They are so mesmerizing as they laze through the water. They look as if they don't have a care in the world. If I had to use one word to describe the guys, I'd call them peaceful but you have to be kind of careful around them, because their tentacles can be quite long and sting.
When I was growing up, we tried to avoid the Portuguese Man of War's which floated on the surface of the ocean. I hated being anywhere near them because their tentacles had one mean sting. Everyone had their home remedy to ease the pain. Mine was simple, I rubbed wet sand over the area.

I took a quick look at Portuguese Man of Wars and guess what? Turns out they are not jelly fish but two organisms who work together. One organism is the base and the other is the tentacles.
I think I'd prefer watching a performance of dancing jelly fish to being anywhere near the Portuguese Man of War, ever.
