I love basically everything about the Utah monolith mystery — obviously — but especially this statement from the Utah Department of Public Safety:

“It is in a very remote area and if individuals were to attempt to visit the area, there is a significant possibility they may become stranded and require rescue.”

What a cryptic way to try to dissuade people from finding it! And while rational minds might think of reasons why such a department would want to dissuade such things — it also seems weird to issue such a statement! Adi Robertson of The Verge pulls out the great 2010 reference: “ATTEMPT NO LANDINGS THERE”. I mean, the statement really is basically that!

Anyway, leave it to the internet to track down the likely home of the monolith with the help of Google Earth. Still no word on how and/or why it’s there.
