"Roaches are not known to be unsafe to eat".... that's because no-one's been stupid enough to eat them alive before.:headshake:

Have you ever watched Man v Food? The Americans have a very unhealthy relationship with eating competitions.

This will probably be in the next series!

The picture looks like Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches. These are big bug-gers.
They're normally sold as pets, not as pet food. xx(

Something tells me that there is a lot of fearce competion to be nominated for the 'Darwin Awards'
Why would anyone want to drink Liquid Nitrogen. She's stuffed up her life!

Least she's keeping up the British end.
I don't think the plan was to drink the liquid nitrogen. You're meant to let it evaporate before you drink it. It's just a step up from those that drink Flaming Sambucas before waiting for the flames to die down.

It shouldn't have been there in the first place... the bar owner and the bar steward should be strung up. I assume she didn't know what was in it, if she did then she too is an idiot.

I think she did know it was there. The cocktails were advertised on the bar's facebook page. Teenagers do stupid things particularly in university towns. Unfortunately for this poor girl, it has had tragic consequences but I'm sure most of us did stupid things as a teenager.

A slightly different thing, but having seen/heard about the excessive fretting for licensing in particular respect for selling of alcohol this story just seems unbelievable.

This. Quite a lot of them are entered to in fun, but unfortunately you do hear about the odd one that goes spectacularly wrong (and it's not just food competitions either).

The next challenge will be the Man v Food presenter to eat a WHOLE plateful of SALAD, followed by a small APPLE.

Tough one - I don't think he could do it. :stop:
