Monster Quest

10 posts in this topic

Usually these shows grasps at various things to dramatize the “monsters” they are hunting (footprints, hair, eyewitnesses), but last night took the cake. They were in the Amazon looking for a living dinosaur that had been reportedly seen on several occasion by local tribe members.

So here they were in the middle of Amazon with a $99 portable Eagle Fish Finder and a $99 Fish TV unit. They were drifting in a hollowed out log hanging the transducer over the side and waiting for something to “appear on the sonar” and then dropping the camera into the chocolate milk of a river.

They were convinced that a couple of blobs on the depth finder had a large round shape with a long skinny neck. So they would then drop the camera down….”can’t quite make it out, but I am seeing something down there”

laughlaughlaugh

I can tell you this, the MN river must be chock full of dinosaurs because I see that same exact shape about every 1/8th of a mile on my finder. wink

In fact one of them must have been hungry the other night as he took a swipe at my prop and took out one of the blades.

yes this season's shows have been on the lame side, wasn't last nights something about wild dogs? I tuned in to see what it was about and that seemed like the theme. The dinosaur one was lame too, that one has aired a few times.

There was another show that was on Sci-Fi, Destination Truth, same theme but at least the guy on the show brings a little sense of humor at himself and the monsters he is looking for.

I watched it a few times, but theyjust show nothing. And what you are saying is pretty much par for the course for them.

I love it when they run through the bush jiggling the camera all around after what they think is something, at least it makes it a little more exciting. cry

But they did have a good show about the sharks in the river systems and big muskies on Mille Lacs. But I do also agree that they kinda exaggerate things quite a bit.

They did a sea monster episode down in Florida and they have video of this thing splashing around in the water. They scientist positively identify it as a thought to be extinct species of seal. It was thought to be extinct over 100 years ago, but low and behold here it was swimming around in this one back canal bay in florida. This was the best and most educational episode I have seen, and yes I have the show on record all on my DVR.

So when people say I haven't seen one or theres no proof of one so it must not be real. I just laugh, and think the human race is so ignorant and naive to think that we are an all knowing race species.

I saw that seal episode and I do agree about that being a very good episode. Didn't they say it could have been a manatee hit by a propeller to cause that 3 pronged tail though? I do recall them saying that is was more than likely the extict seal though.

Ya they had one guy saying the manatee theory. Ya did how ever think that it was possible to be a hybrid of the extinct seal and a modern day seal. The extinct seal lived in cooler water while the other seal was home in either.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?  
    • sheez reb................i hadda clean all your slobber off the inside my screen when i opened this thread!!!!!!!!!!
