I wonder if, before they touched it, they heard, "eeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeee​eeeeeEEEEEEEE​EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!​!"

It's been there for awhile, but it took them this long to find it because every time they count sheep, they fall asleep halfway through.

Looks like the post for a really nice sign that the state of Utah never got around to installing.

Like Stonehenge. No way it could be reduced in size.

Technically a monolith is a single, freestanding stone.

I mean clearly it's useful to get the exp bonus for those units, but the surrounding land is so desolate that it's probably not worth settling unless you put a condenser nearby.

And if Obelix carved it, it's called a 'menhir'.

Dating is strange in Utah, but we should celebrate the betrothed and his newest son-husband.  Yay you guys, I guess.

A mysterious monolith has been discovered in a remote part of Utah, after being spotted by state employees counting sheep from a helicopter.
The structure, estimated at between 10ft and 12ft high (about 3 metres), appeared to be planted in the ground. It was made from some sort of metal,


Then it's not a bloody mono-LITH now is it?

lith- comes from Greek, where it has the meaning "stone"
 
2020-11-23 4:28:48 PM  
ok....

So it is a triangular metal pillar with on corner facing the water pooling behind it?

I'd go with either "aliens" or "an artist that looked at a lot of Michael Heizer, Walter De Maria, and Tony Smith."

Occam's razor definitely suggests aliens. But hey, if you are into conspiracy theories, it could be someone steeped in land art, earthworks, and minimalism.

That's how you know that thing was made by a civilization more advanced then ours, we do not have the technology to make monolith that aren't huge.
 
2020-11-23 4:49:03 PM  
i don't see a monolith  where is it
 
2020-11-23 4:49:22 PM  
I'd bet my life's savings the artist arranged for the sheep counting guys to "find" it and alert the media.
 
2020-11-23 4:51:33 PM  
ok never mind
