The single greatest miracle is how forgiving and enduring our bodies are.
Even the worst drunk wouldn't dare treat his car the way he abuses himself. Like putting 8 quarts of oil when the spec is 5.

taxi. Come on, this vulgar means of transport is for Britis

So there are no cabs in Poland then? Who knew?

invent something new and original

Like Joe Baxis?

ballet dancing

Ballet dancers eat. Some of them anyway.

Most of them are taken by British commons coming to Poland for weekend drinking parties so intelligent cultural Poles and Polesses use horse transport instead. Ha!!!

This is lost on me. I am not a native even though johhny claims otherwise. Try to apply Polish contexts in the Polish forum, please, so that you can impress us with your knowledge of Polish culture. :):):)

There must be tens of thousands of such parties then. The bar and brothel owners would be so delighted that they'd be wetting themselves simultaneously all over Poland. Ryanair and Wizzair's share prices would probably go up too.

What are "commons"?

Google is your friend, and if it rejects your entreaties, think of it as a puzzle.

Amasing you don`t know your English Sprache! :):):)

(functioning as plural) people not of noble birth viewed as forming a political order
(functioning as plural) the lower classes as contrasted to the ruling classes of society; the commonalty
.

Google is your friend

Sorry, I don`t have time to google for things I am not interested in. It is your job in the Polish forum to explain foreign contexts, not mine. :):):)

not of noble birth

The term you're thinking of is commoners however that includes 90% of szlachta..

Perhaps you mean proles, plebs or chavs. Ours can usually afford to travel for leisure however PL is old hat for them now.

is your job in the Polish forum to explain

Too banal.

That`s how Poles drink - by glasses!

And that`s how they break glasses! An old Polish tradition - have a shot and break the glass.

An old Polish

An old Polish lady I know (even very old nowadays) used to break alcohol (wine/gin/whisky) glasses a lot. Expensive glasses too.

Not deliberately (the key word/phrase here are "alcohol" and "a lot"). Every time it happened (sometimes more than daily), either she or her husband said it was a sign of good luck.
