Source: Time Magzine http://tinyurl.com/a8do3sl Feb. 02, 2013 Are Crop Circles More Than Just Modern Pranks? By Yue Wang A Tasmanian historian used Google Earth images to argue that crop circles, which are often dismissed as jokes taken too far, are not simply a modern hoax, according to the Huffington Post.

The two “ jovial con men in their 60s,” as described by a local newspaper at the time of the revelation, demonstrated in front of groups of journalists how they trampled out the patterns that were often attributed to aliens, reported the New York Times.
