You are _assuming_ that all crop circles since the 80s or so are

Again, showing how unfamiliar you guys are with the subject.
There have been several accounts of crop circles in trees in
different countries over the years, including Canada. I even
reported two more in the Northwest Territories in 2004. They
have also been found in marshes, reeds, etc. And no, they are
_not_ always beside roads. Often, yes, but not always. In North
America, there have also been formations in thickly planted
fields (with no tramlines), with no tracks at all through the
standing crop. I've seen this myself.

Maybe you should stick to ufology, instead of thinking that you
are experts in all these other subjects as well. Just a
