I love it when we suck.

And by "we" I mean "the history of human civilization".

Okay, so a few weeks ago we were at long last watching Alien vs. Predator with adjectivegirl. See, now muneybags6 and I like this movie, campy piece of violence that it is, because we like the female main, the way the fodder characters were developed (better than non-fodder characters in most movies), and hey, Predator's just a pimp. But then, the plot point about the pyramids of the world and how aliens built them pops up, and Sherry goes, hey, why do we never give ourselves credit for those pyramids? Wherefore comst the aliens in the grand scheme of pyramid? Those are our fucking pyramids, man. Just nab you a couple million slaves and some nearby stone quarries and boom- pyramids. Now this is hardly limited to AVP, aliens having something to do with building pyramids, seems to be a thing, but hardly an original thing, right?

Well Michael Bay has not had his say yet! C'mon, guys! Why don't you give us cred for those damn pyramids? Those Egyptians were a pretty smart lot! Right fuckers sometimes, sure, but I'm sure they could come up with at least a damn pyramid.

But wait, there's more! This according to the last issue of Empire:

Egyptian hieroglyphics ...turn out to be depictions of Transformers who visited Earth.

WhatwhatWHAT? Okay, guys, really now. First you take our Macs and say they're copied off Megatron. Okay, fine, at least that explains away any Independence Day-style plot devices. But then you take our pyramids away from us- again- and now you're taking written language? Possibly the greatest achievement of the civilized human mind? Michael Bay and large sect of humanity, why don't you give us credit for our ape brains? I don't recall ever seeing that heiroglyph that looks like a semi! Or maybe they transformed into owls and little squiggles of water back in the day, who knows? Alls I know is between this and SaberJew, summer 2009 cannot come fast enough!

Edit: witchtree had this to contribute:

I love SabreJew! ...I'm not sure if I'm being ironic about that or not.
