Video of the Day, The Good Lord Looks Out For Fools, Drunkards…

…And The United States Of America edition:

Don’t go wandering around Area 51 with motorbikes, kids. The ‘camo-dudes’ don’t appreciate it. Also, while we’re on the subject: don’t go to that Area 51 festival next month. The town absolutely does not have the facilities to accommodate you.

Please do not flash mob Area 51.

I know, I know: virtually nobody talking about flash mobbing Area 51 are actually going to do anything at all that resembles flash mobbing Area 51. ‘Tis silly-season time, so out come the silly stories and we all have a good chuckle. It’s just that the silly-season concept, like virtually everything else in our culture that was designed to be funny, doesn’t really take social media into account.

Our critical Mad Science gap.

Now, as I have noted elsewhere I am giving a somewhat jaundiced eye towards our upcoming defense cuts, if only because I’m missing why we’re cutting from the military when we’re spending like drunken bureaucrats just about everywhere else. That does imply that I can be reasoned with on the need for any one particular program. Maybe.

BUT THIS IS AN OUTRAGE:

GATES PULLS PLUG ON DEFENSE SPENDING

WASHINGTON, DC – The Government has been forced to pull back on defense spending. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is pulling funding on F22 and Area 51, which is expected to close within the month. At a press conference on Monday Robert Gates announced his new plan to shift resources from costly weapons systems to the ground campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan

Area 51 is a top secret government installation in southern Nevada. It first gained recognition as a secret government testing site in the 1950’s. Since then it is believed to be where the government tests new and alien technologies. Most of the new and alien technology Secretary Gates is cutting is expected to be in Area 51.

Most of the absolutely critical advances in American technology – lasers, fuel cells, microprocessors, Cheez Wiz – have been generated via Area 51. The salvaged entertainment system from the crashed Roswell saucer alone has justified the entire program, although I will admit that the 8-track tape thing didn’t work out as well as was hoped.  Still, this is an absolutely critical military facility, with endless opportunities for industrial and scientific advancement; we cannot let little trivialities like “telekinetic implosions,” “rips in the space-time continuum,” or “involuntary accelerated mass mutations” obscure the valuable work being done there.

So keep Area 51 open, Secretary Gates.  Do not force me to unleash my minions upon the land.
