    ..not only denied involvement but actively said that the suit was probably beyond even his capabilities at the time.

    Good Posting Practices

    Over the years we've tried various things with Chat. Closing it - as has been rightly pointed out - just shifts Chat stuff elsewhere. Further, as Enola said, Chat isn't where the issue lies so there's no need to close it. If you do find Chat that off-putting but still find yourself viewing Chat...

    Films That Would Not Get Made Today

    Yes, they're almost a different genre altogether. Cabby, Sergeant, Regardless are all gentle, slightly whimsical black and white British comedies. Think Boulting Brothers. From about '64 onwards they started upping the sauce, but as Naughty Felid rightly pointed out the seaside postcard aspect...

    Films That Would Not Get Made Today

    See also Carry On Up The Jungle for Bresslaw as a native bearer. My son and his other half bought me the entire Carry On collection for Xmas and I've rewatched most of them in chronological order (I bloody love Carry On films :) .) The early ones actually stand up quite well as typical of late...

    It's a good question. Religion, like Politics, tends to be very divisive - the only reason we keep it open as a field is that there is so much of Fortean interest in there. I suppose the Witnesses, for Brits at any rate, are the closest and most familiar example of a sect by dint of their...

    Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film

    Ultimately there are four possibilities: It was a hoax, and both Patterson and Gimlin were complicit (so Gimlin is lying.) It was a hoax, which Patterson arranged, and Gimlin was duped. It was a hoax, and both Patterson and Gimlin were duped. Or.. it wasn’t a hoax at all, and they filmed a...

    OK. We’ve tried. For my part, I’ve been direct: ..and I’ve tried to be constructive.. I’m not suggesting that people didn’t make helpful comments. What I am saying is that there are those that clearly didn’t get the point. There is still snarky arsiness and posts through which you can hear...

    No, but he was one of the most accomplished anatomical sculptors in the world. He knew better than almost anyone how to make a figure look lifelike and how they should appear in motion.

    Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film

    To quote myself: Nat Geog offered him a shedload of cash and any technical assistance he wanted, but he couldn't do it. Also - I know we come back to it frequently - both Chambers and Nikita Lavinsky, the Russian sculptor who specialised in anatomy repeatedly stated that any such suit would be...

    Quitters & Shape-Shifters: Last Words & Reincarnations

    Absolutely - it's gossamer thin. Very easy to occasionally misjudge, even with years of experience. We can't always get it right, and nobody can expect us to do more than our reasonable best. Perfectly so. Thank you.

    Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film

    Eye of the beholder. I've said before, the film itself is as Fortean an artefact as what it purports to show. In a meta-sense it bears comparison to the Turin Shroud in that the cloth and image can stand apart from what it's alleged to be an image of. That a minute of cinefilm can still provoke...

    Quitters & Shape-Shifters: Last Words & Reincarnations

    The shittiness has become endemic in the wider Fortean community - have a look at many Fort-related groups and you'll see similar arsiness. It's tempting to speculate that wider sociological issues eventually find an out on forums such as this, and the sociology of the two main nations of which...

    Missing In Action: Posters Who Have Wandered Off

    It's a different animal these days, in fairness. The odd spat aside, it's a lot less combative (touch wood), and I think it's genuinely starting to regain the vibe it had a few years ago, which is great. We have a lot more latitude now than we did when the custard-spined legal execs were...

    Welcome Nancy. If I may - your experience is intriguing, and the fact that it appears ongoing is quite rare in first-person reports for us so thank you for sharing it. Can I ask, though, if you would mind using some punctuation? At the moment it's a massive wall of text which makes it quite...

    Hornby / Meccano

    I had Meccano, and Scalextrixksxix. The former was a composite of about forty different sets, much of which I inherited from people who'd theoretically outgrown it, and the latter was all 1970s F1, so motorised fag packets in the main. I had a McClaren in James Hunt colours, and my brother a...

    Don't forget I was having discussions with him, both openly and privately, for years so it was more down to him and me than anyone else. Ryn was a mod with me for a couple of years, but even that experience didn't alter his fundamental determination to do things entirely his way. Ultimately...

    I think that's the conclusion most of us have drawn. I still don't know if it's real or not, despite all of the research I've undertaken - I must have seen it at least 300 times now. Those who know for sure are thin on the ground these days.

    Solution - we merge it with the earlier thread on exactly the same theme by the same person. I'll shortly merge his two personas (personae?). And then, reopen it, as Eric is banned anyway.

    Pace. Compare it with the 1998 one (or Cloverfield, come to that.) It just lumbered about. Yes, that one - this is what I mean though, the succession of monstery wallopings were ok, but that's all that was worth paying any attention to. Everything else in the film felt like a time-filling...
