Appropriate postage? Go the post office and they'll tell you how much you need.

You'll need some stamps and an envelope.

Also some moisture to seal the envelope and for the stamps if there not the sticker type.

When you find the name tag, try this to find his address. On the Swiss rifle site they have a form letter in French and German so you can copy it .

A name and an address, write the letter, and put it in the addressed envelope. Go to the post office and tell them you want to send a letter to Switzerland. They'll handle the rest. Oh yeah, international postage is expensive.

If all you have is a name and a hometown, you need some luck. Hopefully the guy is a) still alive and b) still living there. If the town is small enough, it should go through with just the name and the town for an address. This works more often than you'd think since Switzerland is such as small place. Otherwise, you need to find a more specific address. I have no clue on how to do that one.

Another problem is that a lot of older Swiss don't read English. He'll find one of his younger relatives to translate out of curiousity if he doesn't, most likely. French or German might make it easier on him if you know either.

They are called "Boyshorts," get with the program

They are "in" here to... I don't know any girl or woman who wears thongs anymore.

Id like to find out who started this and kick their ass. You know how many hours of harmless entertainment they ruined? What next jockstraps for women.

On the plus side, there are a couple fine girls at work who still wear thongs.
