Florida Lies in Hurricane Fay’s Projected Path

NOAA is reporting that Florida lies in the way of Hurricane Fay’s projected path. Visitors and tourists of the Keys were ordered to evacuate the oncoming tropical storm.

NOAA expects Fay to upgrade to a category one hurricane once it hits the projected path on the South Western tip of Florida.

Bigfoot or Big Hoax?

The Searching for Bigfoot press release was somewhat disappointing with lots of skeptical journalists trying to get down to facts. Facts that DNA evidence do not support.

As reported in CNN:

“They released a purported DNA result, although it was uncertain if the DNA info was supposed to be compared to other primates.”

According to Reuters, Bigfoot is simply a huge opossum:

“One of the two samples of DNA said to prove the existence of the Bigfoot came from a human and the other was 96 percent from an opossum, according to Curt Nelson, a scientist at the University of Minnesota who performed the DNA analysis.”

Sorry folks, the Whitton-Dyer Bigfoot is simply a hoax.

Bigfoot Sightings Remains Illusive

Yesterday, since Searching for Bigfoot announced that they would provide DNA evidence on the Bigfoot remains found in Georgia, sighting confessions have been popping up all over the internet.

Now that remains of a sasquatch was found in the northern part of Georgia, everyone is seeing the “Big Guy” all over the place.

Yet the creature seems illusive to me and it escapes me that after closely examining the picture of Bigfoot in the freezer, the face reminds me of the Gorilla suit worn by one on the actors in the movie Trading Places.

Time will tell when the DNA evidence suggest that the Bigfoot Whitton and Dyer actually found was a Gorilla.

Body of Bigfoot Found in Georgia

Two hunters claim to found a body of an animal which resembles the mythical Bigfoot creature in Georgia. The creature was found by Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer in the woods in northern GA.

Dyer and Whitton literally put the Bigfoot body on ice storing the dead animal in a freezer to preserve the remains.

Some interesting facts about the Bigfoot creature is that

  • The creature’s foot measures over 16 inches long; hence the Bigfoot name
  • The creature weighs over 500 lbs
  • The creature is over 7′ tall

Did Whitton and Dyer really find Bigfoot? Or is this just another publicity stunt? According to Searching for Bigfoot, Inc., they will report the DNA test results on the body to determine what this creature is to determine if a new species was found called “Bigfoot.”

1500 lb Super Earth Man Needs to Lose Weight

If you haven’t heard the about the Super Earth discovered, it’s about 7.5 the mass of Earth.

Thought of the day: If the gravity is proportional to the mass difference, my 200 lb frame is 1500 lbs on that planet.  Now that’s phat and I need to go on a diet.
