“Amelie has no boyfriend. She’s tried once or twice, but the results were a let down. Instead, she cultivates a taste for small pleasures: dipping her hand into sacks of grain, cracking creme brulee with a teaspoon, and skipping stones at St. Martin’s canal.”
—Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Le Fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain

Hugo makes a big deal of all the human waste going to… well, waste in the sewers but I’m a little puzzled as to how it gets there. People just throwing chamber pots in the gutters? I have the vague recollection (more of a supposition I guess) that there were water closets in…
Wow no wonder there was a cholera epidemic.
Yeah, you still get some older streets in lots of cities that slope inwards towards the middle on either side, instead of outwards towards gutters by the curbside—it’s because they used to have a channel running down the middle that was basically an open sewer drain. When classic authors use the word “boue” (mud/mire), especially in the metaphorical sense, they’re usually not talking about a messy but harmless mixture of dirt and water, they’re talking about the mud of the streets—a charming combination of raw sewage, horse manure, plain old dirt, runoff water, and (in winter) snow or slush that can block off the drain and turn entire streets into ponds of semi-liquid shit. YEAH. (Although IIRC the cholera epidemics were more because the sewers themselves emptied straight into the drinking-water supply.)

Wow, this is really late sorry guys. I don’t have time to read everyone’s posts today because final papers are a thing, so I’m sorry if I repeat something someone else has already said. Mostly going to type out some of my first reactions, and then if I have time go back and do a more detailed post.
So I’m already laughing about the image of sailing corvettes (mostly thanks to Bobcatmoran’s post).
I like this crew already, at least from their description.
And that’s about all I have to say for now…yeah.
