The Great Pyramid of...Germany?

The Egyptian pyramids were constructed as burial monuments for one particular ruler or another.  However, an architect in Germany is planning to create a new pyramid.  Rather than having one dedicated to one individual, it’s being labeled as “a monument for all of us.”

Basically, anyone can reserve a burial spot in the monument for 700 euros, or $960 US.  “Each tomb container will contain an urn with the ashes of a deceased, while memorial stones hold capsules containing other remembrances.”

The proposed project will be more than twice the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza, and will take an estimated 30 years to complete.  What I find interesting about that is that it only took the Egyptians about 20 years to complete their largest pyramids, and they did that by hand.  Apparently, we’re a bunch of slackers today.
