If Marie Antoinette had been a roach, she would have survived the guillotine – at least for a while. Wait, what? That’s the weirdest sentence ever. But it’s also true. Roaches’ brains are in their bodies, not their heads, so if a roach is decapitated (like due to civil unrest and political assassination, apparently), he won’t die. He will eventually starve to death in about a week, because his mouth was on his head. But he’ll run around for quite a while longer trying to figure out a solution to his dilemma. You can’t do that, and neither could poor Marie.
