1/ One reason many of us advocate for #masks #vaccines is because#COVID patients are filling up hospitals/clinics and patients need other healthcare too.

Never thought this would impact me.

But here I am @OttawaHeartInstitute Image
2/ My husband - who has run 7-10k a few times a week his whole adult life - needed to be here today.

Sending my best to our #familydoctor #cardiologist #cardiacsurgeon #nurses

Sending my absolute worst to those who carelessly spread covid.

3/ No one is immune from the consequences of #antimaskers #antivaxxers

Will he get covid in hospital?
Will he get covid in rehab or in hospital if he has complications post-surgery?

Wear your f**king mask.

Let me reiterate for those in the back:

Wear your Fucking Mask.

We have less than 5 days left on the #Folklore #Bestiary for #DnD 5e and #OldSchoolEssentials!
Creators from ALL AROUND THE WORLD are adapting their favorite creatures from their cultures to their favorite #TTRPG!

I was lucky enough to be included!…
Being a Brazilian writing in English in a community that is predominantly US/Europe centered, was always hard.
Having a #TTRPG #Monster #Book inspired by the #Folklore of other people, being made in collaboration with people all around, was great!
We have a rich and varied #Folklore in Brazil. We have stories that trace all the way back the native people and their rich culture. Legends that came all the way from Africa. Stories and fantasy tales from Europe too. All mixed up in our imagination. To adapt that to #TTRPG? YES

Today I wanted to share with you the first page of my story with Erik Lervold, Battle Royale.

For years, the main criticism of Cthulhu is Hard to Spell was that the cover did not relate to any of the interior stories.

Well, we fixed that this year by creating a story related very heavily to the awesome cover by Aaron Alexovich.
Our story features a drag down wrestling match between Cthulhu and Zeus with the fate of the universe hanging in the balance.

Time once more for a #TetZoocryptomegathread. Again, it’s on #seamonsters, and again on a supposed actual photo of a live one! I refer of course to the enigmatic Professor Sharpe ‘1908’ photo, which I first wrote about back in 2008…
The photo was brought to recent attention by cryptozoological researchers Dwight Smith and Gary Mangiacopra in a 2001 article, published in a special volume of Crypto devoted to aquatic #monsters...
It concerns a photo that’s been republished more than once since its first appearance in a Californian newspaper, and must have been seen by thousands, if not millions, of people… #cryptozoology #monsters

At long last, it’s time for another #TetZoocryptomegathread, wherein I look in detail at a piece of photographic evidence said to show a MONSTER. This time, we’re looking again at a #LochNessMonster photo, specifically the HUGH GRAY PHOTO of 1933.... #LochNess #cryptozoology
This photo - famously hard to interpret - is the very first photo claimed to show the Loch Ness Monster! And I’ll mostly be calling it the Gray Nessie photo. To business…
As per usual, please remember that this isn’t called a megathread for nothin. It’s loooooong. Secondly, I am an ‘honest sceptic’. I am not biased, and I aim to report authentically what authors and reporters have said, on both sides of the proverbial fence... #cryptozoology

Time for a #TetZoocryptomegathread! This time we look at one of the most famous sea monster accounts: the WWI incident in which the crew of the U-boat U-28 witnessed a gigantic, crocodile-shaped monster get blasted out of the water by an explosion. Yes, you read that right…
The U-28 incident is generally considered one of the most amazing and exciting claimed sea monster observations, combining the drama and historical realism of marine warfare with a remarkable creature account that defies belief… #cryptozoology #monsters
As usual with these megathreads, please remember that I discuss both the ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ of these sorts of stories. If you read something that seems wrong, silly or illogical, remember that I’ll very likely be coming back to it later on in the thread. Ok…

After an long hiatus caused by a ridiculous workload, it’s time for another #TetZoocryptomegathread, in which I examine the backstory to a cryptozoological photo or bit of film. This time, we look at the Lake Dakataua ‘Migo’ monster footage of 1994. Warning: LONG thread ahead…
I’ll tell you now that this case is complex. It involves crocodile systematics and behaviour, the ‘surviving archaeocete’ hypothesis, mosasaur life appearance as depicted in #palaeoart, and the world of the pre-internet cryptozoological community…
What is the #Migo?... I hear (some of) you cry. Also known as the Masali or Migaua, it’s an alleged mystery creature of New Britain’s Lake Dakataua, said to be about 4m long, and to be a flippered, long-tailed, long-snouted, aquatic, predatory animal…

It's #TetZoocryptomegathread time, in which I take a VERY long, detailed look at a monster-themed photo, or photos, or bit of film. This time, we look AGAIN at photos alleged to show a monster carcass: the 1937 Naden Harbour #Cadborosaurus sea monster carcass… #cryptozoology
As usual, my aim here is to cover the story in all its twists and turns, and to look at the evidence critically and sceptically but to ALSO look at the case as it was interpreted by those who accepted it as a valid bit of monster evidence… #monsters #seamonsters
Some minor backstory before we get to the photos themselves. European colonists of coastal British Columbia, Canada and Washington, USA claimed – from the 1880s onwards – to witness a large sea monster in the region’s coastal waters…

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...
