Well, we know it’s not aliens or anything else paranormal that create pictograms in cereal crops. Some say it’s art. Some say it’s a pain in the rear. I think it’s cool but it’s not my field. A controversy has erupted due to crop circles in usable fields. Is it vandalism?
Not if they get permission.
An intricate crop circle [...] materialized last night in Poirino, Italy.
Created by crop circle artists Francesco Grassi and colleagues, the piece is called the “LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions) Clock.”
Paolo Attivissimo, who claims to be one of the circlemakers noted in the comments:
The farmer gave consent and was compensated.
We did not need work lights or megaphones. We worked at night, from 10:30 pm to 4 am, and in darkness, using the light from the nearby roads and the occasional low-power handheld torch.
Fewer than 10 people in total made this formation.
Also, no aliens were harmed in the making of this work.
But a farmer in Besford, U.K, is not so pleased with his two secret circular events. He does not like the reporters and gawkers coming to see it. He also claimed damage.
“I was angry when I saw it because it’s my milling wheat crop that has been ruined, costing me around £1,000,” he said.
“We have put signs up in the field asking people not to go and sit in it, but people just ignore them.
So, it is trespassing and destruction if a crop circle is made without permission. Obviously, when people thought it was aliens causing it, the circles makes were not going to ask for permission. All but the delusional these days know that crop circles are made by individuals in a surprising short time period, often totally unnoticed. Don’t trespass. Don’t trample. Just because it’s neat and weird does not give you extended rights on others properties.
