I don't know what link he's talking about either, but I did a google search for freshwater jellyfish and found a few sites. This was the top one:

Ok, that is bizzare. I've never seen nor heard of them. One thing I found really odd was "where you find them". It said things like resevoirs and gravel pits filled with water. Ok, how does any creature come to live in a water filled gravel pit unless it was placed there? So I did a bot more looking. Here is another site I found on them with a cool video clip from right here in my state of Minnesota! You can hear how we really sound up here. Ya sure ya betcha! lol

My step-dad's family all lives in Minnesota (St.Paul), so I've taken many trips up there to visit them. They have the strongest accents! The only who doesn't is my step-dad, who moved from Minn about 20 years ago. I didn't find the accents from the people in the clip to be very strong at all. Is it stronger in some cities than others?...or is my step-dad's family just 'special?'

I personally think most of us sound like the video clip people myself, but you do encounter SOME old folks with strong accents. You are from California I know and Like fer sure people from California have way bigger accents then us. lol :wink:

People from Cali don't have accents! lol Seriously though, I think the only people in Cali who have accents are the Northern valley girls. :P I love Minn accents, though. They're the best. :)

that's ok mga. At first I thought you were just making it up, but then jobot posted a link and I looked further, or should I say closer to home. :lol:
Glad you like the accents jobot. If you've ever seen the movie "Fargo"....ahhh well lets just say they went to quite the extreme with our accents. LOL However, everyone around here jokingly talked like that for awhile.
