File:A small cup of coffee.JPG Yeah, it turns out:

Researchers studying the behaviour of the insects have discovered that far from simply being a homogenous mass they have individual character traits.

The discovery is unlikely to change perceptions of them from skittering vermin to desirable beasts but it could go some way to explaining their evolutionary success.

Maybe, but which evolution genius predicted this?

How come sponge colonies succeeded without personalities?

Anyway, Mr. Raid has a personality too.

No, look, soon, back to serious news.

    Evolutionary success? They’re still cockroaches for crying out loud. The most successful are the ones that change the least over time?
