And I Haven't Even Seen Machu Picchu Yet

Italian researchers have used new remote sensing technology to discover a huge adobe Pyramid beneath the surface in Peru's Cahuachi desert region.

"Featuring a 300-by-328-foot base, the newly discovered pyramid consists of at least "four degrading terraces which suggest a truncated pyramid similar to the Grand Pyramid." With seven levels, this imposing monument was sculpted from the landscape and enhanced by large adobe walls."

If this financial meltdown kicks up a gear or two, and things get real up in here, we are gonna realise how vastly inferior we are to the people who did stuff like this.
