Always gotta be some know-it-alls who ruin it. Congrats guys, you're super bright.

Do us a favour... when someone posts a satire site....just keep quiet and see anyone falls for it.

Is it not interesting that less than 24h after the fire, a whole host of European billionaires were lining up to give out hundreds of millions of EUR for the reconstruction effort? It seems as if EUR ~500M (CAD $750M) was pledged by these billionaires within the first 24h... Before a single government body or NGO could put up any cash.

Nonsense. Electricity was described in detail by Pliny the Elder in his 1st century AD treatise entitled: "Non insertare digitum in socketum muro"

Oh stop... electricity in a usable fashion did not exist in notre dame 12 th century. That’s the point. Take a seat. Typical rfd’er who wants the last response which doesn’t add to the point.
If the glove don't fit you must acquit! #WINNING

If electricity back then didn't exist, you do you explain ancient cave paintings that clearly demonstrate evidence of a modern electrical system. For example:


This painting clearly demonstrates a modern hydro-electric dam, complete with water wheels for electrical generation.

This painting clearly demonstrates workers building an electrical power grid that somehow involves cats.
