No, they had three lens to their eyes.

Pretty sure. Saw the movie about a month ago.

Didn’t the martians in War of the Worlds have three eyes?
Depends on the version. There has been many different versions of the aliens.  The original novel they had two eyes
I don't understand some things, but at least I know I don't know

Okay. I stand corrected. I'd never seen images of ETs with three eyes. The flying purple people eater had one eye (and one horn). But all the ETs I've ever seen in movies or pictures always had two eyes, except for the one who occasionally turns up on Shaun the Sheep, which like the FPPE has one eye. It also only has one leg.

 Alien enthusiasts run toward the back gate of Area 51, feigning to storm the gate near the town of Rachel, NV.

Hey, they're not actually trying to get in, so they're not stupid. Just having fun with the joke.

I'm familiar with that desert, it sucks year 'round. If you don't actually have to be out there don't go.

Hay, people go to Burning Man. I avoid the desert. I went hiking in Phoenix once, and it was a mistake. And that was in December. But if these folks had fun joking about ET's, I've got no problem with it. Me, I'll stay right here in Maui. It gets hot, but we've got the ocean. And I have free air conditioning. (Installation was not free. Operating costs are zero.)

And yet, as I said, it is extremely popular.

Do you really think popularity is the best metric for judging art

It's the best metric for judging how popular it is.

You are one of the few people who thinks it's crap. You hold a minority opinion.

I'm pretty sure the majority of people in the world don't even know what Naruto is, and they wouldn't give two shits about it if they did.

I don't know about the anime culture in Australia, but around here Naruto has long had a pretty low reputation among anime fans.

Sure, among anime fans. It's very popular outside that specific community. It appeals to a broader base.

But hey, it's silly for two grown men to argue the merits of a TV action cartoon aimed at adolescents. If you happen to like it, that's fine.

I don't, but I'm not an anime fan, so my opinion doesn't count.
