too mad to post the text right now
I don't understand Greece anymore. Ugh, this is ridiculous.
Greece has potential to turn into Mad Max like stuff.
THIS IS MADNESS
This is a crisis.
Oh no, statues of naked muscled men wrestling are missing!
(Yeah, I know it's bad, but I just had to bring some levity to the situation....)
Did the robbers speak French and German?
Would it still be a robbery if they did?
Yeah, no words.
Except that this is what budget cuts gets you. It was two people--against one guard. ONE guard at Olympia.
They're definitely not getting anything back from the British Museum now.
Saunty: They had so many more guards a few years ago. I remember, because they had this insane policy of banning pictures with people in them. You could snap all the shots you want, but if someone was posing in them they'd get mad. They yelled at me because some random was in one of my shots!
That's too bad.
Greece, you are a %^+ing train wreck
The same thing happened to me at the National Gallery in Berlin. What's up with that?
I recall during the troubles in Egypt that citizens took it upon themselves to protect museums from looters. That is pride in your history and heritage, shame on those who steal or destroy the thngs that make their country great.
lol the entire country is bad because of what two people did.
Ok, now that I'm actually calm enough to read the article, it looks like the museum that was hit wasn't the main Olympia museum (the one with the awesome Praxiteles) but a smaller annex with stuff relating to the Olympic Games. It's still an outrage, but at least the best works weren't stolen. Thank goodness for small favors.
I was actually commenting on their overall situation, this just being the latest piece of bad news.
TAKE THAT CAPTAIN LOGIC
Yes, this would never happen anywhere else ...
