    If you look closely, you see it's Bigfoot.

    Big Foot has been vacationing in the Pacific NW. He has my iPhone so I'm tracking him.

    This is how 'Pacific Rim: Nessie's Pissed!' starts.
    I was involved in Post Production. NDAs are more guidelines than rules.

    A ship in a loch?

    I think the two likely possibilities are Nessy is real or that's a wind pattern on the water. But I'm only guessing.

    You're busted—Bigfoot doesn't have any pockets.

    Show me a live loch ness monster. Much more impressive! (And no autopsy required ;)).

    Could it be the Malaysian airliner?

    I was wondering the same thing.

     

    Any article with the following phrase must be a joke: "making the appearance of a mythical creature clearly the more reasonable explanation"

    It's a lake. The chances of a big sea creature existing there, swimming around for ages and ages without ever showing itself, or without anybody ever being able to clearly photograph or film it is close to zero. And no, fuzzy and grainy photographs do not count, and they're as legitimate as UFO hoaxes.

     

    Where are the dead loch ness monsters? Is the loch ness monster asexual? Doesn't it reproduce? Is there a family swimming around? Isn't it strange that no evidence of that exists at all, even though it's a lake, not a huge ocean.

     

    I'll change my mind when there is legitimate, scientific proof. Show me a dead loch ness monster, and conduct an autopsy. Same goes for aliens.


     

    But you believe in a god, right?

    My first thought was that it was the monster and I contacted Gary Campbell of the Official Loch Ness Monster Club,"

    Yes, naturally the very first thought of any sane, reasonable person.

    Yes I know this is far from proof, but the point is, we just can't say for sure. To make an absolute statement would be ridiculous, either for or against. This world is a crazy place, and with how vast our bodies of water are... you just never know. Plenty of species have evaded us. We have to have faith in how this crazy universe works just because most of it we'll never see, we'll never fully understand, and it sure as heck isn't scientific, most the time. It always remains theories. I expect some day in the future, whether it's a few hundred or thousands of years for things to defy our modern day "laws" of physics.

     

    Look back 500 years and see what they thought. Then a few thousand years. Now we think some things are silly, but we are not exempt of this notion. Whether it's science, society, or medical (chemo for example), our modern day ways will eventually be proven wrong, outdated, or desperate.

     

    Point being, never say never to the things unseen.

    Actually yeah, it is. I wouldn't go to the press before asking for some confirmation that I wasn't completely crazy.

    The article never explained why Apple maps were better than Google maps at finding Nessie! It kept saying they were but why???? More detailed in that area? More up to date? Constantly updated?

    Lame.


    Yeah, but at least she'll taste a lot better once we catch her.

    Comparing the image to the size of trees on the shore, the "Nessie" would have to be 100 feet long. Not possible.
