The plan was perfect.
“Dismantling the Egyptian pyramids seems like a difficult task,” said Phil, “but we can certainly accomplish it.”
Phil paused for a moment, this was the biggest presentation he had ever given, and honestly he was a little nervous. He looked out over the crowd, and tried to control his racing pulse. Taking a deep breath, he continued on.
“It will take seven years to assemble the cranes which will be used to move the stones. Laying the explosives will take an additional five years. There’s going to be a lot of chiseling. We will be digging a canal to the base of the pyramids, and the stone which we remove will be placed on barges. These barges will carry the stone far out into the ocean, where the stone will be dumped.”
“All told we have seven engineering crews working on this project around the clock, and the heads of those crews will each be giving presentations on this subject over the next couple of days. Are there any questions?”
A hand in the back of the room lifted timidly.
“Yes, you in the back.”
“Um, uh, why are we trying to dismantle the pyramids?”
