http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/6483758/Japanese-fishing-trawler-sunk-by-giant-jellyfish.html

The trawler, the Diasan Shinsho-maru, capsized off Chiba`as its three-man crew was trying to haul in a net containing dozens of huge Nomura's jellyfish.
Each of the jellyfish can weigh up to 200 kg and waters around Japan have been inundated with the creatures this year. Experts believe weather and water conditions in the breeding grounds, off the coast of China, have been ideal for the jellyfish in recent months.

Yikes!
Though I've always found jellyfish really cool, amazing to look at.

Just more ammo for me to not going swimming in the open sea, lol.

A bad experience in the mediterranean sea put me off swimming in deep water... :oops:

Peace, Caper.

I have never liked swimming in the ocean; I much prefer lakes, if the water is clean. JAWS The Movie scared the crap out of me years ago, so I stay away from the ocean water. :|

I agree Tweaked, lakes and pools are my thing too.

That way you've got a better idea of what you might be swimming with. :lol:

I'm not to keen on the ocean after we hired out a pedlo one day and went a fair way out into the mediterranean sea. I jumped in and was tredding water when my friend shouts that there's a dark object underwater a few meters away from me and it's moving!

Well...you've never seen anyway move so fast. He still mantains that was what he saw and it wasn't a joke.

I spoke to a local fisherman in Spain and he said there are Great white sharks out there, if you got out far enough!

Yep..Jaws put me off swimming anywhere for a while lol..oh and the film Piranha, the man jumps in and don't jump back out again!

Peace, Caper.

I used to own a pool, back in the day... My hair and skin suffered so badly from the chlorine, I had to give up on those. Be careful of pools, everyone. Chlorine is not good for you, but in pools that are used by the public, the amount of chlorine is usually far above the safe levels.

I've been in a pool in Cornwall before, it was an indoor one and that made my skin itch all day.

Though i was in a pool in Tunisia once..in it for a lot of the day and it was great. Really cool water and i couldn't smell much chlorine.

So i suppose it depends on the pool and how much the rules say they must put in. I don't go to the pools here in the UK much..far too much in them.

I wonder about the people who swallow big gulps of the pool water...can't be good.

The chlorine issue reminds of the flouride issue...both are serious and dangerous to health, but yet very few seem to care about it or even be aware about it.

Peace, Caper.

My partner is one of THOSE... the kind of person who says, "I've been drinking fluoride all my life and I'm STILL HERE! So a little chlorine in the shower and the drinking water just adds to the flavoring." (Such a donkey's ass...)

Fluoride is a poison.

Chlorine is a poison.

So why do you think so many people claim this stuff is good for you?

Imagine the possibilities when either of these interact with other chemicals in your system.

Sweet dreams or what?

You have the people in denial about the fact that the governments would do such a thing to us. Then you have the governments telling us we need it...and when they say jump too many people jump.

Nightmares indeed.

Peace, Caper.
