I wasn't sure where they were, besides Egypt, but I knew about these other pyramids. But now they are going to make them more accessable to visitors. I wanna go!!!! but I can't afford it - darn it until then, I'll just have to read about them, and share with you guys! http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090316/ap_on_re_mi_ea/ml_egypt_pyramids_5 so, did you know about the bent pyramid? or the red one - about about the step pyramid?

they are a logical response to the questions mankind is always asking about itself and other life

Ever read any Elizabeth Peters books? In her real life, she was an archaelogist. So her fiction tends to center a lot in Egypt. Sometimes other fascinating places, but you get to learn a lot of history while being entertained with wild chases and funny romances. So I know about those pyramids from her series about Amelia Peabody. (the first few are fun, but they get boring the further into the series you get)

I tried, even listened to one all they way thru, but it sure didn't get me wanting to read more - but I think it was one of the later books, was kind of far fetched to me, thought it might be better if it had gone the extra few steps to being science fiction

Egypt, Greece and the Holy Land - just because there is so much old stuff there to look at!

I didn't know about the bent pyramid or the red one. That is really neat that visitors will have more access to them. I probably will never be able to see them in person. I have decided that virtual vacations are the best I'm going to get. That's what I love about the internet and people sharing different things I may not have seen. I can't wait to see pictures of the inside of the pyramids!

Yeah, me too. I actually watch even the crazy ideas of aliens and stuff just to see more shots of the insides of the old places

In my country you can find thousands of pyramids so i really tested those pyramids under that pyramid, i kept vegetables so those are fresh fruits even after one month.

I was just reading about this this morning! But, I must say, that the "bent" pyramid doesn't look all that bent to me...

It's called the bent pyramid because it changes angle halfway up. It was one of the earliest pyramids, and they either got the angle wrong and had to modify it to maintain stability, or they had to finish it in a hurry. The step pyramid is the oldest true pyramid and we actually know the name of the architect - Imhotep. It's interesting that they are planning to open them to tourists, it would be fascinating to visit it.

I know about the Mexican/Central American pyramids, and I have LOTS of good reasons to never go to Mexico - first and formost is my corn allergy.
