2021.10.26 23:34 _MothMan My father is in the woods begging for help.
Last night for hours we could hear a baby crying in the woods behind our house. I KNEW it wasn't really a baby, it couldn't be because for one thing we are the only house on the road and we own the 20 acres around us. . . After hearing the cries, my wife was compelled to go into the woods. I had to pull her back a few times and at one point she actually did go into the woods while I was trying to call 9-1-1. I couldn't see her but I could hear her walking aimlessly. I knew she couldn't see anything because my spotlight was mostly useless in these woods. The light beam wouldn't go more than ten yards or so before it just stopped as if it hit an invisible wall. . But when my wife entered the woods, the crying stopped, and something in the woods started walking towards her. I had to get her of course and we safely made it out. But the crying continued, even after we went inside and locked the doors, turned up the music, turned the television on, AND of course. Loaded the rifle.
A mossberg 30-30, my Dad's old rifle that he gave me before he died.
That's why hearing him in the woods right now begging for me to help...is impossible. . . "Harry please! For the love of God get in here and help me!" The thing that imitated my father cried. I'm standing five feet from the door of my house, rifle in my hands hearing a voice I haven't heard in eight years. . "Somethings in here with me Harry! Where are you!?" It cried in his weathered voice. . I don't really know the words to properly explain how it feels hearing his voice again. I want to help him. Even though I KNOW it isn't him because it simply can't be.
He had such a smile, the man could make anyone smile just be looking at them. It was infectious the way he lit up a room and made everyone know he was there without him ever asking to be the center of attention. . . . A hand grabbed my arm! my wife, thank God. Just had to pull ME back. I was two steps from being IN the woods. I didn't even realize it. I was walking without thinking, without putting any effort forward and yet there I was. Like a moth to light.
"Is that...?" My wife asked, I can see in her face that she doesn't want to say it because she knows just like i do that it can't be.
"No. No its not him." I said to her. Barely believing it myself honestly. . . . I'm not even going to try the police this time. It merely rang last night when it could have actually been a baby. Tonight though it's just impossible in every way.
I did think last night while we stayed awake out of fest, maybe it was just an animal in the end. Maybe we freaked ourselves out and let our imagination run wild. Maybe my wife entering the woods was just her being curious.
The truth is something in the woods wants us. It wanted her last night using the baby's cries. And it wants me now. Using my father's voice.
I told my wife, while lifting the rifle up. "I'm going to fire into the woods..."
She looked at me first like I was crazy then with soft worried eyes. "What if...I don't know what if you hit him...it."
I knew what she meant, what if I hit MY father. But he's not in those woods. He's not anywhere.
"Just, cover your ears." I told her, and she did. . . . The shot might have come from a Canon for how loud it was. Tearing apart the usual silence that comes with living in the woods. I had aimed for a tree and hit it, causing dry bark to fall off. . . . I'd hoped the shot would scare it away but it didn't. 'Harry, God help me, Harry! I can't get out of here! I'm lost! Come and get me please!" The voice of my dead father pleaded.
I wanted to cry, I wanted to empty the rifle into the woods because this THING this mimicking monster was using my father's voice against me!
I felt a chill run down my arms, I shivered just slightly.
"We can't stay here anymore." My wife said in little more than a whisper. "We need to just leave and get a hotel."
I can't argue. Fuck this place and fuck these woods. Whatever is in there can use whatever it wants to as bait. We are NOT going in the woods again.
We went back inside and threw our necessities into our bags. This has been our home for years but right now whatever is out there. Can have it! I'm done!
We'll take the bags, take the truck, head into town and stay anywhere else but here. I threw my bag over my shoulder, held firmly onto the rifle and pulled the front door open to see the long driveway that led to the road. . . . A corridor of trees fifteen feet wide. A dirt and gravel road that had been cut through the woods to get to the opening for the house. It wasn't a long driveway. Maybe a hundred yards, but it was surrounded by the woods,, we can see the street light at the end of the driveway but looking at the woods right now made my stomach curl into a knot.
It didn't matter. We'd get in the truck and stay as center as possible on the driveway. It would be fine.
Would be. If I hadn't just heard the soft metallic sound at my feet. . . I looked down, and watched the crushed lead tip of the bullet I had just shot into the tree outback, roll to a stop between my shoes. . . . My wife gasped, I stepped backwards into the house. Hearing my father's voice one more time. "Harryyyyy" In a long drawn out wimper, it broke me. . . . I just closed the door, locked it, checked every window and door, turned the music on, turned the television on. And once again in clutching my father's old rifle. Sleep won't come easy tonight.

I want to install the HD remastered texture pack but since I’m still new to modding Half Life games, what do I do? Do I put it into sourcemods? Or straight into the directory?

2021.10.26 23:34 alekversusworld Using SHIB burns as a marketing approach?
I saw where a company was saying they would burn SHIB for every stream on a Spotify playlist they made up to $100k worth.
That’s a pretty genius marketing approach I gotta say.

