    • Cancer Free, The Way to Be January 17, 2008
      More proof that beer is good for you.  Researchers in Germany say that a cancer-fighting substance found in hops could be enhanced to brew a special anti-cancer beer. I don’t think I’ve read a better story all year. I know the year is young, but the only news that could be better would be “Drinking […]
    • Flaming Shot January 10, 2008
      The flaming shot. It’s an amateur move for sure, but it looks cool. The problem is that a lot of people don’t know how to take this shot. They can make it, and light it on fire and that’s where their “smartness” ends. Example 1 This dude is not smart. And the chick that says […]

      We all love beer right? RIGHT!? Well not only is beer delicious and good for you, but it can be used for all sorts of things that aren’t drinking related. Here is the story.

    • A Drink a Day Keeps the Doctor Away January 3, 2008
      Health benefits from alcohol? Damn right! According to scientists (not just random drunk people anymore), alcohol in moderation is actually good for you. They say that one alcoholic drink a day will help with all kinds of stuff. Your heart Your pancreas Your Joints Your over all health Sometimes I like to combine 2 weeks […]
    • About Bloody Time January 2, 2008
      After a night of hard drinking you will wake up either drunk or hung-over. Being drunk is not the problem, it’s the coming down from being drunk and being hung-over that is the problem. The solution; a Bloody Mary. There are 3 types of morning drinkers. There is the person who drinks a Bloody Mary, a […]
    • DWI of the Year January 1, 2008
      Here at Don’t Eat the Worm we don’t condone drinking and driving. It is a dumb and reckless move that can cost not only you your life but an innocent person. (Not saying you’re guilty.) BUT Meagan Harper is now a god in DWI/DUI circles. She was busted in Oregon with a .55 BAC. The […]

Live on the scene…

I had to drive my mom to the doctors office today. When I got to her house the news was on and they were talking about hurricane Dean. I really wasn’t paying attention because I don’t really care about hurricanes or the weather. But then they switched over to the unlucky guy that has to stand in the middle of the storm and try to report on it.


Why does this guy have to stand in the middle of a fucking storm for us to know it’s bad? Most of us can tell by the damn satallite pictures that look like a girl had her period all over the tv screen, red EVERYWHERE. This guy reminded me of Heather Holloway from the end of the movie Thank You For Smoking.

It’s not just the weather that this happens with, it’s everything.

  • A guy is arrested and they need to have a guy standing in front of the jail.
  • Story on planes? They do it at the airport.
  • School shooting? Let’s send someone to stand right in front of the school sign.

Just sit behind a desk and tell me about the story damnit. I don’t want to see you struggling to stand up in 900 mph winds. I don’t want to see some douche bag on his cell phone waving to his family behind you. Just give me the news.

  1. Good Call, I always wondered that myself. One day I’d like to see one of those reporters thrown like 20 feet by the wind. Now that would be entertaining.

  2. I think the whole “stand in a hurricane” bit is just the “initiation part” of joining a news team…it’s either that or shower naked with the 45-year old anchors, and be forced to shave their balls…I’ll take the hurricane thanks.

  3. Brock – I think that’s the appeal in all of that…I’m sure the anchor people secretly take bets to see if the “on the scene” reporter falls over or not…

    Romi – I’d rather be jobless and homeless than do either of those…

  4. i am thinking they offer them “bonus pay” and then just pray that the hurricane takes them to Oz or something. Sucks when the reporter survives. you know that dude is PISSED!

  5. i half fucking agree with you and half think you’re fucking wrong. unless being at the fucking scene adds something to the story skip it – of course if you want to talk to people who might have seen whatever it is that happened you kind of need to go to where the news is – fires, crash sites, etc. reporters do need to go to find out what the fuck happened. the weather thing is just stupid though.
