That’s my understanding too... never said otherwise

A priest was in there in the top 10 if I remember correctly but I can’t remember the exact word they used.


Edit: found it! See below! Had me worried there to think I confused a diplomat with a priest!
Ah - must be in the image scrolling. For some reason that isn't working for me so I assumed (in the absence of anything I could see to the contrary) you must have mis-translated

I know this will blow your mind, as any sensible logic seems to do so easily, but it's hard to know if a thread is vacuous until you read it and I do like to give Love Doctor the benefit of the doubt.

And at the bottom are Taxi Drivers!

This surprises me indeed. Our local taxi drivers are all in very expensive cars. They charge so much I'm thinking about starting a meth lab or harvesting human organs to be able to pay the fare fees.


Interestingly, in 5 years of regular taxi useage in CH, I've not yet had a first generation Swiss driver and many have stories of a refugee past. Feels a bit like London in that respect in terms of driver profiles.


But if the drivers are not being well paid, who the heck is getting to keep the eye-watering fares I wonder???

I am guessing you can't get an uber in Svhwyz, but in Zürich they have really killed the traditional taxi market. I am also absolutely fine with this as Uber cars are nicer and cleaner and the drivers are much more courteous than the regular Taxis, who are sometimes a-holes. Also there is much more change of getting things back that you accidentally leave in a Uber than with a regular taxi and the driver is easy to trace.

Oh yeah, and I had a taxi driver in Zürich who cloned my credit card and made numerous charges to it which didn't help my opinions.

It was click-bait thread and you fell for it! Admit it!

Vacuous is a rather subjective term, I prefer to call it an “open discussion” thread (a.k.a Friday-Thread-Mid-Week) where the framework of the discussion is set by a title that grabs the attention and the users steer the conversation in the direction they see fit. Suddenly the thread is no longer “vacuous”!

(If there is not enough interest in the topic the users will swiftly move on to the next vacuous thread)
