Does diphenhydramine cause issues with pupil dilation? I recall that in nearly every image of him his pupils were huge.
I believe it can, typically it would be most pronounced at higher doses. It also causes difficulty focusing and vision blurring which could be somewhat related to dilation of the pupils. I do think there's something to the theory that he was abusing diphenhydramine in some way, either due to insomnia, anxiety, or maybe just using it to 'trip' [if you can really call it a trip, more like a fever dream] but it doesn't seem likely that there'd be any conclusive proof at this stage.
He could've been taking OTC "sleep aids". In the US, most contain diphenhydramine, which is a bit concerning since it's pretty easy to get nasty side effects from it. Maybe he was unintentionally taking too much of it? He claims to have hated drugs, although that seems like one of many things he claimed to hate that he was obviously wholly ignorant about.Is there any reason to think he was doing this? Doing it repeatedly for a long time would probably really fuck up your head. It's not remotely pleasant. Most people don't do it again. Also doing enough of it to get anything like a "trip" is also potentially physically toxic too.

I think it was just speculation because of his bugged out eyes, and a way of explaining his weird behavior. I think people sometimes expect the mentally ill to be a little more interesting or creative than Mr Stair was.Is there any reason to think he was, though? He could have been huffing jenkem too for all I know.

Unless something surfaces that can somehow prove it was a pattern of behavior, though, it's essentially just a theory. If someone spots a pile of Unisom bottles in one of his videos that might be indicative but beyond that it can't really be proven.
So, at the time of his shooting spree, he was crossdressing and wearing Ember makeup?Not sure how interesting it might be to anyone here, but a Reddit user by the name of skeletor_thagawd managed to get Randy Stair's autopsy report, as well as the reports of his victims, via FOIA.
Something I find strange is that Randy Stair apparently took a heroic dose of Benadryl prior to his rampage. My ballpark, quite possibly bullshit estimate would be that he took in excess of 300mg of diphenhydramine at some point prior. Maybe that's why he saw ghost girls and thought a Danny Phantom character was telepathically communicating with him?
Anyway, here's his autopsy report.

It's such a shame he killed himself without trying to get another job. Imagine the great job interview responses the world is forever deprived of.I recently rewatched his "Goodbye to parents pt 2" to his parents and the section where he goes of an a super angry rant about how his father took him to dinner and told him to either get a full-time job within the next year or else. Randy was so angered by this comment he said he wanted to "blow his fucking head off". A 24 year old man who wants to MURDER his father for wanting him to act like a fucking adult. Spoiled cunt.
So I then wondered, well how expensive would it have been for Randy to move out and stay near his work at the market and near his parents?. I found within 5 mins of searching a 600$ a month 1 bed apartment 10 mins away from his work 15 mins away from his parents. He owned a new car (his parents bought for him) and easily could have started working full time and moved out. Hell, with the money he wasted on animators, voice actors and buying overpriced software+computers he could have paid months of rent just on that cash alone. He would have had his own place, kept his job and stayed close to his family.
So then I looked up PA minimum wage which is $7.25 per hour. If he was working full-time 30 hour weeks he would make $870 a month enough for rent and food plus he could always work overtime. Knowing his family also he would be getting extra cash to cover any leftover bills since they would be super glad he was out of the house and they are solidly middle class. Not to mention the literal thousands of dollars of electronics he owned he could sell just incase. View attachment 1396186
His belief that women don't have buttholes is what convinced me he wasn't trans.
If that was something he truly believed, then he really wasn't paying attention in biology class. If women don't have aynooses, then where does their poop come from? Food goes in, poop comes out. It's seriously not a difficult concept. There's even a potty training book about it called "Everybody Poops".
I think it had more to do with Randy thinking "poop is gross, girls can't possibly be gross". Though I could be wrong, and maybe there is some other asinine reason im forgetting.To this day I still cannot begin to imagine why not having a butthole is a thing in this lore. Is it because ghosts don't eat? It needs an explanation.
