What Happens If One Million People Actually Stormed Area 51?

If you happened to wander into the Nevada desert and stumbled upon the secret U.S. military base, Area 51, you'd quickly be arrested, killed, or maybe even abducted by aliens. But what if you happened to organize one million other people through social media to storm Area 51? They can't stop us all right? Or can they? And if you did manage to get into the base, what would you see?

  • I probably am speaking for millions of people. We're not really interested in aliens themselves. We just want to see what they look like and how they got here and does it still work? Like a museum. People would be less aggressive about all of this had the military just put them on display in a secured museum and instead of telling lie after lie.

  • Awe that's an easy one. One million people wouldn't be able to navigate properly to even get there without being detected. If anything, you guys would end up shitting in buckets and leaving a big mess to clean up later. That's not counting the military response that would certainly effect your numbers. This is where the A-10 is very effective, only in this case there would be a series of them. What a stupid notion.

  • They'd see you coming from miles away after they knew for weeks ahead of time. If you did manage to walk in the 110° heat past the million parked cars, you'd be met with LRAD acoustic and ADS "heat ray" Active Denial Systems. On the long shot that you evaded that, you'd be doused with CS gas from both the ground and air. If you got past that, you'd be fired on with real bullets from real guns. When the sign says "Federal property. Lethal force authorized", they're not kidding.
