But first, allow me to talk about the enormous creature in the room, or should I say alien. despite what the government says, Area 51 exists, as our very own Fred the alien can verify. Fred crash-landed in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947 and was immediately taken to the famed Area 51 for treatment. Fred was kept alive for decades as scientists researched him using cutting-edge techniques such as cryogenic freezing.

Fast forward to January 9th, 2010, when a seismic event in California awakened Fred. After a year of adjusting to life on Earth in Colorado, Fred relocated to Virginia and decided to start a business teaching his unearthly knowledge.
