So you know it was "daubed quickly", do you? And you are suggesting that in a totally open text stream behind a chick that clearly shows the top and bottom of that text stream, the painter/mason was so sloppy about finding the vertical center of the text stream that he somehow accidentally painted a horizontally linear snake all the way at the top of the text stream because of how fast he had to paint it? Are you suggesting it was painted up there in the rafters with a rotated horizontal format rather than just painting it vertically? All that seems logical to you, huh?

I'm sorry you continue to cut the masons short in their level of expertise that they were unable to do a better job estimating the vertical center of a text stream. Bumpkins indeed abounded among the ancients. Please point out all the other extreme positioning errors they made because they were in such a hurry.

In no other glyph string do we find any glyph so far out of compliance in its alignment. I assume you prefer to chalk that up to a coincidence. I disagree.

You can't be serious. There is only a small handful of places across the entirety of Egypt where you can find "Khufu" written at all. The vast majority are either "Khfu" or "Khnum-Khfu". If what you say is true, why does virtually every textbook written by a credentialed Egyptologist show it in a lower position? And some even with the dots under it? Show me any current text on glyphs that provide for a text format that allows such high placement of any glyph without the presence of a glyph underneath it.

No other glyph throughout the Relieving Chambers shows such anomalous positioning.

You have ZERO idea how "quickly" those paintings were made. You are simply making it up to fit your self-consistent theory. If they were in that much of a hurry to be so far off from the vertical center when drawing essentially a horizontal line, then there should be many other glyphs with such placement errors, and yet you would be hard pressed to find any other glyph so anomalously place out of compliance.
