Haters will say it's been shopped...

Anyone else aware that somebody made an account under the name Sasquatch on Oct. 30 2000 and never posted anything? Me either until I tried to find a category for this non-idea.
Almost like they don't exist.
So... fitting.

Well my friends I have come into possession of definitive proof of Bigfoot!
Completely unaware that I was even on camera at the time, Sasquatch has been caught on film having a 2fries sighting.
That's right.
I didn't even see it myself but that majestic creature is going to go back to its pack or bevy or whatever they call a group of themselves ranting and raving about about having a Little-Wiener encounter and none of them are going to believe it.


They're just misunderstood. https://us.zonerama...00016407/1000619020

Not sure if this is shopped or a guy in a Bigfoot suit. And I'm sorry, Randy, but I don't think your bigfoot is the Kokanee Sasquatch. A close cousin, maybe? [Canuck, Jun 11 2022]

       That’s a bedbug enlarged 500% then Photsqautched.
xenzag, Jun 10 2022

       I see the other sasquatch had a camera.
pertinax, Jun 10 2022

       That's not even a good attempt at a photoshop job. Why's the underside of his foot so pixel-perfect squared off with camera horizontal axis? Why is his hand chopped off in a perfectly vertical axis?   

       Why does the man have a green fuzz outline around his jeans that doesn't match the background? Why are both floating with no shadows?   

       I thought you were supposed to have amazing eyes. This is just sad attention-seeking.
RayfordSteele, Jun 10 2022

       That is an actual photo of me [Ray]. A buddy just photo-shopped in bigfoot and sent it to me but that is the only thing shopped in this picture.
I thought you guys would think it was funny is all.

       My eyes are fine.   

       Enthusiastic bun for actually making a light hearted joke. [+]
doctorremulac3, Jun 10 2022

       I thought it was funny..... none of bones are from me.
xenzag, Jun 10 2022

       Gotcha. It's a pic of you but not in the same background. He chopped the edge of your foot off. Consider it the guy who cried "Sasquatch."
RayfordSteele, Jun 11 2022

       Well he might have shopped us both, I don't know. I didn't question it.
My friend sent me picture of me, on my property, with a photoshopped bigfoot seeing me and me not noticing.
It is so obviously not definitive proof that I didn't think there would be any blowback when I prefaced the the thing with "Haters will say it's shopped."

       Of course its shopped. That's the funny. I think the Sasquatch is straight out of a Kokanee beer ad and is instantly recognizable to a large number of people.   

       Sorry I broke the rules posting a non-idea. I'd like to be able to say that I will never do it again but that would probably be a lie.   

       I like funny.   

       I thought it was funny too. But I didn't bun it, because it's not an idea.
pertinax, Jun 11 2022

       [2 fries] makes a good point. It's likely Bigfeet can't see humans through all that hair and don't really believe we exist.
4and20, Jun 11 2022

       I plugged "Hendersons Bigfoot" (for the movie "Harry & the Hendersons") into a search and it gave me a link to another possibly-shopped image.
Canuck, Jun 11 2022

       I know this janitor at work who is notorious for bringing up a lunar landing conspiracy that he insists is true and has rattled on about for years whenever I run into him. I imagine if he were to send me a pic in jest that he says supports his theory, and I had prior suspicions about his judgment anyway, I'd probably be annoyed by that, too. This was kinda the same situation.
RayfordSteele, Jun 11 2022

       At least you now know that I tell the same stories in real life that I tell on-line.
Do you take every opportunity to attack his character like you do with mine?

       I don't usually think about him, honestly.
RayfordSteele, Jun 12 2022

       I must hold a special place in your heart then.   

       I've never tried this with conspiracy theory people because it might be mean and it's kind of disrespctful, but what if you took their theory and doubled up on the absurdity so THEY were the ones telling YOU that's crazy?   

       So they might say the Moon landing was a hoax and filmed in Hollywood. Okay, you say "Yes, but it wasn't Hollywood, Hollywood didn't have the technology, there's proof this was filmed in Area 51 with help from aliens." Then show "leaked" photos of the fake Moon landing stage with an alien behind the camera. Make if fuzzy obviously.   

