I am ashamed to tell you what I just lost on GM's plunge.

am going to cash out and take my modest profit of $3k.

Soon you may have to change your username to johnny cash. I've never dabbled in stock shares, and I was offered some shares in a storefront glass company in Portland a couple of years ago, but unfortunately I missed the boat.

News / Poland`s aid to Ukraine if Russia invades [12351]

And what is the sentiment of all those body bags of young Russian boys coming home or is that not put on Russian t.v. ?

I've seen this reported a couple of times. Apparently, Putin doesn't want irate mothers taking to the streets like they did back in 2014, when their sons returned in body bags, from the last invasion. telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2022/02/23/russia-deploys-mobile-crematorium-follow-troops-battle/

Feedback / Why are threads deleted or send off topic list? [65]

it might be useful to discuss other aspects of Polish Ukrainian relations than aiding Ukraine during the barbaric invasion. I don`t want to start a new thread.

If it was opened, it wouldn't be long before the thread turns to chat about the invasion, and it would just look like the other one. That thread seems to be closed because it went off topic before. Now, would probably not be a good time to open a new thread about Ukraine.

Why has the initial advice changed so drastically?

As the months roll by, more data is collected. They know more about the virus now, that they did this time last year.

The flight from countries like Afghanistan or Syria works mainly for men. For some countries the percentage of young male refugees is here more than 80%. That is a problem.

Probably when the young men get their asylum citizen papers, they will bring over their family, and extended family.

Does any one here know that it works or can it be dangerous?

Wouldn't think it would be very safe. Can't you go to a hospital as an emergency patient?

result against one of the best teams in the world.

Good result for Poland! I wouldn't go as far as saying they were playing against one of the best teams in the world. What have they won in the last 50 years?

@ Spike31

Public transport companies in the UK still insist you wear a mask when you enter their trains and buses. Whether you're first or last on board makes no difference, you have to abide by their rules and keep your mask on for the duration of the journey.

Let's hope that this Euros final will mark the end of taking the knee, and we won't see it again in football.

It seems in 2 weeks time I will be shopping without a mask :)

I would expect many shops in the UK will insist customers still wear them, at least for a few weeks.

News / Poland Sports News [665]

Some teams (notably England?) have decided to follow the American trend of athletes kneeling rather than standing during the national anthem.

The UK teams still stand for the national anthem, and take the knee just before KO. They have been greeted with boos by a section of the crowd, while some other sections applaud them. You are correct it is in bad taste and is causing a division across the country. Politics should be kept out of sports.

I saw two maskholes wearing double masks

Some people with Certain Medical Conditions need to be extra careful, because if they catch COVID-19 it could make them very ill, with the possibly it could kill them. Surely if they are not yelling at you, or threatening you for not wearing a mask, you wouldn't begrudge them taking extra precautions? There's an old saying here that goes.."It's no skin of your nose"

Language / Mixed English Grammar Thread [183]

When can we say nobody knows nothing?

"Nobody knows nothing" is colloquial language in the UK, so I guess the double negation wouldn't matter. "Nobody knows anything" is formal and correct.

And since I have this clownish immigrant to the US muted now, so cannot read his posts,

You're lucky that you can mute anyone's posts you don't wish to see. Unfortunately it's not an option for me.

Off-Topic / Why PF has died. [231]

If that's too hard on you, why are you both here on an American forum about Poland? Did you consider forums in Austria or Mongolia?

The server is located in the USA, but PF forums are for all international members and quests.
