Ready To Storm Area 51 and see Them Aliens?

That's right , and supposedly 1.7 million are planning for the event on Friday, September 20, 2019 at 3-6AM PDT.




So the nightmare of logistics even aside, who's going?

The thing is if they ever did have aliens or alien technology it’s probably been moved because Area 51 became so famous.

There’s no doubt in my mind the government has some proof of aliens but it’s probably not there anymore.

Yeah I was thinking that, even if there WAS anything, doesn't mean it's there now and also, the date for this storm is known.

And if there was anything... lets be honest, if Trump surely would have inside info on that now I can't see him not wanting to make it public. lol More than two years and nothing? I figured then that the aliens probably aren't real. lol


If any idiots really do try to go storm Area 51, I hope they can take as many other idiots when them and, well... good luck! Might be a great way to cull the herd of some of the idiots.

Though I've also seen it joked that that many have responded via FB with "planning" on attending... but probably five will show up.

I mean, it's a joke from start to finish. The guy who started it never even intended on it happening and then it blew out of control.


It's very unlikely for anything to happen. Especially with Area 51 being really hard to even reach, and is even dangerously hard since it's in a desert. Let alone on foot.

This is a good point.

Clearly some people have too much free time on their hands. Also, they want social media points.

Ha, ya. Now theyíre somewhere even more hidden.

All youíre gonna find at Area 51 now are actual weather balloons

This can't even happen, for purely logistical reasons. A million people driving down a one lane road for hours after they land in Las Vegas airport? Parking where, exactly?

It'll end up being like 30 crazies, 10 of which get in "the zone" and get turned around.

They'd have to be wildly fit too. No nerdy neckbeard is going to get very far at all. But I think anyone fit enough to get that far is going to have common sense enough to not get that far.

Even then, they'd still probably struggle through the heat of Nevada in September.

Given the amount of murders and suicides caused by social media...isn't it cancerous enough already?

Absolutely not. I'm far from patient even on a good day.

It should be like instant-feedback. "You are invited to join (Random Facebook Group)!" "Okay... accept!" "HAH! Tumors, BITCH!" Just like that.

With all due respect, Leo. Cancer takes a bit of time to kill someone and is a terrible burden on our health system. Couldn't they just install guns in the computers and smart phones?

Let's say every submission to a social media platform carries a one in six chance of getting shot in the face.

Hey, at least give normal people half a chance and link it up with an algorithm that recognizes certain topics and the frequency someone posts about it.

Sorry, no, political choices not included. But, for example, if someone is glorifying shootings and shooters and seems to often day dream about doing one of his/her own... yeah, bye. Forget the FBI, just let the Social Media Armed Algorithm take care of that.

Yeah, it would make a lot of sense that any weird alien stuff would be in some unheard of secret Area 52 or Area 53 that only exists in legends and rumors.

As for Trump, I kinda see it as, if Area 51 really did have alien stuff, it would be like Independence Day, where the secret is so well kept that not even the president knew about it.

But now I've got this mental image of him pushing people to tell him.

Anyone pretty good at mimicking Trump-talk speech patterns? Because dialogue of him asking about the aliens and pushing someone to tell him that/if they're real, while whatever officials try to maintain a straight face while denying it... plus maybe a Trump speech to the public about aliens... would be rather funny. Would be amazing in animation.

Sadly, other than mentally hearing "the grays" in his voice, I can't sort out how he'd talk about it. lol

You mean the base next door? I bet that's exactly what they did.

General: "Let's move the aliens to Area 52! No one would ever think to look there! We can house them right next to the Magic Bullet and the Snyder Cut of Justice League!"

I've heard now that anyone actually caught trying to storm Area 51 will be gunned down. Lethal force, no rubber bullets. There was a discussion about it at work the other day.
