Man throws stones at visitors from top of Khufu pyramid

Egypt Independent
May 1, 2019

A young man ascended to the top of Khufu pyramid this morning and threw stones at visitors in the archaeological area, al-Watan news website reported.

Security forces failed to control the situation for two hours before the man was arrested.

Security services are currently questioning the man to find out the motive behind the act.

The young infiltrator uprooted the triangle located at the top of the pyramid, said Ashraf Mahie Eddin, director of the archaeological area of the pyramids, explaining that the man entered the archaeological area with an ordinary ticket before ascending to the top of the pyramid.

I dare say they did Carrie.....but what were they supposed to do? Climbing up after him would probably endanger life.

Better to wait for thirst and hunger to drive him down....and then arrest and ascertain his motives (as if they care!)

Well a right daft 'prat to say the least..
Galileo worked it out, kinetic energy of falling objects.
It's a dead easy calculation if, your a genius.
v^2-u^2=2gS.
Take 1 pyramid @ 139 meters tall 1 x stone @ 1 kilo the increasing gravitational force plus our above calculation.
The thickness of the average skull 7mm = Splat!..... 8)
