That works both ways! :)
Alot of Poles have at least partly german heritage. As I said before, this part of Europe is heavily mixed for millennia.

That is true, i know at least 10 people (Poles) that are half or a quarter German, some look very German.

A lot of Germans have Fresian ancestors aswell.

increase your numbers? We should do the same thing in the US.

Then you better get started making some Pol-Am babies!

There are only about 116 million ethnic Russiann in the Russian Federation. The rest are nations conquered by the tsars and Soviets.
On a different score, anyone know what the Russian word ёрш or ёрщ means?

If you don't mention mujihadeen, you are in with a chance ;) ;)

Some Poles are keen on reproducing but I think the birth rate is fairly low.

You all are funny, worrying about Germans and Russians...Come to the USA, it's all shvoogies and they breed like rabbits!

it's all shvoogies

What are shvoogies?
joepilsudski 26 | 1,389

Term can be defined as immigrants of non-European origin...Also can be expanded to included certain sub-strata of African-Americans.

Wow! Sounds like a rather softer US equivalent of 'chig' (a very offensive term used in Northern England for the same groups within society). I wonder what the etymology is?
joepilsudski 26 | 1,389
23 Nov 2010 #43
I explain etymology: It was coined by the comic artist R.Crumb and I find it to be a good alternative to some other terms that are generally considered degrading or taboo...BTW, White Europeans or Americans can also qualify as 'shvoogies'...A certain 'uncivil/anti-social' attitude would also be included in the definition.

I like to take some poetic liberties with words...One I have coined that relates to 'shvoogie' is 'shegabo or shegaboo'.

Sounds good - I may well use it. About 'chig', I'm not sure - either it's a conflation of two well known perjorative words, one about chinese people, one about black people; or like a lot of Leeds slang, it could have Romany roots.

I can answer this.

When a Polish man marries a German woman, the children are suddenly all German, when a Russian man marries a Polish woman the children are suddenly all Russian.

Being that the original Polish genome already carries the other two traits, it caves in easily from pressure on either side..

I have a solution.

More Germans should marry more Russians and then we'd have more Pollacks.

Poles smoke and drink too much, killing the sperm.

No, really?
Did anyone suggest Poles have a problem with reproducing? I don't think so!!!

Over 38millions Polish nationals living in Poland is not a bad number and to add many more millions living abroad, who would complain??

When you look at the statistics (2005) you'll see that some countries, like Russia and Germany gain new citizens from other countries through immigration or refugee programs.

In compare, Poland is on 46 position with only 1.8% -706 000 (in number) new citizens gained from immigration; Russia is on 2 positon with 6.5%- which make over 12millions immigrants ; Germany on 3 position with over 5.4% - 10 millions immigrants as new citizens.

According to: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_immigrant_population

We can't blame immigration...

Turks and arabs in Germany.
Georgians and Eskimos in Russia.

No one blames it. It's just an answer to the original question.

There are a sh!t ton of Poles, the Polish diaspora is huge. not to mention that out of the entire population of Poland, something like 98% are ethnic Poles, very unusual for a country that large.

Can always produce new Poles, German woman x Russian soldier, upkeep in a Polish ethno-linguistic environment = POLE(s)

Many in AMerican can claim Polish heritage aswell, around 100 million If I am not wrong. But most of them consider them Americans so no point trying to get them back to the fatherland :)

Historically have there always been more Russians and Germans then Poles?

Could be because their mothers were all sh@gged by Poles.

The Russian president has recently asked Russians to have three children , and offered a free house to those that do....so there seems to be a shortage of Russkies...!

Actually it is "ёрш". Originally it was the name of the small fish, however, now it mostly designates the the brutal cocktail, vodka + beer.

The truth is that just about every nation in Europe has a very small birth rate and/or kids per couple.
In Eastern Europe it is the worst.

Like you said the Russians are rewarding couples who have more children. I think this is one idea Poland (and others) in Europe need to seriously consider.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_and_dependent_territories_by_fertility_rate

According to the three different sources, Polands fertility rate is near the bottom (you will find other Eastern European nations there too). Personally I find this really disturbing.

Supposedly you need 2.1 Births per woman in Europe to keep sustained population.
Some type of reward would be nice.

Polish people ARE having children , the problem is , that they are not having them in Poland...

Why on earth would we want the lower parts of society rewarded by breeding more stupid offspring?

The UK shows that if you reward babymaking, you just end up with huge social issues down the road.

Do we really need a sustained population?

the Russian word ёрш

Here you are:
1) bristle brush, bottle brush 2) (fish:) ruff 3)a tool for cleaning tubes: go-devil 4) mixture: vodka + beer 5) a cocky/pert person, always eager to fight/provoking fights

There is no such word as ёрщ as far as I know.
