Foorumi reeglid
Alates 30. märtsist on foorumisse Mnemomaratoni tarbeks ehitatud punktisüsteem. Selle eesmärk pole tekitada konkurentsi, vaid lihtsalt pakkuda lisavõimalust mängumõnule. Punktide lisamine seisneb mälumängurite südametunnistusel, kuna igaühel on võimalik teise mängija punkte muuta. Seetõttu jääme lootma, et Te ei kuritarvita seda süsteemi.
Postituse kõrval on alati näha vastaja kasutajanime. Iga õige vastuse eest saab 2 punkti - pooliku vastuse eest 1 punkt. Vastajale punkti(de) lisamiseks vajutada nupule [Mod.] ning seejärel sisestada kasutaja uus punktide arv - kui kasutajal on 14 punkti, tuleb sisestada "16" jne.

The slow reaction might be due to the fact, that this famous book has not been published in Estonian yet...

I'm sure it has been. The film version - which featured Art Garfunkel in a supporting role - is famous. The main character is a man called Yossarian.

Well done Aadu - it's your turn next.

Apologies for the fact 'Catch 22' has not yet been published in Estonian but glad for the fact someone there has heard of it and read it - if only in Finnish.

Speaking of Finland, are Finnish nationals still coming to Estonia to win the 'wife-carrying' World Championships ?

Don`t know about wife-carrying, estonians are the world champions and world record holders and finns arte afraid of estonians, but here`s my question.
Oscar Wilde onse wrote:
They say, Lady H, that when good americans die, they go to Paris.
Indeed? And when bad amerivans die, where do they go?
Oh, they go to ...

So, where do they go?

Not Prague. This city though, like Verona and Prague was a city of the Hapsburg Empire. It is also overlooked by 'the Hill of Heroes'.
