Marvin claims moon

Sorry, I simply cannot resist this, especially since NASA yesterday announced that Earth, our little green world spinning around the Sun, was missed by an asteroid of 187 to maybe 432 feet in size at a distance of a mere 45,000 miles. They aren’t sure of the actual size but 2019 OK slipped by the space scouts at NASA until their phones started ringing off the hook over the “city killer asteroid” inquiries from the news media.

Aliens (out of staters) are going to invade Area 51 in September. The small, 10-unit motel in Rachel, NV, that accommodates strange visitors who want to find out about space aliens is overbooked. The owner is bewildered.

From the article: LAS VEGAS — At first, the co-owner of the quirky alien-themed motel down a Nevada highway from the mysterious Area 51 site didn’t take a posting for a prank Facebook event too seriously.

Then, her phone started ringing.

“It doesn’t stop, our phone won’t stop ringing,” Connie West, of the Little A’le’Inn, told the Las Vegas Sun.

The 10-room motel is one of few businesses in Rachel, a town of 54 residents now gaining celebrity status among aviation and UFO enthusiasts attracted by the posting about a Sept. 20 event dubbed “storm Area 51.” – Article

Area 51 was at one time the subject of an investigation by Mulder and Scully, as you may recall. It had to do with test pilots and excessive stress and exposure to peculiar experimental chemical compounds. All sorts of legends surround Area 51, including harboring space aliens there.

The rumor started with a prank post online. But now, it has taken on a life of its own. Those who are bumping it up are “planning” some sort of gang-up on the perimeter of the Area 51 base at Groom Lake, as well as something called a “Naruto run”. The original post on social media attracted over one million responses.

So, just in case you’re interested in joining the gang-up at Area 51, it will be on Sept. 20, and there are only 184 motel rooms total in the entire venue of Lincoln County. Book early or take camping equipment, including scorpion repellent.

The sheriff is also concerned about the side effects:

From the article: Lincoln County Sheriff Kerry Lee said he doesn’t expect many people to actually show up, and county spokesman Ben Rowley tallied 184 hotel rooms in the county.

But Lee said 500 or 1,000 sudden visitors could create traffic, parking and congestion issues in a jurisdiction with 26 sworn sheriff’s deputies and about 5,200 permanent residents mostly in rural towns including Caliente, Pioche, Panaca and Alamo.

“I think this started out as a joke but there may be enough people taking it seriously and it could be a problem,” the sheriff said. “Someone is going to get hurt and people may go to jail. It’s not anything to joke about.” – article

Anyone going there? It’s supposed to be on Sept. 20. If you go there, would you please send us pictures or post cards or something?

      Earth is supposed to face an impact in October this year from a 1,115 foot asteroid named 2007 FT3, with an impact equivalent between 18 and 27 kilotons of TNT.

      Of course, it may also miss Earth and come back at us next year instead.

      Pack your stuff, folks. We’re going away: George Carlin.

    I had to ask my kids what a “Naruto run” is. The funny thing in all this is that somewhere in the Pentagon some pore young officer had to explain to a general what a Naruto run is with a straight face.

  3. Peter the Bubblehead says:

    One of the western Jeep/Off-Road Groups posted an event in response to the Storm Area 51 event, inviting off-roaders to meet on one of the overlooks and watch the fun as it happens, popcorn and juice boxes would be provided.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Now that is a fine opportunity to start a bonfire, roast a couple sides of beef and pork, grill the dogs, brats, and kielbasa, make piles of potato salad and cole slaw, put out the chips, cold drinks and watch the fun below, while those loons are down there wondering where the smell of food is coming from.

    This may be as exciting as watching the Chicago Bears win the Superbowl. Oh, wait….

  5. The Other Whitey says:

    I’m sure the Air Force has some super-secret-squirrel UFO-looking test aircraft somewhere. Aliens? Maybe, maybe not. Whatever.

    Anyway, I don’t think it’s at Groom Lake. Why not? Well, it’s kinda hard to keep something secret if you can see it from the fence line. Honestly, I think the Air Force plays up the conspiracy theories, partially to keep attention on Groom Lake and away from any real black sites, and mostly because messing with tinfoil hats is funny.

    Besides, they ain’t gonna “storm” anything. Even if they tried, over that much open ground, they’d run out of idiots long before the security personnel run out of ammo.

