Is the Loch Ness Monster real? Nessie photos, sightings, theories and myths
Ever since the Loch Ness Monster was "discovered" in 1933, one popular theory has been that this lake-dwelling creature is a plesiosaur --a type of marine reptile that was supposed to have gone extinct 65 million years ago, at the end of the Cretaceous period. This is an easy claim for so-called cryptozoologitsto make, and a very difficult one to prove--and the weight of the evidence is that, if the Loch Ness Monster truly exists and that's a very big "if" , the odds are extremely slim that it could be a plesiosaur. Before we get to the issue of what type of animal the Loch Ness Monster might be, we first have to explore the issue of whether or not the Loch Ness Monster really exists. The first "sighting" of this presumed lake dweller occurred in 1933 perhaps, not so coincidentally, the year the movie "King Kong" was released by a local Scottish journalist who related the experience of one of his neighbors: "the nearest approach to a dragon or pre-historic animal that I have ever seen in my life," the man is quoted, further elaborating that it carried what looked like a newly killed animal in its mouth. Here, in a prehistoric nutshell, is pretty much every Loch Ness story down to the present day. Well, my friend's dentist's sister was walking by the lake one day when she saw... Of course, it doesn't help that most if not all of the physical evidence attesting to the Loch Ness Monster has been faked.
Is the Loch Ness Monster Really a Marine Reptile?
Puppetry of the Penis is a performance show. The show was initially conceived as the title of an art calendar by Australian Simon Morley, showcasing 12 of his favourite penis installations known as Dick Tricks. On New Year's Eve in 1997 he had a garage full of calendars to sell, and with requests for live demonstrations mounting he finally decided to create an act with fellow Aussie David "Friendy" Friend. The theatrical contortion of the male genitalia penis , scrotum , and testicles into various positions along with comedic narration has since spread internationally. It is humorously called "Dick Trick" or "genital origami," referring to the flexibility of the human penis, testicles and scrotum.
