First time 2 years ago.

Funny thing ocean currents.

What do you want to put it down to Herb?

Global warming?

It's feckin summer here on the Fraser Coast.

Biggest tides of the year happening.

A once in 150 year super blue blood moon will push the tides & currents around a bit more on the 31st January.

Why don't you change your name to Al Gore?

You old Man Bear Pig you.  Tongue

The most difficult choice a politician must ever make is whether to be a hypocrite or a liar.

They're tiny and we're only described in the 1960s.

No doubt they've been that far south before, and will again.

I got the crap bitten out of me by swarms of killer march flies last time I was on Fraser Is. Horrid part of the world Wink

Irukanji - just one of many 'Jelly Blooms' around the world as the Ocean environment has been compromised and brought back down to its 'primordial seas' knees.
Lack of Sharks has brought the Humboldt Squid rising in vast numbers to fill ...the NICHE.
Jellies swarm around Nihon (Japan) because there is 'nothing' much else left to compete with it.

Irukanji ...when used properly, dropped inside a bottle of Jim Beam and left on front step (looking like a worm on a hook, but not quite actually appearing like 'bait'). Can provide that 'Houso' arsehole next door a nice cardiac arrest. Wink

Yes they think it is moving south due to warmer waters

Quote:
Deadly Irukandji Jellyfish are drifting further south along Queensland's coastline
Toxicologist professor Jamie Seymour has "little doubt" Irukandji will keep moving down to the Gold and Sunshine Coasts after a stinger was found at Fraser Island on Sunday.
Mr Seymour cited warmer sea temperatures as the reason Irukandji could become a regular occurrence at Mooloolaba, and even as far south as Coolangatta on the Gold Coast.

There are a lot of small bits of hard coral growing in southern QLD and northern NSW.

The one they caught off Frazer is an infant, so there must also be parents around the same place.  Nasty.

Perhaps it hitched a ride in someone's wetsuit.

I remember a story of a guy on a Container Ship suffering the effects of a Irukanji.
It took them a while to figure it out.
Apparently he was standing on the port side rail looking out to sea when one of the waves splashing against the ship spurted up high enough and by chance, it had an Irukanji Jelly in it and it grazed his cheek.
He near died.
15m high above water he was.

And that person in that same wetsuit, swam from where to where without getting out of the water?

Some of those jellyfish can be pretty dangerous, Herbie.
