Like amber

jellyfish on beach

    1. btw, those ones (Cyanea) have a nasty sting. I put my arm in a bucket of them when I was a kid, and might as well have stuck it into a wasps nest.

      1. I heard that! So I’m very cautious around them, even when they’re dead on a beach. Did the stings have a lasting effect or did it pass off fairly quickly?
