    Anyway... The first half of the story is true
    ... except it's more like 15K Euros, not 4K

    While searching for something completely different on Wackop... ehem... Wikipedia ( ), I stumbled upon an article about supposedly haunted locations around the world. The part of the article about some German examples made me go :

    See for yourself (it's the very first paragraph) :

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haunted_locations#Germany

    Doesn't it remind you of the apparitions and ghosts from Thief ?

    And another location, Leap Castle in Ireland, is supposed to be haunted by an "elemental" : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_Castle

    I reckon' it's not the type of "elemental" as in Thief, but the name is still pretty unusual to use for a "standard ghost".

    A can of dog food went bad in the fridge last week. Anyway, my girlfriend opens the fridge, and I SHIT YOU NOT says "What's that smell? Smells like old meat." She is not familiar w/the line from Thief either.

    It's an emergency evacuation plan. It was sent to "Idioteka" site because of the way it is drawn - the only meaning of these countless arrows can be "in case of emergency please make a good panic".

    I know it too well.
    It's a strange cathedral because first it was never finished, it's like a gothic cathedral cut in half.
    And second, there is a massive palace attached to it. It was for the religious who lived and worked here. Now it's the town hall and various museums.

    I visited almost every room in it, I even went to the cathedral's roof and towers once when I was a kid (it's been closed for years due to restorations, and the danger it represented). Only places closed to public are unknown to me, like the sacristy and such, but during my studies and numerous visits I gathered some plans so I can imagine these "hidden" rooms.

    I made thousands of photos of it, and I go back visiting it almost each month. It is the "Builder's cathedral" in my fms

    Here is a plan of the palace I found back on the net :

    The cathedral is in the top left, and the photo you posted was taken on top of the tower in the bottom right.

    Er... Wow?
    This cathedral could be extremely interesting and beautiful. *writes in diary on more place to visit in France*

    Has anyone got some good pictures of the Kölner Dom? That's my favourite and most loved Gothic building in the world, but because of its setting, and the way the buildings are crammed around it, I never was able to take normal pictures of it.

    Wow, DrK, you are a lucky guy.

    I intend to go to France in an year or two. I want to see this place and if I come, I'll write you a PM to arrange a meeting with you.

    I want to watch Tour de France live.

    How much does that one cost?




    On a barely on-topic note, a small laser weapon for tiny harbingers of disease, and it can distinguish from friend or foe, in an article that is both cool and eye-rolling:
    http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/03/16...rss_topstories

    No mention of its effects on other species in its path, and we won't have to attend the Seminary to learn how it makes the distinction.
