We Like Conspiracy Theories

Patrick really likes history. And conspiracy theories.

The other day, he was telling me about the Toynbee tiles, which are embedded in city streets across the US and South America.  They started popping up in the 1980s, and people have all sorts of crazy conspiracy theories to explain the tiles and their strange messages.  (Here's Wikipedia's take on the tiles.)

So we went looking for a little bit of the conspiracy in dahntahn Pittsburgh, and this is what we found...

Partial instructions on how to make more tiles.

"You must work for the destruction of media and its thousands of fronts!"

After we were done conspiracy-theory-ing, we headed over to the Point.

This one is so Pittsburgh.
