Life / Why Polish people should be proud of being Polish? [370]

Okay, they're big racist Polack scumbags.

Better? The amount of racism on here from Polish-Americans is staggering - certainly, much more than can be seen from real Poles.

The sadly vast amount of racism on this forum and elsewhere from Polish-Americans :(

Said the biggest troll, racist and a scumbag. No educated, rational reader would ever believe in single claim you post. I know, it's apparently your job...keep making a fool of yourself.

USA, Canada / Moved back from Canada to Poland:). Here are the reasons why. [868]

Well, I caught up on reading your thread today. I like the Misiu story :) It looks like you pretty much settled but I don't think you'll stop comparing your experiences from your western world to your current one anytime soon, if ever. Once you live somewhere also you tend to notice the difference and behavior of locals. Something that is obvious to you as different is normal to them. Even a dirty toilet on the PKP train, they've always been dirty and so became a norm - but you noticed. It's the same with the married guy, people knew, you didn't - but nobody warned you whispering to you 'he is married'. Observing the potential drama and taking"see what happens attitude"is more fun apparently. However dishonest. I can not imagine a family member or a friend who knew the marital status not telling me.

Ukrainian broad spent couple of years in Canada and now she is "western".

Like you are not going to play American when you go back to Poland!

Eurola! The Terrible! :P

Lol. Love all the comments! Pretty funny. My goodness, this topic got many people going. I hope you guys resolve the 'problem' of sex and prostitution once and for good and the old, fat, ugly but rich men and women stop travel the world for sex.

True, indeed, it is none of your business. It is men work.

I wish it wasn't 'men work'... Maybe the world wouldn't be so screwed up? But, we'll get there :))

Cheer up NomadaNet. You are too pessimistic, and stop thinking about nukes. Doom and gloom attitude is depressing. Neither you or I can stop the future or some deranged, power hungry idiot to press the button.

Life / Rate Poland (Life Quality / Culture and People / Food): 1-10! [232]

I would rather live in a trailer park than in some post communist concrete block. Have any of you ever see a trailer inside? They can be amazingly huge and comfortable, unlike the tiny apartment in blocks. Not to mention some quite expensive cars parked in front of the trailers, just the same as in front of nice condo buildings or individual homes.(Ok, I don't know about trailer homes down South). Many people live there because they can not afford the same space in a condo or a house. Some live there because this all they can afford and it beats a beat up apartment in the city in a questionable neighborhood.

In regards to public transportation: public transportation might be good everywhere in the world (Europe) but I want my car in front of the house and to use it at my convenience. End of story. The only time when busses and trains are full in Chicago is the morning and evening rush hour. Otherwise they are a waste of gas and taxpayers money.

Life / Streaming online Polish TV [85]

I use it too. A few of us share user ID and password. It came to $22.00 for six months and a lot of good stuff to watch! All the 'free' websites I checked are just a bunch of crap. Nothing is free. Silly ipla.pl gives some 'free' useless shows and the ones I wanted to watch I can not, in USA that is.

Food / Origin of the pierogi [118]

Yes, flat dough, no yeast. Pierogi are kind of bigger ravioli.

The kapusta/boiled eggs filling is somewhat unusual. I never heard of it. However, the mushrooms with fried onions sound good...Maybe I can talk my friend into improvising this kind of rolls. She bakes something similar with marmalade stuffing, but if she put in ground beef, mushrooms and onions...spices...that could come out pretty tasty.

Exactly. That's the reason you often see a beautiful woman with a pretty average man or a handsome man with a very average girl. They figured it out. Most gorgeous looking couples split. Hollywood comes to mind.

Food / Origin of the pierogi [118]

Do you have an equivalent of the russian/ukrainian pirogi - made with the fluffy yeast/sour dough, and baked?

The picture shows something that looks more like baked rolls, not pierogi. What was the stuffing made of? Meat, cheese, anything also? My mom used to bake similar looking rolls with cheese.

Natasa: Those have to be on the short leash.
Yeah, I know a couple of women constantly sniffing their husband's clothes for different perfume and signs of lipstick somewhere...not for me. I prefer to let the dog loose and have peace. Not worthed the effort. :)

Genealogy / Polish looks? [1472]

Devil is supposed to look attractive.A man needs to be just more handsome than a pig as the wise Czechs say.

Images of devils vary between different cultures, some paint him attractive ( don't), but the images of pigs are painted the same. Actually, pigs are cute.

look becomes irrelevant as far as i noticed at some moment.

Yep. Beauty is only skin deep. My first husband was handsome and all women wanted him, so I had to donate him back... now I want an ugly man.

What can I tell you people...here is a recipe for a happy couple and a long lasting relationship: a man should be only a little bit better looking than devil and a woman should be a little bit uglier than an angel. And, voila! No problems!

Love / Arabs: "Polish women are easy and stupid" [132]

Arabic men can be charmers. I've met a couple during my college years, but to consider them a potential husband based on the sweet bs? The girls gotta a have a very low self esteem or simply look for adventure. Nothing wrong with adventure as long as nobody gets hurt.

