The Infamous “Kansas Rectangle”

At last, someone has conducted an investigation into the Kansas Rectangle, the Bermuda Triangle’s deadlier and less well-known cousin:

The few known photos from inside the Rectangle show only a flat, blank emptiness, stretching unremarkably to the horizon…What happens in the lives of those who venture within remains a mystery.

From The Onion.

    I was born in this so-called Rectangle, grew up there, and many of my friends were also, many of whom still live there. I am now 77 years old and only yesterday 7/24/’11 did I for the FIRST TIME hear my state called this.
    I am healthy, and I never heard of anyone disappearing there in ways that were not fairly explained–and I’m sure no more “disappear” there than in other states.

    I hope people realize that this “story” is from The Onion- which is a total spoof paper. They make up fake stories for fun. That’s how they got popular.
