Quotes: Ancient Egypt

"What is it about ancient Egyptian artifacts in fiction that give you magical powers? Think about it. Black Adam got his powers from another mystical scarab, All the mummies pop up because of necklaces and jewels, oh and let's not forget the artifacts that makes you want to play card games for the rest of your life! And to get all this crap you had to pass insurmountable odds in Indiana Jones-esque fashion and one person would die along the way. It seems to me that Ancient Egypt was a freakin' death trap! Screw Archeology! You ever think there was a reason this crap was buried?!"
Linkara, Atop the Fourth Wall

"According to Hollywood, every last pebble in the Nile Valley is a gateway to some ancient evil. So remember, if it comes from a tomb, it leads to doom."
