    It's a joke of course but the clip does give you a sense of how massive this thing is (not talking abut Trump )

    Trumps a pretty big guy on his own but from distance looks like a toothpick compared to this thing

    It's amusing to me how skeptics can call themselves skeptics, while simultaneously having such confident faith in the Morris and Heironimus testimony.

    They have nothing more than their words to back up their claims, and their one and only attempt to prove the authenticity of that word was a laughable fail, yet "skeptics" are convinced that they hoaxed it.

    The most damning hoax evidence IMO is roger's drawing of BF that he published a year before the film was taken... it's basically concept art for the costume he made. Although I'm still not convinced anybody could make a costume that good in 1966.

    there was a russian version of a bigfoot that was captured by a russian village broken, fucked, and bred with. Zana iirc


    besides that recently I got into "medieval monsters", things such as blemmyes, sciapods, cynocephali, monoculi, & wodewose. All written about in history some by explorers, some even depicted on ancient & medieval maps.

    hey why are some people born with tails?

    There was a guy who claimed to be the man in the suit and another man who claimed to have made the costume. Both apparently passed lie detector tests and the former was the subject of a popular 2000's tv documentary on bigfoot which killed the credibility of the film for a while.


    Edit: only the guy in the suit passed a test. Patterson passed one too

    Exactly. Like I'm trying real hard to work a real job and not become a professional con man, but sometimes people make it so tempting...

    Planet of the apes got close up shots from all angles with good lighting and camera equipment.

    I'm sure if you saw the Patterson gimlin costume undert thosekinds of circumstances you could see how fake it is

    Iirc, they were going too make a Bigfoot movie, and just happened too see a real Bigfoot while test filming

    Hell of a coincidence and it works against them as. If it were anyone else on that day there would be less detracttttors.

    that being said, the costume technology of the day just wasn’t there. And the smoothness of the movement seems to make. It really hard to believe it’s. A man in a suit.

    So many experts say that it can’t be a suit.

    it’s what. Makes this. One. So intriguing

    Lemme ask you: what constitutes a expert video watcher? Is it a vcr? Something else?

    You almost wonder who these people are, what their education level is, their upbringing, etc

    telling you man, I knew it'd get a reaction just didn't know there would be so many who seem so sure of their perspective

    course I'm sure they think the same of us Lol pretty amusing

    Yeah if I remember correctly he heard a splash in a lake and he immediately assumed he must had been Bigfoot throwing rocks at him. Most posters agreed with him too.

    I watched a documentary about this, it occurred near to Georgia and they managed to track down a distant relative of her IIRC. Turns out, he had African heritage and the suspicion is that Zana was actually an African woman who the locals dehumanised as being subhuman, abused, enslaved and she had mixed-race children with them. Apparently one her sons was an absolute beast of a bloke, massive jaw and he could lift up a man sat in a chair, with his teeth.

    The theory now is that it was more of a racist incident than an unknown hominid situation, but it was still interesting as fuck.


    On topic, as I said earlier I totally understand the skepticism around this video but I find it quite compelling. The backstory is dodgy as fuck when taken into account but if its a hoax, they did a fucking excellent job given the era.

    The thing that blows my mind is when they digitally enhanced the footage to beyond what was originally disseminated it still looked realistic.

    People saw a bear walking on its hind legs, that’s the only thing it could be
