That's exactly what we do! Actually, we rotate dinners at a few friends' houses (all of whom have kids). The kids entertain each other and the adults get to have adult conversation. All without a babysitter!
So you eat a lot of raclette and fondue?

Raclette and Fondue are to be consumed with Whine Wine, and not with beer

According to the above, "If everyone in the world had the same BMI as you, it would add 19,222,384 tonnes to the total weight of the world's population" Yeah, f/ck you too BBC.

According to the figures (it's all based on BMI) I'm just below average in Switzerland ("You have a lower BMI than 52% of males aged 30-44 in your country"). That rises to 72% if I change the country to UK.
I think the calculator is broken-I put my stats in and it didn't shame me for being a fatty fatty American

Heh. If I say Switzerland, I'm 56% over average for my age. In Canada, 59% under.

Actually no. (I'm too busy with the donuts). I've lived here for long enough to have had my share, though. Pro tip-if someone says you have to stand on your chair and yodel if you've lost a piece of bread in the fondue pot, don't believe them.

The wine, though. Oh yes!

interesting, switzerland is well above the world average.

if i look at my home country, the netherlands, its basically the perfect average. looks like it actually is the lowest of all western countries. wtf, quite unexpected.

really, you see what you expect to see.

No kidding. Fortunately the rule is only enforced starting with the second drop into the pot. First one's a freebie.
