Hi,
Area 51 was my first experience with the extraterrestrial/paranormal.  And I fell in love and have traveled to other interesting places ever since.  I'm not saying you will definitely see a UFO or anything unexplained, but it will open your mind to all the possibilities.  A must visit for any skeptic!  I would also like to share my video of the experience.

What was it that we are supposed to be seeing in this video?  It's like watching a slide show if somebody's wierd vacation.

Well that settles it.  I'm a true believer now.

Sorry I didn't mean it contained anything amazing, I just think its a good place to visit for the nonbelievers or people still on the fence.

i think it's overdramatized.
area 51, if anything, is a mind game the government is playing with you. while you're nosing around there they're doing something clandestine in another area.
bait.
and you bit.

Didn´t see anything in the video to make me a "believer". Me thinks you may have eaten too much of that alien fresh jerky! :alien:  

The only mysterious thing I saw was the shade of "black" on the mailbox.

Nice scenery along the drive though. Oh....I think I've solved the mystery as to what the huge tires are for...... really big trucks :devil:

Perhaps I would´ve enjoyed your vacation video more if I knew you personally.

Absolutely they can.  But don't label the video as something all skeptics should see, because it will open minds to the possibilities..etc, etc.  

And guess what (this is for the OP) - go to any military base, anywhere and if you don't have someone authorized in your vehicle or you don't have some kind of clearance yourself, chances are you are not getting in.  Not being allowed entrance to an area for authorized personnel isn't exactly the same thing as proof of ET.

All he said was ,it was an experience for me,and i think everyone should see it.
He didn't say ET greeted me and gave me biscuits and tea.
You guys are just so DOWN on anyone who doesn't share your lead coated opinions,that only what YOU can see and hear is real.
Everyone else is a stupid crack pot,if they believe in things greater than heaven and earth .

Some people are just inspired ,and like to share it,because they are enthusiastic.
Some of us,do not find fault with that,and do not judge .

Miss me?

I'm not sure exactly where you are getting that I was judging anyone, I was offering a counterpoint.  Sometimes that is what we skeptics must do - offer a counterpoint to balance out the people who indiscriminately believe any claptrap they find on the Internet, regardless of its credibility or merits.  I never called anyone a stupid crackpot either.   Sounds like you are experiencing some reactionary blowback  from having your beliefs questioned in other threads.  I hope you feel better now that you've vented your frustrations all over myself, someone who has never  bothered you, at least that I recall.

And all HE said was to clarify that there was nothing much in the video that would justify the 'it will open your mind' and 'must vist for any sceptic' bit.  I THANK orangepeaceful for that.

And in turn, no-one said he did.  Please look up 'strawman'.

Gee, Simbi, you are just so DOWN on anyone who doesn't share your helium-filled opinions, that only what YOU *believe* is worthy of note.  Note that yours is by far the most aggro post here..

NO ONE said that.  Look up 'putting words in other's mouths' and /or 'strawman' again.

That's fine.  But what is even finer, is to accept criticism/review on the chin and accept that others have a right to express their views.  Yes, even if they disagree with you {gasp} - I know that's hard to believe, but there it is.

Some of us feel that is better to use a bit of logic and rationality, in order to avoid:
- buying bridges
- sending money to Nigeria
- giving your bank account details in order to claim your prize from Microsoft
and
- wasting too much time on forums following random links

And it is hard to not notice the irony of an awful lot of 'judging' in your post.  But I guess it only applies one way..


Anyway, back on topic - my personal recommendation, if you want to get a better feel for Area 51 - see PAUL.    :alien:    :lol:

But did you see the tires?  Those were some big freaking tires man.

Well then simply say "hey guys, my buddy and I drove out to Area 51 and it was really cool.  Check out the vid"

Don't allude to life changing experiences for skeptics.

Did anyone see the part where the guy in the video was being shot at? Even the cracked glass at 10:25-26 was poor quality CGI.

I'm pretty sure if your front screen was shot it would completely shatter, and wouldn't magically repair itself.
