Over thousands of years, Egypt has seen many changes. Ancient Egypt was home to the great pyramids, while modern Egypt is home to the great pyramids. Here are a few more facts about pyramid-strewn Egypt:
- Apparently, millions of snakes live in Egypt’s ancient underground tombs, on the off-chance that a fedora-wearing American archaeologist may drop in someday.
- Egypt is home of the Great Sphinx. In ancient mythology, the Sphinx asked the riddle, “What has four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, and three legs in the evening?” The answer, of course, is a penguin in a blender.
- In ancient times, the Egyptian city of Alexandria had the greatest library in the world, where ancient homeless guys spent all day staring at stone tablets depicting porn.
