Things Roaches and Humans Have In Common

Introduction:There's very few people on the planet who hold endearment for roaches. Yet, as strange as it may seem, roaches and people have many things in common. Here are five things that may be an eye-opener for the average person's ego.

  • 01

    Roaches and People Both Try to Evade Capture

    For anyone who's chased after a roach, it's not so easy catching them. When people are confronted by reporters, they will usually make a dash in the opposite direction at high speed. A person may be dead wrong with their past or present action(s)but very few will own up to them.

  • 02

    Roaches and People Are Attracted to the Smell of Food

    Roaches will usually surface when they smell food; which is usually when they end up getting killed. The same is true with people. The smell of hamburgers and french fries will put the average American into a weird trance. All too often people will risk their lives just to get to the nearest drive thru.

  • 03

    Roaches and People Have Boundary Issues

    Roaches don't care if you don't want them in your house; and once there in, they are very hard to get rid of. Relatives, in-laws and friends are often the same way. They'll come to your house uninvited and will stay there, until you find a way to get rid of them.

  • 04

    Roaches and People Are Both Judged on Their Appearance

    Although roaches play an important role in nature as scavengers, people have no compassion for them when they get close to their shoes. Most people automatically show a look of disgust when they only see a picture of one. They're brown, with long waving antennae, and scraggly legs.

    If roaches looked more like butterflies, it's possible that less of them would end up getting squashed! The same is true with people. Although everyone has an important role to play in this life, the majority of people in the world more likely than not will bash an unattractive person before they do it to someone who's good-looking.

  • 05

    Roaches and People Respond to Scent Trails

    Roaches use scent trails as a way of communication to find food sources and to find each other. For people who bathe in perfume or cologne, they definitely leave scent trails behind. Most people can tell when someone has entered the room just by using their sense of smell. They probably could even track all of their movements step-by-step even after they have left the building two hours beforehand.

    Clever list. I once lived in Samoa many years ago. The roaches were so big, you could put a saddle on them and ride home.
