Despite millions of people indicating online that they might follow the internet's command to "Storm Area 51" this past weekend in the Nevada desert, only a few thousand folks showed up for what, by all accounts, was a pretty relaxing time. “It seems like a lot of good people chilling and having a good time,” said Dave Wells, who traveled from Cincinnati to take in the festivities, which included live music and discussions about aliens. The AP reports that six people were arrested for minor infractions and two cows were killed in separate car accidents. But nobody actually stormed the gates of the U.S. military's formerly secret Nevada Test Site, which some people believe is where the federal government conducted experiments involving UFOs.
