Conspiracy Thursday: Area 51

The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It’s the age-old struggle: the roar of the crowd on the one side, and the voice of your conscience on the other. ~ Douglas MacArthur

Last Thursday, the British Hubby and I started listening to Conspiracy Theories podcast. The next two episodes talk about Area 51. In 2013, the US Government acknowledge the existence of Area 51. Why all the secrecy? Most of the buildings are believed to be under ground. Is it possible there are 51 buildings underground? One for each state and an extra one for D.C. and Puerto Rico. Bigfoot/Sasquatch would be in the Washington building along with Kurt Cobain. Image result for big footWhat’s fascinating is how much this conspiracy has become part of pop culture in the US. Area 51, Groom Lake and Rachel, Nevada are tourist attractions. If you’re thinking about having a close encounter for your next vacation here are a few different websites that might help your endeavor.

Can you imagine having Area 51 as your next door neighbor? Here’s one family’s story of how the US Military has purchased their land. The historical photos are fascinating. Another interesting tidbit, every president since Clinton has signed a yearly executive order prohibiting EPA testing around Groom Lake. I suspect there’s a new breed of sheep grazing there that the government isn’t ready to share with the fiber community at large. There is no shortage for conspiracy theories about what happens at Area 51 and Groom Lake. I could go on ad nauseam here. Instead, I’m only going to talk about my favorite one. Area 51 is the secret work shop for MJ 12 with the goal to achieve world domination. This dates back to a mysterious crash site in 1947 at Roswell, New Mexico. Even the FBI tired to debunk the existence of MJ 12. Every truly great conspiracy theory must involve some form of world domination and government denial. I suspect MJ 12 (many jumpers) was really attempting to acquire the most sought after wool to achieve world domination through elite hand knit cardigans. 013.JPGCat Conspiracy: Burt disappeared a few days ago. When he reappeared, he had this shaved patch on his paw and a toy lobster. Every time we mention the word probe, he looks a bit shifty and runs away.
