Loch Ness Monster spotted on Google Earth

A couple of Lake Monster stories here for ya:

Loch Ness Monster spotted on Google Earth


The image, which can be seen on the satellite mapping program, depicts a large object resembling a sea creature clearly visible beneath the surface of the water.

Jason Cooke told The Sun he spotted "Nessie" while browsing the website's satellite photos. Mr Cooke, 25, of Nottingham, said: "I couldn't believe it. It's just like the descriptions of Nessie."

Researcher Adrian Shine, of the Loch Ness Project, told the newspaper: "This is really intriguing. It needs further study." The image can be seen by entering coordinates Latitude 57°12'52.13"N, Longitude 4°34'14.16"W in Google Earth.

100 foot snake sighted in Borneo

A member of a disaster team monitoring flood regions on the South East Asian island is said to have captured the image while hovering over the Baleh river in a helicopter.

The shot, which shows a green, wavy object floating along the meandering river, has sparked rumours that a mythical snake called Nabau has returned to the area.

Sceptics have joined the debate claiming that it is nothing more than the work of photo-editing software.

Rather like the myths surrounding Scotland's Loch Ness Monster, legend has it that a terrifying 100ft snake called Nabau, with a dragon's head and seven nostrils prowled Borneo's rivers.

Villagers who claim to have seen the snake in the flesh have now named it Nabau, after the folklore sea serpent which was thought to be able to transform itself into the shapes of different animals.

Weird Sloth-Mutation attacks children

Here's the latest in wtf creature sightings that seem are becoming more common.

"Gollum-Like" monster attacks children

A slimy, glob-like creature dubbed Gollum has terrified children after it slithered out of a lake and clambered over the rocks towards them.

The young teenagers were playing by the waterfront in a Panama lake near Cerro Azul when the bald beast emerged from a cave behind a waterfall. They started screaming as it shuffled out "as if to attack them".

Locals told Panama news the monster was like "Gollum from Lord of the Rings".

Of course then the children did the only sensible thing when confronted by a freakish hairless mutation - they threw rocks at it until it died. This could have been the last of an endangered species of mutant sloth-things. Good job kids.

This thing is pretty bizarre looking, even for a mutant.

Hawaii bans smelly people from public transport

Picture not related

Apparently it's a crime now to be smelly and ride the bus in Honolulu:

Hawaii - Stinky city bus riders soon could get soaked. The Honolulu City Council is considering a bill that would impose up to a $500 fine and/or up to six months in jail for public transit passengers convicted of being too smelly.

The bill will be heard Thursday in committee. It would make it illegal to have "odors that unreasonably disturb others or interfere with their use of the transit system."

It doesn't matter if it's body odor or offensive fumes that emanates from clothes, personal belongings or animals.

I imagine there would be the Hawaii Smell Patrol would go around sniffing for noxious offenders. That would be a good TV show.
