I am sorry but it doesn`t matter really if I missed sth or not.

I am sorry too, because it seems you just want to have a last word in an argument which is why you come up with such a silly answer.

So I will let you have the last word, child.

only bobko has mentioned the word "penis" at all...and it was four times

This is because Bobko fiercely supports Putin in his bloody war against Ukraine, and Brat Putin had long been posing as a true macho on Russian TV when he was a bit younger. Putin stopped at the right time thus not making a fool of himself like that Italian clown Berlusconi.

As for Brat Crow, a staunch supporter of Slavic unity, I asked him once why he takes sides with Russia brutally attacking her Slavic neighbour Ukraine, to which question he couldn't find an answer. Soon after that he went silent altogether.

She had a crush on JR

News / Future of Polish-Ukrainian relations [560]

I thought so when I first read his comments on the Polish language and particularly on his urging Poland to join the Russian empire. Those words of his were simply much too strong to be anything more than a parody. Frankly, even Medvedev who is notorious for his anti-Polish stance would not dare using such words.

Evidently, the Polish sense of humour is quite different from the one among young Ukrainian people ...

Secondly, and much more iimportantly, he is dead now and cannot reply and defend himself

You missed my point completely.

He wouldn't defend himself against being called antisemitic, homophobic and racist because he was absolutely proud of those views of his. What you consider "wrong", he would consider "right" and "proper".

Yes, Kosciuszko Insurrection was badly timed

Possibly, but we cannot judge history from the perspective of later times. In 1794 no one knew yet when Catherine II, that German princess from Sttetin, would die. Also, few people could envisage if her son as a tsar would have a sentiment for Poles or not; to be honest, he was first of all against all what his mother did.

Poland after the second partition was nothing more than a Russian protectorate, a mere mockery of what she was before. As people of the time described her: Silly Poland without Poznań! (Głupia Polska beż Poznania!).

Pawian, I don't understand why talking about Adrian as being racist, antisemitic and homophobic should be 'disrespectful', if he himself was so proud of those views of his when he was alive.

In a way, people recalling these attitudes of his are paying him some sort of respect ...

News / Polish Parliamentary Elections 2023 [933]

Former PM Leszek Miller says he will pick Mateusz Morawiecki. It is because Duda - according to Miller - wants to replace Jarosław Kaczyński as head of PiS in the future. Thus, the president can't do otherwise ...

We will know for sure in the evening when Duda addresses the nation.

So, no statue [in Poland] then... Chicago Poles have more respect for their ancestors than the degenerates they left behind in Europe.

A very big Kościuszko statue in Kraków is situated right at the main gate to the Wawel Hill. It shows him sitting on a horse as setting off to the battle with the Russians at Racławice. It simply cannot be unnoticed by anyone approaching the main gate.

And since the Wawel Hill with the Wawel Castle on it is a must-see for anyone visiting Kraków (and especially for those flying over from the US), the question that comes to mind is this:

- Joker, was your memorable trip to Kraków three years ago real, as you claim it was, or was it fake as many members of this forum have long suspected?

Genealogy / Help Translating 1880s Marriage Bann (Chicago - Polish) [24]

Researching Polish family history is not a straightforward business,

Speaking of ancestors, and a on a side note, I have watched a documentary on the Vikings in Ireland yesterday. There have been plenty of documentaries on them lately on channels like Planete+, Viasat History or National Geographic, so I have become a little bored with the subject, but that one was really good. Amazing history showing a lot of Viking heritage in Ireland. The Irish people have now up to 20% of Norwegian ancestry in their blood! Also, the documentary showed several town names in the south of Ireland originating from the Scandinavian languages (one of them is Cork). And lastly, tremendous archeological findings from the Viking era in the very centre of Dublin!

An interesting story. I admire your perserverance in finding out all this!

It seems that the scribe heard "w Rościborze" where they had told him "we Włościborze". Pelplin and Włościbórz are quite apart, so he must have been unfamiliar with the latter toponym.

News / Polish Parliamentary Elections 2023 [933]

An interesting analysis of the political attitudes of the Polish PM in today's RZECZPOSPOLITA.

"At some point, he stopped being interested in the economy and became interested in the political power. And since in power, it meant in the position in the party. And since in position in the party, it meant in ideology. This was the beginning of the end for Mateusz Morawiecki ..."

The article concludes that Morawiecki is now ending up as a loser ...

Morawiecki. Twarz porażki PiS.

News / Referendum to decide about exotic immigrants in Poland [445]

The aim of this referendum was not obtaining genuine answers to genuine questions, but to increase the support for the PiS party.

Thus it is irrelevant to discuss the wording of the questions.

Strange.....

All the four questions in this ridiculous referendum were ones of the Soviet-style type:

- Please tell us who your idol is, and why is it comrade Lenin?

which is why so many voters listened to the oppostion parties urging them not to take part.

Z północy czyli Wikingowie??

Wikingowie to znacznie późniejszy koncept. Figlerowicz, który był kierownikiem tych badań, mówi przede wszystkim o Gotach, którzy przybyli na Pomorze w pierwszych wiekach naszej ery, a potem wędrowali wzdłuż Wisły, zajmując ziemię na jej prawym brzegu aż po Lubelszczyznę i Podkarpacie. Potem wynieśli się na dzisiejszą Ukrainę. Lewy brzeg Wisły zajmowali Wandalowie, którzy (na pewno nie wszyscy) wynieśli się w czasie wędrówek ludów najpierw nad Dunaj, a potem przez północne Włochy i Francję dotarli do Hiszpanii, gdzie na jakiś czas się umościli, by na koniec osiąść w Afryce Północnej (okolice dawnej Kartaginy), gdzie założyli królestwo wojujące z Cesarstwem Wschodniorzymskim.

Adrian, sad to say, was a troubled and weak individual, in and out of jail because he couldn't control himself

I wonder what the cause of his death at such a young age might have been. Personally, I suspect some sort of substance abuse, at least in the background, if not directly.

This is Zwiahel in Volhynia. The script is a confusing mixture of Russian and Polish spellings. The town was called Nowogród Wołyński between 1795 and 2022.

Liczba mnoga od oko to są oczy, ale po rosole plywają oka tłuszczu a nie oczy. Dlaczego tak jest?

To jest relikt liczby podwójnej. Gdy istniała jeszcze w polszczyźnie liczba podwójna, to "oczy" było liczbą podwójną, a "oka" było liczbą mnogą. Teraz formę "oka" stosuje się do obiektów nieożywionych, a "oczy" do ożywionych (zwykle jest para oczu), zatem powiemy "pływają oka w rosole", nawet jeśli tychże ok są tylko dwa.

Podobnie rzecz na się z rzeczownikiem "ucho";
ucho - uszy - ucha (np. od torby).
