Almost 220 years old, but hey, who’s counting?
I had heard of the Winsted Wildman, which also happened in this general time period, but never heard about this one, so I am happy.
The Cotton Hollow Wild Man
Naugatuck, New Haven County, Connecticut – Wednesday June 19, 1898
Four Danbury Men Frightened by a Giant in the Woods
Four Danbury men discovered a gigantic wild man last week in Cotton Hollow, a section of country between High Rock Grove and Naugatuck. They were Jerry Wilson, Howard Bradley, James Durbin and George Howes and were working in that vicinity. On the night of their discovery, they had been spending the evening with friends near High Rock Grove and were returning to their stopping place through the woods, between 11 and 12 o’clock at night.
As they were trudging along a man of gigantic stature sprang up in front of them from among the bushes, and shouted out to Wilson, who was ahead: “How far is it to the next town?”
“Three Miles,” said Wilson with his hair standing on end and his eyes almost bulging from their sockets.
Without saying anything more, the giant started off on a wild run and disappeared in the woods and the darkness. All four of the men had seen him however, before he was out of sight, and they wer satisfied that he was at least twice as tall as anyone of their party, and correspondingly as large every other way. They acknowledged to having been pretty thoroughly scared by his sudden appearance.
The next morning they commenced systematic investigations. They went back to the place of their discovery and measured the foot tracks of the giant. They were 18 ½ inches long and 5 ½ inches broad. The heel alone measured 5 inches.
Then they made inquires of the people who lived in Cotton Hollow and were informed that such a man had been seen several times. He was known to be at least nine feet tall and to weigh not less than 500 pounds.
Unless the vision of these men was greatly magnified on that night and unless the people of the neighborhood told them a story to suit the occasion, they saw a character that Barnum & Bailey ought to have to exhibit to Englishmen as a specimen of American products. They are willing to swear to the truth of their statements and are sure that they saw a man who would be a giant among giants.

…the article fails to mention clothing or if the giant was hair-covered and it does not mention if the footprints were barefoot or shoed, -and as tall as he was reported to be, I’m not sure an ordinary man of giant stature would have such excellent vision as to negotiate rapid travel in the woods in the dark of night…
-the article is intriguing nonetheless…
A very good site, Bigfoot Encounters, chock full of great stuff… do visit if you dig Bigfoot!
Just what I always wanted…not. More loot goin out in the morning.
ETA 10/10: As we thought, it was a total main sewer line blockage. Totality was achieved pretty darn quickly.
Fixed! Two and a half hours and they had to break out every tool in the truck except one. This is due to the unbelievable WTH quality of the add ons to the hut over the yarn. Fortunately it was a reasonable amount less than one kilodollar.
So yay! Bravo Greenwich Drains and SDR Plumbing for that nifty piping.
BREAKING EXCLUSIVE LIVE FROM MANDALAY BAY – 3 SHOOTERS POSSIBLE

EXCLUSIVE FROM MFA NEWS CEO “SCOTT BINSACK” GAINS DIRECT LIVE ACCESS TO MANDALAY BAY RESORT AND GIVES YOU AN UPCLOSE BREAKING WALK THROUGH OF HOW THE LAS VEGAS OCTOBER 1 SHOOTINGS TOOK PLACE. A MUST SEE!!
Stephen Paddock is clearly the new Lee Harvey Oswald. The 21st Century Patsy!! “Scott Binsack” exposes possible evidence that the first rounds of deadly gun fire did not come from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay and explains his theory of what really transpired. Scott will be doing several more shows following this one to show you proof to prove his theory. Stay tuned

IMHO as a researcher and theorist for many years, this gentleman has nailed it. I do not say that lightly.
Listen to the reasoning behind what is proposed. Compare it as Binsack does to the actual events. It will become clear to you. I am as serious as a heart attack here. It simply matches the events perfectly.
This is not 9/11 looniness, this is based on cold hard observations and facts.
It is impressive that this fellow was given access to the apparently closed casino grounds as it allows the illustration of what happened in the now famous taxi cab video to be seen clearly in the light of day. Not to mention the shooting itself!
I will likely post another of this man’s videos on this topic once I watch it. This one had me riveted.
As always ATS is always a good place to learn, too, with all the in-depth fact checking nit-picking that goes on.

