2021.11.28 05:00 LaDeckard Spare Time Resort & Spa, Arizona
I was travelling across the nation a few days ago. I attend college in California, but I was offered an internship with a firm in Chicago where I had previously worked for the summer. So being the curious young tourist I am, I took the U.S. Route 66 back on my way back to California because my internship ended three weeks before my semester began and I had always wanted to travel the Main Street of America.
I was probably someplace in Arizona when it happened. I was driving quickly and blaring music in my ancient car with the late summer breeze blowing through my car. I had been travelling for several hours and was looking for a location to pull off and sleep for a few hours, before setting off for the final stretch back to California.
I got off the freeway and drove down a road in search of a motel. I'd been driving for over 15 minutes and was about to turn around when I came around a bend and noticed a motel ahead of me. That sort of building reminded me of a classic Mexican pueblo building as it seemed it had existed there long before Arizona existed.
The place seemed lovely and very, very costly. Still, I assumed it'd be a great break from the various airbnbs I'd been staying in. I parked my car in the lot and entered the building on foot. I was immediately taken aback by how dark the hotel was inside; despite the hot Arizona sun glaring down outside, it was as if it was midnight and the only light came from a lamp on the reception desk.
Behind the desk, a man in a bright red vest stood. He smiled at me with a grin that was almost too big, “Good afternoon, sir, How may I assist you?”
I inquired about the cost of a motel room for the night. “Our regular rooms are 30 dollars, but you can upgrade to our master suite for 50 dollars,” he remarked with a slight nod and the same big smile. The price caught me off guard a little bit, This motel has the appearance of being an expensive resort. The floor was made of white marble and reeked of rich desert vacationers. Still, I'm not one to turn down a good deal, so I requested the master suite.
“Of course, sir, Ms Villacrés will show you to your room.”
A young latino woman waited at the entrance, beside a candle that seemed as if it had been lit and burning from the previous century. She took a step forward, framed by the wavering light. “I'll bring you to your rooms,” she stated flatly and quietly.
She led me along the corridor, passing by rooms on both sides. As she went, the woman murmured just above a whisper. “With your master suite, sir, you enjoy unlimited complimentary room service 24/7. At no extra charge, we can supply you with whatever you desire and please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.”
She handed me an ancient wrought iron key when we got to my room. It almost made me chuckle, Was this hotel a deliberate recreation of those typical horror movie motels? I opened the door with my key and walked inside. My room was spacious, with a canopy bed and a balcony with views of the Sonoran Desert.
“Please ring the bell if you need anything from me,” she added, pointing to a bell hanging on the wall. “Would you like anything while I'm here?”
I paused for a bit before shrugging. “Sure. I'll have a glass of wine, What do you have?”
“I would highly suggest a great complementary Sauvignon blanc we have from Bordeaux, Is that sufficient?”
Complementary Sauvignon blanc? This motel was looking up “Yes, That would be fantastic.” I stated.
She vanished for a little period before reappearing with a large glass. I accepted it and thanked her, and she walked away down the dimly lit corridor, soon disappearing. The wine was outstanding and the greatest I'd ever tasted. I wasn't sure what to make of this motel, but I assumed I'd been lucky and I was fast asleep in my bed in no time.
I wasn't awakened by the voices until many hours later. They sounded as if they were coming from right outside my front door. They were certainly singing, though it was difficult to tell. I barely caught a few phrases, but I recall hearing the word "beautiful," and the rest of the words I couldn't decipher, for soon hundreds of voices could be heard.
