Crop Circles Appear In Washington

August 3, 2012 by  

Crop Circles Appear In Washington
UPI
These crop circles were first seen near Spokane, Wash., on July 24.

Crop circles have been found in an Eastern Washington wheat field. Local farmers are perplexed by the circles. The design, which resembles Mickey Mouse ears, covers about an acre of wheat.

The circles along Highway 174 near Spokane, Wash., were first spotted on July 24. There are no signs of footprints or human involvement.

“We’re trying to figure out how they got out there without breaking any of the wheat. It’s hard to walk through the crunchy wheat and not knock it down,” said Cindy Geib, whose family owns the field. “At the same time, it’s hard to think it’s aliens. It’s a bizarre thing to wrap your brain around.”

The circles will cause the Geib family to lose out on some of their revenue.

“Of course, we don’t have alien insurance,” Geib said. “You can’t do anything other than laugh about it. You just kind of roll with the theory it’s aliens and you’re special because aliens chose your spot.”

The Lincoln County area is no stranger to the odd event. Crop circles were found in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

The phenomenon reaches outside of the United States, with many crop circles being found throughout the world in 2012.

    Why is this even news? Kids’ pranks, nothing more.

    • Vigilant

      And what in the blue blazes does this have to do with “Conservative Politics?”

      • JimH

        Were these circles made by “illegal” aliens?

      • Dave

        Is Micky Mouse a Republican or a Democrat?

      • Robert Smith

        Being a rodent it’s hard to tell.

        Vigilant,
        I agree, it has nothing to do with politics but it is just a bit of interesting info being passed on. Crop circles are nothing new, they’ve been happening in the UK and other areas of the world for the past two or three decades, centuries. Some of the more recent are pranks by two old men or yes, kids, but there are many that there is not a reasonable explanation as to who or how they were made, this one in particular included. There has been plenty of serious study applied to crop circles with results running in a variety of different directions. Crop circles are just as hard to understand as our “all knowing” politicians.

      You can’t walk into the field without leaving footprints unless you floated in and out on a balloon, even stilts leave tracks. Got to love how fast people are now trained to ‘dismiss’ something. Like monkeys, ‘pushing button for food’.

      • TIME

        Dear Merie,

        Your post contains great Wisdom, saddly your 100% correct about the “closed minded monkeys in their tight little box’s!”

        Peace and Love

      • Vigilant

        Sorry, Merle, it has been shown in England how it can be done without leaviing tracks.

        Got to love how fast people are now trained to ‘believe’ something. Like monkeys, ‘pushing button for food’.

        TIME is a perfect example of the gullible.

        Aliens? Mickey Mouse? Right.

      • TIME

        Dear Veggie,

        Your closed fearful nano sized mind never cease to amuse me.
        In a way you enbody the true epitiome of Blissful Ignorance, and its just so good on Ya. LMAO…..

        But non the less I not only Thank You, but as well I also do so enjoy you for the humor that you provide for me daily, Now YOU keep up the GOOD work, OK.

        Peace and Love ;-)

      • http://Personalliberty Alberto

        Well said Merle ! I have a feeling contact with our space family is just around the corner….

      • r.p.

        Mr. Burbaugh: I agree with you completely. But this isn’t necessarily the reason I posted this on your reply junction. It’s the cluster closest to the top of the thread, and is basically in response to Mr. Nash’s article.
        As usual Mr. Nash, your story is lacking. It would help if you would at least extrapolate a little more about the phenomenon. Although you did provide a link (which you usually don’t), it didn’t provide any critical information and the representational photos are of poor quality. There is so much information out there.
        Only a handful of them have been proven to be man made. And those were so poorly done it was obvious. There have been thousands of them reported world wide and some have been observed as they were being made. People claim it only takes a few minutes and voila, it’s done. Some of them are a few meters across, some of them cover tens of acres, some of them are geometric, some of them are mathematical, and some of them are binary; but all of them are exquisitely done.
        Scientists are debating whether they are extraterrestrial or inter-dimensional. Some are stumped as it was recently discovered that some circles aren’t really circles, but binary codes that were replies to our message sent out by the voyager space craft about 50 years ago. May I suggest doing a YouTube search for “Thrive” and “Crop Circles Quest For Truth”. They are both about an hour forty five each and are excellent documentaries.
        I will re-post this at the bottom of this thread and try to provide the links for those two videos. There’s nothing wrong with the truth being interesting and exciting. Providing a few more facts can sometimes do that for ya, and you might have received a different response from your readers. But what does this have to do with PLD?

        Maybe they think we as a species can’t comprehend anything beyond mickey mouse, after all look who we’re rooting for to run our lives (country).

        TIME for an IQ check says, “Your closed fearful nano sized mind never cease to amuse me.
        In a way you enbody the true epitiome of Blissful Ignorance, and its just so good on Ya. LMAO…..”

        Skepticism is a sign of open mindedness, idiot. Unlike your “mind,” that is, which jumps to conspiracy theories and swallows them hook, line and sinker.

