Just like in the Disney cartoon. ^_^
That is extremely sad to see, and on the week of Easter no less. I hope they are able to get at least some of the relics housed in the cathedral out. Luckily, the bronze statues of the apostles were already out of the building so at least some of the historical pieces are safe. What a tragedy.
Edit: It would appear that many of the relics including the Crown of Thorns and Piece of the True Cross were indeed saved according to RT. That is a relief to hear.
Never underestimate human stupidity, anyway from the news reports so far it seems likely the structure is safe https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-europe-47942176
There really wasn't a whole lot more they could have done. The structure itself appeared mostly to be held up or at least reinforced by scaffolding which severely limits their options. Add its age, location, and the materials it was built from and this was a nightmare for any firefighter to deal with. Honestly I'm surprised they saved as much as they did. And to be honest, plans for stuff like this tend to fall through rather quickly. But the fact that nobody died and the relics were saved shows that they did have some plan in place.
Thats pretty much always the plan to be honest. I've been called to numerous construction sites and renovations that catch fire. They are a mess to try to put out. Especially very old buildings. And 90% of the time they're caused by human error. Human stupidity is hard to plan for.
Can someone take this child's twitter away during a crisis, although watching twitter roast him is pretty fun
Sounds like a solid solution to me... Also they should've raked the leaves outside the Cathedral. ^_^
This greatly symbolizes the fall of Christian Europe. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was some Muslim arsonist, and the construction accident is just a cover story.
I will do you one better, it was a Christian hoping to frame Muslims for this to encourage violence
See how easy it is?
There have been no incidents of Christians framing Muslims for a crime, only the other way around.
The Christians are just that good at false flag attacks.
It’s much easier to cover up an arson than it is to cover up any of the ridiculous bullshit you’re throwing out to discredit conspiracy theories. The governments of Western Europe have an extensive record of covering up for their Muslim immigrants.
Sarcasm and satire are the weapons of choice for those without actual arguments to make. Countless conspiracy theories have proven true over the years. For instance, the US government used to hire journalists to spread government propaganda through mainstream media outlets. Any sound mind would call that the delusions of a madman, right? Nope, look up Operation Mockingbird. Yet now we somehow believe that the government is no longer doing the same, and anyone who suggests such a thing would again be relegated to madman status.
As for your facetious diatribe about the West European governments having no motive to cover for Islamic criminals, that is demonstrably false. For instance, for decades, British police refused to open investigations into Muslim grooming gangs because they were afraid of appearing racist.
https://www.rotherham.gov.uk/download/downloads/id/1407/independent_inquiry_cse_in_rotherham.pdf. See pg. 91 and onward, points 11.5, 11.6, 11.9, 11.11, 11.12, etc.
Of course, I had to go all the way to a primary source because none of the mainstream outlets are reporting the fear of racism aspect. This wasn’t an isolated case. You can look up “Muslim grooming gangs”, and you’d find at least half a dozen examples in cities across Britain, and the police in the majority of those cities refused to investigate until they were exposed. The West’s governments have an inordinately strong goal of promoting diversity and tolerance no matter the costs. If a Muslim burned down a thousand-year old cathedral, consider the impression that would leave on the ordinary French citizen. It would make them less likely to support importing more of them. That is an unacceptable cost to Western governments, and so they would keep it under covers if indeed the perpetrator was a Muslim. I am not saying it must be a Muslim arsonist who burned down the Notre Dame of course, but it is very much a possibility.
Please tell me you're not serious with this whole thing... someone please tell me he's not serious about this.
Victim is the current resident "alt-right" dude. He's fairly consistent, so for the purposes of this site he's serious.
I know, I know, he sort of sucks, but he's the best we got right now for that position unless Zass wants to step it up a notch.
I'm too busy trying to write an edgy adventure storygame. It will be most likely the lowest rated CYOA on this site and I just lost an entire page because of an error at the editor.
Therefore, I shall refrain from giving in to temptation and post on the forums unnecessarily until I finish it. Starting now.
Oh, you misunderstand, it's not that I can't believe your statement, because I've seen these kinds of statements a lot on the internet, unfortunately, I've even had the misfortune of arguing with people like you a few times on the internet. I'm more amazed, or shocked as you say that you're so adamant in your belief about this, that is all.
“We can't possibly entertain every crackpot with crackpot ideas. People with little credibility or those pushing fringe ideas need to provide more compelling evidence to get the attention of others.”
I provided lots of compelling evidence. If you find the evidence to be insufficiently compelling, then point out what is uncompelling.
You’re only shocked because you naïvely believe everything your government says to be true despite all the evidence to the contrary.
Yeah, just out of curiosity, what government do you even assume "I'm naively believing"?
An argument would actually consist of me actually, you know arguing with him, I was actually just curious and asking him a question.
Mizal, I notice you doing this hit-and-run type of replying quite often when Steve was still around as well, and it never adds anything to the conversation.
im out of the loop, what actually happened to steve?
Nothing, he's in law school, so he's pretty busy.
Apologies, I shouldn’t have used the term “your government”. I don’t know and don’t care to know what government you live under, though I suspect that you’re from a European or North American country or perhaps a white expat living in Thailand. In any case, what I should have said is that you naïvely believe the word of governments in so-called “liberal democracies”, especially when the narratives they paint is in accordance with your preconceived worldview. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, you continue to believe everything they tell you about any particular event and dismiss evidence to the contrary as “conspiracy theories”. There are sadly too many people like that.
Man, I didn't know you could burn down a stone building! Props to the builder, that's the kind of shit you could brag about, like "I set the swimming pool on fire!" or "I burned this milkshake!". Except maybe don't mention that you burned down the only home in France for the terminally hideous. That's not cool. It's difficult for them to find work and shelter outside the Incel community.
I'm sure they'll restore it. ^_^
I read the first part and was just sorta like, “Excuse me, what the actual fuck Mayana”, but then I realized you were joking. Almost thought this site was a bunch of racists up until I realized you were joking...
You think we were joking?
I hope you were joking, or there is already no hope for this site. Also PRAISE ENDMASTER
I've learned some things, citizens of this site you have my solemn thanks.
This site doesn't have citizens. It has subjects.
Ruled over by the admins.
