Isn't it sad that we are the *experts* on Egypt, yet we know so little compared to others? (Real Egyptologists) It's sad, but almost laughable. :?

Neither can I! But, my brother is bent on destroying my spirits. He says Egyptology is useless to society. But, i believ if we learn how the Egyptians made the pyramids, and if it is efficiant without the risk of lives, we could cut the prices of these heavy duty machinery, and learn from them. They were recourceful, and it is important to understand our history as not to repeat its mistakes. AHey, that sounds good. Maybe I should put that in my portfolio! :wink:

I don't think that Egyptology is a useless field. It's history! Think of how much we've learned from history already. It's heritage (Yeah, so Egyptian heritage isn't ours, but it's somebodys!). People need to know how their ancestors lived. How they were able to survive in the same country that they live or lived in. And besides that, it's interesting! All of the art and everything we can learn about the Pharaohs. Others may think it's useless knowledge, but if it's interesting, why not learn about it and help others to learn about it also.

Nintendo and Gameboys and stuff like that, they don't serve a useful purpose, but almost everybody has them. So if others think the Egyptology serves a useful purpose, maybe everyone's interested in that, too.

Yeah. But, tough luck explaining that to my brother. He sounds like a child doesn't he? But he's not. Anyway, Egyptologists have to endure no air conditioning. I like it in the 70's at the highest, and the coldest in the 40's, and that's no Egyptian weather. 8) :lol: :) :D :wink: So, I hope they invent some kinda bubble-like forcefield that's air conditioned, cuz I could never live in those conditions. Guess it's how you were brought up, huh? Also, there are scorpions. My dad's worried that I'll be stung by one. It's a reasonable fear, though. TTYL!

Well, I've never heard aboutu any Egyptologists ever being stung by scorpions, but I do know that the heat isn't as bad as here in some ways, because there's no humidity. In Missouri it gets up to about 90 and the humidity is so high you feel like you're melting. In Egypt there's little or no humidity almost all the time.

Well, I always find myself saying I could endure something, and when it's my turn to endure it, it's unbearable. :lol: :D :) :wink:

I doubt that by the time you're old enough to excavate they'll have something to keep you cool all the time while you're excavating. Besides, isn't half the fun of going somewhere surviving the elements? Going to Egypt and not getting hot and sandy would be like going to Alaska and there being no snow! How silly would that be?

You're right. But, it's nice to imagine. Right now, I'm in a house about 68 F, and I'm wearing a thin, fuzzy shirt, and I'm hot. Isn't that sad? :lol: :D :) :wink: :roll:

it isn't that sad. maybe you get warm faster than a lot of peopel, but it is no big deal. if you really want to become an egyptologist then u will be able to do what you have to do to achieve your dream. I have to say that i agree with Akhenaten on the subject of you would be missing half of the fun if you brought that kind of technology with you. I mean i would want to experience the excavating and excitement in the sam kind of situations as the other egyptologistsbefore me.

Well, I don't know. I'm a technology girl, and I like to be comfortable, too. So, maybe I'd bring it anyway. :wink: :lol:
