One of the most terrible – and by that I mean AWESOME – pirates was Lady Ching Shih. She lead what was probably the most feared pirate armada of the Chinese oceans during the 1800s. Lady Ching is said to have had hundreds of ships under her control.
You may think that pirates pierced their ears for swag, but they actually believed that earrings made of silver or gold could improve their vision! Obviously, this is not true. Do not try this at home.

Incredible Tinybeast wants to know “can jellyfish sting themselves?” Dr. Tierney Thys gives us the answer in this week’s AJHQ+A.
Did you know that you may even find jellies in fresh water? The jellyfish species C. sowerbii, likes calm fresh water reservoirs, lakes, and slow moving rivers.
C. Sowerbiis can be found throughout the world and have been found in almost every US state with the exception of six: Wyoming, Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, North Dakota, or South Dakota. C. Sowerbiis have even been found in India, Russia, Canada, Argentina and Brazil!
These jellies only get to be about one inch (2.5 cm) in diameter but can have as many as 400 tentacles! They tend to be mostly translucent with a whitish or greenish tinge. This particular species really likes the warm weather and is more commonly reported when summers have higher temperatures than usual.
If you’re having a hotter-than-usual summer in your corner of the world, keep an eye out for the C. Sowerbii jellies!
