Where ‘Awkwardness’ is the name of the game. Or just the story of my life.

Illogical Thought Processes May 29, 2007

I had the pleasure of watching scary movies last night, and I have quite an active imagination. I am pretty easily freaked out, and I do weird things when I am scared, and it got me thinking of what the other people were doing when they were scared.  I realized, that people really do like, the worst, most illogical things when freaked out. I mean seriously. If there actually was someone/something to be scared of, we would make it so much worse by doing what we do. I mean, think about it. It’s so dumb.

Things people do:

  • Wrap up in a blanket (aka tangle yourself up so as to make it harder to escape if there actually was something coming for you).
  • Cover their eyes (aka not be able to see or prepare for when it approaches).
  • Yell/say incoherent (or worse, coherent) things (aka tell them exactly where you are). << this one is my personal downfall.
  • Hide (aka, prolong the inevitable).

What kind of rituals are these!? So bright. Why don’t we help them some more. Gosh, with our happy help, the aliens, monsters, dead people, giant arachnids, or whatever is haunting your thoughts at any particular time, wouldn’t need to really even try that hard. I’m thinking the ‘bad guys’ are actually probably pretty wimpy, since they really don’t have to work that hard for their victims seeing as we help them so much. Food for thought. If they are all wimpy we shouldn’t be afraid in the first place. but if we weren’t afraid, we wouldn’t do stupid things, and the scary thing would be forced to not be wimpy any more, which in turn would make us scared, because they could actually do bad things. It really is a vicious circle.

A Worthy Opponent May 15, 2007

I applaud you, David of Troy, and Troy of Troy. Your efforts were valiant. I take my bow, and acknowledge defeat. I was pretty much pwned. My mythology dominating days are a thing of the past, and I will live out the last 3 weeks of my life in ancient Greece coming to terms with the fact that I was conquered by Trojans.

I just remind myself that while they may have won the battle, they lost the war. The Trojan one. And fell for the whole wooden horse thing. So there. Makes me feel a little better. The end.

 

Bigfoot Lives May 10, 2007

    Backpackers, campers, and hikers dream of a sighting. Admittedly skeptical, but hoping that one day they will see the creature of legends. They all want to see Bigfoot. This supposedly ‘mythical’ creature has haunted many stories, and tales throughout history. I wish with all my heart to see Bigfoot, and I believe that someday I will. Many people doubt Bigfoot’s very existence, but this doubt is unfounded. Bigfoot, obviously, not only lives, but is healthy, thriving, and currently dwelling deep in the forests of Colorado.

Why Colorado? It makes the most sense. Dense forests, as well as plentiful food supply and water. Sounds like a good setup for the guy. Bigfoot has been spotted in quite varied places, it is true. Montana, California, Oregon, Ohio, you name the place, Bigfoot has been seen there. There is an explanation for this. Obviously, there is not only one Bigfoot, but a whole family or maybe even species of the creature. Where Colorado is the place that the head creature, the Bigfoot lives, other places house different bigfoot’s. Or maybe he is a very fast runner. That possibility should not be counted out. Either way, Bigfoot romps through the forests, headquartered in Colorado, and the family he may or may not have, may or may not live in different places, explaining the sightings. The forests shield him, or possibly them, from many prying eyes of the public, and the water and food keep him, or possibly them, healthy and strong.

Even with this logical solution to Bigfoot’s housing problems, people still refuse to believe  in Bigfoot’s existence. These people overlook the many eyewitness accounts of encounters over the years. I had the honor of meeting one such eyewitness, a man who saw Bigfoot for himself. His overalls weren’t too incredibly dirty, and even though he referred to himself as “St. Charles the Second,” I am confident that his account of the encounter is basically true. People usually don’t believe him, but I think that just because a man doesn’t do his taxes for a few years, and marries his daughter off to her own cousin, doesn’t mean he isn’t trustworthy. Furthermore, St. Charles the Second is not the only person who has seen Bigfoot. Many others- and some of them not certifiably insane- have spotted this creature of legends. Many tracks of the animal have been found, confirming these sightings beyond the shadow of a doubt. These footprints could not be faked. Probably.

It is true that Bigfoot has been reported to look different ways. Sometimes he is made out to look like a large monkey, walking on two legs. Other times, Bigfoot is said to be more human like, but extremely hairy. Certain individuals use the differences to show that Bigfoot couldn’t exist, for the accounts vary, and cannot be trusted.  Ape and man, however, are not that different. In almost every Biology class in the country, kids are taught that man is merely monkey, but evolved. I don’t feel that we should judge what is man, and what is ape, seeing as people are supposedly just ape plus a few million years. Bigfoot very well could be somewhere in the process of evolving. If we take evolution as truth, ask no questions, and don’t think too much, Bigfoot doesn’t seem completely unlikely.

Bigfoot exists. There is no question about it. He has been sighted by almost fairly reputable sources, and his footprints have been seen. The differences in location and appearances are explained with some thought. People need to stop asking questions, and digging deeply into the story. Embrace the fact that Bigfoot lives.
