Re: How to spend my money

You may invest in my very expensive Bio vegetables fresh from the garden. I am sure we can come to a good deal (for me).

I have lived in "Die Schweiz" for a few years now and have saved up way too much money, and need advice on how to spend it.

I once blended a 1 dollar bill in some alcohol using a food processor, then diluted the mush by a factor of 100, vigorously banged the jar against the armrest of an old leather armchair. I repeated the procedure of dilution and succussion another five time, which makes a 6C potency according to Hahnemann.

I could sell you a 6 milliliter vial of that stuff. I think 10'000 chuffs would be a fair price.

Treat yourself to a Big Mac meal? Maybe even the large one with extra fries and a large coke?
Now we are talking exuberance, let's mention buying those expensive tiny ketchup sachets from MCDonalds! And no limitations get 2 or 3 for the same pack of fries!
Well, that's what I would do if I had money!

I have lived in "Die Schweiz" for a few years now and have saved up way too much money, and need advice on how to spend it.

Should I:
- Go out drinking with my friends
- Buy a pair of pants in a shop on Bahnhofstrasse
- Invest in gold bullions
- Take a taxi anywhere
- Buy a beer at a bar down town
- Purchase beef in the supermarket

I make CHF 150K a year including bonus. Advice much appreciated.

German lessons it is. I actually Googled this, and came up with Die instead of Der.

Back in the eighties I remember a German stripper who visited my country, her name was Die Die Der Das

Why do I get the feeling that cap should read "Fare grande l'Italia du nuovo!"?

Re: How to spend my money

From your post, I've somehow a feeling that you might be young and impressionable, so...

Anyone with good sense would put as much as possible on a savings account - as do most Swiss...

Whom are you talking to?

On a savings account?! With 0.00% interest and the constant mention "we might charge you minus-interest soon"? Seriously?
the good ol' mattress would be better, at least you don't pay wealth-taxes.
