Overheard at My House

Just when I thought everything was going so well with the roommates.

Flibby: Yeah, I've been to Peru. We went to Machu Picchu.

Male Roommate: WOW! That's cool. I've always wanted to do that. I heard they have giant rocks there that are so perfectly fitted together that you nothing grows between them.

Flibby: It's true. They're perfectly fit together. You can't even slide a piece of paper between them.

Male Roommate: How do you think they did that?

Flibby: Oh, I don't know.

Male Roommate: I do.

Flibby: Oh yeah? How?

Male Roommate: Giants.

Yes. He said "giants." He thinks those same giants built the pyramids, too. When I asked him how he figures that giants were there, he pulled out the Bible and started reading some scriptures to me.

There's more... stand by.

Oh no. Did he thump it before he started quoting scripture?

Oh, you must see the British sit-com Red Dwarf! Here's a bit of dialogue:

LISTER: What makes you think these aliens exist?
RIMMER: They must do, Lister! There's so many things that are strange and odd. So many things we don't have any explanation for.
LISTER: Like, um, why do intelligent people buy cinema hot dogs? Do you mean that sort of weird and mysterious thing?
RIMMER: No, Lister, I mean like the pyramids. How did they move such massive pieces of stone without the aid of modern technology?
LISTER: They had massive whips, Rimmer. Massive, massive whips.
