Curiosity kills those who don't know any better...

 As for me, I guess you could say I know better, most of the time anyway...so once again my curiosity of unexplained things in this world brings to me to this post with a link to show you how bigfoot works...hehe

Yeah I know, some of you are saying to yourselves this guy is retarded to think bigfoot is real and people actually take the time to put a website up talking about him (it). Why not? is what I say, there are so many unexplained things in the world that I don't understand, who is to say this isn't just something else we, the human race as a whole, just aren't ready to understand...along with UFO's and all that stuff...?

In 1066, the Norman duke, William the Conqueror conquered England, where the Norman French name Jehan / Johan (pronounced [dʒɛˈan]) came to be pronounced Jean, and spelled John. The Norman from the Welsh Marches, with the Norman King of England's mandate conquered Ireland in the 1170s. The Irish nobility was put back by Norman nobles, some of whom bore the Norman French name Johan or the Anglicised name John. The Irish adapted the name to their own pronunciation and spelling, producing the name Seán.

Sean is usually pronounced Shawn (Seán), but in the northern parts of Ireland, it is said "Shan", "Shen" or "Shayn", thus leading to the variant Shane.

Alloxylon is a genus of five species in the Proteaceae family of mainly small to medium-sized trees. They are native to the eastern coast of Australia, with one species, A. brachycarpum found in New Guinea and the Aru Islands. The genus is a relatively new creation, being split off from Oreocallis. The name is derived from Classical Greek allo- "other" or "strange" and xylon or "wood" due to their unusual cell architecture compared with the related genera Telopea and Oreocallis. In Australia, they are known as tree waratahs due to similarities in the inflorescences between them and the closely-related Telopea.
