Crop circles appear in E. Washington wheat field

Jul 31, 2012 Full story: WDBO-AM Orlando 40

Mysterious crop circles have appeared in an eastern Washington wheat field - not far from the nation's largest hydropower producer - but area farmers preparing for the summer's harvest find the distraction more amusing than alarming.

WRONG:.........
On their side, skeptics have cold rationale and the confessions of such crop circle creators as Doug and Dave in the UK. In 1992, Doug Bower and Dave Chorley, two somewhat elderly retirees, came forward and claimed that they had created hundreds of crop circles over the preceding 15 years using a plank of wood, rope and a baseball cap fitted with a loop of wire to help them walk in a straight line. While their claim is called into serious question by some researchers, it is unquestioned that many crop formations have been "hoaxed" by people using little more than a well-planned design and, yes, planks of wood and rope. Such hoaxers have proved before witnesses and television cameras that they can create large, elaborate designs at night in just a few hours.
Not to go into debate on it but briefly, because great minds don't always think alike,.. hee he, but while many hoaxers and fakers abound, not all formations can be explained away.
And, aside from Doug and Dave, few admitted hoaxers are exposed, so ask yourself, "As complicated, time consuming, huge, artistic and mathimatical as many of these overnight crop images are, how likely is it men, and men alone, are responible for "all" of them? How likely is it, with modern day surveilance everywhere now, the forming of the circles go unrecorded? And, if they were all man made, how likely is it the attention seeking creators would keep silent and avoid credit for their creations? Knowing human nature as we do, I say very unlikely.

Besides, certain genetic changes, heat bend signature and bend characteristics of many formations remain a mystery.

My opinion on crop formations,?... many questions must be answered with hard data before an opinion should become accepted belief.

But skeptics love confessed scammers. What the hoax case does is prove that particular inccident a hoax. It doesn't prove all formations are man made. In fact, collected data from case studies suggests other wise.

They admitted to doing some in England a decade or two ago.

And those really were the basic circular type.

I gather you haven't been following the thread.

PSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSST :
A crop circle is a sizable pattern created by the flattening of a crop such as wheat, barley, rye, maize, or rapeseed. Crop circles are also referred to as crop formations, because they are not always circular in shape. The documented cases have substantially increased from the 1970s to current times. In 1991 two hoaxers confessed and claimed authorship of circles throughout England.

Congress finds that the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note), signed into law on September 18, 2001, has been used to justify a broad and open-ended authorization for the use of military force and such an interpretation is inconsistent with the authority of Congress to declare war and make all laws for executing powers vested by the Constitution in the Government of the United States.

I'm going to have to if you don't stop causing problems for the farmers.

You may need some adjustments and a lube job!:P
