Default 2001???

While on a mission to count bighorn sheep last Wednesday, Wildlife Resources officers aboard a Utah Department of Public Safety helicopter spotted a curious sight: a steely, triangular 10- to 12-foot-tall monolith, firmly planted at the bottom of an isolated sandstone gulch.

“During the counts we came across this, in the middle of nowhere, buried deep in the rock,” the department wrote in a caption accompanying the photo on Instagram. “Inquiring minds want to know, what the heck is it? Anyone?”

It's a control module, erected by ancient aliens to deflect planet killing meteors that might hit the Earth. Similar to this one:

I've long since lost all my chop fodder. For some odd reason, I think Willa leaning on that would be a classic mix

I have it on Blu-Ray. One of my favorite movies. Yeah...it's a little out there if you're now chemical free. But back in the day...at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood with a "bag of goodies and a bottle of wine" (per the Guess Who) you could really expand your mind.

I read the book several times as a teenager. Much better than the movie.

Arthur C. Clarke wrote "3001: The Final Odyssey." It goes into detail and explains the premise of the movie (i.e. the Monolith, what happened to Frank Poole, etc.).
