La dame de fer

The iron woman.... a popular nickname for the 1889 iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris that has become both a global icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. Yeah!! now you know it.. I am talking about the beautiful landmark in the city of love..Eiffel Tower..The tower stands 324 m (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building.

 Thomas Edison visited the tower. He signed the guestbook with the following message— To M Eiffel the Engineer the brave builder of so gigantic and original specimen of modern Engineering from one who has the greatest respect and admiration for all Engineers including the Great Engineer the Bon Dieu, Thomas Edison.

Really it is a marvel of architectures...with a lot of history.. the cosmic rays were found here by  Father Theodor Wulf  who measured radiant energy at the top and bottom of the tower, discovering at the top more than was expected. France installed a radio transmitter located in the tower jammed german radio communications during the lead-up to the First Battle of the Marne.During the German occupation of Paris in 1940, the lift cables were cut by the French so that Adolf Hitler would have to climb the steps to the summit. . When visiting Paris, Hitler chose to stay on the ground. It was said that Hitler conquered France, but did not conquer the Eiffel Tower. 

There is a restaurant which was was re-assembled from 11,000 pieces that crossed the Atlantic in a 40-foot (12 m) cargo container and a major place of attraction for witness the love escapades.

As a landmark representing Paris, it is also a famous destination for lovers to propose under  the tower. Apart frm that the picturesque Paris has its own beauty. There are lots of  hotels in Paris city centre, where you can stay with your loved one and spend your holidays in romance... so Why are you being late... :P..Book right now... and don't forget to visit the Place de la Bastille which is a district of great historical significance, not only for Paris, but for France, too. Because of its symbolic value, the square has often been a site of political demonstrations and Champs-Élysées  is a seventeenth century garden-promenade-turned-avenue connecting the Concorde and Arc de Triomphe. It is one of the many tourist attractions and a major shopping street of Paris.

Tournaments in Vegas Mafia Wars

I should not say that I didn't like vegas.. but problems are that it is too heavy and too messy with banks needing upgrading... and too much loss of money in fights....

there were few questions about tournaments...
I just like to help you with few...

you have to complete lower level of tournament before you reach heavy weight.. till then it is

calculation is if it needs 10 mafia

then ur combat score is...
top 10 weapons+ top 10 armors + top 10 vehicles ( till now no animals) + {unknownfactor x (att+ def skills)}

what i felt is bets are based on the 501 mafia complete strength and need not be based on amount of mafia u carry... like if he has top 10 weapons better than yours.. u might lose...iresspective of bets... one guy with an odd of 1:21 won the tournament while mine was 1:2

top weapons are chosen by combined attack and defense...

like if a weapon has 40 att and 40 def = 80 is better than weapons with 55 att and 20 def.. ..So make ur weapons wisely...

if you have any other question ..I will try to answer them... but I am new to it too :)



Happy bucks
