And no matter how many times it is advised, it still isn't true. The tap water here is perfectly safe to drink.

Tastes vile, but I've never heard of anyone getting ill from drinking it. To be honest, it's no worse than the water from Essex or other parts of England where the water is heavily treated.

I have stopped drinking Polish tap water and i notice the difference. Wouldnt go back to drinking it personally, its a pain in the arse having to dispose of all the plastic bottles but still.

How many people die each year on Polish roads - does anybody know what the stats are?

Oh my I remember allways when I am at my dad's work. Allways some cars crashing becaouse it's a cross. when you hear the iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii from the halting then everyone Oooooooo! Then it's a crash or not. If not then everyone ooooh. But if it is then OH YEAH!

Sons of ******* they deserve a crash in a while :D (Ofcourse if we hear that someone died later we all feel sorry for her/him.

1. Worst thing ever! When I was born in Norway I got my personal number and final. While in Poland I don't get in while I am born and I got to get loads of numbers for everything and nothing!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

this is what a good discussion is about: good laugh.

well im not gonna go around lifting their kilts ..

Polish men would never wear those, that would be so unmanly.

...oh no wait, those were scotish haha

it provides good ventilation: in my books Scotts are smart people;)

yeah, the humour is a bit absent around here lately...somehow all threats end up in fights...you can almost feel the claws and teeth...

True, they feel too macho, but its the same around all of the east-block...its bizarre

ventilation AND also the chance to flash someone you dont like :D, OR have a quicky at the back of a dark alley...multitask is the good old scotish kilt :P

oh i thought of one more...taxi drivers...they always charged me more when i was there :*(

no kidding.

.somehow all threats end up in fights..

warrior syndrome, full moon, bitterness, lack of whatever with whomever, low vibrations, lack of exercise, poor diet, too much alcohol, not enough alcohol, the reasons vary.

Attitude is important.

you can almost feel the claws and teeth...

I call it practicing human instincts: who knows.

True, they feel too macho,

true,

but its the same around all of the east-block...its bizarre

it would be interesting to find out why, although I am not sure if all the Eastern block is like that.

low vibrations

Yeah batteries might be almost done...(if you know what i mean ;)

I've traveled a bit in eastern europe, and yeah they are a bit like that, i remember my bulgarian friends were always telling to their female peers, "i cant cook, you are the woman go to the kitchen" the girls just did it. if you do that to a dutch girl, she would smack the hell out of you, no kidding.

But let's not generalize many might be,,but maybe others are not, we just have to meet them yet...

Oh yes, i saw many posts on the roads. I went to the sea the other day rode about 400 km and i swear i counted over 100 crosses on just one road that proves the roads are crap in poland !! Also sometimes when my mates leave warsaw to get 100 km outside it can take from 2 hr to 3 hr's that crazy !! The roads are bollocks here ! They think they so good in building and all that but the roads like crap !

I had something different in mind: low energy level over all but I think you are making a good point too;).

we just have to meet them yet...

one needs to be optimistic and I will work hard in order to be less sarcastic:)

I could write a 100 things which **** me off here :)
But I won't do that ;)
To make a long story short(er)....
People care soooo ******* TOO much about what other people will think.. or at least that's how they act aaaalll the time... You can't be single when you're 30, you can't date a black guy, you can't have flashy hair or funny clothes and especially you CAN'T BE GAY! Because what will the neighbours think? The whole family will abandon you! blabla!

And than.. When you walk on the street, try to cross the street or bike through this agressive drivers, when you go to the shop and the lady in the shop puts all her hate and unhappiness in her 'DO WIDZENIA'.... Than it seems that nobody gives a **** about what other people think.

I don't get it. Living here for almost two years and still don't get it!
I'm moving out in a few months. I have enough of it.
Poland is beautiful and I met a lot of nice people over here, but jesus...!
LOOOOONG way to go!
Cheers

Wow, that was a good and perceptive post, Loesje. I agree that Poland is beautiful and has many nice people but the hatred is instilled. I call what you said the 'do widzenia na odpierdo* siÄ™'. It's downright nasty!

Yeah, the indifference is incredible at times. I sometimes use a controversial statement to spark off discussions in class. Otherwise, they just shrug and don't care. When in Gliwice.....LOL

I'd be at my wits end if I let it get to me but I don't. I miss my family, they are much more alive.

over 10 000 people a year

That really is a horrible number. There's a direct correlation with stress. I wish people wouldn't treat life so much like a battle. Relax and let things flow, take it in your stride and don't endanger the lives of others.

That really is a horrible number.

Isn't it just?

Yet the Polish state seems happy to allow it to continue - when they could cut the death rate dramatically by putting unmarked police cars out there with cameras. A few instant-bans handed out for dangerous driving (let's say - 7 days in the first instance) would soon change driving habits.

The saddest thing of all in Poland is that people take risks with small children in the car and a wife on top.

Having said this - our sport of 'let's annoy as many 40 year old idiotic male drivers as possible' seems to be great fun :D

I was disappointed by the glaring lack of cameras on the way back from Warsaw, terrain which should have been prime pickings for catching people out. Unmanned police cars need to be the norm in some parts.

I am of the same opinion

well I have to apologise you for the mistake I have made
I don't know why it somehow stuck to my mind that the number of car accidents victims is over 10000 - I don't follow such things closely - so I though I am making an educated guess - seems like it was not well educated

In 2006 the figure was lower than 6000 so I guess it is not much different now
I had some doubts about the 10 000 figure that's why I checked it out
Anyway I was absolutely sure that the figure is still like a town vanishing

Polish ppl love to talk in superlatives, 'the best', 'the longest', 'the most ......' etc without showing any evidence of any of this

I think that's a universal trait. I've seen it from a lot of people (from around the world.)

i'd say it;s a trait more typical for the British...
