Will insects eventually take over the world?
Damon: “That’s a Dave sort of question.”
Dave: “Get some sleep.”
Alex: “Not for a very long time.”
Graham: “But they will, won’t they?” A cockroach can live without a head for ten days. Remember when we were in that sauna in New York, and there were all these cockroaches walking around, without a care in the world?”
Alex: “They were the cleanest cockroaches in the world.”
Graham: “Do you think cockroaches kiss?”
Alex: “Not if they don’t have any heads.”
Damon: “I don’t like killing cockroaches. But the best way to do it is with a blow torch.”
Graham: “Do they burn?”
Alex: “The scariest thing I’ve ever seen is a horseshoe crab. Fucking hell. They’ve got all different kinds of legs and landing gear. It’s like a Swiss Army knife under there.”
Dave: “They’re not insects though, I admire insects. I think people generally like insects more after after Antz and A Bug’s Life. That gave them personality. But they’re all aliens, though, really.”
Alex: “Imagine if you could spin a web, or sting. It would be nice to have all that tackle. What do humans have to protect ourselves?”
Dave: “Our rapier wit.”"
