I hope you get eaten by a shark.
The Portuguese Man O' War (Physalia physalis), also known as the Portuguese Man-Of-War, Man-Of-War, or Bluebottle, is a jellyfish-like marine cnidarian of the family Physaliidae. Its venomous tentacles can deliver a powerful sting.
Stings usually cause severe pain to humans

We have them wash up on our beaches all the time here in australia. We call them the blue bottle, which people have already stated here.
When you walk around our beaches, it's good to keep an eye out as they can often go unnoticed due to their clear structure. They are usually just washed up on the sand or in the shallow water, but the point is, they pop up like lego bricks on the floor. Even a dead one can discharge its cells if a person steps on it by mistake.
Hence why i'm not massive on going to the beach here haha.
