A new terrorist in town

Hi all.... after reaping the benefits of these forums for over 8 months now.... about time I introduce myself.
I am from Pakistan - hence the title and after terrorizing a UK city for a an year and a half(to be honest, british food terrorized me more than I could terrorize the people *no offense*) I decided it was time to move on to new grounds and moved to Zurich for a PhD at ETH ... and I must say these forums made moving here quite smooth for me.
Now that I can procrastinate all I want, I decided to say hi to you all and thank you for all the helpful posts on these forums.


Faheem

Nice intro. So what are you doing at ETH? Learning how to build a bomb?

Re: A new terrorist in town

Welcome. Joke and a suggestion:

A Pakistani immigrant goes to a Doctor and says "I feel terrible".



The Doctor says "You need to pee and poop in a bucket for a week, throw in a dead fish and a rotting cabbage.




Put a towel over your head and inhale the vapours for 3 days".


The man does this and goes back to the Doctor and says "I feel wonderful!! What was wrong with me?"



"You were homesick..

And you moved to Switzerland to solve that problem

Also Faheem, you realise as a newbie you have to invite everyone round for "biryani night". It's a forum rule.

Anyway, have fun on the forum and thanks for the introduction!!

Plenty taken.

Though most food I eat when I'm in the UK is cooked by Pakistanis, so you've only yourself to blame.

Re: A new terrorist in town

Welcome Faheem

Liked your thread title and introduction. A sense of humour is a BIG bonus, so you are definitely off to a good start!

Enjoy the forum, your studies and Switzerland.

If the going gets tough and you need to hide, then at least there are plenty of mountains to take cover in.

Am also looking forward to your Forum Biriyani Night - oh yeah!

Cheers
