Monstrous Theories

Posted by: Nick Redfern on May 23rd, 2012

In a new post at Mysterious Universe titled Seals, Saurians, and Serpents: Odd Theories Behind The World’s Lake Monsters, Micah Hanks begins:

“Most of us are familiar with stories of Nessie, the long-necked lady of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. For centuries, it has been believed that a strange, dinosaur-like animal has existed within the lake’s murky waters, though granted, the waters of the famous lake are so filled with peat that it would make peering through a glass of Guinness far easier; in other words, visibility is very limited beneath the Loch. Thus, numerous attempts to prove the identity of the lake’s mystery monster have come up empty-handed.”

As for those theories, well, you can find all about them at Micah’s post.

    Six errors in one paragraph – not bad for a beginner! There is underwater video from Loch Ness freely viewable on the Raynor website showing the underside of a boat from 40 feet down, so it is clearly not full of peat, or like Guinness.

    There must be some other reason why they have been eating haggis for centuries and not dining on plesiosaur, long-necked seal or giant eel…

    I wanted to see the videos wuffing pointed out, yet they weren’t visible because my Firefox browser needed a plugin that’s not available.

    Somehow I feel I’ve fallen victim to the Cosmic Irony. :-/

    Anyway, I believe Micah’s reference to that famous dark drink was not an error, but poetic license. 😉

    His website work best if you have a green monitor with amber phosphors. Try going directly to the Windows Media file.

    Poetic license? Is that how we should read all the blogs here? Maybe that is the price for letting paranormalists into a “normalist” field of study.

    Santa Claus, though, he’s real, isn’t he?

    wuffing: I used to visit Loch Ness a lot, 15 times so far and counting and once spoke to a diver who had been in the Loch trying to recover a body. I am not sure how deep he was but he said the visibility due to the peat was so bad he could only see his hand when he put it onto his face mask.

  5. flame821 responds:

    Also from someone who has been to Ness; depending on the water conditions the viewing conditions are anything from murky to one-step-above-peat-bog.

    Supposedly the best time to catch a glimpse of Nessie is after a storm, of course that also means the water is churned up and Marcodufour’s friend is quite correct about not being able to see your hand in front of your face.
