Tom Delonge getting vindicated by the US Navy for posting authentic UFO videos really must have kicked shit into high gear in the alien/UFO/UAP community, because people are really trying to get their asses arrested or at least make it on the news in the name of aliens. That joke event-turned-real life poor decision, Storm Area 51, has gotten real. People have descended on the small towns which neighbor the alleged alien-holding-government facility and they are causing more trouble than they’re worth.
MSN says that the Storm Area 51 people are a mess and at least one guy did make it on the news for running through the desert like characters from the popular anime series Naruto. They’re calling it “Naruto run.”
The town of Rachel, Nevada, that has a population of 50 and is about 150 miles from Las Vegas, has had people show up there for this event. The town doesn’t have much and the biggest business is an inn called Little Ale’Inn. So that’s where the Storm Area 51 messes have gone. But do you think these geniuses who traveled to the middle of nowhere to “Naruto run” are actually spending money in the town? No, they’re camping out in the inn’s parking lot.
MSN also says other towns, Lincoln and Nye, had already begun emergency preparations for the expected mayhem going on today. Various federal agencies, including the Las Vegas Police, the Nevada Department of Public Safety, and the state highway patrol were ready to swoop in. Governor Steve Sisolak had his office briefed and is also monitoring the situation. Nye is also the place where that Dutch YouTuber got arrested last week.
Lincoln County Sheriff estimates about 1,500 people had made the trip to party with people who wanna party with aliens.
KTLA says that one brazen, and likely drunk, dude went all the way up to the Area 51 gates and decided to take a leak on them. He was subsequently arrested for peeing on a government facility. A woman was also questioned and detained for unspecified reasons, so his girlfriend is probably also super pissed at him. And honestly, pissing on property is like the one thing he should have not done because the Sheriff was ready to not arrest people:
“It’s public land. They’re allowed to go to the gate, as long as they don’t cross the boundary.”
He crossed a few boundaries. Truly the best quote though comes from Joerg Arnu who lives in Rachel:
“Those that know what to expect camping in the desert are going to have a good time. [Those who show up in shorts and flip-flops will find no protection against] critters, snakes and scorpions… It will get cold at night. They’re not going to find what they’re looking for, and they are going to get angry.”
It’s a self-imposed Fyre Festival. Well the original Fyre Festival was also self-imposed but you know what I mean. Can’t wait for the stories of the people “Naruto-running” away from poisonous desert critters! Don’t worry, you can definitely outrun that snake!
