I can't answer this really dumb question. But hear me out. I live in poverty. I won't deny it. But my apartment has a bit of a cockroach problem. I
wouldn't say I have kicked in the nest, but...
I have some cockroach poison that I have placed in a few areas. It has been eaten, but none of these tum tablets have been completely devoured yet.
However.... The ones that I see... Or better yet hear.... They seem to be running endlessly. Like... They can't even climb up anything... I have
turned on lights.... Shined the flashlight on them and they have no reaction what so ever. In fact I have smashed a few of them... And they continue
moving no matter what. Each limb continues to move radically. And they still move at the same pace. They continue to run around in circles until they
finally flip themselves over. And they still move radically.
So seeing this behavior, and watching some YouTube videos of random drug addicts caught on film who have had more than they can handle....
I asked myself a dumb question...
What is going on in the cockroaches mind for the two plus hours of it running around and finally #ing dying?
Honestly in my case I have set some tarp on the floor.... Well it is bunched up in a corner, and all I hear is the cockroach endlessly running around
on it. It doesn't stop. It's like a toy hotwheel windup car that never stops going.... Until it stops going.... And since no one gives a # about
this... I figured I'd ask.
Is it desperately trying to find water? Is it going completely mental? Does it make it bite other cockroaches? Do other cockroaches bite back? Is it
suicidal? Is it just asking for death? Has it been hijacked by a bacteria that is trying to take over its entire body so it can Bloom its spores to
infect more cockroaches like that cordyceps pandemic happening to ants in other countries?
Honestly I wonder what they are going through when they eat this #.
I mean I feel like buying a bunch of white tarp, drawing a bunch of squares on it, numbering them individually, and starting a betting website on
where this #er is going to finally.... Stop moving.
One of these days I am going to film this and put it on YouTube... Because the sound these #ers make on the tarp is like none other. It's one of those
head turning sounds. It grabs your attention like a magnetic field suddenly bursting out attracting all of the iron out of the sand all at once.
