IMHO, Jellyfish is a nice dish :P (What to do, everytime see the word jellyfish, made me think of food only)... especially when eating it together with vinegar, soya sauce & chillies or chilli sauce.
Don't ever look down on Jellyfish ~ they have several uses. There's even a website on 1001 uses of jellyfish. Check it out ~ There's lotsa interesting facts out there. Jellyfish is indeed very valuable. I posted this piece of info somewhere online but never do so on my blog yet.
Some interesting facts that I gathered from the website 1001 uses of jellyfish:
(0129) Crisps. Dried cannonball jellyfish are a delicacy in Japan. They look and sound just like giant potato crisps.
Sounds very delicious. I want to try that.. Just wonder whether Fish Fish eat this before?
(0130) Dog biscuits (dried)
aiseh.. can feed my dog jellyfish as well :D
(0275) Organic breast implant with features for amazing sex life in aeroplanes. Expand and contract with changes in altitude.
(0335) Psychiatrist. Convey all your problems to the patient jellyfish. Its inherent calmness will provide you with an atmosphere in which answers will erupt like ink from a squid.
This is interesting.....
(0574) Shower cap.
Hah??? Can't imagine putting a jellyfish on my head :P
(0777) Pet jellyfish. (Easy to feed, don't disturb neighbours, don't make noise etc.)

Question: Does urinating on jellyfish stings help?And, in summary of what is written there regarding Jellyfish stings :
No.... this common folk remedy does nothing. Worst still, it can fire undischarged stinging cells and make the sting worse. So, remember this :)
1. Prevention is Better Than Cure
2. Get out of the water.
3. Pour vinegar over the area to prevent the nematocysts firing
4. Remove all tentacles using sand, cloth, seaweed, mechanical device or glove(if available) etc
5. Wash the area with salt water
6. Put Ice (In a cloth of Plastic Bag) over the sting to relieve pain
7. Seek Medical Attention
