Not everyone has the Internet. So, I try to keep the readers of this newspaper column informed on what’s going on with bigfoot on the web.
We have, however, time and again been warned about all the false information that the Internet delivers. And believe me, the web can be a cesspool. Armed with good sense and shod with sturdy boots (so to speak), one may maneuver through and around the misinformation so prevalent on the Internet or not!
Plop! Was that plop noise you or me falling for some brilliantly presented falsehood disguised as new-found truth? It’s happening all the time on the Internet, so research carefully.
Last week on our Bigfoot online magazine, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, we received a comment including a full name. This in itself is something to be applauded as most people do not give their name. The full-name commenter said that he had viewed the ESP Team’s clear photos of the bigfoot, Big Clyde. They were indeed clear and he believed they were of a sasquatch.
It was no time at all after posting this comment from full-name that a comment came in claiming full-name couldn’t be believed. The doubter, of course, didn’t bother giving us his name. (I’m just saying ...) Do please check in from time to time on Ballyhoo and this column to follow the ESP Team’s revealing of their information gathered on
Aug. 8, 2010 and thereabouts. (Ballyhoo’s web address is www.bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com)
I chuckled when one day last week the local news, weather section, showed a photo of a snow-covered road with big footprints clearly running along side it. The weather girl smiled and said “bear or some animal.” Let me tell you, those prints looked like bigfoot prints to me. But, I did think to myself, why would bigfoot walk along the edge of the road? Wouldn’t he walk down the middle? I’d walk down the middle, especially with the deep snow on the road. Well, that’s just me. Who knows the mind of a bigfoot?
Please be careful if you visit the snowy peaks looking for a fun outing or a fun adventure. Remember, most people who get lost often first get stuck in the snow. So in conclusion, don’t believe everything on the Internet and do be safe if you’re going to the mountains.
