Today I was talking to my younger brother, and he told me that he could microwave a cockroach for 40 seconds without harming it. Pretty impressive. I mean, the cockroach surving is impressive. My brother having that much free time is not impressive. I told him to learn Linux if he has the time.

Of course, I'd never do a thing like this. I'm too nice of a person to microwave a cockroach. (Or, perhaps, I'm too afraid of them to catch a live one.)

If there were a nuclear war an only the cockroaches survived, would they grow to be our size and have opposable thumbs after a number of millenia??
