I know some of you will claim my mind was blown for some time now
but really - this time, it has blown to new heights which I cannot begin to fathom.
Where do I begin? Oh yes, I was bored and decided to revisit an episode of River Monsters. My TV guide said River Monsters was showing at 8:00 PM Pacific time. I said PERFECT. Let's get it on.
So I turned to Animal Planet at exactly 8:01 PM. I began watching. Immediately, I realized something was not right. This show I'm watching is definitely not River Monsters but I kept watching because the opening scene caught my curiosity.
I don't know if what I just watched was propaganda or it was indeed real. Never have I encountered something on TV that was as profound as what I just watched.
I just watched a documentary, part theoretical and part scientific, on the discovery of mermaids. Yes, I said mermaids.
In 2004 or 2007, a mermaid was washed away to shore on the beach of Washington state along with many other whales. The U.S. Navy immediately surrounded the beach and took a body away. However, there were two boys there who saw and video taped the BODY before the Navy could close the beach. The Navy convinced the boys it was a manatee but little did they know - the boys had already video taped the body.
A few years later, more whales washed up to shore in Africa. And this time, a team of scientists was able to get there in a timely manner and uncovered a strange corpse. The corpse had humanoid and aquatic mammal features.
I'm not going to retell the whole show. At the end of the show, they finally revealed the entire segment of the video - taped by the two boys from Washington.
I don't know what to believe. Like I said, my mind is blown if it wasn't blown already.
