Why Do These Russians Hate History So Much?

I totally agree with this Gawker commenter's response to a group of Russians climbing the Great Pyramid and taking photos:

The pictures are beautiful, but for heaven's sake, the rules about climbing those pyramids are there for a reason. It's like people who insist on touching things in a museum - if everyone thinks they're the only one who's doing it, then pretty soon your lovely sarcophagus or painting will be covered in grime and gradually disintegrating. Where's a good old Pharaoh's Curse when you need one? If scrawny little Tutankhamun can do it, a badass like Khufu could probably cause them to spontaneously combust.
