You Don’t Run Your Computer

Gone are the times of firing up a computer and performing some web browsing, scrolling through social media, or doing a bit of work. Today, a lot of things you do, and nearly everywhere you go, is being tracked. While this isn’t exactly meant as telemetry, it’s functioning as telemetry. Your phone, computer, or nearly any device you use that’s connected to the net is tracking various things. In the newest macOS update, Big Sur, everything you do is logged and sent to Apple. This was first reported on by Jeffrey Paul, with the program Little Snitch. On November 12, 2020, Apple’s hash servers slowed right down, and it affected every iMac connected to the internet. Almost every computer has some kind of hash server so long it is running Mac or Windows. It knows your IP address at every moment, so it knows your location, but this is nothing new. Well, a more significant problem exists.

Ranking Popular Thanksgiving Foods

Since Thanksgiving was today, I thought that it would be fun to personally rank some popular Thanksgiving foods. Thanksgiving is fun and all, but it’s probably one of my least favorite holidays. I really just don’t like the food that much, and I probably never will. I also wouldn’t really call myself a picky eater, but I really only like the super basic Thanksgiving foods. This list is solely going to be based on my own opinion, which many people will probably disagree with.

Black Friday is the day of the year that everyone is either really excited for, or completely dreads, there is no in between. However, the great deals are always great, even if the crowds aren’t. Black Friday will be very different this year with Covid being a factor. Some stores are handling it differently than others are, but many people are planning to stick to online shopping. Black Friday isn’t a big deal too many, but it can be fun to go into the chaos and get yourself some deals.

In honor of it being Halloween, everyone has been getting in the spooky mood lately. This may be the best Halloween we’ve had in a while, if Covid stays out of it. Halloween 2020 will be on a Saturday night and it will be a full moon. Many Halloweens events have been cancelled already. In hopes that our great Halloween will happen, here is a list of some of the scariest and most haunted places in the United States. 

5. Stanley Hotel

The exterior of the hotel

The Stanley Hotel was the biggest inspiration for the very popular horror movie, “The Shining”. The inspiration for the movie came to Stephen King after staying in the most haunted room of the hotel, room 217. The hotel is in the middle of the Rocky Mountains and is said to be the most haunted hotel in the United states. It is said that the hotel is haunted by a very large amount of ghosts, ranging from celebrities, children, pets, and even the original owner of the hotel, Freelan Stanley. Staff of the hotel claim they have visibly seen Stanley and his wife enjoying their afterlife in the hotel. 

The concert room

Many of the ghosts in the hotel are well known due to their late celebrity status, however one of the most known ghosts is named Jack. He haunts the concert hall of the hotel and thinks he runs the place. It is 11:00 P.M. curfew at the hotel. Guests have reported hearing Jack yell, “Get out!” when the clock strikes 11:00. Many other ghosts live in the hotel. Guests have reported being nudged, hearing voices, feeling watched, and seeing a person one second, then them disappearing the next. Many rooms in the hotel have been said to be the best for paranormal activity. Guests try their best to get these rooms, however they are normally booked and several visitors have even been put on a waiting list for these rooms. 

4. AZ Field of Screams

The AZ Field of Scream is the scariest cornfield haunted attraction in the U.S. It holds a large variety of characters played by very experienced actors. The actors do have the opportunity to touch you and if they feel that it is needed to scare you, they may pull your hair, arm, or clothing. People who haven’t claimed it were the scariest attraction that they’ve ever been to. Many said they left with tears from being so terrified. 

Actor form the maze

The corn maze was planted over an old, rundown and forgotten cemetery. The dead from the cemetery may still be lurking in the tall field of corn. The attraction’s description says, “You’re walking through a quiet dark cornfield, anticipating every second danger is lurking around the next corner… you walk quietly and suddenly wonder if you are the only ones out there, where AM I? SHUUUUSHHH … then a blood curdling scream in the distance reminding you … they are out there … waiting… for YOU … it’s not IF they will get you … it’s WHEN will they get you … and your brain is screaming RUN! … But where do you run? ….. They are waiting for you …..”. If just that narrative doesn’t scare you, I’m not sure what will.  (Hit “2” to read more)
