It seems that way, his last response was on the 8th.

It speaks to the growing gap between research and the general public. I must say, I am no fan of it. Ivory tower syndrome?

Can this venture be described as "research"? There is not even the pretense of scientific objectivity. With the "response crew" stacked with Bigfooters the Falcon Project is little more than Finding Bigfoot with the addition of a camera attached to an R.C. blimp. It's entertainment designed specifically for television. Since Bigfoot is hot, Hot, HOT they will surely get more than $300K for the television rights alone which actually makes the Falcon Project a good investment and they don't even need to find Bigfoot any more than Finding Bigfoot does. Genius...

Personally, I can't wait for the book:

Hi NW

That is seriously funny. No wonder you keep upsetting these Bigfooter types.

I hope Dr Meldrum see's the lighter side of it. Funny, I just watched "Part One" :D the other day again. I just cannot help by smile when I see Henner. I do not think I will ever get over his claims of Bigfoot Orgies and their dietary nuances as well as a fetish for tickling and wrestling. Peacock was a favourite food wasn't it :w00t: (Not in "Part One" but Henner's face just makes me think of Bigfoot orgies now)

Good God, that man has some wild claims!

Cheers.

Good to see you back on the Crypto-boards, psyche - I was beginning to think we had lost you to the Little Green Men crowd...

With Bigfoot - if you don't have a sense of humour about it then, seriously, what have you got?

Anyone up for some Yowie hunting in S.E.Q. in December? I'm putting together an international expedition featuring researchers from British Columbia - a kind of Sasquatch-Yowie cross-convention in the field. Seriously. PM me if genuinely interested.

Any specific qualifications that you are looking for? Just asking out of curiosity as I couldn't possibly afford a trip to Oz any time soon.

Make sure you spill the details here after your trip though, I'd be mighty interested in hearing about it. :tu:

Yeah, Bigfoot has tremendous appeal because it is both fantastic yet strangely possible - a little something for everyone. The best writers of Bigfoot lore often bring out the best in the mystery by neglecting the important aspects which give greater context and clarity to the phenomenon. Like the "nuttiness" (for want of a better word) from people who otherwise appear very credible and like in that photograph I posted of the skookum site. That single photograph provides the clearest picture of the context of that find far more so than all the diagrams of Bigfoot reclining in the mud and fancy words why it just couldn't be anything else but Bigfoot. Why wasn't that photo (or any photo of the actual site) included in any pro-Bigfoot analysis/discussion on the Skookum cast?

In this respect, Bigfoot is very much an illusion. Look here! Don't look there! Look here... Bigfoot is over here...

Here's where it gets even more interesting: Are such vital omissions made consciously or otherwise? Does Bigfoot constitute a cognitive blindspot?

Ya know, i'm thinking to me "Big Foot" doesn't sound too far fetched from a lot of other stuff that people believe in. However, where in the hell does a ton of 10 foot ape lookin things hide?! They obviously don't like being seen.... I wouldn't want to be seen by humans either if they live in the woods they probably have watched men hunt for animals and are basically scared. If they are not scared how do the people on the show not know if they are hostile or not and wont come out of the woods and rip their heads off, how do we know they're not meat eaters??? Just wondering....... :huh:

And yet all the Footers in the world cannot make this simple admission :D Beautifully put BTW.

PM sent. Hopefully we will both come back alive! :D

I will send a email and see......



I typed that from work.....

When I got home, and after some Salmon fishing, I decided I am done emailing him. If he was interested he would discuss it. He knows the link, and has a membership.

I do not want anyone thinking I am klssing their ass to have the " privilege " of them in a discussion.....

Not saying Jeff would think this, but I do.......


Don't worry though, I am sure we will all see something soon from the project, something with a " best footage ever " in the headline, with a " documentary movie coming out soon " to follow.


I can now point out, the other guy ( his name is at the start, the guy running the project ) only talked to me in emails when he thought I was thinking about donating money. And, he answered emails right away, several of them........Butttttt.......Once he realized I was not doing that, ( donating money ) and just wanted him to also join the discussion, or answer a few questions via email,  he never replied to my emails at all.

At least Jeff did, although I can see exactly where that project is, with that kind of behavior. I would hope Jeff stops that crap.


" no money, no talk "


:yes:




Edit to add / fix :

Here is his name and information ( from the story Saru posted ).....If you doubt what I was saying, try it......Email about possibly donating, you will get a fastg reply, and very polite.....But, once no money is in the discussion any longer, the discussion ends.......Pretty sad.

I never had much success at learning anything new until I found others to go with. Psyche101 would be a good candidate to go with you, he's world famous for discovering the ulta-elusive Hobo-Sapien Robustus.  :lol:  (j/k P101). You'll have a blast with others to learn from, and them from you. You may not find evidence of a primate, but I garauntee you'll learn, and hopefully discover, something new about the world we live in.
