Travel / Why does everyone seem to hate LOT Polish Airlines? [380]

Plane of the LOT Polish Airlines Boeing 767 crash-landed in Warsaw Okecie . On board were 231 people. No one was injured. The machine had an emergency landing after it has slid chassis . Despite this , the pilot safely seated on the machine airstrip . The hero is Captain Tadeusz Wrona . During the landing appeared a small fire, but the airport service was immediately suppressed .

Amazingly perfect belly landing from the pilots.. This particular 767 was built in 96 so not that ancient asia

History / The Untold Battle of Britain [205]

Just watched the polish battle of britain on aus televison. I must say it was a well done documentary, esp the part about the english squad commander spying on the squadron as he didin't believe the amount of kills they got but was then totally convinced. Or the polish pilot who parachuted to safetly only to be shot at to stop him from moving because he was in a minefield. ! liveleak.com/view?i=a61_1277853853 for the doco if u missed it

Life / Three Reasons Why Poles Are Not Regular Human Beings... [16]

#3 In Poland a homeless man was found sleeping half-naked on January 28, 2011, in Cieszyn. His blood had an alcohol level of 1.024 %. Despite the temperature of -10 °C and extremely high blood alcohol content the man survived

#2 There have been reported cases of blood alcohol content higher than 1.00. In March 2009, a 45-year-old man was admitted to the hospital in Skierniewice, Poland after being struck by a car. The blood test showed blood alcohol content at 1.23. The man survived but did not remember either the accident or the circumstances of his alcohol consumption.

#1 In 1995, a man in Wrocław, Poland had a car accident. At the hospital, his BAC was determined to be 1.48%. He died a few days later from wounds from the car accident. Police were baffled as to how an individual could attain such a high blood alcohol. Later, police discussions with his brother in-law revealed that he had "beer bonged" pure grain alcohol allegedly stolen from his place of work, a chemical plant.[43]

Love / Do young Polish ladies 17-23 speak any English? [59]

Intruiged just be aware that a fair number of posters on this thread are trolling and baiting you. If you hang out here longer you will be able to sort the chaff from the wheat. Just be aware not to take everyone here seriously. btw the legal drinking age in poland is 18 :) And yes there is a small percentage of poles who are skinheads and will not like you much but the vast majority are cool as long as u don't crack onto anyones girlfriend.

News / Poland Parliament elections in October 2011 [944]

Yes, I saw some of them yesterday shouting "palić, sadzić, zalegalizować"

Expected blow back from youth when you send masked anti terrorist units breaking down doors looking for a few grams of grass, and then put said posseser of herb in jail with murderers and rapists. Actually decriminilisation of marijuana and other drugs has been proven to reduce societel harms in portugal and czech republic.

PO is now caught between a rock and a hard stone, implement austerity measures to reduce the debt or risk losing EU funding.

Of course closing corporate and company loopholes and increasing tax on the super rich does not enter into their status quo equation. I don't even think they will be able to streamline the public sector to the level that cuts are needed.

News / Poland Parliament elections in October 2011 [944]

interesting that 25 % of young people voted for the palikot movement. The backlash against the mainstream parties has started, it will be the next parlamentary elections where there will be a shakeup.

News / Poland Parliament elections in October 2011 [944]

Exit poles say that palikot party got 10% ! This is amazing.. Good stuff. !

Marcin Sobczyk, the Dow Jones Warsaw bureau chief told us tonight: “It looks like the current PO/PSL coalition can be in for another four years. The current parliament will have a more leftwing character [however] with the Palikot Movement getting 10 percent. The general mood will be far more leftist,” he said, referring to Palikot's promise to legalise soft drugs and his call for a clearer separation between chirch and state.

Travel / NOT COMING TO KRAKOW- KEEP IT! [30]

adamlyshit, shut your mouth, wypierdalaj stąd, wruc do wody i jakies comix, you give polish people a bad name, both in the country you left in bitterness and in england.

poles are way smarter

Unfortunately you are not an example for that. you are only good for painting englishmen houses, and then you can lick their boots for an extra 10 pounds, so in your frustration you come on this forum and have a impotent *****.. (yawn)

Wroclaw, don't hold what i wrote a long time ago, after first coming to this forum and experiencing harry and delphia instantly against me :_)

News / Tusk wants to privatize PKP Cargo. [38]

Indeed if the germans are afraid to privatise DB, why should poland go first with a much more inmature market economy?

@nahummer
nice blog post. A lot of effort when into it.
yes for the money they are spending to build 3 new high speed rail lines that go 250kph they could spend the money to get a multitude more tracks up to 150 or even 100kph. In a country where many regional trains travel at 40kph the hsr is 2 steps too far.

News / Tusk wants to privatize PKP Cargo. [38]

The only important thing is to make sure that there are no barriers to other companies running freight operations in Poland, too. It should certainly not be the case that whoever buys PKP Cargo also buys a monopoly.

This. And the fact the the goverment will be constantly subsidising pkp cargo through investments in rail infrastracture. Privatised Pkp Cargo will pay ridiculously low rates for usage of tracks as is the case now when owned by the goverment. This is good when both are owned by the goverment but not if one area is privatised. I will do some research on the polish rail forums and see what general mood is.

The price is ridiculous , and the goverment should hold on to its assets, at least to subsidize the passenger side of things.

Travel / Why does everyone seem to hate LOT Polish Airlines? [380]

To be fair, you don't know that.

Ironside, how many minutes before departure did you arrive at the gate? was it an iternational or domestic flight?

Did they put you on the next flight? How much extra did you have to pay?

oh the christian mafia as opposed to the russian? :) i don't listen or watch to any pis rubbish. Polsat news is a nice middle ground for me, even if it has a pro big business bias.
