It's amazing. 16% of the time they get a kill, they don't work together; most of the time they give it a little run and then go "Fuck it, rather have a lay down. Someone else can get it. Let me know when it's dinner time."

That lady in the Zoo.....well maybe it has to be a generation thing but she may not be that representative at all.

The only Germans I know well have been living in the UK for years, and they certainly have a sense of humour. Perhaps it's something they were issued upon entry, but I don't think so.
