Over 300,000 people have signed on to a Facebook event pledging to raid Area 51 in Nevada in a quest to "see them aliens."
The event, titled "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us," is inviting users from around the world to join a "Naruto run" -- a Japanese manga-inspired running style featuring arms outstretched backwards and heads forward -- into the area.
"We can move faster than their bullets," the event page, which is clearly written with tongue in cheek, promises those who RSVP for September 20.




And of course, memes:

These people do realize that if we had aliens in Area 51, Lord Dipshit would have already spilled the beans on national television, right?

How long will the 7 basement dwellers that show up last in that hot desert sun?

Yeah, I've been seeing my friends post memes about it all week. It'd be nice to see people spend this kind of time and energy on stopping ICE raids or some shit.

I feel sorry for the soldiers on duty if a hundred people manage to show up and do this. Having to chase down a bunch of morons running around an airfield.

It's basically expectation


Vs reality


You couldn't storm something else? Like a drug cartel hideout? They might not actually be able to stop you all

Naruto-running makes humans immune to bullets?
By making yourself more aerodynamic you’ll move fast enough to cause the wind in front of you to break into two different slipstreams that go to your left and right, the bullet will naturally follow those slipstreams.
You have to worry about the possibility of lasers though.

Those can be easily reflected with Japanese steel.

Don't the guards there operate under "Shoot first. Ask questions later" orders to protect the base?
