Side note ::: there's a parking lot about 1500 feet away from the Sphinx. On the opposite of the parking lot.... was a KFC. Don't know if it's still there today though.
I never believed the 20 year theory - some guy on the tour bus came up with a rebuttal to the tour guide....
2.3 million blocks in the Great Pyramid
divide by 20 years =
115000 blocks placed per year
divide by 12 months in a year =
9580 blocks placed per month
divide by ~30 days a month =
~319 blocks placed per day
divide by 24 hours in a day =
~13 blocks placed every hour
which basically means the Egyptians had to place one block (2.5 to 15 tons each) every 5 minutes.
Plus make sure they're straight without mortar, plus carve out all the little pathways and compartments inside, plus build two other pyramids simultaneously, plus match everything to Orion's belt constellation...
