News / Prime Minister in Krynica on European integration [53]

Crow, Dalmatia was a part of Yugoslavia and not Serbia. Why the talk of that region?

Because he's a Serb and so views all land near Serbia as rightfully belonging to Serbia and all people in that region as targets for raping and/or murdering.

Law / Is it possible to change visit visa to student or work permit in Poland? [14]

It is technically possible to do that without leaving Poland but it's very very difficult to do. However, it is impossible to do so when one only has a week left on one's visa. Sorry. Your best bet is to do three months in the UK and then return to Poland.

Travel / Airline tickets from LOT... changing flights. [29]

Even when the delay or cancellation is due to natural causes, airlines in the EU are legally required to pay for hotel accommodation and meals. But do feel free to demonstrate your stupidity by claiming otherwise.

Love / Help - evil Polish girl after my partner. [39]

I thought maybe I was misunderstanding some cultural aspect of the case!

Certainly doesn't sound like it to me. Sounds to me like the mother has a problem with alcohol and the father is reacting appropriately (although the mother might want to consider making sure the child can not be taken out of the UK, I really would not fancy her chances of getting the kid back from Iraq if the father takes him there).

Real Estate / Poland's apartment prices continue to fall [1844]

Poland is not in a bubble- why does this keep coming back?

Because the only way that the likes of Milky Mark will ever be able to afford to buy a place is if the price of property goes down by 95% and they think that by constantly predicting that the sky is falling, the sky will actually fall. Sad really.

Work / Is finding an engineering job in Poland difficult? Do I have to be fluent in Polish? [17]

Does anyone know how difficult it would be to find an engineering job in that area without completely fluent polish?

The question is what you can offer a potential employer that a Polish candidate can not offer and whether that plus will outweigh the rather large minus of you not being able to communicate with the majority of the Polish staff at the company. In other words, it is going to be very very difficult.

what are the chances that some areas will see a bit of a dive while others remain stable?

Pretty close to 100%. In the current market conditions, some sectors will see falling prices (although I think that 'dive' would be too strong a word), others will see stable prices and others will see increasing prices: it all depends exactly what we're talking about and exactly where it is.

Travel / Any Hooters in Poland? [28]

Nope. Rumour was that they were planning to open up in a couple of locations but were informally advised that their product wasn't sufficiently Catholic for Poland. Both the Hooters copies in Gdansk and Warsaw have sunk without a trace.

Travel / Any Hooters in Poland? [28]

You aksin a keschin? I do believe robust beat combos perform in 'Speakeasy' establishments, and such like.

I suggest that the witness is referring to the 'Hard Rock Cafe' chain, m'lud. The are dining establishments owned by a tribe of what one used to refer to as redskins and are themed memorabilia from popular beat 'combos' and the like.

(plenty of teachers work a mere 9 hours a week to get ZUS paid,

A 'mere'??

Yes, a mere: some of us very regularly work more than 9 hours in a day. Perhaps you should try it?

milky
at 50zl a shot, that can easily be an extra 4000zl in income

an extra 25 private classes a week?? you'd be dead in a month.

Now we're seeing exactly why it is that flats are so far out of the range that you can afford: you simply do not work hard enough. Sorry to tell you this Mark, sorry, I mean Milky, but 34 hours per week is slightly less than most people work.

I also love your maths skills. If lessons are 50zl each and a person wants an extra 4000zl per month in income, they do not actually need to work 25 lessons per week in order to earn that much. So perhaps the problem is not only that you're too lazy to be able to buy a flat, perhaps it is that you are too lazy and too stupid?

Work / Salary for Teaching EFL in Krakow [120]

In Poland only people from certain countries can operate as a dzielnosc gospodarcza and for some purposes running any other kind of business activity is not economically viable (as all of your competitors are running as dzielnosc gospodarcza).

Do you specialise in giving advice on topics that you know nothing about?

Work / Salary for Teaching EFL in Krakow [120]

LwowskaKrakowBelieve me there is absolutely no law to prevent someone to set up a business in Poland whether you are from Latin America, Middle East, China etc as long as :

And as long as the person doesn’t want to set up a dzielnosc gospodarcza. The right to do business in such form most certainly is limited to Poles and certain foreigners (e.g. US citizens can run that form of business but Canadians can not). And given that operating any other type of business will mean significantly higher start-up costs and running costs, the disadvantage which one can be put at in comparison to persons who can run a dzielnosc gospodarcza is enough to de facto prevent one from doing business on a certain scale in certain industries.

