Say Pax, what is your goal?

You provide coordinates of ancient structures, but whatfor?

So people stop yaddahing about the impossibility to build pyramids?

I find it interesting and educative.

Realy?

Is this an example of a pyramid to you:

That's what Pax posted just before.

I like site-seeing too, but is that what this thread is about?

I just want to know.

For myself this has been an educational pastime, I know a lot more now than I did before I started... Thanks for your input...

But Pax, you didn't tell us about your intention with this thread.

Is it a mystery we should unravel ourselves or something??

Why should we know about the coordinates of these ancient structures? We all know how to Google.

And you could as well have started a thread about the colors of these structures without telling us why you were interested in these colors, and then again I would have asked you.... why?

I don’t understand your concerns over this thread, Google is nice, but you have to know there’s something to search for, I thought this thread would be a convenient way of letting folks know these places existed, and make contributions of their own...

Maybe it’s because I’m American, the only ruins most of us see are parts of our crumbling inner cities...

Pax, I told you why I wanted to know what this thread is all about.

We all know how to Google, we can all find these places if we want to.

I just assumed you tried to lead us all up to some point.

But apparently, I was wrong.

Mea culpa.
