Re: The First World Problem Thread

My weights felt too light. Feels like I didn't get my money's worth of the work out.

But I got a feeling that I'll have a real FWP tomorrow. Auch.

Yeah, that is not customer friendly, is it.

Raffles though managed to use a metro in Switzerland, which - unless I'm not up to date - does not exist here.
It is impossible to go wrong in LS metro. That's a very decent FWP.

Lausanne does indeed have a metro so it very much exists here.

Wow, indeed it does!

So I apologize to Raffles for being amused - and at the same time backtrack on being impressed.

An other thing learnt. 5,9km is not very much but it's a start and definitely a metro.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Listening to DRS4 news channel via tab/internet is how I imagine listening to Chinese radio: It keeps being interrupted and one starts to wonder, which news one is not supposed to know about.

Yeah. And conductors and orchestras work differently.

But rut rut rut.

I like homework. I am like that.

No. Homework is not FWP. Not doing homework is.

It's too hot, too wet, and too much has been burned ... yes, I am in Australia atm. I'd rather be with my wife and eldest son back in cold, dark Zurich! Will be fixing that soon.

A macabre one: diamond out of the ashes of a dearly departed or fingerprint pendant? I could so imagine the awkward conversations!

Or neighbors, they like that too.

I called one to come down his balcony and park for me. He seemed to have fun with that idea.
