As Long As It's NOT Tax Funded.


Sasquatch spotted in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Oh Brother.

Now researchers want to go look for it.

When I was younger I truly believed that the sasquatch really existed.

Most likely explanation: Hoax, Wishful thinking, Exaggeration, or Misinterpreting what one saw.

Possible: A bear or other animal was poorly seen.

Very Unlikely but still conceivable: A North American species of Primate

Unlikely to the point of inconceivable: A primitive man

If Nessie truly existed in Loch Ness, we'd have found solid evidence by now.

I also remember rumors of Sauropods being seen in the depths of jungles near the Congo River when I was in High School and there was some excitement about the possibility, even a movie called Baby, Secret of the Lost Legend which was about two American biologists discovering a baby Brontosaur in that area. It turned out to be just a local myth.

Sasquatch and Yeti could be normal animals of an ordinary type that have been misreported. Or they could be myths or wishful thinking. I do not expect them to find a Homo something-other-than-sapiens.

Now in all honesty, creatures such as the Giant Panda and the Giant Squid were unconfirmed a century or so ago, but I don't expect to see too many more large animals discovered on earth, except possibly in the depths of the sea.

It's not Sasquatch, it's just a teamster on a bender.

Interesting also, that the classic of Sasquatch Classics, the famous "Patterson-Gimlin" film of 1967 was declared both a hoax and a piece of reality.

I don't know whether there is any validity to all the hoopla over Sasquash or Nessie, but until they are proven to either exist or not exist I'll keep an open mind. One of the reasons is because of the Giant Panda and Giant Squid you referred to. Another reason is because people like Rosie O'Donnel and Michael Moore both exist. Nothing can really get much stranger than that!

Maybe research money would be better spent looking for Michigan's lost economy.

We have pictures of almost every deadly even that happens. There were even people who managed to catch the impacts on 9/11. Cameras are everywhere - I understand that there were plenty around to take pictures that will make Britney's kids roll their eyes.
And yet we have no pictures of AIR BREATHING critters when litterly thousands of people have been looking for them. Cripes ... whale hunters can find whales out of the OPEN ocean, and Nessie can hide in a landlocked lake? Right! Of course, maybe she has an aqualung??
Same as Bigfoot. There just isn't any part of the North American continent that's unexplored. Only people who think Mikey Moore makes "documentaries" could possibly believe that our picture-hungry society hasn't got any pictures of Mr. Sasquatch and the number of wives he'd have to have to keep that "race" going for hundreds of years. Heck, we can count birds during a migration but can't find Mr. Humungo? Gimmee a break!
