news media yet again making ridiculous claims - "Mysterious black monolith appears..."

far from being 'mysterious' this is part of new public spaces area being built around convention centre due to open in Dec. Far from being 'mysterious' the information on it is that the tower, which is called Conduit, was designed by Auckland creative studio Creature Post and cost $52,000 to build. The $52,000 cost does not include the fee paid to Creature Post to design the tower. So, REALLY 'mysterious' then? In view of all of which, how is this either news or mysterious? Do you think this is just another example of our media making silly claims to add a so-called news item to their page? (Piggy-backing on genuine news about mysterious monoliths that have appeared overseas...) And do you think they'd be better occupied in finding genuine news?

it's the 'mysterious/ claim that gets me. What's 'mysterious' about an item put up officially? They make it sound as if it appeared in a bright light, or was dropped off by a spaceship. Reply

I think its a waste of Money. The biggest winner was the truck driver who transported it from Auckland to Christchurch, hope he charged an arm and a leg, mainly for the stupidity of it. Reply
