Big Thumb Statue in Paris

The giant thumb statue in Paris is called "Le Pouce de Cesar" and is 12 meters high and 4 meters wide. You can find it in the area of Paris called La Defense near the Grande Arche. And what a thumb it is!

It's pretty good. It's to the left of the CNIT.

And for 22 years, I wasn't aware of this thumb.

What intrigued me the most (not having noticed the date) was that a "guest" could post.

Everyone was a 'guest' in 1996 . . . that was years before registration.

True. Also, on just about every site, people who have deleted their account are listed as "guest" if their posts remain visible.

1. In the twenty or so years I have been on this site, this is the first time I’m reading about the giant thumb.

2. How on earth did someone find a thread from 1996 with no replies? Was it listed somewhere as a “related thread”?

In any event, I am happy to have seen it now.

She certainly gets a "Thumbs up" from me.
