There Might Be People Like This

A jellyfish is not a single animal but a colony of animals. Some tentacles act as a balance, others sting enemies, some catch prey, while others are in charge of breeding. Jellyfish are more than 95 percent water and have no brain, heart, or bones, and no actual eyes.

Actually Joy, I think you just described the internet! Present company excepted, of course.

I liked the previous comment, interesting.
I think that jellyfish clearly demonstrates that most of the things we consider valuable from our self are actually dispensable.

Amazing I never knew that. And to think that they are so carefully organized to the point that they not only multiply but also evolve too. I was once stung by a jelly fish and It hurt like hell. Then a friend of mine taught me how to flip them over while in the water and to trow them trough the air away from where I was swimming, I used to think that I was brave when doing that but after the stung I mostly avoided them.

No brain, no heart, no bones, and no eyes. Joy, are you sure these aren't conservatives? ;)
