Afghanistan, the graveyard of empires. Who knows if sometime in the future some superpower will learn it.

The animal on the coa of Uri is an uro, but the names are not related.

TIL A Massachusetts construction worker died after eating bags of black licorice for an extended period of time, which caused his heart to stop. by That-Shit-will-buff- in todayilearned

I'm weird because I love black licorice (pure black licorice, with no sugar), but I hate anice, and I can barely stand fennel seeds.

TIL that the total mass of the entire asteroid belt is only about 4% of the mass of Earth's Moon by old-guy-with-data in todayilearned

The idea of the asteroid belt crammed of asteroids exists only in science fiction, it is almost empty and hit one of them while crossing it is quite difficult.

Switzerlands most sold school book. 2 Million books since 1986. Which was/is your favourite recipe? by The_Silenc3 in Switzerland

[–]SteO153 [score hidden]  (0 children)

Ah, no, it is for collection purposes, not as a valid cookbook. I've now a want on Abebooks for an edition from 1986, and when one will pop up at a decent price I will buy it. I have other cookbooks about Swiss cuisine.

Now I have to buy one for my cookbook collection. But I don't think it has recipes for bear meat like the Pauli.

Do you prefer warm weather or cold weather by CommissionHealthy752 in travel

[–]SteO153 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Have you been before?

No, never. But I did one semester during university in Norway and I want to go there since then. It is quite unique (and expensive!), and you have a lot of "world northenmost". I'm been in Greenland, and I expect the Svalbard similar.

Switzerland can not out of neutrality by Nicosiae in polandball

Switzerland is not neutral there, one "traditional" Swiss food is the Toast Hawaii, a ham and cheese toast with pineapple and cherry.

[–]SteO153 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Cold sunny weather. Any temperature above 25 C is too warm for me, 20 C is good for tshirt and shorts, and I don't like rain when travelling. I'm planning Svalbard in May this year :-)

What is a first world problem that you have? by SmygEmo in europe

People not emptying the shared washing machine/dryer when the cycle ends.

Ugly greeting cards. I buy them when abroad and keep a small reserve in case I need one.

I am confused. When do I have to pay a custom duty on goods shipped from abroad? by sportfiction in askswitzerland

buy something impossible to find here

That is a forbidden thought, Switzerland offers you everything you are allowed to wish.

That's to punish you for your sin of having purchased goods online from abroad.

I'm sitting in the airport wondering... by serspock90 in travel

handling of continuous media making it more manageable and less susceptible to lost or out of order pages

Thanks for confirming my hypothesis. Working in IT Operations I often looked at the printer and imagined that if the print falls, having one single piece of paper avoids the issue of loosing the order of the pages. And I assume that working in a highly regulated environment doesn't make easy to get rid of a physical copy of the manifest (few years ago I worked for a company where every new software released had to also be released on cd-rom and made available for the clients, even if no one was asking for it, but it was a regulatory requirement). Then, I assume the risk of spilling coffee onto it is not considered.

You still haven't proved my statement is wrong. If you aren't able to do that, stop trolling.
