Giant Medusa Jellyfish Seen in Former Gulf Of Mexico (Now Renamed 'Huge Hell Pit')

A massive stygiomedusa gigantea jellyfish was recently videotaped for the first time swimming around the base of an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. These three-feet-by-twenty-feet creatures are amazing to look at, but if they don't eat one hundred thousand barrels of oil a day, none of this is very important, is it?

That Jellyfish used to be clear before last week.

Hmmm maybe it doesn't matter that they don't *eat* the oil. They can just soak it up, then we catch them and incinerate them, or something.

True story.

i get about 17 mpj (miles per jellyfish)

An oil-rig dementor?

Isn't this the equivalent of the deep-sea submersible operators surfing porno on the job when they're supposed to be assessing damage to the rig??


History shows again and again how nature points up the follow of men/

So this must be the Kraken.

Is anyone else turned on by this?

Um, I'm actually a little turned on by the sheer amount of metrics superimposed over that video screen.

That altitude indicator is a cocktease.

Speaking of Eroticism Under The Sea (which is the theme of the prom I am hosting).

And thus supports my ongoing theory that the deep ocean is the freakiest fucking thing on earth.

And that is what makes it awesome.

"If I Did It" by the Giant Freaking Jellyfish. Released tomorrow as a press release from BP Publishing.

Nice. That's the other angle.

Fascinating and eerie, from about :50 it looks like some big-headed Tim Burton creature, with a long flowing gothic black dress trailing behind it, ghostly. The Miss Havisham of jellyfish.

NO more ocean swimming for this cat.
