Yeti Another Bigfoot Video

An intriguing video from Canada shows a remarkably clear view of what appears to be a Bigfoot walking in a wooded area near a large body of water. The fantastic footage was shared online by the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization, which indicated that boaters in the northern part of Ontario had recently filmed the strange scene. Unfortunately, the specific time and location of the sighting as well as the identity of the witnesses are all unknown at this time. Be that as it may, the footage constitutes one of the more jaw-dropping alleged Bigfoot videos to appear online simply by virtue its unambiguous nature.

In the footage (seen below), the boaters are filming a nearby forested shoreline when a large bipedal creature covered in fur emerges from the woods and walks across an open area until disappearing back into the trees. Notably, the suspected Sasquatch boasts a coloring that allows it to largely blend into its surroundings and it swings its arms in a fashion reminiscent of the ‘star’ of the famed Patterson-Gimlin film. Unlike many purported Bigfoot videos, the footage is particularly interesting as the oddity in the footage is undeniably some kind of bipedal figure and it can be clearly seen for approximately six seconds, which is a rather long time for one to get such a glimpse of the elusive cryptid.

Given what can be seen in the video, there are only a handful of possible suspects for what the creature could have been, beginning with Sasquatch, of course. More skeptical viewers might argue that the animal is actually a bear walking on two legs, though that explanation is something of a stretch in light of how smoothly the beast moves. The other explanation that cannot be discounted is that the video is a well-crafted hoax, either produced on-site using a person in a suit or, failing that, after the fact by way of a digital manipulation.

Hard to say on this one. The thing shuffles across a clear area just as the boat arrives. Little fishy.

Very fast Zombies and extremely slow Zombies 

Why is it that in some horror films the Zombies can run like olympic sprinters, while in other movies the Zombies are slower than a turtle on a beach?  I guess it depends on the plague that infected the humans and turned them into Zombies. 

In the 2002 film 28 Days Later the Zombies can really burn rubber.  It is almost impossible to outrun one of these Zombies.  In the 2004 Dawn Of The Dead the gruesome Zombies can keep up with trucks.  You would need a high-powered pick-up or car on a straightaway to get away from these things.  The plague in the latter movie must stimulate the adrenalin in the creatures legs.

On the other side of the spectrum there are movies that have Zombies that are slower than 96-year-old senior citizens.  In the 1968 Night of the Living Dead the Zombies are horrendously slow.  All a person has to do is use some semi-quick lateral motion and you can get around these ghouls.  Shaun of the Dead also has sluggish mutants.  Getting past these Zombies takes very little athletic coordination. 

The problem for humans in the slow Zombie movies is that they always get surrounded or trapped in a house.  The key here would be to stay in a big open area, like in the middle of a golf course or wheat field.  This way you could see them coming and high-tail it in the opposite direction.  And having a bicycle or roller blades at the ready would be a very good idea.

There appears to be a new kind of Zombie that would be very difficult to keep a safe distance from.  Especially in extremely cold climates that have many large lakes and rivers that freeze over.  Ice skating Zombies that wear Winnipeg Jets uniforms.

High Flying Horror

“Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” is the third episode of the fifth season American television anthology series The Twilight Zone, based on the short story of the same name by Richard Matheson, first published in Alone by Night (1961). It originally aired on October 11, 1963 and is one of the most well-known and frequently referenced episodes of the series. The story follows a passenger on an airline flight to notice a hideous creature wandering around the wing of the plane while it is in flight.

In 2019, Keith Phipps of Vulture stated that the episode “doubles as such an effective shorthand for a fear of flying”, making it endure in popular culture.

While traveling by airplane, Robert Wilson (William Shatner) sees a gremlin (Nick Cravat) on the wing. He tries to alert his wife Julia (Christine White) and the stewardess (Asa Maynor), but every time someone else looks out of the window, the gremlin hides itself near the engine, so Robert’s claim seems crazy. Robert admits the oddness of the gremlin avoiding everyone else’s sight but not his. His credibility is further undermined by this being his first flight since suffering a nervous breakdown six months earlier, which also occurred on an aircraft. Robert realizes that his wife is starting to think he needs to go back to the sanitarium, but his more immediate concern is the gremlin tinkering with the wiring under one of the engine cowlings, which could cause the aircraft to crash.

