Not everyone who goes to prison is a bad person; that should go without saying. The penal system is as complicated a world as any: We might as well get that out of the way right from the start.

There are some people out there though who commit crimes so heinous that they strain the mind, as we were reminded after Redditor Triggerdumliberals asked former prisoners, "Who was the most evil person there, and what did they do that was so bad?"

"My mom was locked up..."

My mom was locked up with Selena's murderer. And we all know what she did. Every Mexican woman wanted to kill her so they kept her away from everyone.

"Not sure about most evil..."

Not sure about most evil but interesting story. When I did time I was bunked up with a guy who had stabbed his uncle to death. Guy was insanely mean but when lockup came, he was super nice to me. He was 23 but couldn't read or write so we would dictate letters to his girlfriend and I would write them for him.

"They kidnapped and killed..."

When I was in the outbox the day before I was released I was hanging out with a bunch of guys just killing time.

One of them was part of a muti killing gang. They kidnapped and killed a bunch of people for body parts. And cut them off while the people where alive. It was a pretty gruesome case.

Anyways, he was really quiet and rather stupid. Just a simple farm boy type.

"There was a guy..."

English guy here, I spent 4 and a half months in prison in 2018. There was a guy who was really nice, seemed like a genuine guy. That was until I found out her strangled his drunk wife to death and left her there whilst he went to work the next morning.

"There was also a woman..."

I was locked up with Jodi Arias, so that was bizarre.

There was also a woman who murdered her baby and kept it in the freezer. We called her Maytag.

"He had killed a guy..."

Was in prison for 27 months. Unfortunately, your rapists and kiddie porn guys were mixed in to gen pop, so you would get all kinds like that everywhere. The worst one I heard of was when I was in military prison. Details are foggy because this was 13 years ago, but I remember there being a guy who got 99 years for murder. He had killed a guy, then killed the guys wife because she was home and would have been a witness, but not before assaulting her first. The whole facility got locked down every time they moved this guy, because they didn't even want the other inmates to see what he looked like.

"Heard from some other folks..."

Not exactly evil per se, but he sure as hell didn't comply with the CO's. Apparently he had refused to given them any information on himself, didn't use his phone call, and they couldn't seem to figure out who he was. Never spoke to anyone. Heard from some other folks he had been held for months. Not sure what he did, but no one seemed to wander within a few feet of him.

"A good friend of mine..."

A woman I was acquainted with in the facility I was in allegedly microwaved her child. Another woman killed her parents. A good friend of mine was forced, by her husband, to dispose of her sister's body after her husband had assaulted and murdered her.

You don't ask "why are you here". They'll tell you if they want you to know.

"She thought she could..."

Was in jail for a year. Girl who slept next to me smothered her infant child to death in a five guys bathroom because she thought the devil was going to come take him. She looked like a sweet woman, but was an unstable religious fanatic. She thought she could get away with an insanity plea as well.

Another one let her boyfriend kill her son, beat him to death and hung his dead body up because the little boy danced to music and the boyfriend thought he was gay.

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
