I saw this last week, but decided to hold off, because I didn’t want to dwell on it, but here it is: a metal monolith was accidentally discovered in the middle of the Utah wilderness and although it’s probably made by humans, the level of effort to get it and “install” it like it’s some weird “think-piece” in the middle of nowhere is deeply weird.
In other words, it’s peak 2020.
I’m not sure what’s going to happen as more people venture out to look at it –despite its exact location not being public knowledge– but Stephen Colbert already has a film idea.
UPDATE: This is what I get for trying to do my posts in advance. As of Sunday, it disappeared!
SECOND UPDATE: Now a another monolith (or is it the same one?) has appeared in Romania!
THIRD UPDATE: Okay, so space elves did not abscond with the Utah monolith (Probably).
FOURTH UPDATE: And now there’s a monolith in California?!? COME ON, 2020!
FIFTH UPDATE: I don’t know if I can keep up with this…
Oh, and also as of 12/7/20, there’s a slightly different cousin monolith on the Isle of Wight.
