Binary code encoded in Crop Circle at Torino Airport on June 23, 2015 reads “timeo ET ferentes!” which means “beware of ET bearing gifts!”
We’ve all seen crop circles and heard various theories about them: they are naturally occurring, they are the work of pranksters and, most believably, they are the work of aliens from another planet marking out landing coordinates for the inevitable invasion and colonisation of our world.
But this latest one really takes the biscuit for creative design.
The intricate crop formation appeared seemingly overnight in Torino in Italy in late June – and has baffled locals and experts alike.
If it was the work of moonlighting pranksters it is estimated it would have taken a team of up to 15 people to etch it out in the space of a night.
And very quickly at that.
That’s 15 tight-lipped people, of course, who wouldn’t want to brag about their handiwork after a few glasses of vino.
Which brings us back to the most likely theory – that of an impending alien invasion.
I, for one, welcome our new extraterrestrial overlords – and applaud them on their attention to detail.*
