:: Fix It Yourself ::

This is so great. A underground group of architects, historians, and others known as The Untergunther broke into the Pantheon in Paris for over a year at night to repair its broken antique clock. They setup a workshop and carefully tore it apart and reassembled it ending it's neglect and then were brought to trial once they came forward... Such a great story, and the group, whose mission is to 'restore France's cultural heritage', do a lot more than just repair broken clocks.
