I, myself, am not polish but one of my good friends is and through him I've met a few, enough to want to say Kurwa a lot, (Don't know how it's spelt) So ya, there are a few and all of the ones I've met are really nice people.

Three men were all applying for the same job as a detective. One was Polish, one was Jewish, and one was Italian. Rather than ask the standard questions during the interview, the chief decided to ask each applicant just one question and base his decision upon that answer. When the Jewish man arrived for his interview, the chief asked, "Who killed Jesus Christ?" The Jewish man answered without hesitation "The Romans killed him." The chief thanked him and he left. When the Italian man arrived for his interview, the chief asked the same question. He replied "Jesus was killed by the Jews." Again, the chief thanked the man who then left. When the Polish man arrived for his interview, he was asked the exact same question. He thought for a long time, before saying, "Could I have some time to think about it?" The chief said, "OK, but get back to me tommorrow." When the Polish man arrived home, his wife asked "How did the interview go?" He replied, "Great, I got the job, and I'm already investigating a murder!"

Personally, Kurwa Macz is my preferred saying because you only use it when your truely pissed. And yes kurwa is like using a comma in Polish for some. Not all of us use it to such an extent.

siema kurwa Wink

co prawda pozdrowienia nie z Pekinu, ale z jeszcze cieplutkiego południa! But I'm going to Beijing in February. Well, 'kurwa' is always useful. I remember walking around Guilin and something made me really angry in one of the caves, so I expressed my opinion quite loudly through, of course, 'KURWA' and then, a lady walking in front of me, turned around and said 'dzień dobry!' which is 'good morning!'

Nice evening.

I met a nice Polish architect who lived near Xizhimen, but she moved back home.  There seem to be lots of Latvians and tons of Russians, but few Lithuanians and Poles,  I'm told there are some places in Chaoyang where you can find decent pierogis.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
