Our long time member Tirademan (R.I.P. Scott McClean) compiled this extensive archive of Sasquatch related newspaper articles and donated it to the BFF before his passing. The earliest articles in this collection are from 1818 in Florida, 1877 (Australia), 1884 (Canada) and 1764 (Europe).
True, but intramembral ratios CAN be determined and compared to norms. That's what they are for and are used all the time. Patty has a height to shoulder width ratio of 2.32. Average Human male is 3.87. It means IF Patty was 7' tall, her shoulder width ratio would put her shoulder span at 36 inches. Average 7' Human male? Not a body builder? 22".
Ratios work as long as the same scale reference is used in all criteria whether it be inches, millimeters, feet or meters. Didn't really want to get into this but, for where the discussion is right now, it may help some.
Not oversimplifying anything, just asking a question. Because it very much isn't settled whether it is someone in a costume and no matter how high quality a video is (the PG film is not), you cannot extrapolate measurements without a defined reference point for which there is none in the video.
I have of course read some analysis,and back and forth on the subject but I am by no means an expert on the PG film so I I will take your advice and see what some of the discussions here have to offer.
LMAO did you just unironically do that? I'm so sorry I'm challenging your beliefs. It must be so difficult for you.
Agreed, the truth can be funny sometimes, Huntster, that's for sure. I guess the air approach was inevitable because scientists do say "Why not" sometimes. I just wish they'd say "Why not Sasquatch?" at some point. LOL.
We have had numerous discussion over the years on the Sasquatch's existence. Numerous more on the possibilities of territorial vs. migratory. I have made statements regarding the high levels of government surveillance capability both terrestrial and extraterrestrial. This MoveBank stuff supports that surveillance situation in a big way. A bigger way than I had ever thought before today. And that's just animals. What about this Forum, it's researchers, and THEIR movements. I think it's come to a point, or has been there for a while, where we might have to rethink things. I also think that knowing about this kind of animal monitoring and it's future is valuable for us to know as it could be instrumental in shaping how we do things.
Some may not care and simply keep to their methods but if what we're seeing out there, or better, not seeing out there, has changed, or has the potential to change as more and more animals get tracked or electronically tagged......I mean, at what point do I sell my FLIR? When I do research I do it in a truck that can be tracked. Does that put me out of the game? Was I ever even IN the game? In a way, with what this MoveBank monitoring technology can do, what can I do in the are of Sasquatch discovery? Is it even possible any more?........I need a nap
