ATTENTION, PEOPLE WITH TOO MUCH MONEY

Now Meldrum is seeking to raise $300,000-plus in private donations to build the remote-controlled dirigible, equip it with a thermal-imaging camera and send it aloft in hopes of catching an aerial glimpse of Bigfoot, also known as sasquatch.

Send it over Michael Moore's backyard pool for a glimpse of aerial Shamu.

Not likin' to be a killjoy er nuthin' of that sort ... but ... this "response" of the "scientific community" seems a bit odd ...

If the "regular" scientists think the search for Bigfoot makes its proponents a Laughingstock, I'd think they'd welcome the use of any/all "Scientific Technology and Tools" (IR, aerial searches, state-of-the-art photography and video, to mention a few) to DISprove the existence of critters of this type ... but they're against usin' "science" to prove (or disprove) sumthin' "scientific" ... or "mythical" ... whutever ...

Gotta be the jealousy of "scientists" in their constant hunt for "truth" ... or "grant money" ...


I am holding my Sasquatch right now. They don't need a dirigible to get a good photo.

I think he was in the early voting line ahead of me in Aurora, Illinois. He had a valid ID (well, valid enough for voting in Illinois) that showed his name as Chad.

He asked how to use the large typeface version of the electronic ballot. I saw him drive off in a Chevy Volt.

Even if I thought there was reason to search for bigfoot (which I don't) I would have serious doubts about using a dirigible in the mountains. They are very susceptible to wind, and the mountains tend to have a lot of it.

O the U, it makes you a scientific laughingstock because there is no evidence Bigfoot exists. It's not worth the time investment to chase after ghosts, no matter how good the equipment is. Not to mention the fact that this professor is probably absolutely certain Bigfoot does exist and will latch on to whatever "shred" of evidence he finds as if it were ironclad proof.

Why am I laughing so hard at HogAte..Sis comment ? (My office mates will know I'm not working) Have we not progressed beyond 7th grade ?

Just send the money to me and I will take care of it!

I will even send them a self addressed stamped envelope!


*LeDud*

I asked Sasquatch.

No, we have not progressed beyond seventh grade.

Which, in many measurable ways, is just tragic.


Das Blimpit?

(OK, Geezer Bus tickets to those who spot that reference).

Bueller?

Stickle?

Anybody?

I wear size 13 shoes. Does that count?
And no comments or questions from the ladies, please.
No, there is no demonstrable correlation at all. There. I answered it.
