Posted By:Hazymac, 10/9/2012 12:30:14 PM

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fl - A West Palm Beach man died Friday after he won a roach-eating contest held by a reptile store in Broward County. Edward Archbold, 32, died Friday shortly before midnight. He had collapsed in front of the Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach, where he had taken part in the contest. Archbold and several other people signed up to eat a variety of insects for a chance to win a python. Archbold ate dozens of roaches and worms, and was declared the winner of the challenge. Shortly after the contest ended, Archbold said he wasn't

This guy was definately a "Winner"!!! Had previous conviction for indecent exposure, etc. But not to worry, they named the python he would have won after him in his honor.

Seriously, these people are sick.

FTA: ''Archbold and several other people signed up to eat a variety of insects for a chance to win a python.''

While this is a tragic (sic) story, it would only seem fair that since Archbold won, his carcass should be fed to the python. No waste & nature reclaims its own. [Makes as much sense as the contest].

Uhmmmm.... aren't pythons now taking over the Everglades and killing all the local wildlife?

Back in college, during an altered state, I won a bet by swallowing a goldfish. Looking back, I can't remember what I won in the bet but I can STIll recall how that slimy thing felt swimming down my throat...ewww.

On a related note, my dad was in the same fraternity with a now deceased (and very famous) celebrity San Francisco lawyer who used to make money by swallowing spiders and moths...double ewwww.

Biased sensationalized reporting. He died AFTER eating roaches - not necessarily FROM eating roaches.

Hunter says he was

A Lake Wales hunter says he was attacked by a Florida panther while he was calling turkeys near Lake Kissimmee in Central Florida. If true, it would be the first recorded panther attack on a human since the 1800s. Unfortunately, say state biologists, the hunter waited three weeks to report it. That means they cannot verify that it occurred. His wounds are nearly healed, and rain that has fallen since the attack has obscured any paw prints the animal may have left behind. Still, Byron Maharrey is sure about what pounced on him from behind and left him scratched and

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Bill Haas shot a 4-under 68 to lead the Masters on Thursday, the first time he´s headed a major at the end of a round. The son of longtime PGA Tour player Jay Haas broke 70 for the first time in five Augusta National appearances. The 31-year-old American started the tournament with a bogey, but bounced back to knock in six birdies on a warm, sunny day when only three other players got into the 60s. The last two Masters winners, defending champion Adam Scott of Australia and 2012 winner Bubba Watson of the U.S., were both

An alleged hit man who killed for more than 30 years across the country has been charged with murder in the deaths of nine men in California, prosecutors announced Tuesday. Eight of the killings allegedly carried out by Jose Manuel Martinez, a self-described enforcer for a Mexican drug cartel, occurred in the Central Valley and one in Santa Barbara County. The victims were found by ranchers in fields and alongside country roads, according to the Tulare County district attorney´s office. One man was shot to death in his bed in Pixley while his four young children were at home. Martinez,

Car-tipping? Vandals upend ultra-compact

Urbanites have apparently found an answer to rural California´s long nefarious history of cow-tipping. A group of men in San Francisco have allegedly taken to car-tipping. Three Smart cars were "tipped over" late Sunday or early Monday, local media reported. The pint-sized, two-door coupes were either set on their hind quarters or tipped completely over. The feat of upending a car listed at roughly 1,800 pounds may take more muscle than merely pushing over a snoozing cow, but the vandals also appeared to know what they were doing, according to one witness. Brandon Michael told KGO-TV that he stepped outside

For the first time since 1997, the pre-tournament buzz at the Masters is not all about Tiger Woods. Yet here he is in the opening sentence. Augusta National and, especially, CBS expressed their regret at Woods´s withdrawal because of back surgery. A moment of silence. Now on with the show. (Snip) The forecast says "mostly sunny" all week, with highs around 80. The greens by the weekend should be historically firm and fast, unlike the past two years. That favors more experienced players, who know the nuances and subtleties not just of the putts, but of where to land approach

ST. PETERSBURG — Nearly 100 environmental activists rallied Wednesday on the southeast corner of Williams Park, directly across the street from the company they were protesting: Duke Energy. The event was a collaboration among numerous groups, including the Sierra Club and Awake Pinellas. The alliance calls itself the Sunshine State Clean Energy Coalition. With more than 5,000 petitions calling for Duke to invest more in clean energy, they accused the utility of dragging its feet on alternative energy since it took over in Pinellas County and other parts of the state. “Use the power of the sun,” Sierra Club spokesman

After criticizing President Obama throughout his second term, I´ve reversed course and decided that he´s a tremendous leader, one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history. Perfection is too high of a bar to set for any man, or any president, but Obama has come close to clearing it. What stands between this president and Mount Rushmore? Republicans—specifically, the stubborn extremists who control the House under the weak leadership of Speaker John Boehner. Gridlock, hyper-partisanship, and ineffective governance, those traits that make Washington so unpopular with voters, are singularly the fault of the GOP. It is not Obama´s fault; none

There’s an old joke told among petty criminals in Manila, where suspects are routinely intimidated by the cops till they confess. (Snip) The pro-life demonstrators holding up their poster can be forgiven for thinking they were still in America. After all they had crossed no marked boundaries. So they thought it was alright to peaceably assemble. But in reality they had wandered into the precincts of some strange tribe where such things are not tolerated; a kind of Twilight Zone; a place governed by mysterious customs, prey to obscure taboos and worshipping some monstrous, unnamed idol. Everything was different there.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