        Read the D.C. Organic Act of 1878 yet, or do you continue to take other peoples’ word for it that the USA is a corporation? Talk about blissful ignorance…

    • Gordon

      There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreampt of in your philosophy Horatio.

    • RealitySux

      Pretty smart kids, knowing how to NOT leave any signs of trampling anywhere on the field.. Maybe they should run for president.

  • tim

    It would be nice if they took some politicians with them

    • Mike Horn

      Shows how smart they are. Nobody wants politicians.

  • http://peresonallibertydigest.. gottaplenty

    Helicopters! Space aliens use helicopters.

  • RichE

    I wonder how the alien travel agents promote the ‘voyage’.

  • Byron

    This isn’t news, isn’t supernatural, and has nothing to do with personal liberty. Lame.

    • Vigilant

      Agreed. Brian Nash appears to be a relative newcomer to the PLD staff, whose sole job is to pick up anything sensational or controversial in tabloid fashion.

      • independant thinker

        Bryan Nash is just reporting on an anomoly with no obvious explanation.

    • Gordon

      Guess you missed the whole point of this article, huh?

  • swampfox

    Demonic activity,

    • Vigilant

      Yes, propagating this sort of thing for the gullible may well be demonic.

      • Mike Horn

        You mean the government is doing it for our enjoyment??? Another good use of our tax money.

    • SJJolly

      Demonic activity, by demons who can draw, but not write? Idiot-savant demons, perhaps?

  • Beverly Davis

    Come on, Guys. Let’s keep a little humorous perspective on this! Maybe the aliens have been watching tv & decided Micky Mouse is smarter than the rats we have in Washington??

  • anon

    Slow news day….???? Or just another tidbit to get our minds off of what Obama is doing behind the scenes…???

    • TIME

      Dear Aron,

      Think about a far bigger picture than the mundane daily grind / prison we are in.

      We are not alone, its arrogant to even think such. Travel the world look at the massive megalith’s then open your mind to the vastness of the Universe’s, the vastness of the UNknown’s of God’s hand of work he did not give us all the INTEL BUT – he did give us
      “GRACE & INTELLECT & FREE WILL.”
      Thus we as Humans are all connected by a single RAY of SON light.

      When you have some time, please watch the FULL 2 hour long feed of; The CODE, on Youtube by, Carl Munch

      This should aid you in expanding your mind to the vastness of our universe. This is not tought in schools for a very good reason, they want all of us to be slaves to the wrong person.
      Look only to the SON, as well be open to GOD’S clues.

      Peace and Love

  • SJJolly

    If humans are making the crop circles, why are they always geometic designs, and not gang grafitti, or the names of comercial products, celebraties, or political figures? And, how do they get in and out of the fields w/o leaving trails through the stalks?
    Myself, I think they are alien etch-a-sketch designs, applied to fields from the air, some way.

    • Byron

      Don’t bother educating yourself or anything. Just make stupid (expletive deleted) up. Ignorant superstitions FTW!

      • TIME

        Dear Byron,

        Your post is what can only be noted as “CLOSED MINDED.”

        Theres is no Grace nor Intellect within your post, Just PURE FEAR.

        Peace and Love

      • Byron

        Dear TIME,

        Please don’t delude yourself into thinking I care about your approval, your opinion, or your imaginary friend.

        Go Find Yourself.

      • TIME

        Dear Byron,

        I am far from deluded about anything to include what you may or may not be able to comprehend.
        If your “FEARS” are so great as to nullify your gray matter, thats not my problem, {its yours.} And yours alone, – you own it.

        Ignorance is a staple for many, so to is stupidity of what leads to more stupidity and greater Ignorace all based in simple minded circle of FEAR.

        If your fear is your happy place; so be it.

        Non the Less; Peace and Love ;-)

    • Skeptic Al

      In fact, they are an advertisement for “Crop Circles Wheat Beer”, brewed and sold in Madison, Wi by the Great Dane Brewing Co.

    • Vigilant

      SJJolly says, “If humans are making the crop circles, why are they always geometic [sic] designs, and not gang grafitti, or the names of comercial [sic] products, celebraties [sic], or political figures?”

      DUH, because the perpetrators are trying to make you think they are aliens.

      Like shooting fish in a barrel.

    Want to see crop circles? Fly from New Jersey to Denver in a window seat, they look great.

  • JON

    I thought the story should have been about CRAP CIRCLES IN WASHINGTON DC

    • Mike Horn

      Can’t be. The general public eats it up too fast to get it on camera.

  • T. Jefferson

    Has anyone else noticed that with the increased posting your vocabulary and spelling ability has increased? Strange how fast we lose an ability when it lays stagnant.

  • Carl

    This is solid proof of global warming. Or is it climate change? I can’t keep up with it. What is the official line this week?

  • Rocketman

    Actually, aliens did make them and they are mickey mouse ears. The problem was that when the aliens realized that they had the wrong “Washington” (they were going for “D.C.” and not the state) they stopped making the rest of the mickey mouse portrait.

  • THG

    Bush did it ! ……If it were Aliens , they’re racist .

  • Rick

    It is obviously the work of alien Mouseketeers!
