ENGS002 #005 : Nooooooo!

Saturday, July 7, 2012

It's brown (both dark and light).

It's an insect.

It has wings.
(Some can fly, but others can't.
The flying ones are the scariest.)

It's not "good-looking" but get more screaming girls than Coco Martin on Walang Hanggan.

It's not a heartthrob, but both men and women chase after them frantically.

It doesn't have super powers, but it can be everywhere at the same time.

It looks like Pili nuts - especially when seen in the morning after a deep sleep.

It doesn't squeak or bark but it can be stronger than an alarm clock.


It cause catastrophic events such as preventing someone in particular to go to the toilet and get relief.


WHAT IS IT?




Answer: Yes, it's a roach.

As a tribute to my "best" (ehemm) friend, Mr. Roach, here are some fascinating facts to further spark your interest (again, ehemm) on this "marvelous" insect. (Someone pass me a bucket! *pukes*)

1. Cockroaches can eat just about anything, and can survive without food for long periods of time.
2. Cockroaches like to be touched. (SERIOUSLY?! That is like, the WEIRDEST fact EVER.)
3. Cockroaches can live for weeks without their heads.
4. Cockroaches can be conditioned, just like Pavlov's dogs. (REALLY?!)

I don't know about you guys, but no matter how awesome cockroaches are, I wouldn't want to see them all over the place, especially in toilets, bedrooms, and kitchens. I still believe them to be dirty no matter how other sites/books explain it (no offence, Mr. Roach) and I don't think my view about them will change. Most people aren't afraid of it, but they are disgusted, and anything disgusting is best avoided.

So thank you, roach experts, but no thank you!

Other thoughts : If roaches can be trained or conditioned... perhaps I'll befriend one of them and appoint him as general. Then again, I;d have to get over my fear of them first! Ugh, eww!
