You're also talking about one "unfinished" stone versus stones that were finished and tightly put into place and on top of each other. Unlike the Russians, the Egyptians didn't have Iron to cut the stones but relied on copper which was a soft metal. Finally the Russians had plenty of trees to cut down to roll the stone on whereas the Egyptians lived in a desert and not an abundance of trees to work with. "
So I mean...ya....ramps maybe? still pretty iffy.
