The Bermuda Triangle...InterestinG

The Bermuda Triangle, also known as Limbo of the Lost, The Twilight Zone, Hoodoo Sea,
The Devil's Triangle, The vast three-sided segment of the Atlantic Ocean bordered
by Bermuda,Puerto Rico and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, did not receive its most famous
nickname until 1964,but reports of bizarre happenings there, or nearby, have been
recorded for centuries. In fact, many claim that Christopher Columbus bore witness to the
Bermuda Triangle's weirdness.

The Bermuda Triangle, is a region of the northwestern Atlantic Ocean in which a
number of aircraft and surface vessels have disappeared. Some people have claimed
that these disappearances fall beyond the boundaries of human error or acts of nature.
Some of these disappearances have been attributed to the paranormal, a suspension
of the laws of physics, or activity by extraterrestrial beings by popular culture.
Though a substantial documentation exists showing numerous incidents to have been
inaccurately reported or embellished by later authors, and numerous official agencies
 have gone on record as stating the number and nature of disappearances to be
similar to any other area of ocean, many have remained
unexplained despite considerable investigation.

The area is one of the most heavily-sailed shipping lanes in the world, with ships
crossing through itdaily for ports in the Americas, Europe, and the Caribbean Islands.
Cruise ships are also plentiful, and pleasure craft regularly go back and forth between
Florida and the islands. It is also a heavily flown route for commercial and
private aircraft heading towards Florida, the Caribbean, and
South America from points north.

The Gulf Stream ocean current flows through the Triangle after leaving the Gulf of Mexico;
its current of five to six knots may have played a part in a number of disappearances.
Sudden storms can and do appear, and in the summer to late fall hurricanes
strike the area. The combination of heavy maritime traffic and tempestuous
weather makes it inevitable that vessels could founder in storms and be lost
without a trace ­ especially before improved telecommunications, radar,
and satellite technology arrived late in the 20th century.

The Bermuda Triangle has a long history of weird happenings. Let's take a look at some of them.
1492 - Christopher Columbus reports strange lights and strange compass readings.
1609 - The Sea Venture wrecks during the first attempt to colonize Bermuda.
1814 - The USS Epervier and her crew disappear while carrying the peace treaty to
            end the war between America and the North African Barbary States.
1855 - The schooner James B. Chester is found floating in the ocean. The crew is missing
            but there is no sign of struggle, and the lifeboats are still in place.
1918 - One of the largest ships of the time the 19,000-ton Navy supply ship
            USS Cyclops, and its crew of 300, vanishes without a trace.
1941 - The USS Proteus and the USS Nereus vanish, just as their sister ship
            the USS Cyclops had previously done along the same route.
1945 - Flight 19, five USN Avenger aircraft disappear after reporting compass
            malfunctions. A search-and-rescue plane sent to find them is never seen again.
1971 - Sting-27, a USAF Phantom jet, vanishes without a trace. Official reports indicate
            it may have suffered an impact, but the details are never revealed.
1976 - The Sylvia L. Ossa, a 590-foot ore carrier with a crew of 37 disappears
            140 miles from Bermuda.
1991 - The pilot of a Grumman Cougar jet makes a routine radio request to increase
            altitude. During the ascent, the aircraft fades from radar and vanishes.
1999 - The cargo freighter Genesis radios a nearby vessel, indicating a problem with
            the bilge pump.Despite extensive searches by the Coast Guard, the
            ship and crew are never seen or heard from again. 

Alien Beam Me Up LoL

The Bermuda Triangle is, reportedly, an area with one of the highest incidences of UFO
sightings.So, it's no wonder that alien abductions have been a popular explanation for
disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle. Some believe that aliens use the
Bermuda Triangle as a collection station of sorts.
When planes and ships disappear, it is because aliens have taken them away for
thorough examination. But abductions aren't the only theory
some also have theorized that the Bermuda Triangle is a sort of portal to other planets
or acts as a magnetic field that allows people (and their modes of transport)
to travel to other dimensions.
