You mean using the EU satellites for GLONASS? Unlikely. However, they have intentionally crippled Galileo.
Bingo! They don't want super accurate NATO cruise missiles coming in.
Not to worry, the knight that says ni, will fix it.
Yup, as I posted above, there are places in Egypt where buildings were left unfinished and it is clear that they simply dragged the stones over sand. Basically they buried the building site in sand and later dug it out again, while dressing the stone from the top down. It is easy to do if you have enough people and time on your hands and they had those aplenty.
Anyone that actually lived in the middle east knows that sand is everywhere. They simply stacked the blocks while building up a sand pile around it, then eventually dug the sand away again, while dressing the stone from the top down to the bottom. There are actually some unfinished spots in Egypt where the tools of the trade and the gravel heaps surrounding the still partially dressed stone remained. There is no mystery about it in reality - only on TV.

Dark matter is the foam noodles and other packaging material that the universe was transported in. It now lies in a skip at the back.

If anyone who wants to go sailing read this - Sit in the back of the yacht, don't go inside, do put on a hat and shirt, do use sunscreen. Always look horizontally, try not to look down and NEVER look up. After a few days, you'll be used to it, unless you don't heed the previous, get seasick and consequently never get used to it. My guess is that space is like being inside the cramped cabin of a yacht, while suspended upside down.
It looks like your post must have been stuck in a 10 year time warp and is actually from 2004.
Military IFF also does civilian ATC. No surprise there at all actually.
