Why Bigfoot Does Not Exist

I will offer a common sense approach to explain why Bigfoot does not exist. The first assumption I am forced to make when weighing the existence of Bigfoot (or Yeti), is that he must be really stupid. Even the cavemen had fire, so if bigfoot was as smart as a Neanderthal, he would have fire too. And since he is living in the Pacific Northwest, it gets really REALLY cold, so not having fire would prove him completely stupid. And if he did have fire, Bigfoot would be spotted from the air as every Bigfoot family would have a campfire every night. Stupidity argument #2 would be that even the lowest of intelligent humanoids enjoy the value of clothing. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out that if you are freezing, to cover up - especially your feet. Yet all supposed sightings of Bigfoot are of naked Bigfeet.

Ok, so we have established that Bigfoot is stupid. That being said, we can assume that he would make mistakes, and stumble into campsites by accident. He would also probably hang out on the side of the highway inspecting roadkill and occasionally become roadkill himself. With no intelligence, there is no way that Bigfoot could be so remote to retain a clandestine existence.

Also a low intelligent being would not bury (or burn) dead bodies. So therefore, if there was a viable breeding population, a dead Bigfoot body would eventually be found. You cannot use the excuse that animals would scatter the remains, because I assume the leading cause of death would be freezing to death (see paragraph 1). So a frozen body would be covered with snow and at some point would be discovered. I mean, we found that little missing link guy and he had been around intact for thousands of years.

The only concession I will make is that he could be an alien and not spend much time on the surface at all. After all, the theory is that aliens manipulated our DNA to create Homo-Sapiens, well Bigfeet could be the rebellious hippie alien proto-types that just come the surface to land in the middle of nowhere to grunt.

A Website Compliments Any Business Venture

It used to be a few years ago, that the cost of hosing a website put it out of the reach of the average person. The only people that could afford a website, were people that were already successful in their business. Also the difficulty in designing a web page made it frustrating for the beginner. Well times have really changed in the 8 years I have been in the free website business.

You can now purchase a domain name and web hosting at Go-Daddy for under $60 for the entire year! So now people like you and me can get their website going at the launch of a business venture to enhance the probability of success. My sister, for example recently became a Zija distributor (health, diet and fitness supplements), and within a day or two of her launching her business, she can have a professional website up and running that can be viewed from anywhere in the planet 24 hours a day!

There are no other forms of advertising that are as versatile and far reaching as a website for less than $60! Most web hosts are now also catering to beginners and have web page designing programs that are easy to use and turn out professional looking web pages. So no more paying a web designer $2000, and a web host another $1000. There really is no longer an excuse, check out Go-Daddy now!

Domain Names And Web Hosting

We get emails from a lot of people that are contemplating building or hosting their own website and are confused about web hosting and domain names. I will try to help clear up that confusion in this article.

When you purchase a domain name, you are securing just the name used to point to your website; there are no additional features. A domain name from Go-Daddy is around $8.95 a year (depending if you want .com, .org, .net or many of the other new extensions) and usually can be used with both free and paid hosting. Domain nameservers are used to "point" your domain name to your hosting account. Nameservers are found within your domain name administration account DNS settings, and normally if you purchase your domain name and web hosting at the same place, (Go-Daddy for example) you do not have to make any changes to your nameservers. Your domain name will automatically point to your hosted website. You only need to change your nameservers in your domain name account if your actual hosting account is with a different company, such as a free web hosting account. The new nameservers will be provided by your web host. Changes may take around 24 hours to take affect.

Free web hosting is generally supported by a banner ad or text link somewhere on your website pages. If you choose not to purchase a domain name, you are provided with a free sub-domain name. It will usually be like and is considered a 2nd level domain name. Sub-domains are not favored as highly by search engines and you have no control over the name if the free web hosting company goes out of business. You also cannot move your sub-domain to a different web host. Paid web hosting will remove ads and links, increase your bandwidth and web traffic limits and usually entitles you to a variety of other features.

Paid web hosting may be bought in 3 month increments or by the year - the more you buy at a time the more you save. You can view recommended hosting plans HERE. Often people use domain names and professional (paid) hosting together, and this is where it gets confusing. They are two separate services that compliment each other, but don't necessarily need each other to work. Renewing your hosting does not renew a domain name and vice versa. The two don't always expire at the same time either. It is important to note the expiry date for both of these features to make sure they are renewed on time. Forgetting to renew a domain name can result in losing that domain name forever. Make sure to pay attention to your email reminders, such as, domain expiry notifications.

I hope these helps clear things up for everyone. Happy site building!

Tom Jones and Muammar Gaddifi

Is it just me, or does Muammar Gadaffi look like Tom Jones on a bender?

You Should Feel A Lot Safer Now

I was surfing the internet looking for my dirt cheap internet deals when I stumbled across something I find a bit disturbing. It is a knife disguised as a pen. It is technically described as "Survival Defensive Tactical Hidden Knife Ball Pen" and is available for $4.00. The link for this item is, or if you don't like the serrated edge, you can get a plain edge for $6.40 HERE, but I would hope the items would be taken down and no longer be available for sale. If the links no longer work, I have done my job.

Don't get me wrong, I am not against knives, guns or weapons of any type when used in a responsible manner, but a knife is a knife is a knife. There is no need to disguise it as something else, especially a common ball point pen. In today's era of fear of air travel and invasive searches, why do we need to add items that are just going to make the system even worse. I am sure it is not made in the USA, so maybe that is the plan?

I had planned a longer post on how I reported this knife to Homeland Security, but their emails have a tagline that say disclosing their content is strictly prohibited. So if you want to report the knife yourself, you can go to and choose "Security Issues".

NOTE: I find it kind of ironic that my Google ads are now going to display ads for knives...
