Jellyfish

Why I come up with the idea of writing about Jellyfish? Cos I have one crappy cute KSL (契细佬) Kenneth with the nickname Jellyfish :P

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.

(courtesy from http://universe-review.ca)

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.
walao... OMG

(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.)
what a great idea :)

(0964) Use it as a nickname (some people do this voluntarily you know!).
I like this.... hahhaaha... how true. There is one living example over here -> Jellyfish

(0965) Excuse for avoiding unpleasant date (gotta wash my jellyfish).
Hahaha.. Like that also can?

(0278) Cheap brain substitute (pink and wet).
what the heck is this ???

Some fact that concern most of us expecially divers, are Jellyfish stings !! There are some useful fishing tips here ~ Fishing First Aid - Jellyfish Stings. Hope everyone will follow the comments stated there, especially this one:
Question: Does urinating on jellyfish stings help?
No.... this common folk remedy does nothing. Worst still, it can fire undischarged stinging cells and make the sting worse. So, remember this :)
And, in summary of what is written there regarding Jellyfish stings :
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

arrgghhh, jellyfish, killitkillit... hehehe... seriously, for a pet, sounds interesting, very interesting. i'll research on it then. cheers!

Darryl said...

Hey, Monica got stung by Jellyfish. Chandler peed on her and she was alright (except embarrassed).

How do you explain that? :)

Chen said...

JoeC
hahhaha... If u keep jellyfish as pet next time, do let me know :P

Darryl
The explanation is damn simple... That is tv drama lah... They can twist and turn the facts.... Anything is possible in tv drama or movie.. U also know about that, right? :P

Even they can do simply do resuscitation on patient who is asystole (on the cardiac monitor) by defibrillation instead of chest compression...
the defibrillation will actually do more harm than good.
This is really damn bullshit and pissed me off everytime I see they defib patient who is asystole.
I will definitely write a detail post on this matter later on)
Damn misleading...

*rolling on the floor, laughing* WAkakakakakakakaka! When I see the pic, the first thing I thought about is the dear blogger Jellyfish. Then when I read that jellyfish can be made into so many delicacies, I pictured the dear blogger Jellyfish being eaten up! Hehehe... sorry!

izchan said...

I can't decide that I got smarter or more confused after the "breast implant" line.

Furkids In Hong Kong said...

My goodness, anyone who urinates on themselves deserve to be stung more.

I wonder if in all these years, did anyone have a jellyfish land on their face then asked his/her friend to urinate on his/her head? LOL, so funny just thinking about it.

Thanks for the great post, and hello Jellyfish!

Winn said...

is jellyfish's sting fatal?
what a complicated fish!!it's part of the fish family rite?

...
or jelly's family?

Hawks said...

Some of the Jellyfish sting is potent. Luckily the dangerous one (esp. the box jellyfish) is not found here.

Nice write up.

Chen said...

Winn,
Most are non fatal, but.. just as Hawks mentioned, the box jellyfish aka seawasp is extremely dangerous. Those unlucky soul who kena sting by box jellyfish has high mortality rate unless being treated immediately.

For greater details about the family thingy, u can ask our dear jellyfish :P

Hawks
Sure u read up a lot about Jellyfish and etc. since u go diving so frequently.
Yeah.. luckily the the most venomous marine animal,box jellyfish is not available here in Malaysia.
