Only 20% off doesn't qualify for a "****in' Sale" in my book, if you're going to start swearing, it's got to be like 50-75% off

Tip - if you can't see the top of the Ütliberg from Zürich then you're not going to see Zürich from the top of the Ütliberg. Nice fail though

Did something similar with my Dad's first visit to Switzerland - took him up Rigi for the day, cloud from about 100m below the peak and going up ... with strong winds.
My excuse is that we couldn't see the clouds from Zurich ...

Kim Jong Un, manipulated results

In November, satirical website The Onion named him 2012's Sexiest Man Alive,



The diminuitive leader swept the board in the TIME magazine readers' poll, raking in a whopping 5.6 million votes. The poll is not Time magazine's official Person of the Year announcement, which is revealed on December 19. The North Korean leader might will be slightly disappointed to learn that his landslide victory was apparently due to the poll being fixed by users of internet forum 4chan. As has been the case in previous years, users of the cult internet forum decided to manipulate the results of the vote, and urged readers to vote for Kim in their thousands (and millions).

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/north-korea-leader-kim-jong-un-wins-time-person-of-the-year-readers--poll-115843154.html

He went to school in Bern for 7 years, attending the private English-language “International School” in Gümligen near Bern under the name “Chol-pak” or “Pak-chol” from 1993 until 1998. Later it was reported that Kim Jong-un attended the public school “Liebefeld Steinhölzli” in Köniz near Bern under the name “Pak-un” or “Un-pak” from 1998 until 2000 as the son of an employee of the Embassy of North Korea.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Jong-un

Unintentional funny(ish) in Today's Torygraph:

BBC management was 'completely incapable of dealing with Savile row'


They obviously have problems buying tailored suits
