Did Leif Erikson Discover Bigfoot During His Travels?

We know that the vikings were explorers, and that they even visited North America for a while. One of the most famous of the viking explorers was Leif Erikson. It is rumored that Erikson also encountered bigfoot creatures during his exploration, but is it true? takes a look:

I stumbled across a very interesting and provocative article the other day that I wanted to share with you. I will be quoting from it extensively throughout this post. The article, found on the Skeptical Humanities website, is called For the Love of Yeti, Bigfooters, Read a Primary Source!

The author is Eve Siebert. Who is she? A graduate of Saint Louis University who holds a Ph.D. in English Literature. Her specialty is Old and Middle English literature, but she also has “secondary concentrations” in Old Norse and Shakespeare. The specialty in Old Norse literature is the key component for today’s analysis.

What Passes for Canon

How many times have we read about the earliest sighting of Bigfoot attributed to Leif Erikson during his historic voyage to the New World? You don’t see it a lot, but it’s out there often enough and has become part of the canon of Bigfoot lore.

    2. Canadian researchers have confirmed that internet trolls are archetypal Machiavellian sadists. In a survey conducted by the group of psychologists, people who partake in so-called trolling online showed signs of sadism, psychopathy, and were Machiavellian in their manipulation of others and their disregard for morality. The researchers defined online trolling as “the practice of behaving in a deceptive, destructive, or disruptive manner in a social setting on the Internet” for no purpose other than their pleasure. To achieve the results, the team asked internet users about subjects including how much time they spend online, and whether they comment on websites such as YouTube. They were also given tests that measured their responses against psychology's "Dark Tetrad": narcissism, Machiavellianism, psychopathy and a sadistic personality. Questions also surrounded sadistic statements including: ''I enjoy physically hurting people,” “I enjoy making jokes at the expense of others” and “I enjoy playing the villain in games and torturing other characters.”
      “It was sadism, however, that had the most robust associations with trolling of any of the personality measures,” said psychologists from the University of Manitoba, University of Winnipeg and University of British Columbia in an article published in the ‘Personality and Individual Differences’ journal. To be absolutely clear as to what Sadism is, this may refer to;
      1. Sadomasochism, consenting partners willingly engaging in aspects of pain or humiliation for sexual pleasure. Also, BDSM.
      2. Sadistic personality disorder, obsolete term proposed for individuals who derive pleasure from the suffering of others. Also Antisocial personality disorder.
      3. Sexual sadism disorder, medical/psychological condition for sexual arousal from inflicting pain/humiliation on unwilling, non-consenting victims.

    3. Given the inhumanity of his crimes, Adolf Hitler has early on been linked with “psychopathy”, a severe personality disorder, whose main symptoms are a great or complete lack of empathy, social responsibility and conscience. The biologically determined concept still plays a role in the psychiatric forensic science, but in the modern medical classification systems, it is no longer found. Today, corresponding clinical pictures are mostly classified as signs of an antisocial personality disorder. However, the symptomatology is rare, and unlike in popular discourse where the classification of Hitler as a “psychopath” is commonplace, psychiatrists have only occasionally endeavored to associate him with psychopathy or antisocial personality disorder. Two wartime reports by the Allies attempted to analyze Hitler psychologically. Walter C. Langer's 1943 report for the American Office of Strategic Services (OSS) described Hitler as having repressed homosexual tendencies and opined that he was an impotent coprophile. Psychologist Henry Murray wrote a separate psychoanalytical report for the OSS in 1943 that drew similar conclusions. Otto Strasser, one of Hitler's opponents in the Nazi Party, also told his post-war interrogators a similar story. More recently, Hitler’s alleged coprophilia was alluded to in a 2011 biography of Hitler’s lover Eva Braun by Heike B. Görtemaker. However, other recent books on Hitler have been more explicit. For instance, Greg Hallet in his chapter ‘Hitler’s Sexuality’ (from his 2008 book ‘Hitler was a British Agent’) wrote;
      “Hitler’s close boyhood friend from Linz, August Kubizek, wrote Adolf Hitler, Mein Jugendfreund (My Youth Friend), ‘Adolf did not engage in love affairs or flirtations. He always rejected the coquettish advances of girls or women. Women and girls took an interest in him but he always evaded their endeavours’… During deconstruction, it is customary that the person is sexually abused in the manner which is most embarrassing to that person. In Hitler’s case, he was sodomised, creating a submissive distant respect for homosexuals like his bodyguards and some of his highest-placed leaders. His natural bent was developed into coprophilia... With each deconstruction an embarrassing addiction is developed and filmed. With Hitler it was sadomasochism, coprophilia and homosexuality. That is, he liked to be verbally abused and slapped around, to have his head urinated on, his chest defecated on, and to have sex with men”.

      It can therefore be deduced that in line with turd-boy's obsessive internet behaviour, gross fascination with faeces, as well as a deep requirement to regularly express sexually explicit toilet humour (all of which is bordering on a very obvious level of perversion of course), that he has a considerable amount in common with the psychological make up of people like Adolf Hitler. Thank god he's too stupid & lazy to have a deeply driven life's ambition to get into politics.

      Just saying.

    4. The trolls are the JREF/ISF footers. A bunch of mentally ill gay and bisexual lonely, Bigfoot obsessed creeps.

    5. Captain cut n paste eats turds.

    6. Giant meltdown for Itkomi. Look out he's gonna blow. After he munches on some turds first.

    7. Joe just had a colossal meltdown. He must not be sippin on his "Joerg Juice" tonight.

    8. Sometimes when Joe is alone, he thinks about what it would be like if Dr. Squatch decided to get drunk on his "Joerg Juice".

    9. Iktomi was FIRST TO COIN THE PHRASE """TURD"" (turd this ,turd that, on an on for months on end)
      as per She just does not GET IT !!!

  2. You don't need to read the article. I can sum it up for you.

    No, the Vikings did not encounter bigfoot. The stories that Vikings encountered bigfoot is made up wishful thinking BS

    1. Keep praying, loser. These accounts represent thousands of years. Go to the source, stop denying it and if it scares you, do something else.

    2. Uh Iktomi, did you even bother to read the article? That's what the article said (okay, admittedly, the "BS" was added by me for emphasis, but that was the idea in the article).

    3. It's called reiteration, as well as significantly adding to your burden. Calling BS doesn't begin to shift it, I'm afraid.

    4. you mean hundreds of years of made up folklore. AHH AHAHAHAHA

    5. No... I meant thousands. When folklore transmits into forensic evidence, don't you think you look a bit stupid?
