There's an old article on EJMAS about ancient Egyptian stickfighting:

OH **** those 'punches' and 'blocks' are timed perfectly!
I like how he's replicated 3d moves that were rendered in 2d according to the 2d depictions.
HooRa. He moves pretty well for an old Giza. I mean, he's no Leon Sphinx, but he's OK.
And all you naysayers: you're in deNile. He's Set for a big career.

It reminds me of a lecture I once attended that was put on by members of the Emin Foundation (fruit-loops New Age/occult society). The lecturer explained, with absolute sincerity, that the ancient Egyptians were 14 foot tall telepaths and that the Earth's atmosphere was a lot denser back then. His evidence was that Egyptian tomb paintings show elongated figures with closed mouths (hence, they must have communicated without speech) "swimming" through the air.
He went on to note that King Arthur had pulled down Stonehenge because he was sick of all the UFOs using it as a landing platform, but I'm afraid that by that point he'd rather lost credibility.
Are you sick? Your voice sounds a little Horus.
