Are We Raiding Area 51, Or Nah?

Mob mentality can be a dangerous thing. But with the release of the Netflix special, "Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers," hundreds of thousands of people are reconsidering the possibility that the government is aware of and hiding aliens from us.

Are We Raiding Area 51, Or Nah?

The popular Netflix special, "Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers," is interesting and thought-provoking. I couldn't stop thinking that this guy, Bob Lazar, is telling the truth. According to Lazar, he worked at a subsector of Area 51 called S4, where he worked on de-assembling alien spacecraft to explain their technology, which apparently uses an anti-matter reactor to bend holes in space-time that allow these alien saucers to "fall" into these gravitational holes created by their technology. Sounds crazy, right?

Much of Lazar's story seems unprovable, but none of it has been disproven. Meaning that although no one can prove he saw what he says he saw, no one can prove he didn't see it either. This makes his diagrams and explanations especially convincing, as not only are they consistent throughout his career, but they are accurate and sound logically infallible.

Now, though, more than 400,000 people on Facebook have signed up to raid Area 51 on September 20th of this year. People want to "see them aliens." That, and the meme value for this alien stuff is 10/10, just go on any social media and bask in the hilarity of alien memeage.

Although an action like this is unlikely, especially for the 400k people signed up to raid Area 51, I went ahead and joined the Facebook group because if they're gonna go see some aliens, I wanna make sure to be in the loop for that. The consequences of something like this sound interesting in theory but will dangerous in execution. Obviously, the government is "strongly discouraging" people from raiding Area 51 and claims that the facility is an "Air Force training range." Right. I'm sure they'll say anything to keep people from finding aliens.

All I know is I'm buying a plane ticket to Nevada to be on stand-by on September 20th and I'll keep my eyes peeled for those sweet government secrets. 'Merica.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present.