2021.10.26 23:34 Jhoe03 Hoje, minha tia narcisista, tóxica, manipuladora, disse que entrou num grupo de Facebook sobre pessoas que conviveram com pessoas, tóxicas, narcisista, manipuladora etc... sendo que a narcisista é ela.
Eu disse que ela é narcisista. Mas digo isso com base no que a psicóloga acha/diz que ela é.
Aí hoje ela disse que entrou nesse tal grupo. Pois ela alega que o ex marido e as filhas dela são manipuladoras, tóxicas e egocêntricas... quando na verdade, ela que é a narcisista da história.
Ela é uma pessoa muito boa pra mim e pro resto da família. Mas ela é super ruim pras filhas dela. As filhas dela tiveram que se afastar dela de tão tóxica que ela é.
Esses defeitos dela não me afeta. Pois ela sempre foi muito legal com os sobrinhos. Ela só é assim com o ex marido e as filhas
Eu só achei muito engraçado e o mesmo tempo preocupado por ela ter entrado nesse tal gp de facebook quando na vdd ela é uma pessoa tóxica, narcisista e etc.

2021.10.26 23:34 cmh413 N92 shakes at idle/low RPM after driving for a while, but a restart fixes it?
2007 328xi. Gave it some gas and it had begun shaking extremely bad, Service Engine came on. I restarted the car, it stopped shaking. Was still having a hard time on hills, and felt sluggish in general. OBD read misfires in 4 & 5; all well and fine. I replaced plugs & coils in 4 & 5. Car drives and handles incline better, but still a tad laggy. Onto the big problem, if I drive it for about 20 minutes it will begin to shake at idle up to 2500 rpm, OBD still reading misfire 4 & 5 although the replacements seemed to improve the problem, but not completely. I’m stumped here. Also throwing codes for Transmission Fluid Deterioration and O2 sensors.

2021.10.26 23:34 Beautiful_Ad_5375 Plagiarize help!!!! Email Professor
I know this is going to sound stupid but yes I plagiarized, I was just so busy that week so I did this stupid thing. My professor told me I got a 0 on the assignment and said “further issues of this nature can result in disciplinary action”. She gave me another chance. She didn’t fail me from the course. I was wondering if I should email her apologizing and admitting my mistake. But what do I write in the email?

2021.10.26 23:34 Far_Ad_6788 My BF took our "break" as an excuse to see his ex
We are both 21 and have been dating for 2 years. After a fight we decided to take a break but we both said we "didn't plan on seeing other ppl and would take time apart to work on ourselves". We still communicated with good morning texts etc. In this two week break I learned (he confessed) that he has sex with his ex and received a BJ from her twice.
Of course I was pretty livid when he told me last night. But honestly I'm just rethinking this whole thing it's like he had no self control. Am I missing something? It's just irritating me. I love him and I see a future with him but this is so F-ing annoying I'm not the best at giving BJs so I just feel like the moment he could get a good one he just went for it. Thoughts on this??

2021.10.26 23:34 hecatearrowkey11 Is he flirting with me or just joking around?
I (20F) work with this guy (20M) at a restaurant. He and I go to the same school, and we have a lot in common. He's a friendly guy, but also kind of nerdy. When we first started working together, I would always go up to him and ask him questions, like his weekend plans and such. He'd asked me questions back, however, I felt like I was doing that too much, so one day, I just didn't ask him anything. I was still friendly to him, but I didn't go out of my way to talk to him. The next day, however, he came right up to me and asked me questions about my weekend plans. It's been that way ever since, with him initiating first. Sometimes, he'll stand next to me, but not say anything. He'll also go out of his way to help me at work, even when it's inconvenient for him.
The other day at work, when it was slow, he asked me what my plans were. I told him what I was doing, and I asked him what he was doing. He told me that was going to visit his friend at work and bother them. He then said "I'm not going to say no to bothering someone at work. I already bother you enough at work. Or should I bother you more?" Was he flirting or just joking around?

2021.10.26 23:34 Largicharg How did “comments” at JW meetings work and what were you expected to say?
In several Caleb and Sophia videos, the parents encourage the kids to make “comments” at the meetings. How did these comments work? Did you raise your hand and get called on during the talk? I was the odd one out as a young catholic when I’d interrupt a priest like that, and yet it sounds like it’s an implied requirement as a JW. What were you meant to say?

2021.10.26 23:34 12_nick_12 Routing Questions
Hello all, my routing understanding is lackluster. I'd like to join three LANs, and cloud servers onto one network.
Each site is like below
Router (static routes for other networks pointing to rPi running OpenWRT) -> rPi
tailscale up --login-server=https://headscale.domain.com --accept-routes --advertise-routes=LAN_HERE/24.
I'm able to ping other nodes, but can't SSH or seem to do anything other than ping. Any help would be appreciated.
