I wonder if Gaddafi knows that every man in Switzerland has had to do national service in the army. They may be better prepared than he thinks. I believe they all have weapons in their homes?? I don't know where I recall this information coming from, but I remember reading it somewhere. Let's hope it wasn't in one of our daily rags.
"I heard it was against local rules to flush a toilet after 22.00."
Normally yes if you live in apartments and your neighbour flushes their toilet it makes a noise and noise after 10 is not accepted even no baths etc.
Swiss have to do 365 days service before they reach 35, they can buy themselves out of it, not all keep guns at home. One of the guys I work with is a bit of a marksman, another rule is every year you have to shoot a good score or go back to be trained for 2 weeks, most weekends he goes off with several peoples cards and shoots a good score for them to avoid having to do 2 weeks training, I think it’s a nice little earner.
As for Gadaffi I know he did have a oil well down in Valias somewhere, he will be shutting that down then.
