Uh, they did. But right angles pre-dated the pyramids by at least several decades.
The circle is even older.

Right angles (and every other angle) have been around forever, it's just that nobody named them. Same as gravity, space, oxygen, grass, ocean, sky, etc. etc.

See above. There has been at least two circles from the day man was 'born', and he saw them every day, the sun and the moon

Not to mention the circle that "man" was born out of.

They do. And IIRC the Egyptians knew 3,4,5 but not the general rule about the square of the hypotenuse etc. - which is what Pythagoras discovered. Oh hang on...In another source...

A god-awful insult of a movie anyway, of an arrogant, misanthropic teenager trying to find his way out of upper middle class suburban boredom.
The guy was stupid, blowing around in the wind in a totally brainless emotional psuedo-quest, making idiotic decisions at every juncture. The screenplay was abominably constructed, too, with no character development and scene after scene of random useless filler.
I cared so little for the character in the movie that it's hard to even feel any compassion for the joker who pulled the pathetic stunt in real life.
