Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?

Re: Notre Dame cathedral on fire

I couldn't believe what I was seeing when I caught this on the TV last night. Very sad news. I had the good fortune of visiting Paris in 2008 with my lovely wife and I saw it.

15 to 30 minutes from being completely destroyed. Those firefighters deserve a monument.

The French ability to rebuild after such events is truly legendary. Saw it few months ago first hand.
In 2017 several Caribbean islands got direct hit from extemely powerful hurricanes and got devastated.
Last fall, an year after the hurricanes I visited two of those islands - one island a UK territory and another - French territory. The former looked like hurricane has never happened. The latter looked like it happened yesterday.

I don't like that at all. I understand the sentiment, people don't wanna hear at this time it will take much longer, but it's still cheap and populistic. This is a very delicate and precise job that just cannot be rushed. I say fuck the Olympics and take all the time you need to make it perfect.

Re: Notre Dame cathedral on fire

Of course it will take longer than 5 years, and that's fine. Macron can make bold promises, because he won't be reelected for a second term.

I don't understand what the 2024 Olympics have to do with this. Paris will always be full of tourists, with or without the Notre Dame cathedral open to visit.

France is saved. Donald Trump will help. He has built many towers in the world.

Re: Notre Dame cathedral on fire

Those kind of renovation usually take forever because there's hardly enough money or urgence to do it.

If you really want to do something and you have the money behind, you can do wonders in 5 years.

And France has enough experts and companies.

Germanic efficiency vs Romanic one. Except for building airports needs to be said.
