The Bermuda Triangle

     The Bermuda Triangle (also known as the Devil's Triangle) is a nearly half-million square-mile area of ocean roughly defined by the islands of Bermuda and Puerto Rico, and the southernmost tip of the state of Florida. The Triangle rose to popularity through representation by the mass media as a paranormal site in which the known laws of physics are either violated, altered, or both.
    One well-known case of disappearance in the area is that of Flight 19, the flight of Avenger TBMS that vanished without a trace while out on a training run on December 5th, 1945. Squadron Leader Lt. Charles Taylor reported being in trouble due to disorientation 40 minutes into the flight. The air  controllers at Ft. Lauderdale attempted to offer aid, but lost contact with Flight 19. It has never been found.
     While there is a common belief that a number of ships and airplanes have disappeared under highly unusual circumstances in this region, the United States Coast Guard, among others, disagree with that assessment, citing statistics demonstrating that the number of incidents involving lost ships and aircraft is no larger than that of any other heavily traveled region of the world. Many of the alleged mysteries have proven not so mysterious or unusual upon close examination, with inaccuracies and misinformation about the cases often circulating and recirculating over the decades.
     Everything from aliens to electromagnetic energy has been used to explain the triangles strange properties, though no definite answer has been put forth. Do you believe that the Bermuda Triangle does indeed cause those traveling through it to disappear never to be seen again, or is the area merely the victim of sensationalism?

  1. Maybe that's where Cthulu is O_O I think I've actually already heard that theory too. The Bermuda Triangle is one of those things I've found myself pondering a lot, and I think Cthulu is the only real logical answer.

  7. There are a few explanations of the triangle that do not include paranormal ideas that sound pretty plausible, but i like to keep my mind open.
