Most cockroaches lay eggs, but the Pacific beetle cockroach gives birth to live young. They also produce food for their offspring, containing tiny protein crystals. Baby cockroaches are fed a liquid substance loaded with fats, sugars, and proteins. For all intents and purposes, this liquid is cockroach milk. As it turns out, cockroach milk is among the most nutritious and highly caloric substances on earth. In fact, pound-for-pound, cockroach milk crystals contain 3 times more energy than buffalo milk, an analysis by Ramaswamy and his colleagues found.

The path is made of a light-emitting material that charges in the sun and can glow for up to 10 hours in the dark, bathing cyclists in a calming blue glow. The lane uses luminophores – chemicals that “ingest” light – to keep the bike path nicely lit at night. They chose blue to “match the Mazurian landscape” where lakes abound. You can read a bit more at Gazeta Wyborcza if your Polish isn’t too rusty or you can just bask in the cold beauty of a glowing bike lane in deepest Poland.
