While most species out there tend to die at some point, there is a specific breed of jellyfish that has developed a way to live forever. Nicknamed the ‘Immortal Jellyfish,’ Turritopsis dohrnii is capable of escaping death, permanently.
Jellyfish lifespans normally range from a few hours to a couple months, with only one species living up to thirty years. The Immortal Jellyfish, however, can morph back to its infant stage after reproducing, thus recreating its own lifespan. Imagine living a whole life, growing old and gaining loads of memories, only to revert back to a young child after reproducing. The Immortal Jellyfish can continue this process for as long as it is capable of reproducing, forever becoming young again. As far as we understand it, there is nothing else like this located on this planet.

I'm about to graduate with my BS in Psychology and then I'm headed off to grad school. I do have fibromyalgia, a chronic pain and nerve disorder, so I relate to invisible illnesses. I love learning new things, fandoms, and quotes. I'm here if anyone needs to talk, and I never stop looking for the positive in life.
Anonymous asked: I've been married to an emotionally, verbally and now physically abusive man for 4 years. He wasn't like this until after he joined the military. After our son was born it got so bad I became severely depressed and suicidal because I couldn't stand knowing my son was growing up in this type of home. The first time grabbed me and did anything physical was a week ago- Mother's Day weekend. I left for the night, but now he says he's getting help. Please be honest, will he actually change?
They all say they’ll get help, they all say they’re...
