Bermuda Triangle – Did You Know…

… That one of my first presentations I did in school was about the Bermuda Triangle? I know, I know… who cares and why is this worthy of one of my “Did You Know” posts? Maybe I just want to let you know how much the Bermuda Triangle and all the myths around it has fascinated me over years. It still does. So I thought I might list some “facts” about the Bermuda Triangle.
