This has jarred my memory about something I saw on one of the mystery programs.  I really wish I could remember what it was but it was donkeys years ago and I was only a kid.

Basically the presenter/investigator was led into a shed where there was a body encased in ice many inches thick.  It looked human/ape but was hard too make out any features due to the thickness of the ice.

Gave me nightmares for weeks.

Poor Bigfoot! Why would anyone want to kill one? Unless he was trying to get fresh with the guy's wife (Bigfeet? like human females apparently).

So they are saying that it is still frozen after all these years?

Well, one of the popular theories is that the Iceman isn't a "Bigfoot" at all. The profile's all wrong, too short and light. A number of people have suggested it's not native to the Americas at all, but something that was shot in Vietnam and brought to the US one way or another. I find this one pretty interesting, because the Iceman would fit a lot better with some of the "wildman" reports coming out of Southeast Asia, and I vaguely recall reading something where American special forces (MACV-SOG or SEALs, probably) claimed to have seen unidentified primates they called "rock apes" in the area.

I've read of Rock Apes, and they seem like an early primate, rather then a near human like a bigfoot.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

I'd kill one immeditately if I could.

The great naturalist John Audubon killed millions of birds, so that science might have good examples to study of many species. The same would apply here. Shooting a bigfoot is the only real proof that would be accepted by science. And its body would provide millions of details that would otherwise be impossible to determine.

Well, in Coleman's Field Guide To Bigfoot, he identifies certain Southeast Asian reports with names I can't even begin to spell, let alone pronounce, as relics of Homo erectus or relatives. Rock apes don't come up in that particular book, and I'd be inclined to liken them more to H. floresiensis than H. erectus, but either way they'd likely be early hominids. The rock ape also has something of a similarity to the orangutan, so there's that too.

That's probably true, however I have enough confidence in my marksmanship that I'm not so worried about it. Now, having said that, I also know that I might get surprised and caught off guard, in which case I might wind up as Bigfoot"s boy toy. In which case I'll save the last round for me.

I just hope the critter doesn't decide he might like me that way, but at least I'll not really know about.

Hey, one must always expect the unexpected.

I seriously doubt Bigfoots practice safe sex.....or sanitary sex for that manner, so I'm going to opt out on snu-snu with the big guy.
