Imagine all the other indignities poor Khufu suffered just to get there, the least of which not being able to even go through his own mortuary temple and dragged up a temporary structure to get up to the entrance.

HERE. Not a single relevant response despite hundreds of views.

It seems to me that for some of you, the ones who could make a more meaningful contribution, "poking the dog with a stick" is how you spend most of your time here. I mean, for example, what do you think of this Matt:

The Enigma of the Palace Facade Mastabas of the 1st Dynasty

No contribution from you, Martin, Dr T, ect. Or to most of the ideas I have presented here:
Mysteries: The Collected Works of Thanos5150

Its not about me, but rather these topics, that I do not understand why it is more interesting to argue with flat Earthers or the minutia of the Khufu cartouche for the umpteenth time or Cladking's stupid bullshit ad nauseum. And not just along with more interesting topics, but actually in lieu of? I am truly at a loss to understand why people care most about the things in reality they should care the least.

Fair enough.

I suspect you had some Egyptology courses in your education?
