It would be amazing if Bigfoot/ Yeti were actually Neanderthals that had survived in isolation alongside us to this present day! :)
It would be very likely, since there are still isolated and undisturbed tribes in jungles today.

Personally I think that it is next to impossible for an animal with such a big biomass to remain undetected for so long... i mean ONE of them is bound to end up as roadkill one day will it? or shot by an over-zealous deer hunter... but that's just me. I passed through my phase of Cryptozoology Jeriah, right around the time of the supposed re-discovery of the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker and i'm still a sceptic on most species.

However having said that, I still cannot find statisfying explanations for some of the weird stuff that people see...

just gonna throw this out there:
it is widely regarded that neanderthal man was just as intelligent as modern man, (im on my phone so will edit this later) so if (big if) sasquatch/bigfoot was related to man through this line, or as a missing link it would not be unwise to assume that the creature's intelligence would be on a level if not equal, then at least close to our own. cro magnons didn't evolve technologically because they (theroised) couldn't, literally couldn't. they were locked into their technology as they were unable to build on what they knew already, not an intelligence factor but a factor of imagination. so cross the intelligence of neanderthal with the inability to be dynamic of the cro mag's and you have what would be a creature smart enough to evade and watch man, but not smart enough to build or create structures/tools beyond stone age tech.

or it's all bullshit - i don't know

Going off topic from the thread, but would love a source for this theory that Cro-Magnon were intelligent enough to use flint and bone tools and creative enough to paint cave walls, but were not imaginative enough to further advance their own tool/culture technology.

The hair was long, and the cocaine-fueled orgies were longer. The smooth voice of Barry Gibb provided a soundtrack for my life. I met a girl by the name of Roxxy one night at the disco.

Well, I could explain why homo sapiens (today's human being) exists, and how it "evolved" after homo erectus, but I won't. It's a pretty extreme theory (I wouldn't say theory since it's what really happened, but for uneducated people it's just a theory among others), even for a zombie forum... :lol:

In fact, I'm pretty damn sure that if I start talking, a bunch of people here are gonna start crying (realizing they are/were not crazy). Those people know what I'm talking about and I'm not explaining it any further, I don't want to look like a crazy person (yeah right...).

Off the top of my head was the a pure ginger-haired girl (white caucasian with blue eyes) with a dyed red asian grandma speaking a completely alien language in a Bangkok Shopping Mall.
I actually walked past them twice to confirm the language was off the charts.
They shut up when I passed them a second time and eyed me warily somewhat.

Not super strange, but while gar fishing the other day, a four-footer came out of nowhere, ignored the big chunk of cut bait on my hook, and proceeded to attack my float, tearing it to little pieces. I swear tht fish floated there and looked right at me afterward. I think it just wanted to fuck with me. :shock:

I've seen more male tramp stamps in Florida in the past 8 months (fuck, it's been 8 months already) than I did living 20 years back home.

The Memebase site of "Picture Is Unrelated" (Link).

This site seems to have a very good supply of Whatthefuckery

Be warned there are some images on the site that are defiantly NSFW & or kids

Like this link for example

Or how about Chucky

There are others but they are too NSFW & ZS (like the Buzz & Woody one).

I spent a week in the hospital once for a pretty bad concussion to my head after falling down some stairs, the patient in the bed next to me would talk about numbers in his sleep randomly, on day three of me being there he completely went insane after the nurse tried to stop him from sleep walking, he knocked her down then flipped his bed and ripped his shirt in the process, he had huge gashes across his back, arms and chest like someone had taken a boxcutter to him.

I to this day have not been more afraid of any individual in my life.

I guess tonight qualifies. I was fishing a local creek, and kept hearing strange voices and noises from the woods nearby. There were no people around, nor any reason to believe people would be in that patch of woods at that time. I would hear indistinct shouting, and a sound like someone hitting a cowbell. The air seemed to get...thicker around sundown. Very creepy. I am still a little on edge.