       I think the better way it so respectfully engage in such a way that you might at least prime them to look at something critically. I also know what motivates them, I love conspiracy theories myself, it's just that almost all of them are bunk.   

       And 2 fries, again, kudos for putting up entertaining stuff.
doctorremulac3, Jun 12 2022

       Check out the link I posted and see what you think…
xandram, Jun 12 2022

       I would so love for those pictures to be real and not created, but extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof, so I'm skeptical but open to any new information that might come out. Keep in mind though, I'm not certain of anything. I'm only 99.9999% sure I'm not an AI simulation whose programmers just said "Load the Bigfoot question algorithm."   

       But I'd start with a question that I'd have for zoologists who are smarter than me about bigfoots.(I think that's the plural for them). How does such a rare animal procreate? I assume they do the standard mating thing that most animals do. Has there ever been such a rare animal of that size that we pretty much never see? How do they find each other to get a date if we can't find them with all our technology?   

       And I ask this as a person who would love bigfoots to be real. Seems possibly that an ape like animal could have taken a different evolutionary path in the new world after Pangea split up, but gotta weigh that against the fact that people do dress up in funny costumes and put out fake pictures.
doctorremulac3, Jun 12 2022

       When we had our run in my brother and I found nests of hair in the caves we were exploring, which were gated off as a bat sanctuary the following year.   

       According to the natives here Sasquatch are nocturnal, can walk between worlds and disappear even as you are looking at them. [link]   

       No, it's that this place holds a special place, and when it becomes about what it wasn’t meant to be then I get bothered.
RayfordSteele, Jun 12 2022

       Yeah it holds a special place for me too. I don't bother to try and make just anybody laugh.
Time is precious.

       You seem to be bothered by almost everything that comes out of my face and bent on shaming me into silence.
Not sure what I did to pick your ass but you are welcome to filter me out and be less bothered by my presence.

       I don't think that every other person here shares your opinion of me and tangential [marked-for-expiry] offshoots have been going on here for the entire twenty some odd years we've been here.   

       So is it my conduct?
Or your dislike of the group you've subconsciously lumped me into?

       I've heard your stories. I don't buy them although I believe that you believe them. I don't shame you into silence when you talk about something else. It's just a sore subject that dragged on and on and on.
RayfordSteele, Jun 13 2022

       I allow no other being the right to shame me to silence for any reason.
My little stories are the life I've lived and I had to give up caring if I am believed.
You attempt to shame me to silence about a subject you have absolutely no knowledge of while I, even though ridiculed for admitting having encountered a subject, do have knowledge.

       Why the hell do you think that your uninformed opinion trumps my actual experience?   

       Why should I care?   

       [2 fries], if you don't care, then there's no problem; take a break, think about something else, stop for tea. It'll be fine. Come back when you've had a fun idea. We'll have the usual welcome ready. ;-)
pertinax, Jun 13 2022

       I'm a fan 2 fries, no breaks allowed. We need you here.
doctorremulac3, Jun 13 2022

       I'm not going anywhere unless evicted.   

       When I said, "why should I care?" it was in regards to caring about offence taken by others not being my responsibility but their own. Nothing to do with not caring about this place.   

       Passive aggressive censorship doesn't sit well with me.   

       If you don't care that you've told the same stories over and over to the same people, then I guess I don't care that you get an eyeroll or three.   

       It's the same sort of social cue we give to xenzag whenever she makes a post that's a thinly-disguised political rant. Does she feel censored? Is it passive? Do I care?
RayfordSteele, Jun 14 2022

       You care enough to be bothered, and you didn't need me to retell my Sasquatch story before getting in my face.   

       Are there any social media locations that would be more welcoming to general personal exchanges than the halfbakery itself and its famously short-tempered proprietor? I'd be happy to highlight those on the links page or something.   

       Barring those, a really good place to link to fun videos you or your friends made about things other than poorly thought-out ideas for inventions would be your user page. People who care can visit and laugh, and people who don't care don't have their fur/feathers/scales ruffled.

       Did it make you chuckle though?
