This will be the page every potential Kafka-thread newbie sees while saying "what the...", so let's make it a good one.

Nice Opening

But should it get "sticky" to stay around. Next time, XI, it should be the youngest on board. Then each new one progresses upward in age until the end is reached. Might give me a reason to try to hang on for a few more years.

Don't have. How do I get?

I'm a newbie to these Kafka chats here so I'd be very interested to know the answer to end's question.

end3r7 & Patrick, I guess the nswer lies in some chapter of the thread, but that does not do the trick anymore in terms of finding....so I tell here also:

Well, when Ze after some time roaming Xtratime figured it is a joke to have a webboard on football, but no forum for Brazilian football, he addressed the people in charge and got this very forum.

I knew Ze from talking a bit from other forums and his help for a prediction league, so I showed up in the new Brazilian forum to supply a bit of traffic to it. After all I knew Ze wanted to have more traffic than the Argies, right......

At the same time, like Ze indicated, there was this Brazilian Playboy visuals slinging around the globe. Some dudes who work for the Brazilian governement had been the porn barons, Ze had been the international dealer and I took the job of porn distribution in Europe.

For that, I opened a thread calling up a poster I knew from the Lazio forum, to hire him as the pusherman for Scandinavia. So I titles a thread "Kafka" and wrote like "hey, you might be interested, etc etc". Maybe I wrote something totally different, but the main theme of the story is exactly that.

Some other friends from other corners of XT joined the thread immediately, some joined it a little later and since then we are just fooling around without any given direction, it's fractal story telling, basically.

Unfortunately we also lost people, namely Aquila who I think left XT totally. The sharp wits of Natalya had been here every day instead of every week/month/quarterly period or even less. But since Natalya prefers her then new found hunk and different kinds of Bread Fungus over the duty to perform here daily, what can we do...

Al, you should save this to somewhere, so that when somebody asks this, you don't have to think and write it anymore. Besides, I think the story varies every time you write it

Making my weekly/monthly/quaterly/period post! I have Americans staying in my house (yes Fred, know you'll be surprised), but they are allowed to cross the threshold due to their anti-Bush and anti-War stance. Though I must admit, its hard to get used to the American drawl!

Just dropped them off at the British Museum.

...and having heard the stories of the man of my woman who visited that Allen dude in London, I'm bamboozled of me having to pay fantastic amounts of museum entrance in Vienna, while the houses where they store all the British Colonial thief stuff ( ) are free to enter. An outrage. What about Greek, Finnish, Yank, Estonian, Brazilian, etc museums?

Well the Yanks staying with me were surprised that most of the museums here are free, so from that I'll take it that over there, you have to pay an admission fee!

Amo, if you come to London next year, you'll get to see the Elgin Marbles, which are housed there!

Finnish sauna museum is free. Bear-wrestling is 2 euros a round, though.

And you can visit Sibelius' home for free, also. The bear there is a feisty motherf*cker...

Natalya... I look forward to seeing the marbles, but I'd look even more forward to see them where they belong...

I didn't really understand the Museum question, Al.

And yes, the story of "Kafka start" is changing every time...

Amo, the question was if Greek museums charge an admission fee (like Austrians do) or don't they, as (most) British Museums do. And comeon, the story of the Kafka thread genesis is the same everytime. It's what happened, you had been right at the threadwarming party. And what happenedbefore,making contact with Ze, him opening the brazilian forum,meshowing upto supply traffic, that happened too and I always tell that.

But then again, probably it would be more kafkaesque when all stories are different, so if you can find the time, supply yours (and what you think I told before which is different... )

Also, I just took a break to hang on the terrace reading the paper. And it tells me about the Estonian genom project again, which is quite somethinh and unique worlwide. So how you like it Kadri,and will you file you gene-set to the company?

And oh,the guy who is CEO of the (commercial) company who doesit was quoted: "This project will be of symbolic national importance like Nokia is for Finland".

Well, Kadri, you think it will be in fact of symbolic national importance rather like the Finnish sauna museum is for Finland ?

I don't remember the last time I went in a museum in Estonia :embarass: But they are not for free, tickets ain't expensive tho.

Yeah, when we are really bored, we should ALL write our version, how Kafka started. Should be fun to read

Ah. The museums that belong to the State do not charge anything. Those who belong to individuals do. But that is normal I guess.

And I don't remember the exact story, I just know that you change it every time... that the porn-suppliers were in the Brazilian goverment is a new element... maybe in Kafka XI the supplier will be Lula himself...
