So, a friend of mine emailed this link to me..

https://mysteriousuniverse.org/2019/07/53000-people-have-pledged-to-storm-area-51-this-fall/


I must say, this has got to be the dumbest, most reckless and generally bad idea I have seen in a long time.

I hope nobody gets killed. Honest.
I've seen a lot of ridiculous Facebook events where thousands of people "plan" to do something daft in some notable public location, usually inspired by recent events. It's a meme.

Admittedly I have never attended any of these events so I can't say for sure whether anyone actually does whatever it is, but I doubt it.
I think if thousands of Australians actually committed mass suicide outside Parliament when they threatened to raise the tax on cask wine it would have made the news, f'insrance. XD

This just in. 53 thousand people abducted by aliens. Vigorous anal probing reported.

Given that they have to be able to move to places on the edges, I seriously doubt they have minefields.

You know, considering its public knowledge that Area 51 is supposed to be the alien place, if it ever was they probably have already moved the aliens to someplace else since it became publicly known.

Nah, they keep all the alien stuff there because anyone who reports on it will be dismissed as a regular Area 51 nutjob. It's the perfect cover!

Re: Naruto ninja run
I was very disturbed when I saw myself* doing the Naruto running in Kenshi on high Stealth level.

I don't know about the tail idea, but the general idea was that you keep your arms straight back and tight against your body while crouched over and run forward. The idea is to minimize noise and size and visible movement. The naruto version where they run like the wind with arms flailing wildly behind them is not accurate, funnily enough.

I always took the Naruto run as a lazy/frugal way of animating a run sequence. Why bother doing all the extra work in making the arms move properly and shit when you can just swing them back and keep them there with minimal movement.

My small-ish town apparently has its own newspaper which, in turn, has its own website. The website is horrible and straight out of the early '00s.

I only know this because the child of one of my neighbors is selling her parents' house. It's not listed anywhere online. Except for that classifieds section, which I never would have thought to check. There are three whole items in said classifieds section - the aforementioned house, a 22-year-old truck, and a job posting for an entry level HVAC tech.

The house is either not going to sell or will be going for significantly lower than the surrounding area just because she doesn't want a realtor. She's leaving a good $50k on the table because she doesn't want to give a realtor $6k and doesn't know how to sell a house by herself.

They've got motion sensors and dudes with guns in nondescript white trucks observing in the distance

Ya hafta run headlong at the barbed wire fence with a luggage trolley to get Area 52 3/4. That's why they keep tasing me every time I try, because I know the secret entrance.

All joking aside, Area 51 is a military research facility located in the middle of a bombing range to keep people out, that is almost certainly home to the most advanced and most classified military prototypes that the nation possesses. Trying to force a way onto it is not advisable to anybody that does not want to die a very early death.
