Believe it or not - after a long hiatus, the Loch Ness Monster affectionately known as "Nessie" is back in the news. 55-year old Gordon Holmes says he's got the proof!
Here is a link to the story and video.
Most folks have regarding the "monster" as urban legend, while others have believed that the creature still exists and lurks in the Loch. Scientists have spent thousands of hours and plenty of money chasing the allusive creature.
The video is interesting in that a 45 foot long - something is captured lurking across the Loch. For the longest time, most scientists have declared that the monster is probably overgrown sturgeon that enter through the inlets, and nothing more.
It's quite possible that a dinosaur variety (perhaps a Plesiosaurs as Nessie is often depicted) could have existed some time ago, but based on most input by scientists that the Loch would be incapable of supplying enough food and nutrients for a creature that size to live. Still, 4000 logged sightings claim that old Nessie makes occasional appearances, and not all of them were drunk on Scotch. Nessie feeds our imagination and hope of some that there is more to this Earth than what we see around us. Here is a good Nessie site to peruse if you have the time. and another that takes a skeptical look at the creature.
