It's a type of pyramid. You should visit the one near St Louis. It's pretty impressive. You can walk to the top and get a sense for how immense it is. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cahokia

Ok, but there's a significant difference between dirt mound pyramids and real pyramids build as a structured... structure... one requires great intelligence and planning the other requires the intelligence of an ant and is not wondrous.

funny the ant thing just came up because i always say that asians are like ants because they stay busy and work, but I don't think the rumors about intelligence are true. I went to a university with chinese and exactly zero of them ever struck me as smart. also, i know PhDs on the ground in asia and they're IQ research clocks asian average IQ around 80-85, right there with negros. Also, the supposed intelligent asians come from areas that have known european blood or the european-esc Anui/Jomon genes.

I can believe that for places like Cambodia and Myanmar. As far as I can tell the Japanese and most likely the Chinese are above 102 or so. If that's not the case I'll be surprised.
