I'd be going if I lived in the US. ;-) But just as an opportunity to visit the region, not to storm a military base. As for the Air Force reaction, their job isn't humour...

Not much to see out there. That is why they put it where it is. Desert, rocks, cactus, more rocks unexploded ordinance, alien remains, more rocks. Oh there are some really cool rocks. Then there is Las Vegas. But no says anything about that.

I've got mine from Las Vegas...

Budlight is giving free beer to any Alien that escapes Area51! Sounds like a nice publicity move....

I think Bud needs a basic biochemistry primer... I would recommend avoiding any local intoxicants on alien worlds. May be more toxic than expected. :^)

Another question might be. What Earth might not consider a intoxicating drink (ie: curdled milk) for us to be a intoxicating drink for aliens 👽.

Good point, but then to any alien from some other world everything We eat and drink might be pure poison to them and vice versa, We might only have pure DHMO in common, now that's 👽.

At yesterday's press conference in Los Angeles, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was asked about Area 51.
The Swede was asked to speculate on what might be hiding in there.
- Not another Zlatan. That's for sure. Because he's here, Ibrahimovic answers and laughs.
He also gets the question of whether the US military should let him in.
- I have my own Area 51, the 37-year-old smiles.
His LA Galaxy plays derby against Los Angeles FC at Saturday night.

Storming Area 51 - Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer - Aug 1, 2019 | SETI Institute 
https://www.seti.org/storming-area-51

"The idea for this effort was birthed on Facebook, and it was clearly intended as a joke. But so was Johnny Carson’s 1973 claim that the U.S. was running out of toilet paper – an offhand attempt at humor that triggered a real shortage. So joke or no, the hordes might really show up at the closely guarded federal facility. BookMaker, an Internet betting site, is already weighing the odds of a tsunami of citizens storming the chain-links and, if they do, the chances that they’ll find any aliens mothballed inside. It’s all good fun (unless, perhaps, you’re a security guard for the Air Force.) But should you go? And, really, is there any reason to believe that extraterrestrials are stacked up at Area 51?"

Good old-fashioned reporting using a "man on the street" approach.

The only response I can think of is "You wanna make a bet?" It will be interesting to see just what lengths the government will go to in keeping the lunatic fringe out of the base.


The stormers ARE this government's base.

Facebook took down the page.

Riiight. Well done, Facebook, if your purpose was to convince American conspiracy theorists the Air Force is hiding stuff from them (and not just, you know, from foreign intelligence services).
Gazing at the skies, hoping for contact... Unlikely, but it would be such a fantastic opportunity to learn.

Perhaps: "Needed immediately Canon Fodder, full VA Death benefit, apply within." might be even better.
