    You know Statler, after watching the last seven hundred episodes of One Piece, I think I've come to a conclusion.
    Statler: No you haven't.

    Dictator of Sudan Omar al-Bashir has stepped down due to a military coup.

    Same feelings as Mugabe: ha, fuck this guy, but also military coup very not good.

    Thing is that it was one of his generals, with blood as red with blood as his. Too soon to tell if this is a good thing.

    A major fire has broken out at Notre Dame Cathedral, possibly in connection with on-going renovations to the 850 year old landmark.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    Judging from photos its a MASSIVE fire too. This is not going to end well for the place.

    The photos from the Notre Dame fire are absolutely horrific and heartbreaking. It's one of those things where even if you have connection to France or Paris, or the history etc. you can still feel the psychicly.

    I imagine the masonry will be fine ultimately but everything else, all the artifacts and artwork is toast.

    This is an absolute tragedy.

    Similar places have to check their fire safety asap.

    Apparently they're just letting it burn. It's too tall for any directed hose to aim at the fire. If they generally aim hoses up more stuff would just collapse and the stone would crumble. They won't let firefighters in because of the huge danger to them. Human lives are worth more than a historic building.

    Apparently cathedrals are also just impossible to stop fire from spreading by nature. They are tall and airy, but not really ventilated. Gases can rise and cause of fire.

    So yeah. Stone structure should be okay at the end of it, but the stained glass and 850 year old wood is a lost cause. The artwork is safe apparently, I'm not sure why or how.

    Hope no one was hurt. The decision to let it burn seems sound.

    A building is only a building after all.

    Yeesh, according to some aerial drone photographs pretty much the entire interior appears to be gutted.

    A lot of the stained glass was more recent than you'd think and apparently some of the internal decorations were out of the cathedral for the repair work but god almighty this is absolutely devastating from tons of perspectives.

    Holy sh- I remember visiting Paris and looking up at the Notre Dame, being completely overwhelmed by the sheer greatness of it that no picture can recreate.

    It seems they managed to save the relics.

    I'm in utter shock. How the fuck did this fire start?

    It would have surprised me if none of the stained glass or even other parts had survived two world wars.

    Thank god, the fire has stopped. And several artifacts have managed to survive:
