Re: A Helpful Guide to Recognizing Swiss emotive states*

With my father in law there is a difference between the enraged face, and "enraged because he played the wrong card in Jasse".

Actually, that's quite a funny face. He goes absolutely off his nut at himself. The only thing better is when we are playing as a family and he and my wife are in a team. If they lose to MiL and me there will be absolute carnage, while my MiL and I sit back and laugh.

Nah, that's just because you live near the brothel in Birmensdorf.
