Life was a lot funner when I was a kid; before it was wrong to eat lead paint chips and get choked in Chinese play-pens. I personally bashed my head regularly whilst not wearing a helmet - falling out of trees landing on my head. We played with hammers - I bashed my head with a hammer once. I remember falling off my bike when I was 7, bashing my head on a rock. I woke up throwing up with blood running down my eyes. God that was a great time to be alive.
I may have sustained some brain damage. You kids with your safety this and refrigerated meat that don’t know what you are missing.

Memphis, founded around 3,100 BC, is the legendary city of Menes, the King who united Upper and Lower Egypt. Early on, Memphis was more likely a fortress from which Menes controlled the land and water routes between Upper Egypt and the Delta. By the Third Dynasty, Saqqara had become a sizable city. It fell successively to Nubia, Assyria, Persia, and Macedonia under Alexander the Great. Its importance as a religious centre was undermined by the rise of Christianity and then of Islam. It was abandoned after the Muslim conquest of Egypt in 640 AD. Its ruins include the great temple of Ptah, royal palaces, and a colossal statue of Rameses II. Nearby are the pyramids of Saqqara.
