"Monolithic" pop culture references #18

Ever searching for news about Rapa Nui, this blog's administrator comes across many references to Rapa Nui and its famous moai. Often, these references are quite comical and have nothing to do with the island or the culture of Rapa Nui. Other times, they appear to be speculative, based more on misconceptions than reality, or downright bizarre. Here are some of the more recent references:

I'm talking about Easter Island vs. the Great Wall of China.

The Cud:
(Aside from Easter Island, Hawaii is the body of land furthest from any other landmass in the world.)

Lebanon Daily News:
Another option would be Easter Island, supposedly the remotest place on the planet. That would be somewhat relative, geographically I guess. Antarctica also is pretty remote, unless you live at the bottom tip of New Zealand’s South Island.
