    I did not know that!




    Did you know that when cockroaches scamper when you turn the light on it isn't because of the light? It is because they are VERY sensitive to air currents and the movement of your hand causes air to move. The nearby roaches feel it, run, then a stampede effect takes place by the time the light comes on.

    Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.
