Cockroaches are notoriously difficult to kill. There is even the legend that they can withstand nuclear bombs, such as the fame of these incredible insects, since they can withstand 2,000x more radiation than we humans.
Science already knows that they can live for several weeks even with their heads off. Concerned with the incredible resilience of these insects, a Taiwanese woman “has slipped a bit” in an attempt to eliminate a cockroach.
The cleaner, who did not have the name given to preserve her image, went to work in a branch office in Chungli, Zongli district, when she came across a cheap and did not hesitate to act fiercely.
She managed to reach the cockroach with a shoe, then took it with a tissue paper. After that, the maid threw the cockroach into the toilet and mixed several flammable products, setting fire to the “mix.” The amount of flammable products was so great that the vessel exploded completely in seconds. Even after the explosion, she did not seem to be concerned about the fact, just trying to make sure the cockroach was dead.
It has not been disclosed whether it will be required to respond legally for its dangerous action or whether it will have to pay for the huge material damages generated.
This super weird name is the definition for cockroach phobias. Many who suffer from the problem have suffered some kind of trauma in childhood or pre-adolescence, where they have had contact with these insects.
In extreme cases, it is necessary to follow up with a specialized therapist as well as psychiatric support to control the symptoms that cause great distress to the patients.
