- I was watching an episode of Planet Earth, which usually fills me with majesty and wonder at the breathtaking world we inhabit. However, I was watching an episode on Caves, which fills me with untold horror. In this episode there is one cave where the roof is covered with bats, and the floor of the cave is completely covered in bat droppings. The bat droppings are covered with a writhing, wiggling ocean of cockroaches. The documentary series shows a bat that has fallen into said droppings and is eaten alive by the cockroaches, which brings us to the first universal truth: it could be worse. I have heard of some bad days, but no one I know has had a “struggle to escape a mound of your own feces, only to get eaten alive by cockroaches” type of day.
