While you don't think that is realistic; what reason would a Big Foot have to move that drum? I think you presume it just wanted the exercise or that it hated clean water so it decided to toss in a drum of oil?
My first guess...the bigfoot didnt like the new intruders and their loud machines (destroying their habitat to make a road)...for MORE loud machines!

Funny thing though, back when I was a kid, we used recreational drugs quite often, we never did things like this, (we found better things to do)!

We did do stuff like that all the time. We also told "Bigfoot" stories to the city kids(our relatives or friends relatives visiting family). It is still pretty common among my friends to tell city folk fake stories, especially if we find out they are believers.

I live in rural SD and when I travel it is common to get people to believe we still live like people did 150 years ago.

Quite a few people that believe in the idea of flyover states; pretty much suffer from a condition known as EBI. Educated Beyond Intelligence. You can live in any state and suffer it as well.

Well, I was a city kid, so maybe it was different for kids growing up in the country.


We heard of Bigfoot back then, but never gave much thought to it either way, in those times, our priorities were friends, partying, chasing girls, drugs, drinking, etc!! LOL

The first I ever heard or read of BF was in the Boy Scout magazine and the article posted by 62. That didn't apply to us because I had no real sense of how far way Ca, was other than it was by the Pacific ocean. To further add to the disconnect from BF. About a year later we drove to Ca, and I rode all the way there In the back of a 49 Chevy in June-July. That was a long trip.
My first experience was 8-10 yrs later and the next morning we still had no idea thoughts about any BF at all.

Haha! I live in a rural area and have people I know convinced that many people here still don't have running water, electricity, indoor privy, and *gasp* no cable tv! Too funny.

It does not matter what it is; you point the finger in the direction of Big Foot. We do know that humans exist. We have pictures and bodies and DNA. We even talk about things like Big Foot on forums and many times meet other people face to face. Census workers even tell us that a little over 320,000,000 of us live in the USA. That does not stop you; it had to be something that not one of you can prove exist. Ignore the obvious and embrace the unknown.

It isn't only that but according to you all people in government lie and hide information from the public. But people in bars and people that make a living off promoting conspiracies and unknown creatures always tell the truth. I keep asking for proof and not one body has ever been found. Every animal in the US and many humans have been killed on our roads or by hunters in our forest; but no Big Foot. All we are left with are campfire stories.

You're thinking of Hobbits, not Bigfoot.


Quote:
Hobbits are an unobtrusive but very ancient people, more numerous formerly than they are today; for they love peace and quiet and good tilled earth: a well-ordered and well-farmed countryside was their favourite haunt. They do not and did not understand or like machines more complicated than a forge-bellows, a water-mill, or a hand-loom, though they were skilful with tools. Even in ancient days they were, as a rule, shy of 'the Big Folk', as they call us, and now they avoid us with dismay and are becoming hard to find. They are quick of hearing and sharp-eyed, and though they are inclined to be fat and do not hurry unnecessarily, they are nonetheless nimble and deft in their movements. They possessed from the first the art of disappearing swiftly and silently, when large folk whom they do not wish to meet come blundering by; and this an they have developed until to Men it may seem magical. But Hobbits have never, in fact, studied magic of any kind, and their elusiveness is due solely to a professional skill that heredity and practice, and a close friendship with the earth, have rendered inimitable by bigger and clumsier races.

I understand and recognize that people and Govts both lie about MANY things! They have their own reasons for lying of course, some are logical, others are not. There are even some people that do NOT believe the Holocaust took place...they believe it was all a big lie! (despite all the individual accounts, from people that were actually there!)


I understand your frustration about the lack of evidence with Bigfoot, it bothers me too, I have no idea why its like this...However, ALL the encounters and sightings, over so many years, and so many different locations...that has to be taken into consideration...they cannot ALL be lying!


Announcing that you have seen a Bigfoot is not a good thing for most people, they end up being ridiculed, they are accused of being liars, hoaxers, and worse, some people may loose their jobs...why would people lie about such a thing, when there are so many negative repercussions?
