ausfahrk: Didn't witness this, but heard it from my wife and kid: They were at the gym for the kid's swimming lessons, and one of the younger students took a crap in the pool. The staff immediately got everyone out and sent in a Roomba-like vacuum robot to retrieve the turd. We truly live in an age of wonder, my friends.


Y'know - an old skool Pac Man robot turd-eater would be a BIG seller in the pool industry.

Never drink water myself. Fish function in it.

Tangenital: The water out at my mom's home in rural Oklahoma tasted funny for a while. Later they found a dead Preacher in the water supply.

//he didn't alter the pressure ala Miss Lam however


So there was a little bit of holiness in everyone for a while?

A guy drowns in our lake a few years ago. We're still drinking from it.
That and the deer and the moose crap in it.

DrPainMD: FTA: "Officials said an autopsy on Thursday did not provide a definite cause of death..."

Lack of oxygen to the brain. That's pretty much the cause of death for every person who's ever died.


No, I would say it's the stoppage of the heart. You're an MD, you should know better.

Based on the video, I'm going with hallucinogenic drugs. This, friends, is why you always get a trip sitter.

I wonder how long she tread water in the cistern before she became exhausted from the cold and drowned? Would anyone have heard her calls for help?

/not one of the ways I'd choose to die.

I hope she wasn't one of those:  "I love to pee when I go swimming in the tank" types.

The tap water "tasted horrible," Baugh said. "It had a very funny, sweety, disgusting taste. It's a very strange taste. I can barely describe it."

Bad water jokes- check
Pic of the walker in the well from the walking dead- check.
I'm leaving.

I wonder how the water could be safe to drink - I assume it was treated/filtered between the tank and the taps?


Also:

mesmer242: Wasn't this a CSI episode or a Bones episode or a Law&Order episode? I swear I've seen this one.

What's worse than drowning? Drowning while tripping balls! Must have been hell, if that was indeed the case.

They mention that they had to cut open the top to get her out.  I'm sure she was bloated and all.. but still, how did she get in in the first place?

That's too bad. They had the only long pig on tap..

//aren't you glad that was an L not an R. Took the high road..

What gets to me is why anyone would ever trust what any "official" says.  Ever!  Remember Fukishma?  Yea that is still going on.....
 
2013-02-22 05:41:10 PM
Yeah, there's no way in hell that water was actually safe to drink.
 
2013-02-22 05:48:34 PM

aevorea: Here's a link to a surveillance camera's footage that shows Ms. Lam's last known location (well, prior to corpse-watering up the place).

It looks as though she is either mentally ill / outta her mind on drugs, or playing drunken hide-and-seek with a companion who's holding down the door-open button.


That video was just flippin' creepy. I half expected it to end up being one of those videos that lures you in then suddenly some horrific picture pops up and a scream or growl comes out full volume.

I was actually thinking of this CSI NY episode: http://www.csifiles.com/reviews/csi/cool_hunter.shtml
which does have a woman's body in a rooftop water tank.

We need to watch all of these people for 28 days after they drank or bathed in that water.
 
2013-02-22 09:17:42 PM
If a living person shiat in there it wouldn't be safe to drink. But stick a whole dead ass and colon in there and everything is fine.

As long as the brain continues to get oxygen (and has an outlet for waste), a beating heart is not necessary.

The One True TheDavid: Don't people pee and poop when they die?


I was on a murder trial once and had to view the crime scene photos of a woman that was drowned in her bathtub.   I wouldn't call it pee and poop.  More like a complete evacuation.  Like everything inside of you just relaxed and let loose.

The More You Know.

You think he'd have the decency to clean her off afterward. Didn't they have a hand shower? When my longhaired dog has diarrhea we stand him on the tub and hose his rear end off, so I know it can be done.
