Yes, you guessed correctly. :):):) I have already put about 20K photos in the net.

1 What is hanging on the wall and why?

They are "ankhs", the Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read "eternal life".
And a some guy who was into that type thing?.

2 What and where?

A defensive territory fortification excavation around Krakow?.

3 What?

A gremlin on top of a pole?.
A secret message to a loved one that "my parents aren't at home"?.
A drain pipe used to pass messages?.

4 Where can you see such pics?

tricky question, I would first say in any Home, School and religious teaching Catholic country.
But I get the feeling you mean where exactly?.
The black board makes me say a school?.

5 Why is the view dear to mature Poles?

Because immature Poles don't drive cars?.

AHHhhh... there is no advert on the "gas station", so it was the gas station during communism?, hence state owned and therefore no need for adverts?.

6 Do you know who these guys were?:

Is that wolverine in the middle, he was an X-man ;)

One of the two, either centre or right is Chopin, Copernicus is the other and the big fella on tha left is Zagłoba?.

7 What animal can you see here:

There looks to be a burrow under the tuffit of grass in the middle.
And because it is beside water, I will say a beaver? no no an otter?.
As I believe he is breathing through the straw in the mid right of the screen, he can not be seen :)

I know I write a lot of nonsense on this thread but the truth is, I enjoy guessing and this is still probably my favorite thread on Polish Forums.

wolverine

I have not seen the new film "x-men origins wolverine" so I was not aware he was "originally" Adam Mickiewicz.

Yeah, that was a bit easy.

Good one, sounds right.

3) thats a special ladder for the cat to let him get in through the window

I hope you are right, cause it is a good answer.

4) i would say in school before christmas

yeah, it threw me, cause it is normal for me...

5) old CPN ( centrala produktow naftowych) station

Yeah, the lack of ads was the big clue (hope we're right).

6) a viper

Can you see him? where?.

That's it!.
Ah, I looked before and didn't spot him (all snakes are male and therefore gay but don't let them marry :)

i can see HER little vipers tits.

They're fake.

And a some guy who was into that type thing?.

Nope, they are crutches left by disabled people who didn`t need them anymore after miraculous recuperation in the Chapel of Black Madonna at Jasna Góra Monastery in Częstochowa. Do you know that deep faith works miracles?

People are kneeling
before the picture

A defensive territory fortification excavation around Krakow?.

Nope. It is a defensive wall, reconstructed and strengthened, at Jasna Góra monastery.

A drain pipe used to pass messages?.

:):):) Nope. A cat in hesitation whether to climb down or not.

The black board makes me say a school?.

Yes, at a regular Polish school or kindergarten.

AHHhhh... there is no advert on the "gas station", so it was the gas station during communism?, hence state owned and therefore no need for adverts?.

Yes. In communist times there was only one type of filling station - CPN - Centrala Produktów Naftowych. Till today some Poles call a filling station CPN.

One of the two, either centre or right is Chopin, Copernicus is the other and the big fella on tha left is Zagłoba?.

:):):) Kochanowski, not Zagłoba. Mickiewicz in the middle, Chopin on the right.

As I believe he is breathing through the straw in the mid right of the screen, he can not be seen :)

:):):) Other guys were right - it is a snake. This species:

I know I write a lot of nonsense on this thread but the truth is, I enjoy guessing and this is still probably my favorite thread on Polish Forums.

I enjoy your guesing very much. Keep up good work! It is just great.

1 What is scattered all over the field?

I presume it is agricultural land and that there are seeds scattered all over the field.
Which seeds? probably bean stalks (from jack), I have no Idea, I am a city boy.
I will say grass seeds?(because it is not in rows?)

2 My cult game. What?

By the crude map/graphics, it looks like a very early strategy computer game (commodore 64)?.
Are trains involved?, looks like infrastructure i.e. defensive and possible attack strategy.

3 What are the boys waiting for?

Girls! :)
With water balloons... boys will be boys.
And when is it..... ahhhhh I forget, it is an easy one though..

A girl, is it dyngus day?

