    The Great Pyramid is “huge”, the Empire State Building is “huge”, but relatively speaking a London Bus is quite small.

    There's "huge" and there's "really huge". Your comment made me look up some volumes...

    Surprisingly, the pyramid is about 2.5 times the volume of the building; 92E6 ft^3 vs 37E6.

    If the interior of the pyramid is really composed of blocks of stone*, that represents one helluva lot of rock chipping.

    ---

    * An engineer (as opposed to archaeologist) has pointed out that even rough forming of the supposed interior blocks should have produced a pile of swarf roughly as big of the pyramid itself, yet no evidence of such waste has ever been found on the plateau or in the Nile. He believes the interior is composed of rock spoil, perhaps from the blocks that formed the surface of the monument. I don't buy his theory but the missing spoil pile is a genuine issue.
