Don't worry, John Cleese is the hero and I know better now.Otto: Don't call me stupid.
Wendy: Why on earth not?
Otto: Oh, you English are *so* superior, aren't you? Well, would you like to know what you'd be without us, the good ol' U.S. of A. to protect you? I'll tell you. The smallest fucking province in the Russian Empire, that's what! So don't call me stupid, lady. Just thank me.
Wendy: Well, *thank* you for popping in and protecting us.
Otto: If it wasn't for us, you'd all be speaking *German!* Singing "Deutschland, Deutschland über alles..."
Nice little town, but a downer for rough-sleepers!... Im an Oxford guy
... fortunately I'm a celt, hence my capacity for booze and philosophy!
Why did you sleep outdoor ? Did you have no choice or did you want to experiment it, like for instance Orwell did ( cf Down and out in Paris and London) ? Weren't you frightened by what could happen to you in the dark ?Nice little town, but a downer for rough-sleepers!
Why did you sleep outdoor ?
Sure !It's cheap and teaches you something.
I actually live at five minutes from Paris ;) I don't know how it was in 1987, but nowadays the Gare du Nord is a disreputable place in a disreputable quarter. A lot of thugs meet here, there are fights between bands and traffics, you could not sleep there again without being bothered. Last year (or maybe in 2007), police chased several bands within the Gare, I saw images on tv, they were very impressive.
