I'm big in lists.  They help me organize this chaotic, neuro-atypical brain of mine.

To me, the first resistance one hits with the menk as possible involvement with DPI is the argument "they aren't real," followed by lack of corroborating evidence at the scene.

First argument is the more important that the second.  Menk, Bigfoot, Yeti, Sasquatch all have folklore stories told.  We can even go back in history and see hairy, bipdal, humanoid figures.  The grendel in the Beowulf saga.  Wendigos are kind of similar.  There are illuminated manuscripts from the middle ages that depict man like beings completely covered in hair.  The represents two lists actually: Yeti, Sasquatch, Bigfoot, Menk have all been seen, some have been videoed or photoed.  The second list are actual folklore and myths, but those often come from some bit of reality.  Grandpa and his mother.  Would we classify them as Bigfoot?  Wendigo?  I know other  countries have their myths.  What do any of you have in your folklore or bedtime stories that could be along these lines?

Volume 1 (which i'm two thirds through) has been written to answer exactly this question. Vol 1 is concerned with folklore mainly in the european and native american tradition, occasionally asia (russia). Vol 2 is concerned with evidence so looking forward to that.


Vol 1 is a dry read mainly because it is lists of lists with added text!

Historical candidates for "british bigfoot" would include the woodwose and the boggart.

Holy crap the typos *sighs*  I apologize for that.  It seems my night time self has once again figured out how to get around the password encoded internet access set up to STOP my nighttime posting.  At least I can see where I was going with this, for a change, lol!

No worries.
