Merged with an old thread with some related top photos.

The old tops collector club on Yahoo groups was called Unidentified Flying Tops (UFT). Unfortunately, the photos are not available anymore, but you can still read the posts:

I might post photos of the customized tops that the club made, but then I may have to move this out of the NSTR section . . .

Cnet and now USA Today reports that the number is 1.2 million who want to raid area 51 "to see them aliens."

I have no doubt that some of the 1.2M are quite serious, but most are just kidding, right?

I have no doubt the 1.2M are (almost) all kidding.
I have no doubt the security at the base is taking it very seriously (and freaking out).
I have no doubt that the organizer has already received a visit of the FBI and discovered that they don't share his sense of humor.

Ah yes, the other men in black.

Looks like they are up to 1.5 million!

My wife sent me a tweet she saw today.  It is from Chipotle and it says "Yes, we deliver to Area 51"

When is the storming of Area 51 supposed to happen? Wonder how many will actually show up?

Wouldn't it be fun if some real space aliens showed up just to mess with the Air Force and the crowd?

1.6 million now say they are going and another 1.2 million say they are interested.  The date of the raid is September 20th at 3am.  It seems like a joke to most people but the hotels/motels out there are getting lots of calls and reservations for that date.

I bet the majority of the reservations are getting government ID discounts ;)  The others will have news media IDs. I've no doubt that they will fill up the hotels and the county will run out of beer ::)

Another article in the local paper today about how the phones will not stop ringing for this September 20th 3am "Naruto run" at Area 51.  Country spokesman Ben Rowley tallied 184 hotel rooms in the county.  Even 500-1000 sudden visitors could create havoc.  The local sheriff said "Someone is going to get hurt and people may go to jail.  It's not anything to joke about."
