So You Want To Storm Area 51, But Don't Know What Naruto Running Is?

So You Want To Storm Area 51, But Don't Know What Naruto Running Is?

You've probably heard about the plan to the secretive military base at Area 51, right?

Well, if not, more than 1.7 million people signed up to attend a Facebook event at the top-secret - or maybe not that secret at all - base in Lincoln County, Nevada.

The event was called 'Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All Of Us' and it was supposed to be a joke. However, a load of folks have actually turned up today, which is the date that it was all scheduled for.

It became so serious that the US military even issued a warning to those attending that lethal force isn't off the table.

The event's description read: "We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Centre tourist attraction and coordinate our entry.

"If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let's see them aliens."

But, unless you're an anime fan, you might be wondering - what the hell is naruto running?

Well, if you didn't see the hilarious video that emerged earlier, here's a crash course.

Naruto running (or ninja running) is a type of running in which the runner leans right forwards and puts their arms outstretched behind them.

One Million People Are Now Planning To Storm Area 51

Aren't you glad you know that?

It's named after the method of running seen in the popular anime series Naruto would you believe.

However, in recent times, Naruto running in large groups has been seen from fans of both the original Naruto series and other anime fans.

Well, why the hell not, eh?

Oh, actually there is a pretty good reason that you shouldn't run in this - or any - fashion towards the military base at Area 51.

Despite what the Facebook event might say, Naruto running will not - that's WILL NOT - allow you to run faster than bullets.

Quite the opposite, in fact.

There's no observable science behind this, but you've probably got a better chance of avoiding getting shot by not running headfirst towards whatever it is that's trying to shoot you.

Of course, that's not saying that you should attempt to get into Area 51 anyway, it's probably a silly idea and there might not even be any aliens in there anyway.

Lastly, here's a brief but firm warning from the US Air Force, who stand guard at Area 51.

They said: "[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,

"The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets."
