November 24, 2012: analysis of extensive DNA sequencing of 'a novel hominin hybrid species, commonly called “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch” ... suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago as a hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an unknown primate species.
' The press release claimed that the research was "currently under peer-review," except that no scientific journal would publish the research, until now: DeNovo
, an open access scientific journal. But DeNovo isn't really open access, as it costs $30 to view the article, the paper itself is brand new, the domain was recently purchased
, and the website features generic stock photos. Ars Technica digs deeper
, summarizing some of the "open access" article, and providing a link to a particularly insightful clip on YouTube
, with an odd water mark. [more inside]

This entry from the
Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization website is kinda creepy, especially if you download the high resolution JPEGs and look at them in an image editor.

Bigfoot is dead.
The original 'creator' of the legendary bigfoot hoax has died. Some of his "work"
. How much more difficult to pull off would a 'hoax' of this magnitude be today?

Cooking With Bigfoot
is a flash series about a former TV star turned cable cooking show host (that happens to be a sasquatch). Episode one is up and looks like it could be a fine series when the rest are in place.
