this is horrifying.

I saw this news article today:

"With fish numbers all over the world falling thanks to overfishing and habitat destruction, a surprising predator has sprung up to take their place — the jellyfish. Due to their low energy requirements, the floating blobs of stingers don't need to be quite as active or accurate to spread and fill the ecological niche afforded them by changes in the ecosystem.

Even more curiously, the jellyfish appear to be adapting to be better hunters, too. An active predator fish has to spot prey and chase after it, but the Medusozoa just passively wait for their prey to come into contact with their poison stingers. So jellyfish are evolving into larger and even slower moving organisms, able to cover more area with their tendrils while still needing only small amounts of energy to survive.

Keep your eye on the beaches in the future. Sedate-seeming giant jellyfish may be the next megasharks."

this looks terrible. still not too sure about the new blog design, i liked the old one.

congrats on GU, but doesnt it seem weird that they are the only school not making you take an extra year???

lol there goes any chance of a beach vacation with Meowfoy.

And let's not question that GU isn't adding an extra year. They barely have a website, so obvs they haven't heard about the new requirements...

haha, i'm 90% certain those other schools are gonna figure out no one is enrolling and change back to the old system. so dumb.

There were a ton of jelly fish when we went to
Decatur island. So gross!

Pia said...

Wow! Are you ever going to enter the water again?

And I think GU is genius! Everyone will want to go to them cause who wants an extra year of school if you can avoid it?
