Yeti Update

Japanese team finds 'yeti footprints' in Nepal - Telegraph: "A team of Japanese adventurers say they have discovered footprints they believe were made by the legendary yeti said to roam the Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet.

'The footprints were about 20 centimetres (eight inches) long and looked like a human's,' Yoshiteru Takahashi, the leader of the Yeti Project Japan, told AFP in Kathmandu."

When I was in the Peace Corps, I knew a doctor who was working with a group trying to find the Yeti. Their theory was that they didn't live in the harsh mountains of Nepal, but down in the lush valleys where they could find food, water and shelter. The theory was that they only strayed occasionally into the high altitudes. As far as I know, the team never found evidence of Yetis in the valleys.

I think it's a compelling theory. My own theory about sasquatch is that they inhabit the bars and coffee houses of Seattle.

Now that's a compelling theory.

A footprint eight inches long? Paris Hilton has bigger puppies.
