If the Egyptians stayed....
« on: May 24, 2006, 08:27:42 am »
At school today I was talking to some friends, and we wondered what the world would be like if the Egyptians survived.

Here's what we came up with:
                                            Egyptian computers would have huge keyboards with every Hiroglyph on it. They are so big that you need to use a mallet to press them.
                                            A passport the size of a large novel.

Let's see what you can come up with

Um, I could be heavily showcasing my ignorance, but I was under the impression that there are still Egyptians in the world.

Yep. They've still got a country named after them, even.
Not a winner anymore.

We'd have big graveyards with big stone markers to show where people were buri... Hey! Wait a second!

Question about the keyboards to prove how silly a guess it was - how do you think chinese people cope?

Nothing, they just lost their empire to the Romans and eventually became another middle eastern/african kingdom without any particular power compared to their neighbors.

They didn't die, they just faded into obscurity.

Very few civilisations have ever just been 'wiped out' in one blow.

Constantinople was sacked in 1204 and there was a split in the empire. Shortly later the Ottomans took most of the Byzantine territories. In 1453 came the fall of Constantinople and the death of the empire. I mean, duh. Don't they teach you anything in history?

And if you haven't taken history, don't they teach you anything in Age of Empires and Empire Earth?
