I saw two bigfoots.

Then I put a sock on them.

Update on the Sasquatch Habitat Investigation Team (S.H.I.T.)

They have found BIGFOOT VOCALS/WOODKNOCKS

1 Minute in approximately
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxSJwugza4E&t=1280s

I think I hear a dog.

Anyone else hear anything?

If an idiot hears a tree fall in the forest, does it make a bigfoot sound?

I think my answer is "NO" but I could not find the time in the video the knock/sound is supposed to occur. The "researcher" sure likes his knives! Are they for protection? Against bigfoot?

"Mostly harmless?"

Saw a video on Youtube where a guy is cutting big tree limbs with a machete (I was learning how to use one) out in the woods, stating that he's heard knocking sounds out there before and can't imagine what they could be.


Ya you gotta be that dumb.

I hear she has big knockers.

You're really digging in the weeds here. It must be January.

Still, it's funny how fads die, and I think bigfoot is even more of a pathetic joke at this point. I mean, we have Trump now, and we don't need anything stupider than that.

The number of bigfoot research sites that are now dead links is huge.

For example, can anyone listen to any of these old interview?
I keep getting playback error.

Me too. The site mixcloud.com is up but letstalkbigfoot is gone. Nothing on the Wayback Machine.

I tried Googling for >Adrienne Mayor Interview< and got a few hits however. So the interviews may be available with a bit of effort.

The technology has made it increasingly impossible to play the Bigfoot Live Action Alternate Reality Game.

Game cams, drones, satellite images... there's no place for bigfoot to hide.

If you have footprints, then there is also going to be DNA evidence and Wallace-type stompers can't plant nonexistent DNA. Rock-throwing too - if Bigfoot threw the rock then it has DNA on it.

It was an interesting run discussing it over the years here and I am very well satisfied the membership figured it out. BLAARGing. Because once you understand it as an Alternate Reality Game then the frustration of trying to logically engage with a player is removed. They don't believe in Bigfoot themselves. The same way a con artist does not believe he is a Prince from Nigeria with $10 million to share with you.

This is the correct take. Imagine thinking that a beast that doesn't use exfoliants, and also has large numbers of hairs, is not leaving skin cells or hairs on literally everything it touches, is ridiculous.

Chuff brought this up back when the NAWAC was claiming rock chucking,
Quote:
From now on, NAWAC members should carry gloves and then bag the rocks that are thrown at them as the rocks could contribute DNA. At this point, it takes very few skin cells to get a DNA sample , and there could be sweat or oils there too to contribute a sample or even a finger prints. Also I doubt that "wood apes" wash their hands after urinating/ defecating and before they chuck the rocks, so those sources could also contribute DNA that could be present on the sample.

And though primates may throw rocks and other items , they frequently throw something far more unpleasant; the fact that no one has had a handful of steaming feces thrown at them is very odd since that is far more in keeping with primate behavior than rocks.
http://www.internationalskeptics.com...&postcount=279

So not only thrown rocks, but the "NUT CRACKING STATION" would chock full O' DNA as well.

Also can a NAWAC member let us know if they ever found the tracker tag?

Was it attached to a dead owl?

Please update us.

That was my contention very early on, a bird either got hung up in it or flew off with it. The morons at BFF couldn't get their pea brains around that LOL!

Why, that's a reasonable question. Not that you do, but don't expect a reasonable reply.

Bigfoot stories have long involved candy.

I believe Zagnut was prominent in one of the stories.

That would be the Candysquatch thread. Mike Greene and thermal imaging were involved.
