Ben Carson believes the pyramids were built to store grain.

I believe the pyramids were built so the Pharaohs could play the largest game of battle tops in the history of the world. The hermetically sealed chambers were built into the pyramids to allow damage to be compartmentalized in addition to isolating the pyramid operator from outside influences.

What do you believe? There are no bad ideas!

The pyramids count as a granary in each of your cities, so it seems pretty likely they were for storing grain to me.

I know I have said similar things half-jokingly before, but it is now certain that you must be certifiably batshit insane to be a viable Republican candidate for anything!

Anyone else remember the halcyon days of when Bobby Jindal said that Republicans had to stop being the party of stupid? See how well he's doing?

In reality, the burial place of the Pharaohs, but they could also be be location beacons required by the aliens that taught the ancients how to build the pyramids!

Whoa, maybe Michele Obama went back in time and had them built so that all ancient Egyptians could get into shape by taking simultaneous National step classes together
