because you kicked all the Germans out. Homogenous is not good since it causes inbred characteristics such as stupidity among other things, it is better to have a variety of genes. Look at the USA.
But of course, you can eat only bigos until the end of your life and watch a mediocre Polish football;)
I was sarcastic in my post :D but only to the point.
First of all the question about the borders have been asked many time in this board and since the Polish government has accepted it on behalf of Polish people I don't see a point in discussing it.
I live in Szczecin and the best thing in the city such as old buildings, parks and the city planning is a left over from the German times.
As for mixing the genes, I didn't mean it literally. Exchanging ideas creates progress, closing yourself in does not and I find that Poles in general are not open to new ideas. That is why I mentioned the US, which has the best universities in the world.
as for Jews, inbreeding has nothing to do with them being educated, business savvy, but with their general will to survive and thrive in any circumstances - they are just tougher breed over all and my best professors at uni were Jewish - interested, informed, hard workers and friendly with students.
As for Polish football, I hear it is not doing so well and that is in newspapers as far as I know.
As for bigos - I love it, but I was using it as an example for the fact that Poles like everything Polish and look down on anything non- Polish. That is not a smart move, but lets Poles stick to what they are familiar with.
Look at the States for what? Ethnic diversity, yes. But, that doesn't mean people are intermarrying. Sure, enough are, but they're loosing their ethnic identity and cultural ties. Then we end up with these black people in power (be it as employer, mayor, president) and the sad part is that most of them insist on playing the race card and basically complaining for the hundreds of years of slavery (in their own ways, of course).
You have a point there. I was merely point out at the import of ideas into the US, which has the higher numbers of patents in the world.
Ethnic diversity is still a rarity in many small rural areas in America too. And they usually have better (sometimes nepotistic) communities (things actually get done instead of complaining)
I am sure you are right, but the places where ideas are generated are not rural.
quoting Polonia1:Its Homogenous because the Germans killed off all the jews and stalin shifted the boarders. Also I guess Biology/genetics isn't ur strong point judging by ur comments.....Or maybe stupidity is a dominant genetic trait in ur family.......anyway why dnt u do somthing better w/ ur mediocre life instead.
I was sarcastic in my post, but thank you for your good wishes:D
Am I happy the current borders? Yes, I could be in Berlin in less then 2 hours:), which I consider one of the most interesting cities
