Ah, the Georgia Guidestones. How statuesque. How deeply problematic.
The Georgia Guidestones were a truly odd conglomeration of granite that popped up in rural Georgia in the 1980s.

Apparently he decided this was less "letter to the editor" territory and more "carve into very tall and astronomically significant granite via eight languages" territory.
Through the decades, questions, controversies, and conspiracy theories have swirled around these six large stones — ultimately leading to their destruction in the summer of 2022.

(NOTE: Stonehenge is pictured. I couldn't find a public domain image of the Georgia Guidestones. Use your imagination and/or Google.)
