Get Better With Sarah Jaffe At Her Album Release Party, Try Something New With The Try Guys, Roll With The Thunder From Down Under And So Much More.

The U.S. Air Force released a statement this week that it’s prepared for the possibility of 945,000 people who have marked their attendance for a satirical facebook event planned for storming the highly-secured base located somewhere in Nevada.

It’s called a meme, look it up, U.S. Air Force.

We have to admit though, we absolutely welcome the completely chaotic energy our extraterrestrial counterparts would cause.

We don’t encourage you to storm toward U.S. Air Force Pilots, but we do encourage you to Naruto run to everything happening in Dallas this week. — Alec Spicer
