Storming Area 51

Another Friday thread!!

More than 440,000 UFO enthusiasts signed up to “storm Area 51” through a Facebook event in efforts to "see them aliens."

As of Friday afternoon, the event, titled Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us, has over 442,000 people signed up to attend. More than 450,000 others have also indicated interest in the event.

“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” the event description reads. “If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens.”

The event is set to take place on Sept. 20 at Area 51, an Air Force base in Nevada where many conspiracy theorists have long believed the U.S. government holds top secret information about extraterrestrial life.

I suppose it is not PC to say the world is full of nutters??

Re: Storming Area 51

Er, if it’s an air force base, why couldn’t they just fly out the evidence?

Area 52 anyone?

Re: Storming Area 51

If I was in charge of protecting the secrets of Area 51, I'd put such an event on FB just to see who was signing up - and then put them all on the no-fly list ;-)

Re: Storming Area 51

The organizers just need to bring along a few bus loads of illegal aliens and their children. They’ll be touring the base and enjoying free rides on the spaceships within hours.

Will end up with a party somewhere outside the base, huge headlines a declaration from the loonies and all go home again.

Re: Storming Area 51

The Air Force gave a word of caution to the thousands of people planning to storm Area 51 in Nevada later this year, warning the UFO enthusiasts that the military “stands ready to protect America and its assets.”

What else did you expect, that they just open the doors, let everybody in and while they all raid the place the airforce serves nice and warm coffee?

Unfortunately this is a result of decades of world governments withholding information regarding UFO's. The more secretive they are, the more people will speculate and obsess and then things like this will happen.

Even if they had that full 400'000 people storming Area 51 (more likely it will be a few thousand that would actually turn up, though I may be wrong) it is highly unlikely they would see or get access to anything considered top secret as it would all be moved beforehand and/or or be locked underground.

Perhaps, just perhaps there is nothing to withhold, no UFO secrets, no aliens. You know, just like they have been telling all along.

Don't be so naive as to think that a mere President of the USA could get access to that kind of information.

Re: Storming Area 51

I wonder what the organizers are thinking: "Let's wear our tin-foil hats and run towards the fences unarmed. The 50 or so guys with machine-guns that can fire 60 bullets per min can only take 3000 of us/min. So we need...how many people?"

I would not assume the organisers are actually thinking

I wonder if they take in account the extra time it takes to climb over the bodies that should be piling up upfront.

Nah, shoot 10 of them and immediately there is a human stampede in the opposite direction.

The chances that the USA does not have, or does not know about, some or many of the aircraft (terrestrial or otherwise) responsible for UFO sightings are slim to none. Whether those UFO's are at Area 51 or not is another question.

I want to see a live feed of this especially *if* they get on the base, how many of them it takes to open a blast door

Re: Storming Area 51

Maybe they can all take those guns with them that they feel entitled to have.

Storming a military base should be a lot easier than overthrowing a whole government. Call it practice, if you will.

They'll have a busy weekend at Groom Lake, that's certain.

I bet the guards are thrilled about the extra shifts.
