The tree is also much taller and has a lot of leaves and branches, making it have heavy wind-resistance up top.

I live in Graubuenden, a Kanton (County, Region, territory, whatever else you want to call it.)

I also am a German immigrant, and let me tell you there is quite a bit of hatred from the Swiss towards the Germans.
Also, everything is ******* expensive.
User avatar #64 to #9 - dispensa (07/26/2013) [-]
We dislike germans here because they often refuse to learn how to speak swiss german, not being able to speak it is one thing, but then there are those that lived here for atleast a year but can barely understand it either, just not giving any effort.

Besides, normal german just sounds snobbish. So all germans seem snobbish to us.
User avatar #70 to #64 - nuclearcomedy (07/26/2013) [-]
That's a blatantly stupid reason to hate it "It sounds snobbish"

You could equally say that Swiss German sounds barbaric, you can't use ad hominems like that.

Also, let me say, it's extremely hard to understand and even learn Swiss German, since it really isn't something you can pick up on the go, nor is it something you can study in a book.

And it's not because of that, that they hate them, it's still because of World War two, so don't give me that.
User avatar #73 to #70 - dispensa (07/26/2013) [-]
Why would we care about WW2?
Hardly anything bad happened to us because of the Germans back then, if anything we made money because the nazis had jewish gold stored here but couldn't get it back once the war was over.

And people find the stupidest reasons to hate things.

It is aggrevating though to see a German who lived here for quite some time to just continue to speak normal German just because the Swiss are required to learn it in schools anyway. If you're going to live in a country try to fit in, especially if it's a really conservative one like Switzerland.
User avatar #76 to #73 - nuclearcomedy (07/26/2013) [-]
So what you're essentially saying is we should assimilate to the culture we live in?
That's not happening, no American who lives in England would try to pick up an English accent, why? Because people don't want to trade in something from their identity, it's understandable, I personally find patriotism retarded, but that's my opinion.

No immigrant should be forced to assimilate, on the flip side, no immigrant should feign ignorance and the like just because it's okay to publicly sacrifice a goat in their culture.
I understand where most Swiss are coming from, however, forcing me to speak in a specific dialect isn't right, I know Swiss people who live in Germany who still speak their Swiss German, nobody actually cares though, they may ask here or there what a word is, but that's it.

I've lived in Switzerland for about almost three years now, I refuse to assimilate my culture just because it aggravates someone.
And living in Switzerland, a country known for its immigration, or at the very least, being known as an immigration country, you'd expect better tolerance.

However, I am speaking from my experiences in Graubuenden, and well, Graubuenden isn't what one would call tolerance paradise.
Also, one shouldn't try to fit in, that's ridiculous, the whole reason multiculturalism is so wonderful is because of the fact that there's so many cultures, if these people all fit in it would be hardly multicultural.
User avatar #80 to #76 - dispensa (07/26/2013) [-]
Problem is, I'd consider swiss german to be more than just a dialect, sure, it doesn't have any grammar rules to it, but it's still more than just the difference between american english and normal english.
I know loads of people who'd want swiss german with all its dialects to become an official national language, one of the main things that's keeping us from doing that is that we'd need a grammar for it, which would be yet another language we'd have to learn in school in this *********** of languages.

However it is true that graubünden is more backwards than other cantons, I live in bern and people here are already butthurt enough about having to learn french and english.

I can see where you're coming from with the cultural assimilation, I don't mind it if people keep traditions and culture from their origin, but I also find it understandable when local residents get upset about foreigners that don't even care enough to learn the language properly.

I don't mind it when come to Switzerland only knowing english or normal german, though in my opinion they should give an effort to learn swiss german if they intend to stay longer.

Foreigners speaking together in their language is one thing, foreigners refusing to speak our language when they talk to us is something different.
User avatar #81 to #80 - nuclearcomedy (07/26/2013) [-]
In my eyes German is German, if both sides understand each other why even care? It's just national pride getting in the way.

I agree with you on the whole idea of them not even being able to speak German, it's awful, they always turn out to be your neighbors too it seems, we have a Brazillian woman, not a word of German, how does she even communicate in the small town I live in?
But I honestly still consider Swiss German to be a dialect, it almost changes from Kanton to Kanton, and the older generations being even harder to understand, it's a constantly changing lingo language, it isn't able to have roots the way Germanic and Romantic languages do.

And don't even get me started on Rumansch.
User avatar #82 to #81 - dispensa (07/26/2013) [-]
Well I admit it might have something to do with me studying germanistics on the side in my education, being quite interested in swiss german and how dialects form in general.
All languages change, swiss german just seems to change more because there aren't any rules to it, so it's a pretty personal matter to how someone speaks swiss german, it has a lot to do with what your elders used to say a lot, basically you can very well guess where exactly a swiss person came from by how they choose their swiss german, words in particular.

Never heard any real rumansch, so I won't start on that, don't worry.

Either way, was nice to see a german's perspective on this matter, sorry if I sounded harsh at times, I didn't really intend to.

Nonsense, you were a delight, and the fact I met someone who lives in the same country as I do and goes on Funnyjunk is a treat on its own. It was wonderful talking with you, and I assure you the fact you weren't like most people who thumb down people for having a disagreeing opinion as the other is also refreshing.

World War Two is completely irrelevant to any sort of immigration, especially in this day and age. Judging me for what my ancestors did, and it being justified is just like black people judging white people for what their ancestors did.
