Planning On Storming Area 51 This September? Watch This First

America has Area 51 fever.

Since it was first posted, the Facebook event ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us’ has gone extremely viral, with 1.7 million people listed as going and 1.3 million people interested.

The event’s details offer a glimpse of what’s to come when the ‘raid’ happens on September 20.

We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens.

So yeah, the event is obviously satirical. But that hasn’t stopped a tidal wave of Area 51 memes from swamping the internet.

All joking aside, though, what would actually happen if one million people swamped Area 51? A new video from WhatIf takes a deep dive into this question. Suffice it to say, it’s a lot less fun than the memes.

For their part, the Air Force has stated that “attempt to illegally access the area is highly discouraged”. But should any stormers get through and free an extra-terrestrial, you’ll at least get beer for your trouble.


After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