Some Egyptians/Arabic can be quite good looking too, but the specific smell of their skin is a turn off (for me). It might be the spices they use? Perhaps the smell of garlicky polish sausage on the blond's breath would stop the Egyptians' short in their declaration of love! :)

Life / Streaming online Polish TV [85]

I have to be within the polish border!?

I also tried to watch ipla and got the message that it is not available in my country (USA).

However, there is a great website where you can watch all movies, polish and foreign, news in polish, documentaries, anything you want - new and old. I share the subscription with six other friends, so it came to 20+ dollars for six months. You can't beat the deal.

I just finished watching 'Szpilki na Giewoncie', what a fun series! Loved it. I highly recommend it.

'Mis'...really? A lot of people seem to like the movie. I watched it a couple of months ago for the first time, and I have no clue what was going on in the movie. Maybe I should see it again.

Polonia / Polish people have no presence in China and most people are confused! [16]

Polish have no presence here and most people are confused, except the rich guys that send their kids to play Chopin.

I am not sure what you're trying to say. 'No presence here", where? in China (since you currently live there), on PF? True, not too many polish posters from Poland. Where do the rich Poles who send kids to play Chopin live? Chicago? Warsaw? Shanghai? London? I'm sure there are a few.

I hope you don't just believe in everything you read here (PF), they are simply opinions of a few individuals, whether they are good or bad, based on their experiences, or what they read in a shady paper or website. Is (was) there an issue with Poles in UK or USA? Sure. But is a mainstream problem? Nope. Few incidents here and there.

So, what's your real beef?

wredotka you are up already! :) Well, I don't know who Kulczyk is but he sounds important. You see, my niece gets a private visit now and than, but it leads to more private visits and it gets expensive at some point. I wish the system work a little better. What if I decide to retire in Poland some day? Will little, old Eurola get any medical help in time before she dies?

My sister-in-law's sister lives in Szczecin and they were pretty snowed in during last few days. I hope you cleaned up you sidewalk well aphro!.It sounds like you are coping well with with winter in Poland. After all, it's gotta be a breeze after Toronto! It's pretty nice in Chicago so far. Some snow..rain and about 50F tomorrow, 30's next week. Nothing to fret about.

(jedna na tysiąc) zarabia tyle co lekarz.

Podejrzewam ze tak. Ludzie wyolbrzymiaja fakty...nie znam tego nazwiska Kulczykowa, ale tak mi mowila chrzesnica co mieszka w Warszwie.

Następnym razem będę bardzo, ale to bardzo ostrożna w kontaktach z lekarzami.
Ileż to niebezpieczeństw czyha na człowieka w przychodni albo w szpitalu...

To ponoć prawda. Lekarze w Polsce nie sa tacy jak byli niegdys. Moja rodzina czeka miesiacami na specjaliste. Najlepiej nie chorowac, komu tam potrzebne te wstretne pastylki. Eeek.

Eurola:
I heard that a beautician in Warsaw makes more than a doctor...(
A doctor is paid by the gov a flat rate and a doctor doesn't care about a patient.

That's just like here! They get paid $35.00 per patient a year whether they see them or not! lol. Can you imagine? The HMO doctor have hundreds of patients signed up to his/her name. They don't have to do anything and still collect a hefty salary. And, if they get to see a patient, they have only 10-15 minutes for them! It is up to you to take advantage of the precious minutes and get what you want i.e. your annual tests. I know, I use HMO.

USA, Canada / Getting a VISA to USA by a Polish person nowadays [339]

skilled laborers left Gdansk to go work in Norway because wages were several times higher?

Not only Norway (but I'm sure you know that already). Sadly, Poland needs to fix the way they pay their workers. It would put the emigration to a halt - immediately. As long as it pays more to be a house cleaner/housekeeper for more money in the West than doing it at home...or to be an accountant, a teacher, a nurse - why not? The capitalistic drive for goods and better life justifies the means to get it.

The kapusta puts hair on our chest. Makes us even sexier!

And, polish women have less of breast cancer because of kapusta, the wonderful cruciverous vegetable every woman should stuff herself with! :)

USA, Canada / Getting a VISA to USA by a Polish person nowadays [339]

I read a little bit of the polish worker bashing but I find it not really true. This is the old style of thinking that polish women clean houses, are housekeepers and polish men are a bad contractors. Some are, just like every ethnicity. However, many second generation polish, many even first, are the best in whatever they do. Their pride in work is appreciated and admired. I had my condo remodeled two years ago, and i had polish painters, plumbers, carpenters...and I would not change them for anybody also. All of them did a superb job. Excellent, honest and with attention to detail. There are a few, if any, polish people coming to the USA now. Too bad. I would hate to hire Mexicans or Asians workers to do the job. Forget the American construction style..quick and done with cheap materials, but charged highly. So there. The few bad apples you people come across, and your personal feeling, should not shape your opinion - try to be true and fair.
