Area 51

    It seems like something will happen September 20th near Area 51 so I thought it worth keeping track of. I posted the parody song on the SF jokes thread. Since then apparently Facebook took down the original post with its 2 Million followers but has now put it back up, maybe. And the man who started it all is trying to organize a festival in place of an invasion! He described it as a combination of Burning Man and a series of TED talks. Here's a writeup about facebook https://www.newsweek.com/facebook-says-viral-area-51-event-page-was-removed-mistake-ahead-music-arts-festival-1453030

    Well, I'd say they're having a high old time out at Area 51.

    "...a combination of Burning Man and a series of TED talks..."

    Good grief -- is that meant to be a SELLING point?

    John, be aware that when you break the fourth wall, so to speak and comment on how slow the forum is, etc. you make it difficult to add comments. Luckily, it doesn't matter in this thread. I started it as a semi joke as I thought the entire situation of Area 51 worth a omment. I'll be really curious on September 19th if there's a convoy of thousands of vehicles or if there's dead silence out there. I thought Chris' remark was very funny and I will be surprised if anyone else says anything before 9/19/19. Unless of course there's some interesting breaking news.
