    A friend of mine just texted me to say he's going to set up his own YouTube channel called 'VloggerWorldTV'. He said It's going to be a channel where he travels all across the globe hunting down the answers to various myths and legends, and the first one is going to be on Nessie.

    I do find this quite interesting, because I've always been fascinated by the myth of the Loch Ness Monster. Should be great to see what he does...

    Sorry, I read that as I want to travel and get others to fund me.

    So it doesn't exist yet and he hasn't done any of these things. What are his qualifications or experience ... archaeology, biology, paleontology, published writer/journalist (not self-published blogger), etc ???

    Hopefully not a social media "influencer"!

    I'd put my money on the OP being responsible for this upcoming channel based on his forum name which indicated he has already had a Dr Who channel at some stage. This thread screams of self promotion.

    I think Mods should close down dubious threads sharpish. They only antagonise genuine avf members.

    tbf, the OP's a regular poster in a Dr Who thread and has never mentioned nor promoted such a channel, though like you I did suspect that 'friend' might really be him based on the "TV".

    I'm not sure of his plans. All he has told me is that he's setting up this channel and the first episode is on Nessie. He's already paid for travel and holiday accommodation, and filming with his phone, so he isn't looking for funding.

    So he is going armed with a phone, what more does one need to prove or not the existence of the Loch Ness monster?

    Sorry but I had a seriousgeneectomy that affects me with these topics. :)
    Armed with a phone? Seriously? This has to be a wind up.
    What definition, FOV DoF do you get with a phone looking out over a lake in whatever conditions there are? I use a phone camera for the odd snap but basically a load of rubbish (verifiably so) compared to the RAW off my DSLR with a 400mm or 11mm when you are chasing detail. And there is far better kit than mine out there.

    Come on, vlogger, influencer whatever. We called it scrounging in my day. He is after hits on the channel to get some loot. I did money earning the old fashioned way with job, I can see the attraction though, the wibble is strong on the internet and youtube must be raking it in from the gullible. To be fair though I might have tried it when I were a nipper but defiantly with the intention of bigging it up knowing there is no nessie.

    But if you are going armed with anything for nessie, then I would suggest depth charges and a whaling harpoon and couple of mates to pull you out the water when Nessie drags you in.

    Or will it be "that ripple, what caused it"..... "we can see no evidence of what started the ripple so it must be Nessie"

    ;)

    Snigger, what gave it away. One program some years ago got the boat with the posh kit and did a survey. One immediate issue for any large creature would be the lack of food as reported by some familiar with what large marine animals need, also the composition of the lake bed being a bit stifling. Anything large getting in there would have a hard time surviving, any throw back to the dinosaurs is a bit of a stretch given the lack of food in the quantities required to keep something reputedly that size alive for millions of years

    e.g a Dolphin eats 20kg or so of fish a day (internet look up). Scale that up for a larger animal then add in a breeding population and you soon starve.

    Biggest overall issue is the human observer. There are numerous sightings of big cats for example. The ones evidenced usually turn out to be domestic moggies. One farmer in Wales was adamant (not prince charming) that his dog was killed in front of him by a big cat. It was all over the local news, armed police everywhere (rifles not pistols). Forensic tests came back saying it was a badger. Humans can make for poor recording devices even when it was bleedin obvious.

    I like the hoaxes though, they are fun.

    He is planning to talk to locals who may have their own Nessie theories, so maybe the elephant thing will crop up.

    Why not, he could take a picture of a tree trunk in the water and photo shop it and no one would be any the wiser! Would they?
