1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Why would you waste time watching a show about some idiots chasing something that does not exist?

    I dont know if it does or doesnt exist. Cant explain why I like the show but I'm fascinated by the hunt.

    I think so. I dont want to sound like a conspiracy theorist but there have been thousands and thousands of signtings of this animal. I'd love to see it proven, but I'm not convinced either. I just note that it wasnt until the 60's that mountain gorillas were proven to exist.

    Apples =! oranges.

    Don't you think someone would've snapped a cellphone picture by now? Hit one with a car? Shot one while hunting?

    If its real, its believed to be smarter, solitary and more elusive than a gorilla. Its also believed to be aware of humans and stays away. Look how long it took to see a live giant squid.

    There are vids and photos out there. None are conclusive. Problem is the lol factor of it. If a dragnet type scientific effort was put in it would help but scientists are sensitive about the humiliation.

    Try to snap a cell phone photo of an 10 foot monster when you are suddenly in fear of your life. If real, that thing covers ground, in 2 steps its across a road or within enough tree cover to make everyone question a pic. Its not known to cover open ground, and also nocturnal. All this makes it very hard to get some conclusive proof. When one is seen, its usually by chance and disappears immediately.

    There are reports of hunters shooting at one, but most report being terrified and splitting or just blown away by what they saw.

    Its pretty obvious that Bigfoot was a feral human. Probably like Andre the Giant or The Big Show being born in the woods.

    Haven't seen the show, I hope they find it though. I'd definitely watch it then. :slayer:

    I'm of the opinion the existence of a breeding population of an intelligent, nocturnal great ape hiding in the millions of square km of USA wilderness is not impossible. There's more evidence for bigfoot (footprints and trails, let alone all the sighting reports) than for many dinosaurs accepted by mainstream science.

    Some Russian soldiers found a feral man in a cave during WW2. The thought it was a bear and shot it when it charged out of the cave.

    You don't believe that a feral human could exist?

    Most folks 'obsessed' with it are actual witnesses determined to prove it to the wider world.

    I'm assuming that most of the people watching the show are believers, or on the fence. Clearly they didn't find anything (because it doesn't exist), or it would have made national news - so I'm not sure what the point of watching is when you know every episode is going to end the exact same way.
