According to it's official website, the Great Pyramid Monument – a highly ambitious project that intends to commemorate the lives of the future dead on a per brick basis – now has 1,079 reservations. The open name reserve list, which includes a brick buyer's nationality, indicates global demand exists (46 countries are represented so far) to be one of the structure's future building blocks. The foreign interest is impressive considering that the pyramid will most likely be built in a small town in Eastern Germany (Dessau is the favorite). Primary motivations to pay 700 euros for a spot include being part of a potential historical landmark, a sense of universal egalitarian community and customization options (on color, content and epitaph).
