Have you ever wondered if perhaps we did not understand the sense of humor of the ancients as they would have expressed through Tiktok had they had Tiktok? Because this is *definitely* getting categorized as “religious site” by future archeologists.

Also, comments on waste aside, note that we can still build monuments (to flaming hot Cheetos) with no greater incentive to doing that than “One guy thought it would make a cool tiktok video”, and a) improves my impression of creative impact of Tiktok b) let’s make some monuments

“But it was wasteful!” Eh it’s a creative act which utilized labor and inputs which are not scarce at any relevant margin. The thing people are detecting as “waste” is instead values disalignment with themselves having created no monuments to things they consider more important.
