I love diatoms
Today while trying to make conversation with a customer, i brought up Bayfest. I personally am pretty excited about it, especially for AFI and Foster the People. He of course said what everyone else says about all the acts being washed up old bands, many of them having played time and time again. He said he had already seen a lot of them when he was in 9th grade. When I said it was pretty cool that foster the people is playing, he said “i was probably listening to them in 9th grade too” lolol. Maybe if he had a time machine. Also, he then was like “i really wanna go to the free Kenny Chesney concert.” God.
The lion’s mane jellyfish (Cyanea capillata), also known as hair jelly is the largest known species of jellyfish. Its range is confined to cold, boreal waters of the Arctic, northern Atlantic, and northern Pacific Oceans. Similar jellyfish, which may be the same species, are known to inhabit seas near Australia and New Zealand. The largest recorded specimen found, washed up on the shore of Massachusetts Bay in 1870, had a bell (body) with a diameter of 2.3 metres (7 ft 6 in) and tentacles 37 m (120 ft) long.
