This was the wine and cheese party they were waiting for all day. They knew the event was in this building. In their minds it was a heaven. Everything …

I have an idea let’s try tipping a pyramid like object. Try it if you want to engage in some challenging fun. In fact tipping a pyramid like object is almost an impossible task. Perhaps for a detached pyramid, shifting from one location to another is a more natural result. Yes, thoughts can shift as well; …
