Business Agent: Mr. Ali, you are the head of the Son's of Sanballat?

Ali: That's right, my tribe has been designing buildings for generations.

Agent: I have a contract for you if you are interested

Ali: Oh?

Agent: My employer is the Pharoah of Egypt and he wants you to build him a pyrimid

Ali: What in the world is a peer-mud?

Agent: Well you see it is a five hundred foot tall structure shaped sort of like an arrowhead

Ali: What is it's purpose

Agent: It's a tomb

Ali: for how many?

Agent: just for the Pharoah

Ali: the Pharoah wants a five-hundred foot tall tomb just for him? he has some opinion of himself.

Agent: Well he is a god on Earth.

Ali: Every petty prince thinks they are a god, that's nothing special. Considering how they all behave while down here one might think the gods would make their club a little more exclusive. But that still doesn't explain why he wants it.

Agent: Well he will be put there in splendour with great treasures amidst him. As long as he is undisturbed on Earth he will be undisturbed in the Afterlife.

Ali: You guys sure don't make this easy. I have to build a giant tomb that will last forever filled with treasure that no one will touch for ever. Thousands of starving people for generations and no one touches the treasure? Aren't there easier ways of living forever?

Agent: Well the contract is worth plenty of money

Ali: And what about labor costs? Where in the world does Pharoah think I am going to get the ten thousand or more slaves needed to finish the project?

Agent: He is Pharoah, the morning and the evening star.

Ali: Yeah,yeah. But you gotta know, Pharoahs credit rating is rather low right now after The Incident.

Agent: What do you mean?

Ali: You know what I mean. A nomad dressed in shaggy clothes waving a shepherds staff. Name of "Moz" something. Anyway he comes around and says he is an emisary from the Hebrew's God and that their God is a bit miffed at Pharoah keeping his children slaves. I'd be a bit miffed if Pharoah was keeping my kids slaves too. So thereupon all the Hebrews decide they've had enough of being slaves and run off. When Pharoah goes after them, his whole army drowns. Uncanny to say the least. I can see why Pharoah wants to make provisions for the next world. The question is why do I want to. I don't care if Pharoah lives forever in the after life and I think he's been a bit to long in this life. Unless he is going to pay me real well for this project, AND provide the slaves I really don't see the point. I am not doing this job just for Pharoah's sake; I've got my own living to make.

Agent: Very well. See you. By the way I here they have a job offering for the fortifications of Jerhico.

Ali: Didn't take it. Don't know why, but there's something fishy about the deal.
