Mutant super-cockroaches from space

From NewScientist:

The reality of science fiction is alive and well my friends. I read in NewScientist that the Russians have been studying cockroaches that were hatched in space and brought back to Earth. Weird things doth now commence! According to the Russian studies: Baby cockroaches conceived aboard a satellite in September have apparently grown up to be faster and tougher than their terrestrial brethren. Apparentlythey grew more quickly than ordinary Earth-bred cockroaches.

There is no indication yet on whether any of the 33 new super-roaches have yet attempted to destroy the Earth,

Oh man! I hope those cockroaches don't escape. Regular roaches are already tough little buggers.

ewwwwuh yes Ada! But I have to laugh, it reminded me of that Carlos Mencia skit where the cockroaches take over the bathroom. and the comic that used to joke about Harlem roaches...He said that in Harlem they don't worry about earthquakes like they do in California.... Seee the Harlem roaches are so bad that if there were an earthquake there and the building moved...the roaches would move it back... It was funny then, but now...they probably could with these bad boys!
