Pyramids are final proof that government should intervene when a handful of people have way too much money while others have none.
The pharaohs' contribution to pyramids was to direct that they be built and that they be buried inside of them. These starkly beautiful monstrosities are testaments to their petulance. Our admiration of them is testament to our awe of meaningless power and the unlikely event that we'll ever be able to rid ourselves of it. (Corollary: If Tom Cruise et al don't have their money taken from them by government decree, our civilization will be looked at in shocked amazement, in the same way as one stands in shocked amazement when surrounded by the insane splendor of the pharaohs, as preserved by the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.)
Walking around a desert landscape with three massive pyramids is like being in a surreal painting of a surreal planet with bizarre geometeries.
Camels are weird, as if thrown together from leftover lumps of thick mud. (Clods of very strong coffee?)
Maybe camels are reincarnated pharaohs--that would explain their haughty demeanour, beautiful ugliness, and outcast status in the animal kingdom. (Further evidence that animals are smarter than people.)
Drinking four cups of coffee (just so that you can practise saying "another one, please" in Arabic) right before your next 3 hour Arabic lesson is probably not a good idea.
