    Though they can't say for sure, they seem to believe the evidence suggests that it is him.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    The Egyptians are such a mystery to us today. What they accomplished in the fields of math and engineering in their time is staggering and because of the language barrier we have no idea of how they did it. Throw in strange things like this and they are a mystery wrapped inside an enigma.

    Interesting stuff from the Gault site:

    "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
    --Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold."
    --Yeats

    “True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”

    --John W. Davis, founder of Davis Polk & Wardwell
