Madame, Actually those qualities are not necessary evil in practical terms - they would not give money to lazy/crazy people, they work hard for the money though their intellectual output is of no consequence. It is true that S-land was once an epicenter of particilar kind of cretinism (terminologocal usage) due to endemic goiter secondary to iodine insufficency. But it was taken care of long ago and they are fine now- some even give us advices :). They have great skiing, produce wathches and very goood pharmaceutical industry. I love S/land and have a friends there- nice and friendly people. In political terms I would disregard them entirely. ps. Geneva airport is smaller the our bus station. really cute.
