People do some crazy and dangerous things for ‘clicks’ and likes. Remember what happened to THIS guy the next time some stupid stunt comes along.
He is known only by his last name, ‘Sun’.
He’s a Chinese vlogger whose video channel had some 15,000 followers. In previous videos he had been drinking heavily and eating mealworms.
It was a homespun version of that old show ‘Fear Factor’ where people eat horrible things. His version has him spinning a wheel, and eating whatever comes up.
As part of the stunt he would spin a wheel marked with items including centipedes, geckos, mealworms, vinegar, eggs, beer and baijiu – a clear distilled liquor.
He would drink or eat the item the spin lands on in front of the camera, according to the Xinan Evening News.
It turns out, his final meal involved eating centipedes and live geckos.
Sun collapsed while the stream was still being broadcast and police later found his camera was still running when his body was found.
Be careful copying dumb stunts from the internet. They may have some unwanted consequences. If he’d bothered to do any research, he would have learned that someone had tried eating a gecko before.
In Australia, a man died horribly from the same thing. One headline read, “Man who died allegedly after eating gecko on dare had ‘rotted from inside,’ family says”.
That’s a pretty big red flag, there.
Reptiles can be a cause of human salmonella despite appearing healthy and clean. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend keeping reptiles around children younger than 5, or those with weakened immune systems and older adults. It also advises keeping reptiles and their equipment out of the kitchen or any place where food is prepared, served or consumed.
“Don’t kiss or snuggle with reptiles and amphibians because this can increase your risk of getting sick,” the CDC said. “Persons who think they might have become ill from contact with reptiles should talk to a health care provider.” Source: Fox
