I'm talking, of course, about that ancient structure known as Stonehenge. Sure, those giant boulders are heavy, and granted there were no cranes or forklifts at the time it was built. Buy hey, you could get 30 to 40 grown men to surround a bus and lift it from point A to point B if you really needed to, so the fact that some of those boulders are stacked on top of each other doesn't keep me from yawning. Do you think the crown of the Taj Mahal - which is hundreds of feet off the ground - was feather weight?
One of the biggest reasons Stonehenge has been revered is because many believe it's some sort of ancient calendar. Well that's nice. I'm sure at some point someone planned an ancient barbeque and told his friends about it. And his friends then checked with "The Henge" and responded "Sorry Bob-ocles, I've got plans the day when the south-eastern star is in the upper left formation."
Of course, you get the occasional nuts who say that Stonehenge was not a man made structure at all, but rather one formed by aliens. I have one question if that's the case: how bored were these aliens with us that they came down, looked around, played with some rocks, and bolted?? Man, we must be dull!! Could you just see the aliens returning to their planet with this news?:
"President Zimzorg, we have returned from the populated green planet bearing unfortunate news. The humans are a worthless people and their land is a fruitless one."
"I see, well did you at least mess with their rocks?"
"Of course, Mr. President."
"Well done Cody! Their confusion will last for centuries!"
So you see, we as human beings are a very blessed race, the only creatures that God has endowed with the ability to do the amazing things that we've done. The 20th century saw more growth and advancement than all other centuries and time periods put together, and the 21st is well on its way to duplicating that feat! So, why...oh why...are we still hung up on a stupid old pile of rocks?!?!?!
