1000 and counting

So as I reach the milestone of 1000 posts I thought it was about time I posted a post with some thought in it rather then lamblasting someone else post or giving some smart arse comment.

It seems my groans versus thanks ratio is actually quite good as I have a relatively low score on groans and almost a 1-1 ratio of total thanks to posts. F I recall I think Nil holds the honor of being the first person to groan me for making some careless comment aboit losing attention on exit lanes on autobahns. My mistake on that one was to not spell out what I really meant.

On observation the majority of posts tend to fit into the categories of:

- Switzerland is too expensive - well its not actually
- Basic how do I find out some really elementary type questions
- Shopping in other countries and how to do it - You travel there you buy something and you claim back VAT at the border. You actually dont need to worry about getting it wrong plenty of others have before you and its not embarrassing
- Those annoying Swiss - get used to them they were here before most of us
- Smokers - Yes there are too many of them and provided they dont blow it in my face then I am fine about them killing themselves, they really do need to pay higher tax though
- Not being allowed to flush your toilet after hours - not a problem for me but then I dont live in an apartment block

Then occassionally there are some super useful postings aboit selling gpods which is actually why I first started using the forum and then I damn well got addicted, its actually worse then facebook this EF for giving you an addiction.

Anyone thats my thoughts at the 1000 mark lets see what I think when I make it to 2000 and even thenI am way behind the senior posters

Now were we to merge Wolli's multiple postings, he would have easily fallen below LIB
