We’re here for another #TetZoocryptomegathread. Once more, we’re looking at images of a supposed dead cryptid, not a live animal. I refer to the MINNESOTA ICEMAN, the claimed carcass of a recently deceased hominid implied to be a ‘prehistoric man’ or #bigfoot-like creature…
As per usual, this is a VERY LONG AND DETAILED look at the story which involved me looking at, and checking, numerous sources, all of which I’ll discuss as we approach the end… #cryptozoology #bigfoot #monsters
And because I discuss both sides of the story, its various twists and turns, please remember that it might sometimes seem as if I’m presenting things from just one of those sides. In reality: stick around, the take from the ‘other side’ will get covered too…

Time for another #TetZoocryptomegathread, in which we examine the backstory to a photo or film said to depict a cryptid, or monster. This time, we’re not looking at a photo claimed to be of a live animal BUT at photos which depict a very dead one: a rotted carcass, in fact…
I am of course talking about the ZUIYO-MARU CARCASS: the large, decomposed body of a sea creature, ‘captured’ by accident in the nets of the Japanese fishing vessel the Zuiyo-maru on April 25th 1977 while they were about 48km off the east coast of Christchurch, New Zealand…
The name ‘Zuiyo-maru’ has been written in several ways in the literature (as ‘Zuiyomaru’ or ‘Zuiyo Maru’, for example). I’m here going to follow the style used in the 1978 report on the carcass (Zuiyo-maru). And the Zuiyo-maru carcass will be called the ZMC from hereon!

Time for another #TetZoocryptomegathread, again a #LochNessMonster one, again on one of my favourite #Nessie photos: the Peter O’Connor photo of May 27th, 1960. Follow this thread as we take a VERY DETAILED look at the story behind this case…
The O’Connor photo – a single black and white image – is one of the ‘best’ #Nessie images, by which I mean that it shows an object which looks something like an animal, and shows it at close range and at reasonable detail. #cryptozoology #monsters
The photo was taken in darkness, from close to shore, and (supposedly...) as the camera was held less than 1 metre above the water surface. The flash illuminates the scene, and is bouncing off wavelets as well as what looks like the body of a large animal…

Yes, let us once more embark on a #cryptozoology PHOTO MEGA-THREAD, aka #TetZoocryptomegathread. This time we look at an alleged mystery primate photo... well, two photos, actually. Namely, the MYAKKA SKUNK APE PHOTOS of 2000. Let’s take a deep dive…
The photos date to December 2000 and the story starts when they were received by the Sarasota Sheriff’s Department, just before New Year. An anonymous letter explained the backstory to the two photos…
… which were said to have been taken in Sarasota County, Florida, in a region close to the Myakka River and Myakka State Park, and close to highway I-75 (not I-175 as said in some accounts).

It’s time for another of my monster-themed mega-threads, wherein we examine the backstory to photos (or other bits of evidence) said to be evidence for a given #monster. This time, we’re going to look at the so-called #LochNessMonster FLIPPER PHOTOS of 1972. Here we go… ImageImageImage
During the late 1960s/early 70s it was believed by a large group of people – affiliated as the Loch Ness Phenomenon Investigation Bureau or LNIB (it went by other names over the years) – that camera-led vigils at #LochNess would lead to definitive proof of Nessie’s existence...
During the early 70s, the LNIB joined forces with another group: the US-based Academy of Applied Science (AAS), led by inventor and lawyer Robert Rines (whose name is very often wrongly written ‘Rhines’). Rines died in 2009. In the photo here, Rines is on the far left… Image

Hard copies of my 2017 #cryptozoology book #HuntingMonsters are proving harder to get hold of (amazon is now only offering it at stupid prices, look). But there are reasonably priced copies still available at abe:… #books #monsters Image
My plan is to produced a second edition, with updates. Not sure how that's going to work out yet, stay tuned.

Hello! It’s time to look at the very complex backstory to ANOTHER famous #monster photo (ask me if you need links to my monster threads). This time we’re looking at the Sandra Mansi #LakeChamplain photo of July 1977, the world’s ‘best’ lake monster photo. MEGA-THREAD follows….
The Mansi photo – as it’s known – is a single colour photo taken at around noon on July 5th, 1977 at Lake Champlain, a giant lake 172km long, 23km wide at its widest, mostly located within the US states of Vermont and New York but with a section in Québec too… #cryptozoology
The Mansi photo has been described as the very best photo of a lake monster ever, has been taken seriously – as a real photo of a giant, unknown animal species – by many scientists, but has also been decried a hoax, and investigated as a misidentification.

Quetzalcoatlus stood as tall as a giraffe, , had a 37-40 foot wingspan and weighed about 500-550 pounds. It was the largest known flying animal. Being that tall, it could look giant theropods in the eye, and combined with enormous wings, it could make itself look much larger than
it actually was. This is a defensive tactic that we see in nature all the time, from the blowfish that sucks in a lot of water to make itself balloon up, to a frilled lizard showing out its frills. Making yourself look much larger than normal can save you from predation.

HKD running for the exits before beijing’s planned massacre. Investors have lost trust...and history tells us what happens next #bankingandcurrencycrisis #HK #china #monsters
On a more technical note, spot and forwards have inverted without rates inverting. The currency is trading on an exodus regardless of where the monetary authorities set rates. #MassExodus #hk
HKD “EMERGING MARKET BLOW UP” Typically, a higher HKD/USD rate spread would result in high points, but lower spot. However due to the emerging tail risks, spot and points are moving in the same direction – a correlation typical for emerging market blow up scenarios. #HKexit

"Most of the things that differ from the past will shortly die. The more they differ, the sooner they will die."

@SimonDeDeo of SFI & @CarnegieMellon on the linear correlation of #novelty & #transience - aka, "Why you mostly listen to the same songs over and over" - at #CSSS19:
"It's true that new things die. It's also true that is you want to be very very big, be new."

@SimonDeDeo of SFI & @CarnegieMellon on successful #novelty & hopeful #monsters in #evolution, #innovation, & #investment - aka, "Either be really boring, or be Beethoven" - at #CSSS19:
"#Revolutions are not just about ideas, they're about #information management. You can't just run a #revolution in a seminar room."

"The stranger your speech is, the more likely people are to just nod & move on."

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

The 'Dr Darren Naish is an idiot because he's only just decided that monsters (like the #LochNessMonster) aren't real' story continues to have legs in the global press today. Here's a thread...
(1) I've most certainly not spent the last 20 years searching for monsters. I think I told a journalist that I've been publishing on monsters for about 20 years (my 1st articles on the subject date to 1996, so 23 years); they must have taken the figure from this...
(2) I've never been a dedicated monster hunter. Rather, the cryptozoological stuff is something I do on the side and certainly not the way I make a living, which is what is implied in some of these articles. I'm mostly known for my palaeozoological writings...
