Tropical Weather and the Bermuda Triangle

Last weekend I was watching a marathon on the Bermuda Triangle mysteries on the History Channel. I don't believe in the supernatural too much, but like watching stuff on the triangle just for the silliness of some of the theories. My personal favorites are the "electronic fog", the sunken power crystals from Atlantis and the wandering wormhole to another dimension. So whats your favorite supernatural theory behind all the disappearances in the waters of the triangle?

Re: Tropical weather and the Bermuda Triangle

I am saailing through there next year!
Should I take a lucky rabbits foot? (Don't spose it was lucky for the rabbit?)

What I like about the Bermuda Triangle is its effect on the Voice-Over Artists voices on the TV docos: It makes them verrrrrrry deeeeep and seriasssssssssss.

If I was doing the VO I'd be saying: "Stuff me Viewers! Check out this crap!"

Re: Tropical weather and the Bermuda Triangle

I don't suppose the frequent hurricanes this time of year have ANYTHING to do with the frequent dissappearance of ships & airplanes there???

Re: Tropical weather and the Bermuda Triangle

I have lived here for 66 yrs, and the most interesting thing is how all the girls become beautiful mermaids after 2300hrs, in the raft-up.
The ritual usually requires lots of "Dark 'n Stormy", but the tails have all gone by morning.

The rest is BS, created for people who still think Bermuda is in the Caribbean.

Actually, MarkJ may have been the most recent phenomenon in the triangle.

Re: Tropical weather and the Bermuda Triangle

The area does not seem to have statistically higher number of accidents than other areas with similar weather conditions.

Supernatural? I agree with Blue Stocking above: MarkJ.

Re: Tropical weather and the Bermuda Triangle

Well, the human race does not know everything about everything, so maybe sometime in the future we will discover that wormhole to another dimension that is causing all the trouble in that area of the sea! But seriously, I don't really think there is any thing paranormal or supernatural there. But to say it's impossible is like saying that it's impossible that man went to the moon.

Re: Tropical weather and the Bermuda Triangle

Of course the hurricanes don't have ANYTHING to do with it! It's those darn Atlantian power crystals!

Re: Tropical weather and the Bermuda Triangle

piffle. I did an in depth study of this very subject while homeschooling in the 6th grade.

EVERYONE knows it's the huge Kraken that trolls there. Grabs ships and aircraft and pulls them down, never to be recovered.

Hungry bugger she is...

Re: Tropical weather and the Bermuda Triangle

Wait Bermuda isn't in the Bahamas? Let me check my map! Just kidding. Mermaids? Are they the ones stealing all the ships? Haven't heard any theories with mermaids. I'll have to look that one up.

Re: Tropical weather and the Bermuda Triangle

And she must live at the bottom of one of those giant megalithic oceanic whirlpools that form there.

So, you met him too? :

The Kraken

Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

-- Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Phantastic poem, isn't it?


Cheers,
barnie
