That's why the Egyptians built their stuff in Egypt.


I'm pretty sure those 2 things are completely unrelated. I mean, I'm pretty sure the Pyramids are built in in Egypt because that's where the Egyptians lived, not some awesome foresight about monuments better withstanding the test of time...

Egyptians didn't build the Great Pyramids anyway. They were built by...ALIENS.

Can we make jokes about how defacing it wasn't that big of a deal now or is it too soon?

Maybe we should go there and write some bad poetry about it while drunk on stale Heineken and harkarl.

In a few hundred years Iceland will have become the new Atlantis. A rumor from the time before the icecaps melted.

That monument will be the least of the things forgotten.

Mr Epeen Cool

Icecaps melting would actually increase the area of farmable and liveable space.


minus the farmable space that gets lost to rising sea levels?

i'd be interested to see the math on that......
It's the same math that proves people lived with dinosaurs, the earth is 7,000 years old, and the moon landings were faked.

Mr Epeen Cool


ooooh, *THAT* kind of math.
I can't quite wrap my head around it.

With my gallente Vision.. I can only interpret that the monument in question has freedom of expression and as such is free to express its best form.

As such It has rights and will be welcomed very well by our federation of freedom and open minds people

.... and the ALIENS (include predators) known about the oceanic weather of island dont be the better point to anchor a Strategic beacon to warp ( or better known as "the Piramids" )

A proper monument would be looking like something out of the game - a pod, a ship's model or even a space structure. What CCP built there is a gravestone and it just assumes its final look.
