They opened it to the public after they looted everything that’s valuable? Took them a long time! So people can show us mummies in Pyramids, BUT NOT ALIENS IN AREA 51??? The ancient Egyptians might’ve been smart enough to build these pyramids but I don’t think they ever imagined they’d be an attraction thousands of years later.

over 4,000 years ago the ancient Egyptians ruled a significant part of the world and even though they left behind a detailed legacy of arts and architecture they also left behind a host of mysteries that even today the most expert scholars have been unable to solve probably the most enduring mystery of all is how they were able to build not only the pyramids but many other incredible structures without machinery or expert technology not to mention their near-perfect alignments to specific astronomical and cardinal points these near impossible feats have led many to believe that intelligent extraterrestrial beings visited earth at that time bringing with them advanced technologies knowledge and compasses and made the seemingly impossible possible of course the idea that ancient aliens existed is not taken seriously by the experts and has received very little credible attention however these five fascinating ancient Egyptian mysteries have been studied in depth and to date all remain unexplained number one being second in line on the mysterious factor behind the Great Pyramids of Giza who were the sea peoples for nearly a century a band of mysterious maritime warriors repeatedly attacked Egypt Turkey Syria Palestine and other territories and no one could match the power of their mighty warships they became known as the Sea Peoples an unknown civilization who wreaked havoc on ancient Egypt and featured heavily in inscriptions and carvings left by the Egyptians who documented their reign of terror but it seems that despite these detailed records of their attacks little or nothing is known about who these mysterious people were where they came from or where they went one of the first references dates back to the 13th century BC during the reign of Merantau who claims to have killed 6,000 of them are serious seafarers after they allied themselves with the Libyans however the most detailed accounts comes from Ramsay's a third who fought the series of catastrophic battles against the sea peoples around 1170 BC one inscription reads they desolated its people and its land was like that which has never come into being he describes the Sea Peoples as consisting of a mixture of tribes including the Sheridan pala set denyen shekel ash and others what isn't known is why the Sea Peoples attacks in the first place although it has been speculated they may have been displaced from their homeland by either famine or natural disaster although this is only speculation whatever their origins the Sea Peoples return to Egypt in the mid 12th century BC intent on conquering Egypt but Ramses the third led his forces to the defense of his kingdom and as a defeating the sea People's Army on land he decimated their fleet at the 1175 be seen battle at the delta were Egyptian actions lined the banks of the Nile and rained arrows on the enemy's ships the war left Egypt considerably weakened but it also signified the end of the sea peoples reigns and as mysteriously as they appeared they disappeared having been decisively defeated they vanished from history leaving behind questions that still linger today what is the Dendera light the temple of dendera dedicated to the goddess Hathor is one of the most mysterious ancient temples built by the egyptians it's located 2.5 kilometres southeast of dendera and is one of the best-preserved of all the egyptian complexes especially at central temple that remained buried by sand unburned until the middle of the nineteenth century when it was unearthed by Auguste Mariette the main temple features a relief as unlike any other ancient Egyptian arms and is commonly known as the Dendera light the images engraved on earth have raised the questions of just how far advanced the Egyptians really were it features an object resembling a light bulb and has convinced conspiracy theorists and alternate history fanatics that the ancient Egyptians were given the power of electricity 4000 years ago by Tang travelers or ancient aliens and the light source enabled them to construct the pyramids and other tombs and monuments they created people believe the bulb-like object is reminiscent of an early light bulb known as crooks tomb inside the bulb is a filament represented by a snake that leads to a lotus flower that represents a socket and a wire leads to a small box in which the air guard is kneeling beside the ball is a pillar but they perceives an insulator and the baboon as a warning that the device could be dangerous if not used correctly this claim is backed up by the lack of CERN's found in the Egyptian tombs ruling out the possibility that they were lit by fire and electricity was used instead however it's worth pointing out that most Egyptologists have dismissed this claim saying there is evidence of certain but seeing as we are talking over 4000 years ago it's not visible to the naked eye here is a mock-up of how the light would look and work as displayed in the mystery park in Switzerland the mainstream interpretation paints an entirely different story the relief is a mythological depiction of a jet pillar and a lotus flower spawning a snake within that represents aspects of Egyptian mythology the jet pillar is a symbol of stability