Re: High Fidelity 5's (whats your top 5 anything)

Top 5 Zurich bars
1. El Lokal
2. Barrique
3. Rimini
4. Andorra
5. Nachtflug
6. Federale
(sorry that's 6)

Top 5 worst shopping experiences in Zurich
1. Grieder Paradeplaz - rated so purely for the staff; disinterested, unmotivated, and surprisingly a*seholish
2. Ikea - massive traffic jams, and contributing to general blandness
3. Coop St Annahof (Rennweg) - it's an ok shop, it's just the nexus of rude shoppers in Zurich. Has strong competition in that respect from...
4. Carrefour Dietlikon - ridiculously crowded. Some of the customers appear to be armed.
5. Glatt Zentrum. No decent public transport connections, very hard to find a park. No central food court as such...

Re: High Fidelity 5's (whats your top 5 anything)

Top 5 made up words that became actual words:

1) Ginormous (need I say more)
2) Truthiness (Thanks, Stephen Colbert)
3) McJob (Apparently McDonalds wasn't so happy about this)
4) Frankenfood (should we thank McDonalds for that one too?)
5) Comb-over (he he he)


#1 Reason I love the English language:

You can pretty much make up any word and if you use it in a sentence people will know what you're talking about. And, if enough people start using it, it goes into the dictionary.

Re: High Fidelity 5's (whats your top 5 anything)

Top five non-politicians who will be topped by me come the glorious revolution:

1) Paul Macartney, if only for 'simply having a wonderful Christmas time'. Working at tesco for a nine-hour shift with that crap on a loop made sure I didn't have a wonderful Christmas time.
2) Bono. Give your own fudging money away and stop avoiding tax before telling us to empty our wallets you champagne-socialist twunt.
3) BARRY SCOTT. No-one cares enough about you for you to begin each advert with your own name.
4) Tony Robinson. How about if you actually did more work than the royal family then you could complain about how little work they do. AND NOT EVERY BIT OF TATTY ROMAN POTTERY YOU FIND IS HIGH STATUS YOU TWUNT!
5) Alex Ferguson.
