the good ol' mattress would be better, at least you don't pay wealth-taxes.
Umm, yes, you do, as you have to declare cash as well as bank accounts.

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.
There is one option, a very popular one you neglected to include in your list...

I have seen older ones for insane low prices. The servicing costs etc is what scares me. And the fuel consumption? Tempting though.

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
let me help:


Dis: when you can hold it or its right in front of you (Dis ist lecker!)
Das: when your friend is holding it or it is close by (Das boot)
Dat: when its over there somewhere (Was ist dat?)

Go for it!

Think of it this way: If you buy it for an insanely low price and store it, then the value will almost certainly go up astronomically!

As far as I know the only exception to this rule is the AMC Pacer.

That would make it even more difficult for you to keep "Siedfleisch" and "Filet" apart

Treat yourself to a lovely and energizing Massage at my Massage Studio in Basel. :-)

This is what they are offering for my consumption. Almost young enough to be my sons but it's trendy these days to be a cougar.

Re: How to spend my money

Neddy, that's mad. No need to pay for lads like that - as a cougar they come free (or for the price of a beer or two perhaps). I'd want a helluva lot more bang for my buck....

Some of the comments here are not impressive and very sad.

Who gives a shit about a Ferrari? Not me, not you.

They hire Ben Affleck to do some forensic accounting- and if you lie, he'll kill you.

Duh!
