Pennsylvania Has Become a Hotbed of Bigfoot Sightings




Pennsylvania ranked No. 3 when the Travel Channel and the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization crunched the numbers in search of the best places to see Bigfoot.

Washington topped the list with 2,032 reported sightings, followed by California, with 1,697, and then Pennsylvania, with 1,340.

To come up with a list of “Eight Best Places to Catch a Glimpse of Bigfoot” researchers sorted through never-before-released tracking data from BFRO’s Follow-up Log and Tracking System, which is billed as the world’s ultimate sasquatch database of compiled sightings and testimonies. They analyzed 23,000 sightings reported from across the country.

They concluded, “For the absolute best chance of spotting Bigfoot, head to Washington state. With a whopping 2,032 sightings and counting, this is the world’s most active region”

Some Fish Eggs Can Hatch After Being Pooped Out by Swans


Swan-TSpider NLT.jpg


A question that’s often baffled scientists is how certain species of fish can sometimes appear—and even proliferate—in isolated bodies of water not previously known to harbor them. A new study has demonstrated that the most unlikely explanation might actually be correct: It’s possible they fell from the sky.

Specifically, from the rear end of a swan.

A study in the journal Ecology by researchers at the Unisinos University in Brazil found that killifish eggs can, in rare cases, survive being swallowed by swans, enduring a journey through their digestive tracts before being excreted out. This kind of fecal public transportation system explains how killifish can pop up in ponds, flood waters, and other water bodies that would seem an unlikely place for species to suddenly appear.

How to Choose the Right Beer Glass

Beer glass.jpg

Is there really such a thing as the right beer glass? It’s a puzzle that might intimidate newer beer lovers, but ask any beer expert, and they’ll overwhelmingly answer “Yes.”

There are a few ways choosing the right beer glass enhances your experience. Certain glass shapes can accentuate different parts of your beer, like the nose (a.k.a. how a beer smells). If you’re drinking a higher-alcohol beer, you’ll likely receive a smaller glass than if you were drinking a sessionable beer.
