Pack your shades, your sunscreen and your coziest tinfoil hat, because the late-summer event of the season is happening in Nevada's scenic Area 51, and you're invited.
According to a tongue-in-cheek Facebook event called "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us," a ragtag army of alien hunters will meet up near the top-secret Air Force base in the predawn hours of Sept. 20, coordinate a plan of attack, then raid the grounds in search of captive aliens. Per the event's hosts (a page that posts memes and a guy who streams video games on Twitch), the delicate operation will involve running supernaturally fast — faster than the guards' bullets can fly — but will be worth it to "see them aliens."
So far, nearly 265,000 Facebook users have signed up to attend, with another 295,000 "interested" in the affair and 600.000 invited. This whole idea is so dumb, but i dont doubt a lot of people will indeed show up (like in previous crazy events like this)
But i really doubt it will go that far, either the entire base will get on lockdown or they will find a way to get rid of the crazy people who will show up. Area 51 would be the worst place to actually store aliens in the USA, if they do, there's probably a #on of better places that doesnt actually get as much as unwanted attention as Area 51.
