I am now more educated than I was before, and if I happen to run into a yeti, I will have an excellent topic to break the ice.

"the taxonomic question has recently been solved, through the power of Science."

Oh, Science! - Is there nothing you can't do?

This is exactly what the Yeti want us to think.

Dammit! I was about to post a link about the ontogeny of the Yeti. Now it would just be a double.

I'd just like to point for the record that this is just a THEORY of yeti taxonomy. THEORY. Other, equally valid explanations for the yeti's provenance can be found in the Book of Genesis.

If we are going to discuss these issues in a serious way and educate young people then I think it behoves us to consult multiple sources of complete bullshit - not just one.