Oh, that'll do, hhmm... no wonder i didn't remember the name, I didn't know it to begin with.

4 Why is the driver having problems?

The driver is not stuck in any mud...
Not on a road.... hhmm tricky....
Can I tell from the photo alone?

5 What is it?

Skeleator! the unfinished monster of Krakow!

6 What`s that over the man?

a backbone from a dinosaur? :)

Looks about right to me.

7 Where were (or still are) such cabins usually located?

Everywhere, I see these all the time.
they are either in the forest or in those small vegetable plots, that were/are very popular ?.

Allotments

yeah, I'd say so.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapel of Black Madonna at Jasna Góra Monastery in Częstochowa. Do you know that deep faith works miracles?

I was at a communion today, it was lovely to be honest and afterwards food, food and more food. (Polish of course).
I think I read before that you are a religious man and although I am open for discussion on this topic I just enjoy your riddles too much.

Drove on the grass and cut up a few ants and a grasshopper.

I will say grass seeds?(because it is not in rows?)

Nope.

No, it was PC game. Strategic and cult for many players. There are trains if you develop your .............. well enough.

A pod for the aliens to reach the mother ship?
A portable toilet?.
A ball that you roll down the hill in?.
An out house (outside toilet)?.

4 A ship in Krakow. What occasion?

That looks like Błonia?.
And they sometimes preform public art works or try to get into the Guinness book of records.
So I think it is a ship made of found items to commemerate Poland's shipping industry? or all the flags would suggest some multicultural event?.

6 What is the boy doing?

Playing guitar on a scythe?.
It looks like an mature theatre and he is sanding down a prop?.
Or a weapon used in a battle re-enactment?.

What: A lecture,
where: in a school,
why: Trying to teach people that baldness is attractive?.
Trying to teach people to hang their jackets up before they sit down?.

A sports hall?. It looks like the sports hall near the Mercedes garage in Krakow.

10 What is taking place?

He is reversing into the house to drop off some cattle?.
He is making a road block in protest about the size of the road?.

A running bird or grasshopper?.

12 What are those lights next to the road?

Those are candles commemorating the people who died on the road?.

13 What does this structure host?

Is that the building beside Dziennik Polska, down at the main post office?.
HHhhmm... Is it one of the two afore mentioned buildings in Krakow?.

14 What and why?

Where bad children are kept... because they were bad.

It is the entrance to a futuristic world ruled by only women, where two cryogenically frozen men wake up after a 100 years of being frozen and are on a sex mission?.

It is a underground storage unit, using the earth as a natural insulator?.

Or a well to arrogate the farming land?.

A crop?

Nope. McCoy guessed - cow dung mixed with straw - the best and cheapest fertiliser.

2 My cult game. What?

"Infrastructure"?

Hey, there wasn`t such a game!

2 What caused the damage?

Something hit it, did the driver hit a dear and the dear flip up and land square in the middle?.

Very good. It was a deer which crossed the road just while the car was driving through the forest. You can see the antlers` marks on the roof.

3 What is it?
A pod for the aliens to reach the mother ship?
A portable toilet?.
A ball that you roll down the hill in?.
An out house (outside toilet)?.

Probably none of these.

And a Polish outhouse looks like this:

or all the flags would suggest some multicultural event?.

Quite right. It is an annual Recycling Festival. Every year they build something special with recyclable materials, the ship was made of alu cans.

6 What is the boy doing?

Playing guitar on a scythe?.

Yes.

Teaching people about the media (the posters behind him look like some photos from media campaigns)?

None of these. But funny anyway. :):):)

A sports hall?. It looks like the sports hall near the Mercedes garage in Krakow.

Sport will be there but not in a hall.

He is making a road block in protest about the size of the road?.

The first one is correct. He is backing into a cottage.

12 What are those lights next to the road?

Those are candles commemorating the people who died on the road?.

No average people. Somebody unique.

HHhhmm... Is it one of the two afore mentioned buildings in Krakow?.

Yes.

Or a well to arrogate the farming land?.

:):):) I didn`t mean the concrete well. The main problem is the area around.