As soon as I regained my composure, I walked up to the wall and used the bell. The voices abruptly ceased when the bell tinkled quietly in the darkness. I heard a knock on the door within thirty seconds and I approached it cautiously, unsure of what to expect. My heart was racing, and I despised myself for forgetting to bring something to protect myself with.
I pushed open the door to see Ms Villacrés standing in the hallway “Sir, how may I be of assistance?” she inquired.
“I...uh…What were those sounds I heard just now?” I inquired.
Ms Villacrés lacked expression “Oh, they're simply our visitors that's all,” she explained.
“Ah, I see,” I responded. “How about bringing me another bottle of that wine you brought me earlier?”
“Sir, what wine was that?” Ms Villacrés asked with a continued lack of expression.
“Ah I think it was Sauvignon blanc, That's what I believe you served me.”
“That's something you'll have to discuss with our front desk. I'm afraid that we don't serve that brand of wine here. Sir, good night.” Like that she went out into the darkness.
For a little period, I shut the door and focused my thoughts. This location was suddenly giving me a terrible vibe, and those voices I heard was all I needed to know I was ready to go. I snatched up my backpack and walked along the dimly lit corridor to the front door. Behind the desk, the same man stood and it seemed he had not moved all night.
“Hello sir, how may I assist you?”
I didn't want to talk to him, but I felt compelled to do so as I made my way towards the exit. But to arouse suspicion I made up an excuse, “I was offered a glass of Sauvignon blanc wine before bed, but was then informed you don't serve it here, so I believe I'll simply go now.” I walked over to the door and pushed it open, but my fingers felt the stucco of the wall instead of the glass of the door. I saw that the ancient door I had entered through was no longer there and in its place was a sturdy stucco wall.
“I'm sorry to hear we weren't able to cater to your preferences, sir. We haven't sold that brand of wine in this hotel in over three decades.”
I swung around, perplexed. I must've gone the wrong way, I’m in this lobby. I looked around the area for the door but couldn't find it. “Sorry, but can you tell me where the building's exit is?”
My gaze was drawn back to his features. His grin was unusually broad, almost reaching his ears. His teeth were protruding from his mouth, and his hands were strewn on the counter. “Do I understand you want to go, sir?” he inquired.
My mouth soon went dry, I managed a nod.
The man behind the counter gave a ferocious shake of his head. “You may go at any moment, sir, but you may never check out.”
With adrenaline coursing through my veins, I did the only thing that came to mind, I dashed back down the hall to my room, slamming the door shut and locking it behind me. I tried using my phone, but it didn't work. I sat in the room for a long time and when I finally had the confidence to test the door, I discovered it was securely locked. My key had no effect. My phone's battery went out as the hours passed and it had been a dozen hours, but it was still dark outside.
I was completely spent and finally, I gave in to my body's demands and collapsed onto my bed, where I promptly fell asleep.
The sun was shining on my face as I awoke. I coughed and sat up, dust all over my body. When I turned back, I saw I was in the centre of what appeared to be an abandoned and rusted structure. I was still in my room, so it wasn't just any abandoned building and it seemed while I slept, the room had acquired decades of decay. I sprang to my feet and pushed open the door, It had rusted, but after a few kicks, it swung open. That's when I discovered that the entire motel, like my room, appeared to have been abandoned.
The lobby was the same, but I exhaled a sigh of relief when I noticed the desk was unoccupied, and an even larger sigh when I noticed the door. My car was parked outside, as it had been the previous night.
I climbed into it and drove away, the only thing on my mind was that I wouldn't be stopping at any motels anytime soon.

