And here’s a few more points to consider:

1.  What would that animal have been doing on that island?  It is too small and barren a place to support an animal that large, and it’s too far to swim from any large land masses.  The only time it could have gone there would have been during one of the ice ages when there was thick ice from Eurasia to Franz Josef Land, but then why would it have walked all that distance northwards up into an icecap where the was no food?  It would have gone southwards away from the ice, not into it.
2.  How are these people sailing around there in clear water in October?  The whole area was locked in ice at that time.
3.  Why would an expedition be sent out when the arctic Winter is getting ready to start?  Expeditions are sent out in the Spring or Summer.
4.  Why is there no record to be found of the company Polarneft Oil?
5.  Franz Josef Land isn’t as isolated as these people would have you think.  It is populated, with various meteorological and military installations scattered here and there.  Plus, there are plenty of tourism companies that send tours up there.  That island has been well-surveyed (it’s notable for having the highest point in the archipelago) and visited often.
6.  Where is the helicopter coming from?  There’s no helipad on the ship.
7.  Why does the creature have the exact same name and exact same appearance as a creature from the video game?
8.  Unless you believe in spontaneous generation, there would need to have been a whole population of these creatures.  The remains of giant quadrupeds would be rather noticeable.  Where are they?

Monk, what the hell are you talking about? All the criticisms said here are valid. It’s clearly a hoax.

The third post on this page. And how it’s a viral ad for Shadow Of The Collosus. Notice how all these giants were discovered at the same time, as the game was coming out, and that the giants all look like monsters from the game. http://www.snopes.com/photos/tsunami/colossus.asp - Here, there is a video of another of these ‘giants’. It’s supposedly from a news report in 2004. Why is it just now becoming known, around the game’s release date? Why wouldn’t a news report on a giant like this spark news worldwide on this amazing find? And why does the giant that washed up due to the tsunami look just like a giant from the game?

It’s interesting how in those pictures of the Ice Giant the sun is bright and high in the sky, and yet at 81 degrees North latitude the sun never gets above the horizon after about the last week in October.  The Polarneft expedition must have some good connections if they can get the Earth’s axial tilt adjusted for their own benefit.

How are these people sailing around there in clear water in October?  The whole area was locked in ice at that time. [...] Expeditions are sent out in the Spring or Summer.

Franz Josef Land isn’t as isolated as these people would have you think.  It is populated, with various meteorological and military installations scattered here and there.  Plus, there are plenty of tourism companies that send tours up there.  That island has been well-surveyed (it’s notable for having the highest point in the archipelago) and visited often.

We have a winner! grin

Somebody write all the facts on a big bit of card and wave it in front of Monk’s face to see if he gets the message yet….
