An army of 400,000 to free the aliens!
A bizarre event is going to take place next month, and more than 400,000 people are keen to attend it. According to a Facebook page called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” a ragtag army of alien hunters will meet up near the top-secret Air Force base in the predawn hours of September 20, coordinate a plan of attack, then raid the grounds in search of captive aliens.
As per the event’s hosts (a page that posts memes and a guy who streams video games on Twitch), the method of invasion would be a frenzied “Naruto run”, inspired by Naruto Uzumaki the Japanese manga character who runs with head down and arms stretched behind. “We can move faster than their bullets,” the event page reads.
Now don’t get all serious because this event surely sounds as a joke, just another one on the page which posts memes on aliens and other lives.
And if you have watched enough science-fiction movies, you must know that Area 51 is a top-secret military installation that is infamously well-guarded by fences, radars and heavily armed guards in white trucks. After more than 60 years of operations, the base’s primary purpose remains classified and its grounds restricted to the public, fomenting an aura of spooky secrecy that has intrigued all manner of skeptics and conspiracy theorists for decades.
This much is known about the base: It’s huge, covering a total of 2.9 million acres (1.2 million hectares) and 5,000 square miles (12,950 square km) of restricted airspace. Officially, the base is part of the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR), which is affiliated with Nellis Air Force Base.
And this may be a joke to logical minds, but what about those group members who have already signed up for the attack? Well, we will know about it on September 20 for sure.
In 1957, Antonio Villas Boas, a Brazilian farmer, reported that he was abducted by barking aliens who covered him in gel and mated with him. But scientists say he was most probably suffering from sleep paralysis.
