    So we are 1 week away from the “Storm Area 51” event.
    Think it will happen, or just be a big Desert Party?

    I think there will be one or two knuckleheads that will do it.

    See this is why we need to take the warning labels off everything!!!!!

    Mother Nature has a natural selection going on and we let step in and curb her actions!!! If we let it happen then all the stupid people will be weeded out out and the world will be a better place!!!!

    Besides, the aliens are really kept someplace in England - I saw it on TV in the early 70's (UFO TV series):

    Same way with dumbass in construction. OSHA has gotten so bad that it’s almost impossible to work. Back in the day you just didn’t let certain people do certain things.

    Nothingburger & was never gonna happen. Pretty sure everyone knows that no one is crossing that particular fence alive. Think USAF SPs are dicks on the flight line? Go screwing around with one of their secure sites sometime.

    Well at least your not using a metal cutting saw, you can once you set up a barrier wall for sparks, have a fire extinguisher, safety glasses AND shield, gloves and a “Hot Permit” from the GC’s safety guy. Damn, don’t forget the GFI

    They caught 2 or 3 people in the last week or so.
    I'm betting there will be some morons that try and then cry after they get caught.

    I was hoping they would set up some grandstands for non-participating spectators to watch.

    Most of those who planned to go were just looking forward to a party in the desert, but there are enough loons out there that some were bound to try.

    What they don't realize is that Area 51 is just a distraction. The really crazy stuff is in Area 52...

    And after you are done, someone gets to sit there on "fire watch" for 30 min.

    The "new Area 51" is Dugway Proving Ground in Utah.
    Dugway is the largest contiguous block of over-land supersonic-authorized restricted airspace in the contiguous United States. It is where all the super fast, high-altitude technology is tested

    It’s where they also test equipment and clothing against chem/bio agents; at least, they still were back in 2005.
