So says the UK press. The formation is apparently a coded image representing the first 10 digits, 3.141592654, of pi.

These are man-made. Most commonly by this group called the "circle cutters."

They do it because it is cool. And entertaining.

It is not Aliens.

They use boards with rope run through the ends. Then they flatten the crops gently.

Who said it was aliens? (O.o)

Anyways, that`s a really cool crop-circle. Pi>Everything.

Because, as we all know, all aliens use base 10.

some crop circles i believe probably were made by aliens, because on the Discovery Channel, they actually showed a crop circle where all the corn looked like it had been burnt by something to make the crops. I wish we could get real footage of an alien every once in a while though, instead of people in costumes, and something to prove it. As in in the broad daylight with real looking features that could prove it (i.e. misshapen fingers). It would be really cool. lol

The best part about this is that aliens use 10base math, JUST LIKE US!!!! I mean golly, they could be using a 12base or 8base but no! Their math is based on 10s. Incredible. Definately not a hoax.

Its possible it could be aliens... after all, even if they devolped light speed it still takes 1000`s of years to reach a rough guess at where life is most likly.
So only way to get through that it by freezing yourself on travel! So after 1000`s of years frozen to waken on a planet that keeps kidnapping there brothers to army bases, you would be pissed.
So now you don`t want the bad people to come to your planet so they confuse all possible people who could come up with it by making crappy pointless crop marks so they are too distracted by it to devolpe technoligy to space travel!
I think i solved the mistery...

hehehehe ... can you explain that one more time?

smartsketch im not counting but im guessing thats pi to the hundtreth digit? correct? well i dont know if you know this but pi keeps going... and going... and going.
which is why i believe if aliens really did want to impress us with a crop circle about pi, they would have shown us where it ends.
not to the 10th, 100th, or 1000th, but the very end.
show us where pi stops and we`ll believe your an inteligent life form from another planet.
and yes i do believe in "aliens", i just wish people would stop pretending they`ve come into contact and just wait.

cleminem babes ... that comes with any occupation. farmers know farms and so on. it`s not a personal attack - i see you`re from eastern usa anyways. have you ever been to the deep south? visited a farm down there? it`s a stereotype. you`re just gonna have to learn with it. do you get angry at shows like family guy and yell at the tv when they tease farmers? how about the simpsons? really, welcome to 08.

"advanced biology knowledge, where you can go out to a field and identify nearly every plant out there... go to a farm, and identify every one there, with specifics, down to the specific breed"

A biology major probably could name all the common farm plants/animals, down to its Latin binomial nomenclature.... just saying. ^^;;

People actually still believe that crop circles are created by aliens?! With all the videos and articles on how it is easily done by humans, even in a few hours, it really goes to show just how much many people are willing to believe in the rediculous, even in the face of astounding evidence to the contrary. What is the simplest explanation? Aliens traveling through millions of light years to create cryptic drawings in our corn fields, or that a few creative, human pranksters did it?

jason you non-nice individual...i come from a family of farmers, and they are a hell of a lot smarter than you! i would love to see your advanced biology knowledge, where you can go out to a field and identify nearly every plant out there... go to a farm, and identify every one there, with specifics, down to the specific breed.. plus, math. by figuring out how long the planting season is going to be, taking field samples, and spreading the correct amount of fertilizer, just to obtain the maximum yield. so if you want to talk to me about your job, and your advanced job, email me

Hasn`t anyone brought up the fact that maybe the corn did this itself? That corn is actually intelligent?

Pretty cool...I want to take part in a crop circle party and make one one day.

Looks really cool and must have taken quite a while to create. For humans, that is. Why some people believe an alien race would travel hundreds of light-years to draw some crazy designs in our crop fields is beyond me.

To whoever said that it couldn`t be humans because the corn wasn`t `damaged`:

You`re wrong. There`s been loads of documentaries on crop circles, and it`s been proven that the vast majority of them are man-made. They even had the people that did them explain how...they use a plank to step on and flatten the corn, and use string to make near perfect circles...

The wikipedia page is better at explaining it :)

Apple. Some of the crop circles are impossible for humans to create on the ground. Like that alien head someone created. It was half way blurred on one side, and it was created in one night. More like 5 hours according to the owner.

Although I believe in intelligent life on areas other than Earth (as there is little sign of it here) I don`t believe that they would waste their time drawing in our fields of vegetation.

so this, like, basically proves that farmers aren`t the ones doing crop circles right?

i mean, what farmer would know what the first ten digits of pi were, let alone the difference between "pi" and "pie".

imagine 1 full rotation around is 10, so each digit is then a percentage of that, so for the 5, it is 1/2 of the circle, for the 9 its 90%, get it? then each little step signifies the change in digit.

Ah, starting from the middle, look at the curved lines spreading outward. The longer the line, the larger the number. For example: 3 is --- ; 1 - ; 4 ---- ; 1 - ; 5 ----- ; 9 --------- . Between each number there is a little bump

i think is dumb for people that we are alone in the universe when its supposed to be infinite....

even if the odds were a trillion to 1

there is still that 1

and since its infinite theres infinite 1s
