Irukandji Jellyfish

I finished my second day of the two day "Apply First Aid" course yesterday, and among the things we looked at was stings and bites. The Irukandji jellyfish has the normal "Headaches", "Back pain", "Nausea", etc symptoms, but then at the end of the list you have "Feeling of impending doom." I love Australian critters, not only will they put you in the hospital in agonising pain, but they will also give you feelings of impending doom. The treatment is fairly interesting too: "Anaesthesia and reassurance". Yep, the only thing they can do for you is give you some pain killers and tell you your not going to die (probably correct, it's only known to have killed a couple of people, but stings hundreds every year)

The Lion's Mane

Just an interesting example of cultural differences I observed while reading The Lion's Mane, a Sherlock Holmes story. Basically the story goes that a man stumbles of the beach beside a lagoon in obvious agony, mumbles something about a "lion's mane", and then dies. When the body is examined it reveals a pattern of red welts across his back, which are described as similar to the wounds from a whip of some sort.
