If those URs and UMs are "indispensable",

I meant today. In the past there was such a fashion.

you guys have a bigger problem than you realize.

No, it is you who has a problem with understanding basic things. But I don`t really mind coz I have a chance to educate you, :):)

Are Poles so poor they can't afford full words?

Well, dumbass in 1919 there was a war raging a plague and a general disorder so money was in a short supply and the longer the word the bigger the cost.

so money was in a short supply

No, genius. What was in short supply was common sense. Two dates on a gravestone...Hmm...What could they mean...To eliminate any confusion, we are going to add UR and UM. Now, it's finally clear.

It's like the beginning of a bad Polack joke.

Not everybody is as bright as you, and full of common sense to the brim. Pity you cannot use it in real life to get some friends, and make your family less annoyed with your nagging.

Stupid is stupid everywhere. Cemeteries included. People who need "r" after 1935 have a huge problem.

I went back to the beginning of the thread and found this brilliant idea:

How about the American way: January 1, 1945 - December 31, 2018

Indeed, moving to a different country doesn't make anybody wiser.

True, but leaving Poland, getting here, and starting from nothing is Darwin at his best. All that having come from a place where they need UR, UM, and "r" on gravestones.

Luckily, the Americans who hired me didn't know it. It would be embarrassing...

You`ve been hating everything, everything that could have been. Could have been your anything, now everything's embarrassing

Not everything. Just UR and UM.

A person who needs those should not be allowed to use sharp utensils.

No, you hate much and many more than that. Practically, all your existence is based on total hatred. Think about it.

OK. Now that you said it, I love everybody and everything so I am done posting since there is absolutely nothing to add. See you on the other side.

Happy now?

Back to the moronic UR and UM. Do you personally know what two dates with a dash in between mean or do you need those UR and UM?

That was an honest question, not hate.

Happy now?

No, because I don`t want to see you gone. I like our exchanges. They help me keep up or even develop my teaching skills. :):):)

Do you personally know

Hmm, what do they know? I don`t mean what they know. Anything special????

Do you need those UR and UM because you are too stupid to figure out what 19xx - 20xx mean on a gravestone?

A clue...No, it's not a subtraction. Those are dates.

to figure out what 19xx - 20xx mean on a gravestone?

Aah, I know now - you mean centuries?? 19th century, 20th century and so on???

Those are dates.

Yes, I know but you can forget about taking me on a date.

you are embarrassing, Americans don't care about it and rightly so, you must have some mental disorder to even post about it. WTF wrong with you? People are doing this or that it has nothing to do with you or harm anyone,. so just do something usual for once rather that waste your and others time posting about BS like that..

you are embarrassing,

It takes a nation of total morons to need "r" to eliminate any doubt about what a four-digit number on a gravestone means. It's just the beginning of the list. Next: Ty with capital T. And: Ci with capital C. And, of course, Pan... with capital P.

WTF is wrong with you, people?
