17 WEIRD Facts About The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle is located between Puerto Rico, Miami, and Bermuda. It is an area shrouded in mystery and conspiracy theories due to a large amount of ships and planes that have historically been lost in the area.

When exactly did all the mysteries begin? Although news about the unusual disappearances in the Bermuda area was reported in 1952, the earliest allegation was actually made by Edward Van Winkle Jones in an article he published in The Miami Herald on September 17, 1950.

Nothing weird about that area. Gulf Stream = shitty weather sometimes. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Sailed through it a shitload of times and nothing weird ever happened. Sailed through it back in 93 the night Alabama won the inaugural SEC championship game a month before spanking Miami for the national championship. The steward department was kind enough to let me watch it with them. The shit head deck engineer was in the unlicensed engine lounge watching porno.

[B][U]The USS Cyclops, 1918[/U][/B]

The USS Cyclops was a massive carrier ship that supplied fuel to the American feet in WWI. The ship set sail with 309 people on board and was full of heavy cargo. The ship was last heard from in Barbados where it stopped to load more cargo before making the final stretch of journey to Baltimore, where it was expected. It never arrived, a huge search initiative started covering the entire route of the Cyclops looking for leftover debris fearing the ship had fallen victim to the German Submarines. No trace of the ship was ever found and it makes for one of the largest losses of life in the Bermuda Triangle. In 1941, two of the Cyclops’s sister ships disappeared along the same route.

[B][U]USS Proteus (AC-9)[/U][/B]

The USS Proteus (AC-9) was a Navy collier that had been converted into a merchant ship. It was never heard from again after Nov. 23, 1941, when it left port from St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, bound for an East Coast port in the United States. The approximately 540-foot-long (165 meters) ship was carrying 58 men and a cargo of bauxite ore to be made into aluminum. Two of Proteus’s three sister-ships, the Cyclops and Nereus, also vanished without a trace in the Bermuda Triangle.

Sailed through the “Bermuda Triangle” more times than I care to count. . . Even spent some time hunting treasure there, in the Bahamas. . . it’s all BS. . .

I am through it maybe once a year or so. Still alive
