Snow Covered Fields
[Return to Topics]

Sorry, had to go investigate some strange lines in one of my snow covered fields. The patterns seem to be somewhat random, no way they could be man made, kind of flat, compacted about 18" wide with two smaller trails on either side, they go ‘round and ‘round the field sometimes crisscrossing. As I walked along the trails, I pretty sure I could hear a faint sound, like someone whistling the tune to the x-files and I noticed some deer and rabbits starring at me. Could this have been done by aliens? I'm sure they must have been scared away, because a few fields down there were some people on snow mobiles making a lot of noise. Maybe I'll stay up all night and watch.

While I was away, it looks like cindi took the opportunity to make another personal attack. Obviously my statement about being a veteran went over her head like an alien space ship. The point was that I along with many others put their lives (sometimes gave them) so we ALL could enjoy our constitutional rights, but then she attempted to silence mine.

I would also say that you did not get as much support on this issue as you have taken credit for. In fact, I would say that you are stretching it by stating that the issue had to do with crops, more like the destruction of crops, which you implied were done by aliens, thus attempting to generate talk about their existence. I'm not the moderator, but I would say that is beyond the scope of this forum, instead you would probably have gotten more of a response on the x-files or alien page.

BTW-I was in the Air Force and flew many hours over the skies of SE Asia, seen a lot that could throw fuel on the fire as far as UFOs, but the military and Government debriefed us and made us sign non-disclosure statements, thus keeping it all a big Government secret, as they've done since the 50s.

For the guy who questioned me being a real farmer, if you or anyone else would like to email me with your phone, I will be glad to talk to you briefly about field preparation, plant population, row spacing, fertilizer rates, herbicides, sprayer calibration, equipment, etc. If you know what you're talking about, it won't take long to establish fact from bullcrap. Maybe you have a stereotype of a farmer and their post should read something like this: "Darn crop circurls made buy them thear alens, will half to git out tdare and do some shootin, us dum farmers ca'nt spel or use grammur two good, you no.

I would also say that the unexplained crop circles, designs are easily made, if you know anything about farming, in corn, the row and plant spacing are almost an exact science, especially with plate less, vacuum planters, with this in mind, I could easily map a pattern and go out and reproduce it in a field by counting the rows/plants, where the plants were bent instead of broken, all one would have to do is hit the selected plants with a herbicide, which would be faster than breaking. I would say that this was probably the case with the design in the field that someone posted earlier, but the herbicide was sprayed pre-emergence, meaning after the corn was planted but before it sprouted, the area was probably matted off and the chemicals applied, then the matting removed, the areas treated with a herbicide would not grow.

Walt; You have to understand that some people like to post on these sites to cause trouble only. By me saying I wonder if you are a real farmer that was just it wondering. I know lot of farmers or should say ranchers and dariy farmers. The area I live in is not realy suitable for farming even tho I have 40 acers (not a big place for farming anyway)I have a hard enought time just growing grass for our cattle. The guys who live around me raise cattle and wheat for grain and hay for cattle, mostly there own. We all can't farm or all the farmers would be out of business real fast. We all do our part in making the resources go in a circle and if it was not for the citys we would only be growing what we need to feed our own faces. This is what I do for farming I grow what I need to live on. No way am I a farmer by any standards but I am a good steward of my land I own. I also like to keep people off it and not let others destroy what I have built and worked for. I do try to get along with others and did not think Cindi was out of line with her post she did. I don't think people should destroy anyones property and should suffer when caught too! Just to let you know when you were Flying over Vietnam I was on the ground looking up. Along with my brother and a lot of others too! I fought for my freedoms along with you and just exsercized on of them in my post back to you. So don't get me wrong in what I was saying to you. Lets just let by gone be by gones. Mark H.

I will agree with you,but you have to understand these people do not make there living from crop farming.So how can you expect them to understand why your so mad?I have farmed for 38 years as much as 1400 acers,and never had one crop circle in all those years.Yes I had plenty of kids cars playing arround in my fields,and don't think it's all city kids.The new comers to the country most try hard to fit in, but never will.I just wish they wouldn't try to change our way of life.If their ways where so good why do the move to the country?You know what you have to do brother give them that big smile and take care of business.You know how we get blamed for every thing.lets not lower ourselfs to that.We have bigger problems to solve.
Regards Plowin

Hello Walt. Well said on all points.

Thanks for the bridge, I will go back to being a troll as I have been for the past several years.

Good luck on your search for the truth, it's out there!

Walt....that was a bridge, and if you are serious, there is nothing I would like better than to let bygones be bygones. You're not a troll, you're a strong willed individual with some very strong ideas. So am I, we clashed. It happens. We agree to disagree. Thank you for fighting for our country. It is a big deal and it is pertinent to everything that matters. God bless you.

You are a class act.

As is Walt.

At least as far as I can see.

Greg (who probably stuck his nose in this farther then he should have)

No such thing. This is a public forum. Thank you for the compliment.
