The alien named J-Rod is mentioned in more than one testimony. In 2004, Dan Burisch (later known as Dan Crain) claimed to be a former Area 51 employee. According to him, he cloned alien viruses at Area 51 as part of his job, and one of his coworkers was J-Rod the alien.
Many have doubted Dan’s credibility as his academic background was… let’s call it inconsistent. Apparently, in 1989 he was both working in Las Vegas and studying for a Ph.D. in New York. Maybe J-Rod taught him how to teleport?
Area 51's location makes it ideal for an airforce base. The Nevada desert enjoys a dry climate that keeps the aircraft from getting corrosion, but that's not the only reason.
When Kelly Johnson was looking for a testing ground for the Lockheed project, he flew over Groom Lake and couldn't believe his luck — the lake was naturally smooth enough to be used as a landing ground. As Johnson put it, the lake was "as smooth as a billiard table without anything being done to it".
Guardians of the Area
The guards patrolling around the perimeter of Area 51 might remind you of the Queen's guards. Well, only if you try to speak to them, that is. Locally known as "cammo dudes", they will not answer any of the questions you might have.
Visually, they couldn't look more different than the guards at Buckingham Palace. They drive around the perimeter in pickup trucks and wear camouflage uniforms that the Queen's guards wouldn't be caught dead in.
You would expect an airforce base to have most of its operations... well... in the air. Surprisingly, though, a lot of Area 51's operations are actually done underground.
All that underground activity resulted in some more conspiracy theories. Some of the wildest ones include the existence of a transcontinental underground railroad system (which would be pretty neat) and the secret storage room containing alien spacecraft or bodies.
In 1996, a documentary titled "Dreamland" was released. The film was directed by Bruce Burgess and featured an elderly mechanical engineer who says he used to work at Area 51 in its early days.
The man mentions an outer-space creature named J-Rod who used to work with him, as well as an extraterrestrial spacecraft he worked on. According to him, he and J-Rod communicated through "telepathic translation". Next time you see J-Rod, give him a telepathing high-five from us, will you?
