Save The History

Built in 447 BC, the Parthenon sits on the Acropolis in the center of Athens Greece. Unfortunately it is in danger due to decay of the Acropolis. Repairs are being attempted, all the best of luck in that endeavor. It would be a tragedy to lose such a great piece of history.

An Ancient Greek man walks into a tailor and holds up a torn tunic. TAYLOR: "Euripides?" MAN: "Eumenides?"

This, really, isn't news! They've been 'working' on it since (at least) the '70s. I used to have a good B&W photo of it before all the restoration hubbub but I've not been able to find the negative for the past 20 years now!

Anyhow, I've still got this fixer-upper (seen in the photo above) for sale or rent! Majestic 360° view of the city. Slight roof damage may let in a bit of rain. Apply here with references and $2,000 deposit.

One day, the Greeks will be grateful that they lost their marbles to lord Elgin.

Nothing lasts forever, I don't care who built it. If it hasn't been renovated since it fell into disrepair, it's because no one wants to spend their own dollars (or Euros, or Melbanian Blancs, w/e) doing it, because no one has a use for it anymore.

So, if it must be fixed, I declare it Italy's financial responsibility (arbitrarily, of course. I just like declaring things).
