The search for Ninki-Nanka

The ninki-nanka is a mysterious creature that lives in the swamps of West Africa. Witnesses are few and far between; only because they tend to die within a few weeks of seeing this monster, said to have a “horse-like face, a long body with mirror-like scales and a crest of skin on its head”.

I’m always fascinated by stories like these. The expedition’s official website looks extremely sketchy, the actual team itself looks even sketchier. It’s pretty damn obvious this whole thing is a big waste of resources but, nevertheless, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with believing in something greater than ourselves.

I don’t even remember how many hours I spent watching the Lochness webcam as a kid, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Lake monster. Like I said, I don’t think there’s any harm in believing in the superhuman; if anything it helps us keep our feet on the ground.. reasses the purpose of our existence.

  1. You’ve got to be kidding me. I do want to see the abonobababaleleb (sp) snowman though. Should tell him not to come to Bahrain, might melt.
