The truth is out there in the Nevada desert, and there are thousands of conspiracy theorists ready to find it.
Nearly 300,000 people have signed up to march on the world-famous Area 51 in September, as part of a tongue-in-cheek effort to search the secretive government base for evidence of aliens and unidentified flying objects (UFOs).
More than 287,000 users have already signed up for the event, with another 313,000 expressing interest in attending.
“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” the group’s organizer wrote. He suggests that if everyone runs head-long at the base, “we can move faster than their bullets.”
The Area 51 raid is set to be held at 3 a.m. on Sept. 20.
“Let’s see them aliens,” the group description says.
The event appears to be a massive inside joke, with thousands of users posting tongue-in-cheek plans of attack on the discussion page.
