    OVER 3,OOO YEARS OLD, IT’S OLDER THAN HE’LL EVER BE WHY THE FUCK WOULD HE RUIN IT?!

      Sheer ignorance, my friend. Sad isn’t it?

        It is. If someone did that to his nation’s historical sites he’d be all bent out of shape. I’m not Egyptian and I’m hurt. I hope there’s no backlash

          I fully agree. The world’s ancient artifacts belong to all of us. It makes me angry when people deface them and others can’t enjoy them in the future.
