of being Albuquerque's West Mesa Killer -- like, I say; it wasn't Bette and Ron.
We parked up the hill a bit, not quite sure of where to look, and attempted to see something, as one does. It was very dark. Despair set in with the half hour, so we drove down to the intersection and found that the Spook Light Museum -- we saw it when we first arrived -- was now open.
It was a pleasant dark place and "Spooky," its owner, was very proud of his new wood-burning stove. "Keeps it toasty," he beamed. "It'll run you out of here."
He showed us aging clippings from back before the interstate was built, accounts of the Spook Light, to pooh-pooh that notion. We sipped our hot chocolates.
Then we all stepped back outside. "Oh, you'll see it I bet," he said, matter-of-factly. "Comes most nights."
So there we stood, at the intersection in the cold, and waited. The sky was black.
Within a few minutes we saw a light bobbing down the road, a pin-prick at first, then larger, larger. It was mesmerizing. When it reached the intersection, a bit to the near side of the road, it stopped, and hung there for a moment, a yellow-orange orb the size of a basketball -- maybe a bit bigger. We faced off with it -- myself, Spooky, Bette, Ron, and Spook Light. All very real.
It glowed. And in perhaps three seconds it blinked out.
There -- gone. We blinked. Spooky chuckled. "Does it most nights," he said.
We said our goodbyes.
You tell me.

2022.01.26 23:52 le_guspr [Personal theory] The show's antagonist is the personification of Cobra Kai

Not Kreese, not Silverman. The show's antagonist is the (messed up philosophy behind) Cobra Kai.
How so? During the show, we see that different aspects in Cobra Kai have lured its fighters. Back in the 1980s, Johnny was simply a lost young man without a father figure. Miguel and Eli mostly benefited from the dojo to develop self-confidence. Tory and Robby were forced to learn early on that sometimes survival means one cannot always follow a strict moral code, so the ruthlessness of Cobra Kai fits them. None of them was to attracted to Cobra Kai due to the messed up no mercy philosophy.
On the other hand, Cobra Kai's philosophy is not the result of a twisted mind of an evil-doer. The idea of no mercy corresponds to a lesson wrongly learned, of an extreme attitude stripped out of its context. The show is profound enough to also humanize Kreese: in season 4, one is induced to think that Kreese develops the philosophy of Cobra Kai taking into account his experience during the war. No mercy is simply necessary to survive during war. When he recalled the time when prisoners were forced to fight with each other for their lives, they simply had no option -- they either killed their allies or they would die.
The thing is: Kreese failed to realize that adopting no mercy as a life principle means becoming evil itself. He did not understand the full consequences of one such philosophy. Each time something messed up occurs on the show, the mantra no mercy is repeated either as a justification and/or to incentivize evil acts. Robby only landed a kick on Miguel to follow this no mercy philosophy. Hawk breaks Demetri's arm because... no mercy and on and on.
Going back to the humanization of Kreese, even the man himself shows some mercy for Johnny as Terry was kicking his ass in the old dojo of Cobra Kai. How could the inventor of no mercy act as such? My theory is that one after another learn that this philosophy should not be taken to its full consequences. Before season 4, some students first leave Cobra Kai, then Johnny abandons Cobra Kai when he realizes how messed up the philosophy is, then finally Eli. To finish, what happens at the end of season 4? Terry's actions mean simply that he is following the dojo's philosophy.

2022.01.26 23:52 FappingOnTheStreets Lost my mojo

So I started learning Portuguese for about 6 months last year. I developed a pretty good vocabulary & pronunciation via anki. However, when I started learning grammar, things started falling apart. I had been following Gabe’s fluent forever guide up until the grammar part, as this chapter didn’t make too much sense to me. Life then got busy and I fell out of the routine. Now I want to get back but I’m unsure where to start! I tried a video lesson with someone from Brazil but the connection was very poor and I didn’t feel like that was a very efficient way to learn a new language. If anyone has some tips on how my study days should be organised, and how I should be studying Portuguese grammar, that would be so greatly appreciated! I really aspire to be fluent in Portuguese by the end of the year!

If you're a retired police officer and looking to blackout so hard you lose custody of your kids, I know just the place for you. New York's hottest club is "Paper or plastic sonny?". Located in the Puerto Rican section of Central Park, this abandoned 2 door sedan was bought at bernie madoffs police auction and airlifted in as a prank by stevewilldoit.
It has everything: -Those sex dice you found in your mom's shoebox
-Dogs that overdosed on dark chocolate
-Reclining leather seats
-Child soldiers
And if you want to switch up the music, be sure to try out the domestic abuse box
Colin: "What's the domestic abuse box?"
It's when you blackmail the DJ into playing your songs because you have pictures of him hitting his wife

Any movement inputs facing towards the left side are now not either consistent or responsive at all. Right side inputs seem to be fine. Was just wondering what are some solutions? Do I have to order any specific parts to fix? Hopefully this is a simple problem and I wouldn't have to buy a whole new one.

2022.01.26 23:52 vanillacat22 USPS delivered very important packages to the wrong zipcode. Not sure what to do now.

I ordered some very expensive packages through various websites. I do not have a lot of expendable money as I am a college student, and most of these packages were presents and gifts for my friends. For that reason I am pretty livid right now as I track my packages and see that they are all marked "delivered through USPS", with the tracking details showing that they have been "delivered" but to a completely different zipcode (the last two digits of my zipcode are flipped in the audit). I double checked the zip code I used to order the packages, as well as the shipping adressed across all the different sites, and found that I personally did not make ANY mistakes in the shipping information - the vendors themselves also did not make any mistakes, as they had used the shipping details I had provided them (which were correct and have been used before in the past to purchase stuff from the same website with no issues in mailing).
Now I just feel like shit as I realize the hundreds of dollars I spent on all these gifts could be gone to waste because it was delivered to some random guy due to a zip code mixup. What can I even do? If I call USPS will it be too late? Can I be reimbursed for the money I spent? This really fucking sucks man.

2022.01.26 23:52 AryInd HELP! Persisting CUDA error with tensorflow

Hi everyone. I'm trying to make tensorflow use my NVIDIA GTX 1060 gpu in my laptop. I created a python environment and installed tensorflow, python, pip, etc. I am using Ubuntu on Windows (so wsl-ubuntu). On CMD, the nvidia-smi command is showing my GPU. But with tensorflow, I get the following error:

I have CUDA 11.5 and 11.6 installed, with cudNN installed. I manually copied and pasted the files into the CUDA directory and ran the exe (exe didn't seem to install files though). I am not sure what else to do. Help would be really appreciated!
