This is a video explaining why cockroaches are so hard to squash, and how scientists are studying them to build better robots. I don’t like cockroaches or robots, so this is all just terrible news to me. Also, why the hell is a cockroach squashing machine a real thing? Can you believe that’s somebody’s job? PETA is going to have a field day with this.
Did you know cockroaches can squeeze through holes less than a third their body height? That makes me hate them even more. That also might explain why there are so many in my kitchen. You ever barefoot stepped on a cockroach in the middle of the night on your way to the fridge for some chocolate milk? I need to accept that my place is a shithole.
Hit the jump for everything you didn’t care to know about roaches.
