Edwin's shit list. The left is a proclamation that Dr. Helmut Zilk's honorary citizenship in Kugelmugel is revoked due to treason etc. The text is too rambling to warrant translation, and should be experienced in its native German anyway for maximum effect. The right lists more of Zilk's sins against the Republic of Kugelmugel.

Despite his struggle against in his mind oppressive authorities, and despite placing the republic at "1 Anti Fascist Place", in a sublimely ironic way, the flag of the Republic Kugelmugel looks like nothing as much as the old Nazi flag, with the swastika replaced with a picture of the round Republic's sole inhabitant.

This ice-cream bar just north of St. Stephen's is probably the easiest and most pleasurable way of gaining weight. My preferred mode of doing so is the strawberry crepe, seen to the left.

I don't even think it has a name, but here it is, marked on the photo. And on the map. Best döner and dürüm I've ever eaten in, well, anywhere. Lean, tender, grilled chicken meat with tomato and yoghurt sauce, all packaged with onion and salad. If you've ever only eaten Swedish kebabs - this is nothing like them. The kebabs served in northern latitudes are rubbery strips of brown meat. These are not. About as addictive as crack cocaine these greasy divine gifts from Turkey make for an excellent snack or late night emergency food.

Situated in the ultra-trendy MQ opposite the entrace to the Museum of Modern Art, Halle has everything from a six-euro lunch to gourmet food - and it all tastes great. For the times when you're hungry and prefer quantity with your quality, you can go for the Cheeseburger or the Club Sandwich. Both are excellent, and both will keep you full for the rest of the day. Even if you speak no German, you may want to ask for the German menu, as the lunch specials are not printed on the English one.

Buoyancy Control Device (BCD, the vest-like thing) with air tank and regulator + pressure gauge. The BCD is an inflatable vest. Together with the weight belt, the wetsuit and your natural buoyancy, you use it to control your ascending and descending. Mostly, though, you use your lungs as a control device and use the BCD for neutral trim.
