This is what George Bush was trying to warn us about, but did we listen!?

What is it about population dynamics that people don't understand?  Seriously, if there is such a thing there is not one or two or even 10 of them, there would have to be hundreds and the evidence would be plentiful.

We're still discovering new creatures on a daily basis, and extincting them twice as fast.

But i think the best evidence against a large intelligent ape living in the woods is that not only have we failed to find any with extensive deforestation, but none have fought back against that deforestation.

You need to get your head out of your cryptozoological ass.

That's just because THEY don't' want you to know.


That Bigfoot can make new Bigfeets without having a female.

So it is a beige bear or in latin ursus mulatto.

Insects and small mammals are creatures. The Saola and Sundaland clouded leopard aren't exactly tiny, either.

After DNA testing on alleged yeti hair, research scientist concludes it is a hybrid brown/polar bear


After doing testing on a piece of could-be yeti hair,

Scientist concludes it is a mix of brown and polar bear.


Read that to the tune of 'Modern Major General'.

I dont care about the yeti.   I just want to know if you can cross breed various bears.  I want a mix of grisley and asian black bear.

We're STILL discovering new species every year. Does this get people excited? No, because insects and deep-sea species don't have good PR behind them ... Americans only care about large mammalian discoveries that are never going to happen.

And how did the brown bear hair get on Bigfoot?

So can we elect this bear president, or was he born in Kenya?

With the arctic melting, grizzlies and polar bear crossbreeds happen. And they're bigger than both.

Not quite.

They are called Grolar Bears and they are of similar size.

The problem is that they maintain a polar bears carnivore diet (grizzlies are omnivores) but can live in warmer climates that have a lot more people who are edible.

I myself have a fondness for large mammals:

Oh, sure! They switched samples on us! It's a conspiracy to hide the truth of bigfootyeti!

Zebra bear?

Is it really so much work to type "causing them to go extinct..."? Please don't make verbs out of words that are not verbs.

Ehhhh.....

Large species are discovered in the waters, yes. Insect species are discovered all the time, yes. Slight variations of known species are found to be genetically distinct, yes.

Finding a large, bipedal, semi-intelligent ape? Now? When we cover so much of the earth's surface? Nope. No way.

And how did the brown bear hair get on Bigfoot?


Guess he wasn't there for the hunting.

Well that was pretty lame.

His stement is true and correct Whether bigfoot is real or not.

A simple Google search would have saved you your embarrassment.


Didn't Fark just recently have a  link to the discovery of the largest flying squirrel  known ?

Maybe if we had Six million dollars.
