2020: A Desert Odyssey

What is this thing?

Snopes says it is real.

HAL 9000 says, “ “I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do. Look @David, I can see you’re really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.”

We need to send @edstainless to investigate!

Hollow. Sheet-metal.

I’m somewhat afraid of what they might find inside, if they try to remove it.

Perhaps the first intelligent tool-using ape was a HVAC installer.

Based on how clean it looked in the video I saw, I’d say it is an art installation.

My money is on art also. And I’ll bet that it has been there a while. Think a bunch of folks meeting in a remote location to party and play and make art for a week. And they left this.
It just looks like a slab of stainless.
And I would love to hike in that part of the country again.

According to The Verge, Google Maps places it there between August 2015 and October 2016. About 4-5 years.
