  • It's one of the most dangerous

  • and mysterious places on Earth.

  • It's home to dozens of sunken ships,

  • plane crashes, and

  • dead people.

  • It's known as the Bermuda Triangle

  • and it's shrouded in mystery.

  • The 1.3 million square kilometers (500,000 sq mi) of ocean

  • that is the Bermuda Triangle

  • goes from Florida

  • to Puerto Rico

  • and then all the way to Bermuda.

  • Since the 1800s,

  • there have been nearly 1,000 reported incidents

  • of people mysteriously disappearing in the area.

  • ranging from small bush planes

  • carrying just two passengers,

  • to ships 150 meters (500 feet) long

  • carrying over 300 people.

  • So, if we decided to put our trash here,

  • would that disappear as well?

  • Before we even think of

  • dumping our garbage into the Bermuda Triangle,

  • we first need to figure out

  • exactly how we'd get there.

  • Naturally, we'd take a boat as

  • we're going to dump our trash into the sea,

  • and a boat would allow us to carry more,

  • and be more accurate as to where we want it to go.

  • You might be thinking that

  • this is an incredibly risky move.

  • Going right to the center of the Bermuda Triangle?

  • Are you insane?

  • But there's a pretty good chance that we'll be just fine.

  • There's a number of theories,

  • some good and some bad,

  • as to what really happens in the Bermuda Triangle.

  • Is it some crazy alien portal

  • that's abducting all our humans?

  • Is there a massive underwater city that's underneath it?

  • Or is there a scary sea monster living in it?

  • As fun as these theories may sound,

  • they're all incredibly far from the truth.

  • Sorry about that.

  • One of the more plausible theories we have

  • about the Bermuda Triangle disappearances

  • has to do with methane explosions.

  • The theory is that

  • these methane explosions come up from the ocean floor,

  • and erupt so violently, that they're able to tip

  • even the most massive ships.

  • But since this theory has been proposed,

  • physicists, as well as ocean experts, have debunked it.

  • They've said there's virtually no chance of a methane explosion

  • being big enough to topple over a boat.

  • And if there was a massive explosion,

  • there's a good chance the ship would survive.

  • That's because boats are built to handle massive changes in the water,

  • including huge waves and even methane bubbles.

  • So now that we're here with our trash,

  • we can finally dump it.

  • But now it seems to be just floating there,

  • living in the ocean.

  • Where's the giant sinkhole

  • that makes all our trash magically disappear?

  • You know, the same place that's

  • taken all these planes and boats over the years?

  • It turns out that

  • the Bermuda Triangle

  • isn't all that dangerous.

  • Sure, it may be a little mysterious, but

  • all these disappearances can be attributed to severe weather,

  • massive waves, and human error.

  • The Bermuda Triangle isn't even the most lethal body of water in the world.

  • That title

  • can be given to the oceans in East Asia and Australia.

  • And although nearly 1,000 deaths

  • in the past 200 years might

  • seem like a lot,

  • it really isn't when you consider the fact that

  • the Bermuda Triangle is one of the most heavily traveled areas

  • of ocean and sky in the world.

  • So sure,

  • we'll need to watch out for any hurricanes and big waves,

  • but that'll be the least of our worries for now.

  • We just dumped tons of trash into the ocean.

  • We thought that

  • maybe the Bermuda Triangle would somehow get rid of it.

  • This was a really dumb idea.

  • Unfortunately, what we just did

  • probably won't even be all that noticeable in the sea.

  • An estimated 14 billion tons of trash

  • is thrown into the ocean every year.

  • Let's say we threw

  • all of New York's trash, for a year,

  • into the Bermuda Triangle.

  • That's 14 million tons of garbage.

  • It might sound like a lot,

  • but it would only be a tiny fragment

  • of the rest of the trash that's tossed into the ocean each year.

  • This was a pretty terrible idea,

  • and definitely not one that should be attempted.

  • And it's not for our safety, but

  • for the safety of our ocean.

  • Instead of adding to the problem, we should be helping to solve it

  • by doing our best to clean the ocean.

  • Maybe a better idea

  • would be to throw our trash into a volcano.

  • That has to work, right?

  • Well, we'll leave that story for another, WHAT IF.

It's one of the most dangerous
