The latest batshit crazy theory behind the Bermuda Triangle weirdness? Hexagonal clouds.


Take this with a grain of salt. Or the whole shaker. Maybe a 50 lb. bag of the stuff you spread on your driveway in the winter.... Just bear with us here:

The latest "reason" that "scientists" have put forward "explaining" the hundreds of disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle is, and we're not kidding here: hexagonal clouds. 

Hexagonal. Clouds.


These clouds can create wind "bombs" that sink ships and down airplanes. Winds reach up to 170 mph, creating 45-foot-tall waves that topple ships like dominoes.

These types of hexagonal shapes over the ocean are in essence air bombs.

"They are formed by what are called microbursts and they're blasts of air that come down out of the bottom of a cloud and then hit the ocean and then create waves that can sometimes be massive in size as they start to interact with each other," meteorologist Randy Cerveny told the Mirror

The so-called triangle is an area that stretches between Miami, Puerto Rico and Bermuda. Scores of planes and hundreds of ships have disappeared while traveling through its borders. 

Over the decades, loads of different geological and meteorological theories have been put forward to explain the disappearances.

The one before hexagonal clouds? Ocean farts.

That's right. Giant gas bubbles sent to the surface of the sea by giant craters formed at the bottom of the ocean.

The water underneath a ship turns to denser foam, and poof! The ship sinks, never to be heard of again.  

WATCH  | No, really, there's whole documentaries about the strange stuff happening within the Bermuda Triangle.

This National Geographic film speculates what you'd find if you could somehow drain away the ocean to discover what's lying on the ocean floor.
