It's all fun and games until you touch it and then decide to bash in someone's head with a bison femur. I saw it in a documentary once.

Geesh, is this the type of stuff Trumpers post on Parler?

The helicopter scene really adds to the credibility.

I like everything about this except it happened in 2020. If it was any other year I'd be thinking "oh how cool! What a great location for an art installation!" "Awesome!"

But 2020?

I'm wondering when are the aliens coming to enslave, slaughter, or eat us.

I'm still trying to figure out how the thing got buried in the rock... in isolation... out in the middle of nowhere... by whom or what... with no visible damage to the structure from its installation... without anyone ever leaving a clue to its existence... or purpose...

Weird.

@#6 ... I'm still trying to figure out how the thing got buried in the rock... in isolation... out in the middle of nowhere... ...

The 'how it was buried' is easy.

The location makes it interesting.

It probably cost a good nickel to get the machinery to that location to install it in the rock.

I wonder how long ago it was done, and whether the person(s) responsible are even still alive to see the reaction to their prank.

Whoever or whatever did this I'm glad they did.

The sooner we get back to the normal timeline the sooner we will be ready to explore our solar system and if Intelligent life from somewhere else has ever visited earth they likely left proof of their visit on another celestial object knowing that by the time we found it we would be ready to interact with other worlds.

Metal monolith found by helicopter crew in Utah desert

..."It is illegal to install structures or art without authorisation on federally managed public lands, no matter what planet you're from," [The Utah Department of Public Safety] said....

Good to see they're keeping a sense of humor about this.

Will chimps discover this one like they did in 2001: A Space Odyssey?

If I had the time and money I'd go there and dress like a monkey and when a chopper went by wave a bone at it.

It would be cooler if it were emitting a signal out to a specific location in deep space.

I wonder if it has been there since 2001...

It's ironic this one is located in a similar-looking location to the movie ...

Yes.

Then it would be out of this world cool.

But sorry. No one is coming to save us from ourselves.

We best get to work!
