Oh, this brings back memories. When I was in the ninth grade there was a junior that would eat a roach at each pep rally. The football team, which had a long, proud history of losing spectacularly, would vow to win the upcoming game. The band would play, cheerleaders would cartwheel around, the cadet would make tough guy poses and grimaces, drop the roach in his mouth and we, the student body, would leap to our feet to stomp, clap,and cheer. The football team would still lose, but the guy didn't really give up on them until the game when the cheerleaders made a giant paper sign for the team to run through. They couldn't run through the sign. They ran into it, backed up, ran into, and finally, ran around it. Later, some of the players complained it was the cheerleaders' fault because they weren't holding the paper sign correctly. He said there was too much slack in the sign for the team to break through it. And that was the end of bug eating at the pep rallies. I was sad. It's still one of my favorite memories.

Oh, and a couple of years after I'd graduated from high school, roach eating guy hired me to work in the college cafeteria where he worked as an assistant manager. I wouldn't have gotten through college without that job.

Remember. Only clash your mandibles over good, clean chiton. Eschew dessicated exoskeletons.

I saw my first roach at a Holiday Inn.
 
2012-10-08 09:43:07 PM
I wonder what specifically killed him?

I'm going with either sharp exoskeletal parts punctured his insides or one of the bugs were poisonous.
 
2012-10-08 09:43:18 PM
I was so hoping they were marijuana roaches...

It's a little bit creepy to watch knowing that a few minutes after the video was shot, he was dead. He was trying so hard to keep from puking. I'm thinking that maybe if he had puked it all up when his body wanted to, he might be alive today.

If he was regurgitating all the bugs he might have aspirated some and choked to death.
This is one of the more bizzare set of circumstances I have heard about. Truly deserving of the Florida tag.The use of the bare-chested mugshot in the story is the crowning touch.
Many years ago before I had ever heard of Fark I remember coming to the conclusion that the strangest news stories I heard all seemed to come from Florida. Upon discovering Fark I was pleasantly surprised to see my observation validated.

Roaches check in, but they don't check out!

Immediately after eating dozens of roaches and worms, Edward Archbold, 32, said he wasn't feeling well and began to regurgitate, according to the sheriff's office.

Well, I guess these roaches did check out, sorta.

Maybe his death was a coincidence. Link

But most of all, this phase is about teaching wilderness survival. You'll be trained to eat bugs and snakes, and live off the land.

I have to say this cartoon, in this context, is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time.

It's just as well. We all know he was gonna eat the snake.

"Evening, Mr. Pratt..."

I love Creepshow -- remember sneaking into the theater to see it when it came out (didn't actually sneak in, but rather bought a ticket for another movie and went in to see it instead). Thanks for reminding me to put it in my Netflix queue again for this halloween.

What is SFAS? Sorry, for my ignorance, but I'm a life-long civilian.

It is also possible that some (many? all?) of the roaches he ate had already ingested some type of roach killer, in which case this poor dumbass may have died of poisoning.

/Shiat like this really bugs me. ;)

Hopefully he died of something else, which would make this a truly funny story.

I'm not sure why, but it would.

Maybe he died from ingesting something before the competition which took the edge off eating roaches.
Like bath salts.

Yep, roaches are the one and only thing I refuse to eat.

Special Forces Assessment and Selection. Psychological and physical testing to your limits and beyond... Cockroach buffet is optional. Those that pass (and stay with their unit for a certain time) are nicknamed Snake Eaters. Some like the term, some don't.

Figured you didn't know the snake eater part which actually made the analogy more funny considering the prize he won... before he died.
