I just recently returned from switzerland, and for most of the time I was there I was thinking about how to make the most out of my time spent there. I was also thinking about how to make the most out of the money I earned.
There is a fine line between making the most out of your time and spending it. Making more money in a year than you would make in a year in the US? That would be a waste of time. Spending more money than you make in a year? Not a good idea.
In the US, you can usually set yourself a budget for your money. For example, if you know you can work overtime for $3 an hour, then you can set that as the amount you will spend on food, gas, rent, and other necessities. As you go about your days, you can go from a budget to having to live on less than you would make in a year.
Switzerland has no such concept of a budget. You can buy a car, but you can spend as much as you want to make it. The reason the Swiss so value spending money is because it’s so much easier to spend more than you make. It’s relatively easy to make a full tank of gas last you a week, but it’s much harder to keep a car running, and the same goes for electricity.
It’s also much more expensive to buy a house than you think. I was talking to a friend about this, and she was surprised that the price of a house in the Swiss Alps is more than double the cost of a house in the US. The main reason is that Swiss houses are built to resist earthquakes, and the government is heavily involved in maintaining the building codes.
The same goes for electricity. Switzerland makes it clear that there are specific standards for electrical systems, so houses built to these standards are much more expensive than those built to standards that require more energy efficiency. The government is also very active in ensuring that the power companies are kept on a tight leash, so if you buy a house in Switzerland, you need to be vigilant about the power lines.
Switzerland is the country most affected by this, because the government requires that house builders meet very specific standards for every new construction project. The building codes are there to protect you, but they are also there to protect the government from liability should a power line fall on your property. So if you have a house built to a standard, they should be enough to protect the government from liability.
The problem is when you’re on a road, there is a lot of road traffic on the roads. We don’t want to be in a car jam and go too far in the right direction. That could be fatal, so go ahead and get a car.
We were talking about code and security for years, but when youre not on a road and the road is too busy to have a car, it’s a far more significant reason to get a car. A car that isn’t a security is definitely not a security.
The first trailer trailer we’re talking about was released on May 30, 2012, and it’s now in its 16th release. The title design is a bit bolder, so I would wager that it will appeal to a small group of people, but the trailer comes with the official trailer design and will definitely be the most important one to have for our community of developers.
