'Although farming practices, production systems and type of farms are diverse, there are commonalities across the farms, which are important to health. Most farms continue to be family-owned and operated business and are exposed to the volatility of commodity markets, the variability of weather patterns and the influence of respective government regulations.

Farmers are thus exposed to a high rate of stress. Physical stressors and hazards of the farm environment are compounded by regulatory framework and economic dynamics of managing farm business. These operate in the context of declining trends of trade for agricultural produce, volatile commodity markets, limited availability of off-farm employment, growing cost of machinery and production and loss of farm or livelihood due to crop failures.[2] Economic concerns and government bureaucracy have been consistently identified as a major cause of stress and a contributor to suicide.'

I'd opine that a couple of drunken halfwits/aliens ruining your crops when the mood takes them is also a contributory factor in these suicides.

So, extraterrestrial's thinking and behavior has to be exactly like ours? Does that seem likely? I can imagine a number of reasons why crop circles could be their preferred method of communication with us.

Oh yeah? LOL
Ridiculous.

The only "communication" with these crop circles is the communication between the hoaxers and the gullible believers, if you can call it that.

I agree that the majority of circles must have been made by hoaxers. But who were the first hoaxers imitating?

Also the first recorded crop circle in england was 1678. If this was a hoax, what purpose did it serve?

Same purpose as now?

When crop circles first appeared they were quite simple. I thought if it did have something to do with aliens is was where they landed their ships and a perfect place would be a farm fields because they're flat for efficient irrigation so there wouldn't be any surprises in the terrain that would tip the ship. Crop circles seem to be graphic art these days.

I know you're trying to be funny, but your aim is off. The person in the article was attempting to give his view, with the best supporting evidence he could find.

Not because "boom, I say so".

Jeffertonturner said it, this blog says so, I believe it and that settles it!

Why did they have to imitate anyone?  You know, someone, somewhere, has to be the first to do something.

I'm also finding it kind of interesting that there seems to be this implication that folks didn't play pranks or **** with each other back in the day.  You know, punking was around for hundreds of thousands of years before Ashton Kucher came along.

The geometric shapes i find more brilliant than the "how/who/why" factor... There is something truely magic behind the phenomena regardless of its origens

I would be more impressed if the so-called UFO's, instead of making silly, meaningless crop circles, would instead harvest the entire field for the owner.

Not dissimilar to the 'challenge' a few of us in the CCCS put together to test the cosmic joker and/or circle-makers, in either 1993 or 1994 - probably the latter.  If the circles/pictograms were made by some intelligence utilizing energy (by technology or otherwise), to demonstrate this all they had to do was flatten an entire field leaving a standing circle formation - still waiting for them to oblige.

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?

while these are simply remarkable why would aliens make these
Because IF it was alien, They would make these designs to be understood mathmatically and symboliclly.  Why do it in a field?  Well its much harder to hide messages that are on the ground for everyone to see, rather than send an electronic signal that would only be heard by a few.  Seems like a simple way to communicate to everyone.

Consider that our understanding of the universe both large and small has come a long way since they first appeared.  Why send a complex message to people who wont be able to interpet it?  IF and i say IF... it is aliens i think you will find that in the future they even more complex than they are today.

yes all crop circles are all man made. What we need to realise is that we as society has a suffering called mental illness, and that is why there are so many crazy things happening in our world

So in 1678 someone created a circle with some ropes and boards. Then spontaineously 300 years later, someone else did the same, which gained some attention and started the worldwide craze. I am glad we sorted that one out. No more discussion! My mind is closed!
(please read the above with sarcasim)

I don't know if there are any "real" circles or not. What i do know is that; you don't know either.