This is a Lau. Looks rather unlikely, to be honest.
Was bummed when this guy turned out to be a hoax because I really like it’s cool looks and nifty motion. Made well over a year ago.
…That I have ever thought, said or done has been wrong.
Inevitably the outcome of any action is the exact opposite of what was desired.
Innocents have sometimes been affected.
My mission must be completed, though and is the only thing keeping me on this side of the grass.
NEW Octopus Species: 2016 Hohonu Moana: Exploring Deep Waters
Published on Mar 3, 2016
During the first dive of the Okeanos Explorer 2016 Hohonu Moana: Exploring Deep Waters off Hawaii expedition to explore on the northeast side of Necker Island, the Deep Discoverer remotely operated vehicle encountered this octopus, which confused several of our shore based scientists who have never seen anything like it. Upon further review, this ghostlike octopod is almost certainly an undescribed species and may not belong to any yet-described genus.

I simply adore new species. It really sends a thrill up my spine.

Jellyfish: 2016 Deepwater Exploration of the Marianas
Published on Apr 25, 2016
This stunningly beautiful jelly was seen during Dive 4 of the 2016 Deepwater Exploration of the Marianas expedition on April 24, 2016, while exploring the informally named “Enigma Seamount” at a depth of ~3,700 meters. Scientists identified this hydromedusa as belonging to the genus Crossota. Note the two sets of tentacles — short and long. At the beginning of the video, you’ll see that the long tentacles are even and extended outward and the bell is motionless. This suggests an ambush predation mode. Within the bell, the radial canals in red are connecting points for what looks like the gonads in bright yellow.

This beautiful creature is also a NEW Species. Those yellow blobs are thought to be it’s nads!

Brutal Brittle Stars
Published on May 23, 2017
On May 5, 2017, while exploring a ridge off the southeast side of Jarvis Island, the Okeanos Explorer team observed a group of brittle stars (ophiuroids) capture and eat a squid (Abralia sp.) that was swimming by. Participating scientists were shocked to see this behavior from brittle stars, who were generally thought to be scavengers, not predators. This observation helps us understand more about the connection between the water column and the seafloor in this region.

Don’tcha love never before seen behavior?!
Awe inspiring stuff.
We have explored so little of the ocean, that it is by far more alien to our knowledge than Mars and Saturn.
DUELING BANJOS ~ Guitar & Banjo Song ~ Deliverance
Published on Mar 30, 2014
The Dueling Banjos scene from the 1972 American thriller film “Deliverance” by John Boorman.
please note the Hollywood trickery, though… from that wiki place
Use in Deliverance
In Deliverance, a scene depicts Billy Redden playing it opposite Ronny Cox, who joins him on guitar. Redden plays “Lonnie,” a mentally challenged and inbred, but extremely gifted, banjo player. Redden could not actually play the banjo and the director thought his hand movements looked unconvincing. A local musician, Mike Addis, was brought in to depict the movement of the boy’s left hand. Addis hid behind Redden, with his left arm in Redden’s shirt sleeve. Careful camera angles kept Addis out of frame and completed the illusion, though anyone familiar with bluegrass banjo playing can see that the left-hand movements do not match up with the music produced, and that the banjo being used (an open-back instrument) could never produce the music one hears (clearly from a resonator banjo). The music itself was dubbed in from the recording made by Weissberg and Mandell and was not played by the actors themselves. Two young musicians, Ron Brentano and Mike Russo, had originally been signed to play their adaptation for the film, but instead it was performed by Weissberg and Mandell.
“Dueling Banjos” was arranged and performed for the film by Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandell, and was included on its soundtrack. When Arthur “Boogie” Smith was not acknowledged as the composer by the filmmakers, he sued and eventually won, receiving songwriting credit as well as royalties.
still yummy but I am very glad that the composer got paid!
