How come that the number of sightings and photographs are decreasing, not increasing? If she REALLY was in there, and with the large number of people that have smartphones and digital cameras these days then there should be an avalanche of high quality, non-photoshopped, non-grainy photos with appropriate background imagery to allow us to discern scale.

Okay, I have a philosophical argument to counter this. :shifty:

Years ago, before 'Nessie' came to the forefront of the public's mind (pre 1930s?) and at a time when getting to remote parts of Scotland was not an option for most, Loch Ness was a very quiet place. Very quiet. A place where Nessie could roam without much worry. Compare that to now, when about 500,000 people per year visit the loch. Suddenly, we have a very jumpy Nessie. A Nessie probably too timid to be active in the daytime. So, ironically, there's even less chance of getting a photo now than there was several decades back.

My advice: invest in some top-notch infra-red technology and a quiet dinghy.

Charlie Sheen did that last summer (sort of).

He went out on the loch at midnight on a small boat called The Time Bandit with a camera and a leg of lamb on a line thrown overboard.

Strange but true...
We are alive, so the universe must be said to be alive. We are its consciousness as well as our own. We rise out of the cosmos and see its mesh of patterns, and it strikes us as beautiful. And that feeling is the most important thing in all the universe.

A fuckin' leg of lamb? Does CS imagine that sheep regularly swim across the loch? :shock:

What's needed is a Fay Wray lookalike to be thrown overboard.

King Kong had Fay Wray, Nessie has Ted Danson.

The same goes for UFO's and apparitions etc. You'd think we would have a large increase in material now that just about everybody is tooled up.

Looks to be a boat.
The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.
