Am I the only Swinging Richard at this site that has ever worked with his hands?

Does no one understand the concept of using animal intestines as a water level?

How can building and tearing down a mud gutter be as easy as taking intestines out of a bucket and holding the ends up to a stone?

As far as moving big stones. If you get enough people on it you can move just about anything. The Egyptians had a big enough work force to move the stones,


I gots the moving and stacking of the heavy stones. Just as simple as all the other stuff. It's just that those drawings are long gone so i have to do them over again. I HATE that.

Why would you drag sumpin when you can pull stones on top of rollers?

Ah. Why do I get the feeling that his former masters last names rhyme with words like "Astro" or "Spavez" or "Sputin?"

Did you see where a long time ago Orac started in with the nasty on me, I finished it and called him an Obama voter and Amaranth Rose II came in and yelled at me first?
