Nutter with petrol cans on another continent arrested in a church versus an act of god/accident/tragic turn of events.

I tend to agree with your assessment, nothing much to do with one another whatsoever.

That was my thinking.

How come there not insured six ways from Sunday?

Religion may very well be a business, but i dont think they follow the same set of rules.

Either way, you would imagine other scenarios where insurance purposes are concerned must have reared its head before.

If they were not insured one has to bloody well wonder why not???!!!

is it called taxpayer revenue? it may be that the French state settles

all liabilities maybe as much as servicing of state debt.

Well if it is called taxpayer revenue i dont imagine those fellows in the beloved Yellow Vests or there like will be overly chuffed by the prospect of Joe Public having to shell out for the better part of a new Cathedral nor foot the bill.

I never thought it looked like Jesus either. I was thinking more along the lines of “why didn’t we see this obvious claim coming” ?

I’m not big on images of Jesus. But I found it humorous .

He is depicted with a flaming heart!

(groan, bad pun I know).

The different charging rules (not to mention the the weird plugs used that are probably [OpethPA you can shoot me down for this supposition] that IIRC are DC) and predate computer control (prior to over charging), might be the blame.

But this is only preliminary. And I think that fire suppression will be mandatory on all future upgrades to any building.

Only because it makes sense.

500,000 Euros i think, about £433,297.

Harly a kick in the arse well done Ubisoft.


Nicely done, and they are even, ""Allegedly"" removing the majority DRM from all their PC games.

Hat and a Halloween tae Ubisoft! LoL


Methinks I'm missing something in translation here. Never have been a gamer so don't know what DRM is and what the heck does that last line mean? Hat and a Halloween? I have no clue what that means.

'hat and a halloween tae ubisoft' my interpretation of this, and andy may well intervene and correct me is that of a compliment. may be a scootish saying and even though i'm closer to hadrians wall than the rest of the f uk 'ers, it still
gives me the lolz when the native boys get going with the speel!

It's easy done colloquialisms and all that jazz.

Digital Rights Management or "DRM" is a rather intrusive protection measure implemented to some games and generally requiring online activation/authorization which slows down your PC, perceivably so sometimes.

It gets cracked/removed which generally means that illegal variations of the cracked software run faster.

The "Hat and a Halloween" reference is a Scottish saying which generally amounts to well done in somewhat of a sarcastic manner.

Hey, what is a hundred million between friends??

Looks like a bunch of people are willing to throw a bunch of money at the problem.

I predict a glass spire with haylon or some such in it.

Still, when being rebuilt, there will a fire crew standing by!

Burn me once, shame on me...

Now that you mention it. It will be neat to see some of the artist conceptions from the contractors bidding on the renovation.

I wonder if Trump organization will bid ?

Argument? I'm not putting one forward you muppet. You assumed "communism" or something then proceeded to argue against it, it was hilarious to watch. Do continue.

"Unluckily for you, I just happened to be someone that does know a little bit about your incredibly stupid complaint and I've called you out on it." Mr. Big Brain? Haha! Listen to yourself.

If the roles were reversed? It's a forum... not a game of chess. Your arrogance oozes over the keyboard, the funny thing is you are probably a small man hence your use of the word midget. Projecting? I just read one of your latest comments "there are buildings more important than others and it's the same for people" or something like that, what kind of bollocks is that? Can you explain why Stephen Hawking is dead when there are cretins like yourself, who believe they are more superior than others, still alive?

Wouldn't be surprised to find you were a member of the KKK.

No, this dude is asking why there can be such compassion for a building but not people, I'm not dictating how it should be spent merely asking a question... are we really that expendable? If so then don't be "bitching" when you're next.

not sure if this has been posted.

The Chief architect said new fire equipment and monitoring had been set up in 2010. There was no way this was caused by fault wiring

www.sott.net... e-fire-wasnt-caused-by-electrical-short-circuit


So all the stories like this one saying it was caused by wiring are probably misdirects (www.cbsnews.com... )

Furthermore, there was a computer glitch which led the firemen to the wrong location initially losing valuable time

www.telegraph.co.uk...


it's looking more and more suspicious. And high tech.

Would you expect him to say anything else?

He is covering his arse.

Were you even arsed to read the article?

As anyone who has set fires knows, huge oak beams like that don't go up completely within minutes like it initially did.

"I don't understand this at all. The fire's spread is extremely curious. With really old oak like that, it's super-hard, so you'd need a lot of smaller wood to first get the fire hot enough for the oak beams to burn."

further
"
At all times, there are always two men on standby in the Cathedral, day and night, to go investigate anything the moment an alarm goes off, then if necessary to call the fire emergency services.
"

so it makes no sense to me how it could be electrical, unless there was some kind of purposeful misdirection and /or purposeful sabotage of those systems.

He says this.

And then we have this.



Firefighters lost valuable time in reaching the blaze at Notre Dame after a computer glitch sent investigators to the wrong part of the cathedral, according to French reports. An initial fire alarm sounded at 6.20pm local time but after failing to find a blaze, security services at the landmark dubbed it a false alarm,


New fire equipment and monitoring had been installed in 2010. However it didn't work correctly as The Telegraph report states.

Are you to blind to see that he is covering his arse ?
