Magnetism warps a state highway

The downward warping of this state highway near Moab, Utah was a result of the presence of a severe magnetic bubble that landed here. These bubbles are much stronger than the everyday magnetic variations that go unnoticed (example: the needle of a compass deviating by one millionth of a degree).

As I drove down this flat road, enjoying the magnificent landscape, I was jolted out of my scenery-induced state of awe by the audible alarm of my Multiphase Gauss Receptor. The intensity of the bubble was so bad that the paper clips in the car's coin tray glommed together and flew as a single blob to the steering column, where they held fast. This scared the pants off of me (only in the figurative sense).

After activating the other instruments I got out of the car to gather evidence. This picture is one of the many I took; it clearly shows the warping of the road. I documented the situation until my head was about to explode from a gauss-ache. The only relief was afforded by driving out of the affected area. About a mile down the road, the paper clips unglommed and fell to the floor, necessitating another stop to clean them up. This work is not easy. Thankfully, the gauss-ache subsided. Later in the day, all traces of the magnetic bubble were gone. The road unwarped.

The sanitized story for public consumption is located elsewhere.

Studies have shown that the "New Year's Day Warping Phenomenon" is closely related to the warped notion of scaling cliffs "because they are there." The sane approach is to scale them to determine their weight.

This is amazing Dave. I've also noticed that ALL roads look like this on New Year's Day.

Magnetism produces all sorts of distortion, so it is no surprise to think one sees a face on a cliff. During this episode I saw things that I cannot describe here because to do so would create a panic in southeastern Utah. This work can be a burden but I perform it willingly.

Do I see a hint of a face over the back end of the SUV???....hum....

Frightening and amazing at the same time. Distortion, warping, bright colors, and cast iron pots are my life every morning and evening ;-)

Ian, thanks for the moral support. I believe in the adage "No pain, no gain," but there are limits to what I am willing to endure. When my head feels as though a freight train (goods train) is roaring through it, I give up the battle and seek relief outside the bubble. By heeding the pain, I am able to avoid incapacitation, thus ensuring my ability to continue these documentary efforts. It's quite difficult to perform this valuable service when catatonic.

Come come now Dave,an experienced commentator on the surreal and totally absurd,reveal your inner pain,share with us that grain of the sand of truth in your oyster of faith.Then maybe,God willing,you WILL be able to bear it.

An attractive shot to many; others will be polarized.
