Life / Fat People in Poland? [161]

All the doctors will advise eating 'healthy' foods, plenty of vegetables and fruit.

agree only with plenty of vegetables. Plenty of friuts will make you fat, just one during the day is fine. Doctors are not dieticians ;).

Life / Are Polish roads really this bad? [236]

That's a consequence of being a major transit route, both north-south and west-east.

realy?? ;) but do I have any alternative?? :/ from Warsow to Płonsk is o.k, at least at night or in the middle of the day. Mojor transit rout with one road lane for each direction and to share with trucks...that's something.

Life / Are Polish roads really this bad? [236]

Polish roads are still bad. Bad is the quality of materials: low aggregate / stone and a lot of tar - it shows the color of the road. By the poor quality of road materials (new roads looks great) after two or three years has folds, is patched. Construction and maintenance of roads in Poland is also more expensive than in some countries (Spain, Greece) where climate is stable. In Poland, the temperature range from - 20 in winter to about 30 in summer. In winter, the holes in the road are created by freezing water in cracks, folds are formed in the summer by the weight of cars. It's as if in winter and summer we drive a car on summer tires and vice versa.

What else? there are so many trucks on the road, where speed is usually lower for them than the permitted speed for passenger cars. I live in the area of national road No. 7, although if it had two lanes ... Damn, in the south hey have the road called Gierkówka. Two-lane road here where I live is only from Warsaw to Plonsk, and then only in Elblag's surroundings. If somebody is a little goes then passing 11 hours is nothing extraordinary, but when someone wants to go on a weekend or more often then it is a problem : ). Passing that way to me from point A to point B, 240 km away, takes 4 hours so average speed is 60 km /h.

Well it seems cut and run and leave her laughing all the way. But reservoir dog dont bother commenting when you cant even write English and someday lets hope something nice happens to you.What an idiot I've been

I would feel sorry for you if you didn't write last sentence. What kind of a woman wants to be with a man who talk like that. You are hurt?? I'm hurt because of your words about polish women while only one left you. Ahh, your precious treasure English..great argment, I conclude you are not too smart, are you??

You and tc were thinking that I was happy for that girl because she left a man and took his property, while I only quoted one sentence and wrote just about it. Your comments only shows what you really think about polish women.

Language / Use of swoj [23]

You can say "Spotkał się ze swoją żoną" (he met his own wife ;)) or "Spotkał się z zoną" - but you don't know whether it's his own or somebody else wife :)

You can change words "swój, swoja, swojego etc" on " mój/mojego, twój/twojego, wasz/waszego, nasz/naszego". But try to use as often as possible first form (swój, swojego)...it sound more natural in polish.

Dam Ci swój długopis - I will give you my own - always :) but in this sentence it doesn't matter to whom the pencil belong. If you want to put strong accent on it, to whom it belong say mój or twój.

I + swój = my own,
Ty + swój = your own (or verb in proper form: mam swój - my own, masz swój - your own.)

Language / Use of swoj [23]

but I can't see the difference between twoj so tend to use this all the time.

because you can use them interchangeably in most cases.
Daj mi swój/twój długopis,
Piszę moim/swoim długopisem;
Dam Ci mój/swój długopis

Sometimes not : „Każdy jest kowalem swojego losu”.

Life / Graffiti problem in Poland [38]

The expression ∀ n ∈ N P(n) denotes the universal quantification of the predicate P(n)[...].

ahahahha :D LOL Excellent explanation, pure logic.

We all agree graffiti is created by vandals (with some exceptions). Question: who did this one?? mohair berets??

Life / Poles - the Nation of Liars? [380]

I am sorry but if you believe the number of hits in google is an accurate statistic for corruption figures in Poland more fool you my friend, I would be more inclined to believe the quantitative analysis.

Jadis, a.k. boletus, grow up to Polish reality and stop clinging at straws...

Are you kamikaze??

Life / Poles - the Nation of Liars? [380]

There is still a very huge influence of the communist way of thinking in polish society. I hope this will change soon, but I am afraid it can take at lest 20 years to totally disappear.

Intresting. My opinion is that if you let people to do this they will do this. It's not polish thing, just policy. Even those who participate in corruption hate it.
