Signs: Cthulu’s return? Don’t kick jelly fish?


Don Knuth at Stanford University collects signs.

Actually he collects photos of signs, especially the diamond-shaped informational-warning signs.

What in the world is this one?

    It’s actually a warning sign that Irukandji jellyfish are in the area. Except thats a freakishly large one – the bell is really about the size of a dime (though the tentacles can be up to a metre). The venom from the sting is 100x as potent as cobra venom, so if you ever see this sign in Oz, believe it!