which is also understood to be the backbone of the goddess iris in the carvings the four horizontal lines forming the center of the jet are enhanced by human arms stretching out as if the JED were a backbone the arms hold up the snake within the lotus flower the snake coming from the Lotus symbolizes fertility linked to the annual Nile flood it sounds reasonable however there are many who was still unwilling to accept this explanation and who remain convinced the Dendera light is proof ancient Egyptians and the ancient aliens are one in the same I would love to hear thoughts on this one the life and death of King Tutankhamen following extensive excavations in the late 18-hundreds many archaeologists thor's the valley of the kings in Egypt had yielded all its secrets however British archeologist and Egyptologist Howard Carter had a hunch but there was still more to find and for six fruitless years he searched the valley looking for the tomb of an obscure king who ruled 1332 to 1323 BC his financial backer Lord Carnarvon was on the brink of calling off the excavation but Carter convinced him to stick with it for one more season in November 1922 Carter discovered Tutankhamun's near intact tomb the King's mummified body lay within a nest of three golden coffins which fitted snugly one inside the other like a set of Russian dolls two of the coffins were made of wood covered with gold sheets but the innermost coffin was made from thick sheets of solid beaten gold but weigh in astonishing 110 point four kilograms or 243 pounds these coffins were encased in a rectangular stone sarcophagus and the tomb was packed with priceless treasures that included a gold throne crown and Cobra as well as the golden burial mask the find was the most significant discovery of the 20th century and revealed that Tutankhamun was about 17 when he died and was likely to have inherited the throne at the age of just 8 or 9 he is thought to have been the son of Akhenaten commonly known as the heretic king and he ruled for approximately ten years most likely aided by powerful advisers however despite his mummy being surrounded by valuable treasures and his coffin being most expensive in the world in comparison to other Egyptian Kings Tutankhamun's tomb was tiny in fact it was the smallest royal tomb in the valley of the kings and was not a tomb for fitting of a king but rather a hurried put together chamber cut into the floor of the main valley this prompted speculation that Tutankhamun died suddenly and his intended tomb was a much grander spacious affair that was not finished at the time of his death and was later occupied by his successor I the surprisingly small size of Tutankhamun's tomb also led to suggestions but they may be parts to it that are undiscovered however just this year experts have dismissed this possibility uncertainty still surrounds the death of the young king with many believing he was weak and sickly and may have been assassinated or died in a chariot or hunting accident but in 2010 scientists found traces of malaria parasites in his mummified remains unrevealed that malaria combined with a degenerative bone disease might have been the real cause of death mystery solved not quite in 2018 a new theory came to light after analysis of leather armor found in the boy king's tomb it revealed that was well used and had probably seen action contrary to other theories Tutankhamun may have met his death in battle if this were true it would counter the idea that he was a weak and sickly leader this theory could also explain why Tutankhamun had no heart which could be a sign that he died far from home and by the time his body arrived back to perform the mummification process his heart was to decay to preserve despite this new research the cause of Tutankhamun's death is still one of ancient Egypt's biggest mysteries and the source of considerable debate and with no records found of his final days is likely to remain that way the foreseeable future the Lost Land of Punt the mysterious Land of Punt is a Lost Kingdom and the existence of the region is only known because of its mention in ancient Egyptian records although its exact location is still undiscovered the writings suggest it was a rich place that prospered between 20 450 BC and 1155 BC and was a trading partner of Egypt that produced gold aromatic resins evany ivory and wild animals a relief located in Upper Egypt shows a variety of trees grew in punt suggesting it was a lush tropical land and for many years researchers have been trying to pinpoint the location of the mysterious land the most recent research indicates it was in Africa another relief found at modern-day Luxor depicts the result of a mysterious overseas expedition to the Land of Punt ordered by the Queen in around 1477 BC and sheds more light on the elusive land the image known as the portico of Punt shows five ships carrying 210 men loaded with gold trees and exotic animals like leopards baboons and giraffes the ships are surrounded by a variety of fish some of which zoologist identified as species that live along the coast of africa reinforcing claims but punt was indeed somewhere in that region but the punt was in Africa how did the Egyptians make the hazardous journey to reach it while it seems there was no end to the ancient Egyptians talents and his thought they mastered the Seas as well as the land proof of this came in a series of discoveries made along a section of the Red Sea coast when archaeologists excavated a dried-up Lagoon known as