Are Jellyfish Trying To Kill Us?

And we thought sharks were dangerous!

An invasion of jellyfish into a cooling water pool at a Scottish nuclear power plant kept its nuclear reactors offline on Wednesday, a phenomenon which may grow more common in future, scientists said.

Apparently nuclear power plants draw water from nearby seas or rivers to cool down their reactors, but if the filters which keep out marine animals and seaweed are clogged, the station shuts down to maintain temperature and safety standards.

We're not experts on nuclear science or anyshiz — but we're pretty sure this could cause some lagit radiation and/or explosions.

But, we hear everything's fine and they are currently working to clear the jellyfish from the waters near the power station.

Plan foiled for now, jellyfish!
