Here's another "your whole life was a lie" story. And, this time literally, your life was a lie and mine too. Because recently I came to know about this fact of the great pyramids of Giza and I was shocked. I mean, how could we miss something like that.

We have seen these pyramids many times on TV, laptop and mobile but never noticed this. I guess you get the idea that I'm talking about the number of sides of the great pyramids of Giza. Well, we all know that every pyramid has 4 sides, excluding the base, and we would expect the same from the great pyramids of Giza too.

But, my friend you're wrong. The Great Pyramids of Giza has more than 4 sides and how many they are? Let's find out.
