Remember kids, organisms like to protect themselves and nature doesn’t give a shit about you.

Considering the widespread death and destruction humans have wreaked on the oceans I kind of like to think of this as the coral’s revenge.

Stick with dogs and cats!

Why can’t you use the correct chemical name? It’s (E,2S,3R,5R,8R,9S)-10-[(2R,3R,4R,5S,6R)-6-[(1S,2R,3S,4S,5R,11S)-12-[(1R,3S,5S,7R)-5-[(8S)-9-[(2R,3R,4R,5R,6S)-6-[(E,2S,3S,6S,9R,10R)-10-[(2S,4R,5S,6R)-6-[(2R,3R)-4-[(2R,3S,4R,5R,6S)-6-[(2S,3Z,5E,8R,9S,10R,12Z,17S,18R,19R,20R)-21-[(2R,3R,4R,5S,6R)-6-[(Z,3R,4R)-5-[(1R,3R,5S,6R)-6-[2-[(2R,3R,5S)-5-(aminomethyl)-3-hydroxyoxolan-2-yl]ethyl]-4,7-dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]octan-3-yl]-3,4-dihydroxypent-1-enyl]-3,4,5-trihydroxyoxan-2-yl]-2,8,9,10,17,18,19-heptahydroxy-20-methyl-14-methylidenehenicosa-3,5,12-trienyl]-3,4,5-trihydroxyoxan-2-yl]-2,3-dihydroxybutyl]-4,5-dihydroxyoxan-2-yl]-2,6,9,10-tetrahydroxy-3-methyldec-4-enyl]-3,4,5,6-tetrahydroxyoxan-2-yl]-8-hydroxynonyl]-1,3-dimethyl-6,8-dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]octan-7-yl]-1,2,3,4,5-pentahydroxy-11-methyldodecyl]-3,4,5-trihydroxyoxan-2-yl]-2,5,8,9-tetrahydroxy-N-[(E)-3-(3-hydroxypropylamino)-3-oxoprop-1-enyl]-3,7-dimethyldec-6-enamide.

There’s no evidence of a gas- sounds like an aerosol is far more likely.

Then you only have to worry about rabies, ringworm and toxoplasmosis! :wink:

Given the size of the molecule, definitely an aerosol. That thing is too heavy to vaporize, even heating will be more likely to decompose it rather than volatilize it.

I dunno, that paragraph seems lighter than air to me.
