Washington Farmer Discovers Mysterious Crop Circles in Wheat Field



Crop circles are showing again in Wash. State. This time dubbed as Mickey Mouse crop circles:

"WILBUR, Wash. (CBS/KREM) -- A farming couple in Lincoln County discovered some strange crop circles in the middle of their wheat field. The crop circle is a good distance from any roadway. What made it, or who, or how it got formed, the farmers just don't know. Video description


Washington Farmer Discovers Mysterious Crop Circles in Wheat Field - Aug. 1, 2012

While not a first time occurrence:
From-

Wash. State is known for UFO activity, namely Gilliland Ranch. Questions remain: Perhaps a relation to Gilliland, though miles lay between locality?

Thoughts?

no, no they are made from chinese laterns, enflating a weather baloon that sat swamp gas on fire and made those cool markings.

Ok, some of the more super complex crop circles do baffle me, yet this one seems way too simple to be made by aliens. Sorry, but it looks more like an amateur enthusiast made this one. If crop circle making was an Olympic event this one would get a -73 out of a possible 10.

or like this:


just joking
I really believe most of the big and complex crop circles are NOT made with ropes and planks

Can't say I fully agree considering I have been to Wilbur Wash.(no offense anyone LOL living there) but hoaxing them in that town...seems kinda, useless?
Unless someone has an experimental side, just not likely in that retirement/urban farming community. Though, press has picked up on the story. The intent?
I do agree it looks, amateur. Wish the news had better pictures, such as aerial views! Unfortunately, while kinda local to me, I probably can't make it out that way before crop harvest.

Why would any crop circle news story not include a bird's eye view? Just the shots they show make it look pretty amateur. I'll bet from the air it is completely obvious it's man made.

He's right ... they didn't appear in history.. they appeared one day out of the blue and a couple of guys admitted to making them, then suddenly they start "cropping" up all over right after? ... it's a copycat thing.. and there are even companies out there that do it professionally .. as well as many many groups who do it for the fun of it .. there's a group here near where I live that do it.. and they've gotten it down to a science, they can be in and out quickly

The only way it could be alien is if they were watching the first guys who did it and thought "Woah cool.. we should totally do this!"

It's an interesting form of graffiti though I don't care for it because it's destructive to crops.. it costs money for those farmers

Crop Circles have been reported since early in the 20th century, long before Doug and the other dude we're born.

Actually they have been reported since the 17th century:
www.world-mysteries.com...

"The most well known positive depiction of a crop circle is found in a woodcut made in 1678 with the title 'Strange News out of Hartford-shire’.
It depicts a devil-like creature cutting out a pattern in a crop with a scythe.
The woodcut has text, which told of a greedy farmer, who, having refused to pay a mower a reasonable rate for reaping his oats, swore that he would rather have the Devil do the work. The very following morning, the farmer awoke to find his crop had been harvested, but done so in such an amazing manner, with rounded circles of incredible exactness that no human could have done the same within the period and darkness of one night. The farmer was so afraid that he could not enter the field to collect his harvest".



No doubt some of these are man made, but many are of a complexity that it would be impossible for a team to accomplish in a few hours by conventional means.

And testing on the wheat stalks of some of these "circles" has had surprising results.

Aliens, Gaia, who knows?

I'm a little iffy of that site.. I would be interested in other legitimate sources.. the first report I'm aware of was in 1686 but even the person who saw it said it could have just been air flows from the sky .. so I doubt it was anything elaborate or interesting .. just an oddity with a potential easy explanation..

The second was in the 1880s where John Rand saw them but said they were caused by a storm that created circular flattened areas in the field..

Then in the 1960s the first report of what we know as crop circles that were attributed to ufos .. and was most likely man made .. then in the the 70s they started appearing frequently ...

Point is, the early phenomena appears to be just oddities, and there were only a couple... they weren't these elaborate patterns .. and those who saw them attributed it to weather.. not something you'd do if they were these elaborate designs.

The "devil woodcut" is a part of history and has been referenced in many sources, "fringe" and otherwise.

My only point was that these things have been occuring for long before the 2 Older fellas started.

No doubt they do seem to have amped up in recent years, and partly due to humans. This only clouds the phenomina as it gives the impression all are of mundane origin.

Yeah, I get you're point. No doubt the early ones do seem to be of basic form, while the more recent ones last, and this century have been far more complex.

Some are man made, they dont have properties that make compasses spin or feelings in people, also the UFO made ones bend the crops so they are still alive, but form nodules where they bend from some sort of radiation.
