Danger de mort

"Glass roof; access forbidden. Danger of death." This glass roof is just behind the weird fountain near the Centre Pompidou with all the big ugly colorful sculptures in it. It's not often you see a skull used to denote, like, actual death. 99% of skulls you see these days are on t-shirts or other fashionable items. Two hundred years ago, 99% of the skulls you saw meant either poison or pirates. I don’t know why I find that so interesting.
