Life / Mishmash facts about Poland and Poles [91]

Do you change times for winter and spring?

yes, the clocks changed on saturday night. Something to do with giving farmers more daylight, apparently.

UK, Ireland / Why are Polish people, especially women, so disrespectful toward the English? [281]

later worked in warehouse on the backshift. There was me, another English lad, and a Latvian running around for 12 hours a

frankly, you were lucky to be even taken on. Our local meat facttory send recruitment teams to Romania and Bulgaria, while HR ( a Polish woman) routinely ignores applications from Brits, even while there is a massive sign outside saying 'we're hiring'. Might as well say 'we're hiring, but not Brits'.

Polonia / Poland and France cultures are similar [112]

Is Poland doing something to promote its popularity in France considering many Poles and their descendants helped form the modern French state?

well, apart from the ones that were deported to Auschwitz, that is.
That is what happened to many Polish and others who had moved to France, thinking it was a civilized place.

Mind you i suppose it could have happened anywhere...

Yes i love the way France has 'stolen' Maria Sklodowska by trying to turn her into some kind of 'add-on' to Pierre Curie, when in fact he was her assistant.

Ditto with Chopin.

i dont see anything about France and Poland to compare. France owned a large chunk of the world and told the people there that their ancestors were 'Gauls' - Poland never had any colonies. (sorry, have been reading Ryszard Kapuscinski)

French are mostly mixed race, Polish are not.

France has carried out savage colonial wars, Poland obviously has not.

French people don't wash, and Polish do.

Need i go on?

Life / Why are Poles in other countries called "Plastic Poles"? [168]

It seem to be a purely American (Aglo-Saxon) "invention"

yeh it's a Brit invention coined to describe the kind of Irish people that were born in the UK, but ham up the Irishness. ( as 'Plastic Paddy')

Could they be perhaps.... Plastic bulgarians and plastic Romanians?

:D :D perhaps they are...lol

some things are grossly exaggerated by the press though, Dirk, you must know that.

Dont mention the BBC licence though , I may start foaming at the mouth"!

USA has its own problems of a slightly different nature. As i said, the reason why 1 in 5 Muslims (might be) Muslim, is the same reason that you are speaking English to me now <shrugs> - not a silly comment at all but rather germane to this thread.

Read a little history.

Joker, the USA is a histhole and so is the UK. Let's not make it into a 'which country is histier' competition. Btw i am not and have never been an 'expat'. I wouldnt use that word anyway for old Brit men who married Polish women and got stuck there, it's far too glamourous.

As i have pointed out before, the UK 'Muslim problem' comes from the same reason that you speak English. Get over it.,

yet those non Poles are still exponentially more Polish than the british isle posters

what does that even mean? how can someone be 'exponentially' more one nationality than another? You make no sense.
The vast majority of 'Pol-Ams' maybe had a Polish grandad, tops. Obviously you are different.
Where was your granny from JOker? probably the southern states via the middle passage.
By the way Dirk, i dont disagree with everything you say, on principle. Uk is a **** hole, I know that. ONe of the main problems now is that there arent enough jobs. If only the Bulgarians, Roumanians and so on would eff off home. The Poles are OK .

they're not Poles, they're mixed heritage Americans. Sorry.

and as for " They have no reason to now that Poland has a great economy and wages are much higher " - what does that even mean? If Poland had a 'great economy' then half the population wouldnt have left, like rats from a sinking ship, would they? no.

i mean, just because someone has a name ending in -ski, doesn't mean his granny wasn't a Cherokee, AFrican American, Pakistani, or Italian...

it would be almost amusing if it wasn't so sad.

it's like me claiming to be Irish because we had some Irish relatives who would come for high tea from time to time. You know, drop scones, jam, pot of tea, ham and egg salad, fruit cake.

Then going on a forum and lying about who i am in a confused manner...

..and then going on an Irish forum and giving it large about the evils of immigration to/from Ireland.
Do you see how silly that would be?

UK, Ireland / Why English do not like Polish? [417]

true some yanks also went over the top

and still do. They can give it out , but not take it., it seems. Esp the 'alt-right' pussies.

I did hear on this very forum that Harry had passed away. He was no spring chicken I suppose.

Incidentally I do wish Yanks would stop referring to us British people as 'English', and to the UK as 'England'.

It is such an insult to the Welsh, Scottish and Irish British people. I have tried to explain before, about the concept of 'nation-state' etc., (first year undergrad Interpol) but they don't seem to be able to get it.

I mean, take the title of this thread as a perfect example.
What about Welsh , Scottish and N. Irish people?

Food / What do non-Poles think about eating the following Polish foods? [803]

I am sad because the Polski Sklep has closed down in A., this town in Wales where I am now. Thanks Brexit.
Luckily the one in C. is still open. I buy Silesian style sourdough bread, rye sourdough , kefir, sauerkraut, and cherryJaffa cakes.
British style bread just doesn't compare. Although we do have some good baked goods in the old fashioned bakeries.

but johnny, expecting meat to have fibre in it, and whinging about its lack, is just weird. if you want fibre, eat a bowl of Kelloggs cornflakes, or pencil sharpenings, as they taste similar.

and if anyone is embarrassing themselves here on this forum, it is you. Just saying.
