Arkanaut: Arkanaut: I don't think blimps are technically "rigid airships". That would be something like a zeppelin, which has a rigid frame around which the skin of the balloon is stretched.

Aha! The Wikipedia article on blimps even specifically says they are "non-rigid airships".

Wow, that's fascinating.

Ancient Aliens told me we haven't found bigfoot because he's an alien. And there are wormholes hidden in the woods. Or something like that.

Of course Bigfoot (actually 'Sasquatch', but there's no need to be PC about this now) exists. T. Roosevelt knew this, and that's why he created the national parks to prevent their land from being encroached upon.

They are even prepared to spend a few days in a nearby forest. Suggestions?


Keep your eyes down and yer mouf shut. Don't go lighting fireworks, or having a 'rave' in the forest, like some TV shows we know. 'Bigfoots', when not moving about, tend to lie down, and when moving, stop near trees a lot. They are afraid of you! They'll run before they'll attack, so stop and shoot that non-shaky video we've all been waiting for. Have a measuring stick handy (a three-fold section of a folding ruler works real well) to place next to evidence when taking pictures. If you can get a Flir camera, it'll improve your ability to spot animals in the dark. Mostly, knowing what a bigfoot does will get you results.

Candygram for Mongo: "I think Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. Bigfoot is blurry, and that's extra scary to me. There's a large, out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside. Run, he's fuzzy, get out of here."


And did you know that the Japanese have pixelated junk? I learned this on the internet.

Got a really good friend (always been rational and scientific in thought) who has embraced the whole bigfoot thing compltely. They did a little research, which led to more and more. Now they are a total believer. I still refuse to accept it...but they are convinced. And they are presenting me with some convincing arguments. They are even prepared to spend a few days in a nearby forest. Suggestions?


Get new friends, stat

Well, obviously I'm not getting the core concept.
