Quote: thanks for the info. We will not step on any then and looks like our grand child will have to wait till sping to visit the beach, now that he is old enough. Cold or not, maybe we need it to rid them. My health has improved so much, we want to start walking the beach, so they are not going to keep me away. However, wading is out I guess. LOL , like he will wade any how.
---------------- Adolph's meat tenderizer...DON'T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT !!! Gods gift to beach people..Most everyone living on or near the water has this with them at all times...The Jellyfish sting may be worse than a bee sting..then multiply that by 100, if the damn thing wraps around you) and it hurts and will keep hurting for up to 30 mins... the jellyfish have small cells called nematocists on their tentacles. They have a flagellum that when touched shoots out into the victim to kill it (small fish)..that is how they feed...ok..now for the easy part....the "poison" is a protein...meat tenderizer has papilla in it which breaks down proteins !! TA DAAAA..So if you pour it on and rub it in usually within 5 mins or so it stops... Also...for the really daring...you can pick them up..tentacles and all in your hand...ok..not quite that simple..you have to pick them up with your hand on top and fingers curling under them so nothing comes in contact except the palm side of your hand..Your skin is thick and tough enough so that the nematocists won't bother you... Now..I hear you all out their groaning like "he doesn't have a friggin clue what he is talking about"..or what an idiot....but...all true !! MF's believe it or not !!!
