    Great scene. Ford was sick and going to the bathroom all day and didn't want to do a long fight scene so he scripted that quick scene. :snicker:

    Proof the pyramids were built by aliens. Looks no different than any Muslim run city today. No innovation, no advancement, no progress. Just shitty weather and dispair.

    The city of Cairo has this rule that no real estate taxes are owed until the construction on a house or an apartment building is finished. They leave all construction materials on the roof or as you can see in the picture they are building some sort of extra room on the roof. Almost all the building are occupied as you see satellite dishes on every one.
