Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 03, 2017

The mysteries of the pyramids have deepened with the discovery of what appears to be a giant void within the Khufu, or Cheops, monument in Egypt. It is not known why the cavity exists or indeed if it holds anything of value because it is not obviously accessible. Japanese and French scientists made the announcement after two years of study at the famous pyramid complex. They have been using a technique called muography, which can sense density changes inside large rock structures. The Great Pyramid, or Khufu's Pyramid, was constructed during the reign of Pharaoh Khufu between 2509 and 2483 BC. At 460 feet in height, it is the largest of the Egyptian pyramids located at Giza on the outskirts of Cairo. ScanPyramids has already detected a smaller void on the northern face The new cavity is perhaps 30m long and several meters in height.

"What we are sure about is that this big void is there; that it is impressive; and that it was not expected as far as I know by any sort of theory." -- Mehdi Tayoubi of the HIP Institute, Paris.

I have no doubt we will find the evidence of alien collusion from outer space in building the pyramids once we find a way to enter this secret chamber.

Or not.

Obviously it holds the Whitey Tapes and Trump's tax returns.

Or, it might hold an ancient library.

This was the same technique, muon tomography, that Zatoichi was using with his group.

Everything you've ever wanted to know about muon tomography but were afraid to ask.

Tell Trump there's a penis extending cream in there and we'll be invading Egypt the following week.

But what if the Stargate is there? Sorry dude. We have to open it. Have you not heard of Pandora's Box? We have to at least peek! It's in our nature.

We could find one of these:
or this:

It is doubtful we ever know. It will remain sealed like the chamber below the Spinx. Egyptology isn't interested in new information, it isn't a science it is a religion. They already know all they need to know.

What we wont find is a corpse, any evidence whatsoever it was ever used as a tomb, or any inscription or hieroglyph that suggest it was built by the Old Kingdom.
