There are like 5 oceans - atlantic, pacific, indian, arctic, and southern. Why do you need a list of the most dangerous?

The area around Christmas Island seems to be very deadly.  Many boats seem to sink there that are full of refugees.

I wonder if some of the odd things in the Bermuda Triangle were a result of frozen methane thawing out and heading towards the surface were it expands enough to make a hole big enough for a boat to fall in as well as being explosive and toxic.

FTFA: Today, though, Sparrow would have less to brag about. In a new study released by WWF, the Caribbean didn't make the list of most dangerous seas.

I call bullshiat. This is just a setup for the return of "Tugboat".

I don't think I've ever seen the verb "shirk" used in the passive voice before. It's ugly. That plus the missing apostrophe made this headline extremely painful to read.

The "odd things in the Bermuda Triangle" are a hoax designed to sell paperback books.  There is not a significantly larger number of losses of life there than in any other similarly sized patch of ocean with equal traffic.  Most of the losses can be attributed to either tropical storms or tourists getting in boating accidents due to inexperience with the ocean.  If the Bermuda Triangle were actually more dangerous, Lloyds of London would charge higher insurance premiums for cargo ships passing through that area; they don't, so it isn't, Q.E.D.    The whole thing is a "manufactured mystery."

I live in Bermuda, so I am finding these comments....oh wait, no I'm not.

Has any ship boat or dinghy disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle in the last 40 years?

They're friggin huge too, it's not like a localized area. What good does the list do? They're going to share the same dangers for the most part.

The universe is a fascinating place all by itself.  There's no need to make up fake mysteries; they only detract from the study of the really interesting stuff!

With the Bermuda triangle from the list having been shirked, scientists moved on to more important things.
