Re: People inthe romandie are a bunch of druggies!

How do you apply for a job to make these reports?

The bit that made me laugh was that living in proximity to the vines was a probable cause for drinking too much wine.
I think living next to Denner when they are having special offers would have a similar effect/temptation.

Did you hear the one today about Philip Morris telling the folk in the UK that smoking is bad for you. Better use nicotine patches OR their iqos smokefree new system was their recommendation.

If you fall off a ladder and have had some substance in the last 6 months - then it must be because of your unclean life.
I miss the "unclean" world of my youth where life was not measured in milligrams, units and taxed / stigmatized on any attempt of drugging oneself with legally government sanctioned narcotics.

Um, since when was Basel City in the French speaking part.

"The results also show large disparities across Switzerland. The canton of Basel City appears as most affected by far, with an average of 17 hospitalisations per 1,000 people – more than four times as many as the staid cantons of Zug, Appenzell Inner Rhoden, or Nidwalden."

Or maybe in those cantons, instead of presenting at the hospital after a skinful, they get force-fed an entire pot of coffee, get told to pull their big pants up and stop wussing about.

I watched a documentary on LSD last night and it really changed my perception.

Why? The Romand vines are unique, they produce wine rather than grapes.

It’s either, so boring they are driven to some sort of stimulation or they basically having more fun parties then the rest of us! I like to think it’s the latter

Old News. Everyone knows that the closer you live to the Valais, the more drunk you are.
