185,000 truth seekers pledge to storm Area 51

A large number of social media users have reportedly committed to rushing in to the facility at the same time.
The questionable venture, which is scheduled for September 20th at 3am, will see attendees meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center in Amargosa Valley, Nevada before moving on to the base itself en masse.

Entitled 'Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us', the ill-advised plan, which aims to find evidence of aliens at the base, was first posted up on Facebook by the user 'SmyleeKun'.

As of writing there are 185,000 people signed up to attend and a further 220,000 who have registered their interest, however it is unclear how many of them will actually turn up on the day.

Given that Area 51 is well known for its armed security patrols, it is difficult to imagine what would happen if even a small fraction of those signed up actually did attempt to storm the base.

It is also highly unlikely that the stunt would yield any useful information about the facility.

Suffice to say, rushing headlong through the gates of Area 51 is really not a good idea.

The last idiot has not been born yet.  I strongly advice those contemplating if they're going to storm Area 51 not to do so and pick up a hobby.

It was already confirmed as a hoax, but it has been fun to talk about.

Now that's place people would want to storm. Possibly even breaking in the back door.

Well, there's still a lot of traffic to/from Las Vegas. Look up Las Vegas International on a flight tracker and look out for the 'Janet' flights that usually show their destination, if they show a destination at all, as TonopahTest Range.

I wouldn't mind if they all got shot.  Too many idiots as it is.

I have found that the back door is vulnerable to sneak attacks at that base....
