The unbreakable Gutenberg-Marathon-Mug
If you are not aware of why the marathon is associated with Johannes Gutenberg, here is the reason: the Gutenberg Bible, also know as the B-42, features 42 lines per page. A marathon is measured in 42 kilometers as the total distance, so each kilometer pays tribute to Gutenberg for every printed line of text in his Gutenberg Bible. Even though these 42 kilometers are run in every marathon, the particularly significant fact about the number 42 belongs especially to Mainz. We find the idea of the Gutenberg-Marathon in Mainz fantastic!

A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson solve their first case together. A lettfer from Tobias Gregson arrives at Baker Street, he pleads Holmes to help him with an unexplained death near Brixton Road in Lauriston Gardens. Drebber, the murdered man, lies in an abandoned house. The "Rache" is written on the wall with blood. The investigators of Scotland Yard think it could the unfinished name "Rachel" or it could be the German word "Rache", whereby the latter is considered more likely by Holmes, who is proficient in German. Holmes finds a woman's wedding ring on the body. There is blood in the rooms, but not Drebber's, as he seems completely unharmed. To set a trap for the perpetrator, Holmes places a newspaper ad in which he claims to have found a wedding ring, to be picked up at Dr. Watson's and the story takes its course.
