Bigfoots aren't real, you might say. They're just a myth, a story, a scam, a hoax, a publicity stunt. All of those things and more have been said on the subject.
And yet, for decades now, scientists all over the world have spent millions, in both cash and man-hours, investigating this phenomenon. Why would they do this? Why spend time and money on a myth? Why dedicate your life to a practical joke? Because that's what it must be, right?
And all of those videos and sightings of them? Just products of imagination and attempts to cash in on the gag, of course. People encountering Bigfoot is nothing uncommon; stories like that have been around for thousands of years.
Are all of them really lies though? Out of the thousands of these stories, are we really meant to believe none of them are true? We could say all of those people are liars, but sometimes, you just can't ignore the numbers you're dealing with.
So if you do believe it's just a myth and a joke, why should you keep them in mind when roaming the woods? Because the most dangerous thing is the one you're not expecting.
