Never been to the Limmat? I've seen people using it to commute.

Re: Suck it, Zürich!!!

You know someone's scraping the bottom of the barrel when they compare a river to a lake.

Re: Suck it, Zürich!!!

First of all, BBC is spelling "Berne" in the British way, so there's that.

Secondly, just stop, it's Zurich, don't even try. Bern doesn't even hold a candle. We have Street Parade, Gay Pride Parade AND Zuri Fest.

So, boom.

BUT, I like how you used "Suck It", you'd make Kathy Griffin proud. So, kudos.

Zurich > Bern.

Only because I can't use that pathetic 10 meters drift in river that the Zürichers are so very proud of, to compare the Aare with.

Sorry, your opinions don't count since you're from Aargau.

Tell it to the adrenaline junkies that sacrifice themselves every year in the Lütschinen river south of Interlaken. Scary stuff those rapids.

Re: Suck it, Zürich!!!

Nope, actually FROM the mighty Midwest, just live in badass Baden. Ever been there? It was the CAPITAL of Switzerland BEFORE "Berne", so who wins now sucka?

Not someone who lives in not-Bern/Wankdorf, that's who.

Now go Swim in your river, and don't miss those railings and get swept into the rapids, while I go take a dip in my sweet lake in Zurich at Seefeld and have some fun times this weekend at Streetparade.

Sorry Semper, but that comment did make me spew my coffee. Too.funny

On a more serious note, I love how lots of EFers are so proud of their own little places that they've called home. The Baselers and Zurichers are usually the loudest in conveying their fierce pride for their own cities and its great to hear a Bern voice from time to time.

It's a fact I find fascinating - apparently the Kantönligeist* lives forth in the expat world as well... especially between Basel and Zurich!

Up-North-city-envies aside, this rocks. I would call this... "the fun you can have when lawsuits are kept in check". Would never be possible where I come from.

don't care where you actually from, it's where you live NOW matters and where you pay your tax (here comes the red blobs) to.

Stop. You're a Badener. You don't get Seefeld Badi bragging rights. Why don't we arrange a 'Badi-Off'? My Badi's better than yours.

Greetings, from Badi Tiefenbrunnen. I'm now going for a swim around the buoys. That's "booeys", in case you're wundrin'.

Tell it to the EF mods Ethics Committee. I've seen others using that "Uncle" moniker, something about wanting to see the baby rabbits......

I also pay my taxes in the United States -- remember, we're a double taxation nation.

The Aare looks like fun for teenagers, but since I cannot put my yacht in it, Zurich wins.

And I get those "bragging rights", my husband is from Seefeld, I lived there AND I have to put up with his mother.
