Bioluminescent Deep-Sea Siphonophore

An eerily fantastic creature that appears to be a single, large organism, but which is actually a colony of numerous individual jellyfish-like animals that behave and function together as a single entity. The individual units, called zooids, all share the same genetic material and each perform a specialized role within the colony. 

The best-known siphonophore is the poisonous Portuguese Man o War (Physalia physalis), which lives at the surface of the ocean, unlike the one shown in this video (filmed at a depth of 770 meters). Some siphonophore species can grow up to 40 meters (130 ft) in length. (Source) @sixpenceee

John, trying to break into Greg’s office for Sherlock: It’s locked!

Sherlock: What do you mean it’s locked?

John: What do you mean ‘what do I mean’? When I say it’s locked, it’s locked! How many definitions of 'locked’ are there?

When can we begin to donate to PR and which channels arw trustworthy?

DO NOT DONATE TO THE RED CROSS a lot of American outlets are linking them DO NOT DO IT. Also be wary of donating to any gofundsme etc anyone can set these up and you don’t know how authentic they are. 

Here are alternatives:

Unidos Por Puerto RIco

This site is being ran by the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló. And at this time I think would be one of the best ones to donate to. 


This organization has been doing good work since 1969. 

Hispanic Federation

Another great organization very transparent and easy with their donation process.
