After viewing this video, you are probably thinking 1 of 3 questions:
1. Who pulled the plug on the swamp?
2. How did I feel after I got sucked down into the swamp vortex and spit out on the downstream side of the culvert?
3. When was the last time’s the swamps have been this full with water?
If you were thinking along the lines of #3, then congratulations: you got the right question!
The secret to hydrology is in posing the right questions. There’s nothing more defeating in life than wasting ones time trying to find the right answer to the wrong question.
Case in point is this recent Bigfoot debacle.
The search continues only because the answer (a real live Bigfoot) doesn’t exist. Weirdly, it’s extraordinarily difficult to prove something doesn’t exist if in fact it doesn’t exist, because you can’t find it to prove it doesn’t exist. Anyhow, you know what I mean. That search will go on forever.
I’m just glad the search teams are finding some rubber-lined Bigfoot costumes along the way. That keeps them hot on the trail.
And truth be told, I never get tired watching the 1967 Patterson-Gimlin video clip of a fleeing Bigfoot in California Redwood country. Talk about captivating (big) footage.
Interestingly, that films has been extensively used to both refute and authenticate the Bigfoot myth. Suffice it to say that there are some questions that no amount of evidence will lay to rest.
But as for the correct answer to the correct question, #3:
Let me crunch the numbers on that one. I’ll have an answer to that in a few days.
