Normal service shall soon be resumed

Anything happen last week? Can’t say I noticed. I’m gifted with the ability to forget about work as soon as I’m not there, and the world also when I go away. So have yourselves an Open Thread then, one decorated with Tignes in the French Alps, where I’ve been. It’s typical of the French to plonk a modernist monstrosity in that glorious landscape. Just look at it! It’s well above the treeline, so it’s like living on a Moon colony.

    It is Pete, but to be fair they have made a much better job of preserving Paris than the Brits have of preserving London.

  2. yes the french are doing great….lmao

    PARIS (Reuters) – Rioters set fire to a bank and ransacked stores on Paris’s Champs Elysees avenue on Saturday, in a new flare-up of violence as France’s yellow vest protests against President Emmanuel Macron and his pro-business reforms entered a fourth month.

  3. Anarcist anti-semite rioters and looters in action in Paris. No condemnation from Trump.

    Just imagine how he would react if it was blacks or browns. But he’s not a racist, no siree.

  4. Phantom

    Be sure that he does. Fox-Limbaa-Jones will be keeping him up to date, but from a purely anti-Macron perspective. The anti-semitism and anarchism will be ignored in the interests of promoting the anti-EU agenda.

  5. 16th century architecture was modern architecture in the 16th century your logic is lost on me

  6. Do you guys do anything but moan. You’re like a bunch of old women.

    I learnt to snowboard on that slope behind the buildings. I’ve boarded it in the French Alps many times. Great memories.

  7. I praise what is good and criticize what is bad

    Those buildings are ugly, and are IMO a scar upon the land

  8. I learnt to snowboard on that slope behind the buildings.

    “Scraped half the snow off the piste because it’s steep coming off the glacier, then got in everyone’s way while falling over. Ended up coming down on my arse.”

    EP –

    16th Century architecture was contemporary at the time, and usually human in scale while employing local materials.

    I described Tignes as “modernist” (an architectural term), not “modern”.

  9. WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Former President Barack Obama ignited a firestorm of controversy on Wednesday by demanding to see President Donald Trump’s elementary-school diploma.

    Speaking to reporters in Washington, Obama called on Trump to prove “once and for all” that he had completed a K-through-five program.

    “While the U.S. Constitution does not require the President to have graduated from fifth grade, it would still be nice to know that he had done so,” Obama said.

    By insisting on the release of Trump’s diploma, Obama joined a growing movement of so-called schoolers, who contend that Trump never attended school.

  10. The rocky movie series was based on a real boxer, Chuck Wepner of Bayonne New Jersey

    He’s an interesting guy, and they are erecting a statute to him in his hometown
