For some strange reason, an Australian scientist is making headlines for purportedly solving the Bermuda Triangle mystery by rehashing decades-old explanations already offered by skeptics.
Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki, a popular television personality somewhat akin to Bill Nye in America, likely didn't expect to stir such furor when he pontificated about the infamous esoteric enigma in a recent interview.
Asked what may be behind the many ships and planes which purportedly vanish in the Triangle, Kruszelnicki simply dismissed the mystery out of hand.
The scientist noted that such disappearances are in keeping with statistical norms, especially since the area has heavy traffic due to its proximity to America as well as the equator.
While Kruszelnicki's reasoning may hold water, it's being seen as old news to Triangle enthusiasts who are left to wondering why an explanation from the 1970's is suddenly being brought back to the surface of discussion.
