@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

Breaking now, the Notre Dame Cathedral is burning to the ground.

The moment the spire fell.

As a historian and a lover of great historical art, this is utterly heartbreaking.

certain people are already making claims ranging everywhere from "anti-Christian attack" to "false flag by President Macron."

 

So yeah. That'll be a fun discourse.

Theres been no reports of injuries.

Reportedly some firefighters ran in to try and save some of the artifacts and artworks. I hope some of that survives.

This is a tragic loss for western civilization.

These things happen mate, but it is sad that this has happened, hopefully they can rebuild some of it.

We must rebuild. Every last detail. I don't care if it takes a whole century. Every Western country needs to make sure this happens.

There was repair/maintenance/restoration work happening in the cathedral; current speculations say that's where the fire began. Not that it makes it better, but a tragic error is better than a deliberate attack (and the inevitable mis-aimed hatred that would result).

I actually made this comment before. I hope when they rebuild (and they will.) they source stone and wood from around the world. I hope that this cathedral can become more than just a symbol of christianity, but a symbol of what we all can accomplish when we work together.

Just rebuild it.

I'm sure the original designs are kicking around somewhere. No, don't change it, but... Little signs up around the structure. "Granite in this wall came from the canadian rockies. XXXXX kilometers away." "Granite in this wall came from Sierra Madre Del Sur, xxxxx kilometers away", "The wooden cross beams supporting the roof came from the guatemalan rainforest, xxxxx kilometers away.", "Marble for this floor was mined in japan, XXXXX kilometers away.".
