    No we’re do you think we keep all are 7100 nukes in fucking Area 51 so they don’t want people to know so they try to pass it of as a training base and most of the us soldiers have not been in Area 51 so that means they probably keep a lot of there nukes in there. Facks

    Okay, for those who's wondering what's inside Area 51, inside Area 51 is Dead SCP Creatures yes they're real but they're extinct and no they don't have aliens inside, whoever gets inside Area 51 will be shot by the military. And aliens don't exist. Hopefully, nobody is sure if Aliens are real since there are no sightings of them, or events of them invading Earth.
