      of cockaroches - had never seen one live. And no shit that thing was eye level. I wanna say I was 23 at the time - truly the scream was epic and I'm not prone to histronics. That bastard really freaked me out. If I had entertained any thoughts of moving to TX - that killed it. Fixed that by moving to CA! A few years later, the future DH and I bought a house in Modesto. Right after we move in - cockaroaches! I'm freaking out and washing every single utensil in my kitchen. And talking to the neighbors - oh no, those are Japanese Beetles, not cockaroches! BULLSHIT! The day we pulled up those paver bricks and used the LP gas torchdown gun for a cockaroach massacre was awesome! Turns out they really like paver bricks on sand. Guess what I will never have next to my house again. And it was huge - 12x16 for sure. Lots of habitat.

      if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.
