Scientists say Bigfoot has a simple explanation

bigfoot explanation

The legend of Bigfoot has existed for generations. All around the world, tales of a hairy, humanoid creature lurking in the woods have sprouted, some even offering video evidence. However, scientists believe Bigfoot's existence could have a very simple explanation. According to researchers, we can probably attribute these mysterious sightings to rare occasions of bears walking on their hind legs.

American black bears usually tend to walk on all four legs. However, they will stand on their hind legs to get a clearer view of the area, catch a whiff of something interesting, and even reach foods higher up than they are. Now, a data analyst believes they may be able to prove that most Bigfoot sightings are really just sightings of black bears walking on their hind legs.

Floe Foxon, a data analyst at Pinney Associates, has put together an intriguing piece of research looking at multiple sightings of the famous cryptid. However, according to the paper, which is still yet to be peer-reviewed, many of the sightings of Bigfoot could easily be explained away thanks to black bear populations in those areas.

https://twitter.com/BigfootEvidence/status/1589096557118644224

Foxon isn’t the first to see a possible explanation for Bigfoot coming from animals, either. In 2005, another scientist compared projected black bear populations to Bigfoot sightings and found that perhaps another animal might be responsible for those misinterpreted sightings. Then, a paper in 2009 looked at the connection between Bigfoot and black bears once more. It showed a high degree of overlap between the two.

But, what’s really interesting is that Foxon’s rigorous data model shows that in many of the areas where black bears are very common and populous, sightings of the Bigfoot cryptid are more likely to happen. This could very well point towards the explanation for this mysterious creature coming down to misidentification.

But, there are still some Bigfoot sightings that can’t be explained away by simply waving your hand and saying it’s bears standing on two feet, as sightings have popped up in both Texas and Florida, where black bears are not known to breed or populate those areas. The explanation here, then, could be that we’re simply misidentifying multiple animals as mysterious and unknown species that don’t truly exist.

As such, Foxon believes that Bigfoot is really just humans misidentifying a bunch of different bears. Previously scientists have looked for explanations about other mysterious creatures, even testing Yeti DNA. Some even say it's possible that the Loch Ness monster is real, based on fossils found by scientists.

Squid Game reality show was rigged, contestants claim

Squid Game: The Challenge is a new Netflix reality series.

Last June, Netflix announced a reality competition show based on its original series Squid Game. The show, creatively titled Squid Game: The Competition, would feature 456 players competing in challenges similar to those from the Netflix series for a record-breaking cash prize of $4.56 million. Unfortunately, according to contestants, the competition show was a rigged disaster that mirrored Squid Game more closely than any of them could have imagined.

Was Squid Game: The Competition rigged?

On Thursday, Motherboard published a fascinating exposé about Squid Game: The Competition, which was already embroiled in controversy after The Sun reported multiple contestants had been injured. To add insult to injury, former contestants claimed the show was rigged from the start, and even explained to Motherboard how they came to that conclusion.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ay0kD3FSEU

According to the contestants that spoke to Motherboard, they were discouraged from speaking to one another from the moment they arrived. Early in the morning, prior to the first game, they were all loaded onto a freezing bus to be transported to an airport hangar where the filming would take place. They were reprimanded for speaking to other contestants during the bus ride.

Once they arrived at the hangar, the contestants were provided with "weak coffee and breakfast sandwiches" that were all but frozen. They waited for two to three hours in a holding room, which is when they started talking and realized that while everyone had been given microphone packs, some of the mics didn't actually work.

The contestant that spoke to Motherboard talked with a number of other participants in that room. One had not applied at all but had been sought out by a producer. There were twins, a father and child, and a TikTok star among them. As they spoke, they realized that some of them already had flights booked for later that week while others didn't.

“I’m like, ‘Well, maybe it’s just cheaper for them to do that and do a change fee,” the contestant remembered telling the others, but many of them were skeptical. “I’m like, ‘But it’s a competition! They don’t know who’s going to win!’”

That's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the chaos and confusion the contestants had to deal with while participating, so be sure to read the entire piece from Motherboard if you want to know more. Netflix has still yet to announce a release date for Squid Game: The Competition, but honestly, that might be for the best.

Remarkable footage shows planets circling a star 133 light-years from Earth

planetary formation in proplanet disk

After more than a decade of observations, Northwestern University astrophysicist Jason Wang has constructed an amazing time-lapse video of four planets larger than Jupiter as they revolve around their star, giving viewers a one-of-a-kind glimpse into planetary motion.

Wang, assistant professor of physics and astronomy at Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, pointed out that it can be difficult to detect planets in a rotating orbit, which is why this video of planetary motion is so striking.

Objects in our solar system, like Jupiter and Mars, are barely visible since we are in the same system and don’t have a top-down view, Wang explains in a statement. Planetary events occur too promptly or slowly, making it hard to capture video of planetary motion of this caliber.

However, the video captured here showcases these motions on a human timescale, showcasing over 12 years of planetary motion for viewers to take in. It’s unlike anything we’ve seen before, showing just how much more there is for us to learn about our universe.

https://youtu.be/x9EG3gbQ5P0

HR8799, the system showcased in the video displaying the planetary motion, is located 133.3 light-years from Earth in the Pegasus constellation. This star is roughly 30 million years old and is 1.5 times more massive and five times brighter than our sun. In 2008, it became the first star system whose planets were directly captured in images.

From there, Wang began to watch the system, eventually capturing over 12 years of data which he has now turned into this time-lapse video showcasing the planetary motion within the system. And this isn’t the first time we’ve seen time-lapses of astronomical value popping up, either.

Last year, astronomers created a time-lapse of Jupiter’s rotation using half a million images. We’ve also seen time-lapses of sunspots, which astronomers have used to better study and understand the activity within our own star.

BTS member Jungkook just did Netflix a favor and gave a boost to the new series Physical: 100

Physical 100 on Netflix

Given that the K-pop group BTS is pretty much the biggest music act on the planet right now, you can probably imagine how whenever the group's individual members talk favorably about a product ... boom! Its sales immediately go through the roof. BTS member Jungkook, in particular, has been given the affectionate nickname of "Sold Out King" for his Midas-like ability to talk about anything and generate massive buzz around it. That's exactly what he just did on a live stream Friday morning in the US, during which he ate fried chicken as he watched Netflix's new Korean reality series Physical: 100.

We're not exaggerating here, by the way. As a matter of fact, Jungkook doesn't even have to talk, per se, about the things that make him the "Sold Out King." Also during his live stream, for example, members of BTS' "Army" -- the name for the group's passionate fandom -- spotted a particular candle that Jungkook uses which was visible during the live stream and ... you guessed it, it's already sold out.

EU’s green tech funding plans divides bloc over global subsidy race

The EU’s new green tech funding plan has sparked concerns about an escalating global subsidy race. The initiative was launched in response to the US’ Inflation Reduction Act. The act provides $369 billion of subsidies for green technologies, largely through tax credits for products “made in America.” The incentives have triggered fears that EU companies will be enticed to redirect investment and production to the US. Critics claim the measures amount to protectionism that violates existing trade agreements. In response to the act, the EU this week unveiled the Green Deal Industrial Plan — a roadmap to make the bloc’s…
