Yeah, they've done a lot of countries, but sure, you're a special little snowflake.

Fark Switzerland.  I'm sure they can use their leftover Nazi gold to make do, seeing how after they collaborated with Hitler to save their asses, they ripped everybody off after WW2.  "Neutral", my ass.

yeah, it's not just the U.S. subby, other countries as well.
but don't let that stop you from being spoon-fed jingoistic propaganda from your masters at Fox News.

it's good they've done (and i'm sure will continue to do) the flags of many countries. that's the honorable thing to do.

but franky, at this point in the US's relationship with the rest of the world, i'd expect them to pointedly leave the US out!

the fact they didn't is like they whispered in my ear "we know not all americans are trumpers. we know you've got a country still worth saving over there. the world can still take you back to be one of us. don't give up."

and that made it a little dusty in my living room, just for a second.

To be fair, they've probably made a lot more money from being the black market banking system of choice for every warlord and business tyrant.
This was still a nice gesture, though.

It's called Gruyere. Swiss Cheese is a hard cheese named Gruyere, famous for its bubbles, although the bubbles seem to be getting harder to make just the right size. Perhaps mutations are affecting the bacteria. Some Swiss Cheese is faked by drilling or punching holes in inferior Gruyere type cheese. There's a nice castle in Gruyere.

But I would love some of the great Swiss pastries and chocolate I ate when I was in Switzerland. Primo stuff, not all of it exported. I like the marron-flavoured chocolates (chestnuts, which you could buy roasted, in the streets).

Silly things to project on the Matterhorn.

How about a Matterhorn infinite regress? That's my idea, but it ain't copyrightable.

Switzerland didn't collaborate with the nazis. They fully expected to be invaded by Germany and developed a defense plan and built up weapons and ammunition. Germany started the planning twice during the war to invade but gave up before even starting because it just wasn't feasible to win.

After the war switzerland had such a surplus of ammunition that they dumped it into lakes and fishermen are still pulling up bombs and grenades to this day.

As for banking, they did a service by allowing Jews to hide their money from the nazis. It wasn't their fault their customers all died.  In the end they ended up repatriating more than they brought and probably a large part of that to fraudsters pretending to be relatives. But did so under pressure by the USA.

If you're American you might want to take advantage of outside banking (Switzerland won't accept you though) to hide your money from your government since it's almost as morally bankrupt as the Nazi government.

I didn't realize that as an American I was supposed to be angry at Switzerland.

I should see if this tactic gets any traction:

This guy is so clueless he even projected the colors of the Mexican flag onto The Colosseum in Rome.

Yep, green, white and red - pretty sure that's a Mexican flag.

This guy has no clue!

On a different note I've decided to listen to the National Anthem of every country on earth.  I hadn't heard Switzerland's until just now.

:
Nationalhymne Schweiz / Schweizerpsalm - Zürcher Sängerknaben
Youtube bQRImwYqcvs


A lot of national anthems talk about how they defeated their enemies in glorious battles or broke the chains of oppression.

Swtizerland doesn't sing about defeating their enemies though.  They do praise God, but nothing violent.

"When the morning skies grow red
And over us their radiance shed
Thou, O Lord, appeareth in their light!
When the alps glow bright with splendor,
Pray to God, to Him surrender!
For you feel and understand
That God dwelleth in this land.
That God, the Lord, dwelleth in this land."

Swiss cheese is one of the few cheeses which anorexics can eat. This is possible because they can eat all the holes and leave the actual cheese for someone else who is really hungry!

I don't know much about Switzerland. But I hear their flag is a big plus!

Do you know the way to Mordor: Swiss cheese is one of the few cheeses which anorexics can eat. This is possible because they can eat all the holes and leave the actual cheese for someone else who is really hungry!


The weird thing is you can't buy Swiss cheese in Switzerland, just Emmentaler.

Swiss cheese has about 1/3 the sodium of nearly all other types of cheese. I don't know why that is but if you have hypertension and need to control sodium it is the best choice.  See you finally learned something useful in this thread.

You have to report the existence of foreign accounts on your taxes. If you have more than $10k in them, you have to file a FBAR. More than $100k (I think), and there's another form to file.

It's one of the things they charged Manafort with.

Fun fact:  England doesn't have an anthem. The UK does. Scotland has its own.

Closest thing England has is the song Jerusalem.
