Find the Bigfoot in yourself. Vote for you. Vote for Loren. Vote for fun. But don’t be squatched by not understanding the voting system!
Sharon Lee is asking for Facebook folks to “List the top ten male and female Bigfoot Researchers or Notables that you would like to see on a calendar.” I guess for people at work who can’t be out in the field, this is a good exercise in which to engage. Or late at night, before going to sleep? Is it cryptozoology? Or even popular hominology? People love lists. And entertainment.
You actually increase the power of your vote if you do not vote for all possibilities. Weighted voting and plural voting works best if you only vote for those you want, say one to five people, not all ten.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
