Well, it's official. Wow. I'm so excited!

Lonely Planet's guide to Nepal says that Khumjung Monastery has a sign outlining the different types of yeti.  The apelike dre-ma and tel-ma cause calamity, while the chu-ti preys on goats, sheep and yaks.  Worst of all is the mi-te which is a man-eater, 6 feet to 8 feet tall, with "a very bad temperament".  biggrin.gif

I can't believe it. And I'm sure this news is irrelevant to many people. But c'mon, it's pretty cool.

Very interesting - thanks for sharing Austin!

Where did they get the DNA?

Well you see son, when a man loves a woman...or a sasquatch loves a she-sasquatch...or whatever. Actually man, you know what, I have no idea where that was going. basshead.gif

Seriously though, if this turns out being bona fide (e.g. the peer review accepts it and it isn't just another elaborate hoax), I would not be surprised at all - it wouldn't be the first near-relative hominid that came into being 30-15kya that we cannot otherwise explain. But it would be the first that is claimed to be still living. Which would change everything.

Around here our name for them is "homeless". You most often see them around Starbucks and McDonalds. Very scary.

Just pointing out that they've completely dismissed the bigger question here.  There's no proof that such a creature even exists.  But apparently, they've somehow got their hands on one and swabbed it's mouth for a sample?

Yeah, and that part about the whatever-the eff-it-is creating a hybrid species by coming after our women is hilarious.

Since I'm a little educated in the Bigfoot community (I'm obsessed with it), I'll break it down a little bit.

 

Mostly from hair, blood, and tissue samples (109 samples to count)

 

But the big testing comes from the steak or partial body remains come from the "Sierra Kills" by Justin Smeja.

 

Ask me any questions you may have.

 

EDIT:

 

Oh, and there's a huge battle going on between the believers and skeptics (the majority of which are defending their claims with psuedoskepticism)

 

Oh, and no evidence?

 

There's a TON of anecdotal evidence, here's a few examples. 

 

•Over 30,000 eyewitness accounts reported in the BFRO database alone

•Well over 200 recorded, dynamically splayed footprints

•Samples that get tested and come back as "unknown (that's changed now, obviously)

 

And I've been following Ketchum for the last two years waiting for her to release. This isn't a hoax. Plus, there's the Oxford study.

 

EDIT 2: Yes, they have a slightly decomposed body, but it is nevertheless. Research "Sierra Bigfoot Kills & Justin Smeja"

 

Kind of a gruesome murder scene to be honest.

When I googled "Sierra Bigfoot Kills & Justin Smeja", all I saw was the equivalent of this:

And that the "sasquatch myth" appears as a cross-cultural and fairly long-term thing of a variety of peoples. smily_headphones1.gif Generally it's been my experience that when you can get very different people to agree on something, that counts for something.

Again, I'm watching this relatively closely, because it's always cool to see things like this come to a head. I also like that by and large this hasn't turned into a flame-fest. smily_headphones1.gif

I didn't mean to imply that Sasquatch itself is a hoax, but more that I hope the Ketchum findings end up being pretty bona fide, like Morwood's findings of H. Floresiensis; and not something like Piltdown. ph34r.gif

Oh yeah, it is a serious thread. I'm just not a serious person. tongue.gif For example, this is how I want to imagine Ketchum:



EDIT:

Found this on Justin Smeja, it doesn't appear to have graphic images (they do have a picture of Ketchum though, that completely ruins the above imagination):

I'm sure Austin has more/better sources, but that's what I got.

Yeah, but that link is exactly what I'm talking about - just another "artist's depiction". Label me skeptic. Every one of these deals smells worse than a pile of Sasquatch dung. Cue the X-Files theme song...

We can get pictures of the British Crown Prince's ding-dong, but we can't get a picture of a 7 foot tall man-ape that has been seen in every wilderness area of the world...
