...because nobody else could have come up with that design. It must have been stolen.

Since I have seen this type of chair I know I could make them easily.

The question becomes "Who had the original idea?" I remember hearing someone talking about creativity recently and there was a line "All creativity is theft" because if you come up with something you are building on things that you have already experienced.

So, could an experienced wood worker 3000 years back come up with this on their own? Maybe.

So that's why German excavation firms get all the good contracts from Egypt.

Wow, you can make a chair like that? Who would have guessed?

Germans... explains the alien connection to anal probes. Easily mistakable.

I've seen enough German porn to know that Germans are aliens, subtard.

Probably there for the sex tourism

Aha! So my tale of the Illuminati's diabolical chair plot suddenly doesn't sound so crazy, does it?

/no one probably remembers

Definitely a thread for "Indiana Jones and the Movie Cliche"

You know what else wanted to go to Egypt?

These were all over the Duty Free shop in Thebes back then. But still, the riverport prices were way more expensive than in the city.

Here's my refutation:

Main argument for- designs too close together.
Counter argument- how much different were the size of german asses and the length of German legs than that of their Egyptian counterparts?

I've been to Kolding. That's my contribution to this thread.

Well there is little doubt that at least one did. Why then is it impossible for two to have come up with the idea independently?

I'm not saying it was Germans.

But it was Germans.

Don't mention the war.
