Do you believe there is Bigfoot?

Saturday mornings used to be pleasant and musical with the neighbour's daughter practising on the piano. She must have been at a higher grade because the pieces she played were complicating... and very nice pieces too. Yes, she used to brighten up Saturday mornings. Unfortunately, her music no longer fills the air since she moved out.

We have a different kind of 'music' now. This morning another neighbour was exercising her lungs yelling at the monkeys. We have monkeys in the neighbourhood and they do mess up the place, littering and destroying plants. They must have irked the neighbour so much to have her filling this Saturday morning with her chiding.

From one primate to another, do you believe in the existence of Bigfoot? Of late, there has been a lot of hype of this upright-walking 7-footer and their sightings. Some months back, it was even reported to be sighted in Johore. None was found. I find it hard to believe that Bigfoot would be found here, in Malaysia? We may have gorillas but Bigfoot? Nah!!

Recently, a pair of Bigfoot-hunting hobbyists from north Georgia say they found the creature's body in a wooded area and spotted several similar creatures that were still alive. A photograph on that group's Web site shows what appears to be the body of a large, hairy creature with an ape-like face, stuffed into a large freezer. Here is that picture.

    It's indeed refreshing to wake up to the melodious sound of piano playing!

    Universe is a mystical place, who knows what really exist out there?! My motto is, never say never.

  3. MBL, I believe in seeing is believing. Looks like this time, there is strong evidence of its existence. I look forward to more news of it.

    CC, it is refreshing indeed - a great start to a day.

    Never say never is wise for we share the universe with a lot of others.

  4. What happened to the Bigfoot spotted a couple of years ago in Endau Rompin? Has the trail gone cold?

  5. Hey, as a native of the Pacific Northwest, I most definitely believe in sasquatch (i.e. Bigfoot)!

    That whole Bigfoot carcass thing is full of more holes than a sponge. The fact that it was found by a couple of hobbyist bigfoot hunters is enough to make one suspicious. I looked up the story on one of the leading cryptozoology (i.e. study of strange or legendary creatures) websites, and they showed that the head of the carcass looks suspiciously like that of a well-known bigfoot costume available for purchase online.

    A scientist who did a DNA test on a sample from the carcass said it was partly human and mostly opossum. He admitted that the sample may have been contaminated, but it's looking more and more like this is a monumental hoax.

    Kind of a shame, really. I was hoping it was the real thing.

  6. MB, nothing came out of it. The news has died down.

    MM, I too believe there is sasquatch. Have you personally experienced anything related to it?

    So this carcass is more likely a hoax? Yeah, kind of a shame. But then again, can it not have some human DNA too? It walks upright for one thing.
