    "[Nessie] ‚ is not a biological full time zoological animal but rather that it is a paranormal/supernatural/ wormhole-traversing being that will never be caught nor killed. And we have a film that shows it coming from a space-time wormhole, and going later back into it’ “

    The quest for an elusive film of Nessie by the legendary Jon Erik Beckjord!

    It transpires that his estate is curated by his sister who promises a catalogue of his exhibits and a biography! :)

    Yes he is. I remember the documentary that aired the year he started living there. I believed he'd find smething back in those days.

    This guy has some dedication to his cause, a lost one though I suspect it is. I'm glad his efforts have been recognised. Of course, Adrian Shine is probably the poster boy for monster research at the loch, being instantly recognisable with his big beard.

    Playing catch up with issues of FT, I am only just up to 341 and the Nessie and Other Lake Monsters issue.

    I've always scoffed somewhat at the idea that Nessie sightings in the 1930s could have been influenced by the appearance of dinosaurs in Hollywood pictures such as King Kong at that time. Similarly the idea that the 1950s bump in UFO interest and sightings was in reaction to comic books full of strange worlds and saucers.

    However, with the recent spike in reported experiences with Slender Man - an openly acknowledged internet invention - it certainly begins to give a modern example of how a connection can be made between issues in contemporary culture and reports of the paranormal/unexplained.

    That was just an interesting point I had on my Metro ride this morning.

    Steve has actually seen something, large humps in the water. He thinks they are wels catfish.
    I once saw an 8 footer in a small lake in Lancashire.

    I think that some of the sightings are of huge fish, catfish, sturgeons and most interestingly eels.

    The Irish horse eels have always intrigued as well. There are some sodding large eels in NZ, so a new species of very large eel (or OOP existing species) is plausible.

    Didn't someone suggest that Nessie is some sort of supernatural/other dimensional entity that Aleister Crowley summoned while he was living at Boleskine House on the side of the Ness? If it pops in and out of our dimension that would account for it not apparently eating and no-one ever having found a body or Nessie poo.

    (BTW I can't find the reference for this and it's entirely possible I've imagined the story...)

    Is the government hiding Nessie. Sounds watertight to me!

    The 8th sighting this year. Must admit it looks like a wave to me.

    Maybe Nessie is a liquid monster like the tentacle thingy in The Abyss :)

    Found this list of sightings
