Is there a storm coming to overrun Area 51? For everyone’s sake, let’s hope the forecast for this storm is wrong.
Books are offering odds favoring the Facebook group that is proposing a storming of Area 51 on September 20th will grow in excess of 1.51 million people.
How Many Will RSVP To Storm Area 51 On September 20, 2019?
|How Many Will RSVP To Storm Area 51?||Odds|
|Over 1.51 million||-250|
|Under 1.51 million||+170|
All odds taken 07/15/19..
Currently, there are more than 1 million on board with the plan.
This Facebook group that the majority appears to be assuming is a joke is suggesting to people that they gather at the gate to Area 51 on September 20th and storm the facility, certain that “they can’t stop all of us.” It goes on to say, “Let’s see them aliens.”

Area 51 is a US Air Force base in the Nevada desert. The general public has never been permitted on site and it’s guarded by security forces 24/7.
It’s known that the U2 spy plane was developed and tested here back in the late 1950s. However, there’s little general knowledge as to what takes place behind the gates of Area 51.
Conspiracy theory groups have been obsessed with the super-secretive Area 51 for years, ever since a fellow named Bob Lazar claimed involvement with projects studying UFOs while working near Area 51.

At least, let’s hope that’s all it is.
This isn’t the ALS ice bucket challenge of a few years ago, where everybody got on board, filmed themselves being showered in icy water, helped bring attention to a worthy cause and generally felt good about themselves.
If people actually show up and storm Area 51, you know what’s going to happen?

Bad things, man. Bad things.
Sign Up For Fun, Avoid The Storm
What’s the play here? Obviously, it’s the over.
If you don’t think that more than 1.51 million are going to sign up for this, then you’ve already forgotten that 62,984,828 people voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 US Presidential election.

Let’s hope that this time, though, people recognize the consequences of their actions prior to acting on the impulse to do something that they will instantly regret.
US Air Force representatives have cautioned that the result of a decision to storm Area 51 will prove catastrophic.

So have your fun. RVSP for the storm. Make your colorful memes. But come September 20th, ensure that the area you are occupying is not Area 51.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
