Philadelphia Experiment

Perhaps a conspiracy, but the crew only knows, the Happenings aboard the USS Eldridge, kept hushed In a ship that sailed from sea port to time portals Leaves a feeling this test was not ready, but rushed Amid the Atlantic they were meant to disappear Despite intentions, not only from sight did they vanish Ever baffled by a green, eerie glow where the ship was Last, by naval command all of the records were banished People say they reappeared in the Norfolk Naval shipyard Heavily disoriented and fused to the steel hull of the deck In legend they say these sailors fused were alive And how did they explain this more than a ship wreck Each crewman survivor, where are they all now X-rayed and studied in a black ops facility? Prying minds still trying to make sense of it all Ever curious, but maybe beyond my ability Remaining questions with impossible answers In theory, could there still be witnesses left Men or woman who saw a war ship materialize Each in disbelief of their eyes, their logic bereft Not knowing if it was paranormal or sanity failing This gave a new definition, to the term parasailing

A most interesting situation, Hat. Tell us more. Is this fiction or based on a real occurence?

It depends who you ask I suppose ;). Supposedly a failed teleporting navy ship that didn't quite reappear as hoped around WWII (in a nutshell). A few movies made and many a conspiracy theory around it. If you look up the Philadelphia experiment there's many a rabbit hole to go down, I always thought it was interesting (insert twilight zone music here) but hey, you never know....
