G'day, fellow RationalWikians! Don't forget to visit the Campaign page of the 2016 Board of trustees election in order to make your voice heard. Suggested activities include:

  • Endorsing select candidates (lending a hand to your loyal henchmen and/or glorious overlords!)
  • Anti-endorsing select candidates (character-assassinating your hated opponents!)
  • Providing moar goat (please wipe afterwards)
  • Just asking questions to the candidates

Your participation might help other users better direct their votes. More importantly, it'll show the world that we've yet to go full Citizendium in terms of election hype!

Yeti, sometimes called the Abominable Snowman, is a bipedal ape-like cryptid said to inhabit the Himalayas. It is in a class of semi-fictitious beasts we share our planet with, one of several that are ape-like and usually very large compared to humans. The Yeti is typical of the Himalayan region. Its brown-furred relatives are usually found in remote, inaccessible areas on most of the other continents. Some people claim that the Yeti is a descendant of Gigantopithecus. Although Gigantopithecus did probably live in the Himalayas, that still doesn't prove that the Yeti exists: it would only provide a place to put the Yeti in the evolutionary tree in the event we happened to find substantial evidence of the Yeti's existence.

Some have proposed that, in the distant past, someone in the region happened upon a largely intact Gigantopithecus skeleton. Not understanding fossilization, they mistook it for the corpse of an extant species and the legend grew from there.

Other such creatures would include the Loch Ness Monster Nessiteras rhombopterix, sasskwach saskvach (oh to hell with it), and the Great Gay Conspiracy Agenda.

Unlike aliens, they are indigenous to this planet. If they exist. If they do not exist, then . . . . . . ....... something else.

SubGenius mythology maintains that the SubGenii (or "Yetinsyn") are a cross between humans and Yeti.

Those who know better realize that the yeti is just a goat.[1]
