Odds and Ends in Sasquatch Arena

A movie called "Exists" coming out in late October reports its plot line as;

"A group of friends who venture into the remote Texas woods for a party weekend find themselves stalked by Bigfoot."

Another "monster" movie.

So far, "Letters From the Big Man" tops my charts. 

On a scientific front, this flower caught my interest.  The Diphylleia grayi.  Interestingly, on the health front (something I love to study), it has great components of lingnans that can help with tumor reduction, but besides that - notice the petals; they turn translucent when wet. See how they absorb colors behind them and light and moisture? 

Don't know if it can be extrapolated to that, but there are adaptive things by creatures and plants that need to survive and it might be that the translucency of Sasquatchs' hairs helps them. 

In videos, it shows that in light, Sasquatch become light - that makes them hard to see. If I were naked in the woods, my flesh would look darker tan in the shadows and in the sunlight would look a paler pinkish tone, but for a translucent hair-covered being, it might be that when the light hits translucent hairs, we only see light and do not see detail and where they enter shadow, they take it on and absorb it. If there were a chance of chlorophyll in their bodies, the right lignans as a plant like this has and adaptation might be even more noticeable in the hairs. 

There are scientific reasons for cloaking capabilities and they are adaptive.  A chameleon can blend into environments, but his relative, the gecko does not adapt his color for each place he is standing. We don't think that's odd. We shouldn't think it's odd that just because apes and humans don't seem to have translucent hairs, that one of our relatives might.

One of my favorite video analysts, ThinkerThunker, found something quite amazing with lots of probing and hard work, check this one out -
