Law / CHINESE TO BUILD POLISH ROADS.... [92]

PennBoy
you are peeking a leopard through a hole
so what you can see is just a fleck

the only good side to them is they're alot cheaper than Polish workers, they're not known for quality work, just like Mexicans, do it fast and not persise. road building has been taking so long in Poland because of all the bureaucracy and also corruption politicians are trying to get some of the money, plus EU is partially financing this and they wanna know exactly where every euro is going. Poland should just give the money and let some European company do this with Polish workers, there's plenty of people that need employment, like the National Stadium in Warsaw which is being built by a German company Alpine Bau Deutschland AG.

Polonia / POLES vs BULGARIANS [160]

Tell your roommate, that he's not even a Slav, he's a Bulgar that came to Europe from central Asia, they mixed a bit with south Slavs and they're culture and language is based on theirs, they're wannabe Slavs. He's got an inferiority complex so he tries to look down on other to make himself feel better.

Polonia / POLES vs BULGARIANS [160]

Hehe Bulgarians, i remember how me and my friend beat 3 of them up one time, they were so shocked we hit them, i guess they didn't think much of Polish men. And Serbs they're ok, i know a couple of them, they don't have anything against us.

Travel / Castles and Palaces in Poland (with pictures) [154]

That's why calling something german with a polish name still doesn't make it polish....

Yes you're right, it isn't a Polish castle, its just located in Poland nowadays, it was a castle of the German Teutonic Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary, i believe that was they're full name.

Language / Interesting inconsistency between Polish and Russian [71]

I know in Polish we use praca and robota for work or job like in Russian, a polish guy i know looked wierd at me when i said ide do roboty, as if i was speaking foreign, in the part of Poland i lived we almost always said robota not praca, praca was more of a term used if u had an office job, working phisically was robota.

Language / Ukrainian language similar to Polish? [236]

The Czechs and Poles tend to cut the vowels while Russians say them.For example nazdravi in czech nazdarovie in russian.

I dunno who said that Czech and Polish is similar, i've heard them talk dozens of times and i see almost no similarity, i understand much more Russian than Czech

Language / Ukrainian language similar to Polish? [236]

Yes, "kh" in Ukrainian (English) = "ch" in Polish. "K" is silent. So you would read it as "cholod", correct. Little correction: the city's name is Kharkiv (Charkiv) and khlib (chlib) if you are interested in Ukrainian pronunciation. :)

Thanx Nathan and Sasha, i knew i was right, i heard some idiot German in a war documentary say khleb and khlebushka for bread pernouncing the K, i thought it was the same as in Polish.

Life / Is it me or do any guys in Poland not have shaved heads? [113]

maybe it's because they start loosing hair sooner

No i think there are fewer Polish men with hair loss than in the west, from my observation, it's just the hair style, i don't know hip hop or prison style, guess ppl are trying to look tough

Language / Polish or any Slavic language key to any other Slavic languages? [126]

I understand some Russian, i've got Russian friends so i hear it often, plus i think like 10% of the words in Polish and Russian are the same, just the accent is very different, and if you listen carefully you should be able to understand some of the conversation, just sort of transition your thinking to that accent. Ukrainian if very similar to Polish i'd say about half or almost half the words are the same, my Ukrainian friend was talking with her mother i understood half of what she said, she didn't believe me, so repeated her conversation in English she was shocked as i was at first how similar in fact the languages are.

History / Kashubians are nation in Poland? [123]

I don't understand Kasubians or Silesians, all those Slavic tribes that settled in what is present day Poland, Pomeranians, Vistulans, Polans, Masovians and others, mixed together and formed the Polish nation, if they've lived among us for at least a thousand years they must have mixed with us also, so why don't they just let go and become of a larger nation all those other tribes did, and Silesians are completely weird, they'd rather be part of Germany.

Genealogy / I'm polish and have a darker complexion - WHY? [78]

Pennboy it's not the end of the world. It will be okay, I promise. It's not a big deal to have a tiny bit of tan and hair that is maybe medium brown instead of light. The world will not end because someone has a brown eye and not a light green one.

Did i say something? all i said was that the guy was wrong in his comment.

Genealogy / I'm polish and have a darker complexion - WHY? [78]

hi.. i'm polish and im' kinda dark skinned and black hair..just a question.. why are polish people much darker than for example russians? and why ain't there any blonde people in poland?

Where did you get this S**t! there are alot of blond Poles, as many as Germans, i dunno what part of Poland you were in maybe you saw Gypsies in Rzeszow area or Vietnamese in a Warsaw flea market. There was actually a study done not to long ago and it turned of that 1/3 of us are blond, and 80% got light eyes (blue, green, or gray) plus many peoples hair color gets darker with age, there isn't too many Polish children with hair other than blond or dark blond and most are pale.
