I couldn’t possibly care less about Bigfoot, but I find Bigfoot-hunters fascinating, because they all routinely say things like this:
So let me clarify: You can hold opinions on squirrels, wombats, giraffes, speckled trout, butterflies, and all other members of the animal kingdom, but you can’t hold an opinion on Bigfeet unless you’re out tracking them and examining plaster casts of their alleged footprints. Even though they’re totally as real as all other animals.
Okay. Just so we’re clear on that. I don’t want to be seeing any opinions on Bigfeet from anyone who isn’t a Bigfoot field researcher. If you’re not out there on a regular basis, poking around the woods for Bigfoot poop, just shut yer piehole. But to be fair about this, I also don’t want to see any opinions on the following unless certain conditions are met:
– moon landings (unless you’re an astronaut or an aeronautical engineer)
– feng shui (unless you are a scientist who has proven the existence of qi in a lab)
– the collapse of the World Trade Center (unless you took a high school physics course; judging by the comments I’ve seen thus far, most Truthers do not qualify)
