What a pathetic way to go to advertise yourself! If they really did do it then why wait a week to say so? To mock the crop circle phenomena, which is very real, to a publicity stunt just doesn't make sense and to so-called hire "experts" from the UK, hire a security team, and go to the land of make believe (Hollywood) to consort the whereabouts of doing such a hoax is just plain stupid! Not to mention the amount of secrecy to pull off this, at night! IF they really did do it, then the farmer clearly was in on it and most likely paid handsomely for it plus he was on "vacation" when it took place.

However...the fact that the circle was plowed down rather quickly and the security definitely raises eyebrows. Why such a rush to plow the circle if it was a hoax? To stop people from investigating the crops and soil? Clearly, once the news broke of the braille and Morse code translations, it was necessary to quickly dub it as a hoax to refrain from the American public digging deeper into it.

Just sad and pathetic how people discredit obvious, unexplained phenomena/mysteries ONCE they've learned (over time) to replicate it (or close to it). Let me see a hoaxer do an elaborate circle, bend and stretch the nodes, lay the crops in an elaborate pattern smoothly, cause EM (electromagnetic) disturbances within the area, inject the soil with iron microbes, and lastly do it all at night, in the rain without leaving a trace. Next, see if the animals are disturbed prior to and after the occurrence and see if the dog will actually go into the formation.

Because people were planning to have a party that was being organised on twitter on his land and he didnt want the rest of his cash crops destroyed.

He noted that the crop circle was made in a field of barley that wasn't being used as a cash crop. By New Year's eve, the crop circle was the site of a local party featuring "something called 'Bongzilla,'" he added. That's probably why by Jan. 2, the landowner just plowed the whole thing over.

But why would a weapon make patterns and what kind of weapon just pushed down some crops in circle patterns and what not? Don't you think there would be more damage? Like burnt sections, deeper into the ground, things like that?
I like the idea though, damn military

They did record this I hope. A company that big could afford extra cameramen on top of the crew used to make the crop circle. Heck, they are a video graphics company lol, I sure hope they filmed it all.

Also can they be held accountable for vandalism or destruction of private property? We going to see any type of justice or double standards?

I wonder if the farmer was in on it as well then...

OK so the symbolism of NVidia is the green eye of envy? What? Who is envious of NVidia anyway? It's just another graphics program that isn't really better than anything else, and a lot of PCs are already shipped with it installed, and you have to constantly download the drivers.

Since they are claiming this as theirs, then they know marketing of pop culture trends. It's annoying to say the least and if they are a reputable company, then they had to pay the farmer to destroy his field.

In essence though, technically it still counts as a crop circle. It is still in a field of crops.

I was thinking that maybe this weapon makes these patterns as a way to calibrate the machine in plain sight of the public.
Most automatically assume it's either a man made or supernatural occurance. This way other nations aren't alarmed by the circles because nothing is really getting destroyed by the weapon. They aren't looking to attract that type of attention. If one nation, unknowingly to other nations, has weapons in space then the others countries would be pissed.

If they wanted to destroy something then all they need to do is turn up the juice but calibrating is most likely done on low power settings.

Crop Circles usually happen in the same areas and at certain months of the year. Most likely that's because the satellite is overhead at that point and the operators of the weapon have fields of greenery to calibrate the weapon in.

Well shoot who do i call to have them test that sat in my front yard? I want a cool design

The only thing that troubles me with this report:

How does a company get away with trespassing and destruction of private property?

If the farmer claims he knew nothing of it as he was on vacation than charges should be filed. Unless of course the farmer was in on it.

There's a lot of snow in Indiana right now, why do we never hear of snow circles?

If the weapon can lay barley down just enough, then why couldn't it work in snow as well? Oh, never mind, for any design to work it needs enough contrast to make the image stick out. But then again, if all one needs is a hole, then they could make a big enough hole for it to work.

I think someone should go out and make one that says "6 months until warm weather"....snow circles would really be fun to see, and then we would hear about the hoaxers going to the hospital for hypothermia.

IF that is the case then what a waste of money! Most people will not remember this company except the fact that they hoaxed a crop circle and spent all kinds of money doing it. And the farmer...just doesn't make sense....

I like this one better. Did the hoax claim record themselves making the circle?

The video gathering and applaud all seemed somewhat contrived.

Those are incredibly awesome pics


Snow circles. I noticed in the first picture where it seems there are footprints, but there's so many of them in a pattern, that would be hard to hoax in the snow. And the tops of the circles are smooth, and we all know that snow isn't that smooth. If this was done by people, then they must know how to walk in the snow differently than the rest of the population.

He wears special snowshoes.

They are made by just one guy called Simon Beck, he just uses snow shoes. He also has a bad leg and he makes the designs for exercise. His designs are much larger than any crop circles you find in fields.

I think what's important about this story is that the truth was revealed on Friday by reporter Scott Budman, but then NBC quickly deleted his article. See my post here.

A couple of hours before Nvidia's presentation at CES yesterday I noticed new articles from various sites appearing, reporting the same thing from the scrubbed NBC article. It seemed like Nvidia was able to put a "hold" on all the articles naming them as responsible for the crop circle stunt.

It's not right that a news site can be controlled by corporate interests. What do you guys think?

Your thoughts were the same as my own when reading. I find it also very curious that the making of the circle was not documented.

I see a company taking claim to something and exploiting it to the fullest simply because they know that they can.

The delay in taking credit for it may simply be due to the fact that they needed to make sure that no one else would step forward with a claim.

Ain't buying this one.

The guy is incredibly creative and talented. At least he isn't trespassing on private property.
