"Chatsworth Gardens"

No one said it's called that. You are making stuff up now to save face because you know you are wrong and got caught out by me when you were attempting to mislead another Polish member of PF.

has however been called that in English for at least a century.

Everyone knows your advanced age means you've straddled two centuries but you haven't provided a scintilla of evidence to back up your absurd claim.

You need to go back to Britain where you belong and be put out to pasture.

And coincidentally I found the perfect place for you too; right down to the name!



Saxon Gardens (plural) with no evidence in sight!

Saxon Gardens

"Our Retirement Living PLUS development in the attractive town of Oakham near Rutland Water, is now selling. The development features 29 one bedroom and 29 two bedroom apartments, designed exclusively for the over 70s."

The point is to make it intelligible.

If anyone on here followed your poor advice they would be unintelligible.

After all, you are the one who admittedly runs your translation "services" out of your run down flat and you still got to hustle on the road at your old age to eke out a living.

Clearly, delivering quality never mattered to you and this is why you are still on the prowl to dupe another unsuspecting customer.

a bit safer at night now the police patrol it

You mean safer for Poles now that you stay away due to the police presence.

Police patrols in public spaces are only necessary when diversity rears its ugly head.

Indeed, do you not realize that Polish families would be uncomfortable at the sight of an old single gay British foreigner with Ottoman roots like yourself seen lurking and loitering around for hours on end with no reason to do so?

Hasn't everyone whose balls have dropped and who've had their hole?

I never bother much with your posts; just arguing pointlessly and posting stuff from the internet. Funny sometimes though and always very very predictable.

Come to Europe sometime if you're allowed to travel unaccompanied; you might find that real life is more interesting than the internet and there are even some ladies who might take an interest in you for 100zl (or 50 by the main road to Garwolin).

You might even learn three or four words of Polish.

Polish-Persian brotherhood: 1942

1942

Polish-Iranian friendship started much earlier than... https://polishforums.com/history/pol-shorpy-photo-88175/15/#msg1951117 .
For thousands of Polish refugees from USSR during WW2, Iran became a home away from home.

Iran 2

Writer Ryszard Antolak noted, "The deepest imprint of the Polish sojourn in Iran can be found in the memoirs and narratives of those who lived through it. The debt and gratitude felt by the exiles towards their host country echoes warmly throughout all literature. The kindness and sympathy of the ordinary Iranian population towards the Poles is everywhere spoken of".

Iran 3

Iranians truly set an example of hospitality which has not been forgotten in Poland until this very day.

Requiem for an artist: 2024

Janusz Majewski

"Today the pace of my films seems too slow. However, after cuts and speeding up the narration, they would lose their atmosphere. (...) It's also a question of my temperament - I hate being in a rush", said late Janusz Majewski.

The great director, who gave us Zaklęte rewiry, C.K. Dezerterzy (with the unforgettable character of Gefreiter Kania played by Marek Kondrat) or Lekcja martwego języka among many other films, died last month, on 10th January.

Janusz Majewski

One could write a lot about the chevalier of Polonia Restituta and Gloria Artis orders but I think his work speaks the best for him and itself. For me, personally, he was the greatest adapter of literary fiction for screen in the history of Polish cinema.

Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine...

AI is intelligent but not very original.

Men care about things greater than ourselves like nationhood.

Women only care about themselves and aren't interested in who provides them with comfort and utility just as long as they get it and preferably for little to nothing in exchange.

Men are makers and women are takers.

That alone wouldn't be bad.
The bad is when some old sucker believes that he met the love of his life in a three-time divorced lying bi*ch who recently discovered the alternate use for antifreeze.

Women only care

Women care about everybody else and sacrifice their time, energy and resources to make people happy coz such is their nature. Goddess bless them all.

At the same time, it is males who are mostly selfish and uncaring in life and think only about pampering their sick egos. Too many males are mysogynist azholes, just like Poloniusz. Women refuse to form relations with such losers, that`s why they become so embittered and frustrated..

Goddess, don`t bless those azholes - punish them with even more frustration. hahahaha

A typical Polish city according to AI - it sports the features of Warsaw, Gdańsk and Krakow.



jon357 74 | 21,939
11 Feb 2024 #466
A touristy city anyway, perhaps instructed by whoever worked the AI to contain specific elements.

The result would probably differ if it was asked to synthesise Wloclawek, Sieradz. Nowy Dwor and Grojec.

Nice picture though, although it looks more like a dove or than the atmosphere of a city in Poland.

Grojec.

That`s what my MI - Monkey Intelligence - associates with Grójec:

Sad duty: 1939

1939

Looking at general Tadeusz Kutrzeba's face you can tell that he's not happy. In the photo you see him approaching the commander of German 8th Army, general Johannes Blaskowitz, to discuss the capitulation of Warsaw (which Kutrzeba would sign on 28th September)

We all know the story, no point to sprinkle salt on old wounds; there is however something that escapes many historians and commentators - 1939 was the last year of Polish independence. After the war we were a Soviet satellite for 44 years and then - when the chance for independence finally appeared - venal scoundrels and various foreign agents ensured a rather smooth transition into being an American satellite.

The year 2024 is the 85th consecutive year of Poland being a dependent vassal state. Last time we waited 123 years to regain our independence. Will we have to wait equally long again?

Alas, that's the sad reality. Look at the vomit-inducing, obsequious servilism of consecutive Polish governments towards the USA and tell me we don't act like their vassals.

Applying your logic, a country like Germany is not independent either, and has been since 1945.

The one thing is a dependency on your ally when your ally is significantly stronger in every way and quite the other that song, dance, and circus that Polish politicians from both parties are doing, I would say PO ones are worse in this regard but only some.

What we have is something I have been talking about for a long talking here a lack in Poland of proper elites and decent political representation in this country. The quality of our politics and journalism is low.

We deserve better!

Maybe you should start not only thinking but reflecting upon yourself for real!
Unless you are a renegade in that case you should withhold your worthless opinion.
