Proof That the Loch Ness Monster Exists? (Photo from Google Earth)
Sun Via Foxnews ^ | 8-26-09

Posted on 08/26/2009 4:05:51 PM PDT by past_present

This amazing image on Google Earth could be the elusive proof that the Loch Ness Monster exists.

Sun reader Jason Cooke spotted "Nessie" while browsing the Web site's satellite photos.

The shape seen on the surface of the 22-mile Scottish loch is 65ft long and appears to have an oval body, a tail and four legs or flippers.

Some experts believe Nessie may be a Plesiosaur, an extinct marine reptile with a shape like the Google image.

"This is really intriguing. It needs further study," said researcher

Trying to set us up for some unflattering remarks, newbie? Take it to DU, or KOS, or HuffyPuffy where they eat this garbage up.

That’s one BIG crawdad! Or crayfish, crawfish, depending on one’s locale. :-)

How’s that constant anger thing working out for you? The dude just posted a link to a Fox News story.

Do you honestly believe this is the type of garbage FR is meant for? God help us if we become a laughing stock because of all our space alien-Loch Ness type postings based on clearly irrelevant or doctored material.

Oh, and I’m not angry, just disgusted with ridiculous material.

I think it’s a silly thing, but considering the non-political and news posts that are on here, is it really any worse than Brett Favre news? I just thought you went too far in ripping the guy for just posting a (mainstream) news story. It’s not like it’s from TinfoilTimes.com.

... could be the elusive proof ...

Use of the clause "could be" is a pretty good tip-off that it isn't.

FYI, Brett Favre news, as much as it's overdone (and I'm a Packer fan...) is generally based on fact. This is based on speculation about some mythical monster that's never been proven to exist, and a photo that is far more discernible as a vessel than some "monster". Your comparison doesn't hold up. I don't care where it originates from, a little common sense can go a long way in not burdening our bandwith with silly posts.

It looks like a boat.

I wish Britain’s leading politicians would go there and take a swim, to prove to their people there is no monster......

You certainly have the right to think you are being set up (by a newstory from Fox?) but we have the right to think you are being kind of jerky.

This is utterly absurd and preposterous! Everyone knows that the Loch Ness Monster doesn’t have that many tentacles.

I may not be explaining it correctly, but it’s noise from the overlay made when different ships made their scans of the ocean floor. IOW, it’s stuff that’s a result of the image gathering process, not stuff that’s actually on the ocean floor.

Too wide for your wits and too long lies my lake
And its waters are cold, they are deep and opaque
And the bottom is fractured with fissures
and ragged with rock, rock, rock
Where you’ll never catch me

So if you should spy me t’will be by mistake
But mostly you’ll glimpse just the ghost of my wake
Or the flash of a fin that means not
But serves only to mock, mock, mock
That you’ll never catch me

So don’t pester poor folk with those pictures you take
For they’ll say I’m a log or a bird or a snake
So get yourself gone now
Go tie up your boat at the dock, dock, dock
For you’ll never catch me

Tell yourself I’m a tale or some fool’s flimsy fake
I’m a myth born of mists I’m the monster you make
Out of sounds in the night when you sit ‘round the fires
And talk talk talk
Talk will never catch me
