Here is an example of what I was talking about. I am a fan of Les Stroud. He is very knowledgeable in regards to outdoor survival and woodsmanship skills. Here he offers "proof that sasquatch exists". After watching this I can only say that what he is talking about is subject to interpretation, it is not really proof. Evidence is 97%, proof is 100%! See what you think.
So I'm at a bar on Guadalcanal. The war is over, but not really because the economy hasn't totally tanked yet and the purported retard peace keeping force is (RAMSI) still there.
For years all we've had is BBC, but somehow Stroud's Aitutaki episode comes on. It's Pacific, so it gets some attention from locals and the remaining militants alike. We watch Stroud chase fish with a stick and laugh.
Then he's winging like a pom about being hungry. So I get up in front of the TV and portray his anxiety. Meanwhile, a couple mates get up, and pretend to uproot the immature coconuts behind me/him, smash them open, and eat the nutritious foam meat.
By now the crowd is roaring. They're all drunk, and they're throwing cans at Stroud (me) because he (I'm) such a moron that knows less than a child about survival- which they all well know, having been in a civil war.
Then at night with his NV camera he goes on about how hard it is to find food, with the lights of town behind him looking like Long Beach before Black Friday. Half the crowd is on the floor having wet their pants in laughter.
Yeah, that's about as realistic as bigfoot. Then there's the Solomon Island Giants morons who insist there are UFO bases upstream of Bonegi. Been there. No UFOs.
I'm all for the unknown. Tennent told me there were no P. jupiter on San Cristobal until I handed him one. And the locals in KiraKira accurately described (without knowing what they were seeing) a silent airship piloted by an elephant man (that would be a US military helo we would find out about after the Bin Laden raid). Bigfoot? They're on Gcanal and everywhere else. But zero evidence. I'd like to believe. It's not the lack of scientific evidence, it's the reliability of the reporters. When the KK locals tell me about elephant men in silent UFOs with red and green lights I can figure that out. When a Viking spearpoint is found on the shores of Lake Ontario, I think the "they traded it with indiginous" is myopic. But when I hear about psychic bigfoot and other giants, I'm not sold.
If anyone outside of the Insectnet community were to read our posts, I can't help but wonder what their opinion of us would be! How the hell did we get from Bigfoot to Brussel sprouts!?! Oh yeah.... someone was discussing the existence of God in regards to sprouts being somehow something of an ungodly creation. You guys ain't right, as we here in Tennessee say!
Brussel Sprouts, yeeeyuuuck. There ain't enough cheese in the world to make them edible.
And Bluempth, if you tell me Big Foot likes Brussel Sprouts, that is proof that Big Foot does not exist.
I know why God made Brussel Sprouts. To keep me in place. When I was a boy my Mother would threaten to make Brussel Sprouts for dinner when I would mis-behave. And when she did, I was not allowed to leave the table until I ate them. I would put them in my pant pockets and take them out side and dump them in a neighbor's yard. They were like nuclear waste. Nothing would grow in that spot for years.
I ate them once and only once. After eating them I could $hit through a screen door at fifty yards and never touch metal.
Golden Corral is the world's largest buyer of brussel sprouts and they have cheese on the bar at all times. Am I the only one here that has any love for the poor little misunderstood sprout. They are just baby cabbages.
There is a God, I know that for a fact. Because there is a Devil!
Only the Devil could create SPAM, and it is an acronym.
### Processed As Meat
I have a Sister in Law, Diana Lee Felganhauger, who cooks/fries that stuff with eggs and biscuts every morning. You don't swallow that stuff, it just slides right down and slides right out, Diana Lee is a widow now. She had poor Gidney cremated when he died and she keeps his ashes in an old Spam can. Gidney Felganhauger had the IQ of a Slug. If you put Diana Lee, Gidney, Clara Sue, Swilla Faye, Clarance Roy and Ulis Ray together in the same room, you might, just might, get a full set of teeth.
I could right a book about my wife's sisters. Swilla Fay was married 10 times. To 8 different men. She married one guy three times. And some of her ex's are/were married to other Sisters. Nothing like keeping it in the family.
Do you know the two reason why there are so many trash cans at a Red Neck wedding??
One is target for the good old boys to throw empty beer cans at and the other is to keep the flies off the bride.
If anyone were to read this thread, they might enjoy its comical side, if not, they would believe insect collectors were mad hatters. If you go down to the woods today, your sure of a big surprise. O dear!, hairy men, UFOs, Dr Spock = mind speak.
