The shows subject choice must not be unexpected at this moment, thinking about that last weekend’s episode had to do with sandwiches. However, as fans currently understand, John Oliver can see in any ordinary topic a chance for imparting knowledge.

Undoubtedly, the rocks in concern are not simply any ordinary rocks you can discover anywhere. No, these are “specific rocks”. However to get to the particular rocks this episode concentrates on, Oliver needs to initially discuss Georgia’s gubernatorial Republican primaries.

This order would see the demolition of Georgia’s Guidestones, which, in Taylor’s words, can be compared to “a war between good and evil.” Lastly, over midway through the episode, we lastly get to the particular rocks the host discussed.

This roadside destination in Elbert County is at the center of numerous online conspiracy theories. Naturally, Oliver attempts to use a more reasonable counterargument to all these conspiracy theories.
