After Area 51, now everyone wants to storm Loch Ness to find the monster
More than 1 million people are planning on storming Area 51 (despite the U.S. Military threatening lethal force), and now the internet has turned its attention to Loch Ness and its eponymous monster.
Yes, the internet is an entity which has somehow convinced 1,000,000 people to ‘naruto run’ into a military base armed to the teeth.
In the continuation of this stupidity, the internet (A.K.A. 70,000 people), now want to storm Loch Ness.
Obviously, you can’t ‘storm’ Loch Ness, it’s not a secretive military area like Area 51, it’s a lake. Still though, hordes of wannabe comedians and conspiracy theorists will ruin the days of young children and families, rushing into the tranquil lake.
The event, titled ‘Storm Loch Ness, Nessie can’t hide from us all’ is a lot safer than Area 51, though more stupid if you ask us. The mission is to "Find Dat Big Boi".
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) told the BBC that "Storm Loch Ness" will not pose as many hazards as "Storm Area 51" because the military isn't involved and the lake is open to the public; however, a RNLI spokesperson cautioned that there were still risks involved.
"Our Atlantic 85 lifeboat has an impressive survivor-carrying capacity, but even that will be stretched by the 'attendees' of this event," the spokesperson said.
The myth of Nessie goes way back, to 500 A.D. in fact, though it wasn’t till the 30s where it gained traction and all those blurry photos started cropping up. To this day, people still believe the long necked creature is in there hiding.

This event shows us how influential the Area 51 thing is, maybe we’re entering a new age of debunking conspiracy theories?
Maybe we'll should make a Facebook event: “Storm Antarctica: They can’t hide the flat earth from us all.”
