CNN reports two men from Georgia have a 7ft tall half man half ape in a freezer. They will announce the findings today!

They have the "Bigfoot" yet are only going to show photos, and hand over DNA samples..hmmm, that just doesn't seem right.

I don't have a reference, but this was shown to be a hoax today (obviously). Heard it on the radio.

Hoax.

They should be tarred and feathered. Or should that be tarred and furred?

I cannot find where it has been proven to be a fraud yet, but it stinks of one.

The press conference transpired in Palo Alto.

As expected, they didn't show the "body," and as expected they said, again, the world will have to "wait and see" ... All the while Biscardi can do some deals to put some money in his pocket, from publishers, producers, etc., (and share it with the Georgia boys) before it is obvious to everyone that it was just another Biscardi hoax.

The only scientist involved with them (Curt Nelson) simply received a "DNA sample" in the mail. Three results so far from that sample: 1) unknown, 2) human, and 3) possum. Nelso will do more tests, but he has said his tests don't mean anything.

Biscardi claims that other scientists will be doing more studies on the body, which will make a nice excuse to string the media along for a few more weeks.

I seem to recall a wild super-hog that was found.



Here is an account of that - also from Georgia?

Hogzilla is actually real. There is even a documentary on it. I don't know if that picture is real, but there really was a super big hog found.

This is in no way intended as a defense, or to suggest that I put any truck in it - I am merely playing Devil's Advocate:

If ever there were such a Earth-shaking discovery made, it would be IMO, completely consistent that they would not simply reveal the whole she-bang at a public conference - or even anything conclusive.

To reveal anything conclusive would be to tip their money-making hand. There's little point in revealing such a huge discovery these days other than to secure one's financial- and media- future. I don't think even a hard-core scientist would be so altruistic to his field as to offer up his discovery for nothing more than academic recognition.


IOW, the fact that they have not revealed anything concluisve is in no way an indicator that it is a hoax.

Like it or not, they've got to milk this for all it's worth, even if it's real.



Now, that being said, I am still satisfied that it's a hoax.

If they really did find anything, they would WANT it to be certified as real beyond question. They would gain everything for having the proof. If they had solid evidence, just think how much money they could make off of it. Solid evidence would have people making pilgrimages to them.

This is obviously a publicity stunt to get some poor fools to cough over money for nothing.

This should prove amusing any way it goes.

Fox New Network had a photo of a close-up of the jaw and teeth.

Btw, hypatia, if I had a million dollar carcus in my freezer, I'd keep it close.

How much would a well crafted hoax in a freezer would be worth?

does this thread get moved back if the thing turns out to be real?

--nevermind---I see that it was combined with another thread

I'm going to be really pissed if this turns out to be Homer Simpson. He's had a good run, but I'm not ready for the show to be cancelled yet.

For those of you who didn't read the article, they've established a web site, where they charge a couple bucks to see their photos. They've established a limited liability corporation, apparently in the business of conducting bigfoot tours.

I wonder which came first, the LLC, the purchase of the domain name, or the alleged bigfoot sighting. Perhaps there was a recent acquisition of a freezer out of it's place on the time-line.
