Synchronicity is a strange thing. Last night I was talking to Lizzy about the Cannock Chase `bigfoot`, and it was only this morning that I remembered that I had given an interview to a bloke from one of the tabloids on exactly the same subject, a day or two back. Then I was visiting my non-cfztv youtube account, which I use to paste up anything for which I do not have the copyright, in order to post a novelty song about yetis, and I found this, from some bloke called Stefan. It was posted in January 2008, in answer to this video:
(The fact that I didn't pick it up until today shows what a good boy I am and how seldom I post bootlegs)
"Jonathan Downes, suggests in this clip that the sightings of a Bigfoot type figure on the Chase could be hallucinations triggered off by electromagnetic emissions, perhaps from the BT tower. Whether or not this creature is a reality or not it is very highly unlikely that the BT Tower at Pye Green has anything to do with the reported phenomenon. The creature sighting's are mainly in the area of Hazel Slade on the Chase four miles away. The BT Tower is relaying communications line of sight (not omnidirectional) to negate the curvature of the Earth between BT Towers, using an array of dishes transmitting and receiving electromagnetic emissions in the microwave frequency band. There are BT Towers in all sorts of locations for example the centre of Birmingham, but do people report the sightings of Big Foot or an Ape like creature in the City or elsewhere in relation to BT communication towers? People could easily be misled by Jonathan Downes sweeping suggestion. There is currently no conclusive evidence that electromagnetic emissions cause hallucinations in humans. Such statements are often used by our modern day ill informed debunkers."
Now is it just me, or does that sound horribly like someone from BT spouting the party line? (If you will excuse the pun). Methinks that he doth protest too much, although as I made the above film in 2002, and a lot of water has passed under a lot of bridges since then, I am not even sure if I believe the theory any more.
