Whoa: A Jellyfish That Looks Like A Firework Explosion

January 8, 2018

This is a video from the Hercules ROV (remotely operated underwater vehicle) being guided by a research team aboard the the E/V (exploration vehicle) Nautilus off the coast of Mexico filming a deep sea Halitrephes maasi jellyfish that looks like an honest-to-God firework explosion. WIthout any light though it would actually be almost entirely transparent, it just looks like a firework thanks to the reflection of the rover's lights off the creature's radial canals and tentacles. Crazy, right? You know, Mother Nature, as much shit as I talk, sometimes you really are alright. "Anal spiders." Um, what? "Nothing, nothing -- just brainstorming." YOU FILTHY BILGE HAG.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Lucinda, who agrees in the case of almost everything, under the sea creatures did it first.

    "WIthout any light though it would actually be almost entirely transparent" so basically you'd have no idea you were about to die writhing in pain - that's not scary.

  • Irina Abramovich

    Jenness:

    You are exactly right about being a lesbian for afterooster's wife. It's like every post you write has to do with showing your boobs to afterooster's wife. Keep it up! I like your posts more than many others -- BUT NOT BECAUSE OF THE LESBIAN SLANT!=)

    <3 Thomas

    Hubree: You're a sweet, sugary, little, Brown/White Knight Kitten and you look cute in gay 1980's underwear and tights for boys and American Apparel T-Shirts. See you -----------------------------------------------------NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Irina: How'd you like the Minnesota State Bar CLE course on the Webinar now? Pretty cool!=)

    That reminds me, the human race could benefit from such a kind of predation... I'm thinking we could adapt jellyfish to air, maybe use a gas bladder for buoyancy; the gas could be a byproduct of their metabolism... Soon the silent floating painful death could be found in the parking lot between your car and the WalMart entrance...

  • Irina Abramovich

    Bling Nye,

    I wonder if a jellyfish could adapt to being my daughter -- that would be sooo cute at like Sea World!!!

    <3 Thomas

    Hubree: Let's get married and having a whole group of our furry, kitten friends join us at the ORGY for Friends of God!=)=)=)
    Irina: You're welcome to be a guest at my home, especially, when I'm throwing up, EVERY DAY!=)
