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.
