Jova, the newest hurricane to form in the Pacific Ocean, inched toward western Mexico early Sunday and is expected to intensify over the next two days.

As of 8 p.m. PT Saturday (11 p.m. ET), Jova was about 405 miles (655 kilometers) west-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. It was crawling east about 5 mph (7 kph), and is expected to turn northeast later Sunday.

    According to the USCG, 120 boats disappear in the Bermuda Triangle.
    Something must be done to stop the monstrous killer!

    @ @source:
    Agreed.
    I don't take anything for face value; if someone wants me to take them seriously, they need citations.
    I have no intention of researching research; if the poster can't/won't do it, it is rendered meaningless, and therefore, useless.

    @Mmmmmm:
    Well, it Depends.

    The Bermuda Triangle has always fascinated me. I wonder what that force is that causes all these disappearances. This has been going on since like WW2, hasn't it ?

    @bobcat2u:

    It was going on before that, but the most famous case if Navy Flight 19, when 5 Navy planes went down in the BT.

    You know how it went from point A to B; Philip imparting hos specia brand of 'research' on us.

  8. how do people go "off topic"

    Conversations wander. Remember as a kid we would line-up, and the first kid would whisper "look into this, Donna" into the next kids ear, and by the time it got to the end of the line, the last kid would hear "book into Obama"? Funny how people pretend not to remember, and go off-topic themselves frequently. (and as you dummies know, an actual web page address can contain dozens of charachters. Simply knowing a question and going to, say, the Centers for disease Control's website will get you to your "citation". How many citations have YOU posted in the past year banasy? How many websites have you even cited? You people are coming-up with some lame excuses for not debating me on these topics. You'll even say that you aren't into debating...then glue your nose to the the TV for Perry Mason or a political debate. (shrug)
