I personally think we should wait until the 3rd is over before we start the 4th. You never know, there may be lessons to be learned.

Have genetic inheritage which means I'll be on here until about 100 as well. But that was based on recent DNA research - who knows how long I'll be lurking here until banned ?

Well, if the genetics on the male sides of my heritage are a determining factor then you guys should be savouring every post I make. I was already ahead of the game before I could post anything for sale on EF.

Yes, but your genetics are only regulated by tin foil.

I am still trying to figure out how someone with a bicycle, who calls themselves bicycle, and obviously cycles their bicycle, dislikes Switzerland..

Well, I have tried to change them by thinking but that, as you may remember, went drastically wrong.

And the foil isn't tin.

Re: Switzerland: The most BORING place. WARNING: Long complaining rant...

Getting used to Swiss mentality is like having a plaster cast. The itch starts and you know you can't scratch it, so you need to find a mind over matter way to deal with it.

With time you can concentrate on the itch and tell yourself to get over it. If you concentrate on a way to scratch the itch your up schitt creek without a paddle.

The Swiss are here to stay, it's how you deal with your itch that determines if your going to enjoy or torture yourself during your time your here.

Agree, it takes careful effort, thinking and planning to make a life here. That could span over a few years. Once you've done it, regardless of your circumstances, then your hard work can be rewarded with comparative paradise.

I think it takes the same to make a life anywhere. Anyone who leaves "home" for a different culture will inevitably notice that things are different. Confusing different with wrong is a big mistake.

The best place in the world is only so if you allow yourself to believe it.

Generally considered to be the one immediately after the 2nd. The Swiss fashion industry even made commemorative jackets.

I know it is hot, but do try and keep up.

Switzerland is not boring. You can go in mountains. Or on the lake.
