Love / My husband is Polish and I was wondering why he drinks all the time. [60]

Six drinks on a Sunday doesn't sound like a big deal. Being drunk every night after work is.

Having a drink is no excuse for behaving like an arse. I have a feeling he would be an arse with or without the drink.

ridiculous! actually probably not. but six drinks isn't all that much, especially if he's drinking alot. 8 beers/shots used to be my driving limit. which, is obviously pretty stupid, but it wasn't until i had about 20 that i flipped a car. i still drink alot (not right now i'm stuck somewhere where i can't again), granted not the 18-20 beers a night like i used to, but still drink alot. not because i'm Polish though...im American :P

USA, Canada / American people attitude towards Poles in the USA [98]

just wondering have you ever been to Poland?

no, i'd like to. and plan on it someday, but don't have the time right now thanks to war and all.

i'm sure "they" say all kinds of things...

yeah, "they" are also retarded though.

i want to learn polish, but not many places where i'm from have it. i learned russian in the military. they used to teach polish at the SOF language school, but its not as "useful" as russian so they say.

I'd rather be jokingly known as thief than a retard.

i'm the opposite for sure, i am a self proclaimed retard at work.

He asked what Americans think of Poles...

that's not what Americans think of Polish people dude, if you think that then you are retarded.

Did you ever notice that there are jokes about every nation & race in America?

ditto. when i was at Basic i heard Polish jokes all the time. but thats exactly what they are...jokes. this world is becoming way to politically correct for me, when no one can take a simple joke.

Language / Bought "Rosetta Stone" software and trying to learn Polish... [59]

why is the polish language impossible to learn???

if its anything like russian than it has crazy hard grammar. I've heard some of the more baltic areas have really tough grammar. idk, i don't know nearly enough polish to contribute anything to this. so i apologize.

Law / how do i change my Polish last name [40]

I can't remember when the first time i met another -ski was. I met other people with polish heritage, but they all had "normal" american names. I think one of the first -ski's i met was at basic training, i Solarsky, i asked him if he was russian, cause i thought because the y it wasn't polish, then he told me it was polish. I was like "Finally!" i know a guy in the army from Chicago who speaks polish, and i try to talk to him in polish when i see him, but i don't know enough to really hold any conversation. He always asked me about russian and we try and compare russian to polish. which is fun...i guess

Law / how do i change my Polish last name [40]

If it was me, I'd stand there with a poker face and say, "Wow, that is a funny one. I never heard that one before. Thanks." Then walk away.

Yeah, sometimes i do that. It's funny cause some of them really think its the first time i've heard that.

When i was younger i hated my last name, cause i had never met a -ski (or any other person with a polish name), but when i got in high school i started loving it. I wouldn't want anything else. At the tattoo shop i frequent (once or a twice a week for 2-4 hours...at least!) i'm know as the "Pole" or "the Pollock" (sp?) whats funny is the guy that calls me that is Polish!! he said he used to speak polish alot with his grandmother till he was 7, but it pretty much stopped when she passed away, i guess his parents didn't bother speaking it with him. anyways, the point is...i love my last name. haha

that's the majority of what i can find of polish music, is death metal and the like. My brother's real big into the death metal and black metal, he listens to some of the polish metal bands, not cause they're polish jsut cause they are awesome (in his opinion).

Polish has some pretty good jazz i think. And i liked that band CAMO or whoever, someone put a video on the "Polish Music Video" topic.
