    Actually, I had a clue considering Perfection is rarely serious, but well, since there was an opportunity to fight... :mischief:

    But whatever, don't base on me your stereotypes of the French people. I'm just an idiot. I've also thought this thread could be a fun opportunity to show some other faces of Paris. Personally I love the point of view on the Seine Heights in Saint-Cloud when coming from the A13 motorway. Unfortunately, I haven't found a picture on google.

    Here's a picture of Vincennes, which was also mentionned in Lankou's first post. Vincennes is among the 5 most densely populated municipalities in Europe (together with Paris and 3 other Paris suburbs). Here's a picture of its streetlife with its medieval castle in the background:

    What are you talking about? If movies and TV have taught me anything, it is that from every spot in Paris, in any direction, you see the Eiffel Tower.

    I can locate the bolded ones. Without dots, I'm sure they will be slightly off.

    I know very well where Versailles is, but I've never consider locating it on a map, though.

    Funny, seeing as how whoever chose the name was, at that time, English!

    Dear God, what is up with Wisconsin having the same names of places in the state? Five times or more in a few cases.

    Bear in mind that the glorious metropolis of Versailles, MO is properly pronounced VERSAILS.

    I believe Massachusetts is the nation's leader in towns named Athol.

    We have the most Athols!

    Of course! The only one I would have a problem with is Charleroi, I've never heard of it, but nearly all of the rest I could place on a blank map of France within 30 seconds.

    Of course! Why wouldn't you? As long as you don't invent a quote, then there's no issue.

    Actually, there are two neighbouring municipalities being called Saint-Cloud and La-Celle-Saint-Cloud. Both have 30,000 inhabitants making a total of 60,000 people for an area 8 times smaller than that place in Wisconsin. ;) :D
