Cockroaches are some of the hardiest insects on the planet. They can survive without food for a month, and can live without their heads for up to a week. They can hold their breath for 45 minutes, and they have a very high resistance to radiation.

And they make group decisions.


Celebrities saved by the Heimlich maneuver:

  • Ronald Reagan
  • Ed Koch
  • Elizabeth Taylor
  • Goldie Hawn
  • Cher
  • Walter Matthau
  • Carrie Fisher
  • Dick Vitale
  • John Chancellor
  • Jack Lemmon
