Feds Warn Area 51 Enthusiasts to Stay Away
Why lie? I love the hilarious memes that have come out of one of the most ridiculous ideas of the year. An event created on Facebook called "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us" has taken the internet by storm. Over 1 Million people have marked that they are "Going". What seems to be a huge joke is making a lot of people tense, by a lot of people, I mean the government.
Just in case you're lost on what Area 51 is: Area 51 is a highly classified United States Air Force facility located in rural Nevada. To keep it simple, the security is intense, if you think you can break into the base, you're a special kind of stupid.
Due to the intense secrecy when it comes to the facility many Americans swear UFO's and aliens are being held there. The theories surged after the Freedom of Information Act acknowledged the existence of Area 51.
With over 1 Million people claiming that they will invade Area 51 and free aliens the government isn't making light of the joke. According to CNN a spokeswoman said "[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces. The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets."