Mercer colossus they discovered traces of an ancient harbour that had helped launched early voyages onto the open ocean man-made caves in the area contained various shipbuilding materials and the remains of one is the oldest seagoing ships ever found this evidence shows the Egyptians were not only skilled at creating incredible land monuments but were also competent shipbuilders these recent discoveries have ignited a new theory on where the Lost Land of Punt is and how the Egyptians managed to reach it it seems the ever resourceful Egyptians could sail down the Nile before disassembling their boats and carrying them overland to the Red Sea reassembling them to do trade with punt before repeating the process on the way back now this seems extreme but then again they build the pyramids further proof of this was identified in 2010 when researchers discovered hair samples from three thousand-year-old mummified baboons found in tombs in the Valley of the Kings these would have been the pets of the elite that were buried with their masters the ancient hair samples were compared with the hair samples of modern animals living in Eritrea Ethiopia Somalia Yemen Uganda and other similar countries and concluded it was most likely the animals originating in eastern ethiopia and eritrea a similar discovery adds weight to the africa theory after archaeologists identifying a depiction of a bird on the portico of Punt as a secretary bird a large bird of prey found only in africa particularly around coastal regions and Sudan so it appears science is moving ever closer to discovering the location of the Lost Land of Punt and a place that was forward to be just a myth appears to be an actual place just still to be pinpointed the mysterious Great Sphinx the Great Sphinx is located on the Giza Plateau about 10 kilometres west of Cairo and sits adjacent to the Great Pyramids of Giza it is orientated due east facing the Rising Sun the enormous structure is one of the most mysterious of ancient Egypt and despite modern research no one really knows why it was built and what its purpose was it's the largest surviving sculpture from the ancient world measuring 73.5 meters in length or 241 feet and impart twenty meters or 65 feet in height and it was carved from a single block of limestone and is one of the largest single stone statues in the world for thousands of years the Sphinx was partially covered in sand and it wasn't until the 1900s when the sand was cleared that his full body was exposed is believed that the Sphinx was constructed in the 4th dynasty starting in 26:13 BC by Pharaoh Khafre who had the stone shaped into a lion with his own face cards on it although some archaeologists believe it is much older than that but because it is one of the few ancient Egyptian constructions with no inscriptions on its surface it's impossible to date it with any certainty one of the main peculiarities about the sculpture is that its head is out of proportion to its body and it's been speculated but the head we see today may not have been the original and could have been recarved several times by succeeding pharaohs and may even have started out as a ram or a hawk also various unsuccessful repairs over the years have altered the facial proportions however considering its around 4,500 years old it's still in remarkable condition although it's not completely unscathed its nose and ritual beard are missing as well as its cobra embellished headrests it was initially believed that the Sphinx lost its nose to Napoleon's men but 18th century drawings revealed that the nose of the Sphinx was missing before Napoleon's rival and it's now generally believed that it was shot off by the Turks the beard is now displayed in the British Museum but perhaps the most fascinating thing about the Sphinx is what lies beneath it it's known that there are three passages into or under it and the tomb of Osiris is located 95 feet below the surface but in the back of the structure there is evidence that there are many more passages in 1995 workers renovating a nearby parking lot uncovered a series of tunnels and pathways two of which plunged further underground close to the Sphinx also archeologists have found evidence of anomalies in the form of hollow spaces or chambers a few meters below the ground between the paws and that either side of the Sphinx despite these fascinating discoveries the Egyptian government will not allow any further examination the smog humidity and wind meena Sphinx is crumbling and the cost of keeping up with repairs and restoration is huge for now the focus is on preservation rather than further explorations because of this it seems we'll have to wait many more years before the Great Sphinx gives up all her secrets so that's five truly fascinating ancient Egyptian mysteries I don't know what it is but myself and so many others are drawn to the ancient Egyptians their way of life how they did what they did and the mysteries they left behind it's incredible and a topic I wish to explore even further let us know in the comments what you find so interest thanks for watching you