2021.11.28 05:00 Faringarth What kind of therapy should I pursue
So I can't seem to find anything anywhere else online for this topic, and have very little knowledge of the different therapies, so I thought I may be able to find options here. So here's the big issue, I know I'm being abusive to my boyfriend with some of my actions, but I can't seem to find ways to get better with the things I'm doing. I was wondering what type of therapy would work best. One part of me feels like relationship therapy would work better as it only occurs in the relationship, but another part of me feels like personal therapy would be better cause it is me doing it. I don't know which one to pursue and was hoping I could get some insight. Thanks in advance.

2021.11.28 05:00 dspeyer EA Forum Digest 28 Nov 2021
How many EA 2021 $s would you trade off against a 0.01% chance of existential catastrophe? I'm interested in how many 2021 $s you'd think it's rational for EA be willing to trade (or perhaps the equivalent in human capital) against 0.01% (or 1 basis point) of existential risk.
This question is potentially extremely decision-relevant for EA orgs doing prioritization, like Rethink Priorities. For example, if we assign $X to preventing 0.01% of existential risk, and we take Toby Ord's figures on existential risk (pg. 167, The Precipice) on face value, then we should not prioritize asteroid risk (~1/1,000,000 risk this century), if all realistic interventions we could think of costs >>1% of $X, or prioritize climate change (~1/1,000 risk this century) if realistic interventions costs >>$10X, at least on direct longtermism grounds (though there might still be neartermist or instrumental reasons for doing this research). To a lesser extent, it may be relevant for individuals considering whether it's better to earn-to-give vs contribute to existential risk reduction, whether in research or in real-world work.

Submit comments on Paxlovid to the FDA (deadline Nov 29th). 1,000 Americans are dying daily from COVID-19, and perhaps 7,000-8,000 per day throughout the world. Paxlovid is 89% effective against it. Pfizer submitted an EUA on Paxlovid to the FDA on Nov. 16th. The FDA has yet to schedule a meeting to review this EUA request, 11 days later. Thousands of lives are at stake over this delay.
For molnupiravir, they only took 3 days to schedule a meeting, but they scheduled that meeting for 7 weeks out, on Nov. 30th. Here is a link to the announcement.
And as far as I can tell, it doesn't have to be about molnupiravir. It can be about Paxlovid.

How should Effective Altruists think about Leftist Ethics? In their report on Charter Cities, DavidBernard and Jason Schukraft write:
Finally, the laboratories of governance model may add to the neocolonialist critique of charter cities. Charter cities are not only risky, they are also controversial... Whether or not this criticism is justified, it would probably resonate with many socially-minded individuals, thereby reducing the appeal of charter cities.
I want to preface my comments by saying that I respect the authors, I thought the report as a whole was super useful, and I'm personally biased because I like Charter Cities.

The Explanatory Obstacle of EA This post discusses multiple issues relating to the way the EA movement is perceived (ranging from common misconceptions to unjustified strong opinions against EA) and suggests alternatives to the ways we describe EA.
Since I don’t have the resources to quantify this problem, I rely on my personal experience as a community builder and that of many other community builders and explain the rationale behind my suggestions.
Around 2013, a couple of mass media articles about EA (1,2,3) - specifically about Earning To Give - were published. These articles clearly missed most of the nuances behind the idea of Earning To Give, and heavily misrepresented the idea.

Historian and bestselling author Rutger Bregman explains why he took the pledge Hi! I'm an Amsterdam-based writer interested in EA. While I was researching EA initiatives in The Netherlands for a longform article I found out that Dutch popular historian and bestselling author Rutger Bregman (author of Utopia for Realists and HumanKind) had taken the Giving What We Can pledge to donate >10% of his income. I asked Rutger for an interview to find out why he took the pledge. This is a translated crosspost from my newsletter on underrated ideas and progress, De Optimist (Dutch only).

2021.11.28 05:00 ZiggyThePineapple Item randomly appears in apartment with no reasonable explanation.
So my girlfriend and I recently moved to a new apartment just a little shy under 2 months ago now. Weird things have happened since being here like stove dials and sinks being left on. But most of this can be explained since we both tend to forget turning things on/off from time to time.
But today was different.
Today, while getting ready to go out for dinner, my girlfriend noticed something while in our bathroom. She has a coffee mug that she uses to keep her hair elastics in. Other than a few bobby pins, the only thing that is ever in this cup is hair elastics. But today, while she was getting ready, she noticed that there were 2 perfectly in tact hairnets in the mug as well.
There is absolutely no reasonable explanation as to why these hairnets would be in the mug. Neither one of us uses hairnets. The only time she has ever used a hairnet is for when she used to dance and that was over 8 years ago now. Plus, she uses that coffee mug every day and I’ve even seen her use it and wash it since we moved here.
I have absolutely no idea how something like this could have happened. I would almost be comfortable with the idea of an intruder but how would an intruder know exactly where in our bathroom cupboard to put something as specific as a hairnet in my girlfriends hair elastics mug? It all just seems way too odd…
