    Aye I looked it up, google is our friend, I thought it was slang for something else.
    We have them here in America as well, according to Wiki.

    I'm pretty sure the kind of nettles they're talking about are sea nettles - not the kind in the woods

    Sea nettles will kick your ass - I remember them being pretty thick in south jerz a couple years ago.

    I know those, I've had my ass kicked by one of those when I was about 15. Ripped me along my back and down my right arm, getting wrapped/stuck/tangled around my forearm, wrist area, which I than grabbed with my left hand and ripped off.

    That was not a good night.

    These are just what I think of as "bigger" red jellies.

    I think you all have the clap. the itching and burning...yeah u need to get to a doctor. anyways, this has been the best year ever in delaware for a lack of sea lice and jellies-but also a lack of waves.
