DIA Reptilians
Many whacko conspiracy theories surround Denver International Airport (DIA). A lot of them involve underground Reptilians from outer space. Turns out, the Reptilians are real.
About this creation
Please feel free to look over the images and skip the verbiage.



Denver International Airport (DIA, airport code DEN) is the largest airport in the US by land area and the 6th busiest in the US and 18th busiest in the world by total passenger traffic. The cargo volume is equally large.

The passenger terminal's distinctive roofline resonates with the Rockie Mountain skyline some 60 km to the west.

Looming menacingly -- and quite inexplicably -- over DIA's main road entrance is the infamous Blue Mustang.


(Freely sharable photo by Mike Sinko via Wikipedia.)

Known locally as "Blucifer", "Devil Horse", and "The Blue Stallion of Death", the statue is arguably one of the most bizarre and most despised public artworks in America.

No one knows what the creepy glowing red eyes were meant to convey, but we do know this: Near the end of construction, Blucifer's head fell on the sculptor, severing a major artery. Cause of death: Rapid exsanguination.

Had the artist already come to fear his own creation? Was he trying to warn us away from DIA with those devil eyes?

The DIA underground

No less remarkable than the visible DIA is the sprawling underground service complex below. Many liken the network of equipment bays, offices, utility lines, conveyors, and road and rail tunnels to an underground city.



Q: And what do you get when you combine a vast underground facility largely hidden from the public, a murderous Blucifer out front, and an unlimited supply of Internet nut jobs?

A: An astounding number of truly whacko DIA conspiracy theories.

DIA Reptilians

Many DIA conspiracy theories revolved around a race of wiley "Reptilians" said to coinhabit and even control the DIA underground. Turns out, the Reptilians are real -- though not exactly as portrayed online.



The Reptilians were usually described as centaur-like wheeled half-saurians from outer space. That much was true.



Many Reptilian sightings have been claimed and debunked over the years, but 2 underground baggage handlers never walked back their harrowing account of a close encounter in 2003.



Their report had a ring of truth but was roundly dismissed by authorities and the public alike. Also dismissed were mounting but less direct lines of evidence like missing luggage and parcels, lost baggage carts, mysteriously cancelled flights, and food vendors who wouldn't have lasted a day on the outside. The last are now known to have been Reptilian money-laundering fronts.



I happened to find myself in a DIA tunnel looking for a lost bag when the first Reptilian was captured right in front of my eyes in late 2017.



A heavily armed Marine quickly grabbed my camera. "One word, and you'll spend the rest of your life in an Area 51 detention center. Are we clear?"

Well, this aspiring investigative journalist won't be silenced that easily. I saw what I saw, and I can best report it to a public with the right to know using not just words, not just drawings, but LEGOŽ!





The future of journalism is here, my friends, and it will be written in ABS!

What I've learned

Based on anonymous tips from shadowy government figures and hundreds of leaked top-secret emails, I can now report that the Reptilians are advanced silicon-based lifeforms from Zargon IX.

They originally came to make copies of all the "I Love Lucy", "Golden Girls", and "Law and Order" episodes they'd missed. But when it came time to head back home, their ship wouldn't start and had to be vaporized to prevent discovery.



The DIA underground was just the first good hiding place they found. Now they're waiting for a rescue that may never come.

Pining for the girl he left behind on Zargon IX...





To minimize the evidence they left behind, the Reptilians limited their pilfering of food and supplies to many small heists at random intervals. Checked baggage and parcel shipments were frequent targets. With tens of thousands of such items passing through the tunnels each day, a 0.6% loss rate could sustain the population without arousing too much suspicion.



Fishing promising-looking bags from passing luggage carts was both a common tactic and a favorite passtime.

The Reptilians stole luggage carts for their own use like humans steal grocery carts. But they were always careful to put the carts back after a week or so. To the authorities, it just looked like the carts had been temporarily misplaced in the vast DIA labyrinth.





I should mention that the silent wheeled platforms the Reptilians ride on aren't vehicles. They're an integral part of the body -- a genetically engineered biomechanical mobility system designed to minimize sounds and other vibrations that might give their movements away.







Being silicon-based, the Reptilians subsisted mainly on silicon-rich items harvested from the baggage and package streams.

The tasty concrete lining the entire DIA underground was a constant temptation. The Reptilians were too smart to nibble, but 82% of all Reptilians now suffer from RKBS (Repetitive Knuckle-Biting Syndrome).



Staples of the Reptilian diet at DIA included glass bottles, fancy camera lenses, silicone hair bands, and laptops with lots of silicon chips.



To the Reptilians' delight, the many geologists coming through DIA brought home lots of silicon-packed rocks for their labs and private collections.

Bottles containing cosmetics and duty-free beverages were greatly relished for their added zest.



Items rich in silicon-compatible minerals like aluminum, titanium, iron, copper, and gold provided essential nutrients.





The Reptilians never got out much, but they enjoyed watching the planes fly overhead when they did.



Perhaps they'll fly home one day, too.

Quoting Oliver Becker I don't know if wild conspiracies are the reason for preventing the opening of the "new" Berlin Airport! I think, german inhability is the only reason for... ;) The bigger the project, the bigger the inhability! LOL ;) Great you got deserved response here...! Whoopee! :)
Thanks, my friend! You know, that new Berlin airport probably has a big undeground, too. One possibility for all the delays: Unseen Reptilians snatching and eating critical building materials. The German public would be the last to know.

Quoting Tom Remy :D The only real monster in Denver seems to be that giant horse, no need to make up new ones!
You can see why Blucifer's so well loved around here. ;^} (What on earth was the Regional Arts Council thinking??) Conspiracy theories 101: The more scary things for the dupes out there to swallow, the better.

Quoting Nick Barrett Well, that explains a lot. Do you think these guys are under Heathrow as well ? As for that Blucifer... yikes!
Don't see why not. They settled the DIA underground first, but lots of big jets fly nonstop from DIA to Heathrow. Means, opportunity, motive (tasty English china for one thing).

Quoting Oliver Becker Excellent report about the DIAbolic aliens at Denver- airport, my friend! Your DIAmetric investigations and your famous replicas of your sighting will revolutionize the paranormal research all over the word! Please come to Germany/Berlin and look for the new(?) airport... ;) LOL
Too kind, Oliver! As you can see, I've been studying your methods, though still far behind the master. Do German airports also attract wild conspiracy theories?

Quoting jds 7777 Conspiracy theories? Reptiles on wheels? Legos? Sounds like Mr. Jeremy McCreary's back at it again!
The Reptilians mean us no harm and have much to share. For starters, they have some great ideas for new sitcoms. I just felt a journalistic obligation to tell their tragic story the best I could, and to help them find a place on a planet they'll probably never be able to leave.

Quoting Gabor Pauler Jeremy, I have the feeling that your reptilian figure's head strongly resembles to President Trump looking from certain angle. Was it intentional?
Speaking on behalf of Reptilians everywhere, I must stenuously object. The Reptilians are commited to the peaceful spread of decency, informed critical thinking, and democracy throughout the Galaxy. Any resemblance to the American Three-Year-Old-Sociopath-in-Chief is purely coincidental. In fact, they wince every time they see that comb-over.

I'll have you know that the DIA conspiracy theories started long before Colorado legalized you-know-what. But Reptilian sightings did pick up a good bit afterward.
