that’s the life of the eiffel tower so far. you can verify the sources, most of them came from wikipedia which i take for truth if there are sources. who knows what else is in store for the statue of liberty’s younger brother. maybe i’ll get married there in 2020. maybe it’ll be relocated to brussels in 2024. maybe in 2027 it’ll be the site of wrestlemania. maybe i’ll get married there in 2025. maybe it’ll make a cameo in rush hour 4. i’ve never been there myself. we’ll see what the world has in store for this great, expensive monument.
