    I'd like to pack my whole family up and move there right now...the Swiss German language can't be too difficult to learn, can it?

    Good for them. Is there any way that Liechtenstein could mount an invasion of Spain?

    Wonderful. God bless those who voted this down and pray for those who supported it.
