    Link: Unknown Creature Found by Soldiers in East Russia - It`s not a fish and it`s not a croc or gator. It has a skin with hair or fur. This could be anything. Ever seen Tremors?

    excellent job "stealing" half of your articles from the digg homepage. but i guess its no big deal since the artices arent private and personally written and you are keeping the newfags here and not killing digg faster than it already is dying...

    "this went around the internet about 2 years ago … its a decomposed beluga or killer whale (can’t remember which) … check the skeletal structure against wikipedia …

    some stories/articles refuse to die ….

    the only things i could find on this "creature" was the given site, digg (thrash16 claims the given site stole this fromdigg) and a news site which took it from the given site.

    then again you`ve got sites like these
    alien found in russia

    russian fishermen find alien.....then eat it.

    doesn`t sound verry reliable

    trash16 is just angry because he has absolutely no life and instead of going to this website to be updated on funny things or interesting articles depends on it for any source of entertainment at all.

    Sucks you`ve already seen this because you go to so many sites in order to fully take up your entire day, but we don`t care.

    Its not shopped. Its not a fake. Rigamortise isn`t an issue when its muscles have mostly rotted away.

    Its a whale. A small whale. You see in that one pic how they`re standing on a beach? Jeeze, people.

    I don`t care whether it`s a decomposed whale, or an actual freaky creature, I wouldn`t go near that thing with someone elses ten foot barge pole, even looking at the pictures I was convinced it was suddenly going to jump up and attack them. I`m quite prone to sudden flights of fancy like that, so you could be quite sure I`d be at least ten feet away and preferably behind something before taking photos. That said, it looks rather awesome, puts me in mind of one of the Egyptian gods, could be Sek.

    I don`t bother to read comments because they are usually full of things irrelevant to the actual article itself." irrelevant, like that u mean.

    Read the comments under the pics, its an orca/killer whale

    Uhh rigamortis is the stiffening of the muscles not the bones so it would be easy to move the jaw bone..it looks like a whale or something..I don`t think this is anything special

    So you keep coming here.. why? If you don`t like how the site is being run, you should leave.

    "thrash16, wow, someone got their period today."

    Wow, hun...I can`t believe you resorted to that.

    =(

    I`m usually with you when you get on people, fancyclad...but women, period, and PMS...it`s something women can not fully control...and it sucks! (for both parties...)

    And if she is in the 13-17 range, she probably has just started getting her period, and does not have full control of her emotions yet, and she may not have a regular cycle...which could also cause hormonal imbalances...

    And yea, regarding the article, this was just a Chupacabra. LOL! It traveled all the way from Puerto Rico to Russia to liven things up a little!

    Then it died. =(

    i don`t know i thought it was weird and kind of funny.
