"with the exception of people from Aargau, who considered themselves very talented flirts."

Women just fall at the site of Aargau men wearing white socks and a speedo at the beach.

Zürich people are busy at working times and so need sleep when off, while the Wallisser/Valaisan sleep at working times and so need activity when being off

Is that in mass, area or volume? For me, I'd be less than 1 Züri, easily, on all counts.

Areas which are busy during working hours Monday-Friday (Bahnhofstrasse, Paradeplatz, etc) get rather deserted at night and on the weekend, and areas which are sleeply during such working-times (Niederdorf, Langstrasse) become busy at night and on the weekend

Look at the shores of the lake. During the week (Mon-Fri) dominated by old women feeding the birds, but at good weather on the weekends nicely busy
