Why, in the picture at the top of the site, is there a submarine with Jellies in it?

Asked by Schroedes13 (3864 points ) July 20th, 2011

Pretty simple question. Wouldn’t the Jellies prefer moving around in a fluther rather than a small submarine? Your thoughts?

Press one of the arrows one or three times, and they will be in a fluther.
I guess sometimes they hanker for variety.
They’re advanced that way.
For jellyfish.

LOFL! I never even noticed the picture at the top of the site; that it changes. Or that I could click on the arrow and change it at will. So much for the simple question.

@lillycoyote,
Fracking what!? I didn’t know that…

Weird. In the year and some odd months that I’ve frequented this site, I have never noticed that before.

I’ve been reading Sherlock Holmes lately. Maybe I learned a thing or two :P

@Schroedes13 apparently your nightly reading pays off in unexpected ways.

Schroedes13's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf I guess so. Ps. I’m still watching you in the cabin! So don’t try anything! I see everything!

Because one of our submarines is missing tonight, since she ran aground on maneuvers.

I’ve always liked the classroom full of jellies. That’s what Fluther is all about.

Schroedes13's avatar

@jonsblond I also agree. I just don’t see how the submarine representation portrays any aspect of fluther.com!

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Maybe like @Zaku said. These jellies are advanced.

jonsblond's avatar

Maybe the founders were high and listening to some Beatles when they were brainstorming. :P

Schroedes13's avatar

@Anef_is_Enuf but not all of the Jellies on fluther are advanced :P

They’re taking the ‘bus’ to school, silly.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@auggie, ohhh! It’s so cute when you put it like that. Now it all makes sense.

augustlan's avatar

I have no idea if that is true or not, it’s just what popped into my head the first time I saw it. :)

jonsblond's avatar

so the jellies in between the smart jellies with question marks above their noggins are trippin’ on acid or ecstasy?

How do you sink a submarine full of blondes? Knock on the door!
Maybe it’s for blondes only then ;¬}

ucme's avatar

oh you know i’m only kidding, it’s gingers who are the thick ones….oops! ;¬}

augustlan's avatar

Hey. >:\

Don’t diss us gingers! We’re angry folk. ;)

Me, too. :)

I like the “Ask Fluther” and “We’re all experts” ^^

Sometimes, even Jellies get tired. We need to hitch a ride once in a while. I guess Mr. Ray wasn’t available.

AstroChuck's avatar

The jellies have to use the submarine to get around because they were kicked out of the school. Seems they were caught with some seaweed.

sakura's avatar

They say you learn somthing new every day…that’s my something new for today then!! :)

Symbeline's avatar

Whoa! I didn’t know you could change the design…that kicks ass!

And to answer the question, well…I guess it isn’t logical to have jellyfish in a submarine, since they don’t need one…but maybe they’re killer jellyfish, attacking a sub! And they’re all happy about it! That would be a cool movie…

But I guess it symbolizes harmony, and a quest for knowledge!

They’re attacking the sub.

Kardamom's avatar

Not sure exactly, but you might enjoy reading this thread to find out what really happens when Jellies find themselves inside of a submarine : )

Kane44's avatar

Haha, great question

Symbeline's avatar

@Kardamom I’m up for totally entertaining people. But all of us you chose for that job…put together…might get scary. :D

Kardamom's avatar

@Symbeline Fun scary? Or Scary scary? LOL.
