Heamer: Fun fact:The Portuguese Manowar actually is not a jellyfish, but rather a siphonophore, which is a collection of even smaller organisms functioning together as a single unit./TMYK

kidgenius: Shockingly, the news article said the same thing. Actual information in a news story.
MBooda: Subby, don't give the Brits ideas. They'll head for the shore in droves, and the next thing you'll know we'll have yet another Monstrosity of British Cuisine.[www.toimg.net image 482x298]
SeikaArashi: ... For awhile I was super paranoid of the water.Now whenever I see something that looks anything close to being live, I get out lol.
SeikaArashi: I remember when I was younger, my family and I were visiting my uncle in Florida. Went to the beach, but it was a cloudy day and we saw this sign that just had the color red on it. No explanation. So my parents let me play in the water.Found out why the color red was posted, there were manowars in the water and one had wrapped itself around my arm and stung the fark out of me.I remember it hurting like a motherfarker... For awhile I was super paranoid of the water.Now whenever I see something that looks anything close to being live, I get out lol.

gopher321: Britain doesn't have a whole lot of lethal fauna, so this should be a nice change for them./apart from drunken soccer hooligans
ReverendJynxed: Fun fact:If they were like you, there wouldn't be a misconception.
durbnpoisn: gopher321: Britain doesn't have a whole lot of lethal fauna, so this should be a nice change for them./apart from drunken soccer hooligansI don't think they have ANY! Right after I saw this post, I went and looked some stuff up.They have nothing dangerous on land, other than deer. And that's only bacause they jump in the way of cars. They have no large animals like bears or mountain lions. They have no poisosous snakes, spiders, or scorpions. The worst mammal they have is a tiny venomous shrew, with teeth too small to puncture human flesh. They can leave a nasty rash though.So the only thing they have to report that might be a killer is the Orca. Which is not even a land animal. And there has never been a report of one killing a human in the UK.
