Huge respect for this guy. I can't imagine the amount of courage this guy had standing between an angry mob and armed police officers.

There are many religious figures in history who tried to facilitate peace despite threat to their lives.

Police have alleged the clan has some 500 members interwoven by kinship or marriage, and that the family group used young girls to commit burglaries across Europe.

The bonds of an ionic crime gang would be stronger.

Women burglars, truly we live in progressive times.

On a serious note, I hope European cooperation against this sort of 'business' is as deep as it can get.

Familial crime gangs are the worst kind because familial bonds are the strongest.

Trump clearly doing a tour of major religious centres, since he's going to the heartlands of Islam, Judaism, Catholicism and Eurofederalism.

The Vatican, too.

Mussolini didn't die for this.

Lourdes, Hautes-Pyrénées, France

Lourdes, Hautes-Pyrénées, France

I went there a couple of years ago with my family. There was a huge line of people waiting to touch this certain wall. We didn't know what it was all about (not religious) but decided we were going to touch the wall too. My dad was the only one who ignored the wall and didn't touch it. Literally one minute after we're done a pigeon poops on my father's head. 7/10 it was a fun day.

I remember all the shops selling virgin-shaped water bottles. Oh, and somewhere they charged me like 5€ for a coffee (I guess they made it with miracle water). And the loudspeakers around the church constantly shushing the people.

Nice place, but weird experience.

Yes it's a religious place but it's actually really depressing too. A large amount of disabled people travel to Lourdes in hopes of being cured by going to this place. You will always see a ton of trip organisers at local airports such as Pau which take a group of old or crippled people to this statue to pray. All this because 100 years ago someone claimed to see an apparition.

Follow the link to her wiki page and it says:

"Bernadette learned very little French, … She could read and write very little due to her frequent illness. She spoke the language of Occitan, which was spoken by the local population of the Pyrenees region at that time (and to a lesser degree today)."

The shortest international bridge in the world. Between Portugal and Spain.

This would be the perfect setting for those prisioner exchange scenes in spy movies.

Slap that image on the next Euro banknote.

Relevant Tom Scott video

It's worth noting that all of those bridges are actually made up, so as not to feature some countries and not others, but instead exude a general European architectural atmosphere... ... And then the Netherlands just had to go and build them all anyway.

Edit:

Thanks /u/OwlsParliament

We can exchange German and British tourists. <3

France is in the same range as Portugal (60-70) but has a darker color. This makes no sense.

Sometimes I forgot how lucky I am to live in a tolerant country like the Netherlands, but then these kind charts give me a good reminder.

The colour gradient itself is vague and badly designed.

Where is /sub/dataisbeautiful when you need them?

Title says EU, image says Europe. Both wrong, although Europe is the least wrong.

Tbh I could see that exactly same sign used in anti-EU protests.

I live in the Netherlands i call it the Netherlands.

Looks like we need trigger warnings for hijabs lest we want some people get a keyboard stroke.
