History / Origins of Polish Slavs [138]

The Poles came from the same places as others. People kept moving onto other places where there was more food, more to hunt and gather, and less crowding. That is how Europe, Russia and Asia were populated with humans. They just kept breaking away and moving on, little splinter groups, or races if you will since many of them consisted of a small group of closely related individuals. Sounds kinda weird to us now but that is how things were back then.

Life / Pączki Day--do Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme count? [39]

I had real pączki from Crest Foods the other day, it said it on the box and everything, and they are a little different than just a jelly filled doughnut. They seem lighter or something. These had either raspberry or strawberry filling and powdered sugar. I would think with this name on the box they are the real deal?

Law / Move to Poland with Misdemeanors? [10]

Public Intoxication isn't frowned upon in Poland, it's encouraged.

You can walk around with an open bottle of alcohol, drinking from it and no one gives you a second glance even if you are a woman?

Genealogy / I have Jewish DNA, but only know of Polish ancestry . [120]

and then they come from Noah after the flood are we all Jews?

What it is is three sons of Noah, see, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Jews came from Shem. Japeth gave us people of Europe and Asia Minor.

Genealogy / Do I look Polish? (my picture) [375]

Your eyes remind me of my Polish friend's mom's eyes and she is Polish so yes. In the face you look Polish.

Food / 'Wigilia', the traditional Christmas Eve supper in Poland [77]

Yes! We will all go to the movies. I plan to see Les Miserables. Family members want to see The Hobbit. It's going to be a Merry Christmas. The movies are a tradition with us but I want to eat a fish sandwich because it's Christmas and people are supposed to eat fish to express their faith.

News / Abortion still under control in Poland [2986]

I am pretty much pro choice, just not about mid and late term abortion. Once the embryo's cns is developed, should the woman have the right to abort?

The morning after pill, for example. I am all for that and feel no woman should be restricted about obtaining them.

News / Abortion still under control in Poland [2986]

Women should be allowed to have abortions shortly after conception but to take it to the point where the woman is already several months pregnant is ridiculous. The argument the woman is trying to avoid changes to her body becomes completely absurd by then and late term abortion is murder pure and simple.

Genealogy / The typical Polish look, or all Eastern Europeans [656]

We were trying to figure out where the model is from but now that we know, doesn't have much to do with the topic. I think it's funny we were all trying to figure it out and she's from America.

But trust me, definately not Romanian

I knew a girl from Romania with eyes the same shade as hers. In fact, she reminded me of her, somewhat. Not the same facial shape but the same coloring and eyebrows. So I think she could be Romanian. Romania has varied gene pool.

What about Romanian? To me she didn't seem that pale. Her thick eyebrows reminds me of southern Europe for some reason. I am thinking Croatia or Romania.

I can see a little bit what you are talking about but it is very subtle on her. I only really saw it once when she smiled. There was a fine crease in her chin near the bottom but the rest of the time it was hard to notice.
