For months now, the hype around storming Area 51, Nevada had been building up. And now the day has finally come when the common man finds his way into the secured facility and interact with real aliens.
Let me jog your memory a bit. In July, a Facebook event was posted and it went absolutely viral, with tons of people around the world signing up to 'see them aliens'.
The description read:
We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we Naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let's see them aliens.
Mind you, Area 51 is a highly secured base of the United States Air Force. Spokesperson Laura McAndrews had told The Independent:
[Area 51] is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces. The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.
But the internet, being the internet, has actually shown up to the event.
Now, don't get too excited. There are no aliens there. Just a group of highly trained men and women in uniforms with large guns. So nobody is actually storming shit.
