There is no mystery. Ships don't go missing in the Bermuda Triangle
(Sargasso Sea, if you prefer) any more frequently than they do anywhere
else. Everybody think thier little chunk of water is particularly dangerous
and mysterious:

The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down,
of the big lake they called Gitchegoomee.
The lake it is said never gives up its dead,
when the winds of November come early.
