A British amateur scientist (oxymoron?) has supposedly captured footage of the Loch Ness monster. See it here (http://www.stv.tv/content/news/north_scotland/display.html?id=opencms:/news/north_scotland/Man_believes_he_has_filmed_nessie).

What do you reckon? Is this Nessie? Is there a Nessie? What is Nessie?

Its a seal!

I used to believe there was something there but with all the fakes that have been uncovered i've lost faith.

I feel the same way here I think no one will ever really prove nessie exists.

I don't know how I feel about the truth of Nessie, but I know that Scottish newscasters are the only Scottish people I can understand.

With the repeated sightings, wouldn't it be awesome if something was actually there? I don't know particularly much about doctoring videos, but that one looks real enough to my eyes.

The video definatly shows something, but it's always a case of whether it's a set up or not, and even if it isn't, then what is the thing moving, if it's even alive.

It's moving pretty damn fast for a log of wood is all I'm saying.

I'd think Nessie would be dead by now if it did exist...I mean seriously, if it's an ancient dinosaur.....or did they live for like thousands of years?

well there might be more than one :p

hreh, its a good point though. If it was one creature the whole time, it was first reported in AD 565, putting its age at at least 1442 years... plus however old it was already in 565.

Maybe that's why the sightings are so few and far between...Nessie is so old, she has to spend years recovering from her trips to the surface...must be tough on those 2000 year old joints and bones :icon_razz

I'm not sure about the authenticity of the tape, but I do know one thing.
1978 called and it wants its hairstyle back.

No need to bring my sex life into this...

Seriously though, if there is something there, I imagine it's some sort of beast left over from an era long, long ago.

Leonie

I think it's a few of those. That would explain the sightings over such a long period of time.

Yeah, what Leoniepedia said.
When in doubt, agree with Leonie. ;)
There are a lot of critters (alligators, crocodiles, sharks, etc.) that are leftovers from millions of years ago. And didn't they recently (as in the last few decades) pull some fish with an unspellable name out of the ocean that had supposedly been extinct for millions of years?

well the bbc did a sweep of the entire lock.. and found nothing... not even a big rock.

That tells you how good they are. Surely, there are giant rocks in a lake at that location...

They need to do what they did in the Simpsons and just drain the whole lake...that'll reveal it.
