It has always escaped me why aliens would exclusively use corn and wheat fields for their extraterrestrial art. Plus, why do they only work during the warm summer months? As far as I'm concerned, crop circles are one phenomenon which I simply don't buy.
Now, one Swiss engineer thinks he has cracked the code behind crop circles. His deconstruction of one masterpiece reveals an intricate (but not impossible to construct) number of circles. Mr. Abegglen believes that at least four humans with foot-mountable boards, several ropes and quite a lot of Swiss precision were required to create this crop circle. Since the centers of two circles coincide with a tractor track, accessing the field was an easy task.
Recent news reports of a new crop circle in eastern Switzerland have inspired me to dig into the archives and share my personal list of the "best" crop circles in Switzerland!

What's your take on the crop circle phenomenon? Do you buy it?
