The mutterings of a rubber chicken

Blinded me with science

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I came across the following mindnumbing fact today. It's been intriguing me all day and, in the end, I just had to share.

A cockroach breaks wind every 15 minutes.

Now, my question is, how the hell do they know that?

Is there a scientific study on cockroach flatus somewhere? Did they assign some poor PhD student to sit there with a counter?

And how do they know when a cockroach breaks wind?

Is it audible? Do they measure gaseous levels in a chamber?

And is this hazardous work? Do you get danger money?

Could this be a new career opportunity?

So many questions and, darn it, I want answers!

Dear god, you may have discovered the source of global warming! Or at least the aroma in any Florida bar after 2am.

this is going to be the start of an international catch phrase.

"that'll have as much impact as a cocroach's fart."
