February 2014 Where The Heck Is It?
Fringe Egyptologists have maintained for years that ancient Egyptians had helicopters and flying saucers, among other advanced items, but it is little known that they also had television. Their programs were surprisingly similar to the ones we have today. The photograph above is the opening scene of a popular series entitled "prw-shpr-ini", or in translation, "Extreme makeover", where the two host experts are discussing how they will remodel this distressed kitchen.
If you disagree with this description, here are a few questions for you:
Where do you think this scene is located?
What is the proper name for the blocks that the two men are discussing?
Bring your answers to the March 1 ARCE meeting where you can win prizes by answering these questions.
