The Great Pyramid was built around 2560 BC, while Cleopatra lived around 30 BC. The first Pizza Hut opened in 1958, which is about 500 years closer.



This must have been the branch where Cleo popped in for her stuffed crust pizza:

There's also a KFC nearby too

/\ amazing (good or bad?) how that site has changed over the years. Went there 31 years ago, and the site was a good distance, taxi-driver distance (and didn't they know it) from anything built up. Returned 3 years ago and was in a hotel looking directly at one.

Trivia...there's an anachronism in Shakespeare's Anthony and Cleopatra wherein she says Let's to billiards!

It took 200,000 years for the human population on earth to reach 1 billion. It only took 200 years for that 1 billion to turn into 7 billion.

Would not be surprised if it drops back to 1 billion in the next couple of hundred years.

Having a cannula stuck in each hand makes things far more difficult - no dignity when you're unwell . :)

My Dad fell over and broke both wrists/forearms when he was nearly 70. Both arms (badly) set in plaster. At the (bloody awful West Cornwall) hospital, they gave him a sort of stick, bent at an angle on one end, with a sort of clip on it. This contraption was supposed to allow him to wipe his arse on his own.

He could barely even hold it, so god knows how he got on: A nurse used to come round regularly to help him wash etc. It must have been bloody humiliating.

That must have been wildly, unsuccessful.

In the credits of two well known children's films, due to political correctness one of the actors is now known as Penis Light Commercial Vehicle Lesbian.
