Speaking of cryptids, some group in Georgia says that they have the body of a dead Bigfoot and they are going to show it to the press tomorrow in a big news conference. Most likely a major hoax, but just possibly the scientific discovery of the century.
I'd be interested in seeing the photos when they're published. I wonder why cryptozoologists try so hard to prove things existence. Wouldn't they be out of a job if, say, a bigfoot was found to be real? There would be nothing to research.
I always have to chuckle at the end of Monsterquest episodes because they seem to repeat themselves. "The motion capture camera only managed to capture a passing duck and no monster". Still I watch though knowing they'll never find anything.
Yeah - when they go to commercial they like to leave viewers hanging with a teaser that goes something like "Did our intrepid Sasquatch hunters finally obtain hard evidence of this elusive cryptological creature's existence?" and the payoff is always: "Aaaaaaah - it's another duck."
I like when they hype it up before commercial break as well. Its always like this;
Annoucer: Coming up, the team reviews the footage...and find something shocking
Researchers (looking at screen): Wow look at the size of that!
When they come back from commercial we find out they were reacting to a rather large flock of ducks when they said "look at the size of that".
