As Seen On The Beeb (BB&Q)
This thread is famous!
Unfortunately, it's famous for the wrong reasons.
I haven't been following the thread, but a quick review of the past few pages tells the story plainly enough.
I know threads like these can develop a momentum of their own, but we really need to put down those pointed fingers, defuse those drama bombs and come
to a truce.
If you feel like you need to get the last word in on some grudge, please resist the temptation.
Let's Draw A Line Right Here ------------------------------------------------------
threatening my fellow members, and I hate
seeing threads closed due to bickering, so I won't.
Rather, I'm just going to define this post as the post beyond which any rude, snarky or otherwise personal comments will receive warnings. One each,
no mulligans, no do-overs.
Also, posts must address the topic, which I'll reference below for convenience.
Finally, I and all staff members reserve the right to flat-out delete
It's right there in the T&C
. We have def mad uber mod powerZ.
However, I'm a lazy, lazy man, so I'm hoping none of these things will be necessary.
But I don't want anyone to say I didn't give fair warning if you overlook this message and get popped.

O Topic, Where Art Thou?
Long ago, when the thread was young, Scolecite
came forth unto this forum and spake thusly:
Pyramids at Giza were there BEFORE the Egyptians got there.
And verily I doth quote:

The Great Pyramid is unique, not only was it encased in limestone but:
1. Its the only pyramid to be built with concave sides, the curvature of which matches the radius of the earth.
2. Its the only pyramid to have chambers above ground.
3. Of all the pyramids only the Great Pyramid has "air shafts"
4. There is no writings or hieroglyphics in or on the Great Pyramid. (At least not in the way the other pyramids are decorated, Im taking the handful
writings that were found with a grain of salt)
5. The 3 major pyramids are aligned with orions belt.
6. The Great Pyramid is the most accuratly aligned structure in existence.
7. The Great Pyramid is at the center of the land mass of the earth.
Clearly the Egyptians found this great site and settled there. They tried building other pyramids in the image of the Great Pyramid. This explains why
mines are found in egypt. Well this pretty much expains EVERYTHING!Egyptologist ALWAYS want to proove the Egyptians built the Great Pyramid by showing
that rocks were mined nearby.
Im sure this has been studied before, who else here shares these thoughts, and where can I do more research on this subject?
Posts which address these assertions are on-topic and welcome (and if they're good, may even merit applause).
Post which do not will not be so warmly received.
Let's please endeavor to return to the topic upon which this thread was founded.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
P.S. We can't be everywhere, and sometimes ultimatums like these can themselves become buried beneath the sands of time.
If any member should witness misconduct, please submit a Complaint
link to the offending post and we'll come running.
We really do appreciate it when members alert us to trouble.
