So, what do we know about Frantisek, Katerina, and Sofie, and Matej?

I'm most of the way through the Czech tree and am really wishing I started taking notes about these four characters early on. For example-- who is married to whom? What does each one of them do? Which one of them put the body in the freezer?? :-D

Just curious what you've figured out about our four friends. :)

This subject has actually come up in the Incubator. We extracted the list, although that is as far as it went. There are too many contradictions, or maybe we are dealing with multiple individuals under at least some of the names.

Not all of these may have been presented to users because of the exercise picking algorithm. And I suppose we may have lost some sentences in processing. I deleted fragments like "little František" on purpose.

Here is a sorted list of 600--enjoy!

Here's my report on František:

František is a big boy with broad shoulders and a large head but no big ears. He is young and doesn't age. He is not a bad man; Kateřina even considers him a good man. František is quite smart but his dogs are smarter. He does not understand traffic rules. He couldn't drink but now he should try to drink less.

František has a big family. He is a dad (he's considered a good father), an uncle as well as a grandfather. He has two married sisters. His sisters used to sing in the garden. His little sister smokes. František is the tallest son. He also has a brother called Matěj, although some say they were not brothers. He used to play soccer with Matěj. His daughter is expecting a child with Matěj!

František has two houses in Prague, but he no longer remembers which city he is in. He also has a very small apartment but he lives with Žofie's parents. He used to live in a pretty strange house. Someone kicked his door.

František is not at home today. He also didn't go to school today. He is not good at any subject. He used to sell cars, but now he sells washers and dryers. He never does laundry himself. František did not work from October to December. He is writing his eleventh book now. And he often picks mushrooms with Kateřina.

František has cheese. He wanted twenty-two trees but someone gave him an ugly sweater. František is happy with his new car. It stood in front of some woman's house all night. Now he is looking for his car.

František is someone's second husband. He is glad that his wife is German. His teacher is also German. František married the wrong woman; he likes an English woman. František loves all women: English, German and also Czech. Some say he married the wrong woman. Others say he is not married. But he is happy with his new girlfriend. He is getting married to Kateřina, despite being married to her already. Kateřina is looking for a cheap bed for him.

František is interested in Žofie. He is quite young for Žofie and afraid of her dog. Žofie thought that her love would change him. František found Žofie's body under the bridge. They locked him up.

An investigation was initiated on František's fox. But he does not wish to be investigated. He had an accident but the bear survived. He struck a bear and died.

František was unlucky.
