    Maybe they look different when you hot glue pebbles to them. Duh! (Don't try this at home.)

    It's just the first thing it made me think of was a creampie. Either way it looks like something with spooge leaking out. Didn't really capture the whole water thing.

    It looks like a rock vagina creampie...

    [–] This is what depression looks like. evilcelery 6 points ago in pics

    Cornell was a former drug addict, including prescription drugs. I guarantee he'd taken Ativan and other benzos many many times before and he or someone close to him probably would have picked up on that kind of side effect. So I don't buy it.

    He did, however, talk about suicide and depression A LOT. He may have seemed ok to his wife recently before his suicide, but he had a long history with depression and suicidal thoughts, and a lot of people, especially men, become really good at hiding how depressed they are. I think she's having trouble accepting that he was so depressed and she didn't pick up on it. I know if it happened with my husband I'd be devastated that I didn't somehow pick up on it and do something.

    [–] What was the first fish you ever caught? evilcelery 1 points ago in Fishing

    I wish I could remember. My dad fished A LOT when I was little. There are a ton of pics of me from 3+ with stringers of fish. Probably a sunfish like just about everyone else.

    I do remember my first very own fishing rod was a small closed face from Seaworld Ohio of all places. They had a trout fishing pond and apparently sold some kids rods. I think I was 3-4. Not even sure why my dad bought that because we had better rods, but I guess I told him I liked that one or something.

    [–] The limo that crashed and killed 20 people failed inspection. And the driver wasn't properly licensed. evilcelery 5 points ago in news

    For what it's worth I didn't downvote you and wasn't trying to suggest you were excusing it, just saying I don't really think it's extremely relevant why she was using alcohol; because no matter what, she did it knowingly and got in the car with kids.

    I personally don't think she was applying it topically or just putting a bit in her mouth here and there for relief to get to that level of intoxication, and she also had THC in her system, so it wasn't like she was adverse to actually consuming intoxicants. Her husband initially made her out to be nearly some kind of teetotaler, and then it comes out that yes she does drink periodically...yes they do keep hard liquor around (he said they kept around a bottle of vodka, but I'm skeptical that was all; can't remember if this was in the documentary or I just read it)...yes she does consume pot (and people said actually she did it regularly). None of this on its own is really big a deal, or abnormal/addictive behavior, yet her husband and other members of the family initially tried to convince the public that she just outright wasn't a drinker or pot smoker, which makes me think there were worse problems than a normal level of drinking and pot smoking.

    It seemed like she really portrayed a different image to different people and was a huge control freak from her friends' descriptions, so my theory is that she was wound so tight she just kind of snapped. Maybe she wasn't a long term alcoholic, maybe it was recent, or was something she did on and off. You don't have to be a long term alcoholic to suddenly make a horrible decision, and not every alcoholic is constantly drunk every day, but may be prone to binging under stress, which is easier to hide than those that are drinking at their desk at work or something. She could have been randomly binging and throwing the empties in public trash cans/dumpsters. I've also known a lot of alcoholics/drug addicts and have friends/family that are drug counselors, and alcoholism/addiction can take a lot of shapes depending on personality and how long it's been going on.

    The big mystery really is did she crash the car on purpose or not? Kids were screaming at her, making phone calls. Apparently she did talk to someone on the phone at some point. And yet she refused to pull over. Maybe it wasn't on purpose but she just didn't want to pull over and wait for help because that'd be admitting she fucked up and things got out of control. Either way, she made a decision that she knew could potentially be catastrophic and her husband doesn't seem to want to admit that.

    [–] The limo that crashed and killed 20 people failed inspection. And the driver wasn't properly licensed. evilcelery 4 points ago in news

    I've had someone coming directly at me where the road going through my town transitions to expressway (keep going straight but speed limit goes from 45 to 60 and turning lane starts to narrow and disappear). Luckily noticed them in time and was able to lay on my horn and get over. After a couple seconds they whipped onto the correct side.

    I get super paranoid about my husband because he works on the road so he's frequently encountering craziness in traffic. Oddly enough though, as much as those guys drive for work, the fatalities with coworkers in automobile accidents have been when they're on their off days driving around near home. I wonder if they get complacent once they're home.

    [–] The limo that crashed and killed 20 people failed inspection. And the driver wasn't properly licensed. evilcelery 7 points ago in news

    I assume because Ambien shows up in tests and it wasn't one of the chemicals found in the toxicology report. Alcohol and THC are what showed up, and that's plenty to make one drive erratically.

    Even if she had popped an ambien, the toxicology tests aren't lying about alcohol and THC being in her system, so she was knowingly irresponsible. It's unlikely she accidentally smoked weed and drank. Given the actual evidence there is just nothing to excuse her behavior regardless of what her husband (who has not told a consistent story) wants to believe.

