Subject: Re:  'Monolith' Object On Mars? You Could Call It

I'm not into "dumb" or asinine posts - especially with
the outstanding posts here, of late!

Some are good enough to frame!

So I hope this doesn't qualify as one of the former.

But I ran across a photograph titled "Mars Monolith Mystery
Solved". I'll spill the beans and make it easy for everyone:
It's a picture of a Coke machine. Click and laugh.


"What did you expect? A monolith from 2001?".

There's so much on Mars to see, indicating the past presence of
a civilization, that a monolith on the surface is like putting a
shoe next to an aircraft carrier on Earth and asking, "Do you
think the Earthlings put that shoe there to symbolize
civilization, and possibly send us some kind of message?"
Answer: "Absolutely not".

What does the monolith mean? I don't know. I think we should
take a closer picture of it if we get a chance, but it certainly
doesn't mean "Kilroy was here". The Tubes of Mars (as well as
the Face) say plenty. If anything, the Face is the stronger
equivalent of a monolith, it's about a mile long, and it's not
buried underground. I've also done a lot of graphics work with
the tubes to bring out the details, primarily with M04-00291,
and believe me, they aren't sand dunes.

Am I curious about the monolith? Sure. I'd like to see a
clearer, closer picture of it, but I doubt that it has anything
like the same meaning that it did in the movie. If HAL doesn't
sabotage the mission, maybe we can get NASA to take some more
closeups. Note: HAL works for NASA and will try to sabotage the
mission in some way. Guaranteed. Perhaps by smudging the photos
in critical places, or waiting for a dust storm to arise. But
hope springs eternal. Science is stranger than fiction, these
