Quelle Disappointment! [Nov. 10th, 2009|08:19 am]

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.
