This Is Why I'm Watering The Lawn

I am the Nile!

At 4145 miles from my furthest extremity to the Mediterranean Sea, I outdo the Amazon to become the world's longest river. The piranhas hate me.

Beneath me lies an underground river with six times my volume. I kept this remarkably quiet for several thousand years. In fact, I'm full of mystery; my source wasn't discovered until 1862. I'm also full of water. And crocodiles. And nuclear pharaoh machines that run on light and can see through time.

Which Extremity of the World Are You?
From the towering colossi at Rum and Monkey.
