TRUTH !!
When first constructed around 2500 BC. The pyramids were paper white and as smooth as glass, and topping the pyramid was a golden capstone that gleamed in the desert sun. It was an amazing spectacle. The pyramids somewhat stayed in this state until the Arab invasion of Egypt around AD 500. The Arab invaders stripped the pyramid of it's smooth limestone and built a huge section of Cairo. Many of the Mosques and Palaces of Cairo consist of the Ancient stones of the pyramids. Quite sad actually.

Bored? Not a chance! It keeps me on my toes (or makes my head spin).
