I hate jellyfish.
I went SCUBA diving today and on my ascent to the surface I got stung on the mouth.

...That is all.

The water was pretty cold too. Had to borrow a thicker wetsuit with longer sleeves so I wouldn't freeze. I'm glad I done it, otherwise I may of been stung more than just my face.

The jellyfish only stung me, it didn't leave a scar or anything. It just sucked for about an hour.

The speices was like this moon jelly, but pink.

RE: I hate jellyfish.
On a serious note I am glad that it wasn't one of the more lethal species.

An hour recovery time is faster than a bee sting.

Got a buddy that went thru a Box Jelly sting... and from what he says, worst pain in his entire life.

It actually is good to see that it was more seious than it could be. I've read and watched videos about Box Jelly's and people died within 9 minutes after the sting.

Portuguese men-of-war and box jellies are some of the deadliest sea creatures on earth, escpecially for surfers and scuba sports.

Sorry to hear that kirby... Get ur jellyfishing/spongebob game up, yo! Too bad that happened, i love scuba diving. Its a little chilly up northeast here to do that tho...

My science teacher showed me these two weeks ago, oh my word they are undoubtedly amazingly scary.

RE: I hate jellyfish.
Yes, box jellies are pretty bad. They're not not common in Florida though, but there have been sightings. Much more common in Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

The dive masters (or supervisers) were fully aware of the large swarm and they knew they weren'y deadly. They just said to decend immeditely and wait for your dive partner.

STYLIE, is your friend also a diver?

Lol

Every so often when I go to the beach I'll see washed up Man-o-War. Most are harmless by then, but some still sting.

Just so you guys know, man-o-war and jelly fish are not the same thing. Never call one the other. You'll sound smarter like that. Wink
