Area 51




Just yesterday we were discussing what I’m still holding out hope turns out to be one of the most widespread pranks in history. Nearly 400,000 people have signed on to a crackpot scheme on Facebook to “storm” Area 51, the top-secret military base located near Groom Lake in Nevada. The guy who actually started it is assuring the authorities it was a joke (and begging not to be arrested) but his followers don’t all seem to agree. The situation is being taken seriously enough that the Air Force actually responded to a question about it. While not coming out and specifically threating to burn all of these people to cinders if they cross the fence, they sure sounded like they were implying it. The following was offered up by Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews. (The Hill)

Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews declined to elaborate on specific details.

However, she did issue a warning to those who may be serious about a plan to infiltrate the Nevada Air Force base.

“[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,” McAndrews told the paper.

“The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets,” she added.

Go here to read the rest.  One thing I am certain of, if our military has alien tech it is not at Area 51.  In that eventuality, Area 51 has served as the greatest head fake in history.
