Talking Idiots want to storm Area 51.

Posting this up just for ****s and giggles .

See, I don't know what inspires these idiots to do these sort of things. I am guessing these are the left over youtubers who did the Tide Pod eating challenge and then got overly pissed over the fact that they didn't die.

So currently there is a post on facebook that is asking people if they want to storm Area 51:

https://www.livescience.com/65899-ar...mmer-raid.html

And thus far, 200k people have said that they will be attending the event.

Now, being that this is the internet, I am pretty sure this is all just a big prank and no one will be stupid enough to try this in Real Life...

Then again, this is the Internet and therefore there should be a select number of people who are stupid enough to try this in Real Life.

Back when I was serving, our FOBs (or any of our Military bases for that matter) used have checkpoints with a clear sign that said "Deadly force Authorized beyond this point" followed by a nice compliment of two .50 cal Browning on each side. And believe you and me, our Machine Gunners could light up a car in a matter of seconds.

Now I know for a fact that Area 51 has plenty of those said signs around its parameter followed by possible Minefields, Patrol Aircrafts and Security Detail that is ready to defend the base against an invasion. And that is only the stuff we know about.

So for the morons who think they can make it to the base's parameter if they can just Naruto run their way to it, I can assure you, you will not win. The U.S. Military has gotten really REALLY good at extinguishing a large number of **** heads quickly and efficiently.

Just ask Uncle A-10:

You overestimate the collective I.Q. of the Internet my friend .

I mean, yeah its the most moronic thing to do when you consider that you have just informed the "keep" that you will be storming them on a set time, and date... But then again, I lost faith in the Internet when individuals thought that the "death game" was an amazing idea and that everyone should participate in it.

I saw this and contemplating joining the event. I live so far away that it’s obviously a gag that I would actually show up.
I doubt this is real. Maybe a few people think it is but they’ll be upset when it’s only them that show.

This reminds me of a story!
One guy who did tours to AREA 51 was I think fired and nearly arrested one day.
He was taking a bus load of tourists to the very outskirts of the area. There’s signs posted that say “DO NOT PASS” and all that.
Well, he had done the journey there for years that he knew what he was doing, but said that a woman asked him a question and he turned to look at her just as they were approaching the signs that say to stay out.

He went past the signs and within minutes there were military personnel on him.
He apologized for the mistake and I think they almost arrested him. I might be remembering wrong. They escorted them back to the safe zone and everyone went home.

How lucky you would be to say you literally were at AREA 51

I wonder if they will reach the save crystal in time...

Maybe they should try to get in with a quadbike... or better yet as prisoners.
It's not like it's hard to escape from the compound, you literally only need to stand in the window and while you're on it just a single guard will be sent to your room giving you plenty of time to ambush him, free the other prisoners and escape through a hole in the ceiling.

Too late, Lara already used it.

They've got one try and one try only.

I thought this might've been a joke related to TR3 at first
