It's basically the same thing as malarkey.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."

I love the MonsterQuest and Hunting for Bigfoot type shows. But as a scientist, I'm skeptical about the existence of a large, undiscovered ape living in North America. With millions of automobiles, and millions of hunters, and millions of people who watch this type of show (me included!), you'd think a sasquatch would have been hit by a car, accidentally shot by a hunter, or photographed by now. I really hope that there's a Bigfoot, but I doubt it.

I thought there was a chupacabra running around Pueblo West, but it turned out to be a mangy coyote. I was bitterly bummed out.
