What Happens If One Million People Actually Stormed Area 51?

If you happened to wander into the Nevada desert and stumbled upon the secret U.S. military base, Area 51, you’d quickly be arrested, killed, or maybe even abducted by aliens. But what if you happened to organize one million other people through social media to storm Area 51? They can’t stop us all right? Or can they? And if you did manage to get into the base, what would you see?

      The truth is, are we ready to see extra terrestrials. How would we react? Would we want to gain knowledge from the species. If were unable to get along with eachother, what makes you think we would get along with another intelligent species.

      Why is our society becoming even more stupider each year

    • TheGolden Plan54 says:

      @Infinite14 Red6 you mean more stupid? More stupider is terrible grammar

    • Jam Mac says:

      Oh yea the guy made it as a joke. But little did he know not everyone is mentally stable.. i expect out of them 1.6 million + people who say they are going. Atleast 5 or 10 thousand will actually be there. And it wouldnt surprise me if it climbed into 6 digits..And the guy who made the page will be facing some charges if people try to storm the place.. Since hes basically the ringleader of the whole idea of doing it in the first place. I guarantee he is praying his ass off right now that noone shows. Or else hes probably stepped into a big pile of shit

      @Promise EDEN they are going to shut down all the roads that lead any where near that place to any one but locals they cant have even 100k people in the desert in the middle of no where like that without any planing they need things like outhouses and water a way for emgerecy vehicles to get thought and I doubt they will be issuing a permit for people to mass so they can storm area 51 it would a health and environmental disaster
