Needless facts

1. Semi-skimmed milk in Germany has 1.5% fat. Semi-skimmed milk in Switzerland (somewhat strangely called Milchdrink) tends to have 2.5% fat, although I think Coop recently reduced their fat content to 1.5%.

2. A deposit - in my case, the extra few pennies you pay for a beer bottle - is called "Pfand" in proper German, but "Depot" in Swiss-German.
