i’m currently in the middle of an independence day marathon 🤓 thought it was about time to watch the second but couldn’t remember all of the details about the first one … so, you know 😅
anyway, this little alien based film marathon caused me to do some research into facts about independence day (the film … not the actual day – there aren’t any aliens involved with that 🙃).
#tdil that the independence day film lost all military backing due to its references (well, fairly large focus) of area 51.
if i’m honest, it’s fairly mental who they’ll let into area 51 during the film; civilians, children, a random drunk pilot guy, the entire mobile home community of america … literally everyone 👨👩👦👦👩👩👦👦👩👩👧👦👨👨👧👦👨👩👧👨👩👧👧👩👧👧👩👦👪 <- that’s a depiction of everyone.
regardless, that’s beyond the point! the focus here is the fact that these references to area 51 (my phone capitalises that every time i write it!) actually caused the military to back-track on their previous commitments.
you see, originally the military were going to help out the production team by letting them speak to real pilots and army personnel, whilst also allowing them access into military facilities. once they saw the bits about area 51 and all the aliens that they had there 👽, however, they got all precious and changed their minds #awks.
yet they’re adamant that there’s nothing going on over there 🤔 i mean, i’ve seen it on google maps; it’s definitely out there 💁🏼. although, in my personal opinion, if there are flying saucers at area 51, then they’re earth made aircraft … apparently hitler had one! (strangely, iphone capitalises area 51 but not hitler?!)
anyway! that’s beyond the point and i’m rambling 🙈 we’re done for tonight! if you feel like reading more random facts about independence day, you can read my source –>here<–
ta rahhhh 🖖🏻 #tdil
well, that was amusing wasn’t it?! fancy reading some more (slightly more useful … at times) facts? visit the rest of my blog –>here<–
(i guess i kind of own the image today … i mean, i stole it from apple maps but i navigated there all by myself 🤔 instead of ‘area 51’ it’s called ‘homey airport’ on apple if you want to find it 👍🏻)
