    Well, they seemed to take it a little more seriously.

    Whatever it is, it appears to poke its head out of the water before slinking its way toward the pier. After stopping underneath it for a few seconds, it jumps back into the water quickly. The object appears to have a large tail and Wenzel commented that it appears to have a dorsal fin and a forked tail.

    A really serious case of pareidolia.

    I don't mind cryptozoologists nearly as much as most other pseudoscientists. They're at least, in general, saying how neat it would be if things like this actually existed. And they're right that a world with extant dinosaurs and yetis would actually be cooler, in a way.

    I think they're wrong 99.99% of the time in their explanations, but compared to antivaxxers, to flat earthers, to moon landing and 9/11 and Holocaust deniers, they're much nicer to deal with.

    I agree. In fact I would go a little further. Many cryptozoologists go off the deep end with their acceptance of "sighting" claims but I do think there are critters (even large mammals) that have not yet been cataloged. For instance, in the 1990s new species of deer like animals found in Vietnam were cataloged, the saola and the giant muntjac

    Those of us who know what we are doing in the programming field know that crypto is something you leave to the experts!

    Headline would have been better if it had "pier 51" in it.
