Ya know if I owned a company that built wood chippers and had red paint and didn't mind...naaa never mind.

I don't recall the glowing dildo scene from the movie. Must have been edited out.

Okay, I find local legends fascinating so I am pretty familiar with them and I call BS on the "Spiteful Mermaid of Pyramid Lake"

Now, Pyramid Lake DOES have a pretty sinister reputation but it isn't "mermaids" it's water spirits whose Paiute name I forget (my family is from that neck of the woods though, and I could find out if anyone cares). White settlers corrupted THAT myth into said spirits being the ghosts of babies drowned by the Paiutes (what the savages did to babies who had deformities, you see) and those vengeful ghosts being malicious. But either way, it's much closer to aquatic ghosts than mermaids.

Pyramid Lake DOES have a lot fatal accidents and such, but I attribute that to the fact that its a pretty popular spot for fishing, swimming, boating, etc so more people on the lake == more people IN the lake, catch my drift.

Caves near the lake are also said to have been inhabited by giants and the area as a whole is said to be home to a species of small red haired humanoids less than a foot tall. I know people who claim to have actually seen the latter, but I take that all with a grain of salt. Still, I guess that graphic got it right in that if we have a nexus of supernatural weirdness in Nevada, Pyramid Lake is it.

We also are supposed to have cryptids in both Lake Tahoe (Tessie) and Walker Lake (Cecil). Lots of weird local legends around here, one of the reasons I set a lot of my fiction around here.

And of course, "Every Country has a Monster" and that applies equally to states.
