Hoytelous Jones has discovered the technology that ancient Egyptians utilized to construct the pyramids.

I thought that was ramps and slaves, but I guess I was wrong.

 

I'm raising capital to establish a developing technologies organization and to demonstrate the existence of this ancient technology. 

 

I've conversed with a patent attorney to ensure that the technology doesn't exist.

 

An ancient technology that doesn't exist.... riiiiight!

 

$33USD raised by 5 people in 4 days

Riiiight!

Mercifully, no-one has signed up to pay $10,000 to see a demonstration of this technology. Yet.

Still $2,749,967 short of his goal.

OK He has discovered the technology that the Egyptians used. Hmmm then he says "I've conversed with a patent attorney to ensure that the technology doesn't exist."  OK does it exist or it does not exist? If he has "discovered the technology that the Egyptians used" then he is contradictory
and if it exist like originally postulated then why a Patent Attorney?... prior art etc

It is flexible funding, so even tho the target is 2.5M, he will get anything that is contributed at the end of the campaign - genius.

Did you know that if you say the word 'gullible' very slowly, it sounds like 'orange'?

It is now widely accepted that that the pyramid builders were not slaves. They were volunteers.

They were volunteers who were fed and housed by the government (the pharoah).

Posthumously?

"The Egyptians started building the Great Pyramid of Giza on August 23, 2470 B.C., according to controversial new research that attempts to place an exact date on the start of the ancient construction project."
