Resurrect Dead: Toynbee Tiles & Jupiter & 2001, Oh My! | 225

Resurrect Dead: Toynbee Tiles & Jupiter & 2001, Oh My! | 225

Toynbee Ideas in Kubrick's 2001 Resurrect Dead on Planet Jupiter. No, that's not some strange Fortean Mad Libs, it's a message that, in various iterations, has been found across the world for over 30 years. Etched into streets, these "Toynbee Tiles" remain a mystery to investigators to this day. Who put them there? Are they all the product of the same person or group? What's their intention? Does the hateful ideology found on a few of them apply to all of them? As usual we ask tough questions this week (and as usual we have a hard time answering them ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ). Plus, Conspiracy Bot has a new product line (frightening). The new product line is geared to children (more frightening). And he's now calling people "daddy-o" (probably the most frightening). All of that and more on the podcast that wasn’t familiar with Toynbee Tiles, but WAS very familiar with KayBee Toys - Hysteria 51.
