RUMOURS Scotland's fabled Loch Ness monster is dead were dismissed by Nessie fans today.

Suspicions that the monster, said to have lurked in the deep waters of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands, was extinct were raised as credible sightings last year waned to just one.

Gary Campbell, president of the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club, told the UK's Daily Telegraph newspaper that the single sighting, made just off the Clansman Hotel by Loch Ness, Scotland on June 6 2009, was judged by him to have been a credible report.

"That's why were so relieved to have heard about this sighting.

"In June, when it was reported, nobody had seen anything for a year. If it hadn't been for that one, we would have been really, really worried.

"Ten years ago we had a lot of good sightings, but in the last two or three years, they have tailed off."

Rumor has it that the Loch Ness monster was created by Algore to prove the existance of Gorbal warming.

That's fantastic! LOL How did you ever find that? :)

Napoleon: "Last week, Japanese scientists explaced-- placed explosive detonators at the bottom of Lake Loch Ness to blow Nessie out of the water. Sir Curt Godfrey of the Nessie Alliance summoned the help of Scotland's local wizards to cast a protective spell over the lake and it's local residents and all those who seek for the peaceful existence of our underwater ally."

Funny, years and ages ago, I went to a lecture by Dr. Harold “Doc” Edgerton, inventor of the strobe light. They got him to go to Loch Ness with his contraption. Both he and I were complete skeptics at the outset. But he got some grainy photos of something ...that looks as if it might be one of them [not sure of your image source]. I left a believer that night that it might be possible b/c I don’t think Doc faked anything.

Bing.

Interesting stories. I keep hoping one of these things turns out to be true but so far I'm still disappointed.

Except for the whole UFO thing, of course, and the chupacabra. Oh, and sasquatch and...

Yes! That's him.

Born and raised in Canada, but has become a famous world traveler.

Most people know him as Banff the Crasher Squirrel, but his FRiends just call him Banff.

If anybody knows where Nessie is, it's Banff.

It would be fun if it were proved. I found one of Doctor Flash's images of a flipper.
