THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE: A HISTORY OF MYSTERY and more True Ocean Terrors! #WeirdDarkness

Published: June 11, 2024, 1:38 a.m.

b'The Bermuda Triangle, also called the Devil\'s Triangle, is a famous part of the ocean where many ships and planes have mysteriously disappeared. Located between Bermuda, Puerto Rico, and the tip of Florida, this area has puzzled people for over 100 years. From the spooky disappearance of the USS Cyclops with 306 crew members in 1918 to the more recent sinking of the SS El Faro in 2015, the Bermuda Triangle becomes more mysterious year after year. Tonight we\\u2019ll look at some of the strangest events in the Triangle, like Flight 19, which vanished during a routine training mission; and the Witchcraft, a boat that disappeared just minutes after calling for help. We\'ll explore different ideas about why these things happen, from natural explanations like methane gas bubbles to wild theories like alien abductions. We\\u2019ll look at other locations around the world similar to the Bermuda Triangle that don\\u2019t get the same recognition \\u2013 but are just as mysterious. And while we\\u2019re in the water, we\\u2019ll touch on a few ocean ghost stories, and reports of sea monsters. So before we get started, if you tend to get sea sick, you might want to grab your Dramamine.
