Mysteries I can’t be bothered to Solve.

I woke up this morning thinking about the Loch Ness monster. I don’t….
I also woke up with a massive head and body aches like someone was beating me up in my sleep.
I feel like we should have a brainstorming session of who would have done that, but I think it wouldn’t be as exciting since I am the only one writing this.

Now, unfortunately I am having a week where I literally have no money whatsoever. So I couldn’t purchase some sort of caffeinated beverage to ease some of what I am feeling.  And I have already gotten a paper cut.
SO! I am hoping that blogging can liven me up a  little bit. It’s a long shot, but I dare to dream.

Anyways, I went through a Lifetime phase once. It was when I was like 16 and all I would watch was Golden Girls and Lifetime movies about what to do if your son is addicted to porn.
It built character and it made my sister uncomfortable.
But the one show that she did enjoy watching with me was called “Unsolved Mysteries”, which I only thought was made in the late 80s and early 90s, but Wikipedia says no.
Apparently I only ever watched reruns from the late 80s and early 90s. And I am okay with it.
They had this excellent host who had a Rod Sterling suspenseful voice and he would always walk up to the camera in a dark room wearing a trench coat.
Classic. I loved it.
But when they started the show back up again in 2008, they got this host who looked like the dad from every sitcom I never wanted to watch.
You’re not meant to talk about mysteries, man.

There was one other huge difference between the 80s/90s Mysteries and the revamped show. In the 80s/90s we were more concerned with the Supernatural and things like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster.
In 2008, all we care about are murders. Serial killers, disappearances and wanted men.
The problem is that shows has too low of a budget to be covering those sorts of serious topics. |
Plus, if I was murdered, I would really appreciate it if my family didn’t go on a low-budget show telling them about my murder.
I guess if I wanted to hear about real murders and things of that nature, I would watch the news.
But I don’t watch the news. I prefer to be blissfully unaware. I also sort of feel like it’s none of my business or anybody else’s.

Okay, I have mentioned aliens and the Loch Ness and things like that before. I never fully elaborated on how I feel about that and 10:08 AM on a Wednesday seems like the perfect time.
Although I won’t cover aliens, that’s too long to add at the end of this post.

Alright, when it comes to talking about things like the Loch Ness monster and El Chupacabra I would first like to mention that I do not live in a trailer home.
I have all my teeth.
Fairly high functioning. Hold a steady job.
Don’t do drugs.  Have no psychological issues.

I bring this up, because I find when Scientists and even regular people doubt that these things could possibly exist, I feel it’s a little assumptive and ridiculous.
Nature has constantly proven that it can adapt creatures over years of time to become those types of creatures.
And man has proven that they can cause certain creatures to be almost extinct where we could almost never see them.

Now, I am not saying that I believe all of these things exist. Mermaids obviously don’t exist. And the idea that Big Foot is half man and half beast probably just means someone saw a guy with a beard.
I am saying that with all the sightings of these creatures, I don’t believe that everything about them is false.
I mean, if we have sharks and sting rays that can grow up to 200+ lbs., why would it be so ridiculous to think a creature could grow that size in a lake? Especially after we proved Dinosaurs exist, I mean that one seemed a little far-fetched guys.

Okay, you know how they say that at the bottom of every lie is some form of truth?
That’s how I feel about these creatures. I think there are a lot of made up stories about them. I really do.
But I also think that it’s pretty presumptuous of people to just assume something is impossible simply because no one has been able to catch it.
I can’t catch a Tiger, doesn’t mean those don’t exist. Plus, I think there are laws against that.

The point is, I am a heavy believer in nature and evolution and I don’t think that people should discount it’s ability to create monsters.

Okay, I don’t know why this song exists, but I am in love with it. I kinda think he made the song just so he could go “AWHOOOO” a lot.
Totally valid. I support him in that decision.
The first time I heard the song, I thought I was misunderstanding him. I also kinda felt like “What the hell is going on?”
And now I listen to this song daily.

Two lyrics stand out to me the most in this song. First when he says:

Little Old Lady was Mutilated Late Last Night.
Werewolves of London Again.

I think of this every single time someone tries to tell me about a murder or something horrible that has happened.
Not in disrespect. Not that way at all, but just as I mentioned before, I do not think it’s mine or anyone else’s business.

Second, I love when he sings:

I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic’s
His hair was perfect

I mostly love that, because it sounds like something I would notice if I saw a werewolf.

I don’t really remember why this post started and how it got here.
Alright, That is all.


One thought on “Mysteries I can’t be bothered to Solve.

  1. Robert Stack should of hosted more programs. For example, you can’t tell me American Idol would not of been better with Stack surrounded by fog as the only judge.
