The Black Hole And The “Golden Butthole” Look Alike

Play episode

A photo that is important to science was shared Wednesday. It’s huge news that we now have the first picture of a black hole, thanks to researchers at the National Science Foundation.

“We have seen what we thought was unseeable. We have seen and taken a picture of a black hole,” Sheperd Doeleman, EHT Director and astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

But as soon as I saw it, my thoughts went straight back to home. To something else I thought was unseeable.

The Golden Halo sculpture, a.k.a. The Golden Butthole on M-59 in Sterling Heights.

The resemblance is uncanny and leaves me with questions.

Was this inspired by aliens?

Did the artist know about the black hole before this was made?

Will a black hole open up and swallow Macomb County and eventually, the whole earth?

“Transcending,” a circular Stargate-looking monument to celebrate the labor movement

Is it a portal to downtown Detroit’s Stargate? Interstellar Mass Transit, anyone?

We may never know all the answers.

However, I have learned that just east of the Golden Butthole… errr… Halo will be a new restaurant.

It’ll serve Chicago-style pizza with a Cali twist, and something called a “Pizookie.”

And it’s going to be called “BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse.”
