  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Ectobius has a long fossil history in Europe, occurring in Baltic amber that is about 44 million years old, and its lineage was believed to have been exclusively from the Old World. However, a shocking new discovery has uprooted that view. In fact, it now appears that Ectobius may have originated in the New World.

The IRS have demanded to know exactly how Ectobius supported himself during these missing years.  :(

He's a cockroach, durr he was in politics.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

"Cockroach reappears after 49 million years"? I knew they were tough, but not that tough.

They didn't really disappear, they just scattered when someone turned the light on.
