Archaeologists Consider Opening A Gigantic Black Sarcophagus and Twitter Goes Berserk

You probably haven't heard that earlier this month a giant black sarcophagus was discovered in Egypt by a group of archaeologists so here is a quick recap for you.

Out in Sidi Gaber district of Alexandria, a team of archaeologists was in the middle of a dig when they found a rather large, black granite sarcophagus. This is the longest sarcophagus that has been found in the area measuring  At 2.65 meters (8.7 feet).  It was unusual found indeed, also made more bizarre by the fact that it has remained entirely intact through all this time. The seal between the lid and the body of the sarcophagus has not been broken, meaning that whatever is in there has been there since the Ptolemaic period (323 BCE to 30 BCE).

Naturally curious some of the scientists want to open it to see what is laying inside. The internet, full of people who saw movies like the Mummy thinks this may not be the best idea in the world, some took to Twitter to express their feelings.

Most refrences were of course to the Mummy movies:


Another movie that was mentioned is Indiana Jones:

Some recalled this is just like the beginning of an entire genre of films:

Some accepted their fate:


While others were happy with the toughest huamnity will come to an end:

One already thought about the perfect solution:

In all fairness, the chances that something deadly will come out of the sarcophagus is very low, but just in case does anyone have The Rock's number?
