    I don't really have a precise idea of Poland.... The only impression I get is that of a quite cold country.... Is it?

    Not really. In the sammer we have very high temperatures, but Winter is quite cold. Look at the weather map in TV.

    I only knew most of the players' names of the polish national football team, because a polish friend and a croation friend always played Poland vs. Croatia in Fifa 2002 and 3 :p :D

    Actually I only know 2 players, Dudek and Rzasa...and that's because they play or used to play in the Dutch league.

    Hehe. Poland is famous for football players. I don't believe it. ;) Yeah Dudek played in Feyenord but now he's playing in Liverpool, Rzasa and Smolarek are still playing in Feyenord. Oh and don't trust Fifa 2002 and 2003 because maybe they knew about some players but their position on the pitch is not the same as in the really world.

    I know more about Poland than about football, so it doesn't make much of a difference to me ;)

    my favorite name was ... hehe, absolutely can't spell it :p
    Kryszaowisz? Something like this. :D I hope that's not a nasty word now :eek: ;)

    It is Kryszalowicz. He plays (or played) in Eintracht Frankfurt.
    And no it's not a nasty word.

    And yes we have a water holiday and it's always on the monday after Easter. It's called Lany Poniedzialek or if you want a traditional name it's Smingus-Dyngus. This day is a one big water war. It's everybody Vs everybody ;) :)

    Feyenoord must really love Polish players...or maybe it was 3 for the price of 2 :p

    It seems You people know more famous polish players than We (Poles) :)

    And this Lany Poniedzialek (~`Wet Monday') is really a battle between everybody, no matter whether they like it or not. Unfortunatelly in some cases tradition turns into hooliganism. but, you know - there are always some jerks among the people.

    Polish are said to be stealing a lot
    while that is nonsense, it makes for many good jokes :p
    "Why do russian thieves steal two cars in Germany? Becaue they need to go through Poland"

    Sorry ;) No offense meant, or my polish friends IRL would have beaten me up multiple times already :)

    Hi! I'm Pole.
    I want to say that we don't have any polar bears (except the ZOO) and we don't speak Russian.
    But unfortunalety Poles like stealing everything, even tracks (I don't know for what.)

    I know a geat joke!

    Devil with German, Englishman, Frenchman and Pole stood on the edge of a precipice.
    He told German:"Jump!"
    German answered:"No"
    Devil said:"This is an order!"
    And German jumped.
    Next he told Englishman:"Jump!"
    Englishman answered:"No"
    Devil said:"A gentleman would jump."
    Englishman jumped.
    Next he told Frenchman:"Jump!"
    Frenchman answered:"No"
    Devil said:"But this is in fashion."
    And Frenchman jumped.
    Then devil told Pole:"Jump!"
    Pole answered:"No"
    So devil said:"Ok, don't jump."
    And Pole jumped.

    What do you think about this?

    As someone who has lived in the U.S. and then spent the past two months living in Poland, I must say that's it a beautiful country and not at all cold. It makes me wonder why people would rather go to France or Italy instead.
