Your Field Guide to Spotting Poseidon (Neptune)

You have to watch out for Poseidon, god of the sea. He's a man of extremes. That guy is just like the ocean – sometimes he's super placid and calm, but at the drop of a hat he can flip out and cause tsunami-size devastation. If you make him mad, he's likely to send floods, storms, earthquakes, and/or a giant sea monster your way. So yeah, you might want to avoid him. Our advice: if you're chilling on the beach, and you see a muscular bearded guy driving a chariot across the ocean, you really ought to bury your head in the sand – especially if he's carrying a trident.
