Yeah, if you're badass enough to take it.

Snake Plissken has never cared for money, but the government does. Now
they want Snake to pull one last escape, escape from Paris with all
the gold in a converted rocket powered garbage scow. Is even Snake
Plissken man enough to pull this one off, can Snake Plissken defeat
the enigmatic leader of the Paris commune - Pepe.

> what then would be the value of knowing the location of paris?

Snake Plissken knows the location of Paris. He knows how to get in.
But does he know how to get out?

sample dialogue:

message routing command: You're qualified by a psychotic namespace
Plissken, you hear me!!

Snake: I swear when I get out of here I will delete your whole
descendant axis!! You bastards have angled your last bracket.


French XML Resistance Leader (shooting bazooka down into pipes): Tag
you're it Plissken, ha, is that funny. hah Plissken? Tag?!?

Snake(from behind): End tag, you malformed s.o.b
