There's been some *ahem* mysterious monoliths [possibly NSFW] appearing and disappearing in Germany too.

On Wednesday afternoon, the third monolith that’s popped up around the world in recent weeks appeared on a mountaintop in Atascadero, California, but just as quickly, a Twitter user posted a photo that appeared to show that the structure had already been removed. On Thursday afternoon, Vice confirmed that the monolith had indeed been taken down, and it had been removed overnight by a group of racist, far-right men who live-streamed their vandalism as it took place via an account called CultureWarCrimnal, and who subsequently erected a cross on the mountaintop instead. “Christ is king in this country,” one of the men can be heard saying in the livestream video. “We don’t want illegal aliens from Mexico, or outer space.”
Then religitards tear it down and put up a cross.

This is why we cant have nice things.

I bet it’s viral marketing.

Nike is going to come out with silver “monolith” kicks.

The object was standing upright in a field, just off Highway 22, at the Oldman River crossing.

It's actually kind of pretty in that setting.

Better than the big blue ring in the NW at least.

Kind of bizarre there's been at least 113 monolith's around the world since Dec 2020 and aside from the one in Edmonton(go figure) not no one has been caught putting them up.

I believe I heard that this one was placed by a local to bring awareness to maintaining Alberta's parks and mountain areas. But i can't find the source now.
