    If you want expensive real estate, you have to leave the US. Our 900 sq ft 2 br in Geneva was 3800 francs (4400 usd) back in 2011. Made moving to LA afterward seem very reasonable.

    Kid was looking at another place for 2400 that was pretty dated. He was real happy to get this one at 2200. He was happiest about gigabit fios

    I thought CHF went the other direction? Either way, still quite expensive.

    Everything looks expensive when one lives in a self-built underground bunker surrounded by 10+ years of prepper supplies, awaiting the zombie socialist Muzzie apocalypse.

    The franc has weakened against the dollar since then - I was living there when the franc was at an all-time high...and getting paid in dollars, of course.

    A couple of my coworkers are the kind of guys like Flag who quote InfoWars unaware it's poutragetainment. They mention Levin sometimes.

    Boy have those con men found a sweet slot.

    If you've ever heard the opening (6pm WMAL M-F)
    "now broadcasting from the underground command post, deep in the bowels of a hidden bunker, somewhere under the brick and steel of a nondescript building, we have once again made contact with our leader, Mark Levin!"
