Cockroach Close-Up

On his Facebook wall, Robin Loznak of Kellogg, Ore., posts this photo of a cockroach, with the comment: "Downtown Roseburg, Ore., is the home to some rather disgusting creatures. On the other hand, did you know the Greeks and Egyptians used ground or boiled cockroaches for medicinal purposes and in the 1870s, many people in New Orleans drank cockroach tea as a medicinal remedy?" You can see more of Robin's outdoor photography here.

Question: Which type of creepy crawly unnerves you most?
