The Terminal Guy

Remember the movie The Terminal starring Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta Jones?
Well it turns out that it’s inspired by a true story!
And well, the guy is still living in the airport!

Merhan Karimi Nasseri, a man without a country, has been trapped by his lack of papers in Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris, France, since 26 August 1988.

As of the summer of 2004, Nasseri is still living in the airport. He does not lack for money — Dreamworks paid him a rumored $250,000 for the rights to his story.

I simply can’t believe it. It’s incredibly amazing!
But it’s true!
