Re: Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

Maybe we are onto a new thread here.

How to know when you are a true Zürcher?

1.) You are no longer insulted if someone calls you a Zürcher.

That's it. Enough.

And no, I wouldn't be a true Zuricher as 1) I've never been to the Opera house and 2) I have no idea what you're talking about.

Re: Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

I consider Zug to be "Zurich and surrounding area" anyway so I voted for that.

Actually, that qualifies you even more: most Zurichers don't go to the Opera house, nor realize how much Zug tax money has supported it..... assimilation well done!

Given your concern, I suggest you move to a proper town to take full advantage of it.

Re: Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

Which then leads me to ask why would people be concerned about something they don't use nor pay for? Sounds like your issues with the whole thing has more to do with your full assimilation into being a Züger. Talking smack to the people who live in Zurich.

I go to the opera house, and it's full of Zurichers.

How can you possibly say that Zurichers don't go to the Opera house, that's absurd!

Terry Hall - get back to the specials. I live in Zug and I don't consider it to be the outskirts of Zurich. I suppose if you live up past Sihlbrug it could be.....

Yeah but "most" means nothing. "Most" people don't go to the opera. Of course "most" Zurichers don't go to the opera, neither do "most" Baslers, or "most" people from Geneva, or Bern. I think you get my point. The opera house of not full of "most" people from any one place.

I already told you I was probably gonna forget something and I did, so no surprise there.

There should be a central Switzerland including, Zug, Schwyz and Luzern.

Goddess - you've become a true Zuricher!....forgetting the Zugers who pay for your opera house... congratulations on assimilating so well!
True Zuger, the opera exists since 1891, canton Zug started paying nine years ago and you already brag about that!

Zürich has an opera house????

Well, it is like everybody in Sydney is proud of our world famous opera house. Very few have actually been inside the place.
