I miss the interlibrary loans. Free service, too! Ch is a first country, but in the library business, it can sure do better.
Join the ETH library. They do inter-library loans.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I didn't know a little village in GraubŁnden could hold so many luxury cars.

The week of the Davos alpine marathon, in BergŁn, I saw two Teslas and a car I thought I read SMART on it, but looked nothing like THE Smart we all know, more like a racing car. I can't seem to find any Smart looking like the car I saw, and I am losing sleep over it.

Maybe Dodgyken was racing through the Davos marathon.

If anything should be powered by walking it should be fitbit right? But seriously you can log a walk later, it will add it to your stats.

And there's no miles in Switzerland

I want to OTBC a f%^&wit new user for being a f%^&wit and asking a f%^&wit question, but I can't as my OTBC powers have been withdrawn for OTBCing f%^&wit new users who ask f%^&wit questions.

I have hardly been able to go stand up paddling on the lake these last few weeks because the top of the car was too hot for me to lean on it to fix the board on the roof racks!

I had to move the V8 out of the way this morning to get the V8 out of the garage in order to have open top driving today.

It's boiling hot tomorrow and perhaps booking tennis court for 2 hours might be more than one can take

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My Green Card (US permanent resident card) was approved in record time - for government standards, that is - but the US Postal Service lost it. Or "lost it"...we'll never know.

[insert very vulgar insults here]

I had to go shopping to get over the anger. Can you believe it?????

Sitting at the back of an 'EasyJet' flight meant that all the best snacks were gone by the time they got to me

Doesn't the trolley normally start from the rear? I always try to sit in the back for that reason.

It departs from the rear galley (fully laden) towards the front of the plane and then they slowly wheel it back to the rear.

Not sure what extra-poverty Easyjet flights you go on but every one I've been on has one going from the front and back so the people in the middle get screwed

Most of your flights have been to/from Scotland, no? Obviously big business for EasyJet snack sales
