“Don’t make any noise. Don’t shout. Don’t protest. Don’t go to the toilet very often. It makes them mad, and when they’re mad, they hit out. Avoid fights. If they’re tired, they will let you kill each other; if they’re in the mood for a fracas, they will beat you up. Take care in the showers. They like to play pranks in the showers. Shower quickly and always keep your back protected. But above all, don’t talk much. And never say where you were born. That last one is very important.”
