Do you have something else going on September 20th, the date of the “Storm Area 51” extravaganza? Is 1.4 million people too large of a crowd? Do you fear the government and military officials who a threatening to attack (or worse) anyone who tries to breach the perimeter? This this event may be for you. On October 1, boaters, scuba divers, thrill seekers, paranormal experts and the just plain curious are invited to “Storm The Bermuda Triangle, It Can’t Swallow All Of Us.” How many CAN it swallow?
“Trying to assemble live music food and entertainment. check the go fund me in the discussion section. attendees must dress as spongebob characters or pirates. I’ll provide the boats and scuba gear. just bring weed and a lot of beer and whiskey.”
As of this writing, Anthony Dominick Carnovale, organizer of “Storm The Bermuda Triangle,” shows over 17,000 people going and over 24,000 interested on the event’s Facebook page. A better gauge of interest and commitment might be his GoFUndMe page, which has a goal of raising $75,000 and a commitment of … $5.
“Honestly, everyone thinks I’m trying to scam people with this GoFundMe thing but I’m legit trying to [throw] a party for everyone so they’ll come to my thing and not get murdered or arrested at Area 51.”
Well, as “legit” as one can be requiring participants to dress as SpongeBob or pirates and bring adult beverages while they hunt for “the lost pilots and the hidden islands in the mysterious triangle” between the hours of 8 a.m. on Oct. 1 until 11 a.m. on Oct. 2. The Facebook page is filling up fast with comments and suggestions, not to mention offers to ferry people to the Bermuda Triangle … for a fee, of course, and no mention of a guarantee that the boat will be there to ferry them back.
One commenter on another site took the “It Can’t Swallow Us All” challenge seriously, calculating that the Bermuda Triangle — loosely defined as a triangle in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean connecting Bermuda, Puerto Rico and the southern tip of Florida — is between 1,300,000 and 3,900,000 square kilometers (500,000 to 1.5 million sq. miles) in area and 8,380 meters (5.2 miles) deep … plenty large enough to the entire population of Earth with room for their boats, planes, beer and whiskey.
A benefit to storming the Bermuda Triangle rather than Area 51 is that it’s much more difficult to patrol. The US Air Force has already warned that it “stands ready to protect America and its assets” from the estimated 1.4 million (and growing) people who have pledged to storm the base and “See them aliens.” What will the stormers of the Bermuda Triangle see?
Well, based on the many tales of ships and planes allegedly lost in the area, they could also see aliens, but it’s more likely they’re see storms (suspected to be the cause of most Triangle disappearances, giant methane bubbles (released from the bottom and big enough to cause massive waves or knock planes out of the sky), collisions (some have been blamed on heavy traffic in the area), accidents (beer and boats don’t mix) and compass anomalies allegedly caused by an odd magnetic field in the area.
They’ll also see plenty of Storm the Bermuda triangle memes – Keanu Reeves has already posted one. Is “Storm The Bermuda Triangle, It Can’t Swallow All Of Us” real or an elaborate joke? “Storm Area 51” was said to have started as a joke but has become a movement for or against whatever you want it to be for or against. Carnovale seems to feel the same way.
”This is the time for assembly to show this country we can organize. Let’s go have a good time. Let’s still clap these sea monster cheeks. Ok. Let’s all just have fun.”
Clap these sea monster cheeks? That’s what SHE said.
