Is Nessie back?

Gordon Holmes, a 55-year-old lab technician from Shipley, Yorkshire, shot some interesting video on Saturday that's really making some waves. While conducting some experiments at Loch Ness, Holmes was stunned to see the image of what appeared to be an approximately 45 foot animal moving through the loch at about 6 mph.




Nessie watcher and marine biologist Adrian Shine viewed the video and hoped to properly analyze it in the coming months. "I see myself as a skeptical interpreter of what happens in the loch, but I do keep an open mind about these things and there is no doubt this is some of the best footage I have seen," said Shine. As the largest inland sea in Britain, with a depth of about 750 feet, we may never know what lurks in it's depths.

"There are a number of possible explanations to the sightings in the loch. It could be some biological creature, it could just be the waves of the loch or it could some psychological phenomenon in as much as we see what we want to see," Shine said.


The Scottish media, which is understandably skeptical of most Nessie stories, believed Holmes' footage to be of such good quality that even the normally reticent BBC Scotland aired the video on its main news program Tuesday.

Good grief! It didn't look like much to me. Could have been a floating piece of wood!

I wonder if there are eels living in that loch. I didn't ever see anything that resembled a "body" in that footage, nor have I ever seen that in other photos alledging to be Nessie - but that did kind of look interesting.

While they are at it, maybe they could get someone to stop me from making dyslexic typos like jsut instead of just.

Oh, OK. Maybe it's just Sasquatch/Bigfood taking a swim.

Stan - With wood like THAT, you'd be in porn movies!

Robert - (groan) Let's put them all into "loch - up". . .

Hill - How very UNAmerican of you to suggest that another country has a sasquatch! ;)