  6. So I came to the conclusion that the two early UFO fly overs back in the early 1950’s over the white house where jets were scrambled were due to light reflections from the Montaulk Point LI NY Light House which reflected on low cloud coverage in the DC area. After this comment, I should be nominated into the lame stream scientists UFO de bunker society.

    Don’t these people realize that if they try to drag Marvin the Martian out of his climate controlled digs, stocked with the Venus Babes, that he will become very ANGRY? Might tend to piss off our Brothers and Sisters in Blue too.

    mmmmmmmm Scully! Honey hush. There’s that involuntary vascular reaction again. I really, really need to do something about that.

  8. 1959 found Frankie Avalon singing about a girl from Venus. OOOOOOOPS it was the Goddess Venus.

  9. If the Govt says there are no such things as Aliens/UFO’S, How come we had a FEMA publication at station one a number of years ago about dealing with fire/hazmat incidents involving craft not of this world. HMMMM. To be honest with you about the publication, I tried researching it and it seemed a little shady so maybe a few of the TAH readers can look this up and get a verification.

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    I don’t think the US Gov will shoot the trespassers but they’ll be ready to detain and apprehend.

    Not that alot of young people care about a trespassing conviction on your record but the hefty fine that goe with it could hurt.

    A pro gov friendly judge could really help out the budget deficit by imposing the maximum fine on these idiots.

    • Hondo says:

      Yep. Unless things have changed, past reports indicate that it’s one installation where perimeter security is taken very seriously and is also quite efficient at apprehending those who attempt to intrude.

        Punji pits? Claymores? Tear Gas?

        I vote all 3… in layers (defense in depth).

        Add in a final electric fence and you could sell tickets!

        New reality show? Area 51 Ninja 🙂

        They won’t get anywhere near it.
        Woodstock 50th will also fail.
        Burning man is burned out.

        Yeah, were gonna get hit.

      • David says:

        I am betting the Air Force probably has massive drops of CS somewhere in its game plan.

      • The Other Whitey says:

        I’m thinking of all kinds of ways that bored Air Force security personnel could mess with these 5150s without causing physical harm. Something as simple as spraying water and making cryptic and nonspecific references to it being some experimental chemical agent could put a conspiratard in the fetal position. It’s just a question of how creative they want to be.

        “They sprayed us with alien nerve gas, your honor!”

        “It was water. It’s hot out there and we wanted to prevent hyperthermia. We were concerned for their safety.”

        “They said it was alien nerve gas!”

        “We were talking about something else. And nobody said nerve gas.”

        The crazier they are, the easier it is.

      • Peter the Bubblehead says:

        Years before I knew her, my current wife and several ‘aircraft aficionado’ friends went out to Groom Lake to the area that (at the time) was public land overlooking the base in hopes of seeing experimental aircraft. (They had no UFO illusions, they just wanted to see what was being rumored to be the X-19 or whatever they were calling what eventually became the F-117.) They had scanners with them, so they knew immediately when they had been spotted, and figured they had 30 to 60 minutes before they would be ‘moved along.’
        Within five minutes, several Humvees with armed troops appeared and surrounded them. They were taken to the closest county jail where they were fingerprinted, then told they were being released, but if they were EVER found in the vicinity of Groom Lake again, they would be prosecuted.

    The potential for pranking is. …. Epic.

    So is the potential for a CAPEX of every nonlethal riot device in the inventory, “EPW” processing drills, “decon showers”, etc.

    ” you mean those -weren’t- our contract role players?Ooooooops. No wonder they had such weird stories after they “broke”.

  12. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    I’m guessing that ET (Eddie Torres, the extra-testicle) is gonna have fun alien anal probing the shallow end of the gene pool on 9/20/19

    Farking idiots…

  13. Slow Joe says:

    This is so stupid….

    UFOs? Really?

  14. Slow Joe says:

    Did i get banned?

    I can’t see my posts!!!

  15. Slow Joe says:

    OMG… I got deplatformed!

  16. OmegaPaladin says:

    It’s probably just a boondoggle with guards around it. Do you think the government would be competent enough to actually cover something up?

    Area 51 got outed because the government was burning toxic waste and emitting toxic fumes.

    I once saw a guy with a Groom Lake sticker on their car at a Hazmat training session.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Well, they covered up the SR71 Blackbird for years until something better came along and replaced it.
