July 2nd, 2009 - Paris
Well, Rodin may have turned out to be a hack, but at least in the back of the museum gardens there is a relaxation space where the children can play with the statues. I should have known, though. He lived in the 20th century.
How awesome do you have to be to get the entirety of France to follow you on a campaign to take over the world? It's like throwing a party and having the whole university/high school show up. But better.
In the event of a zombie apocalypse an arms museum would be the first place I would break into. Or a blacksmithy. What time period would have had the optimal zombie fighting gear?
"In the name of Jesus, I must kill you." Always wanted to say that to someone.
Wow. I didn't ever get to the second floor of D'Orsay. Stupid Rodin.
For the most part people are and have always been idiots. That's why great people have so much merit. By the same token, the bar for greatness is set pretty low.
