"Monolithic" pop culture references #23

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:

What really gets people going isn't so much service going out. Technology falters, we all pretty much understand, and the means by which packets of information flow into and out of our computers remain as mysterious as the Easter Island statues.
Or not. Big is in, ponderous is popular, and somehow the natives on Easter Island moved those big stone statues.
