UnchartedX and Bright Insight Egypt Tour 2020!: https://unchartedx.com/tour a quick correction:
I know I spelled 'Gobekli' incorrectly in the bit where i was searching for it on the wiki article about the Sphinx Erosion theory. It doesn't matter as it doesn't appear even with the correct spelling - that capture was done in a hurry at the end of my production and I was attempting to replicate a search I had made earlier! here is a screenshot showing that not even 'gob' appears on that article: http://www.pukajay.com/gallery/zp-cor...
