Surely the fact that this was announced on the same day the Darth Vader "died" is no coincidence.
Do the math(sic) sheeple.
The mysterious monolith found in a remote corner of Utah last week has mysteriously disappeared. The Utah Bureau of Land Management took to Facebook over the weekend to report: “We have received credible reports that the illegally installed structure, referred to as the ‘monolith’ has been removed from Bureau of Land …
Utah in some places pretty much redefines 'barren landscape'. It's not all red either, there are areas that are just an off-white colour with no vegetation anywhere.
It's magnificent to drive through and spectacular and frequently very pretty. Well worth a visit.
I was about 100 meters offshore when a conrod in the Reliant engine broke and went through the block. Admittedly, the engine was installed in a hovercraft at the time. As they were aluminium alloy and not cast iron blocks, the engine was good for use in a light hovercraft, but were much more stressed due to high revs they were subjected to, rather than pottering about Peckham in a vehicle they were designed for
My father used to drive one. Reliants - not hovercraft. Classed as motortricycles so he had to take his test again when he started driving a car with four wheels!
He was involved in an accident and it was written off. As he worked with fibreglass, he just rebuilt it.
As you will no doubt be aware, the plans for development of the outlying regions of the Galaxy require the building of a hyperspatial express route through your star system, and regrettably, your planet is one of those scheduled for demolition. The process will take slightly less than two of your Earth minutes. Thank you.
It's a metal box. Or was.
A monolith is big single piece of stone or rock. Clue in the name.
Loads in Europe. Famous ones in Sweden, France, UK and Ireland, from about 1000 years old (Runestones) to maybe 5,000+ years old. This USA newbie structure now AWOL isn't and can't be called a monolith.
It's insulting to call it a monolith.
If it was a menhir, look for a large fellow with blue and white striped trousers, red pigtails and a helmet. Often accompanied by a small guy in red red trousers a black top, fair pigtails, and a helmet with wings, and a small black and white dog.
Be careful. They're reputed to be rather strong.
I guess, unless Fay (Sidhe, sìde, elves) installed, all the original monolith installers are dead. There is a reason why they were called the Good Neighbours.
A good point on the lithographic printing, except that's been using metal plates for over 100 years and I'd never heard anyone call a shiny metal box a monolith before last week.
I rather think that George was laughing at the twits who believe the 4chan-invented qanon nonsense has any basis in reality beyond the minds of fourteen year old little boys out for lulz at the expense of adults who should know better.
As should we all.
I thought it was some kind of reflective ground marker for a satellite to use. Is there anything special about the coordinates?
It's in Utah. Rumors that it was a Utah Book Repository & contained words written on gold sheets have yet to be officially denied.
I also gathered its use may be military, hence it has been quickly and quietly disappeared.
I doubt it. Unless some airpersons from Nellis got a bit lost. Which is perhaps easily done given the NAFBC is around 10,000 square miles of assorted sneaky & not so sneaky bits. And the US Military has other large chunks of the US to hide stuff in. I guess you could use targets like this as training exercises for human or machine detection, but my bet is it was an art installation, or maybe part of a geolocation/geocaching challenge.
Or a Vogon traffic cone..

I'm assuming they're not self-aggrandising as no artist has popped up to claim it, and offer the correct interpretation. Then again, it could be on it's way to an auction house or gallery.
But if I'd stol.. I mean acquired this valuable piece of modern art, I'd pitch it as a chronological inconsistency in arrangement. A juxtaposition of events, objects from different time periods. A most uncommon example of an object misplaced in time, a technology, a philosophical idea, and a material, that is placed outside its proper temporal domain*.
So basically a sundial that could be seen from space. As demonstrated by the people who located it by seeing it's shadow in satellite imagery. Reserve price set at $1.5m..

Turns out, Arthur Clark's 2001 and follow up 2010 were not science fiction writings, but actually implanted thoughts delivered by alien overlords. Clark mis-interpreted the message and wrote what he thought was a fiction. That not working, the aliens decided a more direct placement of the message block was in order. Sadly, in a strange mashup of science fiction and reality, the aliens, determining that humans were not the correct vehicle for message deliver after the Clark debacle, instead placed it where the perceived higher life form would discover it. However, a mix-up between deer mouse and common mice is again preventing the correct delivery of the message.
Since he could not get space at Mt. Rushmore orignally, he decided this was his ultimate resting place. And plonk this lith with the help of Guilliani and his other plonkers.
He will appear as a ghost to haunt Biden & Co. there someday. Mark my words, D. Vader ! It is Trumpistand out there.
It's there, but seeing as there are no tool marks or real symmetry, it was most likely wind-carved and is thus just a natural random pattern in the rock. You can see things like this eroded into rocks all over the world, and indeed on the Moon, Mars, and in other places.
Don't worry, pareidolia is considered to be a normal human tendency.
HOWEVER, that is not to say that the face-like image is not part of the reason the thing was erected in that spot in the first place. I personally hope the person(s) responsible owns up to the reason and/or meaning behind the thing, but I'm not holding my breath.
I like the fact that it was 'illegally installed', as if the US Government 'owns' the desert; and that the desert wasn't there millions of years before the US, and will be millions of years after the US is wiped from the memory of all things.
