Lake Monster Mania: 80 Years of Nessie

The super-awesomest quote that sadly didn't make my Yahoo piece on the 80th anniversary of the first modern Loch Ness Monster sighting: "I took my boys -- aged 9 and 13 -- on a two-week expedition. We had a wonder-filled time," says Loren Coleman, director of the International Cryptozoology Museum. "Then they both went back to school that fall in Portland, ME, and had to write a 'What I Did Last Summer' essay. 

"The oldest son's teacher called up and said, 'I believe we have a mental health problem here. He thinks he went monster-hunting.' 

"And I said, 'no, that's really what we did'."
