I hate jellyfishes..
I wonder how immortality tastes...
poor jelly fish that would be crazy
I wonder how long until scientists and celebrities start trying to figure out how to inject it.
screw robots and zombies, its Jelly Fishes that we ought to worry about!
it sounds like it recycles itself.
immortal Jellyfish... sounds like the name of a band
Does their omnipresence make them superfast, too?
Looks like a Metroid...
get the ice beam.
That's the last thing humankind needs.
Not that it's really applicable to us, but it makes me wonder if I would want immortality if the price was to relive my life, especially without my memories?
In before Highlander Joke
There is plenty of jellyfish where I live.
I remember when I was kid, my mother had relatives came down to visit from Alabama and we took them to the beach. We spotted a jellyfish and they wanted to get a good look at it and so I took a piece of wood and went to the water and push it to the shore with that piece of wood.
I knew better not to touch it with my hands.
Their method just flat out won't work for us.
The life cycle is far too different from ours for this to function. We don't have a polyp stage or anything to revert to.
I wrote an essay about that lil sucker last semester. Pretty crazy thing if you ask me!
Thank you scientist, that really made my day. Immortal jelly fish. Why couldn't it have been 'immortal cheeseburger,' or 'immortal hamster'?
I don't care what anybody says, the man o war is twice worse than the box jelly. Man o wars sit on the surface and you have to watch them float closer and closer to you because those bastards can surf! And they're top notch surfers too! D:<
It was sarcasm. Mostly.
That is pretty neat. It's like if I just decided to be a kid again once I reached the age of 50 or something.
I'm sure someone out there will want to try and apply studies done on this jellyfish to humans, though I'm not sure how applicable that would be considering they are vastly different organisms from us and live vastly different lives. But still, people have always wanted their fountain of youth and here's something that's apparently found it.
