Holy shit! Check the news guys. This is seriously bad.
Is roughly what I said to my fiancee, considering what we put back up again after the war in germany...They will rebuild it. We Europeans are pretty good in rebuilding historical buildings succumbed to flames.
Why would you want information or reactions from anyone else than the Glorious Leader? His opinion and thoughts are True and Good, and whatever anyone else says can only be a reflection of His greatness, or false, and therefore useless.The first thing you see when you mouseover the Fox News YouTube link on the fire is Trump. Why?
Stuff like this has been done already, of course.Man, this is all wonderful news. But at least we have videos, pictures, etc. of everything. In the past if something burned down that history was just gone.
I also read yesterday that the copper statues that were on the roof were removed a few days before the fire due to the renovations and were unaffected.What has been confirmed to have survived the fire:
• The Crown of Thorns, which some believe was placed on the head of Jesus and which the cathedral calls its "most precious and most venerated relic," was rescued from the fire, according to Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.
• Hidalgo confirmed the Tunic of Saint Louis and other "major" works were also saved.
• The facade and twin bell towers, the tallest structures in Paris until the completion of the Eiffel Tower in the late 19th century, survived the blaze.
• The Rose windows are a trio of immense round stained-glass windows over the cathedral's three main portals that date back to the 13th century. The Archbishop of Paris said all three have been saved, reports CNN affiliate BFM TV.
• The original Great Organ, one of the world's most famous musical instruments, dates back to medieval times. The Archbishop of Paris confirmed the organ is safe, reports CNN affiliate BFM TV.
One of the Rose Windows today:
It's reached masturbatory levels on my feeds, people are desperate to dunk on it. Donation whataboutism (specially coming from people that are not usually into charitable giving) is annoying at best.Why waste time comparing and trying to diminish it? I'm really happy they saved that window.
I was under the impression that Notre Dame was owned by France.They aren't diminishing the event, they are shining a light on the fact that there were over a billion dollars donated for the restoration. And since this is the catholic church it's like donating money to one of the Koch brothers because his house burned down.
