Eeeks! Cockroach!


I don't hate a lot of things or people but I can tell you this. I hate cockroaches! Of all the creatures God made, I rank cockoaches as the absolute worst! Especially those disgusting wankers that fly. The moment I see one spread it wings, time just stops and I freeze in fear. And once the fella takes flight, I'm out of there faster than the Flash!

But you know, I thought it'll be fun to list some facts about cockroaches. I don't know exactly how it'll be fun but I'm hoping you're having your lunch now. LOL! I got these facts off Squidoo...


- Crushed cockroaches when applied to a wound, can help ease the sting. 
If someone applies that to me, I swear I'll knock all their teeth out!

- Cockroaches have white blood. 
So the white goo that oozes out of their smashed bodies is blood. All the while I thought it's their intestines! Gross!

- Cockroaches can live a month without food, but only a week without water.
No wonder these bastards are still alive and dinosaurs aren't!

- A roach can live a week without a head. It dies after a week due to lack of water.
Just thinking of a headless cockroach gives me the creeps!

- Some female cockroaches mate once and are pregnant for the rest of their lives!
Hmm...this reminds me of some people...

- Most roaches have the ability to fly, but not all do.
Holy shit! Noooo!!!! I was told that only the males fly! WTH man!

- Fried Cockroaches are common snacks in Cambodia, as are spiders and rats
That's just gross!!

- The world's largest roach (which lives in South America) is six inches long with a one-foot wingspan.
Have I told you how much I love Singapore?

- Male cockroaches transfer sperm to females in a "gift-wrapped" package called a spermatophore. Some males cover the package in a protein-rich wrapping that the female can eat to obtain nutrients to raise her young.
This sounds like something the Japanese would do. I'm just saying!

  1. I have witnessed your disdain for roaches first hand so may I add that it really is funny to have a grown man almost leap for his life and not have his feet grounded on the floor in fear that the roach might creep up his legs?
