Netfliks-crop circles.

Im a convert.
No way can some of the designs be man made, particularly giving the conditions, complexity and short time of construction

Cant imagine the authorities ignoring this, A geostationary Satellite with magnifying ability must have been employed during the season and yet theres silence,

while down the road that er-slum, stone henge, is examined and investigated and coooed over. despite more impressive structures in other parts of the world preceding it.

There goes my wish for a pagan burial.

Re: Netfliks-crop circles.

Most crop circles by here are made by Tubby Thoroughgood and his his mates from the Young Farmer's club.

There are a few less well know circle makers, some of whom cheat by using geo-positioning surveying sticks, but Tubby still uses the tried and tested method of walking into a field backwards, and marking out using surveying height rods and theodolite.
For the circles themselves, he uses a horizontal plank on a rope round his neck so he can bend down, stand on the plank, then stand up before taking a plank-width step back and repeating the process.

His mates help with the more complicated designs using their own planks, and all using the same plan. These used to be drawn and copied by hand, but now they are drawn using a CAD programme so the circle makers (who must be members of a Guild) can keep up with demand.

Different techniques have to be used of course for different types of crops. You need bundles of Willow Rods tied together for parting maize plants because the stalks are too tough to bend in groups using the plank method.

As for Stonehenge, the grant for the original structure was cancelled, so the builders just abandoned the scaffolding since they weren't paid after that.

Re: Netfliks-crop circles.

Some maybe.

But creatives cant help boasting.

Im well versed in cad, id like to know how one co-ordinates marks and directs plankers in hours to cover football fields faultlessly with precision.

The best certified man made creations look good until examined up close.

I will keep an open mind.

I am reminded of the puzzling underwater sand designs, until it was discovered a small fish was engaged in courting a mate.

Im expecting something equally left field and ...might be by a curious as yet unknown human technique.

I love that, Fruitcake. Brilliant!

Re: Netfliks-crop circles.

I haven't heard of any crop circles for quite a few years now.
Are they still happening at harvest time?

Claims that crop patterns resulting from paranormal activity or anything made other than the activities of people is bunkum.

Re: Netfliks-crop circles.

Meh, crop circles are old news.

They laid out the plans for the Pyramids with no more than string with knots in it and some sticks. I'm sure people could manage a few complicated-looking crop circles with camera drones, GPS and laser-measuring tools.
