I saw a special on the Bermuda triangle
http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a3_067.html that gave a pretty descent hypothesis of the bermuda triangle. Get this–there are pockets of methane gas under the earths crust, in excess in this particular location. sometimes, when pieces of the coast slide down into the deep, they rupture these pockets sending the gas to the surface. Boats sink because the water gets less dense with the addition of gas and get buried when the debree settles back on top. Planes blow up suddenly because methane is explosive. this is why they seldom call for help, it’s too late! Is there anything to this or am i a little naive?
