Re: Schadenfreude

Speaking Swiss for over 30 years now, I've always felt the Swiss use Schadenfreude more as "just deserts". Let's take the example of Slammer's blind man and say that the man had done something beforehand to annoy Slammer. Watching the blind man walk into the signpost afterwards would have been a perfect example of Schadenfreude.
