Default Bermuda Triangle Ship reappears after 90 years????

WTF??

This should be a interesting thread.... Seriously, someone had to of had the ship dry docked, then refloated it.

Could a vessel float around for 90 years???

Haha, clearly someone was attempting to start a discussion all the while knowing what they were posting was false. You dont happen to work for espn, or Brian Williams, do you? Gotta be more careful on which cut gets pasted, lol.

Internet Rumor
In 2015 a viral rumor that spread across social media websites, specifically Twitter and Facebook, asserted that the S.S. Cotopaxi had been found in the Bermuda Triangle 90 years after going missing. However this was the work of a website known for printing satirical or fabricated articles.

Elvis at 80.


But the rumor that Elvis is still alive of course very accurate.

If it's on the internet it has to be true. So I'm sure the article that states it's fake info is fake....

It's like a few weeks ago, my wife said Willy Nelson died. My son said the same thing, I told them no way. It would have been all over the news. It was a post on FB also. Just another lie on Face Book.

That's what you think, lol. You know mistakes can't live a timely death on this forum. What fun is it if 500 people don't pile on before the thread gets sent to the bilge.

I've never made the mistake of believing a Facebook article, no. Anything seen on Facebook should be taken with a large grain of salt and checked out.
