Bigfoot Gait. Yup, taking a look at the “big guy”. The famous Patterson video.
Man or Ape? That is the question ! Lets see what can be noticed :
- protracted head, shoulders and a forward and downward drop of the anterior rib cage through probable weak upper abdominals
- internally rotated upper limbs with excessive forward arm swing (overswing, likely pulling/flexing too much from the pectorals to drive arm swing as opposed to driving normal pendular arm swing from triceps extension)
- no hip extension during gait, (see #2 above. Without adequate triceps use/posterior arm swing the degree of hip extension/gluteal use cannot be optimized.
These are clearly attributes of a animal that has moved from quadipedal gait to bipedal before they have earned the postural right to do so.
Just like any modern man, as evidenced by clear observance of said gait in the local mall or airport, most of modern man has difficulties with the degree of motor coordination and postural control necessary to walk with clean upright biomechanics. Most modern gait exhibits the pathologies we discussed above. So, this must be a man in an ape suit then, right ? The only problem is that this film was from 1967 ! Clearly we know that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were not doing their thing at that time, and people were not driving that much nor sitting in board rooms as much as they do now. So the question remains, if this is a man how did he get so posturally imploded ? Unless of course, he was trying to walk like a bipedal monkey. The only problem there is that ape contra-body movements (symmetrical fluid opposite arm-leg swing) are not this clean even though this is pretty poor gait for a human. So, either this is a non-computer age man trying to walk like an experienced ape, or, this is bigfoot.
There you go, we successfully made no progress in our forensic analysis to help in the mystery of bigfoot. Then again, no one has. National Geographic has a something else to say……. read on.
From the article…..”It’s been the subject of campfire stories for decades. A camera-elusive, grooming-challenged, bipedal ape-man that roams the mountain regions of North America. Some call it Sasquatch. Others know it as Bigfoot.
Chilcutt says one footprint found in 1987 in Walla Walla in Washington State has convinced him that Bigfoot is real.
“The ridge flow pattern and the texture was completely different from anything I’ve ever seen,” he said. “It certainly wasn’t human, and of no known primate that I’ve examined. The print ridges flowed lengthwise along the foot, unlike human prints, which flow across. The texture of the ridges was about twice the thickness of a human, which indicated that this animal has a real thick skin.”
Renowned chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall last year surprised an interviewer from National Public Radio when she said she was sure that large, undiscovered primates, such as the Yeti or Sasquatch, exist.”

Shawn and Ivo……. when not making crop circles we are just two guys in ape suits……. walking the night forests, keeping folks believing…..
