now now tommy. you must hop a mile in another man's shoe before saying stuff like that.
I have, I have a shoe fetish.
Now on a serious note, have they found people that are missing that could be linked to this? I have not heard anything but a foot washing ashore.
Guys, you are out of control and someone has to put an end to it. I have read your posts enough to know you are better than this.
Now, clearly the authorities have a difficult case here and those responsible have covered their tracks pretty well. I'm sure the citizens of the affected communities will draw a line in the sand on this and come together. In times like this people have to lean on each other.
The rest of us must resist the temptation to use humor as a crutch. Be prepared to lend a hand if called upon. OK, let's get back to work.
Oh so its hands were are talking about now????? I can have a hand in this.
Oh, Loren, I feel so DIRTY now.
thanks for stepping up and giving us the swift kick we deserve, taking a stand for what's tasteful and right. You're the man- thanks. I lean on folks like you in the pages to set me right when my perspective gets unbalanced.
MAYBE IT WAS BIGFOOT....
THATS IT! I AM DONE HERE.
Apparently the feet were not severed, but rather seperated naturally (I forget the specific term) from being in the water for so long. The feet washed ashore because they were in the bouyant (sp) shoes. So theoretically they should be able to form some type of timetable based on how long it takes a human foot to seperate from the ankle once submereged. I'm betting the feet are from Tsumami victims. The authorites should be able to make a timetable and then check the currents and see if anything matches.
Aw, shoot, I don't feel badly Loren. In fact, I give this thread two toes up! Personally, I'm finding it rather enjoyable riding the wave right now... just kickin back, putting my feet up and seeing what the tide may bring.
Could bring a foot or two if you are lucky.
Another foot washed up and this time it landed in Clallam County!
"The shoe found on an Olympic Peninsula beach with the remains of a human foot inside it has been identified as an Everest brand, size 11.
The sock found inside the shoe is described as a Levi's brand tube sock.
The Clallam County sheriff's department allowed photographs of the dark, hiking-style shoe on Tuesday. It was found Friday by a woman camper on a beach about 30 miles west of Port Angeles.
Authorities are trying to determine whether the shoe and foot have any connection with a series of five shoes and feet that have washed up on British Columbia beaches in the past year.
Those shoes and feet were found along the Strait of Georgia, which separates Vancouver Island from the British Columbia mainland. That area is roughly 50 miles northeast of the site where the latest shoe was found.
DNA testing linked one of the Canadian feet to a depressed man who disappeared a year ago."
I heard... the foot clan (anyone remember ninja turtles?) strikes again.
The USA has now joined the foot race with Canada but is limping far behind....
are you foot'n kidding me?
IT'S STILL HAPPENING:
damn thats crazy! they said all the feet came off naturally to, could be bodies floatin around from an old plane crash or somethin?
Man, we've had so many feet wash up on shore here it's crazy. One of them a few years back during that whole spurt of feet was found at one our local beaches just a few minutes from here.
I wouldn't say there is no foul play, cause we don't know how those people became just bodies, but so far the feet have been detaching 'naturally'.
Plane crashes, boating accidents, bad news bears- either way I think it is sort of cool in a sense that we have this huge mystery. It adds excitement to my "work, gym, sleep" life when I read about it.
The saltwater ones seemed to be explained by the suicide deal. Now this is in a lake? Hmmm....somethings fishy.....
I am no expert but they all have shoes on ..that's why they are floating ashore intact ..and not other body parts..very nasty business! I would use a 14 wt rod and shoefly to catch em:thumb:
