First of all, you didn't upload your images. So we see ...nothing.

I think we all got that ages ago.
What you don't seem to "get" is that they didn't do it that way. Others put up links to the types of roads they built. And I remember reading
about quarry roadways and other roadways paved with small bricks.
Last road block is last block on pyramid. Explains why there is no evidence.
No, it doesn't. You see, if it HAD been done that way (for 20 years) the top blocks would be chipped and scratched and there'd be a HUMONGOUS
trench roadway (as the blocks sank into the mud from the floods and all that.)
What did they have a lot of besides sand and Egyptians?
You really don't know anything about them, do you? What a shame. They're a wonderful culture.
Blocks. I would use them. Lots of them. readily available, real good at moving them. No special orders or changes in production. little work
and they're nice and smooh and flat. Solid. stable. lasting. Stagger each row so the cracks aren't lined up and rollers go right over. You don't
have to stop and heighten the ramp every level.
Yeah, that's the way YOU would do it in the 20th century. How many granite and limestone block highways have you built? You're awfully proud of
your safemoving experience, but I don't see a thing about your experience building roads in Egypt and hauling stone over them.
My brother knows a thing or two about building roads. He had a good laugh at your idea. Blocks without gravel underneath to stabilize them won't
stay stable under loads.
maybe they aren't mentioned because the Egytians are like "duh, use the blocks".
Wow. You really don't bother reading, do you?
Unlike you, I do bother to read the links. The Egyptians talked about their methods and left evidence of it. Didn't include huge shifting
Shortest distance fom quarry to pyramid? High school. Come on now. Straight line.
You really don't know anything about roads, do you? Here's a hint from my brother: that may be the shortest line but it probably isn't usable.
You can draw a nice straight line from one side of the Rockies to another, but I can guarantee you that you couldn't drive a car over it.
And you sure haven't tried moving any stones. Safes, yeah. Other stuff, yeah. Become a sculptor (like my uncle) and start hauling a ton or so of
limestone or marble for your sculpture out of a quarry.
I've helped do that.
I'm here to say the idea of "dragging rock over rock" being 'efficient and fast' is pure baloney.
listen people, this as toned down as I get. Ban me, ignore me, but don't tell me this don't work becasue of my mouth. Does anyone see these?
Now find a better quicker way.
So far, your mouth hasn't proved that it's doable. YOU haven't proved that it's doable (you probably don't watch a lot of tv, so I'll tell you
that there's several documentaries where students and others have tried methods they theorized about.)
You just showed up, said "WORSHIP ME! I KNOW EVERYTHING!!" and copped attitude and pitched fits, hoping we'll all cave in and go "ooooo! He's a
fountain of wisdom!!!!!!!!!"
You haven't proved that your "idea" is right. You've proved you're a terrible artist and that you will attack savagely anyone who thinks your
ideas are wrong. You've proved you have a terrible temper. You've proved that when you can't argue a point, you try being nasty.
Well, your nasty attitude doesn't prove a thing. Grab limestone, get a vid, go out to the desert and use YOUR building technique in a race against
another team and prove it's faster and cheaper.
Then we'll be impressed.
