“Honey, maybe we should move…”

by allthoughtswork

At the fifty-second mark you find out just how big that boulder is when the farm house comes into view.

Imagine standing in your window with your morning coffee and seeing THAT hurtling towards you. The coffee would kick in a lot quicker that day, I can tell you. At both ends.

Which is good because the impulse to shit myself upon seeing all that death barreling down would be overwhelming.

Absinthe is how the Swiss get you out in nature…and then forget you were ever there.

Crime Wave set to hit Switzerland

by duncanr

Remember those old westerns on TV – and the Wanted – Dead or Alive posters ?

Law enforcement agencies in many countries have long sought the public’s help in locating and apprehending villains or those they are anxious to speak to

In the early days, these were artistic drawings based on eye witness reports and often had a cartoonish look to them

Then technology advanced and police started issuing ‘photokit’ images of those they wanted the publics’ help in identifying, locating and apprehending

Next came the ubiquitous CCTV cameras, making the lot of the police a little bit easier since they could now release CCTV footage of villains caught in the act to help locate and capture them

Then along came Switzerland to throw a spanner in the works. Apparently broadcasting CCTV footage of a man with a gun in one hand and a sack in the other as he robs a bank is an invasion of his right to privacy – to protect that privacy the media have blurred the face of a man appearing in CCTV footage police released to prevent his being recognized and his right to privacy violated

Full story here –

I think it’s safe to say a policeman’s lot in Switzerland is not an ‘appy one

Meanwhile, expect an influx of criminals heading for Switzerland !!!

Slow Down

by duncanr

Police in Switzerland have come up with a novel way to get drivers to slow down – enlist the help of an angel

They are paying a man to dress in a white suit, with a pair of wings at accident black spots and wave at drivers to encourage them to slow down.

Personally I think drivers are more likely to slow down if they paid a half-naked woman to stand by the side of the road and wave at motorists – but then, that’s me 😳
