No wonder no one takes this country seriously anymore. ](*,)

And to think a Colorado Springs news channel thought it was pertinent to devout 2.5 minutes to this idiot. Well spent money, guys... #-o

Few thoughts...
No wonder they've been paving the road!
Could make skiing the Y a bit more interesting.
Intersteller donuts?
Could make for more parking at the incline if the Railroad Shuts down.
Re write of America the Beautiful? Purple Pyramids Majesty?
Is a Pyramid class 3? Smooth sided class 5? Aid?
How will El Paso county tax our alien friends?
Will our unearthy friends let us reverse engineer thier fuel technology?
Will the V ships refuel here?
Will they be able to fill up my X-Wing?
Will my property values fall? Rise?
Will Woodland Park's slogan change from City Above the Coulds to City below the Intersteller Gas Station? or to F-it we needed the money.
Will the pyramid help Harvey Carter finally get his ski resort due to new weather paterns?


God, I must be bored...

We laugh at this goofball now, but I pray he doesn't try to take it to a court....if he got lucky and ended up with a crackpot for a judge he might get the OK to do something this absurd.
Seems like the times that I need a mountain the most are the times that I can not get to them.

If he somehow could build the pyrmid out of material taken from the mountain, and added 480 feet, would that then make Pikes Peak the highest 14er in the US? :) :) :) :)
And would everybody who's climbed it have to climb it again? :) :) :) :)

Nope, that would still be Mt. Hubbard, AK. LOL

i wonder if this same satire played out when they talked about building a gift shop on top of Pikes... at least this is more creative...

Shouldn’t he be talking to the folks in Crestone?
