Stories of mermaids have enthralled and terrified sailors for centuries. The idea of irresistible beauties who charm men with magical voices to then drown them in the briny depths of the sea might sound like a ridiculous fairy tale in modern times, but in pre-scientific days, such superstitions were taken to heart. A lot of strange, unexplained things happen out on the open ocean and stories of mermaids were just one way of attempting to explain why some ships seemed to disappear without a trace, or why some sailors appeared to become enchanted and jump into the sea. Although we know now that rogue waves and bad weather are the forces that usually sink ships and that countless days on the sea with little food and water can cause hallucinations, mermaids continue to be a popular theme of cartoons, books, movies, and decor.
