The Lagarfljótsormurinn, the Loch Ness Monster of Iceland, Captured on Video?

So it seems like I picked a good week to come back from my self-imposed hiatus from the site. Lots of good, juicy, and all around dumb paranormal stories to pick from. And so little time.

But New York City is only a small part […]
