Yes, yes. What sort of evil genius could read a BFRO report and type something similar. It's almost impossible.

Well, when you have spent a lifetime looking for the subject and have completely and totally come up empty (with the subsequent feelings of frustration and dejection)...

...come back here and we'll let you know the reason for the failure.

He feels that a discovery can happen within the next 3 years, but isn't willing to bet on it. Ironically, OS doesn't seem to have much more confidence in it being him or his "team" who make said discovery...despite having supposedly encountered Bigfoot on a couple of occasions.

I'm pretty sure you've rambled on before about going out into the woods with people, and that's all I essentially meant, as there are no valid "research" teams out there who're thick enough to go looking for a figment of Roger Patterson's imagination. Didn't you have a thermal sighting, or is that Northern Lights? I remember the first time I smoked some Northern Lights, didn't see a single Squatch.

OntarioSquatch,

How many female Bigfeet have been spotted by anyone who sees them?
All of the research I have done (meaning reading some of the same stuff you do)
barely mentions any Bigfeet with the mid torso breasts.

Have you done any research here at International Skeptics or when it was JREF?

Bill Munns came here and it ended in tears. (Bill Munns refused to share any of his
work.)

It was quite educational for me. It showed me quite clearly what someone will do or
say to keep the illusion going.

PS Did you answer my question about your experience with guns?

The Golden Age of the Bigfoot Fetish is over. It's downhill from here and everyone knows it. When everyone in the woods has a cellphone with camera the excuses for no pictures or video devolve from special pleading to kicking and screaming. Sure, you can walk around the woods with a thermal camera and pretend to be hunting as they do on Finding Bigfoot but eventually even the stupidest Footies will notice that they never find anything.

Bigfilter has conspired with bigcamera to digitally exclude bigfoot from all exposure. Look for the tell-tale shrubbery or suggestive logs that cover him.

Isn't this the same logical fallacy you criticized earlier? You are making a decision regarding the veracity of a video/film based on outside factors rather than on the video evidence itself. At least those who don't believe the PGF have at least seen it.

Here the sole appears to be square at the heel. It is generally regarded as an illusion.



Here the sole appears to be ovoid. It is generally regarded as an illusion



Here the toes appear to be flexing upwards. It is generally regarded as not being an illusion. I think it needs to be further examined as being another illusion.

These two images are of the same frame from the PGF. There is a vertical stick or twig in front of the left calf. Note how the length and thickness of that stick is different in the two images. I did not scale the two images so that they would be the same size, but I believe that a point can be made here anyway.

I think I understand the phenomenon on film known as "bloom" whereby light-colored and/or overexposed objects become larger and/or change shape. You can see that happening with the stick. But I think that that can't really be the end of the story. It would seem that darker objects (such as Patty herself) would become smaller and/or change shape because of the "invasion" of the blooming of lighter objects in the background or foreground.

This suggests to me that there may be challenges to determining true size and/or shape of almost anything in the PGF stills. I cannot say if this phenomenon is entirely eliminated when examining the higher-quality still frames. Additionally, the bloom phenomenon is not going to be limited to the outline/silhouette of Patty. There are lighter and darker areas all over her body, head and face which would be subject to bloom and therefore changing size and/or shape.

This would seem to matter in any analysis in which there is discussion of size and shape of any feature.

I would accept that excuse even now. I can barely take acceptable pictures of my own cat using my cell phone, which is a pity because she is a beautiful Siamese with white boots and mittens.

Certainly. This is the whole problem.

Bad pictures happen. Some people don't have the knack of taking pictures.

However, if 2 million tourists strolled through your place every year, some of them with thousands of dollars of camera kit, others with the proclaimed intention of taking pictures of your cat, then you can bet your sweet bippy that some amazing pictures of your cat would be out there.

If I can go on a whale watch and take this, why aren't there any pictures of Bigfoot this good?

I guess it must mean that orca are more common, and less intelligent than Bigfoot, and find it more difficult to hide.

They are everywhere! If there's a blur, it's a Bigfoot. If there's cover, Bigfoot is behind it. That is why they have spread from coast to coast without being seen on roads, bridges, or crossing rivers.
