I think its so funny that the rover just never gets a close shot of any of this stuff lol we sent it there for close up of this kind of stuff, not distance shots lol great find! we all paid alot for the rover in taxes right? i want to drive it for a day lol
Curiosity has many missions, none of which are to take close-up photographs of 'this kind of stuff'. If NASA were to divert it off its' scheduled course to get closer to (and photograph) every unusual looking or reflective rock it comes across, then it would never achieve any of its' goals.
Opportunity Rover finds Dome

Although an interesting find, we shouldn't look at those resized images as if they are the original, this is how it looks like when the image isn't resampled when resized.
No shiny look, no "snakes", lots of JPEG artefacts.
it seems like it would be valuable information considering that it isn't anywhere where a river would have flown.
While I do appreciate the imagery comparison I don't see this as pareidolia.
I also see a lack of similarity as the environmentally created domes in your image are not on a spherical arc whereas this is the case with the one in the NASA imagery.
Because it's on top of a hill. Rivers aren't know for flowing over hills. If it's a rock, it would indicate some fairly large geographical shifts.
