  • I kinda figured the Vatican would have a nicer chimney.

    I expected some kind of ornate masonry architectural feature.  Something that says, "Hey, world, we've got a new ****************ing pope here."

     

    But it's not.  It's this:

    asdf

     

    It's a hunk of steel pipe sticking through the middle of the roof, with a metal plate welded on top.  It has some steel guy wires so that it doesn't blow over and is right next to the electric lines.  WTF?

    If it was ornate you'd be bitching about that too.  "Why do you need rubies on a chimney?"

      Meh.  There's lots of happy medium between "hunk of sewer pipe" and "jewel encrusted." 


      Bricks, for example.  Or stones.  Maybe some nice granite.

    It shows the humility and frugalness that the Vatican has always been known for.

      A flame thrower bursting out with a pillar of fire would be more dramatic/biblical.

    I was disappointed the first time I saw it too.
