Breaking News: There's no such thing as a jellyfish!

Asked by Aqua (2543 points ) June 4th, 2011

If a fluther is a group of jellyfish, and jellyfish don’t exist, what are we exactly? (Please see this video)

Also, did you know you’ve been spotted all around the world?

Jellyfish exist. It’s just a broad term for a variety of different species that meet certain criteria. But they still exist. Similarly, just because dinner can be any number of dishes at any variety of times doesn’t mean dinner exists any less. Broad terms are just as needed and useful as incredibly specific ones.

I think the several hundred people who reported being stung this weekend on Florida beaches will disagree. ^_^

The Jellies are taking over my beaches! They’re EVERYWHERE!

It all depends if you chose the red pill or the blue pill.

To be or not to be. That is the question.

I think therefore I exist.

@Seek_Kolinahr When I was in southeast FL in February the amount of jellyfish washed up on the beach were unbelievable! I have never seen the beaches like that. Needless to say I didn’t go in the water.

Luckily I only change into my Jelly costume when there’s an available phone booth. When was the last time you saw an actual phone booth? I’ve been in this costume for several months and it needs a wash.
