The Bermuda Triangle and the Rogue Wave Theory

Ahh, the Bermuda Triangle. The area of ocean between Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico that supposedly is cursed, and is responsible for the loss of hundreds of aircraft and ships, as well as the lives of those on board.

New Zealand Sea Monster Spotted on Google Earth

Google Earth is a blessing and a curse. Obviously it’s nice to see amazing satellite images of the Earth, and it’s awesome to be able to zoom in and see where we live or places we’ve never been to.

A rotting carcass recently washed up on the shores of Spain, and people immediately started wondering what the creature was. It was even dubbed Spain’s Montauk monster, even though the creature in Montauk was a mammal and the horned sea monster in Spain was obviously a sea creature of some sort. But like the Montauk […]
