Bigfoot: still no evidence but they keep on tryin'
 
Time for another bigfoot thread! Here's a fun article to start it off: some Bigfoot researchers wrote a paper (as yet unpublished) claiming they found bite marks on some bones that could have only been made by a bigfoot, citing a scientist's paper as supporting their conclusion. The scientist heard about it and shared her own conclusions. (Spoiler: she says they completely misinterpreted/misrepresented her paper and their 'evidence' is nothing of the sort.)

Obviously those tooth marks were made by drop bears, not anything so fanciful as sasquatch!

Some see Bigfoot photo-bombing Michigan eagle's nest cam
 
A potentially legendary photo-bomber has stolen the spotlight from a bald eagle nest live cam in Beulah.

Why is everyone focusing on Bigfoot when the footage provides evidence of giant eagles. Even the babies are like three times bigger than the Sasquatch. The world is a lot more scary than we thought.

In that cause it's a yowie.

Some guy uploaded a 90 minute 'documentary' about his search for the Sasquatch:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrffQDTXQkY

His father had an 'experience' years ago and he goes back to the same place and spends a few days there, then he goes and hangs out in a different forest with a few friends for a few days. They find a few vague possible footprints in the forest and some odd handprints on the window of their car but they never actually see anything. They set up trail cams all over the place but never even mention the results.

There's really really nothing compelling in this video at all, the only reason I mention it is because I found his father's recounting of his 'experience' at the 6:00 point in the video interesting. He was fishing on a remote lake with a friend and a large rock came tumbling down the gravel slope, then soon after another large rock came flying through the air and actually hit a tree and bent it way over. He's 100% convinced it was a Bigfoot trying to warn them off and you can tell it really had a big impact on him that changed his life but even his son admits it could have just been loose rocks tumbling and bouncing down the slope. This is how urban legends start ...

I have big feet! Most of my family does in fact. Hairy bodies and wandering through the woods? No, not so much.

me, no really 28 July 2017 11:19 PM

I am pretty sure that my son is working on becoming an Aussie Bigfoot. We will be getting shoes custom made soon if he doesn't stop with the feet growing, and he does like wandering through the bush...

Australian Bigfoots are apparently called Yowies. Make sure to warn your son to steer clear of the Yowie hunters. http://www.yowiehunters.com.au/ :lol:

When I was younger, my feet grew at such a rate that my mother was afraid she wouldn't be able to find shoes that would fit me. They finally stopped growing when I was around 12. While I do not like wandering in the bush, I do like occasional walks in the park.

I am the opposite. My feet are so small that I have occasionally bought children's shoes as an adult. They are about the smallest size commonly available for adult woman so I quite often get good bargains.

When I was a school kid, always brought me properly fitted good quality school shoes (for growing feet) and because I had (still do) small narrow feet, we would seem to spend hours in the shoe shop making sure I got the correct fit. Well it probably wasn't really hours but it seemed like. I claim it is could very well be the reason I am not obsessed with shoes the way women are supposed to be. ;)

DNA tests reveal the Yeti's not-so-abominable identity
 
The results are in and we finally have some answers about the mysterious and enigmatic legend of the Yeti, the cryptid sometimes called the Abominable Snowman or Bigfoot's Asian cousin.

Meanwhile, Lindqvist says she wouldn't mind having more Yeti bones to further some of her work into the evolution of Asian bear species.

"Further genetic research on these rare and elusive animals may help illuminate the environmental history of the region, as well as bear evolutionary history worldwide -- and additional 'Yeti' samples could contribute to this work."
Best scientist slam ever! You go girl!

Seaboe Muffinchucker 29 November 2017 06:51 PM

How is that a scientist slam, GenYus?

Seaboe

GenYus234 29 November 2017 08:44 PM

Slam by a scientist, not slam against a scientist.

Seaboe Muffinchucker 30 November 2017 01:57 PM

Ah. Sorry. Thanks.
