  1. Maybe I shouldn't say so, but he's about 50% correct - about half of our nation are racist pricks. Or "at least" xenophobic pricks. But that's only half.
  2. You mean Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, formally known as Crown of the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania which changed to Commonwealth of Poland with the Constitution of 3rd May 1791?
  3. Once - 1795 for 123 years (out of 1053). Maybe you can count also the occupation during the WWII - it's just 5,5 years between September 1939 and May 1945. But you are young, you might not remember that.
  4. In 966 Polish prince Mieszko got christened - that is to be said a moment of creating the country on a historical timeline. Please, remind me, when was the Declaration of Independence announced? 4th of July 1776? That gives us (as far as I count correctly) 780 years of difference.
  5. I'd say that's how it finishes when you take the ruling out of a monarch and give it all to parlament/government. Another example - Spain (although I doubt that King Felipe would do something in case of Catalonia as he can't even make his own wife respect his parents).
  6. Before I put on my glasses I thought it's Kati Wilhelm. The fact I also had a notification from the thread "Historical Sports Pictures" didn't help either.
  7. I got frustrated with Finnish. Dude (! ), this language is a combination of everything hard that can be.
  8. I can help you with Hungarian and Polish. Russian is also on my "to learn" list, in second place, after Italian, before "something Scandinavian", French (which I'm a little bit afraid of), Spanish and Dutch. I even started Italian, but I'm terribly bad at learning languages alone (while I am really good at learning languages as a rule, which seems strange to me). Finnish is far beyond my interest and after a year of learning it I just know I don't want to
  9. Heretics used to be burnt, you know that? The correct word for that group is "Finno-Ugric", which is part of the Uralic family, while "Nordic" languages (officially "North-Germanic") are part of Indo-European family. Finnish is close to Estonian and is said to be the closest for the Hungarians, which just shows, how far from other languages Hungarian is The thing is emigrants from Ural who came to what's now called Finland didn't meet too many other tribes and this language seems to be closer to the pre-Uralic, while Hungarians met different nations, mostly Turks and it has influences of those. BTW - the closest languages to Hungarian are... Khanty and Mansi - do you guess, in what sport city you can meet these two?

  11. I'm back from a "walk" of my nearest commissions (in fact I only went to see mine, but they were still counting, so I made a little tour). It seems that our Olympic champion Szymon Ziółkowski will remain in the parlament as he gets third score on the KO's list in these six commissions (and they should get 5-7 seats). Of course, it's just six commissions in a city being almost a suburb (a big one in fact, but still) of a third biggest town in Poland, but I don't think our way of thinking is far from the Poznanian one. Maybe the thing that might work in favour of Ziółkowski in Swarzędz is the fact he lives here for three years (what I got to know just during the campaign) and he had quite a few posters in the city (including really big ones). To add something to VolleyRuller96's summary: PiS is national-socialistic party, though it is controversial to call any party this way. The exit poll says 239 seats - with so many social programs they set during last four years, spending public money on, as it is said, "buying votes" they have just 4 seats more than in 2015. That's really poor and Kaczyński seems to have understood that finally, that it's not half of country with him, but half of country against him. At least that's what he said, for the first time I think. And he looked a little bit sick/drugged, but maybe that's just my impression - he is quite an old man. KO needs a change - with combining PO, .N, Greens and some other liberals they lose 8 seats comparing to the result of PO alone last time (adding to that 28 seats on .N - that's a lot). The leader Schetyna is not a leader, he's an anchor. And he seems to understand it - he even didn't want to be a prime minister (which was a great surprise, knowing his ego). Their only program is being anti-PiS, which would be enough in a more democraticly advanced country. And they seem to have no candidate for the presidential election next spring. Left - an alliance of three parties - post-comune SLD, Wiosna, whose leader is a gay, and Razem, which seems to be most far left of this trio. Wise, clever people, indeed, but we're not very leftist nation. Still was hoping for them to have about 15%. PSL-Kukiz - if Kukiz loses his rebel, punk ideas, becomes more diplomatic, he might create with them a new centre party. PSL's reputation is simply a whore - they'd go with everyone. 10% is their best result since... I remember probably (excluding local elections, when they usually have good result). Konfederacja - far-right, but with such a little result, they won't have a lot to say - rather a trivia in the parlament. Their presence has two good sides - firstly, they will take some seats from the other parties, mostly PiS, secondly, they're more right than PiS and the only economically right party, so they might take some voters from PiS in the next four years (which then becomes a little bit dangerous). Exit polls/late polls (surprisingly very little change) might be a little bit overestimated for PiS, if not with percentage, then with the seats. Except of PSL-Kukiz they have no one to go to alliance with and alliance with PiS might be something what even this green whore wouldn't do. What's more - opposition has no way to became an alliance as Left and Konfederacja are on the other poles of the Earth. But they might block something together.
  12. What about the men-men or women-women ? Just another proof that there is no difference between Catholic and Islamic. Neither in such stupidities, nor in the good ways (which are usually ignored by the heads of the local/regional/national/international communities of those religions, breaking the basic rules of those religions - love and peace).
