I saw this headline "Japanese Fishing Trawler sunk by Giant Jellyfish" and thought "ooooooooooo!" Because there is very little that makes me happier than animal revenge on humans.|
Sigh. It wasn't sunk by a giant jellyfish. It was sunk by idiot humans who failed to grasp the physics of hauling in a net full of dozens of 400 pound creatures.
And the probable reason for getting a net full of 400 pound jellyfish?
Previously hauling in hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of the critters that would normally EAT the jellyfish BEFORE they got to be 400 pounds.
I will now retreat back into my misanthrope shell and pull the hatch closed behind me.
