Lifetime Mortgage

Original Prompt (from a Horror PM)
Your house has been creaky for as long as you've lived there. You've come to terms with the squealing floorboards, with the groans and screams that echo through the halls whenever the wind blows too hard. That's what old homes do. But one day your friend points out that your house was only built ten years ago.
As I closed the front door behind me, I couldn't help but notice it. The groaning noises as the house settled reverberated off the walls. I'd learnt to tune them out, after all they were just the noises of any old home. But then Anna had pointed out this home was only 10 years old. Now I couldn't get the question out of my head: Why did my new home sound like a dilapidated, old mansion from a horror movie?
All I wanted was to collapse in my bed, exhausted as I always was. But first, I resolved to answer the question, starting with the floorboards in the hall. Every time I walked along it a symphony of squeaks and creaks filled the air. All I had to do was tear up a small patch of carpet, and I might finally have some answers. I fetched my tool bag and set about my task but no matter what I tried the carpet wouldn't budge. I tried every tool I had: scissors, screwdrivers, a craft knife. Even the electric drill couldn't damage it. Giving up on the conventional tools, I went to the kitchen and collected every knife I could find. I tried all of them, stabbing down with all of my might at this point. My shoulder almost jolted out of the socket when something actually worked. I looked down in shock at the silver letter opener now firmly planted in the floor.
Before I could proceed any further, a howl of pain rumbled through the house. I froze in shock and confusion. The sound seemed to be coming from everywhere at once. I scrambled up and started running for the door, terrified that the house was about to collapse, when something grabbed me. First my right wrist, then both ankles. I glanced down to see hands extending from the walls and floor. They looked as if they were made from the same materials of the house, the plaster and carpet grabbing at me with a grip of iron. A yank sent me tumbling to the floor, and pinned me down firmly. I struggled and screamed in vain.
The shrieks died in my throat as a low, creaking voice filled the air.
"Never do that again."
"Let me go!"
"Not until you've calmed down, and given me your solemn promise that this will be the last time you try to hurt me."
"What? Hurt you?"
"You know what you did."
"How can I hurt a house? How are you speaking to me? What's going on? Just let me go!"
"Hmm, so she didn't explain when she sold you the house. Interesting. I'll be having words with her."
The tone of voice suggested that as much as I didn't want to be me right now, I wanted to be her even less.
"I'm your house. I shifted myself into this shape to provide warmth and shelter. In return you feed me each day," the house rumbled. "It is a very fair deal. A home for a small amount of energy. Not many of my kind let those we feed on live."
"Please just let me go, you're hurting me," I sobbed as I struggled against the restraints. I could feel blood trickling down from where it held me.
"I'm afraid I can't do that. You hurt me, and I don't trust you to not do so again."
I started screaming again, but as I did I felt all the fight die inside me. The screams faded to murmurs which faded to silence as I slumped onto the floor.

2021.10.23 18:40 IsraelDid9114sure Practical use of charts during online play. How many? Which ones? Online or printed? Any tips welcome.

I have experience using
a preflop call/fold chart from each position,
20BB shove/fold chart from each position.
I am currently learning how Balancing My Range is important. So first I need to establish my range.
Here are some questions I have.
1 How do you personally use range charts during online play?
2 How often do you use a chart when making decisions?
3 Do you use any charts to help you decide raise amounts?
4 I am trying to improve my game as much as possible and I know establishing my range is crucial. What scenarios should I make range charts for?
Lastly, 5 what software should I use, free if possible, that I can access and reference in real time while playing online
Thank you

2021.10.23 18:40 ChoobieScoots Ugh photo recovery.

I recently found a charger that would work for my old MacBook. I raced home to power it up and was having a blast looking through old photos of me in high school. I then realized the photos were being quickly deleted and the photos were all being synced to my current iCloud account. I quickly stopped it and managed to save a few photos but a bunch are missing.
So far I have checked recently deleted, the local trash folder, icloud itself, and attempted to “time machine” it to revert it back. All fruitless. Any other ideas??
