    Wow, that is incredible. Who would ever think of something so dumb. I wouldn't send a dog in the mail.

    You would think of at least having a knife to get out in case you got lost in the mail, which was the second dumb thing, or at least poking a hole...

    I really think this takes the Grand Prize.

    Not only did this guy get himself killed, he may have spent a few bucks doing so. Ghillie suits, apparently, are not cheap.

    They say it wasn't cause and effect, but one has to wonder.

    After downing more than 20 giant creepy-crawlies [cokroaches], Archbold vomited, collapsed and died.
    Investigators with the Broward Sheriff’s Office are awaiting an autopsy report to determine what killed him.
    Not to mock the dead, but may I hazard a guess . . .

    From the medical/pathology angle I find this one really interesting. What will they find as the cause? There was mention of super worms. My son's lizard (a bearded dragon) eats mostly crickets but also some meal worms. The larger ones from the pet store are labeled "super worms" and they have some sort of pincers that I learned about while picking one up to put in the aquarium. Maybe he downed some of those live and they chewed through his stomach wall? Seems unlikely as he died at the scene, I believe, and with a perforated ulcer you have a good bit of time, often hours, before the surgeon is truly behind the 8-ball.

    OK, I just threw up a little, in my mouth. I assumed he chewed them up - did he swallow them whole?! If so, he absolutely gets this year's Darwin Award!! :shock:

    I suspect some toxic substance in the bugs.
