Energy was needed for both paper making and pyramid building.

** Actually, not many people realize this but the pyramids are made
of paper. The Pharoahs were big on recycling but their technology
was not quite mature, so the old newspapers began to pile up.
Pretty soon folks were climbing way up on the top of the pile just to
dump another week of half-read Cairo Sphinx-Mirrors where it
wouldn't extend the heap any closer to their neighborhoods.

Finally, when the whole mountain was absolutely hopeless,
the Egyptians revolted and buried the Pharoah under it.

After century after century of desert winds, the sides are
smooth and the ink has been sanded and bleached away,
but if you climb deep into the tunnels of the pyramids, you
can still read the funnies.
