Transcript of Nessie
There have been records of strange beasts there for over 1500 years.
In the 1900’s numerous photos of unknown animals surfaced.
High tech expeditions were launched to find the monster using sonar and submarines.
Today opinion is divided between believers and skeptics.
A long history of reports and sighting going back to 565 AD.
Some sonar and underwater photos.
And perhaps the desire for a mystery to be true.
“Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.” -Rumsfeld Skeptics:

No body. No remains. No proof.
