:(

She had to abandon the swim after 11 hours (!!!) after bad jellyfish stings.

Still, a great effort from the Melbourne girl and hope she has another go at the swim soon.

we should expect science to find a solution for the jellyfish problem by now. they found an electro magnetic solution for the sharks.

The jellyfish aren't as mobile and couldn't get away even if they wanted to, which makes it quite hard to apply a similar solution.

Of course one could take the view that the sharks and jellyfish have a perfect right to be where they are in the oceans and that humans have only themselves to blame if they do daft things like trying to swim very long distances in tropical or sub-tropical waters.

Humans are inherently daft, though, and always looking for daft things to do.

Perhaps it was the daftness gene that made them evolve into humans.

No chimpanzee or orang utan would try something so silly.

The jellyfish must have a mechanism that releases the poisonous stuff, maybe humans can find how to neutralize it :)
