"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

The Montparnasse train station in Paris has a complete computer failure (those used for switching the track points): they were in the process of upgrading the software.
Another had already happened during the week-end July 29th/August 1st, smack in the vacation departures.

No trains to Brittany, and as I know the SNCF (state train company) getting information on site is near impossible. Lots of people marooned.

Le Monde published this cartoon:

– As soon as the trains go again, you'll be evicted!
– That's OK, then!…

One could contrast that with Japan

Sex doesn't sell: Last erotic cinema in Paris to close its doors
The Local (France)

... Due to competition from the internet "on which 10-year-old kids can see any porn movie," the number of customers has "gone down," said Laroche. ...


Technology marches on. :notsure:

↑ Ah, after the eroticism museum in Paris (I think I blathered about that).

Coming up: Corsica. The two "départements" have been fused and elections held for the new local assembly. The "nationalists" (roughly "Corsica to the Corsicans but let's keep our advantages"; they are already experts at milking the EU) won in a landslide… :mrgreen:

You know what would straighten this all out?

Putting a Corsican in charge of France. :P

The French medias are full of it: Johnny Hallyday is dead. Dunno if he's at least vaguely known ultra-pond, so:

National funeral for the popular idol ( :mrgreen: ):

Media consensus and "intellectuals'" opinion: you don't like him because you're a grumpy old fart, or worse.
