There is a magical lake in the Rock Islands of Palau where you can swim with the jellyfish worry-free.

image

The lake became a tourist attraction and people can go swimming and snorkeling with them.

The jellyfish lost their stingers over the years because they don’t need them to fight off predators.

WHO WAS THAT FOR AGAIN?Many of the Beatles songs were inspired by people you might not expect. Here are a few of my favorites.
Martha My Dear from the White Album was written about Paul’s Sheepdog, Martha.
Sexy Sadie, also from the White Album, was written about the Maharishi, who in spite of being a guru (and thus, supposed to be celibate) fooled around with women while the boys were visiting him in India.
Let It Be, from the album of the same name, was written by Paul not for the Virgin Mary, but for his own mother, whose name was Mary. This certainly changed the way I hear the lyric “Mother Mary comes to me.”
Dear Prudence off of the White Album was written for someone they met in India who took to shutting herself off from people, hence why John asks her to “come out to play.”
Blackbird, again off of the White Album, was written by Paul as a tribute to people of color in America fighting for equality during the civil rights movement.
I’ve never gotten full confirmation on it as a real thing, but I’d like to think that Baby’s In Black was about Astrid Kirchherr after the death of her lover Stuart Sutcliffe, one of the original Beatles.
Julia, another White Album track, was dedicated dually to John’s mother (whose name was Julia, and was the namesake of his son Julian) and also to Yoko Ono.
This Boy, released as a single, was a song written as a “Ringo’s Theme Song” of sorts.
Famously, Hey Jude (another single) was written by Paul to console Julian Lennon during John and Cynthia’s divorce.
When John wrote Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite for the album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, he was inspired by an old circus sideshow poster.
