This mysterious technology uses bolts or screws, you can see them through the polish. Kind of disappointing.

It was an amendment to the Ten Commandments...

"Thou shall not steal elections."

The democrats didn't care for that, so they just stole the monolith too.

A group of four artists and fabricators unveiled themselves on Saturday as the creators of the stainless-steel curiosity that was placed atop Pine Mountain in Atascadero, Calif., on Tuesday ó and shared a YouTube video of a newly made replacement going up after some young men unceremoniously toppled the original and put a cross in its spot, livestreaming themselves in the process.
