The biggest problem in Poland, which doesnt exist on a great scale in UK, is dog shit

I agree... Gdansk is very bad for this... with my friends in a group at the weekend, as i was walking in front i kept pointing out the shit so people didn't drown!

again, pictures and if you like, video, can be made available. I can watch them from my window. Pupa skupski is what we need here... or maybe straz can fine people for that and make lots of money for the city?

1 zloty per gram should do it...

There are also other ways:

Maybe it's different in other cities, mafketis, but the Poles get my respect for being relatively clean on the streets.

I agree. Tonns of rubbish in streets like in Naples, Italy last year are unthinkable in Poland.

Cheese. Blue cheese. Soft, creamy blue cheese with a delicate flavour, possibly made with goat's or ewe's milk.

You are a lousy shopper if you can`t find blue cheese in Poland.

Sth strange is happening to images. They don`t show. What`s wrong?

I'm not interested in "X is worse" defenses. Littering is wrong, period. It's unhygenic and is indicative of social breakdown. I have no trouble believing that Britain (which no longer exists as any kind of coherent society) has even worse litter problem than Poland but it's irrelevant. There's no excuse for pigs who drop their garbage anywhere (or throw it out of cars).

A few years ago on TV there was a news report from a neighborhood in Warsaw where rats had taken hold. There were several interviews with local people who were calling on the government to _do_ something!!!!!

Meanwhile, the bits of garbage blowing around the street (esp candy wrappings and potato chip bags) made it clear these selfsame people had been feeding the rats for quite some time.

I think Poland would greatly benefit from a number of strategic imports:

1) Proper draught Guinness at Dublin quality levels (It's genetically half my country so it counts).
2) Beer batter chips
3) Decent curry houses and

It is. Read once again the title of this thread.

Gregorz, I'm not British. I'm American and the last I knew (yes, it's been a while since I've been there) Polish amounts of litter are just not tolerated in most of the united states outside of inhuman cities/ghettos. You drop your candy wrapper on the sidewalk and people will tell you to stop being a pig.

Specifically I'd like to introduce American attitudes toward correct litter disposal to Poland.

Clear?

You think the Poles don't know about clear litter disposal, mafketis? I don't think it's that bad to be honest. The occasional idiot drops litter but, overall, they tend to use the bins provided.

It's hovering around zero degress and our hardy english lasses are still walking around in shorts. (Daytime I mean). One of the few good things about living in Britain.

Ive been buying the rib eye from tescos for a while and 70% of the time its tuff as old army boots. The other day i tried the sirloin and i have to say it was pretty good. Worth a crack.

And the total amount of rubbish of all kinds on London streets is absolutely appalling.

Sounds very much like a black ghetto in America. A cesspool.

Lets be serious here, the best steaks in the world mostly find there way into high priced foreign restaurants or New York City. I doubt many people here have tried a true Prime cut of beef. Even Choice is a rarity and costs a significant amount more than you would pay at most good restaurants. Sphinx for instance, would never have a steak rated above Select. Standard or below is what I would expect dining there. You don't go to a restaurant like that expecting to find a real steak. The issue is that the method of producing beef cattle is not at the level in other parts of the world as it is in the States. This is a matter of fact, known throughout the industry. The costs associated are high, and most beef cattle in foreign countries eat a significantly larger amount of grass and fodder than American cattle. The large-scale production of field corn allows American producers to get cattle to market weight at under 3 years of age. Large scale feedlots are not feasible in most locales. British herds also are not of the quality you can find in the States. A hindrance to beef production in Britain has been due to BSE and massive killings in an to attempt to stamp out the disease. Regardless, there is not the necessary market or resources to adequately support a beef industry like that in the American Midwest.

If you want to sit here and argue about good steaks, you should really just complain about the purchaser and the cook at your local eatery. A decent steak is not too hard to come by, but cut and proper preparation cannot be substituted. For quality marbling and texture you need a younger steer grown on a high-grain diet from a good bloodline. Due to this you are usually going to get older cattle in European markets. True varieties of beef cattle aren't even common in places like Poland. The majority of the cattle there are dairy or dual-purpose. Arguing over quality without truly understanding the nature of beef or the beef industry is just inane.

Your real gripes boil down to this:
I was not happy with the taste of my steak, not with the quality of the meat

As for CJD. Statistically I doubt you have to worry about CJD. As well, the prions are not completely understood and the spread of the disease to humans still needs to be researched.

Quite frankly the farther north you go the easier access you have to local corn production. As a result, Oklahoma, Missouri on up through Nebraska and the Dakotas is probably a better production area for Beef Cattle than down in Texas. Not that there is much wrong with Texas beef but I bet they have to import a lot of their grain.
