king-tut

I now present a joke SO BAD that you will never want to speak to me again.

The world’s first therapist actually lived in Ancient Egypt. His clients would come in and talk to him about all of their problems, people from all walks of life– scribes, merchants, priests, even the Pharaoh himself. The Pharoah’s appointment was from 1 to 2 every Wednesday, but he liked to talk so much that the appointment always ran over into his 2 PM client’s slot. The therapist didn’t mention it at first, because it WAS the Pharaoh, after all, the living incarnation of Ra, and he had no desire to be disrespectful, but after weeks stretched on, he politely told the Pharaoh that, while he didn’t want to interrupt him, he did tend to go over time. Fortunately, the Pharaoh was very understanding and said, “If I go over time by ten minutes, just let the next person in, even if I’m in the middle of a sentence.”

Sure enough, at his next appointment, the Pharaoh was in the middle of talking, when the next client knocked on the door and said politely, “Can I come in? Is someone in there?”

The therapist called back, “2:10! Come in!”

please dont hate me but

eric harris looks like king tut
im sor

and as dave cullen once said,

“Eric looked striking head-on: prominent cheekbones, hollowed
out underneath—all his features proportionate, clean-cut, and all-
American. The profile presented a bit of a problem however; his long,
pointy nose exaggerated a sloping forehead and a weak chin. The spiky
hair worked against him aesthetically, elongating his angular profile—
but it was edgy, and it played well with his swagger. The smile was his
trump card, and he knew exactly how to play it: bashful and earnest, yet
flirtatious.“

King Tut's Blade Made of Meteorite

King Tut was buried with a dagger made of an iron that literally came from space, says a new study into the composition of the iron blade from the sarcophagus of the boy king.

Using non-invasive, portable X-ray fluorescence spectrometry, a team of Italian and Egyptian researchers confirmed that the iron of the dagger placed on the right thigh of King Tut’s mummified body a has meteoric origin.

The team, which include researchers from Milan Polytechnic, Pisa University and the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, detailed their results in the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science.

Yesterday marked the anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb. In celebration, we bring you Park City’s Egyptian Theatre! Construction on the theatre began in 1922, around the time archaeologist Howard Carter discovered King Tutankhamun’s tomb. Inspired by this discovery and under the supervision of Egyptologist C.R. Berg, the theatre was adorned with obelisks, hieroglyphics, and lotuses, among several other Egyptian motifs. The Egyptian has been the iconic venue for the Sundance Film Festival since the inaugural Festival in 1985.
