There have been many myths that people have handed down over the course of human history. One such myth is the Greek myth of Hades specifically, of that of Cerberus the guard dog of Hades. Cerberus was the offspring of Echidna and Typhon and was often described as having three heads, a serpent for a tail, and snakes protruding from parts of his body. Though this was not always the case, in the earliest description in Hesiod's theogony from 8th - 7th century B.C., he was described having fifty heads, while later when described by Pindar in 522- 433 B.C. he had one hundred heads.

First off, the humorous satire at what types of articles that may be found in less than reliable newspapers or websites. In BigFoot Stole My Wife, it displays the story of a man who convinced himself that bigfoot had broken into his house and took his wife away. This is a huge leap in logical, to say the least. In this story, we can find context clues that prove that this did not happen. See, the first clue we get is his gambling problems and his wife’s disdain for this habits: “In the two and a half years we were married, I often had the feeling that I would come home from the track and something would be funny. Oh, she'd say things: One of these days I'm not going to be here when you get home, things like that, things like everybody says. How stupid of me not to see them as omens” (Carlson, Rob). Not only does his wife seem to be unhappy with the narrator, but it shows the wife, Tracy, blatantly states she wants to leave him. True,

This, of course, is only a conspiracy theory (Hemming). This research paper will compare the evidence and try to disprove the conspiracy theory that Elvis Presley is still alive today.

Yeti. Sasquatch. Bigfoot. The names instantly conjure images of enigmatic apelike creatures existing at the thresholds of human experience. We imagine them as huge, hairy, and walking on two legs, a perception developed throughout generations of sightings and crystallized in 1967 by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin in their brief but historic film ( Higgins ). Bigfoot has many characteristics that make him stand out. First, there is evidence that authenticates Bigfoot existence. However, there are skeptics that has been corroborated to insure Bigfoot is a mythical creature. But, the media has a big role in proving bigfoot’s existence or mythological existence. In summary, while many people believe that Bigfoot is not real, there are many media shows and people endorsing that Bigfoot exists and they are hunting him down. Many people believe that the shows are fake and that people are just dressing in costumes.

My view on Bigfoot isn't necessarily that he exists but that i think it’s possible. A giant primate of this sort definitely could exist however unlikely it is. There have been many hoaxes and maybe even fake videos. Contrastingly there is some evidence found that supports the idea of bigfoot. Hairs have been found that do not belong to any species. Several eyewitness accounts believe they sincerely saw Bigfoot. Yes, there is evidence going against Bigfoot and for him, but my opinion doesn’t change. It’s possible that he exists, but who has the say in whether he does or doesn’t.
