The Loch Ness Monster is ’caused by seismic waves’, says an Italian scientist. How very un-romantic. As if tourism in the UK needed another blow.
Tangent: A good friend of mine was up visiting Scotland a few years ago when we were both here as students. He wasn’t staying far from Loch Ness, so he decided to walk there along some nature trail. He was nearly there when suddenly he turned round a bend and came upon a couple “having intercourse.” Oh, did I mention my friend was studying in the seminary to become a priest at the time? Hee! He was so embarrassed he turned around and snuck back to the hostel without even seeing the Loch. We still kid him about it to this day. (He ended up leaving the seminary a few years later.)
