All around me are familiar faces... [Jul. 30th, 2008|05:07 pm]

[mood |soresore]
[music |Mad World]

Cockroaches can flatten themselves almost to the thinness of a piece of paper in order to slide into tiny cracks, can be frozen for weeks and then thawed with no ill effect, and cal also withstand 126 g's of pressure with no problem. ( People get squished at 18 g's.)

I really hope that's a flawed fact.. but something tells me it's not. *whimper*
And Iraq pictures to the song Mad World.

I thought it was moving in most parts, and honest. I know we have a lot of very varied feelings on Iraq for those assembled here, but I do support the troops as a whole. There's bad sorts in every single group out there. I don't think we can judge all the military based on the scumbags that are killing puppies and attacking civillians, just as we can't judge Muslims based on the attack of the Twin Towers. Etc. So I will take no flack for posting it. From either side. lol. I mean.. you can give it. I won't unfriend you. But I'll give you hell back. :)

Also, how did ya'll not tell me how addicting freakin' Facebook is. I got one for my real life persona.. and now I think I need to make a Random one as well. I'm spending way too much time online all ready.

Computer not letting me see stuff from the link (it gets like this sometimes, so I'll try again later), but yeah, even though I get annoyed because nobody can give me a definition of 'winning' in this situation, so I don't understand why we're fighting a war, I worry about the troops and hope they stay safe.

Facebook can be addicting. If you do get a Random one, will you let us know so we can be friends?

I started as an admin in the office and got used to coming to work to find all manner of bug, insect and pest on my desk. :) The guys told me they were helping me study for my license..... :D

My boss also had us watch every movie with pests he could find on video (this was the 80s) at lunch time.

A barrel of laughs every day.

They can also go months without food, live for weeks without a head, and are resistant to radiation. Roachman would kick Spiderman's ass!

Maybe Facebook is the brainchild of an evil genius who wants us all distracted so he can take over the world! There are so many things to keep up with on it that sometimes it seems like work. Too bad I can't get paid for it. ;)

Cockroaches really are a massively well-adapted species. They run faster than a cheetah, when you take their size into account.

But I don't care how incredible they are. They may be nature's greatest evolutionary miracles, but they're still just a disgusting species of beetle, and my only regret is that I can't buy enough poison to kill all of them.

Don't they find ways to evolve out of being killed by poison? Ugh.

Unfortunately they always do seem to. Towards the end, the ones in my last apartment were drinking the bug spray I bought like soda.

Oh, vomit! I can't stand roaches! We had one climb out of the drain in our laundry room, and I freaked out. I can handle snakes, rodents, all kinds of things, but huge spiders and roaches: Do NOT want!

I've only just started doing something with my Facebook account; I still haven't figured everything out there yet.

Ugh. Bugs of any sort. I'm okay with tiny spiders, but I had a huge fracking one crawl over my arm in my bedroom the other night. Like huge and black and thick limbs. I screamed and ran out of te room jumping up and down and crying. UGH.

And yeah I'm still learning the ropes.

oh darling, I feel your pain! I fear virtually nothing in life but spiders. My son has to do recon in pet stores before I'll go in them, to see if they have tarantulas. When I went on a trail ride in Vegas, the guide made the mistake of telling me it was "tarantula migrating season" - yeah, not the most relaxing horseback ride I've ever had! Big ones, little ones - all must die. I'll live with the consequences.
