For those of you wondering, this is what's left of the pyramid it came from. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyramid_of_Amenemhat_III_(Dahshur)

The Great Pyramids of Giza were once covered with polished white marble with gold capstone. It was said that during moonlit nights it was possible to navigate the deserts from the light reflected from them. Wish I could have seen that. Edit: I've been reminded they were polished limestone, not marble.

What's written on it?

Translated: "Not a pyramid, a reverse funnel."

Think about how the hell did they polish it! I want to know that.

Would like to see an HD rendering of what the pyramid looked like in its prime.

The crack on the bottom is where Nic Cage broke it open to look for clues.

It’s astonishing to me how precise each side is perfectly symmetrical. Also the engravings are cut with such precision. How they could accomplish the symmetry like this on a large scale without modern technology and equipment is remarkable.

Wonder what the stargate address on that thing points too.

No Terry Pratchett references in here?

Blows my mind that the MIDDLE Kingdom is 2000 B.C. That's hard to fathom something being that fucking old.

Thanks for posting this beautiful thing, Pal! Is there a name for it, or how we can find out what the inscription says/means?

It says, “Be sure to drink your Ovaltine.” For anyone wondering.
