The original crop circle makers were two old guys, most of the rest are / were done by drunk students. Or...they were done by aliens who flew millions/billions of miles just to p1ss off a farmer.

Paul,

I know this and am not suggestion some little green men did the work. What I find difficult to rap my brain around, how could old guys or a hundred old guys create this this very complex crop circle (s) in one night? Or even a number on the ball young guys at that?

Alan, I am not suggesting you did believe in aliens making crop circles, It was a joke.

As for "What I find difficult to rap my brain around, how could old guys or a hundred old guys create this this very complex crop circle (s) in one night?" are those above picture the original circles? I would have thought (seem to remember) that they were not that elaborate.

How do 'we' know that those circles were made in one night? We only have the farmers word for that, but saying that, i don't see why it should be too hard to do with careful planning.
