    Is there any real information on the strange breeds of human which can be found in the back country of north america's south(or anywhere else for that matter)?
    I've become really fascinated by this subject. It's annoying that humans aren't studied in the same way animals are because I feel there might be some interesting creatures with interesting behaviours living in them thar hills.
    Does anyone have any pictures of freaky hillbillies or know of any sites which address the topic? Searching for "appalachian hillbillies" or "inbreds in the ozarks" will bring up sites with people saying "not everyone in the ozarks is the stereotypical inbred hick lol" and crap like that which no one could possibly be interested in. An image search gets laugh-a-second types dressed as hillbillies. I suppose that's to be expected as I wouldn't be interested in a hillbilly with an internet connection or digital camera. I want to know about really wild freaks with hog features who have their own language and a way of life which hasn't changed for hundreds of years. Like early settler families which went off into the woods and then bred amongst themselves up untill today, no contact with the outside world other than perhaps one brave adventurer who wrote a book about them or took photos only to leave them to their creepy and bizarre business.
    Anybody?
    This is in pseudoscience as I figure the topic is technically cryptozoology.

    Do you really want to see something so horrible? Certainly they'd be better left alone. Most wouldn't choose to face the darkside of humanity.

    During the Clinton administration, for sure.

    Look for the x-files episode "Home". (season 4, ep. 3)
    It actually was taken off air because it was too horrific for the general public.
    Of course, it is fiction, but it's on the topic.

    The only reference of anything I can give you close to this is that during one of the Chinese dynasties (Ming perhaps?) there was inbreeding enough to cause children to be born with tails. Apparently, the lack of fresh gene can cause such mutations, but I have heard of nothing modern to support this.
