Q: Are cockroaches in China evolving really fast?

Ten years ago, roaches were big. And you might have had 2 or 3 to deal with in your apartment each week.

 

But in the past few years the big roaches have gone. Everywhere seems to be covered in hundreds of baby roaches. My kitchen in GZ certainly is. As I type this I have one doing a qukasncldhe .rgjc;wi fb dash across my keyboard.

 

Missed the bugger.

 

Serious question.

 

Are roaches becoming smaller but more numerous where you live?

I think your apartment, or somewhere close to it - under the floof or in the walls maybe - is ground zero. The mothership. You see hundreds of little baby roaches but from your apartment they probably spread to other apartments, take up residence there and grow.

 

If you're seeing hundreds of baby roaches pity the poor woman living downstairs from you who is seeing hundreds of big bastards and freaking out every time.

 

Haha, if you didn't get on with your neighbours that would be a nasty low down way to feck with them... breed baby roaches. devil

There must be  some cooking recipe ... somewhere ...

 

Stew with loads of veggie and potato squares comes to my 'hungry  mind'.

 

Don't forget to add chopped melanzane .. and few whole almonds .. to preserve crunchiness ... of the meal ... O2 .. I can't breathe .

 

You have warm weather year around, so stop complaining! There are no roaches in Harbin, but they do -40*C for 6-months of the year.

You should see roaches in S. Fla... They are so big, they 'read' newspapers.

 

Box some Raddichio and make miniature Zoo ... in your kitchen!

It must be your neighbors. You all need to lay some poisen down together and get rid of them once and for all. Been living in my apartment for five years and have never seen one but then again I am a bit of a cleaning fanatic.

I mostly see the baby ones and only a few big ones, because I assume people kill most of them before they grow too big. But I recently saw a big one fly into my apartment through the balcony. Are they finally learning to use their wings??

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
