What I usually do is on a thing like this is look at what happened in the past on this date, April 15, which will now be one of the memorable dates in history…

Interesting April 15 is the universal day of culture and world Art day


We all know France is known for two things, if anything: their culture and art

Isn’t there a card in the game of life that shows this church burning down?


No, but there is a rather large cathedral that crumbles right at the end of I Pet Goat II.

Such a terrible moment in France's history, but also very symbolic of the country in 2019.

Breaking: "Crown of thorns", saved from fire!


In 1238, Baldwin II, the Latin Emperor of Constantinople, anxious to obtain support for his tottering empire, offered the crown of thorns to Louis IX, King of France. It was then in the hands of the Venetians as security for a heavy loan (13,134 gold pieces), but it was redeemed and conveyed to Paris where Louis IX built the Sainte-Chapelle (completed 1248) to receive it. The relic stayed there until the French Revolution, when, after finding a home for a while in the Bibliothèque Nationale, the Concordat of 1801 restored it to the Church, and it was deposited in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame.[3]

Full story

Funny how old wooden relics survive this?


Health alert: Dont YT "Crown of thorns" !

How would the public free expression of a personal opinion/belief "risk the case" ?

Sounds like authoritarian BS excuses to me

Amazing how a private individual's opinion can't "risk the case" here in the States isn't it? If either side has a reason to believe the juror pool is tainted, why not simply move to another venue? I fail to understand how the public hearing someone's personal opinion could be considered detrimental

Anyhow I am not looking to pick a fight, I am disappointed to see such a long standing symbol falling

Symbolic of the torching of Christendom and Western Civilization. Kind of Apocalyptic in a way.

Many will mourn her passing; many more will secretly celebrate.


There are many celebrating on twitter. I will leave you to guess who.

Godawful, terrible news
Very sad images from ongoing coverage

!No, a Canada-air or a "helicopter with buckets" won't help !
Macron using it as rallying cry for national unity stinks
he's being an opportunist, not good
...

Thinking on: after the Eiffel Tour and the Arc de Triomphe
Notre Dame de Paris is the 3rd iconic 'monument' in Fance
Not just in Paris

Big blockbusters need a bit of the french touch ...

Massively paid for; full spread photo shoots in glossy mags
sultry hotties in sultry hot places, where it rains sweat
clad in sultry hotty clothés ...

Tv ad's too : Skondäl - the aftershave for real Orangemen
Instructions,sadly only in sophisticated frenchie :


Whatever

As soon as you get a glimpse of any one of the iconics
you know where you are, and have conjured up other images

you know exactly which country it is....
"Ahhh, France, croissant, camembert... "

This is why NDDP is classified by Unesco
It is culturally significant, to humanity

'''taan sa mere, Notre Dame va finir en cendres, sérieux quoi "
....

Which national monument's destruction merits such shock 'n' awe ?

The Houses of Parliament, and it's big clock... um ?
The Leaning Tower of Pisa (ooops, it's just keeled over !)
The Sphynx (we're watching here as, parts, just .. fritter away ..)

Anyone ?[

I don't want to be the last one to say "We turned the gas off, right, didn't we ?'

It doesn't look all that much the same though, just more suggestive if anything. So I didn't bother looking again.

2013 – A wave of bombings across Iraq kills at least 75 people.
2014 – In the worst massacre of the South Sudanese Civil War, at least 200 civilians were gunned down after seeking refuge in houses of worship as well as hospitals.
2019 – A massive fire engulfs the Notre-Dame de Paris; the extent of the damage is not yet clear.

Seems like a common theme

I will wait for the facts but you are probably on to something

Spooky coincidence nonetheless. The universe mocks us.

That there is another significant part of history. Even if the relics themselves are not the genuine items and I know people are divided on that, they are still significant for their place in history right alongside the artworks.

Renovations also expose old wiring old gas pipes old insulation.
I think they are saying so far it appears to be an accident at the work site.


Seems to have started in the roof, so I hope you are right, but not a lot of wiring/gas lines etc in the roof.

When doing renovation work, workmen can string up all kinds of temporary infrastructure to facilitate work.
