Just a picture gallery I quickly set up as a replacement for my Photobucket account.
Have fun! (yes, most pictures are funny ones, or try to be)
Also, there is a couple of tiny ads below, whitelist me maybe? ;)

Balzac - Behind every great fortune lies a crime

balzac_behind_every_great_fortune_lies_a_crime.png Voltaire - The best way to become boringThumbnailsChurchill report's very length

Behind every great fortune is/lies a crime.

NB: the original quote is actually "The secret of great fortunes without apparent cause is a crime forgotten, for it was properly done", but the shortcut version, although inaccurate, is a bit more catchy ;)

In French, the original version is: "Le secret des grandes fortunes sans cause apparente est un crime oublié, parce qu'il a été proprement fait" ; and I guess the short version would be like "Derrière chaque grande fortune se cache un crime". It comes from a dialog in the novel "Le Père Goriot".
