So, if someone has a child who gets very upset when a pet dies, they should, ummm, buy them a puppy and hope the child grows up before you have to worry about it.
Good thinking, David!
Wow - wish I could do that, although not in the ocean.
Robin, I agree that would be a bit of a drawback!
Oh boy, I can't go to the beach anymore without being scared out of my mind that I'm gonna get stung by a jellyfish... yikes! Even a picture of them gives me the willies...
If I had a name like Turritopsis Nutricul, I'd want to repeat it over and over forever.Perhaps that's how it's done...
Sorry, Rebecca, I didn't think this would be triggering!Whirl, you've worked out their secret.
Robin- think how much writing you could get done with all those arms!
That's very amazing!
DJK, it really is!
And I thought you had found it. That much sought after fountain of life.
Ann, if only!
That is totally cool.And yup, I could see a story coming out of it.Maybe an immortal hero with the irresistible urge to procreate and suck ship hulls? :)
Raine, I love that idea!
