What The Bug Is Wrong With You?

I will never understand why people do the dumbest shit and then wonder why they feel like an idiot afterwards.  If you’re fortunate enough you will live long enough to regret your decisions and hopefully learn from them.  If not you will end up like this guy:Roacheating.jpg

This is a picture of 32 year old Edward Archbold, who entered a competition at a pet shop in Deerfield Beach, Florida to win an exotic Python.  What was the competition you ask?  Well it was a mere simple act of eating as much live worms and cockroaches as you could.  Sounds like an amazing way to spend an afternoon right?  Well it wasn’t.  The whole event had a very bitter sweet ending for Archbold.  The sweet?  He won the competition.  The bitter?  He kinda died before he could get his prize.

After beating out a bunch of other complete idiots Edward collapsed in front of the pet shop at which point he was raced to the nearest hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Now don’t get me wrong, pythons are cool and they kick ass, and everyone loves to win shit, BUT seriously was it worth eating live bugs and losing your life in the process?  Understandably, he never thought he would die from it and to be fair it is still unclear what actually caused this young man to suddenly die, but that aside, WHO THE HELL DOES THIS??

You want a Python that bad?  Save your damn money and buy one.  Want to get a Python for free to sell to your friend?  Go out to the damn everglades and catch one.   People do all sorts of crazy shit that I will never understand and this ranks near the top somewhere between having sex with animals and this:

    Heard this, how stupid, poor family. A good while back, some fella out west entered a contest where drinking mass quantities of water was the goal. He died too. WTF man.

  2. Cassie says:

    Really, WTF? People astound me and that pic with the piercing – guessing he’s not getting much kissing action cuz ouch.

    A young man died locally after being involved in a cake eating competition in a local pub … they were just cakes but killed him, Really why would anyone do that? Very sad waste of life x

    • Hey, “Talkin’ Shit” –> yeah, that is something! Also, I recall you “like boobies”, take a look at sunshinefactor.wordpress.com today and you’ll see a kinda weird story, the audacity of that school teacher! Debb

    I have a wonderful philosophy – You can do whatever you want but you must take your punch…

  5. Ew, that picture at the end, I’m blinded! But seriously, what the F? That’s sad he died doing such a stupid and disgusting thing. Oh, people.

  6. Krista says:

    How did the bugs kill him? Just the quantity or was it some kind of germ/disease factor? What a waste of a life.

    • Nick says:

      Thank you for the read and comment! They are not sure what the cause of death was yet, but they are doing a full autopsy to determine what happened. Some have speculated that he might have had some kind of allergy to the insects.
