Loch Ness Monster Seen?
I'm posting this message from Paris, France. So far I've been finding it very hard to get onto the internet, but when I turned on my laptop in my hotel room I discovered that someone nearby is running an open wireless network (it's definitely not the hotel... I think it's the cafe on the corner).

Anyway, when I visited Loch Ness a few days ago I didn't think I had seen the monster, until I later examined the pictures I had taken. Then I noticed this mysterious object on the Loch that I didn't see while taking the picture. Perhaps it's just a small boat... or perhaps it's Nessie. Hmmm. image


By the way, if you ever stay in Loch Ness, skip the Loch Ness Lodge. It's a tourist trap. Opt for the Benleva Hotel instead. That's where the locals hang out. It's also got a great restaurant. I had kangaroo meat for dinner there (kangaroo meat in Loch Ness!!).

I know how to catch Nessy - the answer is - Pop Rocks candies. Just put some food in the lake that will generate lot of CO2 in Nessy's belly.

Much of what is being displayed in Loch Ness are unfortunately hoaxes, perpretrated by either the business mafia in Drumnadrochit or Adrian Shine, who are deceiving the world that he is a scientist when he in reality is a former printer from London with no academical education at all. GUST reveals the truth about the Loch Ness Monster on our homepage at http://www.cryptozoology.st

Yup,it's a kangaroo in a motor boat.
gulp
It might be Nessie.... But it might be a boat too.

I also see a fainter dot somewhat to the left of the red circle...That's probably just a boat, though.

Just saw an episode of World Famous Hoaxes on Discovery Channel which included one regarding Loch Ness - a father/son team had created a rubber coated monster like prop and had engineered it to bob up and down - they would put her in the lake early in the morning before tourists would show up, do their magic and would pull her out at night. First several attempts she capsized and they were almost unable to turn her upright. It was amazing how they pulled it off - tourists were just amazed and grabbing for the cameras in disbelief. So funny, but actully pretty realistic looking creature they designed.. Its a wonder not more than just a few people try to fool us - wouldn't it be quite funny if several "monsters" started to surface about the same time - wouldn't that just blow the minds of not only the Scottish but everyone around the world - ???

You're all wrong, Gentlemen! What's been photographed is GARY CAMPBELL floating on his back with a case of strong beer on his belly!

Isn't it weird and fake???!!!
Posted by NONEEDTONO  on  Wed Jan 11, 2006  at  04:35 PM
I say it's nessie, I believe it's actauly refered-or should be, refered to as pleseosauras. (sp?) (Yes i'm a christain) When Noah took all the LAND creatures on to the ark he left the WATER creatures in the sea, including the dolphin and fish. After the flood those creatures were still alive because they lived in the water and i think that included the pleseosauras (sp?). And it survived the flood and is now alive today along with all the other sea creatures that we see today. Just post me a question if you whant to know more what I have to say (And don't make em' hard I'm only 12)

Nessy is a true champion!!!!!! Oh umm i think Noah left the WATER animals in the water because if he took them out they would die with a loss of oxygen. duh.

Good Hunting Sir,
With sun shine from San Diego Area,
Dennis
