Mermaid Body Found on Beach in Minnesota

Postby apextvfanclub » Thu Oct 05, 2017 4:46 am

https://youtu.be/7VtpzgJ85Ik

I would love to hear what you guys think about this video! I honestly think it's kind of convincing. Why would someone take so much time to fake something like this?

Here's the story:

This footage was filmed by a man on a beach in Minnesota. The lake in which this video was filmed at remains unknown as well as the man's identity. He wishes to only go by Macky. We at Paranormal Elite were sent the footage from Macky, who took it on his cell phone camera. He claims that the park was first cleared, and then big vehicles came in with people wearing yellow hazmat suits. Macky stayed behind and filmed despite the park's efforts to get everyone out.

Macky is actually from Australia but was visiting relatives in Minnesota when they decided to go to a local park.

Regarding the footage. You can first see a strange green tail floating in the water. Two people wearing hazmat suits and carrying a stretcher pull the mysterious creature out of the water. The creature seen bears striking resemblance to the mermaids depicted in fictional stories.

Macky believes the footage does show proof of mermaids. He says that in Australia, too, he has heard stories of of humanoid creatures with fish-like tails. He was surprised to see something like this being pulled out of a freshwater lake.

It remains a mystery whether or not mermaids do inhabit lakes in Minnesota. After all, what happens when the lakes freeze in the winter?

We at Paranormal Elite urge everyone to keep an open mind and come to a conclusion yourself. If this is in fact a fake, the question arises as to why anyone would go to such lengths to hoax a video like this. What do you think? Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Usually, retrieval of a paranormal biological specimen is a 4 man team job, plus invisible Black Hawk helicopter overwatch.
I looks like the Trump administration is cutting back on the X-files budget.

2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

Pity they didn't have a taller, stronger person to wear the second yellow costume. It might've looked more military without the awkward bumbling and fumbling about.

How the {!#%@} does anyone confuse a dead Sasquatch for a mermaid. Seriously, Big Myth isn't doing a very good job with this cover-up.

BTW, bigfeets are gay liberal vegans.

make sure you get one with a Fish Head, not the other kind - they just talk and are useless in bed.

That video is pure silliness. The hazmat people look straight at the guy making the video and don't seem to notice. Yeah. Makes perfect sense.

I've asked this before and I'll ask again. Why would you want people to come to their own conclusions? Aren't you trying to convince people of something? And you don't care if people believe you? So, if you don't care, then why are you even posting this? If I found proof of X, and I tell people about it, I definitely don't want people to come to their own conclusions. I want them to come to my conclusion and believe what I'm saying.

Regarding hoaxes, people go to great lengths to make hoaxes. Crop circles, for example. Faked UFO footage. Etcetera.
Listening twice as much as you speak is a sign of wisdom.

Technically, if you only cooked the bottom half and threw away the top of the mermaid, I can't see why you couldn't serve a couple up for dinner guests. :D

Aww geez, it just gets worse all the time. I mean, I saw some nice shoots of some pretty rocks, and two blokes in yellow stuffing around with something that apparently had a fish tail end, as in fish tails. Nowhere does it show the rest of the "Mermaid". Like, did it have boobs? Where the boobs covered, as in a bra? You have got to be joking!!

Aw geez, come on GS, we all know that mermaids are of the female gender. I'[ve seen many of them in movies and they all have big boobies. :D

Hey, c'mon, it took them 2 years between posts spamming their YouTube channel. Paranormal events are scarcer than ever these days.

It's a hoax.

• If it were an unknown life form, the two people fishing it out of the water would require Level A hazmat suits to prevent bio-contamination, and neither has a breathing apparatus on his face. It looks like they're wearing yellow rain gear.
Image

• If it were a human corpse—some misguided soul who believed she was "mermaid kin," donned a silicone fish tail, and attempted to swim the lake—there would be a physician present to examine the body for signs of foul play at the place where the body was found...in case it was a crime scene.

• The two figures looked directly at the person filming the scene, yet appeared not to see him, even after he left cover and stood in the middle of the beach in full view.
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

That first picture reminds me of a Shel Silverstein poem "The Mermaid", excelently covered by one of my favorite bands, Great Big Sea.

Shel Silverstein wrote:When I was a lad in a fishing town
Me old man said to me
You can spend your life, your jolly life
Just sailing on the sea
You can search the world for pretty girls
Til your eyes are weak and dim
But don't go searching for a mermaid, son
If you don't know how to swim

'Cause her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her face it was a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
But I only like the upper part
I did not like the tail

I signed onto a sailing ship
My very first day at sea
I seen a mermaid in the waves
A-reaching out to me
Come live with me in the sea, said she
Down on the ocean floor
And I'll show you a million wondrous things
You've never seen before

So over I jumped and she pulled me down
Down to her seaweed bed
And a pillow made of a tortoise shell
She placed beneath my head
She fed me shrimp and caviar
Upon a silver dish
From her head to her waist
It was just my taste
But the rest of her was a fish

'Cause her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her face it was a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
But I only like the upper part
I did not like the tail

But then one day she swam away
So I sang to the clams and the whales
Oh, how I miss her seaweed hair
And the silver shine of her scales
But then her sister, she swam by
Set my heart awhirl
'Cause her upper part was an ugly fish
But her bottom part was a girl

Yes her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her legs they are a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
And I don't give a damn about the upper part
'Cause that's how I get my tail