    [–] The limo that crashed and killed 20 people failed inspection. And the driver wasn't properly licensed. evilcelery 12 points ago in news

    The documentary did cover it, and the Doctor they spoke to even theorized it (to which the husband blew him off (starts at 1:15:50 if link doesn't work right)) but it's irrelevant anyway, isn't it?

    If you have extreme tooth pain you don't just go "Oh sure, I'll take the kids" and continue to drink or do drugs to alleviate it. It doesn't really matter if she was doing it because she was an alcoholic, or she had some other excuse, it's the same type of dishonest irresponsible behavior. Instead of admitting to the family "yeah I'm not competent to drive right now" like a normal responsible person she takes off with multiple kids. She wasn't quite right mentally, and having read about and watched the family, I think several of them aren't quite right either.

    The husband was constantly moving goalposts and contradictory about the whole situation so I kind of just ignore his opinion because he's not trustworthy or reliable. "She wouldn't do drugs/drink, she wasn't like that." "Well maybe she did a little bit sometimes, but not with kids around." "She didn't have any alcohol that weekend." "Well she only had a couple the night before." "Well, she only would have crashed if she had a medical emergency like a stroke or something." "Well if she DID drink it was because she had a medical event and didn't know what she was doing."

    He's all over the place, sometimes admitting that it's possible she drank, but with all kinds of excuses for it, and sometimes in complete denial that she could possibly have had any alcohol at all. The most likely scenario is that she was drinking because of some kind of mental problem or addiction, no matter the state of her tooth, and didn't wanna admit it to her family/husband. Given their behavior I'm not really surprised she wouldn't be super open or they wouldn't let themselves accept signs that were right in front of them.

    [–] This shark is tired of your shit evilcelery 7 points ago in gifs

    Have you never been to a public aquarium? Nurse sharks lay there not moving about 90% of the time. The vast majority of sharks don't need to continuously swim.

    Nurse sharks are also pretty docile and not easily stressed. Some aquariums actually teach them to come up and touch target poles (much like marine mammals) so they can be handled and rolled over for medical care and checkups. They use treats and positive reinforcement.

    [–] Abbey, The Dog From 'I Am Legend', Is Now 13 And Living Her Best Life evilcelery 3 points ago in aww

    That happened to my Greater Swiss Mountain dog. If it's the spleen the abdomen will usually very obviously swell from them bleeding out internally (I thought she had bloat or something before I got her body to the vet and they explained it). They can apparently have ruptures in places that don't show as obvious outward signs though.

    My dog bled out really really fast. She was barely responsive within a few minutes, and she died within 20 minutes on the way to the vet (late at night and emergency vet wasn't super close). I heard her yelp, ran into the bedroom, and she already was unable to sit up or walk. Apparently it was unlikely they could have done anything for her even if my normal vet were open due to how quickly she bled out.

    Her dad had the same type of tumor around his spleen, but they found it while looking into another health issue and removed it before it burst. Unfortunately he died from something completely different and unexpected not long after (can't remember exactly what).

    [–] Massive corrugated metal tube with pipe inside. Oversized load truck spotted about 30 miles outside of Pratt, Kansas. evilcelery 1 points ago in whatisthisthing

    Well, seems everyone is in agreement and nobody contested it, so this is now marked solved.

    Makes sense to see one around there too since there are a ton of refineries in that region.

    You and u/TexasClass are most likely correct, but I'm gonna wait and see if anyone can get a better picture/example just in case. All I'm really coming up with on google are diagrams, and the few good pics that show a similar design seem to show much larger towers like this https://lubes.exxonmobil.com/Basestocks/about_news_vacuum-fractionation-tower-arrives-at-rotterdam-refinery.aspx .

    [–] Massive corrugated metal tube with pipe inside. Oversized load truck spotted about 30 miles outside of Pratt, Kansas. evilcelery 1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago) in whatisthisthing

    My husband passed this on the way home from work. I initially thought maybe some kind of silo, but upon closer look it doesn't really seem to match anything I've seen or can find. So I'm stumped.

    He didn't see any markings or anything, but he didn't really have time to look. Not real sure on size. A whole bunch of car lengths (he's guessing 60+ ft). You can see a few cars in pic to get an idea.

    Also, yes there is a guy riding on the back (to steer maybe?). They were moving about 30mph. Husband didn't notice until I pointed it out in the pics.

    [–] Just some of the litter we picked up today. I wonder if the people that throw their trash on the ground throw their trash on the floor at home. You inconsiderate SOB's need to take your shit out with you! evilcelery 2 points ago in Fishing

    I have 5 of the old style metal stringers in my house that I just found sitting next to the spillway like someone dumped them out and left them. I use them to hang old lures on for decorations. They weren't even rusty or dirty, so they weren't there long. I'm really not sure why people abandon perfectly good or collectible items while they're out fishing (though I think drinking often has something to do with it considering the amount of beer cans usually nearby....).

