Silver’s question of the week
What would be more likely to survive a nuclear explosion - cockroaches or pickled onions?
After the sacrifice of many cockroaches in the name of science, radiologists have discovered that the American variety of these hard-core bugs can withstand 67,500 rems of radiation (a rem is a unit of effective absorbed radiation in tissue), whereas German cockroaches can survive between 90,000 and 105,000 rems, probably due to a severe sunbathing regime which hardens them to the effects of radiation on their outer shells. When the bad guys do succeed in detonating a worldwide series of nuclear bombs to bring the end of capitalism, and indeed themselves, if they manage to avoid the initial blasts, cockroaches will still be hanging around wiggling their pointless little antennae.
However, while we humans can be killed off by a pretty pathetic 800 rems, scientists in Scotland are working with chip shop owners to develop a new strain of pickling brine that enables fermented goods to remain impenetrable to thermonuclear radiation. By slowing down the cell reproduction process in onions (and possibly gherkins) and therefore reducing the window in which radiation can affect them, if sealed in a reinforced anti-hydrodynamic container these nutritious and popular snacks could not only survive the initial blast but would remain intact and edible for years afterwards.
While cockroaches have been known to survive without a head for up to a month, and without food for the same amount of time, unlike the pickled onion, they will have to eat at some point. Although they will face competition from various other insect species who have also avoided fallout, it’s likely their omnivorous nature and team-work mentality will work to their advantage. But provided the pickled onion containers are coated in a hydramethylnon gel, there’s no way the cockroaches will consider them a viable food source. They will eventually die of starvation, but the pickled onions will remain. What a shame we won’t be around to eat them.
Next question: "Can beans really make you fart?"
And that’s it for this week. Have fun for the next week.
