From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Glenn Campbell, Las Vegas) Date: Thu, 10 Apr 1997 09:47:36 -0800 Subject: Misc: Area 51 Explained, etc. [7 msgs] ANOTHER THEORY FOR ORIGIN OF "51" From: email@example.com Date: Thu, 10 Apr 1997 01:01:53 -0400 Subject: Origin of Area 51 name I began reading the Desert Rat Chronicles about a year and a half ago, shortly after my first forrays into Cyberspace. I chose area51 as my E-mail address, having know about the place before it was cliche' and hip. (And will soon change it to something a little more esoteric.) Anyway, I found myself answering alot of questions on the phrase Area51 because of my E- address, and inexplicably it suddenly occurred to me out of nowhere a likely scenario for its origin, here it is: To the best of my knowledge, before the late 1950's and early 1960's, the term was never heard of. The US Air Force & Northrup created the base sometime after that, and as you know they were given a cloak of secrecy for cold war and military reasons. I believe that the Old Gaurd Military boys, having the same - "all powerfull and exempt from even the preying eyes of Congress" - mindset they are so well known for, created the term as a kind of inside joke - a Fuck You kind of thing - thinking no one can touch us here - even their funding is hidden in the labarynth of the DOD budget under black bag categories. The United States added the last state in the late 50's, but the good old boys added ANOTHER ... UNTOUCHABLE STATE ... the 51st State ..... hence Area 51. It is so logical to me, that I am convinced this is where the Term came from.... As a courstesy, I would appreciate that I be credited with this idea in the future, as I believe it will pop up in your conversations, after some thought ... I think you'll agree it is a very plausible scenario.

THANKS, MELECIO ====================================================================== MORE ALL-CAPS REVELATIONS Subject: security From: 6 <email@example.com> Date: Thu, 10 Apr 1997 09:48:13 -0400 (EDT) I HAVE BEEN TOLD BE A SECRET SOURCE THAT AREA 51 IS HIGHLY CONNECTED WITH THE CIA. THE CIA HAS SEVERAL PROJECTS GOING ON THERE AT AREA 51. THE REAL NEWS IS THAT THE CIA HAD SOME MAFIA MEN FROM MIAMI THAT WERE ALSO IN WITH DRUG LORDS IN SOUTH AMERICA PAY OFF THE LOCAL SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT SO THEY WON'T INTERFERE WITH ACTIONS GOING ON OUT THERE. THE MONEY I HAVE SINCE FOUND OUT IS UNTRACEABLE FROM WHERE IT CAME FROM. ====================================================================== MUFFLER THEFT EXPOSES SECRET FEDERAL PRISON From: [withheld] Date: Thu, 10 Apr 1997 07:48:09 -0700 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: FEDERAL PRISONS CONSTRUCTED IN SECRECY HI GLEN, in 1991/june in Pomona Ca. at 12308 East End avenue the retirement home know as "Care Manor" was purchased in secret by the dept. of justice? with-out the knowledge of the mayor of pomona, or the city council. in this prison are the criminaly INSANE that Fidel Castro sent to the U.S.A. the d.o.j. went ahead and did this without telling anyone. last year on 12 July, two of the inmates escaped. they were caught trying to steal the muffler of of my next door neighbors car. my neighbor held them at gun point until the Chino police showed up. if you or anyone else is thinking that this is something that I made up feel free to check with the Pomona Police. kinda makes me wonder just how many more federal prisons are out there. in my exrerience with uncle sam, construction of a secret building is just that secret. buying of an existing building or buissines, appears to be the way to go if you really want to keep a secret.