    [–] Just some of the litter we picked up today. I wonder if the people that throw their trash on the ground throw their trash on the floor at home. You inconsiderate SOB's need to take your shit out with you! evilcelery 2 points ago in Fishing

    I have fished with people that throw there excess line, lures, and plastics in the water after they are done. They never catch many fish and I usually don't try to fish with them anymore.

    You should try. I know it's irritating, but people don't change their ways when you just avoid them them and they're still doing it even if you can't see it. I've definitely gotten at least a few people to behave better and even treat wildlife better by hanging out with them more and talking respectfully about it, as well as setting a good example. Even better if you can invite them with a group of your like minded friends so they can see their behavior isn't always normal. Most people feel bad or out of place if they see you and others going around picking up trash, including theirs and they're just sitting there. Something like that is often needed to make it click. Sometimes they just don't understand the issue with what they're doing, much like with people that unthinkingly throw cigarette butts on the ground (and I unfortunately used to be one of those as a teenager because it's what my parents did and I just never thought about it despite being a conservationist and against litter otherwise. Took being yelled at for my brain to even kick in and realize what I was doing.)

    I understand avoiding them if they don't respond at all to you saying something, or they're hostile about it (some people just can't take criticism), but for many people I think it's just a habit they picked up from whatever examples were set for them.

    [–] Jellyfish found on Puget Sound beach. My best guess is a lion mane but I'm from Michigan so I'm no expert evilcelery 1 points ago in whatisthisthing

    Look into some of the more exotic asian cuisines. One of the chinese restaurants near me that specialized in unique seafood dishes used to serve it (did not try it, didn't sound appetizing to me personally). Not sure if this species, but if your brain is telling you to eat jellyfish anyway. :D

    [–] The Magic Pill on Netflix just blew my mind evilcelery 6 points ago in keto

    Not arguing with you, just adding on. People are extremely ignorant about what the word cancer means. To be fair the media and society in general portrays it as an overarching thing (The big C!), so I can't blame them. There are so many different types of cancerous cells, and effecting different body parts for different reasons. Anytime someone suggests ANYTHING to be a potential "cure for cancer" one should be skeptical.

    There are many potential "cures" for one type of cancer in lab tests that upon further research for found to increase other types of cancer, sometimes drastically so. It's just not that simple.

    And a lot of the foods that people tend to gravitate toward when getting on the keto bandwagon (bacon and other cured meats for instance) have been linked with an increased prevalence of certain cancers, even though a low carb high fat diet in general may reduce the likelihood of other types of cancer and have many positive health affects otherwise. Keto isn't in and of itself a cure-all, and I hate that it gets presented that way. Most things aren't a cure-all.

    Cutting out simple carbs and sugar, not demonizing fat, staying satiated, and getting yourself down to a reasonable size, all which keto can potentially do (there are plenty of ways to go wrong) are all good ways to live a healthy lifestyle in general. The overall cancer risk, or risk regarding specific cancers long term isn't known yet, and it's also hard to know because people do keto multiple ways. One person may live practically on bacon, and another person may avoid processed meats and red meats and mostly eat vegetables, fish, and olive oil. The health risks long term for these people are unlikely to be the same, so doing a comprehensive study is going to be difficult and likely needs to be broken down into something other than an overarching "is keto healthy" question.

    [–] My aunts sunflower garden in Utah! evilcelery 14 points ago in pics

    There are. The ones in the pic are obviously one of the mammoth varieties. Some of my black oil sunflowers that the birds drop in my yard get higher than my 6 ft fence and large flowers, but not this big. And different varieties get different sizes and colors of seeds too. Some varieties product the black and white striped seeds you see at the store, and some produce plain back ones. And there are even ones whose flowers come in different colors between white and almost black or purple.

    There are also small varieties. I had dwarf teddybear sunflowers planted out in front of my house earlier in the year. They're little fluffy yellow flowers.

    [–] I found this cat 1 week ago. It seemed like he was struggling to find food, he was like a feather. I'm not a pet person but I knew that he needed help urgently and after hesitation I decided to bring him home temporary. After 1 week looking for adopters, I realized he found his home already. evilcelery 2 points ago in aww

    He's pretty young, but speaking as someone who has raised many kittens he's definitely not young enough to need formula.

    Left with his mom he'd probably be eating both regular food and drinking some milk, but he's old enough to eat just regular food without any health issues. He looks about the age where mom would be starting to tell him to get the hell off of her :p .
