Crop Circle HoaxesApart from the internet, the phenomenon that was most consistently associated with hoaxing during the nineties was the repeated discovery of crop circles in fields throughout the world, particularly in southern England. Fierce debate swirled around the question of who or what had created these circles. Were they signs left by extraterrestrials, marks left by unusual weather phenomena, or the handiwork of hoaxers?
Personally I'd love to think that crop circles are the work of aliens from outer space, but the skeptic in me refuses to believe it. So I vote that all crop circles are hoaxes, if they're represented as being anything other than man-made. The examples below are either universally acknowledged to be hoaxes, or are even more hoaxy than most.
