Sunday, November 29, 2020

Bureau of Land Management - Utah: Here is our official statement on the rumors surrounding the "#Monolith:" We have received credible reports that the illegally installed structure, referred to as the "monolith" has been removed from Bureau of Land Management (BLM) public lands by an unknown party. The BLM did not remove the structure which is considered private property. We do not investigate crimes involving private property which are handled by the local sheriff's office. The structure has received international and national attention and we received reports that a person or group removed it on the evening of Nov. 27."

In this day and age I would check out area metal recyclers.

Maybe an inside job to drum up tourism in the wake of the Covid pandemic.

It's a remote area. There has to be evidence. If only a flight report. If they didn't drive it out then they flew it out. Maybe after it was discovered and it was mentioned that it was illegally there.

I would imagine they just flew out there like and removed it real quick like since they already knew where it was.

Everyone loves a good mystery. Especially if involves aliens. But we should be so lucky! I could use the distraction/ deflection. But it's probably just a prank. People are really bored. I know because I might do something like that myself if I had oodles of money and time. And the energy.

Probably Elon Musk or somebody like him at one of his anti "I don't believe in covid stopping me" parties. On a dare.

Yup.

That's been my view since the onset.

This prank probably costs quite a bit of money. I wonder what the return might be. I don't yet see the marketing angle.

No one knows where it came from or where it went but ancient astronaut theorists have a theory!

FINALLY, FINALLY, a real live HOAX, and NOT a single TRUMPER wants TO COMMENT on it.

You guys are slacking.

The story continues.

Now a mysterious Arthur C Clarke-style monolith appears in ROMANIA after unexplained metal vanished from Utah - so who (or what) put it there?

Mysterious metal monolith has appeared in northern Romania after another vanished from the desert in Utah

The shiny triangular pillar was found on Batcas Doamnei Hill in the city of Piatra Neamt last Thursday

One side of the structure, which is 13 feet tall, faces Mount Ceahlau, known locally as the Holy Mountain

But there's more!!

A MYSTERIOUS object hurtling towards our Solar System from deep space has been photographed by scientists.

The incoming comet is like nothing scientists have seen before and is believed to have come from another star system.

OH SHTT,

Either we got a War of the Worlds wiseguy or we finally screwed up to the point our Overlords are coming to ground us and put us in a corner.

Or it could be us from the future trying to steer us from total destruction.

Or blow us the phkck up.

I'm still calling Hoax, but not as loudly.

I'm betting it's more like "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home."

The alien probe is coming to earth to look for humpback whales to communicate with.

Also.

Just a coincidence that HeliumRat disappears and these monoliths show up?

I think not.

7 trillion miles is a LONG way away!

At 110,000 mph, it's taken well over 7000 years to reach our solar system from wherever it originated

You're forgetting warp speed and wormholes.

I've seen enough science fiction in my lifetime to know that ship will be landing on earth before we know it.
