The guy that flies around Knoxville in his plane to give the traffic report said this morning on the radio that he could see the tractor marks going in and out of the crop circles.

If they can do a corn maze in the shape of TN, crop circles should be pretty easy.

I think there are just some things that we'll never know or have logic to explain it away. I don't know what causes crop circles.

I saw a show on TV once where they showed a guy that stuck a pole in the center of a field and tied a rope to it and walked in a circle and used the rope to cut down the corn. That's the low tech version.

I'm guessing with a GPS, very fancy patterns can be made. The guy that does the corn maze uses a GPS program.

Just connect the dots. That's the way I see it could be done quickly. Form a grid get the GPS and poof you could make just about anything you want.....

Haha! You would think that the tractor marks would clue somebody in.

Does ET drive a John Deere?
