I've had a look around a number of forums, and it seems that talk about Bigfoot, UFOs, Leatherface, etc. is a good way to get flamed/banned. Is talk about that sort of stuff acceptable here? I tried to look for a topic regarding it, but then I saw the 206 pages of General Discussion... well, I'm not gonna go slogging through all of that. I know about the search function as well, but that only looks through posts, not topic titles as far as I know. And the amount of discussion in unrelated topics really screws up the search. So am I okay making a post about the myths so people can discuss it?
Bigfoot - Might be real, but there's a lot of fake photos running around the net.
Leatherface - Dunno, some YouTube vids are convincing (I'm thinking of a six-minute one shot on a rainy night right now; still haven't made up my mind about it. The guy in it even says stuff like "Hey, Piggsy!")
UFOs - Definitely possible, there's a lot of references in the game, and I wouldn't find it unusual for Rockstar to include something like this.
Ghost Cars - I've encountered one rolling down the hill near the two 'horseshoes' but have never encountered one following me.
Shark - The files are present, but man-eating? I'm not sure.
Loch Ness Monster - I find this one a bit stupid. The lake he's supposed to reside in is way too small for a Loch Ness Monster.
Telephone Booth In The Desert - I'm being pulled both ways on this one. I can't decide. Again, it wouldn't be beyone Rockstar.
Osama Bin Laden's Desert Bunker - God, someone was bored. No comment.
Serial Killer - Could be true, a lot of convincing photos exist.
Zombie - Heard a bit about this one, that it was that wierd-ass hillbilly guy in the country with no shirt chewing on a piece of grass. Could be a reference, not that he actually does anything to you.
Omega Zombie - Huh? What's this?
Pilotable Submarine - I know there is a submarine (the 'U.S.S Numnutz'), but have never seen anyone piloting it. Not that I've looked through YouTube for a relevant vid, though.
