RE: The only thing the French do right

My dog gets mad sometimes too.


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

RE: The only thing the French do right

i wasnt intent on starting any sort of 'whos architecture is better' war, mr snips, maybe an attempt at discussion, but im not the type to start one of these silly internet wars of my own personal interest.

i dont need the excitement that much.

but to get back to the topic. are french and german buildings not lots alike until almost modern construction? i am thinking 19th century was whenever the traditional models gave way to more personalized(localized) styling?

ive never studied architecture, i do know a bit about the objects and the classic models of cathedrals, but not so much about private residences.

i only know anything of measure about the interiors of venetian palaces of the reniassance. the rest is pretty much medieval/gothic church forms. ill check it all out, any books you can recommend, mr nao?

The French are masters at preserving old things and running museums.

RE: The only thing the French do right

Do you know how much better goes into one croissant?
Do you know the fat content of foi gras? The word fat is in its name,lol. It's all about moderation and educated eating which we lack. Wait till you see this generations Parisian’s with just as many McD's and Burger Kings as any metropolitan city.
