The appearance of mysterious monoliths in Utah, Romania, and California’s central coast has piqued the interest of internet users in recent weeks, with some being tantalized by the mystery they could signify and others speculating that they could be a sign of a worsening of fortunes in 2020.

We expect that this will also be the case now that a “monolith” has been captured appearing in the heavens themselves.

A plumber in the Pacific Northwest, Jeff Jacobs, caught some amazing photos of what appears to be a “monolith in the sky” while driving home from work in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

It remains unknown what caused the strange phenomenon, which almost seems like a shadow being cast against a gorgeous sunset, but your guess is as good as ours.

Jacobs snapped the dramatic photos for his wife Rena, but the 56-year-old motorist likely had no idea that the images would set off a whole new round of online speculation.

“All of a sudden this rectangle showed up,” Jacobs said, according to Metro. “It was only in the sky for a couple of seconds. It wasn’t there, then it was, and as quickly as it appeared, it was gone again. That quick!”

“I just thought ‘What the hell is that?’. I’m just a north Idaho boy and we don’t see things like that.”

Since the photos emerged, some have speculated that there may be some connection with the infamous Utah monolith, which was installed by unknown parties some 800 miles from Idaho.

“A couple of people have suggested it could be the monolith from Utah and it is that type of shape,” Jacobs added. “Utah isn’t that far away from Idaho in the grand scheme of the world, the two states are connected.”

The Idaho “sky monolith” has appeared mere days after the original monolith in Utah disappeared.

The initial discovery of the monolith by Utah public safety workers in the southwestern U.S. state generated significant viral buzz, with many comparing the monolith to those that trigger massive leaps in human progress in the classic Stanley Kubrick sci-fi film, “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

Others bemoaned the discovery of the object in the turbulent year 2020, with some social media users complaining that the discovery of the monolith had triggered their anxiety over worsening fortunes in the year, including a possible extraterrestrial invasion.

The monolith was eventually dismantled by a pair of adventure athletes who were annoyed by the unauthorized installation of the structure in the delicate environment of Utah’s desert.

In a 23-second video uploaded to YouTube, Utah residents Andy Lewis and Sylvan Christensen can be seen dismantling and carrying away the 10-foot metal structure on Friday night.

In an Instagram post featuring the #LeaveNoTrace hashtag, Christensen later said that they decided to remove the monolith because of the damage it was inflicting on the remote region.

“Let’s be clear: The dismantling of the Utah Monolith is tragic—  and if you think we’re proud — we’re not. We’re disappointed,” Christensen wrote. “Furthermore, we were too late.”

Citing “ethical failures” of the artist who left a “gouge” in the sandstone to erect the monolith, Christensen added that the damage the artist wrought “was not even close to the damage caused by the internet sensationalism and subsequent reaction from the world.”

“This land wasn’t physically prepared for the population shift (especially during a pandemic),” he added.

Continuing, he noted that visitors flocked to the delicate area “by car, by bus, by van, helicopter, planes, trains, motorcycles and E-bikes and there isn’t even a parking lot. There aren’t bathrooms— and yes, pooping in the desert is a misdemeanor. There was a lot of that.”

Video Showing UFOs Swarming Navy Warship is Real, Pentagon Confirms

Late last month, reports emerged that a number of U.S. Navy guided missile destroyers sailing off the coast near Los Angeles encountered a swarm of strange unidentified flying objects or drones in 2019. While Navy investigators looked into the strange incident, no explanation has since been given.

However, new footage has been leaked to documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell that shows the strange flying objects swarming above one of the ships, and the Pentagon has confirmed that the videos are authentic.

“I can confirm that the referenced photos and videos were taken by Navy personnel,” a Department of Defense spokesperson told Futurism.

In the brief footage, which appears to have been recorded with night vision cameras, triangular or pyramid-shaped objects can be seen hovering above the deck of a Navy destroyer.

According to Corbell, the Pentagon has gone to great lengths to disavow any connection to the swarming UAVs.

“This was taken on deployment from the USS Russell,” Corbell told Mystery Wire. “It shows what they described as vehicles. And they made a great distinction. They made sure in this classified briefing, they made a great distinction that this is not something that we own either a black project, this is not something of a foreign military, that these were behaving in ways that we did not expect.

“And that they were you know shaped non aerodynamically,” he added. “Like pyramids, these are flying pyramids!”

The video, as well as a number of photos from the incident, have all been gathered by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, a group tasked with investigating encounters between the different service branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and a number of unidentified flying objects.

While officials have been baffled by the unknown flying objects, in recent years the Pentagon has been more vocal about past encounters, which they describe as having been frequent. Officials have also discouraged the use of the acronym “UFOs,” instead opting to describe them as unidentified aerial phenomena or UAPs.

Prince Philip Joke About Reincarnating as Deadly Virus to ‘Solve Overpopulation’ Resurfaces

The Friday announcement of the death of Prince Philip elicited a range of reactions on social media, with some users eulogizing the late royal while others used the occasion to heap mockery upon the British monarchy.

However, others also shared an old quote from the Prince Philip where he bizarrely suggested that after he died, his wish would be that he is reincarnated as a deadly virus in order to help solve the so-called problem of overpopulation.

The decidedly anti-social quote was taken from a 2009 article published by The Guardian that listed out a number of controversial and generally distasteful quotes from the Queen’s husband on various subjects.

The full quote read: “In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation.”

Tweeting a screenshot of the quote, user Riya said: “WHAT THE F*CK.”

While others replied to the misanthropic quote with a reference to the ongoing pandemic:

The Daily Express notes that the quote originates from a joking comment about deadly viruses that the prince made in a 1988 interview with Deutsche Press-Agentur. The quote was also widely shared during the initial outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Buckingham Palace announced the death of Prince Philip, royal consort to Queen Elizabeth II, on Friday morning.

“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” the announcement read. “His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.”

Company Sells Sex Robot ‘Clones’ Of Dead Partners Using 3D-Modeling Technology

For many people who have lost their significant others, sex dolls have provided one way to ease the pain of grief and loneliness.

However, sex robot company Lux Botics is taking things one step further – by offering a clone of dead partners using state-of-the-art three-dimensional modeling.

With demand for sex dolls booming amid the ongoing pandemic and lockdowns across the world, Lux Botics is offering “ultra-realistic humanoids” to satisfy the carnal needs of the singles without any other recourse.

The company’s flagship “Adult Companion” model called Stephanie goes for USD $6,000 on the Lux Botics website.

The model includes speech control, facial recognition, a “hyper realistic eyes” option and even the option of implanted real hair, as well as limited AI capabilities.

However, the company also offers the option of creating a facsimile of a lost loved one.

The company can either create a 3D model through detailed modeling prior to it being printed in ultra-fine resolution, or it can rely on photos of the individual.

A mould would then be constructed based on the 3D model, complete with a robot skeleton. The robot is then painted and fitted with the lips, nails, eyebrows and other features the customer chooses.

“We can make robots that talk but we have not made robots that truly walk on their own,” Lux Botics co-founder Bjorn told Daily Star UK. “We hope to develop this in the near future. We can make a large number of body parts that can move in a realistic manner.”

While the company hasn’t yet created body doubles, Lux Botics is offering the choice to customers.

Since the start of the pandemic, people have been desperate to cope with the solitude of self-isolation and lockdown measures. While many have resorted to traditional measures like purchasing a pet or using dating apps, sex doll sales have also skyrocketed as people seek an emotional crutch.