You really should stick to giving advice about things which you have a vague clue about.

Work / Salary for Teaching EFL in Krakow [120]

Of course not, if there is no law there is no law.

And the law is that citizens of nations where Poles are permitted to run one-person companies are allowed to operate dzielnosc gospodarcza and citizens of countries where Poles are not permitted to are not allowed to. But do feel very free to ignore this fact and just keep banging on about utter bollocks. This is your best line of drivel since you claimed that B&Bs in London cost double the price at which a room in a four-star hotel can be had!

so, no class prep from you so...

One ‘hour’ in the Polish education system is actually 45 minutes. Fifteen minutes is usually more than enough time to prepare for a 45-minute less. Thirty minutes is certainly more than enough to prepare for a 90-minute lesson. Maths really is not your strong suit, but then do you actually have any strengths at all? It certainly seems not from your performance here.

You Can have a four star hotel in London for the price of a B&B in London (50£ a night for a 4 stars you said,right?) but in Gatwick and certainly not in Central London!

Twickenham, actually. Am I wrong in thinking that that is London? Although do feel free to now move the goalposts and insist on 'central' London now that you have again been proved wrong.

Law / What are the legal and financial consequences of DUI in Poland? [12]

Ban and a fine are minimum. Jail is possible. If you are more than double the limit, you can also have your car seized.

does it also inform other member states of EU,car rental agencies?

Your national license will be taken from you and sent to your embassy so it can be sent home and cancelled.

if refusal to take test is an option?and what are the penalties then?

Refusal to take a test is a crime. If you are really drunk, they can and will legally force you to take a blood test (the justification is that they need to know what medical treatment you need).

However, was it Shaw or Wilde who said that America and Britain are two nations divided by a common language.

It was neither, actually. I'm surprised that a man as learned as yourself should make such a mistake.

Although given that you appear not to know that a question form is followed by a question mark, perhaps you are not as learned as you would like us to believe?

I have medals Harry for the 100metre sprint under 12's and under 14's in the community games,

And doubtless those are the two biggest achievements of your life, which is pretty damn sad really.

AND I have no problems with getting women unlike you Harry..

I'd imagine that any female creature you can get would be unlike me. And I'm sure that they are hugely impressed with the desirable residence which you take them back to: caravans are so fashionable at the moment, aren't they?

Law / What are the legal and financial consequences of DUI in Poland? [12]

a colleague of my husbands just got caught for drinking and riding a bike.

I know a guy who got six months in prison for riding his bike while drunk (he was riding a bike because he had lost his driving licence for driving while drunk).

Life / Poland: worst teeth in the world? [90]

The skill of Polish dentists is on a par with anything I've seen (felt) in the UK and elsewhere, but the prices for private dentistry are much lower here.

I'd say that the dentists here are much better than dentists in the UK or in the other countries I have lived in. And the prices for private work here are pretty much what you'd pay for NHS work in the UK.

Travel / Cheapest eating places in Warsaw? [27]

Just any nice small cheap place for food.

Vega just off Solidarnosci (behind Kino Femina) has fairly cheap and usually excellent food.

Subway do a Sub of the day for 7zl (13zl for the 30-cm version) and a breakfast Sub for 3.90, so you can certainly get three meals a day from Subway for under 600zl per month.

News / 4th Polish Republic may re-emerge [244]

Michnik had a daddy and bro, who were (I think the latter pieace of **** is still alive) genocidal criminals, is that a problem for you ? I didn't hear you complaining about it but of course Kacz's father being a low rank PZPR member (just like parents of many PO politicians) is a terrible thing. How dared he to have a father like that, shame on him.

Michnik never hid behind his daddy, unlike Duck Boy, who somehow stayed out of prison in commie times.

Life / Babcia or Busha - any social class difference? [358]

No, she was Polish and you are an idiot Dopeyandomine. The explaination has been given for the term "Busia" and your lies have been exposed.

If she is Polish, why doesn't she know that it isn't a Polish word? The authoritative multi-volume Slownik Jezyka Polskiego (dictionary) of Karlowicz, Kryñski and Niedzwiedzki (Warsaw, 1905) lists the following forms: “babka, babcia, babciutka, babeczka, babusia, babuœ, babuchna, babunia, babuñcia, babuleñka and babulinka.” The “busia” version is not among them.

Wow, I don't think I've ever before heard of a plastic Pole whose ancestors weren't even Polish!
