The Rosetta stoke.

THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS WERE NO JOKE. They were a great civilization centuries ahead of their time in every conceivable facet. Their complex writing system, hieroglyphics, was considered virtually undecipherable for thousands of years. Their secrets were almost lost to the ages. Then, in 1799 near the town of Rosetta, a French explorer found a 2,000-year-old stone slab that had extensive hieroglyphic inscriptions and a perfect Greek translation beneath it. That one rock unlocked the secret of the hieroglyphics. To this day, 'Rosetta Stone' means anything that single-handedly bridges a leap in understanding. Skating holds many secrets. Those on the outside will never know. Perhaps the future will hold a Rosetta Stoke, to clue-in the world to the answers we've found. We doubt it. Until then, our mystery remains ...
