we should probably just burn the whole thing to the ground, finish it off. there's no telling how many children have been raped by the likes of the pope and the clintons in that place. it's not a holy place anymore.

use your head man. do you think there's even a slight chance that dropping tons of water from a plane might level an old and weakened structure?

****ty ideas are ****ty ideas, regardless of who thinks them up. it's just embarrassing our president tweeted this idiocy for all to see.

The Germans proved that it's not easy to hit Notre Dame from the air.

do you actually think that dropping water from a plane would have knocked the whole structure of the Notre Dame cathedral down? Please tell me you believe this

“A Canadair projects about six tonnes of water at high speed to the ground: the danger is significant of hurting one or more people around the building - which is why Canadair interventions are so infrequent in urban and peri-urban areas.

“Such an intervention could also significantly destroy the little remaining structure of the cathedral."

It wasn't the fire they were worried about. Gothic cathedrals are mostly made of stone and thus, resilient against the threat of burning.

It was the heat they were concerned about. The firefighters concentrated on keeping the stonework cool, especially the major load bearing foundations and butresses. If the stonework failed, the entire structure could have collapsed and the entire cathedral lost.


Dropping a massive amount of water from the air into the fire could/would have overloaded the stone vaulted ceilings that are covering the interior under the wooden roof that was burning. Some of the vaults had already failed and crashed into the interior.

if i dropped a 100 pound rock on your head from 100 feet up, your head would pop like a mellon hit by that crazy dudes big ass wooden hammer.

if i dropped 1,000,000 pounds of water on your head from 100 feet, youd get wet.

People thing that if you drop large amounts of water from above it sticks together like a large water droplet and just crushes everything below.

It'll take a few years to restore the structure and repair the damage, but not decades, using modern construction.


800 million USD has already been pledged by donors (in less than k 12 hours) to restore it. Which is interesting... A) where were these donations when they needed to repair and renovate it? B) Where is this money when anything else is in need of charity?

Makes me wonder whether the Notre Dame is a symbol of charity or a monument to vanity.

Either way, never look a gift horse in the mouth. At least there are people who care enough to see it restored, regardless of their motives.

Several structures, likely common homes and businesses of regular Parisians caught fire and burned as collateral damage... anyone chip in to help those people yet?
Yeah but now we have OHS laws and unions - that thing will take forever.

You know where the money is coming from when it ends up with big signs on the outside walls "The Herschel and Ruth Annex" "Moishe Goldberg Hall" etc
