Who the hell researched this?

Apparently cockroaches pass wind every 15 minutes.
Who in their right mind would go to their course director and say that they want to study cockroach farts? And what kind of course director would say "Yeah, ok... sounds good to me"

didn't you hear? cockroach farts are being used as an alternative to fuel cars....
it's very environment friendly and sure to save people a lot of money on gasoline
I think the new car that runs entirely on cockroach gas is coming out in March 2008
I have pre-ordered it
:)

Perhaps the U.S. government is thinking of using cockroach farts as a dispersal method for anthrax spores in Axis of Evil countries. Fill roaches with spores, drop a load of them over Iran or Nth Korea, & wait for them to start farting. Job done.

seems to be that way with all weapons,and the more destructive,the easier they seem to be obtained.
my 2 year old could well be banned under the geneva convention,her nappies/diaper,are lethal.

I agree! Something dreamed up by Blair and Bush probably. To think they may have had some of our top researchers looking into cockroach farting.
Do cockroach farts smell? Or could I keep a couple in a cage, as my own personal eco-friendly fan?!

I've got lots of fans but I've never asked whether they're eco-friendly :D
