The article that answers the question "Gee, what crawled up China's butt and died?"

Imagine taking a shower when shredded jellyfish bits come out the shower head.

And he'd have gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling jellyfish!

Excellent.

I've seen enough Kantai Collection hentai to know where this is going.

But when you divide them by "shredding" they don't necessarily die. You can sometimes just make millions more.

I didn't know they made Sealab 2021 model kits.

Do they blow up every eleven minutes?

*The average number of explosions per episode is actually much higher than one. Some shows have repeated explosions.

Can we please figure a way to industrialize that doesn't destroy absolutely every little thing on our planet?

oh...all crystal clear now why the deer leader keeps attacking the sea of japan...it's a preemptive jellyfish strike for their future navy.

Does this mean they will always have to have a leading boat to handle the jellyfish?  Seems like an obvious weakness to exploit if that leading boat won't always be there.  Release in the carrier's path some kind of gummy gelatinous goo that congeals and you've got the ship stuck somewhere.

Looks like the Undersea Gardens in Newport, OR.  The diver and octopus are gone in Street View, but you can see a likely smudge from overhead in Google Maps.  https:/­/­w­ww*go­og­le*com/maps/[nospam-﹫-backwards]44­*6­3030​5​2,-124.0520387,47m/data=!3m1!1e3

The attraction itself is okay.  Touristy and expensive, but entertaining.

iirc jellyfish blooms are indicative of unheathly ecosystems, and we're likely to see some really dramatic increases in their populations pretty much worldwide

Yep.  This is no surprise; coastal nuke plants in that area have already had their water intakes fouled by jellyfish.

It's almost like overfishing has consequences...

Now there's a way to stop an aircraft carrier. A tar-like substance that'll float a few feet below the surface, when it comes in contact with metal, it foams and dries hard like Great Stuff foam insulation. Imagine the drag it would create on the hull and the damage to intakes, pumps and impellers. Dispense it from planes, missiles, destroyers, carriers, whatever over a couple hundred miles. It's gotta be eco-friendly though. Make it protein-based so it breaks down into fish food after 72 hours. You're welcome, DARPA. (They probably already have this)

Maybe if they hadn't eaten all the sea turtles their wouldn't be a jellyfish problem

*there

whoops

All you gourmet chefs out there need to find a way to cook the jellyfish so they are edible to feed the poor folk of the world!

Pollution will do this do an ecosystem. We shouldn't be surprised that China, one of the worlds top polluters, is having this problem.

They should fully know that karma is a biatch.

So you want to feed the jellyfish.
