You interest me, young man, given that the higher mathmatics...

of the intricate designs are beyond the capabilities of most people, much less those with so little in their lives as to resort to making crop circles.

One of the reality shows attempting to debunk crop circles challenged a team from MIT to produce an artificial one with the following criteria:

o No more than four team members
o No more than four hours of darkness
o Must produce the electromagnetic anomalies found in "genuine crop circles"

The team did produce a small, simple one in four hours, but that is about it; and, we are talking "rocket scientists" here.

My personal favorites are the chilbolton crop circles, which appeared in fields adjacent to a large radio-telescope. I have worked at facilities such as these. Since they can easily locate spy satellites the facilities are guarded like a penitentiary, guards with automatic weapons, loaded, safeties off. Any "drunken Welshmen" mucking around in those fields would have ended up in a body bag.
