Welcome to ATS. I used to live in Las Vegas, for about 7 years. I had just left there when I became aquainted with the Internet, and more years
before I discovered ATS.
So, I'm not doubting your 'spinning tops' what-so-ever. While I was living there, though, I had come to despise the 'strip' and all the tourist
oriented things there, including all the neon signs everywhere - you know what I'm talking about. So, if ever I did see anything with a spinning
top, I probably dismissed it as another casino or something of the like.
But what I am curious about, since I left there I think in 1999, is Area 51. I never at that time really gave it much thought, until one day, I was
riding with some people, I forget where exactly we were going, but we apparently had to drive somewhere close to it. I was sort of shocked to see
these signs - a lot of them, attached to a chain link (I think it was chain link) fence, that said stuff like, This is property of the US Military,
anyone who attempts to enter will be shot on sight. There were other warning signs that said other types of warnings, also, and I didn't see any
actual people. But then again, we were going somewhere and were only passing by, so I really only had a brief look.
But, what really got to me was the sign(s) that clearly stated that anyone attempting to enter would be shot on sight.
I guess I never thought
that in this country that that was even legal. Of course, like I say, it was a long time ago, and I didn't at the time have any real interest in
government facilities, etc.... but I never forgot what that sign said. Is it still there? There are so many people on here (ATS) who are so very
curious about Area 51, some say they have been there, but I have read no mention (although I could have missed it) of anyone else referring to that
sign that I found so disturbing. I started after a while of being a member of ATS, to question my own memory.
I just wondered if you, since you live there now, would know anything about the sign that I described?
