I hope it wasn't the pilot counting the sheep - that could be dangerous!

During the video, the men also make offensive comments and drink substantial quantities of energy drinks, while also referencing Donald Trump and the QAnon conspiracy theory and their mission is to demonstrate “how much we love Jesus Christ”.

Will this be shown on Netflix? I can't wait for the next episode.

But it's so kind of the aliens to plant a monolith that does absolutely nothing at all, and can be easily removed.

Why do these things never happen near us? The closest we get to mysteries in the UK is how Dominic Cummings escapes a law that nobody else can.

I wonder if the two are connected. Monolith disappears. Cummings leaves No. 10. The truth is there somewhere. 8-)

Now it's clear that there's more than one, is 'MONOlith' still a suitable name for them?

Just askin'

Could be the same one, transformed into a different configuration
I'm sure you can have multiple monoliths, although arguably metal structure shouldnt be "...lith" as 'lith' refers to stone - from the Greek lithos
