It's always very diplomatic to apologize,  assume the blame, say the buck stops with me, and take full responsibilty for something when you're confident there will be no actual punishment or consequence.

Cool pictures.

Assholes.  There's a no-climbing rule for a reason. You're not above the rules.

2. Install a giant slide

3. Profit!

Make it happen, Egypt.

I have mixed feelings.

On one hand, there are good reasons they don't allow people to climb the pyramids so it is hard to condone the behavior.

On the other hand, those are pretty neat pictures to look through.

What a fascinating civilization.  It's a shame they're all in hell, since they died before man created our one true God, and therefore worshiped all those false gods.

andyofne: FTA: "It was already pitch black and nobody paid us any attention. We started climbing as fast and as soundless as we could.  "

None of those photos appear to be taken during a period of pitch blackness.


Why, it's almost as if they started climbing while it was pitch black and it took them a while to get to the top and once they got there the sun was beginning to come up or something.

But that couldn't be, since it only would have taken them two minutes to reach the top.

I wouldn't call them "spectacular photos" more like "not too bad photos"

Anyone else getting weary of adjective hyperbole?

Slavery gets shiat done.


They weren't slaves either. Think farmers on the off season, paid with beer. (hekt)

I bet you just love Nazis.


No, I love ancient art.  If everyone goes and climbs on it, it won't be there any more. It's bad enough Cairo's pollution is degrading it on a daily basis.

What if my dream is to rape your sister and shiat on your grandparents grave?

perhaps not allowing tourists on the actual pyramid, but perhaps erecting a scaffolding or something, upon which tourists can climb, and can say they were on this thing, which is on the pyramid.  Think of a slow motion roller coaster that moves in an arc from one side of the pyramid to the other, along a diagonal.  Charge rates to ride and you have a fund for preserving the pyramid for future generations.

Pyramids are for climbing and not to be used to ahhhhhhhhhhh fark unless you are pitching blocks off of the top, no harm is done.

The human condition is to explore and not to be given petty rules because king profit said so.

Radak: For those who have only seen the few photos spreading around the media, be sure to check out Makhorov's blog for more and better pictures. Awesome stuff.


Awesome, thanks!  I have never been but I love how there's a visible delineation of Cairo's border where the lights begin.
