Fire/EMS/ERs/disasters, etc.

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!

Because nobody knows more about fighting historic cathedral fires than dear leader?

The story about it on CBS news said it took 200 years to complete the construction.

Before And After Photos of Notre Dame Cathedral Show Fire’s Devastation
Rebuilding the iconic cathedral will take a lot of work.


During the fire I thought everything was burning, not "just" the roof and spire.
It's amazing that so much is still standing. I thought the sidewalls were going to collapse.

First the cathedral, now these abominations:
Notre Dame confirms famed leprechaun mascot will be a female for first time ever

... Since it first debuted as Notre Dame’s official mascot in 1965, the leprechaun has been exclusively male and mostly white. That will change this year, however, as Notre Dame announced Tuesday that, for the first time ever, a female will serve as one of the school’s three official mascots for the 2019-20 school year.

Lynnette Wukie, a film, television and theatre major who hails from Elyria, Ohio, and Midview High School (Go Middies!), has been selected to break the gender barrier at the South Bend school as she enters her junior year. “Who says the Fighting Irish can’t fight like a girl?” Wukie stated in an application video that ultimately led to her selection.

In addition to Wukie, rising junior Samuel Jackson and rising sophomore Conal Fagan will serve as the other two official leprechaun mascots at various sporting events at the school, including football and men’s and women’s basketball among others.

Wukie and Jackson will also become the second and third African-Americans to play the role of leprechaun, joining Mike Brown, who broke the mascot color barrier at the school in 1999. Additionally, Fagan, a native of Northern Ireland, last season became the first native Irishman to play the part of mascot....
Never mind that "Notre Dame" literally means "Our Mother".

They're cheerleaders/maybe gymnasts in green suits and knicks ferpetesake. Who cares what race/gender they are? I was afraid they were going to make the female and the black guy wear a fake orange beard. That would have been weird. And hell, I doubt all the football team is really "Irish" either. They might be offended, but as it turns out if you told them their team is portrayed by a little fairy, you'd be correct.
