The truth is out there. And by “out there” I mean anywhere but the internet. We see hundreds of images flash in front of our eyes every month. But these are the ones you might have seen recently that deserve a second look. Because they’re all fake.
It’s hard to dispute the existence of the mythical creature known as the Yeti, or Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, when you can buy a totally legit can of Yeti meat from ThinkGeek for just $10. What else do you think all those super strong Everest Sherpas have been eating? Spinach?
Headed to the beach this month? All manner of dedicated speakers, coolers and phone cases are going to be vying for your don’t-get-sand-or-water-in-it money. Do you really need to pay money to achieve that? Sometimes yes and sometimes no. Let’s look at the why and how and save you both cash and broken phones.
La leyenda del Yeti ha perdido un trocito más de la poca credibilidad que pudiera tener, si es que alguna vez tuvo alguna. Un reciente estudio de ADN publicado en la revista ZooKeys acaba de confirmar que las muestras de pelo atribuidas al mitológico hombre de las nieves del Tibet en realidad son de oso pardo del…
A couple of years ago, a DNA analysis of an ostensible sample of Yeti hair indicated that it may have belonged to a previously undiscovered ancestor of modern bears. A new genetic analysis now refutes this claim.
Koozies. They keep your hand from getting cold and your beer from getting warm—what could be better? One that keeps your beer cold for much, much longer, that's what.
Arriving just a day too late to keep your drinks cool during the big game, the folks from Yeti are back with another marvel of insulated engineering known as the Colster. Comparing it to those foam neoprene sleeves often referred to as Koozies is almost an insult, because the Colster is designed from the ground up to…
Only four days into 2015, and we already did it. We caught Big Foot. What a year!
They promise to keep your food and drinks cold while you're away from a fridge, but sometimes carrying a giant cooler is just overkill. For those times when you're only gone for a day, or just need to feed yourself, YETI has created a soft-sided cooler called the Hopper that's engineered to keep ice frozen for days,…
An unprecedented peer-reviewed genetic survey of more than 30 biological hair samples purportedly left behind by either Bigfoot or the Yeti shows they actually came from creatures considerably less mysterious... such as bears, horses, and cows.
When do you need to tell a prospective buyer your house is haunted? Where do you need a license to practice necromancy or to be reincarnated? And where can you file a lawsuit against a supernatural being? These real-life laws will tell you all that and more.
Aw, shucks. Science goin’ off and ruining everything again for cryptozoologists. The latest blow comes from a UK geneticist who says hair samples from an alleged Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, actually came from another — albeit real — creature from the north: an ancient hybrid between polar bears and brown bears.
Moving people and supplies across the Great White South is treacherous, difficult, and expensive with logistical costs constituting as much as 90 percent of an expedition's budget—about $125,000 a trip on average. And that's assuming the convoy isn't swallowed by an ice crevasse en route. But a new radar-equipped…
During the 1950s, oil magnate, adventurer, and cryptozoologist Tom Slick traveled through the Himalayas searching for evidence that a Yeti. Slick was obsessed with searching for cryptids, even going so far as to steal pieces of the Pangboche Hand, which legend held was a Yeti hand, from a Buddhist monastery in Nepal…
Genetic analyses have come a long way since researchers last took a serious look at remains claimed to belong to cryptids like yeti and bigfoot. Now, Oxford University researcher Bryan Sykes thinks it's time to revisit the issue using some of the most advanced analytical techniques available.
While most of us probably suspect that the yeti is a mythical beast, the finest minds in the world beg to differ. Which is why Oxford University has just announced that it is going on a yeti hunt, to establish once and for all whether the creature has ever existed.
In a manner of speaking, yes, Bigfoot did exist — although, perhaps not in the way many modern day cryptid enthusiasts surmise. In a piece written for Smithsonian's Hominid Hunting, Erin Wayman serves up the facts on Gigantopithecus — the car-sized quadruped that went extinct long before humans ever speculated about…
In 1974, Lap Kadoma — the wife of a Nepalese sherpa — had a close encounter with a Yeti. The legendary cryptid, Kadoma would later recount, had managed to sneak up on her from behind, before heaving her into a river. When Kadoma regained consciousness, she found the bodies of several dead yaks strewn nearby.
This is one of the weirdest animals I've ever seen: a furry white crab that only eats the bacteria growing on its claws and arms. It looks like a disgusting Christmas ornament if disgusting Christmas ornaments ate their own bristles.
