Bigfoot DNA

I really enjoyed this Coast to Coast interview with Dr. Melba Ketchum, regarding DNA testing of hair samples found at a Bigfoot sighting.  The findings seem to support an earlier post regarding Sasquatch being more human than ape.  Cannibal City.

The Devil And Joseph Bonaparte

Joseph Bonaparte, the brother of Napoleon, was the King of Spain. Unsuccessful in defending Spain against England during the Peninsular Wars, he was forced to abdicate his throne in 1813. Following Napoleon's defeat, he went into exile in America. Joseph purchased eight-hundred acres at Bordentown, New Jersey because it was between the two great sea ports of New York and Philadelphia. From this place, he could obtain the very latest news from France and Spain.

As befitting royalty - even the dethroned sort - Joseph built himself a lovely mansion with beautiful, landscaped grounds and plenty of parkland. Joseph Bonaparte entertained many of the great men of his day, including John Adams, the Marquis of Lafayette, and Daniel Webster. He led a very glamorous social life, throwing marvelous parties with mountains of food and many guests. The Americans were very impressed with him.

One snowy afternoon, the ex-King of Spain was hunting alone in the woods near his house when he spotted some strange tracks on the ground. They looked like the tracks of a two-footed donkey. Bonaparte noticed that one foot was slightly larger than the other. The tracks ended abruptly as if the creature had flown away. He stared at the tracks for a long moment, trying to figure out what the strange animal might be.

At that moment, Bonaparte heard a strange hissing noise. Turning, he found himself face to face with a large winged creature with a horse-like head and bird-like legs. Astonished and frightened, he froze and stared at the beast, forgetting that he was carrying a rifle. For a moment, neither of them moved. Then the creature hissed at him, beat its wings, and flew away.

When he reported the incident to a friend later that day, Bonaparte was told that he had just seen the famous Jersey Devil, who had haunted the Pine Barrens ever since he was born to Mother Leeds one dark and stormy night in 1735. Bonaparte was impressed by the story of the Jersey Devil, and thereafter kept a lookout for the fabulous creature whenever he went hunting. Once things settled down in Europe, Joseph Bonaparte returned to Europe and was reunited with his wife in Italy. He never saw the Jersey Devil again.

Native Americans And Bigfoot

An intriguing interview with anthropologist Kathy Strain, author of Giants, Cannibals, & Monsters.  I think it's very interesting to hear that most Native Americans believed Sasquatch to be a "brother" rather than a primate.  But worse - a cannibal.  In some cases, their oral history tells of warfare with Bigfoots, due to their use of Indian children as a food source.

In the years of enjoying programs about Sasquatch, I've seen many a Bigfoot hunter bring up the fact that the American Indian believed in the existence of these hairy beasts.  They do so as a "Look, I'm not a crazy person.  The Indians believe what I believe.  So are you calling American Indians crazy?"  Funny that they stop short of mentioning the cannibal part.  Cherry-picking at its finest.

Kinda makes the Finding Bigfoot episode where they used Girl Scouts as bait to attract curious child-loving beasts somewhat disturbing.

I knew that my life-long fear/hate/distrust of Bigfoot wasn't unfounded.  The American Indian backs me up on this. 
You calling them crazy?

Now Playing: In The Fog

The fog, sinking into the valley, had reached southward, swallowing up ranch after ranch, until it had blotted out the town of St. Helena, nine miles away.  The dust in the road was laid; trees were adrip with moisture; birds sat silent in their coverts; the morning light was wan and ghastly, with neither color nor fire.

Flu

Been touched by the flu these last few days. 
My voice is officially satanic. 
I can't stop saying the phrase:
"That's much too vulgar a display of power."


Just sayin.

Beings

Dear professor Velmont:
My name is E. H. I am 45 years old, and I had a very strange experience. It happened on June 15, 2003, it was Sunday. After watching a movie  on TV, I went to sleep and after turning off the TV and the light, I felt the  presence of something or somebody in my room.  I had my eyes shut and when I opened them I saw three small beings  like humanoids. Their physical appearance had a resemblance to undernourished children in Africa, small and thin, with swollen bellies, they had a grayish  color, long and thin extremities, they had a bigger head and they didn't wear  clothes. However, I remember trying to pray in that moment, but they somehow  blocked my mind and I couldn’t pray anymore. I was paralyzed but conscious. I looked at them again and they blocked my sight as well.
