Inside the world’s deadliest mega-structure
We’ve built more pyramids than the Egyptians — but while the ones in the desert have stood for thousands of years, ours crumble practically overnight.

I just wanted to let you know OP, that because of your thread, you have made me look at and think a lot about my diet and what has been happening with me for the past couple of years.

Thanks again, you made a difference.
