I don’t actually have this title category, I just invented the title in honor of what I just stumbled across flipping through channels on DirecTV. I landed on the History Channel. Egads! Some diving guys on a boat haul around some scientist with a “magnetic anomaly detector”, which looks like a Radio Shack electronics kit gone bad, and are looking for black holes (yes the gravitational kind) in the Bermuda Triangle. Yes, really.
Here’s the DVD you can buy from the History Channel.
And here’s the program description:
Explore with us the wonders and mysteries of the Black Holes in our universe. Is it possible that areas on earth might, in fact, show black hole like tendencies?
We take a hard scientific look at an area known as the Bermuda Triangle to see if there are indeed any similarities between the supposed forces in the triangle and the destructive force of a black hole.
From a research boat trip through the triangle to interviews with scientists at the US Geological Survey, Harvard University, and the UK’s Cardiff University, we go far beyond the event horizon to explore the dangers in this area and what relation they might indeed have with its counterpoint in space.
There’s a line in the TV show where they say “…there’s no question that the climate can change suddenly around the Bermuda triangle”…so for these folks, I guess weather is climate. *Sigh* God help us.
The poor chumps at these prestigious organizations they brought in as experts probably had no idea that they’d appear in a dreckumentary that has the crew of the Minnow looking for black holes under the sea in the Bermuda triangle.
