58,200.  Team Truth travels to a small fishing village in Israel where reports of a real-life mermaid are making headlines.  (Israel & Mermaid & Cryptozoology)  Destination Truth s3e11

 

58,201.  The Kiryat Yam incidents are also unique since they are backed by dozens of eye-witness reports by locals who clearly saw something that scared them at close range.  (Israel & Mermaid & Cryptozoology)  ibid.

 

 

80,931.  When we first arrived in New Guinea after dropping anchor in the bay after being there ten minutes we saw this graceful tail break the surface of the water, and slide slowly down.  Tom Williams, explorer and expedition leader

 

 

80,932.  At Edinburgh’s veterinary school the X-ray team has a most unusual patient.  Could this tiny creature be a baby mermaid?  David Heppell wants the X-rays to tell him whether this strange carcass is real.  An avid mermaid hunter he has seen fakes before.  Sadly this is another, made of wire and plaster.  At the museum of Scotland David Heppell is curator of molluscs; but he still finds time for his hobby: collecting eye-witness stories of mermaids.  He’s netted a rich haul from Scottish seas.  Arthur C Clarkes Mysterious Universe 

 

 

80,933.  There are actually more reports and sightings of mermaids from Scotland than from anywhere else in the world.  One of the best documented sightings of a mermaid from Scotland was that from Thurso in Caithness on the north coast, at the very end of the eighteenth century.  And the witness there was a local schoolmaster.  (Mermaid & Cryptozoology)  David Heppell

 

 

80,934.  Apart from several stories of sightings, there is also from Scotland the story of a rather remarkable capture of a mermaid in the Shetland Islands in the year 1833 when six fishermen found a creature they didn’t recognise entangled in their lines.  They were certainly intrigued by the fact that it had what seemed to be large human-like breasts, and it was light grey in colour, pure white on the belly.  And in this case they said it had webbed fingers.  And the eyes were small and blue.  Unfortunately, they didn’t bring it back to port because it was giving these piteous cries, and they also had this superstition that is was probably unlucky to capture a mermaid.  (Mermaid & Cryptozoology)  David Heppell

 

 

80,935.  The Mermaid Seen on the Coast of Caithness: Letter from Mr W M Munro, Schoolmaster of Thurso to Dr Torrence, regarding a mermaid seen by him some years ago.  Dear sir – your queries respecting the Mermaid are before me.  From the general scepticism which prevails among the learned your character and real desire for investigation being too well known to me, for supposing that you wish to have a fertile imagination indulged by a subject of merriment, I would have been disposed to have concluded, that in this instance you aimed at being ranked among the laughing philosophers at my expense.  Letter to The Times 8th September 1809

 

 

80,936.  Are mermaids real?  And if so, where’s the evidence?  (Mermaid & Cryptozoology & Hoax/Mockumentaries)  Jon Frankel, Mermaids: The Body Found, Animal Planet 2014

80,941.  I have seen them riding seaward on the waves

Combing the white hair of the waves blown back

When the wind blows the water white and black.

 

We have lingered in the chambers of the sea

By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown

Till human voices wake us, and we drown.  T S Eliot, The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock

 

 

80,942.  O, train me not, sweet mermaid, with thy note,

To drown me in thy sister's flood of tears.  William Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors III ii 45

 

 

80,943.  Since once I sat upon a promontory,

And heard a mermaid on a dolphin’s back

Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,

That the rude sea grew civil at her song:

And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,

To hear the sea-maid's music.  William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream II i 149

 

 

80,944.  Who would be

A mermaid fair,

Singing alone,

Combing her hair

Under the sea,

In a golden curl

With a comb of pearl,

On a throne?

I would be a mermaid fair;

I would sing to myself the whole of the day;

With a comb of pearl I would comb my hair;

And still as I comb I would sing and say,

'Who is it loves me?  who loves not me?'  Alfred Lord Tennyson, The Mermaid 1922

 

 

80,945.  Slow sail’d the weary mariners and saw,

Betwixt the green brink and the running foam,

Sweet faces, rounded arms, and bosoms prest

To little harps of gold; and while they mused

Whispering to each other half in fear,

Shrill music reach’d them on the middle sea.  Alfred Lord Tennyson, The Sea Fairies

 

 

80,946.  A mermaid found a swimming lad

Picked him for her own,

Pressed her body to his body,

Laughed; and plunging down

Forgot in cruel happiness

That even lovers drown.  William Butler Yeats, A Man Young and Old
