Startling Video Claims Bigfoot Sighting In Michigan

One of the greatest things about folklore is the endless creativity it displays. They can be a huge, water dwelling dinosaur, à la the Loch Ness Monster, or a glowing eyed winged humanoid like the Mothman. Alternatively, they could just be a big old hairy guy that looks like an overgrown gorilla and is easy to dress up as to scare people, like Bigfoot.

A heavyweight of North American mythology, Bigfoot or the Sasquatch is so famous that it's never far from the mind of anyone visiting the forests of the continent. Reported sightings are a cultural mainstay, and it was about time we received another one — which has come in the form of a video from the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization. They present the 4.7 second long footage, which was taken in Michigan, as part of a longer video explaining its context. It shows a large, brown figure crossing a river holding what appears to be a baby or small animal. 

While the narrator of the video remained open minded about whatever had been seen in the water, most viewers remained far from convinced of the purported sighting. Many claimed it was easy to see that the figure was wearing some sort of costume, or would look very different actually up close. Nonetheless, the footage has grabbed no small amount of attention. It proves that whatever we think about popular folklore, many of us are still intrigued about the idea of bumping into something creepy in the woods.

Stop Tumbling for a second Mr. Gen-Y, 'cause it's time for a friendly PSA! But only friendly enough so that your feelings won't get hurt.

We know all of those participation awards you won in elementary school have given you the false sense that you can do and be anything you want, but chances are you can't! And you won't!

Millions of twenty-somethings are fresh-faced out of college and feel a deep desire to become the next Oscar-winning, multi-platinum, Nobel Prize-winning CEO of Everything Ever. But, contrary to that one study you read a few weeks ago, not thinking about your student loans won't in fact cause them to disappear! Shocking!

No one realizes this more than the baby boomers. But they never released their dream debut album because they had things like:

  • Job security!
  • Affordable education!
  • The constant threat of nuclear war!
  • Authoritarian parents!
  • A functioning economy!
  • And optimism tempered with a healthy dose of realism!

But no one actually NEEDS those things to succeed in life, right? Beating 3 level 9 Kirby's with no handicap in Super Smash Bros. is hard, but it ain't impossible! RIGHT?

Let us say this in 140 characters or less so you'll understand: don't follow your dreams, because your job is supposed to suck!
