The wife and I already agreed that certain places don’t exist should our kid ever inquire; Disneyland/world, Chuck E. Cheese and the state of Maine. “As far as I’m concerned those places are like Area 51″ I told her. She didn’t have a clue what the hell Area 51 was so I had to explain. Perhaps the government is doing a better job of hiding it than I even thought.
It is the most famous military installation in the world. And it doesn’t exist. Located a mere seventy-five miles outside of Las Vegas in Nevada’s desert, the base has never been acknowledged by the U.S. government-but Area 51 has captivated imaginations for decades. Myths and hypotheses about Area 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Others believe that the lunar landing itself was filmed there. The prevalence of these rumors stems from the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now.
I’m going to have to read this book and use some of the tactics. Especially when the time comes to talk about Maine.
