$35 Dollars??? When was this back in the 1980`s?

That was in 2010. Today, it's $110.

- renew my American passport. Three weeks and 35 bucks later, it was in my hands.

Liar

In 2010 American passports were $75, not $35 as you claim.
You are a Brit.....correct ?

Do you guys have reading comprehension problems here?

Nope, you claimed that you renewed your US passport in 2010 for only $35 which I found extremely odd, so did Johnny. The fee back then was $75, now its over a $100 and takes weeks to obtain, without emergency exceptions.

You are a Brit.....correct ?

Harry?

What new poster would start complaining about reading comprehension problems for no reason?

You got me. I am actually not even a real person. You know how they can make AI robots that appear to be humans. That's me.

You guys give yourself too much importance. What possible reason would I have to put the effort into creating fake reality? To amuse you?

So I made a mistake about the $35 passport fee. BFD. But the rest - a four-page form and three weeks to get it - was real. Happy now?

You're a real person no AI could fake an a-hole with the uncanny accuracy. Thing is most you talk about is a spin or baloney.

I don't need best for a trolling pest like you. You should be faltered that anyone would waste their time on you. MR 'Brilliance shine from my anus'. I'm not impressed, none one is impressed.

By the way this is an American forum you jerk.

Excellent.

Ironside,

One day, just an an experiment, go to a public restroom, and (1) DO NOT CLOSE THE DOOR, (2) DO NOT USE TOILET PAPER, (3) AND DO NOT WASH YOUR HANDS, and tell me how you and your rear end felt. That's exactly what I experienced in that school in Radom and was told that that was normal there.

You've admitted to us that you used a bathroom without a door, which was intended for schoolchildren after turning up at the school uninvited.

I'm surprised you made it out of Poland alive.

2) Proceeded to use a bathroom facility that was without doors

Let me ask you what your procedure would have been, as a faculty member of the school, if you had witnessed this in your school delph.
OP Rich Mazur 5 | 1,187

I've read it. You...

No, you didn't.

Where did I say that I used the stall without the door? Fact: I used the one with the door.

Where did I say that I used the restroom in violation of the school rules? Fact: I asked first where to go.

Yes, I entered the building without prior permission and stayed in the area where such adhoc visits are permitted. It's called a lobby. After I was cleared by the director to enter a classroom accompanied by a teacher, I was INVITED.

A sick mind is a terrible thing to own and manage.

Back to grafitti. The American grafitti by the gangs is better because it serves a specific purpose of letting the competing gangs know where they will be shot if they trespass. They do it to protect their turf and their business cash flow. Not legal but easy to understand.

Polish grafitti is moronic and without anything that connects with intelligent acts by humans. What purpose does it serve to write "jebac" on a gazebo in a Radom park where kids play? Other than this piece of prose, a monkey with a bucket of paint and a brush would be just as capable of producing the average grafitti found in the Polish cities - just some paint randomly splashed to make what was pretty ugly. The fact that this form of vandalism can be easily stopped before the sun goes down and is not shows the sick attitude by the authorities and the society.

Some of it is puzzling. On Warecka near Kubus Puchatek where I used to live, there is grafitti as high as 20 feet off the ground. That was not easy to do it. To pull this off, the artist needed a ladder or an extension with a remote paint release. All that for absolutely nothing. Maybe Sharia law would be good after all.

My best advise to those tourists whose English is better than Polish: use English and only if you are getting nowhere and you are totally desperate switch to Polish. Thanks to English being mandatory from K to 11 (or is it 12?) everybody under 30 speaks very good English in Poland.

When you use Polish at such places as railroad stations, with that background noise and the fast talking clerk behind a bullet-proof glass, you are screwed and at a disadvantage as I was at Gdansk Glowny one day in September. I couldn't figure out what the hell she was saying.

Then, out of desperation, I switched to English. Now the advantage was mine because she spoke a lot more slowly and used simple words. Was it because she felt sorry for me or because this was the best she could do I will never know. But it worked.

In fact, many young people show some pride in being able to carry on a normal conversation without being first ask "do you speak English?" Today, it's almost a rhetorical question, bordering on offensive - something I am often forced to do in the Palatine Walmart in the United States of America.

Why? It's not America, what with the millions of drug addicts that use them to shoot up. We certainly don't have UV lights in our bathrooms, nor do we have problems with vandalised public conveniences, unlike in the glorious United States of Dysfunction.

It seems that the most popular word in the Polish language is kurwa. The way it's used, I mean the frequency, reminds me how I abused ty wiesz (you know) when I was a kid. Kurwa, a fillerword injected without purpose, has no equivalent in English, it seems. If somebody here can explain why Poles use it in the course of normal conversation and so often, I will be grateful.

In my opinion, the f word we use here is not the same. Maybe s***. It's added to express all kinds of feelings. Like physical pain, a disappointment, anger. When used sporadically, and with that certain tone of voice, it's acceptable in many situations - especially when everybody knows it was meant as a joke. So even in this area, just as with grafitti, the US wins.

BTW, at least where I live, here in Palatine, every park has a bathroom, toilet paper, and water and soap to wash hands. And no missing doors. And there is no way to pay even if you wanted. Not even a coin box if you want to make a voluntary contribution. Hopefully, nobody here will try to copy the restroom brilliance from Poland.

First, my property tax is $5600, not $10k. We own a 2200 square foot townhouse which includes three full and one half bathrooms, three bedrooms, combination living room, dining room and an eat-in kitchen on the main floor, fire place, and a finished walk-out basement. Even the two-car garage is all dry walled. BTW, with two Lexus cars in it. Would you like a picture?

Second, everything is relative. My last salary just before I retired was $117k plus $35k bonus. That, of course, was per year. What is yours?

After retiring, my income took a dive, obviously. Between the Social Security benefits and the interest on our CD's, it's about $90k. I think I can afford $5.6k property tax, don't you think so, or am I overlooking something?

unlike in the glorious United States of Dysfunction.

Just curious to know how and why you came up with that "dysfunction". I am not only not offended, which is a default reaction to everything lately, but I agree with you. I am sincerely interested in you POV on that matter. I could tallk about how dysfunctional the US is for a day and half and still not be done.

Let me know what is on your list. I think the mods will forgive a little digression.

Yes, pretty obvious that it's the same troll that has been here under several different other names.

Can you just drop that bs about my multiple personalities, trolling, and s***, and respond to the subjects I raised if you want to respond at all? I found this forum a day before I signed up, so FO.
