    The internet tells me they saved the crown of thorns and other relics and artwork. Hopefully google is right in this case

    Incredible. Great day of loss, but this pic makes it clear that the spirit of the building will survive. A full destruction would’ve been so defeating.

    Sounds like all things considered we got pretty lucky. Thought for sure the cathedral would be burnt to the ground for the most part. Give them firemen a damn raise.

    Thank you to the @PompiersParis policemen and the municipal agents who have made this evening a tremendous human chain to save the works of #NotreDame. The Crown of thorns, the tunic of Saint Louis and several other major works are now in a safe place.

    He’s like 1 of 10 Dems that are easily better and more broadly appealing/actually intelligent than the next closest R.

    That whole “omg do Dems have direction or a leader” bit cracked me up 2 years ago and obviously more so now.

    I think the House of Wisdom in Baghdad that the mongols sacked ranks hire than the Notre Dame (keep in mind though that ND will be rebuild fully and you will hardly see the difference, thats the major difference between Europe and the US, the US mindset would be to build something bigger, better, grander than what was there whilst the European mindset is to make it like it was without any noticeable difference).

    Honestly think that the WTC are culturally wholly different but not that huge a difference as well

    First off, the Notre Dame is not completely destroyed. It may take a generation to rebuild, but France and the Catholic church will do so (they'll squabble over who will pay for it, of course).
    Second, I'm not suggesting any of those listed are more important than the Great Library or the Notre Dame, rather that we humans (not just westerners) have lost (through accident, natural disaster, neglect, war, etc) myriad priceless culturally significant buildings since antiquity, it's impossible to rank them.
    More important culturally than various buildings lost in China or shit, what ISIS did to Palmyra 3 years ago? They're all irreplaceable.

    Either no, or nice humble brag about being a millionaire!

    He has 91 billion.

    200 million is 0.2198 percent of his total wealth.

    Even saying a "few k" is 3k, that means you'd have 1,365k.

    Kinda puts it all into perspective.
