Life / How are electric cars doing in Poland? [178]

They're growing in popularity amongst Kraków's taxi drivers, who now run into pedestrians much more quietly than before.

News / Poland's John Paul the Great canonisation this year [177]

All in favour of Ryz's comment marking a reasoned conclusion to this digression, raise your hands :)
Agree re Karol... and though atheist to the bone, seriously impressed with Francis. External link, if you're interested: inside-poland/t/francis-goodness-regardless-of-god/

Real Estate / Apartment damage and rental deposit in Poland [20]

If he has the paperwork, he can safely ignore this. I've a friend who runs a letting agency, who has new stories of such attempts at extortion every week. Her clients (the landlords) sign off with an 'okay' and promise to return the deposit... then come back with mysterious damages. I asked her for her stats on this, and she said that 'at least 20' have threatened all manner of legal nastiness in the past year, yet not one has ever come to court.

Life / Classic Polish movies free - and legal - to view online [12]

Yep, that's the one.
There are many and varied ways (often nefarious and usually yielding nefarious results) to get subtitles for Polish films, but it's out there, I promise you - and of reasonable quality translation too.

Enjoy!

Genealogy / THE MEANING AND RESEARCH OF MY POLISH LAST NAME, SURNAME? [4500]

A coat of arms (herb) is often shared, with the defining detail in the centre.
This one:

USA, Canada / General differences between Poland and the USA? [184]

'The good stuff cannot be found in Poland'... are you kidding? There's a micro-brewery thing going on here that would have you begging and weeping for more. Not easy to get hold of, mind, but even in Kraków you can find bars that serve something way more interesting than yellow headache water. As part of the Kraków Post's crack Beer of the Month team, you have my word on that:)

Life / Classic Polish movies free - and legal - to view online [12]

Movies from Poland's most famous directors are now available to view online, and for free, thanks to two new YouTube channels from national film studios.

Titles include Rejs (The Cruise), Marek Piwowski's 1970 comedy, Trzy Kolory Niebieski (Three Colours: Blue), part of Krzysztof Kieślowki's critically acclaimed trilogy, Seksmisja, and Stanisław Lenartowicz's charming 1964 comedy Giuseppe w Warszawie.
