The original spurt occured bewteen 1988 and 1992. Where they an off-shoot of rave?

Show me your favorite crop circle. I like crop circles. Do aliens make them? Or was it Spiral Tribe nutters?

this one is beautiful. the scale isn't apparent until you notice the little dot in the middle, that is a person.

yeah sounds a bit crazy. another that it was wind moving over a hill and making patterns.

surely it being people is a bit more likely?!

I know one question that's often asked is are there many (any) examples of crop circles in fields without tire tracks, or at a good distance from tracks. I.e. without an obvious ready made access route that could easily hide footprints.

Yes, lots. Or at least there used to be, before they started getting really huge and ornate. Lots of examples of very small circles forming part of a larger design which are isolated in an area of unharmed wheat, several feet away from the nearest tramline (tractor rut).

I used to be quite into this stuff. It's just so weird.

Well I love mysteries and weird stuff but I've never found this all that mystifying really. Maybe I haven't seen the right stuff. Still fun though.

Mind you this sort of thing sounds like a blatant cover story. Why are there no pictures of wallaby circles eh?

They're actually the stigmata of the Corn Mother crying out in pain and anger against intensive agriculture. I thought this was cleared up years ago...?

I guess spelling out "Oi! Lay off the pesticides, you pricks!" in 10,000-point Arial Bold never occurred to Her.
