Hey, I'm proud of my "degree". I've worked hard for it! Thank you very much!


I wonder if this guy is funded by "Tourism for Scotland" or some such?

When my husband and I went to Scotland a few years ago, I was bound and determined to see Nessie.  And I did... hundreds of times.  I would stare at a point in the water and sooner or later I would see something.  OK maybe it was ripples.  But I did see something!    If a person looks for something hard enough, they will find it.

I would venture that this would occur in any lake ANYWHERE.

I spent 20 years on the surface, under the surface and on the shores of a Great Lake.
We never saw lake monsters, UFO hot spots, etc just HUGE carpish fish.
Anyway, I wonder how much of these type of phenomenon escape the true locals completely, other than for tourism purposes.
And it is newer residents, visitors, outsiders and youth that are, mostly though maybe not totally, all over this kind of stuff.

What the heck is a "Loch Ness Monster expert" anyway? Is that like an Easter Bunny expert? Or a Santa Claus expert?

You are not reading it properly, it doesn't say "Loch Ness Monster expert"... He's an Expert statistical ecologist....

Which means that in this case he has compiled statistics relating to eyewitness sightings of the Loch Ness monster - none of which are supported by any kind of evidence at all.  I must say I don't envy his task.

He might have found it fun doing something "different". lol

Today is the 3000th anniversary of an organized religion which is basically a fairytale for adults, and only now is it dying. Perhaps the Loch Ness myth will die in another 3000 years.

On the other hand, if he proves Nessie exists you're gonna be in deep kimchee! :D

How will doing a statistical analysis of Nessie sightings prove that the monster exists?  Thats like doing a statistical analysis of Mother Goose's Fairytales to find out whether Old Mother Hubbard was actually a historical figure.  The one doesn't prove the other.
