What’s cannon fodder they might ask. So try. “Weapon testing volunteers needed. Full burial of any remaining remains found. Apply at the Testing Range Area.”

Jeez...
A YouTuber from the Netherlands in search of Area 51 in the Nevada desert was arrested Tuesday after he and another man entered a secure government area while filming, officials said.

The Area 51 "raid": Only 75 people showed up near the gates, only two arrests (and one wasn't even trying to sneak in.) So far only one person actually did try to enter, and was immediately arrested by civilian law enforcement, who thankfully are there to detain anyone foolish enough to attempt to enter before they have to deal with military law enforcement.

“It’s public land,” the sheriff said. “They’re allowed to go to the gate, as long as they don’t cross the boundary.”


Happy it turned out this well.

Not as many people as expected.
The countdown started and ended.
It was planned for Friday, September 20, 2019 from 3 AM – 6 AM PDT.

2 or so arrested, no aliens are there, just top secret planes, unexploded bombs and ammo, secrecy is like in WWII, Loose Lips Sink Ships.

The Russians and Chinese are not our Friends, they are just Frenemies...

Only 150 out of 2 million?

Pathetic.

That 1,999,850 of those two million figured out it was a joke that got out of hand and stayed home is actually quite a positive thing, I think.
