WORLD Watch: Top Story
News Bytes 05/7/2021 20 Comments

Today in Top Story: For the past two years, crews worked on keeping the Notre Dame Cathedral upright. Now they can begin renovation.

It’s been two years since an accidental fire tore through Paris’ most famous cathedral. Officials said earlier this month that the burned-out monument could remain under construction for another 15 or 20 years. However, they now pledge that Notre Dame will at least be open for prayer and a “return to worship” in time for Paris' Olympic Games in 2024.

Whoa that spire crashing down was crazy! But that is cool they are working hard to rebuild it, and it is not going to collapse anymore. Oh and that clip about the nine babies at the beginning, that is not natural, in case you didn't know. They probably gave her some drugs and stuff to make her have nine babies.

2nd Comment

I'm glad they are able to start rennovating now.


Wow, that must have been scary to watch when it was burning. I'm really glad they're rebuilding it.

@Twins S

Butterfly knives are soooooooooooooooooooo much better. Seriously. Yu guys are missin' out.


(I can't watch the video but I like reading the comments to try and get what happened)


Well, just to make a record like that, and to be cool. Like you look in reality, nine babies is just not natural. I mean twins is pretty common, triplets not so much, but nine? Because there are some drugs that women can take to increase their chance on having a baby, so one suggestion would be taking a bunch of that, and then you would have a lot. Or another thing they do is actually AI the woman. (AI = Artificial Insemination. They put the semen in her it doesn't happen naturally.)

@ Nadia
