Photo Top secret gas engines at Area 51

No I'm not joking there are actually gas engines at Area 51. I've heard about a small chunk of area 51 that remained in private hands before, this was because of long standing mine claims going back to the 1800's. But I've never really heard much more than that due to the miner having high level security clearance, again I'm not kidding. Well now the air force wants the mine owners gone, and here are some pictures thanks to the lawsuit!

Some years back I met a veterinarian that used to work out there studying the effects of nuke testing on the wildlife, he told me that there are numerous old mine sites out there that are very well intact.

That's quite an interesting site!. Did anyone look at the 4th from last photo?, It seems to be a FM 2cyl horizontal semi diesel engine-I didn't know such a thing was made and would like to know more. Kind of a sad story couldn't find out if the owners ever got payment and there stuff moved or not. Also it's mean to post stuff like that when I can't go see or get it!.

Those government thugs need to be personally stripped of their assets and imprisoned. Maybe their replacements will be a little more gawddamned respectful of the citizens they SERVE.
