Today’s news of looting and vandalism of Egyptian sites and museums comes from Upper Egypt. Time to start focusing on the Thebes and Saqqara areas.
‘According to antiquities official Mohamed Megahed, “immense damages to Abusir and Saqqara” were reported. Looters allegedly have gone into tombs that had been sealed and destroyed much of the tombs and took artifacts.
‘“Only the Imhotep Museum and adjacent central areas were protected by the military. In Abusir, all tombs were opened; large gangs digging day and night,” he said.
‘According to Megahed, storage facilities in South Saqqara, just south of Cairo has also been looted. He did mention it was hard to ascertain what, and how much, was taken.
‘He said Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) officials “are only today [Sunday] able to check on the museums storage, but early reports suggest major looting.”
‘He called on the international archaeology community to issue a “high alert” statement on Old Kingdom remains and Egyptian antiquities in general, “and please spread the word to law enforcement officials worldwide.”
‘Looters of museums, “who may be encouraged by outside Egypt entities, may try to use general confusion to get things out of the country.”

Reblog if you ever feel like you're the only one your teacher is staring at in class
LOL, in my Honors Algebra II class in high school, I’d legit be looking down at my book (I was in the middle section of the classroom) and my teacher would look up (dude had no peripheral vision, my friends were knocked out on the wings) and say, “wake up, Juvy.” LOL, yeah, okay I would occaisionally fall asleep, but he never got me then! LOL, only when I was *actually* awake and trying to decipher what he was saying. *Ah, memories*
ewewewewewewewewewewewewewew You’re not going to post one where he’s, you know, forgot his buttons? You wou’dn’t do that….
Ooooh, which one is that, then? I had to force myself out of my Ed folder. Although, I did see some Coz in that folder and was like, “bb, you’re in the wrong folder, love.” :D Anyway….lack of buttons…need to find that one.
eh, what the fuck are you doing, Juvs?! That’s a hip pic. A HIP pic. You’re cruel.
I KNOWWWW. Man, this is going to be counterproductive. I have to get ready for work, lol. D: I’m just going to be thinking of…that. Ah well, it’s too late, I’ll just post like 2-3 more and be done with it. :D
In a parallel universe, the audio for Brian Greene’s interview on Fresh Air went up three years in the future. But in our universe, it went up right now and you can listen to him explain string theory and parallel universes and all sorts of other things right here.
Nice, I’m reblogging this in the distinct hope I can listen to this later…
