So the same stuff I am taking for my cold right now.

"While all the mice injected just with jellyfish venom died within an hour, about half that also received the zinc treatment survived for the duration of the experiment."

Yes a cure indeed!!!

"Sorry your dad died, little Jimmy, but The Internets decided that three people per decade wasn't worth saving. They made us spend the grant money on porn instead."

That page is annoying as hell with the red banner at the top switching on and off causing the text to move up and down every few seconds. I checked it in IE and it doesn't do that, only in Firefox I guess.

Subby! Thanks for the fark meme fail.

Should have been: "Possible cure for deadliest jelly fish sting discovered. Still no cure for cancer."

Because it's so rarely needed, it will cost four million dollars a dose.

And no, your insurance won't cover it.

Yes, but the ones who need the cure most are the ones who will kill you for even suggesting there's a need for a cure.

good for you for being honest. i like being naughty too. it makes your heart race and reminds you that you're alive. you can eat just so many peanut butter jelly sammiches before life bores you to tears. i so look forward to affording a divorce one day, as Mrs.Kritter prefers a loveless sexless sham of a marriage in which she dominates her husband (and not in the good way) because she refuses to face the reality of how badly she needs the services of a mental health professional. sorry, TMI. yes, pee pee is fun and i look forward to doing that nasty hopefully before i drop dead and the chance is forever gone.

Subby: "up to three lives a decade"

The article on Box Jellyfish linked from TFA: "While no official tallies exist, anecdotal evidence suggests dozens of people and perhaps more than 100 or more die each year from the many species of box jellyfish that exist in all oceans.

Some 20 to 40 people die from stings by box jellyfish annually in the Philippines alone, according to the U.S. National Science Foundation. "But because death certificates are not required in many countries within the range of box jellyfish, worldwide fatalities from box jellyfish may be seriously underestimated," the NSF states."
