What makes cockroaches so tough?
« on: 13/11/2008 17:04:05 »
Hi,
 
Humans have walked on the moon, made atomic weapons and conquered many awful diseases.  ;) 
 
But alas the mighty cockroach continues to reign in spite of our best efforts to eliminate the little beasty
 
You can put him the vacuum of outer space, or subject him to microwaves that would kill a human in a flash. You can starve the little monsters until only ten or so remain, they will hide out eat each other to survive until there is only one male and female left.
 
He just shrugs all this off and continues bright eyed and bushy tailed happy in his urgent task of spreading disease and sorrow amongst poor suffering humanity
 
We think we have victory over him but we are always wrong because  the depraved evil little are making love like no human lovers could,  deep within the recesses of our kitchen cupboards.
 
A billion. billion roach babies every day and still their reprobate leaders are still not happy.
 
So one night we switch on the kitchen light and what do we see, Oh ! "My God looooook ten thousand, thousand, filthy cockroaches defiling our food, and eating everything in sight.
 
So the eternal war between light and dark , cockroach and man continues on and on into the eternal future that has no end .
 
Take hands all humanity we must eliminate this awful threat before it eliminates us. 
 
"There is still time"

I can't remember the last time I saw one, but anyway, do you really think we are trying to eliminate them, or just keep the numbers under control and keep (most of) them out of our houses?
We put a lot of effort into going to the moon. Cockroaches are not worth that much trouble.
