3 Steve: Crikey! That's bonza!
4 Young Jane Goodall: Yes. I was going to dedicate my life to studying primates, but clearly there's more fame, fortune, and reputation to be gained in cryptozoology.

It's true. If someone were to definitively prove the existence of Bigfoot, or the Loch Ness Monster, or any other of the classic cryptozoological entities - say by capturing a live specimen - they would instantly become vastly more famous and wealthy than anyone who had dedicated decades of tireless effort to researching well-known animals.

Of course the odds of anyone doing so are pretty low. But if they do, spare a thought for all the dedicated wildlife researchers out there who do their work with little or no recognition.

2022-07-22 Rerun commentary: Or you can go Charles Darwin's route and study barnacles for many years without reward, and then one day look at a few birds and make the biggest breakthrough of your entire career.
