    I really hope this Area 51 thing goes ahead. I'm just going to embrace it now, lets see how stupid shit can get.

    Around half a million people have signed up to "charge it" so they can get inside to see the aliens.

    What a sight that would be. Half a million nerds, majestically charging across the Nevada desert towards Area 51.

    Then stopping for a breather.

    Then charging.

    Then stopping for a breather.

    Then charging again....

    ...then all getting shot.

    In slow motion.

    To Adagio for Strings.

    I imagine a re-enactment of the helms deep battle on two towers were Gandalf and the Rohirrim charge down the mountain at the US forces.

    Area 51 is so well known that surely it is just a dummy by now.

    All the action is probably going on somewhere else, like under a chip shop somewhere.

    #fursuitfriday is trending on Twitter, and it's... odd. Had no idea this was a 'thing'.

    You forgot about them stopping to complain about how much they hate the sun and the heat.

    Surprises me that more people don't keep their seatbelts on. They're not exactly uncomfortable.

    It's amazing and I hope it happens. The tagline "they can't stop all of us!"

    Sure thing dudes, good luck with the

    fucking miniguns

    and

    killer drones

    I'm sure it's fine though, crack on.

    If one were set up a Chromecast at work and leave it there for others to use, would that work? That is to say if I sweet one up using my Google account and phone, do I need to be within range of the Chromecast for others to use it with their own devices?

    Silly question, but if it's not going to work when I'm not at work it's a pointless investment.

    It should work as long as they are using the same WiFi network and the app they are using supports Chromecast.

    Huh, cleared US airport security in under 5 mins. That doesn’t happen often. Far too early for my flight now.

    Time to get a burger as big as my head, I guess.

    Yep, so long as you don't lock it to your device it should be ok.

    I think. 😀

    Shirley the nerds need to deploy their own drone force. A few thousand drones should be enough to overcome any anti drone tech.

    I stopped down the ET Highway for a look (from a million miles away) at Area 51. It's an odd thing in Nevada when you stop at an alien giftshop and it's also a brothel. My missus wasn't impressed.
