Did you know that we’ve been in the middle of a Loch Ness Monster sighting drought? Last year marked the first time in almost 90 years that Nessie hadn’t been spotted for an entire year. In fact, there hadn’t been any ‘confirmed sightings’ of the elusive cryptid for 18 months, leading some veteran spotters to voice concern that perhaps the famous monster had finally given up the ghost.
But wait! Something awesome just happened: Two different people, both using Apple Maps, captured screenshots of something measuring approximately 100ft long, with what appear to be two large flippers, powering along just under the surface of the loch. Experts from the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club have been studying the images and Gary Campbell, club president, reports that they’ve been steadily ruling out alternative explanations, leaving it increasingly likely that these images are brand new ‘confirmed sightings’:
‘We’ve been looking at it for a long time trying to work out exactly what it is. It looks like a boat wake, but the boat is missing. You can see some boats moored at the shore, but there isn’t one here. We’ve shown it to boat experts and they don’t know what it is. Whatever this is, it is under the water and heading south, so unless there have been secret submarine trials going on in the loch, the size of the object would make it likely to be Nessie.’
‘Now that we have spies in the skies above Loch Ness, maybe we will get more sightings which will whet the appetite of more down to earth Nessie hunters to come north. Furthermore, the use of satellite technology means that if Nessie is just swimming below the surface like in this case, we can still pick her up.’

I’m usually a “pics or it didn’t happen” kind of person, especially when it comes to things like this
But with SO MUCH of the world’s water undiscovered, and so many possibilities of what lives in it, as well as my genuine fear of large sea creatures, I can’t help but partially want this to be true.

This is actually very very important to know.
Eating 10 prunes as a part of breakfast was a really bad idea.
This like perfectly illustrates how my
Mom was her entire life. I miss sitting in the kitchen with her and my friends, them telling her about their weird sexual escapades and all of their problems. I try to push thoughts of her out of my head sometimes because it’s still not real that she’s gone. I feel like I’ll never believe it or like actually deal with it.
