valuewalk, and add to that the Great Pyramid has not not four, but eight sides. The it has eight sides was discovered when RAF plane flew over it taking photos and the sun was in the right place to show the shadows. Trying to build a pyramid today? Ask the best architects and they'll all tell you this: "I'd need to know the blueprint and I can't write up that blueprint, because I don't know how to". Then think that the structure has huge blocks of rose-granite inside, that wouldn't even fit through the hole Napoleon Bonaparte's army blew into it. Therefore the inside must have been built first... but that wouldn't explain the shafts. How that was built is a mystery and if it was really easy, then the BBC would have done a copy call everybody fools, who think it wasn't built in 25 years. Nobody would attempt it. I know of a project where they built a much smaller version with the tools of the time they think it was built. It took them over one year, it was the size of a dog house and it collapsed less than a year after completion due to snow on the top.
Indeed. I've heard that even with all of the lasers and other equipment we now have, we would find it extremely difficult to replicate the Pyramids.
If Covid had a 100% mortality rate, who would be left? I reckon just the North Sentinelese, who are a Stone Age tribe. There would be, as you say, nothing left to prove our existence after a few thousand years. Maybe some top secret AI somewhere would hum away for eternity, oblivious to the death of its fleshy creators.
trading, my paternal grandmother studied history and she was totally into all the ancient cultures (Egyptians, Maya, Inca...you name it). What she always found strange, was that the first pyramid was spot on, but the younger ones... it seemed that they forgot how to build them. Therefore she already figured before the tomb of King Tut was found in 1926 (she was born in 1894 btw) that the original structures may be much, much older. We discussed all of that when I was much, much younger :-) and we both sort of reached the conclusion, that there must have been highly developed societies, but the went into decline. Perhaps because of a natural disaster or some high-tech war. The most logical thing to do in this event, would be to gather the cream of the crop of engineers, architects, etc, and build something from extremely solid rock to leave the message "We were here" and then write in pictures, rather than using letters. I have watched a very interesting documentary on Youtube about a year ago called "The World without Humans" and according to that, with our now modern structures, cars and stuff... assuming that all humans would simply just disappear right now, a visitor to planet Earth arriving about 15000 years after this event, would never know that we (as in humans today) have ever existed (as everything would have completely disintegrated) but they might still see the pyramids and all the other huge stone structures. I highly recommend that documentary to you.
Maybe the Vikings got there first maybe they stopped at Greenland or the Azores I'm not sure We used to have a saying in business, steal with pride (ideas and tactics not crime) or Isaac Newton summed it up perfectly
If I can see further it is because I stand on the shoulders of giants.
I agree on the maps thing, the world is becoming a far smaller place and I hope that will become a good thing
trading, I think the Vikings beat the Templars to discovering America. The problem most of us have, is with being taught the map in geography lessons via a map. They should use a globe. For USA to enter war with Russia, all it would need is a few kayaks to row across and sort the issue out :-)
Yeah but the planning and the traps he set in the forest and the way he lured them in was proper planning and execution My favourite fest I've been to was actually the Fruhlings fest in Stuttgart, that is a proper party. I've been to Munich twice in the posh tent and that wasn't half as much fun.
The Knights Templar were a much fabled group in prefer to think of them as being the first Europeans to discover America
mjc, I watched that movie and the ones with Tom Hanks :-) But what I say is factual history :-) If you dabble into history off the lines of any curriculum, it really does become interesting :-) Every now and then I run into a person asking me if in Germany we have something like a 'Royal Family' and my reply is always: "Oh course we do, their surname is "Sachsen Coburg von Gotha" and they're hiding under the adapted name of "Windsor" in Buckingham Palace" :-) And then I watch their over-confident facial expression slowly gliding towards the ground they're standing on :-)
trading, you already fell into a huge trap :-) the Oktoberfest is in Bavaria, Bavaria belongs to the Federal Republic, but instead of it being a Bundesland it's called the Free State Bavaria :-) . As for Arminius, he was taken by the Romans as a young boy and they made him a general, but then they were so stupid and sending him to rule over the 'Germans', which, of course.. he could only do to a certain agree. Eventually he joined them as their leader and knowing how the Roman army worked, it was easy for him to win. Also, at that time the Roman Empire was sliding into decline. Too fat, too lazy, too much corruption going on, you name it. All of our all history is so interwoven, yet we always manage and/our allow to reduce ourselves to a few years. For all we know, Vinson could be a direct descendant of a Knight Templar. They suddenly disappeared and around that time a small tribe in Switzerland suddenly knew how to fight and how to do banking successfully. Yet, shortly before this development, they were humble farmers ;-)
trading, I will never understand why we are always associated with the Huns :-) . It's not fair to the Huns :-) and the term 'German' was a Roman invention. Back then there was not 'Germans' but a bunch of tribes at constant war with one another. Some Roman general needed the Senate to pump some cash into "Conquer whatever is in this dense forest" and called them 'Germans'. The first time that they all came together as fought as one 'nation' (which is wasn't at all back then) was under Arminius the Cheruski, The Teutoburg Forest Battle and that wasn't even all of the tribes. After the Romans was a long period of struggle of which family/tribe will be the top notch and it was between the Merowingians and Karolingians. The first emperor became Charleslemagne or Charles the Great, who is buried in Aachen Cathedral. It' a very complicated history, which is probably the reason why only 12 years of German history are the main part of history lessons in German schools.