In response to his repeated attempts to raise an alarm about the gremlin, the flight engineer (Edward Kemmer) comes out to evaluate the situation and the stewardess gives Robert a sedative to stop him from alarming other passengers. Robert pretends to down it with water, but does not swallow and secretly spits it out. He then steals a sleeping police officer’s revolver, straps himself in to avoid being blown out of the aircraft, and opens the emergency exit door to shoot the gremlin.

Once the airplane has landed, everyone believes that Robert has gone insane. In a straitjacket as he is whisked away on a gurney, Robert tells his wife that he is alone in his knowledge of what really happened during the flight. However, the final scene reveals conspicuous damage to the exterior of one of the aircraft’s engines, confirming that Robert was right all along.

Could this be a more recent Gremlin encounter over Los Angeles?

‘Godzilla’ lizard found climbing on Florida home’s window

Sept. 22 (UPI) — A Central Florida family captured video when they had an unusual visitor — a large monitor lizard climbing on a window.

Jocelyn Penson, who posted the video to Facebook, said the footage was filmed at the home of her son, Frank Crowder, in Apopka, Fla.

The video shows the lizard climbing on the window in an apparent attempt to find its way into the house. The reptile ends up flopping off the window and down to the ground.

“Looks like Godzilla to me!” Penson wrote.

Penson’s family initially said the animal appeared to be a tegu lizard, but Ron Magill, a wildlife expert with Zoo Miami, said the reptile is a water monitor lizard from Sub-Saharan Africa.

“It’s a lizard that could be anywhere between 3 and 5 feet, generally speaking,” he told WSVN-TV.

Magill said the lizard was likely a former pet that either escaped or was abandoned into the wild by its owner.

Mega Shark

The extinct superpredator megalodon was big enough to eat orcas, scientists say

(CNN)Faster than any shark alive today and big enough to eat an orca in just five bites: A new study suggests the extinct shark known as a megalodon was an even more impressive superpredator than scientists realized before.

The Otodus megalodon, the inspiration behind the 2018 film “The Meg,” lived more than 23 million years ago. Fossils of the extinct giant are hard to come by: While there are plenty of fossilized shark teeth, their bodies mainly consist of cartilage rather than bones, and are rarely preserved.

A research team led by Jack Cooper, a paleobiologist at Swansea University, set out to use 3D modeling from a rare and exceptionally well-preserved megalodon spinal column to extrapolate information about the shark’s movement and behavior. Their research was published in Science Advances Wednesday.

“We estimate that an adult O. megalodon could cruise at faster absolute speeds than any shark species today and fully consume prey the size of modern apex predators,” wrote the researchers.

Most of what we know about megalodons come from scientific inferences: Scientists have estimated the extinct sharks could be as long as 65 feet through a comparison with great white sharks, thought of as their “best available ecological analog,” since they both occupy the top rung in the food chain, according to the article.

The researchers used a megalodon vertebral column from Belgium, a tooth from the United States, and the chondrocranium — the cartilaginous equivalent of a skull — from a great white shark to build their 3D skeleton. Then they used a full-body scan of a great white shark to estimate how flesh would sit on the megalodon’s skeleton.

With a complete 3D rendering, they came up with estimates for the volume and body mass of the shark’s whole body. By comparing the figures to the size of modern sharks, they estimated the shark’s swimming speed, stomach value, calorie needs, and prey encounter rates.

The megalodon they modeled would have been almost 16 meters, or 52 feet, long. It weighed around 61,560 kilograms, or 135,717 pounds, according to their estimates.

They estimated the megalodon would have been able to devour prey the size of orca whales — which can be up to 26 feet long and weigh over 8,000 pounds — in just five bites.

Prey the size of a modern humpback whale would have been too big for a megalodon to eat in full, according to the researchers. Eating large prey may have given the megalodon a competitive edge over other predators. Eating large amounts at a time would have also allowed them to travel great distances without eating again, much like modern great white sharks.

An adult megalodon would have needed to eat a whopping 98,175 calories per day, 20 times higher than an adult great white shark. They could have met their energetic needs by eating around 31.9 kilograms of shark muscle, according to the researchers’ estimates.
The megalodon was also faster than any shark alive, with a theoretical average cruising speed of around 3.1 mph. This speed would have allowed it to encounter more prey, helping it meet its massive caloric demands.
Overall, the data extrapolated from the 3D model paints the portrait of a “transoceanic superpredator,” say the researchers.
Luckily, today’s orcas don’t have to worry about running into the massive shark. The megalodon went extinct around 3.6 million years ago, according to the United Kingdom’s Natural History Museum, for reasons scientists are still trying to understand.
