And a guy in the comments mentions that the jellyfish that washed ashore actually have no sting, and wonders why TFA doesn't just mention that instead of being scary about jellyfish.

"News."

Jellyfish stings are annoying but Portuguese man-o-war stings are way. way worse. I was stung once as a kid. I still remember it. Pain like nothing I've ever felt. It lasted several days.

All of those tentacles can hurt you long after the man-o-war is dead.....

Jacksonville Beach lifeguards said a huge amount of jellyfish has washed ashore with the swell from the waves.
Jellyfish are mostly made of water so they die quickly after washing ashore but they will sting but it is very mild.
If you find a jellyfish washed up on the beach then it is probably dead but be warned, they can still give you a sting if handled, so leave well alone.


It was physically painful for me to read that. LEARN SOME GRAMMAR!

Meh, just some late February action, typical for early spring. It's not news, it's Amnesia.com.

That isn't a jellyfish. It's a siphonophore. A jellyfish is a single organism. Portuguese man-o-war is a collection of individual entities, or polyps, that lives as a group for mutual benefit.
