    Let's not jump to conclusions until the autopsy
    report comes out.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2214879

    As noted by the expert, there are no toxins
    in cockroaches or related insects. I'm
    inclined to suspect drugs may have been
    involved. Or pink slime. Or peanut butter
    made from regraded segregation 3 peanuts.
    I've eaten thousands of insects and they
    haven't hurt me.

    He was said to have asked on RFC whether some food he had found in his
    fridge was still good, after being past the expiration date, and left out on
    his counter overnight. He couldn't make heads or tails of the conflicting
    responses, so he went for it . . .

    This sounds very familiar. I'm having some deja vu.

    I hope scientists will learn something new about insects from the
    investigation.

    Reminds me of Steve Irwin too. RIP Mr. Irwin.

    I figure that anyone who would eat freakin' cockroaches would have to
    be on drugs.

    They were farm raised, organic, free range, pesticide free
    cockroaches.

    My guess is that he croaked from a heart attack and roaches had nothing
    to do with it.

    I wonder how his friend feels. Considering the dead guy was there
    trying to win the python so he could give/sell it to his friend.

    Shade-grown, one hopes. Roaches never did like bright lights.

    I wonder who got custody of the snake? The friend didn't even have
    time to pay for it, so technically it should go to the next of kin -
    who probably doesn't want it. But probably also doesn't want to give
    it to the friend that killed him. And the friend shouldn't take it
    anyway since it was the snake that killed his friend.

    I tell ya - that friend sounds like a real asshole! ;-)

    That may be. But even in my youth I was willing to accept the
    hypothetical eating of a glass of **** for enough money - even on
    national television. When I was young I was naive. I thought if the
    magic million dollar turd were ever offered that only a few would show
    up. I know today the line of would-be **** eaters would extend around
    the world. Times are that tough.

    I would do just about anything disgusting - just suck it up and
    deal with it, it's not going to last forever - but still, having
    already admitted that for enough money I'd gladly eat a glass of ****
    on national tv, at the same time the thought of eating a large living
    cockroach really gives me the creeps. I'm not saying I couldn't
    handle it or wouldn't do it, only that it would be tougher for me than
    eating an 8 ounce glass of human ****, which too would be disgusting.
    Even though not toxic, the ugliness of a living cockroach exceeds that
    of the average human turd. In my opinion. And no blindfold wearing,
    that is a no no.
