ertznay: Did the reporter really just use the term 'money shot'?
Still a skeptic.

I dunno, he keeps saying that the thermal image can't be faked, but I'd like to see images under the same conditions of a guy in a suit and of a bear. Probably was one of his fellow BFFs (big foot finders) playing a joke on him, and now they can't admit it because he went off so intensely about it.

Oh. Asheboro and the Uwharrie National Forest. Once home to thousands of bootleggers, now home to some of the best pot grown in the eastern US.

Make of that what you will.

JusticeandIndependence: What was really amazing to me was the audio. I only had one ear bud in at first and wondered why I could hear the announcer and not the guy talking. Why did they do that?

That was some truly annoying audio. The reporter was talking in between the crazy guy, I've never heard that except on the radio when the DJ just can't shut the hell up at the beginning of a song.

Use a hairdryer to heat up the bigfoot suit and you have a nice full heat sig.

Bigfoot, is that you? I'm not like the others, Bigfoot. I see through the monster coating to the gentle loner inside. I bet you have a wounded raccoon friend that you tenderly nurse back to health while you go, "Rooh! Rooh!" But in the end they shoot you, but you teach us about things.

Remember, it's up to us. Bigfoot is a crucial part of the ecosystem, if he exists. So let's all keep Bigfoot possibly alive for future generations, unless he doesn't exist. The end!

AmazinTim: I think Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. There's a large, out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside. Bigfoot is blurry, and that's extra scary to me.

Wouldn't that just make him a version of a displacer beast?

Even if this supposed megafauna hominid is INCREDIBLY shy/elusive, I'm still waiting for the explanation of zero findings -- over the past two centuries of "sightings" -- of Bigfoot corpses, hair, poop, bedding/nesting sites or fossils. Anyone? Bueller?

Or just use the image setting where hot = black.

2010-11-02 01:35:17 PM  
The best part is how all you experts have absolutely no clue how thermal imaging works. If he faked thermal video, he's good. Damn good.

As for the answer on why no Bigfoot corpses have ever been found, they bury their dead.

I just left the last bigfoot crying by a tree the other night. He asked me to shoot him, but I didn't have the heart.


Obscure? No.

SarahBW: It's a bear.

Fuzzier than I expected. But yes, I think I saw the thing rear up several times, which is what bears do. You don't get many Bigfoot sightings in Maine (or Eastern Canada) because everybody knows the woods are full of black bears and the woods are also full of hunters and fishermen who are experienced enough to recognize the signs of a black bear.

There are also black bears in places like Florida, but there are more people who haven't got the woodcraft to tell a black bear from a cryptid.

If there are Bigfoot out there, they should be turning up on camera pretty soon and on Facebook within minutes after that. All the men in my family got motion-sensitive cameras for Christmas in the last couple of years. Every hunter who is more than half serious puts out a salt lick and watches it for signs of deer, moose and bear. With the cameras, they can put the salt licks out and watch them 24/7, day and night.

There is no wild animal that doesn't like salt. It's hard to get unless you are a carnivor. Bears are omnivors so they'll check out anything.

Putting out fruit and chocolate bars will get you a bear in no time at all unless Bigfoot has a tremendous sense of smell and no caution whatsover around manifestly human artifacts and scents.

If there is one thing we know about Bigfoot is that she is as shy as a fugly Catholic religious novice in a nunnery full of bull dykes. The scent of man, let alone a plastic box, should send her running the other way.

The guy's got the right idea, but you need a really good non-fuzzy photograph to prove anything. Fuzzy dots prove nothing.

Mind you, if Bigfoot is real and as sly as she would have to be, then you might go for a 100 years without getting a good photo. There are still big cats and other large mammals that have been photographed only once in the wild, or not at all.

I heard they eat their dead. They're a very resourceful bunch.

In "Harry and the Hendersons," didn't John Lithgow's character use a candy bar to lure Harry the sasquatch into his car?

But did it say "goonie goo-goo"? That's the only way to be sure, Gus.

There are some who claim to have found fur and feces. The best labs could do in analyzing it was to say, "This doesn't match any known animal." or sometimes "It could be from a combination of creatures, but we don't know."

So nothing conclusive. It does help to have discovered an animal in order to use its stool or hair to identify it.

I'm skeptical about almost everything, but I saw... Something... when I was a teenager, and I have yet to figure out how it could have been faked, or why anyone would bother to do it when nobody was around to see them, on private property.

Apparently, even if you do shoot him, he just gets up and runs away.

He really doesn't mean it when he asks you to shoot him.

I'd agree with this, except that when you see the arms as it's standing by the tree, they're definitely too long to be bear arms.

I don't know what it is. I don't think it's a bear, though.

If you look closely, you can see she has protrusions on her chest that suggest breasts of Dolly Partonesque proportions. Sorry for the NSFW picture.

I don't know why, but I don't believe it. Call it a hunch.

Uwharrie is way too well traveled by hikers, mountain bikers, 4-wheeled/jeep enthusiasts, loggers, and forestry personnel that there is no way this idiot captured it first.

Dr.Zom:
Bigfeet are sighted all over the country. Texas, Michigan, Missouri, Florida (but not Maine, curiously). Even Kansas has sightings. I've been reading old newspapers about Kansas sightings from the 19th century for the last few months.


Darn, I haven't seen anything but turkeys, coyotes, and a bobcat. I need to start putting out some candy bars.
