Re: Sadly Mermaids Don't Exist...

NOAA is a branch of the federal government. Who benefits by keeping the existence of mermaids a secret? Right! The US government. Because if word got out, we would all go live under the sea with Darryl Hannah, and stop paying taxes.

Re: Sadly Mermaids Don't Exist...

There's still a chance the wording is "probably don't exist" ...So maybe just maybe it's a conspiracy!!!!!

Aye, it was a response to serious questions by half-wits who believe in angles, Santa Claus and God.
Let the masses believe and they won't revolt, more power to the Government.

Re: Sadly Mermaids Don't Exist...

Just another government cover up like Roswell, Area 51, etc. Truth is they are much easier to train to put mines on hostile vessels than dolphins or lure unwary pirates into shoal waters.

Re: Sadly Mermaids Don't Exist...

They don't know what there talking about... When I was a lot younger, I would sail single handled for day's without much sleep. The mermaids would alway's wake me if a ship came over the horizen. That's my story & they can't tell me other wise...Michael..

Re: Sadly Mermaids Don't Exist...

Why would they even comment on a TV program?

And shame on Discovery Channel for putting together such a stupid program.

Business is the great whore. There is no such thing as shame there. CDC at least has a sense of humor.
