Are they living with that mammoth videoed crossing that river?

And just like their North American cousins, every single one of them manages to die someplace where no sign of their bodies are ever found.

That is because, at least in the case of the North American Bigfoot, there is a terrible civil war raging among the Bigfeet, who reside in an alternate dimension. They come to our dimension to escape the ravages of war. If they die here, their bodies revert to their home dimension. That's why you never find any Bigfoot skeletons.

At least, that was the explanation that some guy stood up and gave on Portland's now-defunct public affairs show, "Town Hall," some years back. *shrug* Sounds plausible.

They created some bullshiat team building thing at work where I am now in a group called the "Yellow Yetis." As stupid as that sounds, at least I'm not a "Purple Pixie."

/when corporations get "ideas"... I mean, initiatives.

I warned them. I really did. But did they listen? No, no they didn't. My family just had to have a reunion and yet they never gave another thought that all that hair over them would kill the Gillette razor contract.

It's common knowledge that Yetis exist, but he got the location wrong. The majority live in North America and quite a few also seem to live in Europe.

I don't beleave in yeti for the same reason I don't buy into Bigfoot. If they exist how come none have ever been struck and killed by cars? I mean people run over deer, bears and people why not big foot
 
2012-11-03 05:58:09 AM  
Stock photo? Look at the disc drive and the size of the monitor. Even a brief visit to that university's site show that Russia isn't *that* far behind the curve. That, and what is a guy with an autoclabe doing talking about yetis? Either this is a misused stock photo, or he's talking about a diferent field and not respected enough by his employer to have decent equipment for his research.

Not to discount the guy's credibility, but that computer looks exactly like the ones we used in the vo-tech lab in high school in 1991.

I don't see any yetis anywhere... Yeti? Yetis? I don't see anyone.

It's also been being logged and mined as fast as people can get out there to exploit it for the last 20-30 years, hasn't it? I bet it's not the wilderness it used to be.

Quick google search suggest that logging in Siberia is largely illegal.

A quick google search also suggests that I now want a Siberian forest cat. The forest itself is also really pretty.
