32- year- old Florida native Edward Archibald made national news recently when he entered a competition to win a free python from a local pet store. Basically, whoever could eat the most roaches and worms won the snake... and Ed was the big winner after eating "dozens" of roaches and worms. We'd congratulate him but before he could claim his slithery prize, he died... after eating dozens of roaches and worms. Then there's Felix Baumgartner, the Red Bull skydiver who, today, was gonna jump out of a balloon 23 miles above the Earth. His plan was to freefall for 22 of the 23 miles in an effort to break the sound barrier. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your perspective, due to weather conditions, the jump/ fall had to be cancelled today. Most of us have no plans to freefall 22 miles or eat roaches and worms, but it doesn't mean we haven't attempted something incredibly stupid just to be able to brag about it later. That's what we wanted to talk about today: WHAT GENIUS IDEA DID YOU TRY AND WHO WERE YOU TRYING TO IMPRESS?
