[swiss] tv moment of the weeK:.

swiss tv had the “great” idea to show the inaguration of 43 km transalpine lötschberg tunnel in a 3 hour live transmission. after what seemed like hundreds of deeply moving interviews with monosylabic “mineurs” – no idea how these are called in engrish – [tv presenter: “so how do you feel now that this break through is about to happen?” goofy looking mineur (wearing neon coloured workgear): “great …” tv presenter: “so what are you going to do next?” mineur: “dunno …” etc. etc.], finally the great moment: the symbolic blasting of the last few meters of rock.
however however however…
the first detonation did not break through as planned and while we were enjoying the spectacular images of the detonation in superslowmotion, everybody had to wait for a good half hour, till the dust settled and the poisonous gases evaporated, to even notice this failure.
HYSTERICAL! but i guess you had to be there…

question of the weeK:. why does the smell of my own farts not bother me?
