I guess they mustta needed more than two ramps or they were multilane. ;)

Ancient reports said stones flew a bow shot at a time. This just might mean there were many stones moving up 300' each time.

The quarry merely needed to produce a 2 1/2 ton stone per minute. These were then used sequentially on the pyramid as evidenced by the horizontal lines visible in the sides.
