Our Flickr Pool is the place where Consumerist readers go and upload photos for possible use in future Consumerist posts. Just be a registered Flickr user, go here, and click “Join Group?” up on the top right, and start hitting “send to group” on your individual photos you want to add to the pool.

Note that if you want them to have a shot at ending up on the Consumerist Friday post, you’ll need to open up your sharing settings on your Flickr account so we can grab the HTML from the “Share This” tab. Sorry, but that’s the only way to get Flickr and Consumerist to play with each other.

Add your shots to The Consumerist Flickr Pool, and perhaps they’ll get featured in a future story, or even highlighted in a Friday Consumerist Flickr Pool Finds post. See previous winners of the Friday Consumerist Flickr Pool finds here.

    What is that thing, second from bottom, Razor512?

    • Paladin_11 says:

      That’s a screw at the bottom, insulating plastic around it, with rolls and rolls of copper wire up above. I imagine it’s got a ferrous core, which would make this some type of electromagnet. Perhaps as part of a relay?

      It really *does* look like something awful is about to happen to someone’s eye.

    Anyone ever notice the directions of the eyes of the guys on Frankieleon’s first photo in the lineup? It looks like the two guys on the left are looking at each other and the third is looking forwards while the ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge’s business partner Jacob Marley watches all three of them. (Knew those three were up to no good! Get ’em Marley!)

  7. Keep talking...I'm listening says:

    The credit card guy is awesome! Two thumbs up

    OMG! I haven’t ever seen in the “Consumerist Friday Flickr Finds” an American currency note close up before.
