Let’s face it, if Trump knew about this so would the Twittersphere.
So... you believe Trump is actually a human?

Re: Storming Area 51

"UFO enthusiasts"? Is that a euphemism for rioting activists?

Why don't they actually do something constructive. Like chip in with the Breakthrough Listen. Or volunteer at radiotelescope centers, the one I went to really needed help (guides, maintenance..).

Because the Ufo folks in California and Nevada are a bit more on the hippie side of things… just think "burning man" kind of folks. They neither typically riot nor are scientists. That event was a joke and a thought experiment that took a life of its own. Nobody was actually planning to "naruto run" into an airforce facility. But now I am not sure if people wont get hurt. Ufos and Aliens might not exist, but Area 51 does… its still secret, its operational and I am pretty sure the military wont let any drunk frat boys walk into it.

I hope they try. They will just get hugely embarrassed for being total posers and arrested, most proly.

Thats what would happen in any other country. But thats the US and Nevada in particular... I am afraid of the real nutters showing up there. The difference between an American nutter and the EU counterpart is that the American one has an assault rifle… this has the potential to spiral out of control fast.

Could be, but storming an army base with assault rifles through huge distances of open field with no cover is no more or less than suicide. Surely we can add metal plated armoured trucks and what not to the situation but let's not do such. In the end there is only one group of people who can claim victory at the end of the day.

Those that sell specific souvenirs on spot.
