  1. Bigfoot and Yeti: Still Not Real, but There Might Be Some Weird Bears in the Himalayas

    Harry and the Hendersons is still real though, right?

    Last October a geneticist released some early results of tests done on samples of mysterious animal hair collected around the world.

    Archivist Mark Murphy said he couldn't believe his eyes when he discovered the long-ignored papers written at the end of the Eisenhower administration. "I thought I was seeing things," he said. "These documents show that finding the Yeti was a big deal in the 1950s. It goes to show the government was taking this seriously."
