If you were in solitary confinement for the rest of your life, and you discovered a cockroach in your room, would you kill it or make it your friend?
As much as I love being alone, and although I've never regarded a cockroach as a good choice for a pet, I'd befriend it in this situation. Why? Because trust me - I'm probably going to be bored out of my skull - with just me and My Sordid Thoughts for company. It's nice to have something else to focus on. Also, a cockroach is better than A Human any day. Humans suck. The human race stinks. Yeah, I hate people. Yay.
