You people think spiders are bad?
« on: April 21, 2011, 02:22:07 PM »


Holy mother of fuck!  That is a monster jelly fish.

Quote
The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world.
The largest can come in at about 6 meters and has tentacles over 50 meters long. Pretty amazing when you think these things have been swimming around for so long.
They have hundreds of poisonous tentacles that it used to catch passing by fish. it then slowly drags in itís prey and eats it.
That is terrifying.

News story on how a dead one came to the shore of a beach in New Hampshire and stung 150 people even though it was dead.  It's longest tentacle was 13 feet.

Weighed 45-50 pounds.

Poisonous tentacles 50 meters long and the guy is that close to the fucker. I don't know if I should call him brave or stupid.

I fucking HATE JELLYFISH. 

FUCK.

I've hated them my entire life. I went snorkelling in the keys once and one floated past my face.  Not just a little coconut jelly or whatever, this was a Portuguese man-of-war or some shit.  I swear I did a J-C-like run on water back to the boat.  When I got there, the dive captain told me we were on this side of the reef, because it's tentacles likely were ripped off.  Otherwise I'd likely be looking at some painin.

Fuck Jellyfish.  90% water, over 9000% piece of shit creatures that should be blown completely out of existence.

Yes, fuck those things.  My girlfriend got stung by one in NC last fall and is just now getting rid of the scars.  The secondary flare-up was the worst, especially since we were back in OH and nobody knows jack shit about how to treat a sting up here.
Why do the loudest stereos belong to those with the worst taste in music?

People must be retarded; most jellyfish still sting after they're dead. How do you not know this and still deign to set foot near a goddamned beach? The Portuguese Man of War causes this shit all the time.

I remember watching a show on discovery health about a guy who drank a sample of stingers. Someone left it ina water bottle in the fridge... drank from it and almost died.

I love jelly fish, especially the luminescent ones found deep in the ocean. I think the scariest one I saw wasnt that big one, but a small one called the irukandji by australia. Its only the size of your fingernail, trasparent and its venom can cause intense pain and possibly death. Skip to 2 minutes into the video, the woman gets stung by a broken stinger and the maximum allowable dose of morphine doesnt stop the pain.
