The design would have to be carefully effected as steel expands and distorts when subjected to heat.

Everything does, even wood. Although factor of ten difference between with grain or across grain sources say. You need to design for the material.

Water is a bit wierd though.

There's talk of using Titanium for the roof struts.

Cost would be the burden.

Yes, that's quite normal, but working with that becomes second nature. Fortunately, lengthwise expansion is minimal. As I mentioned in an earlier post, large sections of some timbers will withstand fire better than steel, especially when aged. I don't know the characteristics of oak.

Leave it as it is, good tourist attraction and a lot less of that mumbo jumbo that went on inside. Priests can still walk around inside wearing their pretty frocks if they want to.

Why are you so abusive of other people's faith.

Some people don't believe in freedom of religion - they want freedom from religion.

I would seriously hope that the teams that fixed York Minster and Windsor Castle will be asked for their suggestions and valued for their experience!
Brexit or not, this transcends politics by a very significant margin.

Those Sapeur-Pompiers (sp) boys and girls have big brass ones and deserve serious recognition for a truly remarkable achievement.
Hope they get what’s due!

Whilst I appreciate that 'it's what they are trained to do', I would like to think that there might be a 'bonus' scheme for particularly tricky jobs - or would that risk firefighters overstretching themselves?

The yellow vests are back at it this weekend with something new to protest.
The big tax deductible(?) donations by the rich to an edifice and the government help.

It's not often I am with racedo, but I agree with him on this one. I'm an atheist, but find the silly comments of my fellow atheists very unpleasant. I dont believe in God or organised religion, but I think talking about sky fairies and pretty frocks and the like is just plain bad manners.

But we are allowed bad manners on here, as long as we are not rude to a particular person. Contentious comments are what causes some posters to jump up and down in righteous indignation. Keeps the thread interesting. Rely on me.

Await your comments on Islam and Judaism.

Oh racedo,
I have no comments directed towards any specific religion. I question all religions but accept that there are many people with a firm belief, good luck to them all but surely I am allowed to comment on them.
The fact that I subscribe to no religion does allow me to be impassive to them all, unlike the intolerance by many religious people to faiths other than their own.

As this is the current defacto religion thread....


Where is the outrage about the actions in Sri Lanka? In the immediate aftermath of the New Zealand shooting, the comments were fast and furious. Not so much now.

The murder of anyone for their religious beliefs is horrible.
