    Re: Florida skunk apes – Florida was settled by the Spanish in the 1500’s, why did it take 300 years before anyonesaw a skunk ape & why did the natives not know about it?

    I believe I technically count as a millennial (I’m 31) and you couldn’t pay me to be near alternative medicine. When I am putting my life in the hands of anyone or anything, I like a little bit of science to back that up. But, then again, I am a scientist.

    Re: Bigfoot vs. Nazis — I kind of have a soft spot for low-budget campy scifi movies and this sounds like a whopper. I hope it’s so bad it’s good, in a Killer Clowns from Outer Space way. This needs to happen.

    Re: Humans using more than 10% of their brains — Yeah, I know evidence shows that we use 100% of our brains, but then how do you explain:

    * A film called ‘Bigfoot vs. Nazis’ getting funded
    * Just about any Youtube comment
    * Belief in chemtrails
