comment « Fool » en français ?
Débile is a lot more pejorative than fool, more so than imbécile that was also proposed in this thread. It's downright insulting, even, to the level of cretin or moron in English.

comment How to identify a condition (for use of conditionnel présent)?
The example sentence uses (present, present) and not (present, future). You don't discuss this case.

comment Is the position of space and time precisions in this sentence correct?
@Aerovistae You have to say ici if you're in the park and refering to the people around you. On the other hand, if you were talking about it after leaving the park, you'd have to use or là-bas (“Je me demande pourquoi il y avait tant de gens qui parlaient français là-bas tout à l'heure*”). At least in France, I don't know if it's different in Québec. Oh, and why là-bas and not ? I'd have to think about it.

@Aerovistae I don't know what happened, I restored the missing fragment. Être là is an idiom, meaning to be present. There can be ambiguity as to whether something is far away to be instead of ici, but I can't think of a case where would be more casual and ici more formal.
