Prepaqre for the invasion of the jellyfish. That’s the result of a National Science Foundation study, which reveals massive swarms of jellyfish are appearing in oceans worldwide in apparently unprecedented numbers.
I don’t know about you, dear reader(s), but jellyfish scare the crap out of me. They’re just…weird. They’re goopy, tentacle-y, and they don’t even have brains!!! How can we compete with such a beast???
Back to the jellyfish, though…if we’re already having problems with depleted fisheries, melting glaciers, and oceanic “dead zones,” the thought of angry swarms of jellyfish in coastal areas is, well, troublesome. I will be spending all of my vacations in mountainous inland areas from now on.
