I accidentally happened to see a severely smashed cockroach yesterday morning. It was still not dead! I concentrated on other daily chores, only to find that even in the evening, it was alive! I sensed some paranormal phenomena going on in my room, and was afraid that I'm doomed to be avenged by the cockroach's spirit! Next day, a random search on the Internet presented me before a startling revelation! I read an article of the reputed Scientific American, discussing the truth behind the survival of a cockroach for at least a week, even after its head is smashed! Bravo! What amazing endurance power a few insects have. Weirdest and funny, as these facts appear to be, they stand as a testimony to the miraculous and mystic nature of life.