without further ado please help me invite any way to the stage what's up Nashville how you doing thank you very much for the introduction I hope I live up to it this speech I wrote today is called no coupons dad we need to get rid of the prime rib coupons the tourists come in for the $10.99 prime rib drink ice water and never tip it's a lost leader he said no one is going to pay full price to buy steak from Chinese people we have to compete on price you sell steak because you said people wouldn't pay full price for Chinese food you hire a white manager to front as the owner and we still sell it with the coupon Eddie immigrants can't sell anything full price in America my father said my name is Eddie Wong I was born in America my ancestors are from China and my parents were born in Taiwan I sell Taiwanese Gua Bao for a full price in America my father Lewis Wong felt like a guest in this country an immigrant privileged to be here he was willing to work three times as hard for the same opportunity for the same pay for the same work simply to live in a country where he could grow his hair out without judgment those were days when he thought being a fragmented human in America was still better than being a whole human in Taiwan he knows better now back then we didn't know our power we weren't aware what we offered beyond laundromats and styrofoam meeting threes but as decades past we've seen that we are America immigrants have graduated from Roach coaches who approved carry outs and the perception that were inferior to the Berkeley's Stanford's and at times we've gained admission to the interior our work has been certified at every level leaving all theories of genetic inferiority or speciality such as but not limited to extra ligaments or brain functions catalyzed by green tea in its wake this all happened before I reached puberty but the one thing that didn't change with the discounts we continued to honor the coupons being a natural born American I refuse to see myself as a guest or alien no matter how many people told me to go back to China I knew deep down in my soul that there was nothing inferior about my matter there wasn't anything in my marrow that should make my soul fallow I was born on the same soil as every other white man in this country I stood for the same pledge I breathed the same air and I demanded to be seen as a whole human worthy of the same opportunities for the same work for the same pay because that is what America promised us the key to my America was a pork bun a familiar carb stuffed with two ounces of all-natural hormone and antibiotic-free Hunan red cooked pork belly topped with cilantro crushed peanuts and Taiwanese red sugar nothing of one origin nothing of one mind a narrative spanning three continents for $4 Plus New York sales tax while many people are happy to sell Chinese food cheap hot and fast I sold a history masquerading as a sandwich we didn't design Bauhaus like other Chinese restaurants it we didn't feel the need to have fried rice or corn starch or Dragons anywhere I refuse to buy into the American Chinese starter pack and created my own featuring a multicultural staff without uniforms cooking Taiwanese Chinese food against the hip-hop background every customer was forced to encounter my identity inside Bauhaus and those sandwiches continue to represent my American immigrant experience I did though I did all this in spite of the hurdles American structuralism put in front of me and like many other immigrants I persevered every time the goalposts moved I put my head down and I ran toward another first down I accepted that I'd probably have to run three football fields – your average white male Americans won I accept this reality and I hope that you will one day accept me as a whole American but when I am finally accepted and I've carved out a space to speak I will ask you why why should I work three times as hard why should this take three generations why do we have to do this in spite of America why must we continue to be labeled other and why does the dominant monoculture insist on issuing these coupons what has my existence done to upset any of the values America is founded on because when I look in the mirror these days I don't see anything wrong I touch my skin and I no longer feel shame it's taken three decades two memoirs and six TV shows but I don't run from my face anymore I embrace it because I am satisfied with the way this face represents me and I know that this face should be as American as it wants to be we are only foreign until we're family and narratives are the bridge to familiarity I believe there are truths we share that no one no time nor place could ever extinguish from our existence on some plane in some space we share these truths and tell these stories that no coupon could discount I know this because I've seen it in a bow as immigrants we must tell our stories if we want to be understood at full market value I hope that one day America will acknowledge my identity and accept that I am a yellow blooded whole American entitled to equal rights because nowhere in our creation story is whiteness tied to the definition of an American there is a lie I've seen told to white immigrants somewhere between the first and second generation which convinces them that their struggle is the American one that no other immigrant struggle can be understood as such in the inequalities against anyone wearing an SPF lower than 50 are somehow ordained this is the lie that has propelled Trump to the White House and whoever wrote this lie voted for this lie or turns a blind eye to this lie needs to stand with us today and dispel it because the rest of America has to live it when we finally stand up in unison as one nation against the issuance of coupons against anyone this will be in America I'm proud to be part of until then I'll stand in the margin I will tell my story and I will demand that you pay full price [Applause]
