I Found The Loch Ness Monster!

Here's something of interest to skeptics.

A few months ago, The Sun published this uncritical article. Seems that a security guard was playing with Google Earth and claims to have spotted The Loch Ness Monster.

I was so excited about it that I decided to find The Loch Ness Monster myself on WikiMapia.

Well, I found it! Here's my picture.

Now, here's the image that The Sun published.

Wow! Want to know a secret? My picture is not in Loch Ness, but in Lake Taneycomo near Branson, Missouri.

Is there a lake monster at my old fishing spot? Lake Taneycomo and Loch Ness are two completely different lakes. So, what does the two lakes have in common? Boats. Both pictures are of boats. I'm sure of it.

Ha! They both look like boats.

I've never seen even one supernatural claim that wasn't easily debunked with a little critical thinking.

Yeah, Lorena, that's because they are boats. If the security guard had looked at other lakes, he'd have noticed that just about all of them have "monsters" in them.

One of my favorite aspects of the Loch Ness story is that in the early 1970's they were filming a movie at loch ness with a phony loch ness monster (which I think was even phoney within the plot of the movie). Anyway, the life-size thing sank into the loch and now, when they run sonar scans of the lake, there is a 'monster' shape that appears in one spot. From what I've heard they've never retrieved it.

So, in essence, humanity wanted a monster in loch ness and now humanity's put one there. sorta.

What was the name of the movie Billy? I'd be interested in researching this. I've heard about the scans showing something, but never heard of the movie.
